4.0 out of 5 stars Strictly for the hardcore fans August 1, 2011
By Snarky

Greetings, Funimation.

**For your kind consideration**

I have been a HUGE fan of Shin Chan since episode one, and I just want to share a quick nugget about myself. I am one dedicated fan. The kind of guy who said, "Well, Weezer (the Green Album) is good, if you like Weezer." And I stand by that brand of loyalty today. So, needless to say I bought Shin Chan sea. 3 pt. 1 'sight unseen'. And as long as you're dubbing it, I plan to keep buying. However, as a super happy fun time loyal fan I must be candid in my review. So here goes. Cons - What's up with all the generally GRATUATIOUS perverstion and psychotic killer tendancy in almost every episode? Who decided that the core characters of the show, Shin, Georgie, Maso, Boo, and Penny should take a total back seat to so many random 'extras' who all seem to share the same sexually deviant or homicidal personality.. Its like Miss Polly took extra strength nympho pills, and over 2 years managed to infect 3/4 of the entire cast. Even Mitzi to an extent has traded her ball-busting cynicism that I've grown to love for wonton tripe. Seriously, so far, the series is playing out more like Mystery Science Theater 3000, where a small group of wiseguys are merely improvising adolescent quips over a classic piece of Japanese family sitcom. Also, who thought it was a good idea to turn Nanako into a gold-digging star-humper? Or, that Penny's father's abuse holds some newfound sentimental value to her?? It was hard enough to watch some of the Penny-based episodes of season 1, and 2, but those in season 3 are boarderline unwatchable. I understand that there's no chance of this show ending up on TV in season 3, but that's no excuse to compromise quality family satire for shock's sake.. just cause you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shin-Chan Fan August 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
NOT a show for kids. This is adult humor.
Okay guys, I LOVE Shin-chan, I looooove the voice actors, and I, in general, love Funimation. So I got the new Shin DVD set and preordered the second one. I watched this set and nearly every line is about sex, at least with some characters. I thought all of the filthy jokes from the first 2 seasons were hilarious and so are most of the ones I've seen here. It's just nearly EVERY new character is acting like a hipster horndog and eventually it looses a small bit of it's charm. Season 3 doesn't have quite as much diversity as the first 2 seasons which gave us more adorable situational humor allowing the viewer time to dig into the characters and their little "twisted world" right before the hard jokes pop out and shock us. One big dark or dirty joke after the next without pause can make the viewer feel numb. It almost transforms the characters more and more into, well.. psychos trying their best to be hip (think Quentin Tarantino), instead of the oddball overwhelmed maniacs we all adore. Things do feel more balanced after you adjust a little, but never as balanced as seasons 1&2. It't all shock and no innocence and the (relative) innocence is what seperates it from its competition (ie. South Park and Family Guy). Honestly, most of what I find overdone were the new characters and all of the teachers. I do realize it's just a continuation or evolution of the brilliant work Funimation did with the first two seasons. For me, at least, it's a bit to far of an evolution. Still enjoyable and funny, they're just not quite the same characters you remember.

What doesn't change much are many of the central cast: Shin, Hiro, Mitzi, Hima, Georgie, Boo, and Ai for example. So there's tons of fun to be had as always. The voice acting... amazing as ever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Loses entertainment value... April 21, 2013
By Marie
Verified Purchase
I am a hardcore Shin Chan fan. This review isn't easy to write because I incredibly loved the last two seasons!

This first part for the third season is more "modern" than anything from the last two seasons. This third season is apparently taking place two years after the last season which makes sense because that's about the time between the dubbing of the second season and this one. Within those two years, it's like a jumbled mess. Basically, things like Georgie's family losing their money and Shin and Paris had dated. You're expected to just go with whatever the show tells you when they bring up all this new information with very little background story, especially with the story aout Georgie's family and the loss of their assets.
Now, when I said this season is more "modern", I meant that there are a LOT of modern references in it. To me, those references really kill the show. It's almost as if this season is relying on connecting to the fans more? I don't watch the show to connect to it; that's basically the exact opposite of why I watch it.

Another aspect that really hurts this season would be the lack of good material for the episodes. Honestly, no Shin Chan fan can deny that this season is far more offensive and shocking than the last two seasons. For example, there's an episode where Shin is supporting Hitler, etc. That episode is actually one of the better ones from the first part of the third season, I found that most of the episodes from the last two seasons were hilarious, and I only dislked a few. Now, into the thrd season, it's the other way around. Most of the episodes aren't as entertaining as before and there are only a select few that I enjoy. I feel as though the material is a bit too "cheesy" and expected.

How many episodes are there going to be in part 1?
It's worth it to me because I love this series and want them to release more. I usually don't buy TV shows this but I am making an exception. I would assume that it will be 13 episodes, haven't heard anything confirming it though.

I hope they are able to continue with the raunchy and dark humor... Read More
