Crayon Shin Chan Movies, Anyone?

This past months, we've had Crayon Shin-chan movies shown on our free TV (NTV7, specifically) every Sunday evening. A movie is split to two showings, each for an hour. After watching so many Shin-chan movies, I realized that this anime has a movie out every year.

(For those not in the know, Crayon Shin-chan follows the antics of five-year-old Shinnosuke "Shin" Nohara,his parents, baby sister, neighbors, and friends and is set in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture, Japan). I always thought Kasukabe is a fictional town.

I am not a fan of Shin-chan, but both my boys (Zaini and Raimie) loves it. Even though the anime shown in Malaysia is rather heavily censored than the full Japanese version, it still doesn't suit my "motherly" sensibility. Heh! Also, there are lots of lost in translation moments when this anime is dubbed to another language. (Did I tell you I hate dubbed TV programs?)

And oh, the Malay language comic of Shin-Chan is called Adik/Dik Cerdas (rough translation: brilliant kid). When I was in college, my friends used to spend a lot of money buying the comic (the Shin-chan comics and Doraemon's).

  1. my kids enjoy watching crayon shin-chan too.

  2. My brother and I love crayon shin-chan. After every episode, he'll mimic his antics and I would have a great laugh over it.

    Well, that was a couple of years back but it still bring back memories whenever we talked abou it.

    Crayon forever!!

  3. @life ramblings & C K,
    kids like them, but even as a kid I am not a fan of crayon shin-chan. No memories for me about this boy! :D

    Raimie does like to wiggle his butt imitating shin-chan.
