well. Pokemon has had many opening themes in Japanese, and we are all
probably familiar with the "Gotta Get "em All!" rap they replaced it
One Piece, which has awesome openings and endings, was replaced with
a turgid techno rap of the title repeated over and over - same for Yu-
Gi-Oh, without the awesome Japanese music part. :-)
I have no idea why the American ideal for an opening theme seems to
be the title words repeated over and over mixed as if by a 8 year old
DJ wanna be. But that does seem to be the standard.
I like how Adult Swim on Cartoon Network is leaving in the end
themes, but they still cut some of the openings for time. I also like
how the end theme for Yu Yu Hakusho was translated and re-recorded,
which I thought was a fair middle ground. (I personally prefer to
listen to pop music in foreign languages so I can pretend I don't
know how insispid they are. ;-))
