    Default Iron Chef Japan Returns

    Supposedly Iron Chef Japan is back in production and is supposed to
    air again this month. That's all I can find out there in TV land. If
    anybody sees any further news that it indeed *has* aired, let us know.

    I suspect probably won't dub them right away, but I watched them for a
    year before they even came out with subtitles (where they in
    Chinese?). Then later they dubbed them in English. They were still
    entertaining without either translations. Hopefully the remakes
    aren't a pile of crap like the American version that I haven't seen
    for at least 6 years.

    I'm sure some Japanese nerds will upload them someplace as soon as
    they air.

    What, specifically (cooking-wise) is the difference between the two as
    you see it?

    I haven't watched either in many, many years. I just remember I
    didn't like the American version. Part of the attraction of the
    Japanese show was trying to figure out WTF they're doing - before the
    subtitles and dubbed versions. And even afetr dubbing it had it's own
    attractive quirkyness, not to mention different localized ingredients.

    The original Japanese version was best to me too. Nice to hear that it
    might come back.

    Seriously. I can't imagine the Japanese girls being as silly now as they
    were judging back then.

    I suspect so, but without knowing the Japanese culture fairly
    intimately and the accuracy of the translations it's kinda hard to
    tell the true degree of air-headedness. They could be normal Japanese
    women - possibly even on the bright side ;-) They're probably a lot
    more liberal and independent than most, so <shrug> maybe they have to
    act a little stupid.
