Thank you so much, I'm really happy that you like my drawing. Don't worry, If you like the show then you like it. But I am glad that you still do understand the reasons why many of us L&S fans hate it. The way Lilo was portrayed was awful, and since she's my #1 favorite character from that movie it really pisses me off what they did to her.
Yes I do agree that the Dub's reasoning was sooo stupid, but the Japanese version is no better either. I don't know why many fans of that anime still wonder why we hate it so much. The title says it all, Lilo and Stitch, a story two outcasts who met and became friends. Chris Sanders made it clear in his book and the movie that both of them have an equal importance and purpose in the story. Lilo and Stitch were both outcast from the people around them and don't fit in as much as they want to, they both have their violent outbursts with a reason to accompany it, both are in danger to be taken away for the best of everyone, and when they meet they realize that strong bond for one another.
Obviously Chris made this story with the intention of letting us know that they would be together for a very long time. If he didn’t then there would be no purpose for Lilo and Stitch to exist, especially since the moral, and plot was all based on their friendship and their similar situation. If he decided to make a 3 movie, (not counting the series’ movies, since I personally don’t consider them canon) it’s pretty obvious that they will still have the same ending with them staying together. The same way he did with Hiccup and Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. All his movies are about that friendship, family and acceptance. But the Anime went against all that, and most of what goes on is just copies of what was already established in the original. Even if they did bring in their characters and change up things here and there, it still isn’t original. It just repeats the same story over, but this time there is no plot, message, and characters that are not memorable at all and knowing that this story is originally a fanfic comic, its not at all surprising why this fails in so many levels.
Both English and Japanese versions screwed it up equally, The Japanese version for even existing, and changing a story that didn’t need to be fixed to begin with. The English version that completely went against what the original characters stood. But there is one thing that the English version did right that the Japanese didn't, the Reunion episode. Yes I still hate that episode so much, but despite this I preffered the English versions explanation better that the Japanese. They made Lilo's presence accepted by everyone, and were more than eager to have her back again (except Yuna). Even the Japanese Stitch (sorry, but he is way to out of character to just be called Stitch) is head over heels with her presence and totally ignores Yuna throughout most of the episode just to be with her.
