    It's nice to see you back. Glad to hear that you like XY.

    ^ That is overstating it a bit. It is pretty good, better than BW, but awesome? Nah...

    Anyway, hello there Shinneth. I miss reading your thoughts about the anime and its characters in the anime section.

    The XY anime is really awesome! :)

    Looks like your thoughts on XY are similar to mine, glad you're enjoying it. I recommend watching it in Japanese if you aren't already, it has a very impressive soundtrack that the dub unfortunately mangles.

    I really dig the theme song.

    Good to know you're alive and enjoying the show Shinneth. I can't say I wasn't curious as to what you thought about XY, I've barely seen any of it sadly but it's heartening to know that when I can catch up it'll be a good watch.

    Wow, that just sounds absolutely terrible. It's a good thing you're moving out soon, best of luck on finding the your purloined cats. What are their names?

    Ah, I see. For the record, i enjoy the transcribed parts. It's interesting to see what Paul's perspective is during those conversations.

    You ever catch that AMV i did of him/team galactic/barry?

    Funny you should bring that up, because at least for chapter 15 (which was the A Pyramiding Rage! adaptation) I fully transcribed scripts from both the dub and the sub and put both to use to make sure absolutely no details would be missed. Normally I'm not that anal, but DP128 is a very special episode to me that requires more than my usual effort!

    Besides that, eh... I'm using dub names, dub format of titling, and using sub dialogue only would probably look out-of-place compared to how the story's dialogue is otherwise. Mostly it's just a clash of styles since I've gone out of my way to make the story more of a dub formatted kinda thing. There's that and I'm far too lazy to get subbed copies of every single episode that I'll be transcribing, whether it's in full or partial. :P

    Yyyyes. Covering two major things that happen in that chapter: Reggie going absolutely apeshit, and Conway getting his 8th badge. I can't help but feel that I could make a better pun from that. :\ Feels like the dub took all the good eight-related puns already.

    Glad you like the value meal title. XD If I can't find a better jab at a fast food chain to fit the bill I'll settle for that one.

    How spoilerific.

    The Beacon Badge Value Meal!
    I'm a sucker for cheesy/pun/reference titles so I actually really like that one. :3

    gaaaaaah I can't stand Mako, now I'm gonna think of that every time I look back at this ><;

    Admittedly I got lazy when I tried to find a name for a male Poison-type Gym Leader, so I looked up a list of fictional poisonous/toxic stuff and came across Mako, which references the main energy source of Final Fantasy VII that's killing the planet the more often it's used. Mako poisoning in that game really fucks you up.

    I thought the red badge and the blue badge were related and both water cause...

    I still think you could try your hand at a parody fic to express your discontent and make humor out of it.
