    [QUOTE=fierydestroyerbowser;bt300484]Or script accuracy alone...[/QUOTE]
    Yeah: making the English scripts bearable, and so that the lines that are said from the characters actually sound like something actual human beings would say in real life is a lot better than script accuracy with lines like "Awesome, the way you took that," or "Nathaniel reminds me of me!"

    [QUOTE=fierydestroyerbowser;bt300481]I can agree with this. I couldn't even believe how good they did the dub - and the good things weren't limited to keeping in kanji, either.[/QUOTE]

    [QUOTE=Team Gaara;bt300438]Correct me if I'm wrong, but I feel like those lines are right from the games~ Specifically the first one, but I want to say both are.[/QUOTE]
    You're definitely right about the first line also being from the games. However, I feel like diverging from the games would've been a good thing in that instance. Regardless, I can understand their logic now, so thanks for reminding me of that. :)

    I'm not sure about the second one, though. Thanks for your input, though: appreciate it!

    [QUOTE=Contrary;bt300369]FYI, I can't approve comments that go past the first page for some reason, so I suggest making a new blog or something when you cover episode 3.[/QUOTE]
    Thanks for the FYI: actually, I was planning to do just that for Episodes 3 and 4. :)

    [QUOTE=Shiny Blaze;bt300361]Yeah, I'm going to nitpick about this :/ Marowak's original scream was what made that scene especially powerful, an icy, hollow scream of death that made you understand why Cubone suddenly froze. In the dub Marowak did just a simple emotionless mumble as if it tripped over its own feet :/ Did not feel well to me, I wish they'd kept it, but then again dubs usually tone done violent stuff I guess?[/QUOTE]
    I have the same thoughts as you, but what I mean is, I can understand why the dubbers would have to do that. It's not exactly pleasant to hear the Marowak's screaming when it is being killed, you know? Emotionally, that DEFINITELY resonates a lot stronger with me, and I do feel they shouldn't have toned its screaming to death down, but think of the kids that watch that scene...I mean, I'm [I]not[/I] excusing it, but I can understand why it was done. Sometimes, the dubbers don't have much choice in the matter.

    It's that 5 years from now, some people will STILL complain about this. That's what my point is here.

    Marowak's scream was significantly toned down when it was killed. Once again, I don't care, but feel free to nitpick all you want, guys.

    Nice review of both episodes so far! "I'm gonna remember you for this" sounds like something a whiny sore loser should say, not a TR grunt.

    [QUOTE=Dark Kyriaki;bt300197]Sounds like a very good dubbing done here! I hope I get the chance to listen to it - I was wondering how a male voice actor could pull off being the main protagonist of Pokemon (seeing that they're all around ten and 'too young' to have deep voices), but seeing you say it was good, I'm getting real curious :D[/QUOTE]
    Thanks! Hope you enjoy, man. :)

    [QUOTE=Mr. Blaze;bt300185]Update from Bulbapedia (some user has sources, Twitter I think):

    Red is voiced by Bryce Papenbrook
    Blue is voiced by Lucien Dodge (voices Chili in the regular anime)
    The Lass appears to be voiced by Christina Vee

    And you were right on Oak and Brock's voices.

    Nice review by the way![/QUOTE]

    Thanks for the information!

    EDIT: Minor note: Christina Vee also voices Red's Nidoran M.

    I think the sub I watched did translate the part where Mr. Fuji is talking about the Kalos region and the Mega stones.

    Edited to say that Kyle Hebert confirmed on his Facebook that he is Oak.

    IIRC, it is the one where Red is saying "kuso, kuso, kuso" and banging his Pokeball against his head: the sub I watched translated it underneath as "Damn it, damn it, damn it." In the English dub of it, he doesn't say anything, and just grunts when he's doing so.

    I didn't see a sub where Red said "fu*k" to Sakaki, though, so I don't think it's that one. It could be, though: my memory is a little foggy since I haven't watched it in JPN in a while.
