    Shit man, I don't know if I can watch this episode...Chiisaki Mono always makes me tear up. The best Movie Song, imo, and even the dub kept it...mostly...in tact.
    I sorta think that's the reason why jirachi is silent due to the death of the original voice actress.

    I actually thought it did speak but it turns out it was mouthing words.

    Hhmm... So that's why it sounded different to me. I completely forgot about that remix to tell the truth, so I just cheked and the one in BW052 is indeed the remix.

    And also the "Seting off" original series BGM played a couple of episodes ago.
    Do you remember which episode? I can't imagine something like that escaping my notice.
    My bad again, it wasn't "Seting off", but "The Matter is Settled". My point remains since it's from the same original series soundtrack, so it's older than the Giratina movie music. It played exactly one couple of episodes ago (BW130), when Satoshi was training with Trancell at sunrise.
    It doesn't matter if you aren't going to reach the goal, as long as you're still happy doing the trajectory.

    I guess I should have explained it better, I felt like the resolution and their defeat was way too quickly. This is the same Morobareru that destroyed Pikachu with Body Slam back at the beginning of Episode N. Once Kibago and Pikachu were healed they managed to defeat Morobareru and Pururiru easily.

    Agreed. Though I think what they're doing now is treating the Rocket-Dan mottos like those transformation sequences from one of those magical girl shows and will probably keep recycling the same animation until the end of the series.
    Which is weird considering they just have so many different versions to use, then again I guess I could write off quite a few of the Black and White motto animations due to the words not matching the scenery.

    I'm confused...is the comet in this episode the Millenium Comet? Also, are any M06 references made in this episode whatsoever? (Other than Chiisaki Mono)

    I'm sort of torn. I liked the episode and its outcome. I liked Holly and her determination. But I also liked having Jirachi only in the movie. (That movie is in my top 5 Pokemon ones; might even be #1.)
    Well, because that can't happen anymore, I have to say I liked it.

    I was unaware the original seiyuu died. Rest in peace.
    I don't even like fruit smoothies. Give me a double-tall half-caf latte with foam any day.

    I think I may have found my favorite DA! episode so far - and all because of the ending and the insert song from Movie 6 that played.

    I was both surprised and unsurprised to hear Chiisaki Mono being played. I was half expecting some movie 6 music to be used, but at the same time...I didn't think they'd actually play that song there. It felt good to hear it.

    I don't see why so many people are having trouble reconciling this episode with the events of the sixth movie because... well, there's nothing to reconcile. It's a different Jirachi altogether. We've had multiple legends in anime so far, why should Jirachi be any different?

    A very enjoyable filler. I'm not expecting TPCi to use "Make A Wish / A Small Thing" but it would be nice if they could either use the dubbed or Japanese version. They could probably use the instrumental or orchestral versions which would be a nice fit. I'm more on the side of them using one of their MIDI tracks but all that said, I think that Follow Your Star would be a nice fit, the Alex Nackman version would fit nicely.

    We've had plenty of speaking legendaries who have been silent when they appear in the anime. I doubt this has anything to do with it.

    Dang I sorta forgot that when the talking legendaries appear in the TV series, they don't talk that much.

    Lovely episode and a great way to honour not only the 10 years anniversary for the Jirachi movie but also Jirachi's deceased voice actor. The soundtrack went right in the emotions, dang! ;A;

    Although the episode felt really rushed once TR barged in. The first half had a decent pace, I think, but then everything happened kinda at once. Jirachi attacks, faints, TR blasts off, DADDY APPEARS, save Jirachi, water yay, bye bye Jirachi, the end. Could've been evened out a bit more, maybe? But this is minor nitpicking, still a really nice episode with good feelings all around.

    The animation and art is quite nice this episode!

    Da! as a whole has been kind of lackluster, animation-wise, especially compared to a lot of Episode N, so this was nice to see. I really liked Holly's design.

    The inclusion of a second facet to her wish, in the form of wanting to reunite with her father, helped make this episode less of a rehash/condensed version of the Jirachi and Reshiram/Zekrom movies (the former for obvious reasons, the latter for the restoration of her land's former glory).

    The lovely art and excellent music choice (Chiisaki Mono as an insert song!) made the finale have more emotional impact.

    "Get better, Jirachi. Forget my wish from before! If you'll be okay again, that's enough. That's my one wish!"

    I just really liked that scene. Fittingly dramatic and moving, I think.

    ... and this Jirachi is clearly different. ^^;; That movie's Jirachi needed a child to bond with to wake up. This Jirachi is so shy that it took Holly practically the whole week to even be able to approach it without frightening it! Moreover, this one's quieter and only uses human language once (and we don't hear its voice, just see it mouth "arigatou"/"thank you" as has been mentioned). And the most obvious difference?

    This Jirachi is green-eyed. Movie Jirachi is blue-eyed.

    [sarcasm]I can't wait to see this episode dubbed and how they'll replace Chiisaki Mono.[/sarcasm]

    Was Jirachi voiced by Mika Kanai? It sounded like Emolga to me, just instead "emo" it said "jira".

    I don't know about Jirachi's seiyuu, but I hope they use the half-English, half-Japanese Chiisaki Mono/Make a Wish song. ;^;

    They have the rights, don't they?
