Cheren as a character can stand well on his own. He doesn't need some blond childhood friend that he only interacted with like three times and never battled before in the games to support him. I'm interested in seeing his views from the games be put and what they may bring.
I hope Bianca appears along with Cheren soon. Since they know each other in the games, I'd like to see it happen in the anime. And adding to that, I'd like to see her design change as well.
Screenplay: 面出明美 Akemi Omode
Storyboard: 尼野浩正 Hiromasa Amano
Assistant director: 牧野吉高 Yoshitaka Makino
Animation director: 篠原隆 Takashi Shinohara
And here's something I just thought of and am curious about...
You think he'll play a role & help out against TP & TR or is he just showing up for the heck of it like Marlon and (to a lesser extent) Draydon
Akemi OMODE - Anime News Network
Okay looking resume. Excited to see how she is.
According to all the info abt this ep till now,, it seems this is just a setup for the TP to show up with their plans in grand manner or will it be vice versa(namesake gym leader ep)
Cheren in the anime? After N joins the group. Oh boy, do Hilda or Hilbert appear? What if Rosa/Nate do? Or when will we see Ghetsis? Seven Sages? Will Bianca be there? Will they meet Cheren at Aspertia Gym or something? Wow this is getting cool. I AM SO HAPPY!
Too many kawaii smiles and questions, right? I just can't help it. Just like I couldn't help it when I saw the trailer for Episode N.
