So I guess the Rocket Boss learned our hero's name in this special.Japanese Domino adds that the young trainer's name is Satoshi, but English Domino doesn't give his name to her boss in the dub.
Looked at the Mewtwo Strikes Back comparison and there was one part where I think Dogasu was nitpicking a bit:
This complaint kind of falls flat if you consider the possibility that Giovanni was coming to the lab for a personal progress report, and that the scientists wanted to immediately inform him about Mewtwo's birth.Also, did 4Kids think they were helping explain something here? That the lab assistants called Giovanni, and that's why he was just happening to fly by after the lab exploded? Because if you spend just a few seconds thinking about it, Giovanni would have had to have already been airborne and just about to arrive at the island for him to be able to make it there so soon after its destruction. You don't just "radio a helicopter" and then have said helicopter arrive less than two minutes later.
When you see the movie, you should pay attention to the score and see if it fits the whole "past vs future" concept Yuyama was talking about.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...Rocket-Dan Sonansu listed as being in the main movie...
Can you look our for frickin Sonansu please?!?!?! If his being in the movie's credits is more than just an error, I swear I will cry tears of joy!Got anything you want me to look out for when I go to the theaters?
(And also how are Musashi, Kojiro and Nyasu written and what are they up to? :P)
So Sonansu wasn't in the movie... Shame, I was hoping for that, at least. At least Rocket Gang was in-character.The Rocket trio is in this movie, and they're actually in-character, which is nice. And, despite what it says in the end credits, their Sonansu does not appear in the main movie. I guess whoever typed those up was thinking about the Pikachu short at the time? Anyway, I'm sure it'll be fixed for the DVD / Blu-ray.
No. The decision to extend the series past the originally planned year and a half mark would have already been made by the trailer came out.Originally Posted by Nymphia
Maybe? I'd still like it so that we're not stuck with these grainy YouTube videos of it, but it doesn't seem like anyone has any intentions of releasing it.-Do you think that the reason why this trailer isn't in the DVD is because the trailer will cause too much confusion?
I actually do have a plan for episode comparisons, believe it or not. I'm not going to divulge that here, but some of the episodes you listed are on there.Because you don't expect to have many time to do all the comparisons, I think that if I were you, I'll do the comparison of these episodes
I'm holding out on a Japanese DVD release of that (come on, Media Factory, can't you give us at least one more "Best Collection" DVD release before the end of BW?) so I can have a good quality version of the episode to make screencaps from. I don't want to take dozens of crappy looking caps and then have to turn around and cap those all over again because a better looking version of the episode is released.I prefer that you do a comparison of "Princess vs Princess" but I now who terrible is.
Well, the movie is Myuutwo Strikes Back, and I think it's extremely unlikely that there was ever a point where they were going to have a Myuutwo movie *not* feature Myuu in it.Originally Posted by SammyW27
A few things happened. One, my Japanese is leaps and bounds above what it used to be when I did the first version of that comparison (2001? 2002?), so I can more easily see all the changes 4Kids made to the script. Maybe I was working off a crappy fansub back in the early 2000s, one that based a lot of its "translations" on the dub dialogue, and that's what threw me off? Maybe I mistook the lack of cuts and paint edits to be a sign of a good dub? *shrugs*Originally Posted by Masato
As far as the story of the actual special goes...I think everybody's tastes are a little different from what they were ten years ago. A decade ago I was probably super excited about there being a new thing with Myuutwo no matter what the story was, but here in the year 2013 I look at these things with a much more critical eye. I'm sure we've all encountered things we liked when we were younger only to come back to it some time later and think "wait, I liked that!?!?!?"
No, there's no 30 second preview for the first episode of Best Wishes!. There are a few general BW promos that have footage from various episodes, but none specific to episode one.Originally Posted by Fennekin
We didn't need 4Kids' line to convey that message since we see his helicopter show up regardless. The dub dialogue didn't add anything to the scene.Originally Posted by KingMan
Anyway, yeah although I have followed your site since the first year it launched (I randomly discovered it around summer/fall 2000 at the age of 11), I really noticed a huge improvement in everything from the past 13 years on the site,especially around 2003/2004.
Always interesting reading the differences between Movies and their Manga versions.
Though I have a question (and anyone can answer, not just Dogasu): In that bit at the end of the Manga where Genesect has that vision with the cameos (bet some people are wishing that had happened in the film), who's the little kid with the Jigglypuff and the dude with the Arcanine I recognize the others, but them.
Please repeat to yourself, "It's just a show. I should really just relax!"
I thought the dude with the Arcanine was supposed to be Ritchie.
He didn't have one in the show, but that's who I thought of looking at him.
Sooooo, Dogasu, what do you think of Mega Evolutions?

I can't think of who else that would be.Originally Posted by Tendou Soujirou
They're...alright? I'm a bit surprised that Game Freak is going to the trouble of making up brand new character designs when most other games with beserk modes / limit breaks just have their characters glow and call it a day, but I guess they're really trying to go all out this Generation.Sooooo, Dogasu, what do you think of Mega Evolutions?
So the Orange Archipelago is based off of the Galapagos Islands, then? I always thought they was based off of the Ryukyu Islands.
