    I noticed from watching the RAW episodes that 4Kids often had a problem with keeping the ending BGM in the earlier episodes..

    The sad piano music wasn't heard until episode SEVEN but it was heard I think almost 4 times before that. Also a piece that we don't really hear is the ending music in episode 3 - we heard that at the begining a lot, and I remember it when Ash won against Pete n round 2 in the Indigo League.

    While they did keep a LOT of music in Indigo, they really did replace a lot too if you watch the raw.

    Also I noticed Dogasu in your Squirtle comparison that it was stupid for Squrtile to just go with Ash...

    The Squirtles were ditched by their trainers, and then when Ash sacrificed himself so that the Squirtle wouldn't get hit by the bomb he realised that he would be a great trainer, and decided that he was a caring trainer and wanted to go with him. I didn't think it was that bad of an ending/reason to go with Ash.

    Yeah...4Kids replaced quite a few pieces of BGM in Kanto. Not as much as they would end up replacing in seasons three onward, but there are still quite a few pieces that get axed for no real reason.

    As far as the Zenigame go...its whole "wanting to go with Satoshi" thing just seemed really *off* to me. I mean, yeah, Satoshi jumped out and saved the leader from getting blasted by bombs. But that doesn't mean that it's logical for the thing to just up and leave its other abandoned friends so it can travel around the world with a human - especially when it was just threatening to kill one of its friends (sorry..."dye her hair") not too long before.

    If the anime had shown more scenes of Zenigame being surprised / moved by Satoshi's actions, then it would have been a little less jarring. As it stands, though, the episode just reeks of "holy shit the episode's almost over and we forgot to have Satoshi capture it."


    The next comparison will be up later tonight (my time).

    Also on the front page for the Squirtle ep, right where you link to the comparasion, you spell "the" as "tthe".

    That's no fun! You're supposed to stealth edit and then deny it!

    Hi!

    I read your comparison on "Mystery of the lighthouse", and I thought it was pretty good. In fact, I think Misty's line in the Japanese version was somewhat better than the dubbed version (not that I necessarily hated it, but you know... It was at least factually correct. Also, even though I don't like people berating other people, Ash DID deserve it, after all. I mean, he was going all "In your face" about his accomplishments, and you know, I really dislike bragging.)

    One question though, Wasn't it Charmander and Sqirtle who actually followed ash and not Charmander and Bulbasaur?

    also, off topic, but, did you find out if the second movie reference in "The Mystery is History" was in the original version or not? I had to ask since I hadn't gotten a PM in reply since i stated that it was in "The Mystery is history" in a reply to your question of what episode it was in.

    You're right it was Charmander and Squirtle who followed Ash - Dogasu makes a flub, yet if this were 4Kids he would crucify them haha.

    Another Error on the site I noticed is that you said that you had the comparison for "Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden", but it's Bulbasaur's Hidden Village.

    I can't WAIT for the new Kanto comparisons...good job Dogasu. I remember on yoru old Mystery At The Light House you thought 4Kids made a Godzilla reference when they said "so size does matter" ...I don't think that was the case, glad it was removed.

    I'm a fan who does a website in his spare time. 4Kids is a professional company that got paid to work on the series.

    Naturally, I'd expect more from a company whose job is to get this kind of thing right than I would from a simple fansite.

    But yeah, I'll correct it in the next update.

    Well...the title's correct on the actual comparison page, though.

    what makes Onasaka Masaya so special? Nobuyuki Hiyama, another extremely seasoned seiyuu, was just voicing Akira about six episodes earlier... hell, why even make a case over seasoned seiyuu when this is a series where Megumi Hayashibara and Miki Shin'ichirou (among others) are regulars?

    And I gotta say, I'm surprised... not a single reference to the outright statement of "there are 150 Pokemon" under your thoughts for this episode. Though that white button on the Zukan makes me wonder how different the anime would be had they actually implemented the damn thing rather than letting a fair number of Satoshi's Pokemon rot until the league (a number which would only increase over the years, leading to all our favorite "neglected Pokemon" discussions). Considering it wasn't implemented, and doesn't even exist in the games ('cause otherwise it'd make them too damn easy by letting you switch your tired Pokemon for a healthy party at will), they really shouldn't have mentioned this white button in the first place.

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    Eh...it's just something that caught my attention when I was looking up Masaki's profile on Bulbapedia a few days ago. Had I done the same for Akira when I redid the Episode 008 comparison six months or however long ago it was, I probably would have mentioned his VA as well.

    And I gotta say, I'm surprised... not a single reference to the outright statement of "there are 150 Pokemon" under your thoughts for this episode.
    Well...the way Masaki's speech was worded (in both versions) told us that there were at least 150 pokemon. He also mentioned, in both versions, that there are many, many other pokemon out there that they don't know about.

    At the same time...Masaki is a crazy guy who gets stuck in costumes, can't recognize the mysterious pokemon as a giant Kairyuu, and apparently knows about Myuutwo but doesn't bother say anything about it to any of his colleagues. I think the guy might have a few screws loose.

    Though that white button on the Zukan makes me wonder how different the anime would be had they actually implemented the damn thing
    I agree. When I rewatched the episode for the comparison, I was like "waitaminute...it can do that!?. Since when?" I can't be the only one who completely forgot about that abandoned plot device.

    I think it's kind of funny, actually, that something like the white button on the Zukan is ignored but something as trivial as Hikari's Coin Toss keeps showing up again and again and again.

    The writer in me wants to force them to solve that. They had to have at least been *planning* the movie at that point...

    Side note - i went and did some checkups in Polish dub... and it seems Jetix airing cut around 27 seconds of Squirtle "capture" episode's footage. Both scenes featuring guns (Team Rocket threatening people - 14 seconds - and later people pointing guns at Ash - 13 seconds) were cut. That doesn't cause any harm plot-wise making me wonder why 4kids didn't do that in the first place.

If you look below, the appearance (and function) of the suit that Sand wears is very similar to the one Hyuma wears in Kyojin no Hoshi:
    I'm pretty sure that series didn't make that contraption up. Plus James is seen wearing one in flashback in a (much) later episode.

    Not to go off topic of the current Kanto comparisons, but since this is a Dogasu's Backpack site thread, this would probably be the best place to bring it up. I recently picked up the first box set of Battle Frontier, and when I was watching "King and Queen for a Day!", I noticed that PUSA had replaced the vocal version of 'Gotta Dance' (with Maddie Blaustein singing) with an instrumental version. I also noticed that a lot of the commercial fade-ins were removed from the episodes as well. Just thought I'd mention that. :)

    First off, I'm a big fan of your site Dogasu. I visit it daily and you're a great writer. Second, is it just me or does Diamond and Pearl seem more like a remake of the Kanto episodes? I couldn't help but notice that some of the episodes are almost scene for scene remakes of early episodes. I don't know if it means they're running out of ideas or if it means they just want to improve what could have been better. Either way, it's getting a little annoying because I feel as if they're skipping out on a lot of original concepts in favor of doing what has already been done.
