    Oh, I completely agree. The only reason I even bother with the edited, dub-only DVDs is because I want to legally own decent quality versions of the episodes so I can take screencaps from them. And while I do complain about the shitty video quality of the Kanto and Orange Island sets, I do realize that they're better than nothing.

    Sorry.

    I meant to say: I really don't think the lack of a bilingual release has anything to do with NoA and everything to do with 4Kids, who doesn't give the Japanese version of their shows to DVD publishers, and TPCI, who probably figure that if they've been releasing dub-only DVDs for so long that releasing bilingual DVDs now would be pointless.

    OOC isn't limited to dubs.
    I never once implied that. Please don't put words in my mouth.

    Anyway, any reason why so many of the manga covers on your site are bw?
    Someone else who didn't read those paragraphs at the top of the page! :P

The covers below that are in black and white don't have pages up yet, but it's only a matter of time before I get those pages up as well.

    I never said you implied that nor attempted to put words in your mouth. It was a general statement considering the tone.

    Additionally, not all the color ones HAVE pages.

    Why was the summaries for Pokemon Special taken out? I think it was your site that introduced it to me. 8)

    Well, you might not want to put your "general statements" directly under quoted text next time. It makes it look like what you're saying is directed to the person making the quote.

    Additionally, not all the color ones HAVE pages.
    They most certainly do.

    Or at least an introduction. I remember you mentioning on the Site that it was your 2nd Favorite PKMN manga next to the Dengeki Pikachu ones.

    If anyone could find the dub version of that I would gladly read through a Dogasu comparison of it. And yes, there was a dub version, it just never aired. Maddie Blaustein said the decreased the frame rate and everything.

    I don't remember ever having that, or ever saying that. But if I ever did, it would have been taken down years ago.

    I actually have my doubts about its existence, something I'll explore more in the actual essay.

    Probably yeah. Still I noticed this:

    http://web.archive.org/web/20071013013450/http://www.dogasu.bulbagarden.net/manga/pokemon_special.html

    Published in 1997, Pokemon Special follows the game closer than the anime (but not as close as the manga Pokemon Zensho). The manga follows the adventures of Red and his rival Green ("Blue" in the American version) and later Blue ("Green" in the American version) and Yellow. Red battles all the gym leaders like in the game and anime, but his first pokemon's a Nyorozo. There are a total of thirteen tankobon (graphic novels) in Japan. I personally like this rendition of the manga the second-best, second only to Ono Toshihiro's version. The plot's interesting in that almost all of the gym leaders are corrupt and associated in some way with the Rocket-Dan, and the storyline dealing with Myuu/Myuutsu is really interesting as well.
    Pokemon Special was translated into English by Viz. Viz only published the first seven graphic novels, ending at the Yellow Saga. In Japan, however, the series is still going strong with Volume 21 due out soon. At this time, it's unlikely that Viz will translate and publish the rest of the series. However, you can purchase the graphic novels that they did translate on the official Viz website.

    In 2006, Viz released two "best of" volumes. You can find a listing of what chapters are in what volume here.

    I do not know why Maddie Blaustein would make it up.

    It's entirely possible that she was misremembering things, though.

    Japan went out of their way to erase all traces that the episode ever existed, yet we're to believe that they sent a tape over to 4Kids for them to dub? It doesn't add up.

    Usually the Japanese companies send the anime before they even air in Japan to be dubbed. 4kids probably was the first 52 episodes in a bunch, including ESP. Then when it aired in Japan, they decided to fix that one scene (as Blaustein mentioned), but the American public soon found out and if they aired it they would of got in a ton of trouble.

    According to the commentary on the Pokemon 4Ever DVD, 4Kids didn't even get the show to start dubbing until April 1998. The Porygon incident happened in December 1997.

    Oh, I guess 4kids got Yugioh differently then. They got the first 52 episodes of 5Ds way before even episode 35 aired in Japan.
