    Default The How Much Japanese Music Is Kept In The Dub Thread

    So I decided to go through every episode of Pokemon in Japanese & English to see how many pieces of Japanese music 4Kids & TPCI keep in their dubs. Note I have placed Holiday Hi-Jynx & Snow Way Out after Electric Soldier Porygon like how it was supposed to be and Princess VS Princess before the Farfetch'd episode so the inconsistency with Jessie having Lickitung not being an inconsistency, and having The Purr-Fect Hero after Who Gets To Keep Togepi. I have decided to not count the Opening, Ending, Eyecatch, Oak's Lecture & Next Episode Preview when I view the Japanese episodes as they always get replaced or not shown at all in the dub. I also point out facts about who catches what or which badge Ash obtains, when the OP/ED switch and other stuff, so now the list. Thanks goes out to Dogasu's site for the Japanese episode titles and Blue_Drifblim for working on the Season 11 & 12 episodes. Some of those are incomplete, so one of us will complete them. I do count Insert songs when I count the BGM as it does play in the background like the score does.

    This is very impressive. You must have spent a lot of time on this. By the way, in some episodes, the total BGM kept is 12.5, or something like that. Are you referring to times when the Dub only kept a portion of a Japanese music cue?

    Yep when it says 12.5 or anything like it that means the they only left a portion of the original music, so yes you are right. I have been at this for a week and a half now, and I plan on doing every episode.

    I thought that the Kanto stuff had the majority of the original music in it, minus insert vocal themes. Pretty cool.

    You know that's what most people think that 4Kids kept all of the BGM except for the vocal songs in Kanto save for Pokemon Ondo in Episode 33.

    I was so happy when I heard Pokemon Ondo in that episode! I just always liked that song. ^^

    I never noticed it when I saw that episode when I was a kid. It wasn't until 2 1/2 years ago that I noticed as by then I was familiar with the Japanese vocal songs.

    I was gonna say, "Who gives a damn?" but then I saw your list. And it's amazing. D:

    ("Who gives a damn?" is probably not a good question to ask on here anyway xD)

    lol no probably not. I just hope to help people out with this thread.

    EDIT: It seems like this morning's new episode DP 142: Where No Togepi Has Gone Before kept all of the original music. Having not seen this episode in Japanese I don't know if this is true or not.

    Wow, this list is great. I didn't know there were episodes where they actually kept all of the music, although I did know 4Kids did sometimes keep a lot of music in the early episodes. I look forward to the lists for other episodes, too ^^

    Today I should have Episodes 67-73 & Movie 1 up, and obviously we all know movie 1's dub replaced all the music, but still I'm including it as this is a complete list.

    The title card of today's Togepi episode had ironicly kept the Japanese sound.

    I forgot to mention I don't count it when 4Kids replaces a piece of Japanese music with another piece of Japanese music like in episodes 18, 21 & 28 when they used the regular title screen music when they weren't supposed to.

    Wow, this is a really in depth and useful thread. Thanks for taking the time to go through all of this.

    I've always wondered how they go about deciding what music to kep and what to take out. It seems like most of the shows keep about half, but then there are sections where all of it is kept for a while? Does it have to do with the process of dubbing the voices?
