    Wow!

    That's awesome!



    But wait, I'm confused about something......

    Does that mean the Japanese fans will be able to watch the dubbed (English) version of Mastermind?

    Or does that mean they'll be able to watch it in Japanese on that website?

    When/if this gets subbed, I'm watching it, because the Japanese voices would be easier on the ears than the nails-on-a-chalkboard English ones.

    I wonder how they would react if we told thm about the situation here.

    I doubt anyone on that side of the Pacific would really give a damn.

    They were vaguely interested for a time, but in the end, really didn't care all that much, and were surprised we really cared all that much either.

    I wonder if the voices will be as good since THEY are ones having to dub and have constraints to fit the flaps...

    They probably wrote the Japanese script while animating the episode.

    The episode was apparently recorded back in Februrary. (Or Kasumi's VA did it back then anyway.) They probably did it when they were making it for 4Kids/PUSA.

    I know the voices will be better, but I wonder if the dialogue will suck as badly as ours did.

    I remember someone mentioning the weird writing. Like for some reason Dr. Yung knew all about Mewtwo despite the fact that should be impossible, as everyone involved with it is either dead, had their memories erased, or has never met him before.

    1) Voice acting in Japanese productions is always done after the animation is finished. So Mastermind won't be any different for the voice actors than the other 400+ episodes were.

    2) The Japanese couldn't care less about matching lip flaps.

    - from everything I've read it's the exact opposite. The script and storyboard are done first, than the actors record their part and then the animation is drawn around them.
