So what? You call everything at the beginning of every saga. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.Originally Posted by Gliscor'd
I agree. The writers may be good at a lot of things, but wrapping up the cast members' stories in a satisfying way is not one of them. Look at Kasumi's departure (oh I have to go back to my gym BYE), look at Shigeru's departure (I'm going to be a scientist for no adequately explored reason!), look at Takeshi's departure (I'm going to study to do this job that was made up one episode ago!)...most of the goodbyes in this show have this horrible, slapped-together-at-the-last-minute vibe to them.Originally Posted by Hidden Mew
I wouldn't be surprised of the Rocket trio got the same treatment, especially considering how crappy the writers have been to them this series. Everyone expects there to be this huge epic showdown between Satoshi and Sakaki and for the whole "Rocket-Dan gets disbanded" thing to become this major story arc, but the truth of the matter is that the precedence isn't really there. I expect a two-parter at most.
