    No Bashing or Flaming other members, characters, or shippings. You are allowed to voice criticism/skepticism towards the ship here, but if we get the feeling that you are only here to constantly discourage Amourshippers and/or talk about how unlikely or bad the ship is, please leave. From the...

    Look, it's fine and dandy to want characters to get together, but none of it has been a main function of the show. I'm still an Amourshipper. But at this point (even perhaps in the past) I don't expect it to become some canon thing. That's what fanfics are for. including my lengthy current 11...

    Wow...this kind of statement is the exact reason people think Serena is just her crush on Ash. Serena's her own character. She doesn't, and should never, revolve around Ash, and thinking she should shows just how much more you care for the ship than the actual characters inside the ship...

    I, too, would find something lackluster if I skipped over the entire story just to get to the scene I wanted to read (which, yes, is what you said when you reviewed at the start of Book 2) and wanted to make the story my own instead of acknowledging what the author was actually trying to convey...

    Come on, man. We once had the Kalos Elite Four battle theme played while Ash, Serena and Clemont were running down a hallway in fear in the Espurr episode. It genuinely doesn't mean anything. Unless you mean they were subtly hinting that the hallway was a member of an Elite Four and they were...

    Considering the Alola League reused the same battle track once an episode, I wouldn't put too much stock into the name of a track, especially when the name of said track came from the games. Over time, themes take on a life of their own and can come to mean something different. Its titling is...

    Definitely fanmade. That third outfit, which is functionally "Serena in Gloria's clothes" has been around for at least 2 years and all she did was really alter the hair to be more in line with her new hairstyle in the anime than the typical XY style.

    Personally I think it's Animedia paying money, but also that it was probably supposed to air yesterday instead of a week ago. Wasn't this week's episode originally slated for last week, after all? So in that case the magazine would have streeted a whole week before the return instead of that...

    Uh...exactly what show do you think you're watching...? One thing for fanfics to do it, but even in the XY era, they weren't gonna do this, especially for Ash who has all the romantic intelligence of a rock.

    I'm gonna offer a different take: the fans ascribe more meaning to the ribbon than the anime does. Yes, it was an important symbol, but not so important that it needs to be addressed that Serena has changed it out. It's not like the anime ever verbally gave it significance beyond "oh, Serena's...

    Again, my personal preference. I'm happy with a less technically better animated show if it means I feel every event through dynamic angles and shots.

    I generally find JN's animation flat with weak cinematography and a lack of impact compared to a lot of past series. More accurately, I think they exchanged animation impact for animation fluidity without realizing fluidity without impact is just as bad as having no animation.

    Personally, the ribbon is unimportant. I'm sure she still has it, but doesn't need to wear it all the time. Girl carries around an encyclopedia of Ash quotes in her head that she delivers to others. She doesn't need a ribbon to say "yes, I still carry a torch".

    Because attaching your self-worth to whether or not someone finds you attractive is the first sign of a toxic relationship. Serena's better than that. It's not positive to think you need to be "worthy" of someone. It's no different than making someone a prize to be won. Or putting them on a...

    I wholeheartedly disagree that's what it meant. "You are my goal" was easily one of the most beautifully ambiguous statements made. But nowhere in there should I think it read "I'm doing this for you". That's the whole point. She cares for him. Wants to be with him. Wants to be like him. But...
