    "Oh no we can't stop fans from spoiling the episode before people get to see it, what do we do?"

    Finals IV: Partner (1221)

    I went into this fight with one hope: "Please be good." And... This episode did just about everything right. I mean sure, I can nitpick that the Kyodaimax rematch was almost entirely irrelevant or how the music they played in the Pokémon Center scene is like the most nothing piece of music this...

    November 11th: PM2019 132 - The Finals IV: Partner

    And here I was expecting that the titles for part 3 and 4 together would form "saikyou ouja". O well.

    Journeys still has 16 episodes left in Japan apparently

    They said a number that they then retracted, and that feels highly improbable looking at what's taking place in the story right now. Can I imagine there being a few more episodes after the finals? Sure. Another three months' worth of episodes though? Yeah I can't possibly imagine Project Mew and...

    October 28th: PM2019 130 - The Finals II: Toying

    What we have here is basically a non-summary summary. It's the kind of summary you do when you either don't want to reveal anything specific, or you just don't have any specifics to give. And it's not at all unusual to go "Who will win?!" at... basically any point in a multi-episode fight in a...

    October 14th: PM2019 128 - Climax! The Night Before the Decisive Match: Satoshi VS Dande!!

    Speaking as someone who can actually read that tweet... It does read rather snarky. "Well if you hate recap episodes that much, then wouldn't you be better off just rewatching past episodes and trying to relive the excitement that way or something?" It, at the very least, has pretty strong...

    October 14th: PM2019 128 - Climax! The Night Before the Decisive Match: Satoshi VS Dande!!

    I would complain... But at this point it almost feels like bullying a disabled infant. This is just sad.

    Journeys still has 16 episodes left in Japan apparently

    That... does feel less weird than the idea that we still have four months' worth of stuff left. I mean it would still mean the show ends up running past the expected end date, but it's less of a "Sweet merciful lv100 shiny Arceus, everything got skewed for months when the show was already at its...

    The Semifinals IV: Impact (1214)

    ...The finals won't start until the week before the next series starts? I mean unless PM19 goes on past the release of SV but I mean, it's blatantly in the endgame right now and I can't see them not syncing up the release of the game with a new anime.

    September 23rd: PM2019 126 - Go for Dream! Go's Road to Mew!!

    Of course getting angry doesn't solve anything. But also... This show has literally never, at any point, given any reason to expect an "amazing final battle."

    September 23rd: PM2019 126 - Go for Dream! Go's Road to Mew!!

    Three recaps so close together at the climax while the show is also losing several episodes because of other things taking its timeslot all the time, combined with the actual content in the non-recap episodes clearly struggling to hold itself together... Oh yeah, and even aside from the simple...

    September 23rd: PM2019 126 - Go for Dream! Go's Road to Mew!!

    By now I'm just praying that the mess going on right now is just because they have flat-out given up on PM19 and are putting all their eggs into drastically overhauling stuff to make the next series actually good instead. ...I mean I don't expect that to be the case. But at least if that were...

    POKÉTOON - English dub coming June 17th!

    I see I seem to have tempted fate and the dub is actually sloppy to the extreme? Well that sucks. Well, at least there is still the Japanese version with actually decent subs but... how exactly do you manage to make a dub of a Pokémon short where you forget to give the Pokémon voices? Like, I...

    The Possibilities are Endless for Chloe and Eevee! (1209)

    I really appreciate how this episode was an actual episode with actual writing and plot and characterization and all that stuff that actual episodes typically have. ...Man it does not take anything to please me right now, in light of last week...

    Anime Questions V2 *READ BEFORE MAKING NEW THREADS*

    No such thing exists as of yet, afaik. They are releasing a theme song collection soon that will include a DVD or BD (depending on which version you buy) with creditless versions of all the PM19 themes though. https://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/SRCL-12073 So... either buy this CD or look around...

    August 12th: PM2019 121 - The Climax Begins: Satoshi's Masters Tournament Experience

    That's... not how any of this works. Recap episodes are pretty consistently a sign that the production is falling hopelessly behind and that they literally couldn't finish the next proper episode on time. I don't know what's happening behind the scenes but between the recap episodes, the fact...

    How come the composer for the anime was changed for Journeys?

    Aye. Hayashi has done a couple of good tracks, but on the whole I consider him a pretty clear step down. Despite him having produced far less music for the series than Miyazaki, my single least favorite BGM track in Pokémon still came from Hayashi. (It's High Speed Battle, for the record. Track...

    How come the composer for the anime was changed for Journeys?

    Koko was Miyazaki, with songs composed by Okazaki Tai'iku. Hayashi was not involved.

    I'm almost 33 years old, and I feel like I again prefer Pokemon anime over "deeper", adult things like Evangelion, LOGH, Monster, etc...

    One Piece is my favorite manga and I also happen to love Pokémon Sun & Moon. Elitism of all kinds is dumb tbh. People are allowed to like what they want. Now excuse me while I go watch more Precure. ...Yeah I too feel like after becoming Officially An Adult I've got a newfound appreciation for...

    POKÉTOON - English dub coming June 17th!

    ...Wohoo? I mean, I see no reason that the subtitles on the Japanese version would go away because of this *knocks on wood* and TPCi's treatment of side projects tends to be... okay, so... Yay, everybody wins for once! I get to keep my beloved Japanese audio featuring Minase Inori in the third...
