    Regardless of if anything happens in these last few episodes (which, meh, it's more likely nothing happens with anything), you have to seriously be blind to think there was no explicit hinting that Serena still has a thing for Ash. Girl keeps a literal encyclopedia of his inspirational quotes to...

    Why don't you all shift away from the "what if"s and "could have been"s? Talk about something more tangible. Be it the past or any good fanfics of the pairing. That's something to actually maintain interest around, especially since fanfics are a concept that endure both 1) outside the bounds of...

    It's a ship in a TV show that has never focused on ships. Please don't take it that seriously...

    That was the exact one being talked about. From my memory, I don't think it got as bad as all that, as Ash was still a bit more noobish than other fics, but given he does win the Silver Conference, it definitely trended towards more "my Ash is smarter". Personally, I'm also someone turned off...

    Given it was a series that had Serena turn into a raging, jealous witch every time Ash made contact with other girls, I think it kinda falls into the realm of what they were talking about with regards to romance in fanfics. I didn't care for where that series was taking Serena.

    I mean, if you're looking for fics/series where Serena isn't treated that way, I'd say to give mine a whirl. Romance isn't the main focus of it, in the end, dealing more with larger concepts in the realm of identity, the future, legacy, among other things, but with Ash and Serena as the main...

    All I'll say is that while Tomioka wrote the M8, reminder that he hadn't been on series construction since XY (with the next series being the first time he's back in that chair). SM and JN upended a lot of the world he pretty much helped to create since day 1. And also remember that Tomiyasu...

    I'm starting to wonder what happened to you all that you guys seem like you're screaming each other's ears off either to say "Hold on, Amour hope is on the way", "Amour is doomed" or "writers are hacks" (which, for the record, Tomioka remains one of the hardest working screenwriters in modern...

    I don't see what this has to do with anything. If another anime does it this way it must be good? Other anime are just as prone to bad writing, perhaps even moreso at times. And besides, how is it bad writing to not capitalize on something...that has nothing to do with the moment. Like it's...

    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.
