    4Kids gave silent scenes music too. Dubbers are fixated on the idea of having no silence in many animes

    This happens in a lot of dubbed anime that airs on TV, silence is always filled with music. I see PUSA sees fit that we must always have music in the background.

    Its an annoying trait, but its impossible to avoid with dubbed childrens anime

    I don't recall 4Kids doing that. Guess I never payed attetnion then.

    Theres a whole article about it on Dogasu's backpack. Dubbed anime has an aversion to silence in general, and Pokemon is no exception

    Jesse GS the II I was frozen today!

    While it's still a bit of a letdown to hear that PUSA will be filling in the silent spots in the music score again, I'm very pleased to know that they'll be keeping the rest of the Japanese music. I'm even more excited to hear that the new cast is closer to the original Japanese seiyuus, and that the dub will overall be closer to the original vision than ever before (hopefully, this means no more Trainer's Choices, no more shortened opening sequences, and no more totally unnecessary dialogue changes). Season 9 is looking better and better by the day - I'll definitely watch it now.

    Lots of things are wrong with that.

    They aren't. They sound closer to the 4kids ones now than before.

    LOL, PUSA completely butchered the Spurt opening, you need to see it yourself. They shorted it to 30 seconds, took out the scene of all of Ash's old Pokemon, and took out all the 10th anniversary stuff.

    Wrong, oldguard comfirmed the same script writer from Seasons 5-8 is doing Season 9. Its all done by the same scriptwriters and such.

    Well, can you at least let me watch an episode or two before you try to influence my opinion? Which isn't going to work either way, because I'm going to decide for myself whether or not Season 9 is better.

    You know Cyber, all because its the same script writer doesn't mean it will be the same stupid edits. 4Kids dictates that kind of stuff. The scriptwriter will go with what the company tells them

    Edits probably won't happen, but I meant dialouge will be the same.

    Which I didn't have a problem with, as TR's dub lines were 10 times funnier than their Japanese lines.

    And there are very few things that Ash/May/Max/Brock say that is ever out of character or anything, the script writer is top notch. I'm glad they're keeping him.

    Yeah the script writer is pretty faithful with translations. Most stupid edits are paint based. The only thing (s)he can't help is when jokes get lost in translation, like ember to mushroom
     
  12. C.J. Ray

    C.J. Ray I wanted Shaymin! :(

    Well said from a fellow Arbok fan! (Did Arbok get his Japanese voice, that would explain his accent, which I love.)

    I too refuse to speculate what is going to happen until we see the first Season 9 episode, ESP vs. Ghostu! Until we start seeing the new dub titles for those episodes, which will probably not be revealed until mid or late August at the best, it's pointless to say things that are just theories.

    And I don't think they will edit Anabel at all - she's clearly a girl in the games and other media, why would they change her sex now? (I admit that Dogasu steered me away from watching the Legend of Thunder series because of some of the edits.)

    Shift I'll learn you good!

    Thanks for the sentiments.

    However, I like Arbok well enough, but I'm not exactly a fan; I just like the picture, is all. And yeah, that is its original Japanese voice.

    RandomCharizard i hatez pokemonz

    Oh btw, the theme from Mastermind (old and new) is from the 10th aniverrsary song called "Pokemon Go!"
    So Pokemon USA didnt exactly make it.
     
  15. The Big Al

    The Big Al I just keeping Octo

    The script writer would likely just translate the script if left to themselves. Also don't forget LoT was dubbed a different crew altogether. The dub script is actually very close the original in the main series. It's the paint edits and music edits that were annoying. And putting a western joke in place of Japanese joke that wouldn't work in English is fine by me (as long as they aren't corny).

    Shift I'll learn you good!

    Wai-wai-wait! You mean to tell me someone actually liked that song?! And I mean the old song; the new one was much more tolerable.
     
  17. RandomCharizard

    RandomCharizard i hatez pokemonz

    No, the dude was talking about the song he heard from JAA which was the full song. There was no "two songs" because both themes were excerpts

    The Pokemon performance at Comic-Con has made my day.

    I feel like writing to them to tell them how happy they have made me.

    Could that be true? I had tl have my brother go to the one near us, so I never got to hear it. Hard to believe those songs are one and the same.

    So thats where they got it? I wasn't paying much attention to the JAA song, but it was bearable
