Pokemon: Twilight Wings

    I came into Twilight Wings with low expectations due to the art style, but this series is really off to a great start. The animation is really fluent and it does a great job at fleshing out the characters. I actually really ended up liking Chairman Rose a bit seeing how much of a caring person he is. He truly cares about the people of Galar to go all the way back to talk to that sick kid, & now I'm starting to understand his insistence on unleashing Eternatus (I mean, his reasoning's still stupid, but I can better understand his mindset now). Plus, up until Hop showed up I was starting to wonder if that kid was a young Bede.

    True. I wasn't a big fan of Generations' art style since they made the characters so realistic that they felt out of place for pokemon (especially since they made Cheryl & Cynthia look too sexy)

    I'm a little bummed that this kid isn't a young version of Bede since you can hear his friend call him John at the end. Also, is it me or does his friend sound like he's voiced by Greg Ayers?

    Episode #1 focused on character acting animation, layouts and lighting. You can definitely feel Series Director Yamashita Shingo's influence in the general look of the series. It's so striking and vibrant. One of my favorite things about Yamashita is how he really loves to highlight natural lighting. For example, we can see when light pours into a bedroom without the lights turned on and the manner in which it casts shadows. Kvin has a really good breakdown on his Twitter account.

    That looks nothing like Bede so I'm not sure why you'd think that'd be a possibility

    Oh, they are releasing an English version? Not sure why we had to wait an hour, but whatever.

    One of the most disappointing things about the English dub is the lack of British accents.

    But seriously, I have to give props to the animation. While the character movements are a bit iffy for some reason. Maybe I'm being pedantic. The environment feels really alive when it comes to using light.

    I don't know why they used this style but look ugly to me, i wish they use Penguin Highway style instead... disappointing, really.

    Kawaii Emolga The cutest EVER!!!!

    I really liked this, I wasn't with high expectations, but it turned out to be very good!!!
    I know that Corvinight are huge, but seeing it animated, I was really impressed!
    Btw, when is the second episode coming?

    If you guys want to see other examples of Series Director Yamashita's influence as a digital photographer, he did the digital photography for Boruto Opening #4. He also storyboarded, directed and did some key animation for Naruto Shippuuden Opening #13. You can also see a really good reel of his highlights as an animator here. There's a ton of potential for this series to look great.

    I do find it funny that the crowd gets so hyped for a one on one match that apparently lasts like twenty seconds. Would have been better if they had said it was the end of a longer match.

    The episodes are monthly, so I assume around the same time next month.

    The best way is that a "spin-off" is a success, especially between (young) fans in Japan.

    I mean, Origins wasn't really so popular in Japan

    Some fans may complain, but they will not listen if these complaints does not affect the income of the franchise.

    The Corviknight is really the best part of the episode. Especially how it went to go save the little boy from falling.

    Honestly if they were replacing Ash he would be the perfect new lead

    Already like it. Gorgeous animation and more Galar characters in 6 minutes than 11 episodes of the Show. Even if Johnny and Tommy look like Digidestine.

    Better enjoy it, because it'll take a while for her to appear in the Show. She may not even appear at all the way things are going... <.<

    Thought the little kid was Bede until I watch the dubbed version. Needless to say, I quite liked what I've seen. Wish it'd be a bit longer as it airs monthly and ends in July for a total of seven episodes.

    The dub for this was voice directed by Laura Post at Deluxe Digital Studios, the same company who produced the Little Witch Academia dub for the folks at Netflix. Haven't done much since then so happy to see them be used here.

    Out of the voices, I recognised Keith Silverstein as Chairman Rose.

    I admit i didnt have many expectations due to the lack of trailers and such but this was so wholesome
    Yeah even I thought John was Bede for a second there lmao, but na he's his own character. Plus Bede was at an orphanage
    Wooloo is so cute and Hop trying to give Wooloo a friendship bracelet was so so so adorable.
    Joe pointed out how Ash has a subtle cameo so that was nice
    I love how they did chairman Rose
    Corviknight was so wholesome
    I'm actually sad this is monthly instead of weekly coz im really invested in these. If they had to be monthly couldn't we get 20 minutes :/
    Regardless the lack of British accents doesn't bother me and I can't wait for more

    AuraChannelerChris "How did I know that would be your reaction?"

    It always warms my heart to see gorgeous animation and really fitting voice actors for animated Pokemon shorts. Now I can't stop thinking Rose is voiced by Keith Silverstein.

    The Corviknight doesn't like strangers, but it sure likes kids.

    Sense the dubious nature in Rose?
    Impossible. Bede wasn't terminally ill. And besides, the kid's boy is John and looks nothing like him.

    Huh. You don't say.
