    I actually enjoyed this episode. N makes the anime mildly interesting and the battle with Team Rocket wasn't boring, as they were before.

    But that's not the issue. He says "To unite the people within our nation".

    Not really, given that these references were in the original script, and the dub just translated these lines straight. Doesn't mean the dubbers even have to know the wording is supposed to be a reference in the first place?

    Wait, they didn't refer to it as such in the dub?

    They did. Cilan identified it when using a map. Ash even annoyingly repeated it, as ever, in a bewildered tone.

    That is not a reference to the Japanese name.

    They say "best wishes" in the Japanese version all the time. This is just them keeping the line.

    If I had a nickel for every time, they did that same exact thing.

    Yeah but at least it was fitting, I'm a little surprised by that actually. XD It sounds just like N's voice from that BW2 promo trailer at times or is it?
     
  10. Same here. I'll even say it was an excellent voice for N. It's a different VA. Tom Wayland played N in the trailer, while Nicholas DiMichele plays N in the anime (some things are similar, but some are really different in a good way).

    TRio sucked in this episode in the dub, though. They're returning to their DP selves. XD.

    In terms of his voice, I liked it a lot.

    It showed a sense of wonder...I like that.

    Though he did sound a bit bored whenever he didn't have lines he was supposed to get fired up at.

    /alsdjalsdajksd. why am I being picky? The voice sounds so nice...QQ

    The episode was really good. I'm more focused on the opening in this episode, though. I really thought we were going to be stuck with the same one for Episode N and Da! I'm glad I was wrong! I'm so glad they changed the opening to clips of the Episode N opening! c:

    The dub perfected N's voice in my opinion, i think it suits him perfectly.
    On the topic of the TRio, can't they be funny without having to rhyme? If i wanted to hear rhymes in every episode i would go read a book of nursery rhymes or Dr Suess lol.

    This was a pretty great episode. N was definitely one of the coolest characters I've ever seen in the entire pokemon series.

    N's anime voice sounds much better than the BW2 trailer. It's closer to what I imagined for him.

    I am so glad they decided to change the intro! Keep up the good work, dubbers!

    N was already my favorite character in the franchise, but in one episode he already has a better presence than Ash&co have been in a while and is genuinely interesting.

    Nice introduction for N, VA seems to be matching the Japanese VA well, also movie tie-in was handled nicely, only downside to this episode is TR.

    Can't complain about the VA they went with for N

    They really nailed N's dub voice alright. It sounds very fitting. I was kinda shocked at first, though.

    So they did, my mistake. Sorry for the confusion Dephender.

    I don't like N in the games but I enjoyed him in this episode. I'd like to see if N is right that Zekrom will change Ash's future.
