  1. Just downloaded the entirety of the Pokémon: Indigo League arc in Japanese. About half of it was subbed, but the rest is untranslated. Might grab the Orange Island episodes too, but I'm reluctant on Johto, since that series is twice as long as Kanto and the plot was stretched pretty damn thin across.

      Just download the important episodes of Johto there's a list of every major episode makes the series surprisingly short.

      Indigo League is like the only one where the dub is the best tho

      Yeahhhh but I want to watch the anime in its (relatively) unaltered format. I wish a dual audio release of Indigo League was possible.

      The only time I've watch the series in it's native language was battle frontier, the first few episodes of Diamond and Pearl and XYZ(because seriously fuck the music). 

  2. Shadowlax, we've told you repeatedly to drop the shit and stop derailing the thread. Since you continue to talk back to us you can have a strike. This entire line of discussion is going to drop right now. And that applies to everyone.
  3. I only got to see first episode of this a while ago (courtesy of Nep's suggestion), but it was the shit. It really impresses me that not only did somebody have the idea to make this, but that the fight sequences are as well-animated and engaging as they are. Kept meaning to check out more episodes. Anime is saved: watch Thunderbolt Fantasy.
  4. I'll concede that from what I've read, Ash in XY seems overall more capable and mature than he was in Kanto, but even that doesn't matter when the writers are gonna be pulling a deus ex machina rug from under his feet regardless of any change to his character, so technically he still ain't any closer to achieving his goals, and won't ever be.
  5. What incentive do the writers have in letting Ash win a league? Why should they even care about the older fans in the first place when the anime is deliberately designed for an extremely young audience who will inevitably lose interest in the show two or three years down the line? Have you ever stopped to wonder why Ash's character and intelligence got reset in BW, or why there are almost no references to past seasons in XY? No amount of improved animation and decent writing is going to change the fact that the writers are uninterested in emotional resonance, sensible continuity, and lasting character development. The anime has been going on for as long as Pokémon has been a thing and Ash is no closer to achieving his goals than he was during Kanto; it's not written for us in mind any more than My Little Pony is written for 20-something-year-old neckbeards. You guys should have known better.
  6. The creators don't deserve an ounce of ire for betraying "fans" (i.e. viewers not considered part of the target audience) of XY. Y'all played yourselves for having unrealistic expectations of the outcome and for getting hopelessly, emotionally worked up over something that will never happen for any of your sakes.
  7. THIS is how you do classic Sonic physics in 3D. Really makes me wish that Sega could pull of something this cool in their own games; this video just has a really excellent sense of flow and momentum.

      This is exactly what I always imagined Sonic Adventure 3 to be like.

      I actually posted a status showing an entirely serious example of what you're talking about the other day, though it's not really as physics-based in the same way, it uses similar principles of utilising speed and momentum:

       

  8. The other day a video game called "Astro Boy: Edge of Time" was teased, with Suda51 being among the artist credits. And... it turns out to be a collectible card game. A digital collectible card game. Why do I even bother getting excited for things anymore? http://kotaku.com/astro-boy-edge-of-time-reimagines-classic-anime-charac-1785644688

    1. Gabe

      Gabe

      Ugh, seriously? A card game? Why did they try and do all that nonsense buildup for?

      Sounds like a complete waste of talent. -__-

      And lol it's a KS too? I wouldn't be surprised if it tanks. If it was an actual video game I bet it would had reached half of it's goal, let alone get funded...

      *Meant to say that it would had been funded twice over if it was an actual video game, and I would be surprised if the KS reached half of its goal, let alone get funded.

      Man, and I was really fucking stoked for a follow-up to Omega Factor. The teaser site showed Atom and various other Tezuka characters in silhouette, making it me think it was going to be a crossover adventure or RPG game, maybe something like the Tezuka version of Project X Zone. Instead, this is what we get. lmao.

      Now you know how Mega Man fans feel.

  9. Watched Mew and the Wave-Guiding Hero Lucario today. Good, but confusing as hell and I had to have my friend explain a lot of plot points to me. I think that's a problem a lot of Pokemon movies have, because Lord of the Unknown Tower also had that problem of a confusing narrative. Also she recommended I watch Episode N of the BW series so I'm probably going to do that sometime, since it's only 14 episodes.

      SenEDtor Missile

      Really? I thought Spell of the Unown was pretty straightforward all things considered.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      I didn't understand things like why the dad was taken away by the Unown, what the fuck the Unown were doing in the first place throughout the movie, why they suddenly went berserk toward the end, and why the girl fucking kidnapped Ash/Satoshi's mother rather than visit her own mother in the hospital (according to the Japanese script; apparently the English version says that her disappearance was caused by Unown as well).

    3. SenEDtor Missile

      SenEDtor Missile

      Maybe it's just me remembering the English Dub weirdly, but I got the impression the whole taking Spencer Hale away was just one of those "you saw things you weren't meant to see, so you get disappeared" sort of thing. As for kidnapping Ash's mom, I think it might just be because she was the first mother that Molly happened to see. Remember, she associated Entei with her father, so it's possible that she associated her own missing mother with Ash's mom since there didn't seem to be a Pokemon equivalent to her mother like Entei. As for why the Unown went berserk...eh, I got nothing. Professor Oak said something about them generating too much energy in the English dub or something.

    4. Sean

      Sean

      I actually don't doubt that perhaps the English dub (which I've never seen) clarifies some things which I took issue with in the Japanese version. As I mentioned, what happened to the girl's mom is different in both versions; she's whisked away by the Unown in the dub, just like the father was, but she's never brought up once in dialogue in the JP version, making the viewer assume that she's dead... and then the end credits reveal that she's alive and well, and the script for the JP version claims that she was hospitalized. That makes Molly a LOT less sympathetic in the Japanese version, because if she wanted to see her mother so bad she could have asked Entei to bring her to her lair or something. Even Takeshi Shudo, the scriptwriter, hated this addition to the credits because it kinda screws up the story he was trying to tell in the first place.

    5. SenEDtor Missile

      SenEDtor Missile

      Ah I see. I've only ever seen the English Dub so I wasn't aware of the defects in the original Japanese release.

    6. Sean

      Sean

      I actually prefer the dub's interpretation of her mother's fate, and it makes her kidnapping of Ash's mom a bit more understandable, as you explained it. But in the JP version it's a pretty gaping plothole.

  10. Doremi-Hazuki-and-Aiko-ojamajo-doremi-se

    These characters from Ojamajo Doremi are literally motherfucking Sonic, Knuckles and Tails and I have proof

    Sonic = Aiko
    Athletic, cocky, makes cool poses, can't swim

    Knuckles = Doremi
    A doof, gets no respect whatsoever, has to protect a source of overwhelming power, chuckles a lot

    Tails = Hazuki
    Too smart, is good at making things, scaredy cat, gets less focus as the series goes on

    Ojamajo Doremi is literally just a magical girl version of Sonic the Hedgehog

    1. Azoo

      I love that bit of shade at the end of hazuki's description lmfao

      'chuckles a lot'

      But... unlike Sonic, Knuckles doesn't chuckle D: (Just kidding.)

    4. Sean

      Sean

      He chuckle a lot in S3K. He lie

    5. Wing

      Wing

      Sonic references seem to show up a lot, in Pokemon for me normally though

      Mesprit Azelf Uxie = Sonic Mesprit Tails

      Fennekin and Chespin = Tails and Sonic

      Snivy = Snivley (Like really.. what even)

      Purugly = .. big the cat?

      Sonic Knuckles Tails*

    6. Haalyle

      Haalyle

      I was gonna ask who 'Mesprit' was.

  12. A friend of a friend I'm gonna be meeting up with sometime whenever is apparently bros with Kunitake Aoki, the creator of Knuckles. Fucking jelly as hell.

    1. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      Tell him to ask Mr. Aoki if Knuckles has five heads like an actual echidna!

    2. VEDJ-F

      VEDJ-F

      Am I missing something? Because that's not Knuckles' creator. 

    3. Sean

      Sean

      Whoop, you're right.

    4. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      VEDJ-F is correct.

      It's obviously Ken Penders.

  13. We already have a topic about it.

      wow and I thought @TCB being my dad was rough.

  15. I want to hunt down a copy of Mario Power Tennis someday because from what I've seen it has some of the funniest moments in the entire Mario series

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I totality agree

      Ironically I had to buy a new copy around the beginning of summer because it was lost somewhere and I really wanted to play it. That and Skies of Arcadia [Legends] made me broke for the entire summer. =3=

    2. VEDJ-F

      VEDJ-F

      Oh, you've seen the outtakes then?

      I've only played the one on the N64 everybody tells me the sequel is better

    4. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      You really should, i'd say power tennis is the best game in the series and all the other ones afterwards, while okay, still haven't really matched it.

    5. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      It's a great game that actually puts some interesting twists on tennis, has the best court variety in the series, and doesn't have a very bad roster by today's Mario spinoff standards. (Wiggler being the closest to a bad choice)
