      Haruka_Rules!
      Hey, I'm back from my 2 month hiatus. :)
      Sorry I have not been online in while. Things got busy on my end. xD
      How's everything going?

      Yeah, Squirtle did seem random.

      Anyways, if there's anything which Kanto beats later seasons in, it is in humor and plot uniqueness. You definitely don't see as much of the wackiness of Kanto in later seasons. Unfortunately, the battles are pretty lacking, and there wasn't that much development in the Ash-Gary rivalry or in TR as an organization.

      BTW, I just finished watching Steins;gate. Very good anime. Admittedly it takes a while for the plot to develop, but once it does it is one heck of a ride.

      Rewatched the first episode of Pokemon. It's interesting how Aah's first choice for his starter (Squirtle) was the one Gary picked. Also laughed at how we wouldn't find out who was Gary's starter until 5 years later in the Silver Conference.

      [ Agreed wholeheartedly on all of this really.
      Pretty much. SMH
      I just wanna know why the anime still existing as it is/still liking the anime is apparently a crime? I don't get it.:confused::XD2:


      Not his fault per say as PN2000 probably started the convo first and he just wanted to talk with fans.
      Speaking of which, did you hear Kazuki Takahashi, the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh! is coming to San Diego Comic Con this year?

      I know that, but 132 did as I mentioned him, too in the previous VM.
      I would as well as long as it doesn't mean aging him (hate timeskips now, so lame. :lol:),
      but this probably won't happen, but it depends on what tone Kunihiko Yuyama decides to put in for certain series.
      Master Quest was great and SAVED Johto, but that doesn't make up for the other 3 portions of Johto being... meh. :lol:

      We did talk about the hint in XY070, but yeah. :XD2:
      Of course not! He's gonna get the Gogoat he deserves. :spin:



      So I'm watching Zexal from start to finish... Yeah, Zexal II was better, but so far in Season 1... in my eyes, it actually is watchable.
      Here's what I think is "wrong with Zexal", Yuma's pretty decent in most episodes IMHO when put to the test, but overall the tone of the show feels like a Yu-Gi-Oh! rip off of Pokemon in regards to its tone and all. To me this isn't a bad thing, but compared to DM, GX, 5D's and ARC-V,
      it just doesn't fit the the usual tone of this franchise per say. Zexal II fixed that, though. But aside from a couple of meh fillers, I actually am enjoying Zexal I.

      As phanpycross said, Yuma and Astral's banter = FTW!

      *after Litterbot beats him in a Duel*
      "YUMA STINKS! YUMA STINKS! YUMA STINKS!" - Litterbot

      "SAY WHAT?!" - Yuma

      "RELAX. He isn't trying to insult you. He is simply stating a fact." - Astral

      "DAAH?! URRRGHHH!!!" - Yuma

      [Plot:
      "I'VE TRAVELED ACROSS THE DIMENSIONS?!", yells Yuzu.
      Yugo tells her yes, he's traveled the dimensions several times so there's no doubt about it,
      but in his case, being in the Synchro Dimension again is like coming home again.
      He understands how Zuzu feels though as he was just as freaked out as she is now, the first time he did this.

      During that first time was the night of Rin's kidnapping. Rin had told him she felt like she was being stalked.
      Yugo attempted to protect her but…

      ----------
      FLASHBACK:
      Late one night, Rin is seen running for her life from Yuri,
      but she comes to a dead end and he catches up with her.
      Yuri says it's time that she comes with him and renders her unconscious.

      Yugo arrives to the scene too late. Yuri is getting away,
      and Yugo gives him the chase on his runner, and Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, winds up transporting him to Heartland City.
      Yugo is seen driving around Heartland,
      wondering what in the world happened to it.
      There's destruction everywhere…

      Hoping she was somewhere in this city,
      Yugo kept on Searching for Rin, and found Yuri
      (he actually found Yuto), and says he's not getting away this time.
      Yuto asks if he's from the Academia as well?
      The organization that just attacked Heartland.

      "HUH?!?" says Yugo.
      Yuto asks him again, asking if he's a Duelist
      who uses the method of Fusion Summon.

      "WHO THE HECK IS FUSION?! MY NAME IS YUGO!!", shouts Yugo who says for getting his name wrong, and kidnapping Rin, he's gonna blast Yuri (Yuto) next week!
      The two begin a Duel.
      ----------
      In reality, Zuzu asked who Yugo Dueled. Yugo said that he had the same face as him, so that had to have been
      Rin's kidnapper. But Yuzu says he was wrong. That guy was YUTO! Yuto was trying to save Ruri from the Academia
      and he would never kidnap Rin.
      Zuzu asks if Rin is Yugo's girlfriend, but Yugo frantically makes several excuses to decline such a statement.

      [You're right, it doesn't. It means it's forced and contrived. :ohdear: @ TS fanboys... SMH
      Speaking of which, I HATE Kyron. He says he doesn't talk with anyone unless he can get something out of that said topic/discussion,
      (aka: get people to agree with him), but when people have DIFFERENT opinions than him, he freaks out as he hates being wrong,
      and he doesn't like BMGF's PAD, because other people's opinions on the anime are different with his which is:
      "The anime needs to change or be replaced. It doesn't deserve to exist the way it does now." - Kyrone

      ^ I would say this is a PN2000 alt, but it can't be. Kyron talks about other topics being video games,
      and doesn't view Sarah Natochenny and DuArt as his eternal mortal enemies. :XD2: ^


      Agreed. Even Bonnie and Serena cried when Goodra had to leave.

      See, I cling to that wonderful thing called optimism. She'll be back. Eventually. :XD2:


      Crud. Okay he and anyone else who aren't TS fanboys are an exception. :lol:
      At least Eric doesn't rant about being fired from 4Kids 24/7 as they rant on the anime.

      Yeah. I agree with you and 132's perspectives on improving the anime barring that Misty should return,
      and that companion replacement should end, but as long as Yuyama and the TPCJ execs stick to the formula,
      we're stuck with this, but personally I am actually okay with this as this is a VIDEO GAME promoting anime so it wasn't bound to be amazing from the start.
      That said, DP plot related, AG, BWS1/S2: Episode N, and Pokémon the Series: XY - Kalos Quest (Season 18/Year 2 of XY in JPN), are great.


      I like the song overall now. My problem is the artist.
      The OP grew on me after listening to it a few more times.

      BONUS POINTS if we get any Amour outta this. :lol:
      It also seems like M18 is a group effort film.
      In the manga, Bonnie is seen commanding a Hippopatos,
      and (NO, they did NOT trade) Clemont is seen ordering Ash's Frogadier to use Water Pulse.

      Thoughts on Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

      Pros:
      - A rival doesn't become irrelevant after one season in Shark.

      - Pretty good romance with Tori (Which is actually paid off for once O_O)

      - A story who doesn't ever drop in epicness (I would argue DM did this after the second tournament, and GX did this after the first season).

      - Yuma and Astral's banter is amazing.

      -Solid dub.

      Cons:

      - I don't like how much Yuma relies on Utopia in every battle.


      But yeah, amazing show, IMO.

      - Phanpycross on SPPF (after finishing Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal)
      ----------

      ^ See? Zexal isn't complete garbage after all. Disagree on the DM losing quality bit (unless the Virtual World arc counts), ^
      but that's just me.

      In other news, the next batch of the CoroCoro M18 manga leaks confirmed that force-controlled Ash is indeed a thing, so have a party. :lol:

      [Plot:
      In the present, Zuzu remembers Yuya telling her about another human that looks like him.
      She asks the guy if he's Yugo by any chance, which he confirms and is happy that someone FINALLY got his name right.
      Zuzu also asks him if he is the Pawn of Fusion like Yuya said as he was was told that from Yuto.

      (Note: In Japanese, Yugo's name sounds like the Japanese word for Fusion).

      "WHO'S FUSION?! MY NAME IS YUGO!! DON'T GET IT WRONG!!", shouts Yugo who realizes that Zuzu isn't Rin.
      She would never get his name wrong. Zuzu asks who Rin is and then remembers Yuri mentioning her when she encountered him.

      Yugo is surprised to find out that Zuzu ran into Rin's kidnapper, and asks where he is right now,
      but Zuzu doesn't know as he was teleported away by her bracelet.

      She explains that whenever she's with someone that looks like Yuya,
      the bracelet will glow and teleport them away when he shows up.

      Zuzu again asks for confirmation on where she is. Yugo replies once more that she's in The City, his hometown.
      Miami City is in a different dimension, being the Standard Dimension and saying that she has traveled here.

      [ That, XY Ash doesn't = OS Ash, so he doesn't make sense anymore.
      Nothing new though. Remember when he would post those brainless posts of OS scenes and go
      "THAT'S Ash, not whatever/this imposter he is now."? SMH

      Dave/David Willis. He voiced Noland in the 4Kids BF dub, and since Season 8, DuArt let him return to voice several other characters in the XY Series.


      But the fresh start is what made BWS1 awesome! :lol:

      Only chumps use those sites, IMO. :XD2:
      But I really don't get this guy anymore. Why do you enjoy/don't enjoy ranting about an anime and then rant about it and its characters 24/7?
      It doesn't make any sense. Heck, I even have respect for LORDE and DS fan now. They may hate Ash, but at least they *GASP!* talk about the characters, dub voices they LIKE, and OTHER SHOWS/ANIMES they LIKE without *GASP!* bashing OS-XY!

      AV054 - The Synchro Dimension: City

      Plot:
      Yugo checks his Duel Runner to see if anything was damaged, but it's fine.
      He warns Yuzu to be a little more careful next time as he went through a lot to build his Duel Runner.
      Yuzu just wants to know where she is. Yugo replies that she's in his hometown, The City.

      Much to his confusion, Yuzu suddenly begins to talk about the Miami City Championship Battle Royale round,
      thinking she is still participating in it, but then she remembers what happened…



      ----------
      FLASHBACK

      In the Standard Dimension, Yuzu was trying to outrun Yuri who was attempting to kidnap her.
      In her thoughts, she begged Yuya to help her, but her bracelet glowed,
      teleporting Yuri away as Yugo arrived thinking Yuzu was someone named Rin.

      But before she could tell him otherwise, her bracelet glowed again,
      this time teleporting both her and Yugo away as Yuya and Gong were nearing their location in search for her.

      But I understand how you feel, in all honesty, while I find them enjoyable,
      Pikachu shorts look like something TPCJ would make to air on Nick Jr. or Disney Junior.


      He just means:
      "Ash at the start of the series was a 10 year old boy, and I could buy that- he was a rookie who made silly mistakes, but he was like able- he had a lot of character, and was hilarious with his goofy personality.

      Now, he's just so bland with nothing that makes him memorable or likeable outside of battles that I just get bored watching him after a while...and he's STILL 10 years old after 17+ years? Yeah, right, as if it isn't hard enough to believe that, the dub changing all the actors including his yet making him sound much older just makes even less sense and the whole character makes zero sense now." - PN2000

      ^ If you ask me... this POST makes ZERO SENSE now. SMH ^

      I wouldn't say that. Dave Willis came back after all these years, didn't he? :sweatlol:
      They need someone as Ash again if something happens to her or if she quits/becomes to busy to work on the show and quits.
      It's either VT they bring back or Kayzie, but I'd doubt it's Kayzie, because the whole reason Sarah became Ash in the first place
      was because fans thought Kayzie was absolutely horrid as Ash.

      Each series is for a new generation of fans which is why the resets happen. But it's not like it'll be BW status in Gen VII, so I'm sticking around.
      And there's the fact that ditching the series isn't gonna fix anything. :XD2::lol:
      But Ash's Gen VII buds and Gen VII Pokémon are gonna get development so there's that.

      Yup, and save for 4chan, DA and Google+, and not a wall of text in sight. Isn't it beautiful? :lol:


      Agreed.

      To be fair, Ash almost won, but got screwed by a mid-battle evolution. CURSE YOU, RIOLU!!!

      He's not that bad. And for aging, even TopGengar999 is in the same stance I am on this: Ash should stay 10, NEVER be replaced, but SHOULD get actual development character wise, but if he doesn't oh well.
      Speaking of dumb things, did you hear that DS fan and Lorde became besties? SMH


      Yeah, even if Alame is lame, this is gonna be awesome! Also, as I said, AT is also writing Ash VS Shota in their debut rival battle and Ash VS Valerie. This guy rocks.

      I agree, but there's another side to this too, even if he somehow got Top 8 again, Ash is now one of the 8 most powerful ordinary trainers
      in the Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova region.
