• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

Both are pretty good. They go hand in hand. You need to watch episode 1 of future, then side, then ep 2 of future, then ep 2 of side, to appreciate what is going on both sides. Episode 2 of Despair side is everything wrong with anime today but The drama and tension is just so good, and having to wait every week for a Future side episode reminds me of the SDR2 days waiting for a new update.
Despair side picks up on its seriousness on episode 3, which shows how some things happened which were mentioned in SDR2. The animation for both sides is also superb. It makes the original DR anime's animation look archaic(it had its faults but they're even more apparent). Future Side is just great, the drama feels up to par with stuff in class trials, but now with really cool fighting.
