    Review JN046: Battle and Catch! The Revival of Mewtwo

    It's not mine or anyone else's job to convince you "what the big deal is, anyway?" in regards to Mr. Ichimura. You either hear it or you don't. I personally think his performance in the original 1998 movie is one of the best (if not the best) vocal performances in the entire franchise, but not...

    Review JN046: Battle and Catch! The Revival of Mewtwo

    Because he's too big a star. Masachika Ichimura's not that well known to us Westerners because he doesn't have a bunch of anime voiceover work on his resume but he is an absolute TITAN in the world of Japanese theater.

    I think it's important to take a step back and think about what this episode actually is. Basically, it was designed to kick off the show's move to Friday nights. And that's it. That's why the episode started with a World of Pokémon segment, that's why they were so heavy-handed with the opening...

    Review JN046: Battle and Catch! The Revival of Mewtwo

    This episode feels like a case of the show's director deciding to use Mewtwo and bring back Masachika Ichimura and everything, but then when it came to actually sit down write the episode the poor writer assigned to the episode got cold feet and was too afraid to do anything. You don't want to...
