Well, that's already been ruined for me, given what happened with the VA change in 2006. hdear:
And since I don't expect to see major changes with the voice acting, I've decided not to watch the Pokemon Black and White series. However, even though I did watch the D/P series, it's best for me to stop with Pokemon Black and White, knowing that there's no way I will enjoy it.
Same here. I'm worried about that as well... =(The original states that Ash is back down to 10 years old. Watch the dub have his same voice from the D/P dub. That's what I'm worried about. <:C
That's a pretty good idea.I'm sticking with the original for the anime.
No it shouldn't, because of 3 reasons.Sure BW might be "similar" to Kanto in some ways, but it is a continuation from the past series. So, shouldn't his voice build on from how it was in DP rather than magically go back to how it was at the start of the series?
No, because of 3 reasons.
1) Ash had the same voice for 8 years, and most dub fans grew up with his original voice.
2) With Black and White being similar to Kanto and Ash looking different than he did in D/P, with his new design, it would actually make more sense for them to go back to his original voice.
3) In Japan, Ash (Satoshi) has the same voice he's had since the beginning of the show. It seems Best Wishes is supposed to be nostalgic, because of the similarities to Kanto. Therefore, in order for dub fans to have the same viewing experience as Japan, we should have the original voice too.
Yes, this is a reboot of the entire show. How could it not be?Like I said, sure it might be similar but that doesn't change the fact the series is picking off from where it left in DP. This isn't like it's a reboot of the entire show and Ash is starting all over again.
Well, that's certainly true. You're right about that. ^^;Sorry for joining in with the off topic discussion, but whilst the original VA of Ash was around for 8 years, the newer voice actress has also been around for 5 years. Which is almost the same amount of time. It'd seem pretty cruel to make her lose her job to re-hire an old voice actor after 5 years. Kind of defeats the purpose of not firing anyone.
But, it's hard for me not to worry about the dub, when the Japanese writers already made the Best Wishes series similar to Kanto. Now I wish they hadn't done that. :-(I'm sure it will be fine, the new series, don't worry.

Ash is the only character left from the previous series, since Brock is gone. And Team Rocket is evil again like they were in early season one. And Ash turns his hat backwards again like he did back in Kanto.
That sounds like a reboot to me. I mean, there's too many similarities to Kanto, for Best Wishes/Black and White not to be a reboot.
