    That snippet in the trailer has me feeling better. Also I'm glad I'm not the only one who was upset about her role in that episode and nervous about her being portrayed like that here. SM 38's lessened my worries but I know there's still a possibility it could happen.
    Is it bad this scene came to mind?

    Good news: Musashi isn't an antagonist. Thanks Sekine. Great news: Kojiro was poisoned at the end of the first half. Musashi was really worried throughout what we saw of it before we spent the rest of the episode with Hidoide. It reminded me of a similar moment in Love and the Origin of Youth. We don't see Kojiro or Musashi again until the next morning at the beach. Musashi nursed Kojiro back to health offscreen?

    Musashi worrying for Kojirou's life is obviously the stuff we're all dying over.
    To recap she:
    - got acutely worried when she realised he was really poisoned
    - was shown bent over his flaccid body in the cave in the dark (are you telling me she didn't stay up all night to nurse him?)
    - said OUT LOUD that looking after his health > capturing a rare/strong/evolved/shiny Pokemon.

    But ok what I can't get over is how many action/reaction shots they had with the two of them. The storyboard went overboard...

    Here are some favourites:
    The entire composition of this scene, like seriously, why is Musashi even there?:
    [​IMG]

    What was the need for such a closeup reaction shot of her face?!:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this one just because when did she ever sit on the sidelines and cheer him on so positively?:
    [​IMG]

    More tomorrow!

    I can't see her not staying up with him to take care of him. Actually I might write a fanfic about that after subs come out. And I enjoyed watching her cheer him on. It's her turn!

    Listen, I'm gonna need about 6,000 fanfics about what was going on offscreen that night.
    And, actually, my favorite reaction of hers was at the very end when she told Nyarth that it was okay to let Dohidoide go because Kojirou might not survive otherwise and then she looks over at him and... I don't know, it was just fond and I liked it.

    That is a very sweet scene. I unfortunately didn't get to see it until many minutes ago so I couldn't talk about it.

    I probably should have spoiler tagged that, shouldn't I? I guess I can go back and do so now.
    I'm always so happily surprised when I watch Pokemon subbed because I forget how much I enjoy the characterizations. It's like a completely different show from the English dub.
    (Unrelated note about this episode-- Lugarugan sleeping like a regular dog is adorable)

    I don't think you needed to spoiler tag that as it was an aftercredit scene and ii kanji's seen the episode too. Plus I'm very laid back about spoilers(besides I was already told of the scene:)).

    Apologies for incoming picspam... It all got so much more cap-able with subs!! :p

    And Musashi is what exactly? :ROFLMAO:

    From the moment he first mentions releasing Hidoide...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    (Although is it just me that thinks the expression change makes her look like she feels totally guilty for being a spendthrift?)
    [​IMG]

    But after that she is pretty unimpressed with him more or less until he finally realises that Dohidoide means for him to keep Hidoide with him, after which she relaxes.

    That was how I was reading that scene.
    It seems like Hidoide sees her as a galpal.
    Is it bad I didn't know what a stud was until I looked it up after watching this scene?
    I ended up having a dream last night of the Yowashi scenario.:confused: Musashi saved him.:)
    AWWW!!! I squee every time I watch this scene.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Jessie and James someday considered getting married. I mean, look at all the tough times they go through, just to get Ash's Pikachu.

    Nice to meet you, too, TRNatalie.

    Basically, whenever Jessie and James have a romantic moment, you forget that they're the bad guys, and it just feels like there's chemistry between them.

    Yeah. It's how I feel whenever I watch them(although there's definitely a good side to them too)

    I agree. Like, when James offered Cacnea his bag of crackers. We never see Ash and friends do this. And, later on, James captures Cacnea in one of the most heartwarming ways. Yet, Ash and company think that Cacnea was stolen.

    Yes that was so sweet. It's hilarious in hindsight watching that episode with the most recent episode in mind because Ash was completely different. I got into Pokemon thanks to the third movie so it was weird entering the series, realizing they were bad guys after seeing them save a kid's life and care about a little girl. And then there's this moment

    Which episode is this?

    Also, sometimes, you can't help but feel mixed feelings for them when they are happy while blasting off.

    It's a scene from Pokemon 2000. They decide to sacrifice their lives to save the world and are quite content about it.
    After all, if there's a world after they die, they'll meet again there.
