    20 years ago this day, a special episode aired that marked something big at least for Rocket fans; the first truly Rocket centric episode, Kojiro's backstory, an introduction to his rather insane family and his VERY sadistic fiancee, and a scene that quickly became famous among Rocketshippers everywhere, the appropriately titled 'balloon scene'!

    And in these twenty years, Musashi and Kojiro and Nyasu have grown so much. :')

    To celebrate, I wrote this.

    Happy Ballooniversary!

    Sorry don't have anything new to share, but here's the original scene again for anyone who needs a refresher!

    That scene is so cute in Japanese! I've never seen that episode in its original format.

    Like all other Rocket-centric episodes, the original version is a must watch in this case. 4Kids was the dub of my childhood but nothing and no one can top the acting of Hayashibara and Miki in these kind of scenes.

    If you've followed the original for any length of time it is anyway obvious (the ad-libbing, their behaviour during the radio show, the way they are credited as their characters rather than themselves in CD releases), but from the horse's mouth:
    This is why the TRio and their relationships are so irresistible - at this point the seiyuus have a 20+ year long, loving friendship - it's all so real!! :love:

    Omg that was so nice Natalie!!! :love: All the little interactions with each of the Pokemon added so much texture to the conversation Musashi and Kojiro had outside. I loved that it wasn't a "big" moment, but just the two of them sharing a little of their souls with one another. I could totally imagine such a scene actually happening, really well written, thank you!!

    Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it.:) The conversation was difficult to write but I'm glad I was able to do it justice.

    Speaking of the balloon scene, it was very beautifully animated, right? Did you know we've been crediting the wrong person for it? Even though the animation director for that episode was Izumi Shimura, the one who animated the final scene was Masaaki Iwane! He stated it in one of his tweets. Sadly, can't link to it, because it was some time ago ^^;

    I don't know if they are supposed to be looking at the audience, but as far as I'm concerned they are totes just looking at one another... Iwane rocks.

    Anyway, looks like there are some exciting times ahead for the team! Do you guys think this will provide an opportunity for shipping or will it simply result in a barren landscape of impersonal interactions like the BW Rocket plot?

    I think we might get something like SM 25 and SM 73 where there's a small moment of shipping and a lot of good interactions within the group.

    Definitely the best scene of the episode!

    I just realized it was the first time they actually entered an onsen NAKED (well yeah, they have nothign under those towels) together. All the previous times I can think of were some kind of fantasies (which is still good, but...). And on top of it all, they were fucking touching, like skin to skin!? THE BEST THING!

    Rockets are getting really intimate, I'd say :D One of the best things about their relationship is that they feel no shame around each other, like it's all natural :3

    Back in the day, Pokemopolis.com would have had a field day with this whole episode...

    Okay but why do the Rocket Pokemon even need towels? Also, I am a terrible person for even noticing that Kojiro's towel doesn't quite wrap around all the way here. ;)
