This is where people who are approved to write episode guides will be able to call dibs on which episodes they want to write about, discuss the guides they're writing up, and anything else in relation to that stuff. If you want to try to get approved to write a guide up, this is where you're gonna do it, too.
Currently, approved writers are: Die Lobsterguy LUNI_TUNZ Swampert
Currently, episodes we need to write up are: Seeking Shelter from the Storm! An Appetite for Battle! A Jolting Switcheroo! A Rush of Ninja Wisdom Awakening the Sleeping Giant A Conspiracy to Conquer! Breaking Titles at the Chateau!
Apparently, LUNI_TUNZ has written guides for "The Bamboozling Forest!", "To Catch a Pokémon Smuggler!", and "Kindergarten Chaos!"
I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting some dudes from the old forum who said they were up for writing some guides so lemme know if you are, we could use at least like, one more dude.
Thanks. I should warn you though; you have to put up with some quirks of mine, which are as follows:
Clemont is Dexter who shrunk his sister down to size in order to have complete control of her and escaped to the Pokemon world and altered his and his sister's name in order to lay low, and a nerd. Dedenne is fucking useless. Froakie is the emotional frog and the badass derpy ninja with the many moods. Fletchling is so birdy bird that its fukken' eye is another bird and should never, ever evolve, for it will lose 2/3 of its birdiness. Malamar IS NOT creepy. Serena is a horny bimbo, and I will be proving that whenever I can. Alexa has ONE and ONLY ONE boob. She is commonly referred to as "uniboob", and in some rare cases, "Alsexa". The chick with the Mega Absol is mai waifu. I praise Swampert whenever and wherever I see it for apparently no reason. Mr.Mime is still a piece of shit and I want no argument about that. Dodgemaster Tim is a hated traitor who betrayed his trusty Dodgers. Do not take seriously all of the above.

All right, the next one is mine. LUNI_TUNZ, you have done a great job providing episode guides so far, so you may take a rest for the time being. One thing I should note about your guides is your excellent dodgy screenshot caps.
The guide will be up in about a week or so. It will be based on the dub version of the episode, so I have to wait for it to air first.
Also, if Die Lobsterguy gives up on the ninja episode guide for whatever reason, I can take care of it.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Sorry, it's just that after SM021 and M21, I know Mima's gonna be three for three when it comes to terribly mishandling emotional moments.

Donkarasu: But at least you're fine with episode 79, because you've never said anything about it.
Feb 9, 2019 19:02:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That was a lucky case of not bad but the dub did better.
Feb 9, 2019 19:09:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Masafumi Mima said he got goosebumps when selecting the music for a certain episode and even the voice actors were brought to tears, I'm certain it was indeed episode 108 that he was talking about: twitter.com/Sunma47/status/1073896011758587909
Feb 9, 2019 19:12:11 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That's fine and good for them. Mima's just unfortunately given me lots of reasons not to trust his music placement skills (actually, lack thereof).
Feb 9, 2019 22:39:49 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Looks like I'm right not to have believed him when he promised I'd cry at the onscreen events. But I can give him a bit of credit: it turned out better than SM021 and M21 did, so that's a relief.
Feb 10, 2019 10:26:25 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: It ended up with the same results SM079JP did: a "well, okay, that happened. Can't wait for the dub to improve it" kind of feeling.
Feb 10, 2019 10:27:06 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: BTW, I watched it in the first place just because of how cocky Mima was about it.

Donkarasu: I'm just going to say it now: I will not be happy when TPCI fills the silent moments with music. Silence is needed especially in tear-jerking episodes as it helps set the mood for a depressing atmosphere (it's hard to describe, so I tried my best).
Feb 11, 2019 5:46:51 GMT -4
Donkarasu: It's more Reina Ueda's voice acting as Mao (I can't believe anyone who thinks she wasn't amazing) and the dialogue and less so the background music used which makes those scenes so heart breaking and caused me and others to cry or tear up.
Feb 12, 2019 10:04:15 GMT -4
Donkarasu: While I said I wasn't going to talk about the whole controversy around Vic Mignogna, I do want to say one thing about it and that's, it kind puts me off anything to do with Funimation, especially due to other voice actors being involved in this.
Feb 17, 2019 8:44:25 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: That is my biggest grief behind it. They honestly shouldn't of said anything at all, rather than outright lashing at fans that disagree with them.
Feb 17, 2019 19:44:19 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Regarding Sean Schemmel being the latest person to be a part of it, that causes me to say this: Even if you're not a fan of Masako Nozawa's Goku voice, at least she's a kind woman who respects fans and has never caused any sort of controversy.
Feb 18, 2019 13:03:11 GMT -4
Donkarasu: And for the record, this is not the only time Schemmel did/said something which caused some outrage.
Feb 18, 2019 13:04:46 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Yeah, I'm aware. His past sins have come to light and while I was able to tolerate a lot of it, his latest episode was were the line in the sand has been crossed. Cancelled Funimation account as well.
Feb 18, 2019 23:00:57 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: If he's gonna be an arrogant butt that insults the hands that feed him, then he'll have to accept the consequences of it and hopefully that'll stick. Still yeah. I was never annoyed with Nozawa's Goku voice and she is really nice.
Feb 18, 2019 23:03:51 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I mean, Goku's supposed to sound like a disrespectful county hic (remember his inspiration from Journey of the West which the Monkey King routinely pissed off the gods)
Feb 18, 2019 23:05:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: and I think most complaints stem from just different tastes in vocals from us overseas. I honestly wonder why people make a really big deal out of it. Not everyone is Norio Wakamoto
