From now on, I'm only coming back here when a truly special episode like "Memories in the Mist!" happens. That said...
I remember having this to say when this one aired in Japan: "[Masafumi] Mima has been rather cocky about his work on this episode a few times leading up to the airdate, so I decided to take his implicit challenge, expecting a disaster on the level of his work on SM021 and M21 (the latter of which also had S. Miyazaki accomplicing).
Even though I'm fully confident the dub will fix it like they did SM021 (but unfortunately left M21 musically demolished and meaningless), I'm glad to say this episode wasn't such a fuckup. True I didn't cry like Mima was so confident I would, but I'm also not upset. If anything, my reaction to this episode in its current state is 'eh, all right. Now time to wait for TPCi's turn.' And frankly, that's the highest honor the JP version can get from me, so I hope that's acceptable."
I still hold to that: the JP version of this episode is a nice experience. I never expected a JP episode to earn such praise from me.
The dub's version, though? Well, it's a masterpiece, easily the best job Mr. Goldfarb's done on anything that isn't M20. He put his piano skills to marvelous use here, especially for when Mallow saw her mom again. And it was great hearing Stoutland's theme return for when he himself did. All in all, it made for a TV episode dub score that'll be incredibly difficult to top.
Oh, and the performances from everyone were marvelous and emotional. Rebecca Soler did the best out of all of them, which does make sense since Mallow's meeting with her late mom is basically the focal point of the episode.
Of all of SM's defining emotional moments, this one's the best by far.
Doesn't look like anyone been in here in a while, well I saw the recent and I really enjoyed it to be honest here. When Ash gave little Kuki that nickname of Rory, Heatwave from the Flash instantly popped into my head lol.
I think I might do a guide for this one, since it has been a while for one.
ShiningStarlia: I absolutely have no idea how anyone draws the conclusion that it's bringing forth the Apocalypse. Or a Japanese cartoon show having characters use different forms of Japanese dialect and accents to fit their different cultures is the worst thing ever.

ShiningStarlia: Either way, it's over with, and tomorrow's episode is something more plot before the league episodes start up. Can focus on that instead of losing one's mind over a forgettable filler episode.

Donkarasu: Sorry, I need to say this; When you posted those other forum comments, Ryu, it's clear you were reading what you wanted to read and took me saying that you shouldn't act like your life was ruined by this episode as me saying you shouldn't like it at all.

Donkarasu: This is why I got so pissed off at you, because you purposely twisted what I had said. In fact, a majority of those comments you posted basically had the correct way to dislike this; calling it dumb or annoying, but without any of all the unnecessary rage.

Donkarasu: I listened to the full version of the remake for Type: Wild and I found Shōko Nakagawa did a great job.

Donkarasu: Also way before that (like last week) I heard the remake of Together With The Wind, it was good too.
Jun 25, 2019 12:42:09 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Excellent. I'll get to hearing it whenever I get the chance to.

ShiningStarlia: Goodness gracias that type wild remix was amazing! I love how so full of energy it is!
Jul 8, 2019 17:07:22 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Hah, I can't get over how good the Alolan remixed Type: Wild is. I remember when it played during Infernape vs Electivire; if this song got remixed, we're due for something amazingly good and fun. Can't wait!

Donkarasu: I forgot to post the magazine scan and translation for the episode that aired yesterday... Oh well.

Donkarasu: I had no idea this forum had a block button which hides posts that you can open to see.

ShiningStarlia: Huh really. Anyway, enjoyed the newest episode. Ash's ironic tobias moment done accidentally and Mallow & Lana's clash.

ShiningStarlia: Rowlet in that Decidueye costume is extremely adorable
Jul 28, 2019 17:04:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, THAT was probably the anime's biggest fake-out that I've ever seen and made me go "Wait, what?!" for a couple of minutes until everything was cleared up.
Aug 4, 2019 20:46:02 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I find it so poetically ironic that even its been weeks after that bait and switch fake-out with Rowlet falling asleep...I still see some circle jerking around a few other boards.

ShiningStarlia: For all the fire that 2016's Kalos League failure drew for Ash losing it down to the wire...never in my wildist imagination would I ever see parts of a community screaming so violently lividly that he should've lost instead.

ShiningStarlia: Whether or not the joke was in good taste is up for debate, though I find it quirky and humorous, I wouldn't think people would get this levels of upset.
Aug 24, 2019 19:28:20 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Saw the incoming upcoming anime episode clip and a certain old friend we've long missed makes their return! I'm so darn excited!

Donkarasu: I usually post full summaries for next week's Pokémon episodes on Monday, because that's when the previews show up on YouTube. But this time I decided to post it on the day it was revealed, seeing as that was the ONLY summary for the episode.
