Dogasu's Backpack | Episode Comparisons | Kanto Region

4Kids kicked off their second season of Pokémon with "Princess vs. Princess," an episode that "required" them to get rid of a ton of Japanese text.

The original Japanese version is on the left, while the edited dub version is on the right.  Click on each image to view a larger version.  In many of the signs below, the text in the original version is cut off and / or obscured by other characters and so my translations of these signs are based on an educated guess of what the full text is supposed to be.

Ohina-sama (おひなさま)

East (東) gets changed to the Roman Numeral I while West (西) gets changed to Roman Numeral II.  What's odd about this is that the dialogue in the English version still refers to the divisions as "east" and "west," contradicting this paint edit.

Kasumi (カスミ) gets changed to a picture of Misty from later in the episode.  This actually makes the dub a little more consistent than the Japanese version.

Musashi (ムサシ), like Kasumi before her, gets changed to a picture of Jessie from later in the episode.  The little bit of text you can see in the purple square off to the right there gets erased as well.

Ohina-sama Queen (おひなさまクイーン) gets erased from the stage in the background.
