"The Ghost of Maiden's Peak"
October 31st, 2008

Dogasu @ 17:32 JST -- Busy week!  Doesn't help that the comparison I'm posting had a lot of cultural stuff that I had to look up and provide links to in order to make sense of the whole thing.

So here's the comparison for "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak," which is the first episode on the third disc of that first DVD boxset.  I hope you guys click on all those little links I put in the comparison and can learn a thing or two about Japanese holidays.  Educating yourself is always good :D

Why not go over and post your thoughts about these and any other comparisons on this thread over at Bulbagarden and complain about my elitist pro-Japanese rant?  It'll be fun!

I've kind of been slacking off on my studying for the JLPT Level 2, so I need to start focusing on that some more.  which means that I won't be able to update this site quite as much as I am now.  Since learning the language is kind of the entire reason I'm in Japan in the first place, this test has to take top priority.  Hopefully you guys will bear with me .

"Bye Bye Butterfree," from what I remember, didn't have too much done to it, so I'll try to have that comparison up early next week. 

"Beauty and The Beach" and "Tentacool & Tentacruel"
October 27th, 2008

Dogasu @ 00:12 JST -- Sorry about the long absence, guys.  I had some issues with uploading my files through my FTP program, but I've made what should be a permanent solution to the problem to make sure something like this won't happen again.  Hope it works out.

Even though my FTP programs weren't working, I was.  I was able to find a copy of "Beauty and The Beach" (silly 4Kids and their inconsistent capitalization practices), so I went ahead and did a full-on comparison of the episode.  I also went ahead and did "Tentacool & Tentacruel" since, y'know, there's been more than two whole weeks since my last update.

You can post your thoughts about these and any other comparisons on this thread over at Bulbagarden. 

I've also
corrected the translation of the ship diagram over on the "Pokémon Shipwreck" comparison, thanks to Tony.  I've also made an additional comment about Takeshi's Noah's Ark story later on in the same comparison.

Lastly, I've added a bunch of episode titles, both English and Japanese, to the List of Anime Episodes.

I'm already about halfway through with the revised "The Ghost of Maiden's Peak" comparison (I have all the screencaps taken for it and everything), so I should hopefully have that up within the next day or two.


"Beauty and The Beach"
October 16th, 2008

Dogasu @ 17:33 JST -- I was able to find a copy of "Beauty and The Beach" (silly 4Kids and their inconsistent capitalization practices), so I went ahead and did a full-on comparison of the episode.  It's much better than the last version, in my opinion, so be sure to check it out.  You can post your thoughts about this and any other comparison on this thread over at Bulbagarden. 

I've also
corrected the translation of the ship diagram over on the "Pokémon Shipwreck" comparison, thanks to Tony.  I've also made an additional comment about Takeshi's Noah's Ark story later on in the same comparison.

Lastly, I've added a bunch of episode titles, both English and Japanese, to the List of Anime Episodes.

I don't really know when I'll have "Tentacool & Tentacruel" up, so I won't bother putting up a date and will just say "soon."


"Island of the Giant Pokémon"
October 9th, 2008

Dogasu @ 07:33 JST -- Sorry about the long gap between updates, but a number of unexpected real world stuff + catching a cold + Mega Man 9 have all prevented me from getting things done.  Plus...this comparison I'm about to post just took a while anyway because of all the subtitle stuff.

So without further ado, here's "Island of the Giant Pokémon."

I don't have a copy of the English version of the next episode since it was never released on DVD, so I'll probably just dust off the existing comparison, clean it up a bit, and then move on.  Hopefully, that won't take too long.  After that, I'll do "Tentacool & Tentacruel."

There are a few other little updates I wanted to make, but those are going to have to wait until after I get off from work.

"Pokémon Shipwreck"
September 30th, 2008

Dogasu @ 07:30 JST -- So I've got a new comparison up, everyone:  "Pokémon Shipwreck."  Unlike the others I've been doing, this one is actually brand new for this site, so it should be more exciting than the others have been.

It also looks like Youtube slash Shogakukan's taken down my videos off YouTube, so I've uploaded them onto another site instead.  It's kind of annoying, but I really can't say I'm surprised at all.  While I personally don't see the harm in posting clips that are barely under a minute in length, I also recognize that Shogakukan has every legal right to keep videos of the series that they own off the Internet. 

I have no idea when I'll have the next comparison up, but I'm betting it'll be sometime in October.  Just a hunch.
