Dogasu's Backpack | Old Updates Archive | January 2023

Dogasu's Backpack's 23rd Anniversary
January 31st, 2023

Dogasu @ 23:28 JST -- Twenty-three years ago today -- January 31st, 2000 -- I started a little Geocities website that would eventually become Dogasu's Backpack. I've been doing yearly round-ups for most of that time and so today I've done the same thing with my "review" of 2022!

Twenty-Third Anniversary

Thank you everyone for continuing to visit this creaky old website over the years. I can't wait to show you all what I have in store for 2023!

Pokémon Radio Show! The Rocket-Dan's Secret Empire -- Vol. 7
January 28th, 2023

Dogasu @ 09:47 JST -- Mamoru Miyano returned to voice Dent in last night's episode of Pocket Monsters Mezase Pokémon Master and so now seems like the perfect time to bring you the write-up for the Mamoru Miyano episode of Pokémon Radio Show! The Rocket-Dan's Secret Empire!

Pokémon Radio Show! The Rocket-Dan's Secret Empire Episode 07

Episode 7 features a chaotic interview with Mr. Miyano where "Musashi" spends the majority of the time mercilessly teasing her younger co-worker as he talks about doing PR work, what it's like to voice one of Satoshi's traveling companions, and his fondness for a certain Kanto starter. He also reveals, for the first time ever, that he was the voice behind a few different Pokémon in the show...? The episode also features a dramatic space opera, a Double-Q segment, and a surprise interview with Shoko Nakagawa!

As always, my write-up also features a ton of footnotes and notes about CD exclusive content related to the episode.

Look Back - Predictions 2022
January 1st, 2023

Dogasu @ 21:43 JST -- Every year I make an attempt to predict what will happen in the World of Pokémon and then post those predictions on my website as a sort of fun little game. Part of that game is to then check back on those predictions a year later to see how many of my predictions came true. So let's take a look at the stuff I thought would happen in 2022 in my 2022 Predictions Check-In!

I'll be posting my predictions for 2023 when I do my website's anniversary write-up later this month
