I give fair warning, incredibly biased fanboy review of this beautiful movie coming right up. <3....
Okay first of all, I have never experienced a movie that I've preferred the english version until now. I finally managed to download the japanese version and watch it. WOW. Its not really the voices, the people did fine with their roles. its everything else. Well I guess one voice, manaphy's sounds the same, but much lighter here, I preferred it louder. But that's just a small nitpick, mostly because i can't hear any of the japanese people say their lines without hearing the english version's lines echo in the backround. This goes for EVERY CHARACTER. God I've watched this movie too much in english...
other nitpicks...the guy singing "Dudodododo" completely ruined the scene of jackie's reason for becoming a ranger for me. (well not completely, I still felt sad...but I liked the english instrumental of together we make a promise alot more. <3...)
OH OH. THE VITAMIN JOKE. OH GOD LOVED THAT SO MUCH IN ENGLISH.
YES I know it was a japanese pun that I never got...but I still loved vitamins so much more.
"Man you're strong phantom...you take vitamins ._...?" XDD
Okay, enough complaining. I LOVE THIS MOVIE. So freaken much. this is like my pokemon the first movie for a lot of noglistic fans. I will defend it come hell or high water. XD
I still love the sound track in both versions, I loved manaphy and May together. they were so cute. <3...
Jackie's still my favorite pokemon anime character ever. ever. xD I admired rangers when I was a kid (kinda like ash did), and i loved playing the games as one. then we get a very badass one over here, one that has very witty/cute lines that make you think "He's so god forsaken awesome. ". Especially at the beginning, where he escapes.
Phantom was pretty cool, I always loved his english voice, and his little saying "There are two types of men on the is planet" was kinda funny.
oh yes...BODY SWAPPING. Yes it was short, but it was still so funny to see. I wanted May to be in it too (I really thought manaphy was aiming for may but hit ash instead cause he was in front. but whatev's.) XD
THis is like my classic movie...don't you dare diss it. /killed.
To forgive and forget...Such an interesting thing. :P
