    Wow, this episode is awesome! Yay, finally at Dragonspiral Tower's; White Ruins!

    So there's a lot of talking going on about Reshiram, the Light Stone and the legend of the White Hero.. I thought the Light Stone looks really cool and Cedric Juniper's jokes were kind of funny. N arrives, I'm not sure why he's so upset. :/

    Oh, I really like the scenes with Ash and N like; Ash chasing N, after he took the Light Stone and N letting go of the Light Stone to try to save Ash from falling down the hole!! Also, Looker using Angie against Team Plasma after surrounding the rest of the group. XD

    Ooh, Ash and N team up again! Man, this episode is awesome and its a nice set up for the next episode too!

    Episode N feels looong, not long in a bad way but long in a good way. In a way it feels as though we've gotten some nicely knit insight on N's character, what he stands for, his past, and other prominent characters. The first part of a three-part climax and ending to Episode N, without a doubt, I enjoyed the ride but all villain arcs. gotta end sooner or later. As expected all hell pretty much broke loose in a matter of minutes of finding the Light Stone, that's not all what made this episode entertaining. Gotta love Araragi-Hakase and his natural sense of zany behavior, I don't think I've ever found a professor to actually be amusing to watch up until now. He's a screwball all around and energetic. Handsome acting like a cop should and pulling off some major acrobatic-like movements like that was great. My biggest annoyance with this episode was how Iris and Dento's Pokemon pretty much got instagibbed by the frenzied Golugh and thus they were rendered helpless.

    Akuroma will never cease to be an awesome character in my eyes. He's pretty much a mad scientist, he's not a person out to do malicious things but very morally gray. He does what he has to for his work that's that. At the same time there's just something entertaining about his behavior and facial expressions that we need more in this show. It's good to see there's more to his character than the typical "bad guy does bad things!" scenario we've gotten from past villains like J who was just out for money and generic villain-ry. The main event of this episode was, naturally, N and Satoshi clashing in their opinions. I'll enjoy that conversation more when I can fully understand what they mean but from what I did know it was an entertaining exchange. Just gotta love how N and Satoshi are just using the Light Stone - Reshiram itself - as a light source while they're trapped. It had some nice set-up for the inevitable and they really hit the ground running. Next episode looks like it's gonna be even better.

    Haven't mentioned this yet but the Angelina and Brad Pitt reference was nice too. :P

    Hmm... So I kind of find it a little bit interesting but like does anyone know what the legend of the White Hero is about and what Professor Cedric Juniper was saying about it??

    Episode N has gotten very good.

    I had google translated subtitles but I seemed to catch everything just fine.

    I'm hoping Team Rocket get something done, they haven't really suffered any losses yet but they haven't won anything either. They're just sort of annoying Plasma a lot lol.

    they are and i guess it's good and it changes things up a bit not having them annoynig ash and co. i think they could have done more with team rocket, especially their new pokemon, but still it's good.

    Always watching. Always waiting. Never truly at peace in a realm of its own.

    Why is is that the N arc feels like DP yet prior to that BW felt so out of place? During the part where N is talking to Ash and showed the picture of all those people with Pokemon I could not help but feel those character designs were really awesome and would of made great characters in the anime itself. Plus the last part was amazing with the ending scene needing to be made into a poster so badly!

    I like the N arc episodes so far, this episode was great too. I liked the scenes with Ash and N, it's cool when Looker threatened Angie with a pipe. I'm looking forward to see the next dub episode.

    Her name's Angie in the original. In the dub, I think it's Aldith.

    Aw they removed Looker's theme during the pipe scene. Other then that, great episode. I never watched the subbed version of this so unlike the other episode of the N arc, this one was actually new to me.

    Did anyone notice Colress' voice getting extremely nerdy when he said something along the lines of "Well, they better get here quickly" in response to Looker saying has back up coming? Usually, he sounds like a Prince Charming type and then all of a sudden his voice goes into nerd mode. Did anyone else notice that?

    I couldn't manage to see the last ten minutes of the episode, but I think I can safely say that Cedric is one of the only good things the anime has had in a while.

    There was something very creepy about the Golurk crawling around on the ground. Kinda creeped me out for some reason. First time the anime freaked me out since Dawn vs Ursula.

    This was a very good episode that left on a all intense cliffhanger. I am psyched to see what happens next.

    Good episode. I like how Ash think of friends, especially when he wants to befriend Reshiram. Looking forward to next episode!

    The plot thickens and is just waiting to explode. The confrontation between Ash and N shows just how they themselves have become friends. N was willing to give up Light Stone which he said he regarded beyond everything else and then they had a heartfelt conversation about People and Pokémon and how Ash considers them all friends. I really think N is beginning to understand.

    Can't wait till next week, can't it be tomorrow? On to the next one!

    I did not want this episode to end, just when things were starting to get good.

    N and Ash moments were well done, and it seems to bring them closer to an understanding about the Pokemon world. I felt bad for N when he admitted that people such as Anthea and Concordia don't have the knowledge of what it's like in the outer world. Especially when it came towards their hasty behavior to the gang. I'm glad Ash and N had a moment to talk about all that.

    Team Plasma was as wicked as ever, and Colress so so mad scientist I love it.

    Prof. Juniper Sr. is just as quirky with the humor he brings to the table. Always having us hang in there, to what he has to stay completely. xD

    I knew there was something sketchy about that "assistant" from the beginning. Knew it had to be Looker! That man does not disappoint.

    Can't wait for more!

    I knew it was Looker as soon as they said N's name for the first time and it flashed his eyes. The episode was really nicely done. The mythology of Unova has to be some of, if not the best pokémon mythology, so these episodes are awesome. Ash and N getting to talk was great, and Looker taking control was awesome, though I was sure Team Plasma wouldn't go down that easily! I can't wait for the next episode.

    seriously does anyone still think Mr. Juniper is funny with his gimmick, it was ok the first two times he did it but now it's just tiured and grating, I doubt if even the kiddies are laughing at this point. Standard setup episode works ok on it's own but would probably be better when combined with the last two episode of the N arc.

    Great episode. I was hoping N would turn out to be evil though.
