*sigh* Stolen food again. Since I like this Pokemon and I'll have it on my team, I'm looking forward to this episode Da Boss Darmanitan.

Overall, this was a pretty good episode. Darmanitan looked very interesting in Zen mode.

And, Iris didn't call Ash a kid in this episode! I don't believe it. I didn't think it was possible, but it's happened! I hope "what a kid" is kept to a minimum (a really LOW minimum).

Pretty good episode, Ash really needs to see a doctor though if he's that hungry all the time and he'll definitely get indigestion/heart burn from eating that fast. Darumaka was pretty cute, they seem to have made Pikachu cuter this series too. TR are getting really awesome, so nice to see them actually being evil rather than just messing around chasing Pikachu, it's even been a good few episodes since Ash and TR have even come across each other.
I'd still like to see Iris and Axew actually do something useful, at the moment she doesn't seem to serve a real purpose yet though I suppose she hasn't even said why she is traveling with Ash yet...

- ...Their food gets stolen all the time >_>
- Darumaka is cute, though
- Hehe, it was funny when Iris tried to knock over Darumaka...
- Thought Ash was going to say "no need to worry" when he said "no need to thank me"
- Heh, I thought Cilan and Iris were just going to watch Ash save the tower by himself
- ...Can't Darmanitsan psychic Ash to the bell...? -_-

I swear I'm starting to hear dub music :S

Darmanitan reminds me of donkey kong.
Darummaka's cry sounds weird.

Once again, an episode review from the archives...

Review of BW008, Saving Darmanitan From The Bell!

Comments:

-The title pun sounds really forced now...I kind of liked the original Japanese title better...

-I keep on wanting to say Darumanitan or something...that U just seems like it needs to be there in the pronunciation, which is mainly the fault of the Japanese name, Hihidaruma.

-OMG they actually said dumplings in the dub! Hooray!

-ROFL random Darumakka just walks by! I love its voice! DARUMACA.

-LOL Darumakka Flamethrowered Iris! As much as I love her, it serves her right for all the past "What a kid!" comments!

-Why would Pikachu eat food and forget about it that quickly, Iris...?

-It could have been knocked over! Just needs a good, brute kick in the side to wake up!

-OMG Kibago/Axew, don't just pick fights over food like that!

-Oh gosh these 2 Darumakka are going to be annoying pyro pests! LOL at the 2nd ninja Darumakka.

-Two Flamethrowers knocked out a WATER Pokemon? Something's up.

-LOL I love it when Audino respond to Nurse Joy's command. "Audino! [insert command here] "I dunno."

-Why can't Cappuccinos IRL be served rocket-fast?!

-It took a whole day for Oshawott to heal...?

-ROFL at Pikachu's face when Ash's stomach grumbles. XD

-When Nurse Joy opens the closet only to reveal a startled pair of NINJA DARUMAKKA who have food bags slung across themselves may have been the episode's funniest scene. :cer_laugh: That shot just begs to be the picture for a Motivational Poster someday...

-Team Rocket used to be funny. Now they're just BA...
LOL at the cappuccino codephrase.

-Pikachu's Thunderbolt vs. Darumakka's Flamethrower looked amazing, especially with Oshawott's attempt to douse the fire.

-Darumakka can Rest that quickly?! That was so not two turns!

-AAAAURRGH ZEN MODE DARMANITAN.

-Loved the teamwork elemental efforts that went into rehooking the bell.

-So, basically, if someone had come along to check the interior of the Clock Tower, this whole incident could've been averted...?

4/5 for the episode. Heh-heh...those Darumakka...

LOL...I would love to see someone's reaction to that at Starbucks or something.

Glad I wasn't the only one who anticipated Dawn's lovely catchphrase. XD

I know, right? After so many seasons of having it churned down our throats through our ears, we instinctively want to hear dub music. It's weird. I'm all for retaining the original compositions, although it's going to take some time to adjust to it properly... Based on the music, it feels like I'm watching a Pokemon sub at times... XD
