I'm hearing a lot of praise for the Best Wishes anime, so I might see how it is.
Did that episode where Team Rocket was to cast some kind of earthquake near Castellia City ever air? I know it was put on hold after the Japan earthquakes, but I don't know if it ever aired after that.
Well no. A lot of them have a set ending in mind because the creators want to tell a story, which has a pretty clear beginning, plot progression, and end. Like how BBC's Merlin was set up- 5 seasons, that's done. But what you're thinking of is more like Doctor Who- it's not going to properly end until a) it stops being a cash cow or b) it gets cancelled again because the storytelling's gone to ****.
Anime tends to only have no ending if it gets cancelled/scrapped/postponed before its originally scheduled end... unless it's non-sequential in which case it generally just doesn't matter, just like non-sequential material in Western TV culture too. If Pokémon does ever end, you know they'll go out of their way to make it a significant end.
And then it'll be rebooted like a year later so it wouldn't matter anyway.
No not really. Most anime goes for one season, and then if people like it enough maybe it'll go for another or two more. There's Naruto and Bleach and all that, but the vast majority of anime is 13-26 episodes, maybe 2-3 seasons, and done.
I'm not sure if people are aware, but all the interest in Episode N has led me to think it's worth saying: we actually do have a Pokémon Anime section here at PC, complete with an Episode Discussion forum and threads for nearly all the recent episodes. I mean, if you're looking into Episode N and want to talk about it, that's there. Just though I'd say something since apparently nobody knows about it.
For what reason? I mean like... it's fine that you don't, but what makes you not want to go there and talk about it?
I guess just because I never had an interest in discussing it with people. Kind of like how I'm following the X&Y news but not posting in the forum; I'm not in a place where I want to have discussion. Part of it is also that all the anime people on here know way more than me and have watched way more and remember the shows they watched better so I'm just like x_x
I like discussing things like BW! I joined here for BW discussion, just some things I don't want to discuss. Either I don't feel confident enough in my ability to keep up with the discussion or I just...don't want to discuss that particular thing. XD
