    Yeah. I'm born in the spring (Northern Hemisphere) and can't stand the summer too much.

    Well, I am born in the spring but it can get annoying because it starts getting hot.

    If you had to pick one season, which was your favourite season in the Pokémon anime, and why?

    Agreed. If anything, they should've replaced Ash with a younger voice actress if they wanted to make the voice consistent with his new design.

    What also irks me is seeing the Sun & Moon saga getting so many positive reviews from the internet fandom. It's suffering from copycat syndrome and extremely slow pacing because I have been seeing more pointless fillers and very little plot progression from the episodes so far, yet everyone seems to praise it.

    I do not praise copycats, because it is delivering the wrong message.

    When I saw the falling ratings for XY I clearly knew there was a problem. It's like the writers don't want to lose their young fans to a rival franchise and they wanted to go to drastic measures just to win them back.

    Also, the SM dub is even worse. I feel that because of Ash's new design looking younger, his VA should have been replaced or Sarah should have tried to make her Ash voice sound younger.

    That's a bit weird they'd do that in the first place. I get ratings were low and it was stagnant, but it feels like the writes are comeing off as ripping off another franchise.

    That's right. It's like the anime staff took the idea to do a Yo-Kai Watch all because Alola is not like the other regions.

    It doesn't feel like the Pokémon anime to me, when it has too much slapstick and taking on a school setting.

    Yeah Sarah is still voicing Ash. Disney XD is just the new broadcaster to American audiences.

    However, I absolutely hate Ash's design in Sun & Moon. He now looks and acts like a complete dork (all while somehow retaining his strength) and his outfit is the exact same as the male game protagonist except for colour changes. His outfits were always modelled off the game protagonists, but never wore the exact same outfit as that region's protagonist until now.

    Also, that new school setting and slapstick focus just screams Yo-Kai Watch copycat. Pokemon had been losing to Yo-Kai in the ratings so it's like the anime writers knew copying the format was the only way to win the target audience back.

    I've been really out of touch with the Pokémon anime: is Sarah Natochenny still the voice of Ash? I wasn't sure if the network switch would cause a change.

    I just haven't been on much because of depression and infrequent suicidal thoughts. I feel I have jealousy issues myself, looking inferior to everyone else whilst everyone else seems to succeed.

    I had terrible bouts of jealousy on PC, causing me to feel sour around staff members because I knew I lacked the right image. It hurt me so badly that I took a hiatus over if I'm even liked here anymore.

    I have a terrible sin of succumbing to greed and being power-hungry, and that's why my attitude took a terrible dive and caused my hiatus. Seriously, don't let your biggest sin consume you because it'll ruin you.

    I've had anxiety and depression and insomnia bouts lately myself, and I'm still unsure why it happens.

    It's improving. Recovering from a depression state coupled with a computer's broken cooler fan can take very long.
