Default Pokemon TV Show's 10th Anniversary!

Pokemon TV Show's 10th Anniversary!
-03/31/07-


Pokemon celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, but this year on April marks the 10th anniversary of the TV show. Here's a report by the Anime News Network:

Quote:
Anime News Network: 10th Anniversary of Pokemon in Japan
In April, 1997, Pokemon premiered in Japan. Next month marks the 10 year anniversary since its broadcast premiere, and Rica Matsumoto has been performing the role of Satoshi the entire time.

Speaking to Yomiuri Shinbun, she said, "It's been 10 years, hasn't it? But, it doesn't feel it's been that long. It's like Satoshi and I are doing this together. From the beginning, I wanted to perform, and I knew I wanted to do work that let others have fun."

Beginning in her late teens, and under the guidance of her father, the chairman of a stage troupe, she began working in theatrical productions. As she continued to work in stage productions, she became ill with tuberculosis. It took a long time to recover, and in that time, friends and colleagues suggested other ways she could perform, such as voice acting. She auditioned for a 1988 TV series called Osomatsu-kun, and thus started her voice acting career. In the late 90s, she saw an audition for the role of Satoshi, which was only described as "A young boy's voice, that is also a singer."

"Satoshi is always coming up with funny things to say, such as 'Pajama wa jama' (Pajamas are a menace!), as well as lots of gags. It's what attracted me to the type of character."

Another great example on how badly 4kids murdered the series.
*Goes to watch the fansubbed version.*

I felt 4Kids did an great job on the series. For a time, the PUSA/TAJ dub was horrid, but I have since gotten used to it.

If you really wanna complain about a series 4Kids butchered (in the "Other Anime" threads), see One Piece.
