GordoBaggins’ Notes: Creepy title. Written by Steve Blum.
J.P. always wants food. Let’s get that straight.
In the original, Bokomon likes to refer to Neemon as “Bakamon.” (‘baka’ meaning dumb or idiot). In the dub, he doesn’t really say anything to that effect. Just random insults.
In both versions, Bakumon is a Child/Rookie level, and he still has a deep voice in either language. Weird.
J.P.: Apple, you’re my best friend!
You’re delusional. D:
Bokomon: Paws off, baggy!
Koji’s flashback to the fight with Grumblemon is longer in the dub. The characters also talk when they didn’t in the original.
J.P.: Whoa, tree TV! I hope it isn’t all travel channels! I wonder if we can get music videos?
What kind of music would YOU listen to?
J.P.: I love cherries! You know, come to think of it, I love pretty much every kind of food!
J.P. (holding out the napkins): TADA! My clothesline!
Liar, your closet consists of nothing but janitor clothes.
J.P.’s stage name in the dub is “Howie Doodat.” GET IT?!
Bakumon’s “Nightmare Syndrome” is kept.
In the original, Junpei lost at jan-ken-po (rock-paper-scissors), but in the dub they drew straws. Where did they get straws from? J.P. probably made them magically appear (and yet he still lost O.O).
J.P. talks about having gas. Eww.
~10 seconds: Tomoki swinging the twig at the others.
Kumamon says his attack name when Chakkumon doesn’t in the original. Just the first time, though, Chakkumon does it the rest of the time, too.
Neemon: Maybe you could use the book!
Bokomon: Maybe on your head!
In the original, Kouji’s evolution scene was cut down a bit. In the dub, they used the whole thing. Same with Takuya, but to a lesser degree. Why can’t they just leave this kind of stuff alone? >.<
Bakumon’s name is kept. Sometimes it’s called Tapirmon by Bandai, so that’s why I think it’s significant. Either way, I don’t care if you think it’s significant or not. SO TAKE THAT. =D
Bakumon’s “Holy Ring” is called a “Power Ring.” Nothing holy in English-speaking countries, as we all know.
Agunimon: Come back here, you flying porkpie!
Did he say porkpie or porcupine? 😛
Agunimon doesn’t name his attack this time! Yay, so now two punches aren’t gonna be called “Pyro Tornado” O.o But in the dub, he punches 4 times instead of 2.
Agunimon ALWAYS sounds like he’s crying or in pain. <.<
Does everybody have a stupid-sounding snore in the Dub Digital World? i.e. Neemon?
Koji calls his Digivice a “she” when he hasn’t even met “her” yet. xD
Total episode retained: 100%.
