Pokemon XY, whilst not being totally dissimilar from the seasons before it, i consider it much better.  Be awere that my opinion could be different than it could be due to the fact i watched the previous seasons in english dubbed done terribly, and im watching XY in eng subbed.  This may make my judgement a little innacurate.  If you think so, comment below and i'll be glad to hear your opinion. The story has not had enough episodes to develop yet, so i may fill this in on a later date, but it looks somewhat hopeful. The best thng about this anime is, as i must say, its new cinematography.  I think that its amazing, and that the pokemon themselves have realistic movements, and the different angles and perspectives used, especially in pokemon battles are superb.  This is a massive improvement to the anime, and i must say is really unique.  It captures angles well, and is perfect for showing the action.  It's actually got some of the best cinematography i've seen, as it is very active and does well in this anime.  Again, one of the best things about the anime. Easily 9.5/10 The sound is again good.  It's personally nothing too great, but it isn't bad either.  The pokemon sounds though are really nice, although they still are restricted to saying their names.  The voice acting is nothing special, and is not that great, and some of the characters play there roles too much.  Not all, just some.  I cannot really give examples, due to not having much of a developed opinion on the voices yet, since i don't nearly know enough about the main characters (character development hasn't really happened much due to so few episodes) to comment if the voices really suit them yet.  The sound effects though are quite good, and match the scene well.  Therefore 8 out of ten, altough maybe a too much, but 7.5 didn't seem right. The charatcers may not be great, but they are a massive improvement.  So far, the charatcer development has been done on Satoshi (Ash), and a little bit on the sister.  I personally have much more respect for Ash in this season, because it shows clearly his care for pokemon, and it's not too out of place since the pokemon do act somewhat intellegent, and can clearly understand what people say, so of course Ash would become legitimate friend with them, and care about them like he would do a human.  Also, Ash seems a lot smarter now.  Before he was an idiot, so much so that in a gym match he only brought 1 pokemon against 3, and he did that because that one pokemon was his stratagy.  It was his stratagy because it had a type advantage.  Now, he is clearly a much smarter character, and i can't really explain it well, so if you're curious, watch the anime. Team rocket though are still pretty lame, but i can see why they're even still here, bacause they give a reason for a battle to start, anywhere anytime.  They're still lame though, and it would be nice to see the protagonists beat people who at least have dignity... Oh yeah, something i forgot.  There is something strange going on.  Ash actually has a past with someone!  Yes, you read right, Ash was a child and has a childhood friend!  They're obviously going to develop this, but i just wanted to say this because its an example of some of the good writing they're doing.  They're giving a backstory?  Only anime that are at least worthy of being called decent do that!  What does it mean?  Well, it means that there will be a proper story (like each episode actually having a meaning, rather than just some action happening between a gym battle) , more propper character development, and is a concequence of good, thoughtful writing used to make a good anime.  Hopefully now you understand why I gave 8/10, as the characters aren't written the best ever, but they're pretty darn decent and are actually as well developed and written as many other anime, and although a little patchy, looks hopeful. Overall, the anime is interesting, the characters are connectable and strangly enough, i am actuall interested in what will happen next episode, because the writing is good, they're using many techniques that are what makes a good anime, and is not just a goofy kids show that is just there to promote the game, but they actually are trying to make it something people what to watch, and if you have seen pokemon the origin, than you can see many similarities between the two, which is obviously dues to the origin beeing popular, especially amoung fans.  Whilst the nime isn't amazingly written, it is taking care with what it's doing, and with an already interesting idea (pokemon btw), it is enjoyable and worth watching, but not that good because the writing isn't that neat yet, and in some areas still childish, but it's fixed many problems with the anime and i enjoy watching it more.  But don't pin your hopes up, because it isn't revolutionary for pokemon, just they've made it better and many faults are still there.  The main difference is, you can see care has gone into it. Thankyou for reading, and if you have anything you want to say, please don't be shy and leave a comment.  I'd love to hear your opinions and if you have anything you want to say, please do.  Id also like some constructive critisism, but please nothing without reason, as i'd most likely take that as offence, which i'm not trying to inflict on you, so please don't inflict on me.  Also if there is any way of improving my review, please say so, as i'd love some advise since this is my secound review.

I am Japanese I think there is something wrong because I use translation. As you can see, I wrote the review, but it seems that Peacock seems to be good, so to tell the truth, I would like you to watch the first episode rather than read the review. And if you feel that it is "interesting" or "something different than before", please skip to episode 7 and watch it. (At the end of the review, I wrote an advice (?) For those who are thinking of watching the whole story, so please see only that if you like) I used to watch AG, DP and BW until the beginning, but I wasn't an enthusiastic fan, but rather because I was watching because I was broadcasting when I turned on TV at dinner time. With the 20th anniversary movie version "Kimi ni Kimita!" As a kick, I think that even someone like me who had somehow watched past works may be interested in recent Pokemon, so if this is the case, I want to recommend the XY series, so I will post a review. By the way, the reason why the title was "For those who were watching Pokemon a long time ago" is because this work is the culmination of Satoshi's journey, but another reason was when I was watching I felt that the target age group was clearly higher than that of Pokemon. Of course, I think that it can be enjoyed even by younger people, but it is probably that "people who have become older to some extent (more than junior high school students? = People who used to watch Pokemon in the old days) can fully enjoy the charm of this work" I think As with other people, the script, drawing, camera work, direction, and music are all wonderful in this XY series, and I am impressed by the high quality of the work and the enthusiasm of the staff, but above all What impressed me, however, was that the story started when Satoshi grew up. Satoshi of AG / DP often felt emotional and had a childish impression. However, Satoshi of XY is pure, hot and straight, and the human nature, skill as a trainer, knowledge, and tactics have already grown through the journey of the past work, and everyone's admiration. Those who have watched past works will surely be impressed by the courageous appearance of Satoshi who has grown up. I was also impressed by the power up of the familiar rocket team. In AG / DP, it was the impression that the formation was often reversed, but in this work, it became more and more competitive and sticky to some extent (especially strong sonance!). The customary mechanism has a function and design that are well thought out. In addition, I was impressed by the fact that there are times when I become very clever in my daily routine. And even though I didn't think about it in the old days, Megumi Hayashibara and Shinichiro Miki's slightly runaway enthusiasm is very interesting. And Takeshi also wants to say, but those who have been watching the DP up to the final episode have left, as you know, so unfortunately it will not appear in this work. However, the members of the XY party are wonderful, so I will briefly introduce them. First of all, for the heroine Serena, she left the house for reasons such as "I want to meet Satoshi who helped me when I was young" and "I want to escape from the practice of the Psyhorn Racer", she was empty and dreamed of being a Pokemon performer through the journey. It is carefully drawn to find the goal of Karos Queen and to help and grow with the Pokemon. Serena is a highlight of this work, so I will refrain from spoiling any more, but she often talks about her appearance and romantic comedy description with Satoshi, but it is just a part of the charm I want to keep it. Next is Citron & Eureka. The interaction between my brother Citron, who is a little unreliable, and his symmetrical sister, Yurika, who is well-established, has a good tempo and creates a peaceful atmosphere of the work. The series of inventions of Citron (Citronic Gear) is one of the highlights of this classic work. Also, Eureka's Sylvepre (nampa for her brother) is cute and funny. Also, the depth of love between the two brothers and sisters is sometimes drawn, which makes me feel warm. The story is a little off the mark, but this XY series is the culmination of Satoshi's journey. However, even if you don't worry, "I may not enjoy it because I last saw Pokemon long ago," "I don't know about new Pokemon or Megasinka, so I can't keep up with the current Pokemon." It's okay. As in the past, Satoshi, Pikachu, and rocket groups will be there, so if you have a piece called Pokemon engraved somewhere in your life, you will surely be able to smoothly enter the Pokemon world as a continuation of that journey. It should be possible. Please enjoy the Karos journey.
