Sahgo’s Notes: Well, here we go again.
A nice episode overall, the dub is very serviceable. The avoiding of the k-word is annoying, but let’s forget that. Oh, inconsistency is all over this comparison!
DIE, AUDIENCE! DIE!
For some really weird reason, MachGaogamon’s Gaoga Tornado was changed to Gaoga Tornade in the dub…… yeah. Curse these people, they made me waste a Digimon Analyzer box!
Nothing like cutting positive scenes…
We can already see that Disney (Disney, isn’t it?) isn’t really good with digital editing. Except for episode 7’s citra madness thing.
Strike 2.(As a side note: take a look at the up-left corner of the dub screen. Can you see it? Yes, they forgot to erase a small part of Gizumon-XT’s beam. Weird….).
And… well, Falcomon’s new evolve sequence was a little changed thanks to Disney’s (Disney?) [Studiopolis! 😀 – Macho Duck] lack of ability. They simply added a giant flash in the ending of the scene, when Yatagaramon’s flies around the screen and the word “YATAGARAMON” is appearing in the background, so then it would be EASIER for them to change to “CROWMON” (changing it only in the last frames, where there is no movement, so, easier).
And, yes, Yatagaramon’s name was changed to Crowmon. This is not a very accurate change. Yatagaramon comes from Yatagarasu, a character of the japanese folklore. Yatagarasu is the bird of the sun goddess Amaterasu (I think those who played Okami must be familiar with this name). Even so, “Garasu” means “Crow”, so… well, it’s not totally inaccurate.
As additional information, in the Digimon World DS game he is called “Yatakaramon”).
Macho Duck: Josephine also brings up that Falcomon didn’t “digivolve” correctly in the dub. In the original, when Digimon evolve to Perfect form, they don’t announce their evolution to Adult form. So, while the animation shows the Child form (Falcomon), then Adult Form (Peckmon), and finally Perfect form (Yatagaramon), the voice only announces, “Falcomon evolve! … Yatagaramon!”
This is also inconsistent with how the other digimon in the dub evolve. They also don’t announce their Adult forms, but they Warp “Digivolve” instead of simply evolving.
I watched the dub evolution sequences (don’t you ever make me do that again!) and confirmed this. :B Thanks, Josephine!
