Two-parters are going to be difficult for these comparisons because I already typed up all of my thoughts in part one’s section. There’s also no need for a name conversion chart since that was covered in part one as well. All there is to cover now is the quality of this part’s English dub, and as you’ll soon read, it is absolutely flawless. This must have been the episode I remembered when I thought back to how well-dubbed this story was, because it certainly wasn’t part one I was thinking about.
For some reason, this episode’s opening song doesn’t feature any narration by Jimmy in the dub. Since there aren’t any CD releases for the English dubbed songs, this is the only place other than episode one that features a clean version of the English song with no talking over it.
I honestly have nothing to say here. This is without question the best dubbed episode yet. There wasn’t a single change in the entire thing. This was a word for word adaption. I always really liked the combination of Eric Vale and Andrew Rye as writers and this is just another reason why. See you next time!
