Y u do dis?
Has anyone actually watched the subs? Though speaking about it now, I kind of want to go back and watch it all.
God this shit was awesome.
Not really. It just feels natural.
Without a doubt, the most God Awesome 10-year-old EVER.
yeah it was a surprisingly great dub. All the voices fit perfectly to the characters. Then again, most Anime at that time had decent dubbing. It's only todays Anime that have shit dubs.
WHAT!!! That dub was awful. It gives Speedracer and Astroboy a run for its money.
To anyone wondering, these are the dubs.
Have you heard Shuffle's dub? Oh lawd
It was a time when studios didn't have a set cast of recyclable VA's on contract. Outside talent was welcome and explored.
There was a guy on YouTube in 2006 who actually started subbing the series. He went to Japan, found some VHS copies of the original anime, came back to the US, ripped them, encoded them properly, and put some nice subs along with a good translation. He uploaded those clips to YouTube and I had the pleasure of watching the first few episodes.
Then some faggots flagged his entries for copyright violations and the videos were deleted and he was banned. I'm still butthurt over not saving his name and contact info, we could have gotten in touch and provided raws off of share or something.
True but bitter story.
I liked it, but there was one thing I hated. GOODIES AND BADDIES.
I wanted to rip off my ears everytime I heard it.
Oh man!!! ;_;
This show as the most fucking awesome of all the kid-monster anime of the day.
It was also a time when more anime was on television. I mean, we had anime on Disney, Fox Family, Fox Kids, KidsWB, Cartoon Network, SciFi, international channel. Anime was the shit thing when Pokemon was big.
Man, though. Those were the days of TV anime - the kids stuff on KidsWB, the slightly more mature yet still Kids stuff on FoxKids, and the adult stuff on CN. It was fucking brilliant.
The Japanese version had a nice OP:
Agreed. I think Genki's VA also plays Dilandau in Escaflowne. I didn't like him very much in the latter role, but I must admit he was pretty damn good in Monster Rancher. Same goes for everyone else.
A long time ago, I remember seeing some porn of Holly with her getting fucked by Tiger. Didn't give me a very good first impression of furfags.
I couldn't get into this show. The rock guy was cool though.
Almost everyone in this thread needs to get underage banned or something.
If you consider Monster Rancher as nostalgia bomb... sheesh
ok, I admit watching the first 2 episodes of this
Somebody get this kid some glasses.
I'm 19, it aired when I was 10.
/r/ing in /a/
Post moar Wolf and Pixie. They were the best two characters.
Never could get into Monster Rancher, but they came out with like 20 games already.
We seriously need subs for this show.
What the fuck happened to that channel? I remember staying up until 12am to watch all of the Slayers series. Every night...fucking good times.
I think it worked because nobody really knew it was "anime". It was still just "cartoons".
Nice PROMOTIONS there, Genki.
As stated, it's 9 years old. You've either got to be a troll or a misguided little kid yourself.
come on /a/ ALL FOR ONE ATTACK
Fox Kids showed it in the Anime Invasion block. Does that count?
Ending made me ;_;
Pixie was hot.
Probably my first or second fap to an animu character ever.
This anime ruined me.
I looked it up on the internet. www.monster-rancher.com. They had an irc channel. I was 10 years old. Everything went fuck down hill from there.
He was awesome.
fuck yea monster rancher. i remember when i was a kid, i always loved tiger's voice but now i barely even remember what it sounds like... so sad...
also i shed manly tears when big blue died for pixie...
Yeah I was bummed too.
If anyone has a lot of time on their hands, you might consider looking on YouTube if the videos might have been uploaded again. The scene in particular I most remember was Genki laying on grass, talking to Holly and going "This really is Monster Farm".
Same, but it was also epic as well. I wiped away the tears.
Coolest thing about Genki
He'd fucking fight monsters with nothing but his roller skates.
You guys know who's the greatest character this how ever came out with? THE WALL, THE MUTHERFUCKING WALL THAT TALKED AND FLOATED
The whole series is on youtube.
Same here. Digimon took my animu girly tears virginity
Dude, Monster Rancher on the PS1 was an old ass game. It's 90's nostalgia and is perfectly valid.
You used to get an amazing monster when you put in Mariah Carey's christmas album. the crackhead bitch.
Oh god, I remember that. Nostalgia bomb #9001
He was the only character of these kinds of shows to actually fight hand to hand, too. Even in Digimon/Pokemon, the monsters usually fought for the leads; Genki pulled his fair share of kills in the story.
I went through so many CD's and always got a relatively shitty monster.
I remember seeing an episode where the main character meets a cliché rival character. He had white hair and a long whip that supposedly hurted a lot, even though it was way too long and thin. It kinda floated mid-air most of the time.
I found that fucking awesome.
I used to watch this on TV after school when I was in High School because it was the only thing on that wasn't an infomercial or soap opera. Ah nostalgia.
HOLY SHIT NOSTALGIA BOMB
No, no. We want the Japanese original.
The dubs aren't exactly hard to find, lol.
The guy trained his monsters by whipping them, IIRC genki beats him up over that.
there was an ending?
Shit, not Digimon. Monster Ranchers, dur.
Don't hurt me :(
I remember catching this on BKN back in the day. Only saw it in bits and pieces, but I was there for all the right plot twists and when they finally awakened Moo's real body. Never saw the end though.
We need a torrent of this.
Turns out the phoenix was in everyone, everyone sacrificed themselves to become the phoenix, they beat Mu and everyone died. Ganki or whatever the main guys name was woke up in a junkyard and remembered them and moved on.
Wow, thanks anon, I've been looking for the fate of this show for a long time.
There this one line of Genki's I'll always remember (actually, it's the only one I can remember).
He's staring down this massive robot called a MalKarba (spelling?)
"HEY MALKARBA! I HEARD YOUR MOTHER WAS A Y2K BUG!"
You bastard! ;_;
I don't know. I'm downloading a torrent but it's probably the dub.
I see that the dub is on youtube.
Original ending was baaaaaaaaw. Never saw season 2, which was reputed to be epic fail.
In the final battle against Muu, the 5 friends merge their souls to reconstruct the Phoenix. Genki is leading the Falcon Dragons in an area assault, trying to keep morale amongst the troops up since Muu is so fucking powerful. The Phoenix manages to kill Muu, and they both fall defeated. Right when victory is at hand, the Phoenix glances the Falcon Genki is riding and he falls off. He then falls to the ground and "dies", turning back into a Mystery Disk (since he was the only human to actually come from one, which was how he came to our world).
He awakens in the real world, blocks from his house in an alley, and it's raining outside. He's really, really depressed, thinking his friends are all dead and even if they weren't, he is. Then then appear as apparitions (or I think it's his imagination?) telling him they'll always be together, and will meet again in the far future. Genki stands up, wipes his tears, then moves on with his life. It's his first step into adulthood.
One of the most awesome 10 year olds ever.
I love Monster Rancher with all my heart. Definitely my favorite of the 'Mons' that came to the West by the late 90's-early 00's. It had the best of both Pokemon and Digimon - Pokemon's innocent and childlike charm, and Digimon's more mature (and finite) overarching storyline.
Also, Pixie is hot.
If they say [MR] on them, they probably are.
We grew up with that. And kids these days have Naruto and Bleach. Sucks for them
Guess so, but it doesn't bother me anyway.
or someone born in early 80's
Two words, anonymous.
Wait, SEASON TWO!?
>>We grew up with that. And kids these days have Naruto and Bleach.
Jesus, you're right. I guess that's why I'm such a huge GARfag - my I was lead into adulthood by awesome childhood heroes.
I'm afraid of what's going to happen when the underagedb& grow up when we know what they've been exposed to.
I remember crying boyish tears back then. Fuck yeah, Genki.
I wonder if MoonTube has videos.
Share users search モンスターファーム
Such a downer ending. One could say that it's unnecessarily depressing, but I personally found it to be beautiful.
This is how it ended.
not the ending that spoiler anon said btw.
Under aged indeed
Genki was pretty amazing for a mon protagonist, despite his age he was really intelligent, charismatic and powerful. He taught himself to use his own ki, and also taught the other monsters to use it as well.
I could never tell which girl liked him more though, Holly or Pixie. Holly was sort of like the girl next door with some interest, but their relationship was more sibling-ish given their ages.
But Pixie, maaaaaan she wanted Genki's cock. Especially after she turned into an Angel.
oh god ;_;
I remember all my cousins hated Monster Rancher because they thought it was a Pokemon ripoff.
What a bunch of retards.
POST SOME FUCKING PIXIE
He means season three, where many characters come back from the dead for no reason (like Durahan (WTF)) and Genki and co go through a stupid tournament arc. I haven't bothered to check it out, because I'm satisfied enough with this ending as it is.
I finally know the ending of this anime. Fucking awesome
I don't habeeb this.
That's the second season's ending, when everyone came back alive and they had this tournament (?). Really weird sequel.
Sounds similar to the DEEP Pokemon plot discussion.
Anybody remember the commercial break raps?
UNLOCK YOUR DISK!
And what was Season two about?
Anybody remember the commercial break raps?
UNLOCK YOUR DISK!
I remember expecting a lot of the new series when it came out, like how/why the Japanese corporation made a program that somehow teleported people to an alternate universe. Like, I was expecting an older version of Holly or something as like the president of the company.
When it was still on air, it got canceled right before the epic fight so I never got to see the GAR.
No wonder I fail at life.
Genki makes a Genki dama.
DVDs for the first season have already been released, season 2 comes out June 2 of this year.
learn to copy and paste, it works fine for me
Season 2 was when Genki & co. were fighting Durandal (armored knight guy) and then Moo himself, which all descended to >>10119301. Show should've stopped there.
FUCK YEAH. I used to sing that all the time.
don't you mean durahan? or did they change the name somewhere? (game says durahan)
Durahan, yes. I always get the name mixed up.
Forget about Ash and Tai, Genki was fucking awesome.
this was an awesome show. definitely better than pokemon.
i wonder what kids today think of one piece. it seems to have had a similar treatment with the hip hop opening and everything (though monster rancher OP is infinitely cooler, and i don't know how much it was edited). it's obviously the more "out there" alternative to naruto, like monster rancher was to pokemon.
Ending was even more awesome than I remember. But it still felt a bit short - if it was on FOX Family they might have edited it a bit, I know they cut out all references to "terrorist bombings" from Digimon post 9/11
Loved this show. The channel totally skipped the ep(s) where they fought Naga though.
And yes, Pixie is hot.
Actually, now that I think about it... The ending to the first season of Monster Rancher was like the Pokemon coma dream thing. Or... Was that the first episode of the second season. I can't remember anymore. Anyway, I felt like shit when I watched it. I almost cried too.
But here everyone revived. So it's fine, It's fine ;_;...
Coma dream? Refresh my memory.
As a kid I was looking all over the house for CDs to get me a monster because it fascinated me. At one point I found a music CD that was music made for Princess Diana's funeral (or something to that effect) that belonged to my parents. They never planned to open it, for sentimental reasons. I found that motherfucker and tore into it.
I got an Angel.
My parents remember it with even more sentimentality now.
Remember her? I completely forgot her name.
Anon rewrote pokemon.
Your moonroll only makes my penis harder. This fucker is on repeat.
I'm fairly doubtful about it getting DVD rips and subs, considering how old it is, but who knows. It does bring me great joy, however, that the Japan hasn't completely forgotten this just yet. ಥ_ಥ
Granity, I think.
Ah, Granity. That's it.
Oh shit, I did watch the last episode. It was the last 2 minutes I missed. Fuck yes, my childhood regret have been lifted. My faith on nightshift /a/ is coming back.
It's a little joke that arose in /a/ not too long ago, that 99% of the Pokémon anime all really just a dream and that Ash has been in a coma for the whole time (and still is). The 1%, of course, being the awesome beginning, when Ash was still very inexperienced and when Team Rocket was actually threatening.
All that followed, including Ash being this master trainer, Pikachu being nearly invincible, and Team Rocket being... well, Team Rocket, is actually all part of a sleeping Ash's rich imagination.
After all these years I still want to sex Holly.
Anyone else notice how great the dub is?
There was so little 34 of her!! ;_;
Anyone who has watched it.
Good luck to anyone trying to find its original, which had so much to it that wasn't aired on the dub, including penis jokes, violence, FUCKING BLOOD, etc.
The dub is great because we grew up with it.
Holly used to get me so hard
Holy shit, this is still alive.
We find Pixie very sexy. Might be because she reminds us of Demona.
Oh man i am so downloading this.
Minor role made me sad, though. I liked Colt in MR2 :(
The future of mankind is essentially fucked, because we'll have Narutofags running countries.
