Pokemon Origins!

Watched the first episode of Pokemon Origins. The target audience is clearly older Pokemon fans, not the kids watching the anime. The animation quality is excellent, the character designs are much closer to the games, and the fights are just one notch more vicious–no blood (at least in the first episode), but there is biting and screaming that’s a bit uncomfortable to watch. Basically it’s got a good level of intensity of the sort that’s usually lacking in the TV series.
