I can only agree with everything in this video. (Beside 5. which doesn't include me because I already know what I will see and I'm somewhat glad it's not canon.)

Dub version is a pain in the butt, also in germany. Even though like 50% of the actors seem to do their job decent for once in the SM dub now, the other 50% still gives me earcancer. And then there is the fact that "our" Ash got a new, a male voice. The actor is a good one I guess, but.. it doesn't fit the charater. Supported by the fact that in doesn't sound like 10, more like 15. Newbies may find it ok, maybe even some old fans, but it's weirding me out and gives me cringes, sadly.

Regarding music: I can't describe how much I adore the old soundtracks John Loeffler & Co made in first few years, even these odd movie CDs with different artists and even that Christmas Bash CD (Not the german one, german Christmas Bash is horrible.), but these days it's mostly crap and a hell of reusage and remixing. When I hear that really bad Goldfarb tracks are reused in a 20min episode up to 8 times, then... ugh... no thanks. -_-
And yeah, replacing already english original soundtracks. Fucking really? This was the cheaper option? I guess we can be happy that we got a half original Chiisaki Mono. Where the english text is not a translation, but the the text still may fit kinda together I guess?

And I totally don't want to watch edited episodes and movies and don't wanna have complete rewritten dialogues anymore, so watching dubs is one way or another no option for me anymore. And looking at TPCi & western TV publisher, this will never change. They don't give a fuck about the series/movies, but still feel the urge to edit entire minutes of some episodes.
And who didn't notice: The western movie posters got 0 effort. The font is shaky as fuck, cleary quick cheap ass work. The german one even got translated wrong, which is super embarrassing and just shows they had no idea what they were doing.

I understand what it tries to say, but.. I dunno...
Guess that ad is there to wake memories which is nice? Not really sure what to think. But I like the details it has.

So, since I was told to better post here what things I really dislike about the current PM-net layout, here they are:

1. Why do i visit a Pokémon page?

90% to look for new news, 10% for information about stuff that's not to be found on the mainpage.
What do i see first? A giant info box about latest episodes and DVD/Blu-Ray releases. And I already have a big 1920x1200 screen.
Max. ~50% of all fans watch/ the anime, even lessen buy DVDs/Blu-Rays or visit events. So most of them are probably not that interested to read about what comes next. Especially most of the adult fans don't watch the Anime anymore.
Below that box is another box with latest imagoboard stuff, latest news short list and latest forum posts.
I sometimes take a look at the imageboard stuff, latest news short list is ok to have, but not at that place in my opinion, and actually my mind completely ignores the forums stuff. I personally even struggle to find a link somewhere else to the forums (alwas forget it's existence in general) or the imageboard. I always think they are in the "Main" dropdown.
So now I always have to scroll down twice to be able to read the latest news (Did I mention I have a 1200p screen?), the reason why I mostly come to the page. And this really annoys me and probably other people as well. Because most of the information I see first is secondary information that's ok to know, but not reason why i came.
People are lazy, even too lazy to scroll down. It's like a newspaper. I don't know that much about webdesign/newspaper design, but if the main information doesn't catch someones eye instantly somehow, most people won't come back in future if they have another source. Maybe only come back for more detailed information or pics since the information that's provided here is actually great.

So the secondary informations should be where they belong and where they were in previous styles. In tables on the left and/or right side of the page. Also a good place for all the affilates etc.
Could also be used to list current event Pokémon by country in tabs (Main one selectable in profile?)


2. Big, bigger, newsboxes.

To news itself: Nothing is wrong with the information itself, it's great. But: Frigging huge newsboxes! I have seen newsboxes taking up to 4 screens, so up to 4k pixels in heigh because all the informtion with all its - sometimes - big pics is instantly visible. And these huge newsboxes are making the page really long, so a lot of annoying scrolling.
It mostly doesn't need any images to describe the news. Pics/Videos are nice to have left/right/below of the text, rarely above, but are mostly not the important part. I don't need the full size pic of San Francisco or the American Diancie DVD. They would be perfect ok as 200p thumbnail on the right side of the text. Like that the box would just be ~400 pixel heigh or so at the end. Perfect for everyone to have a quick look on a new information.
For additional information, pictures, videos, you can make a "Read more" dropdown thingy or whatever that thing is called for news.


3. Hey, we have imageboard, chat and forums! Also Twitter and RSS Feed!

Give them their own buttons, people are too lazy to fiddle with drop down menus. Like that people see they exist!
Since we also have Twitter and RSS Feed, let the people know about them, but not at the end of the page where no one looks. Filb.de for example hat its Twitter feed on the page in a small table. People use them a lot these days.


4. Color sheme

How to describe it.. I have seem this black/white/grey-yellowish sheme on pages who want to sell me champagne. I.. really dislike that grey-yellowish ^^"
It's not really a color you find on pages that have to do with kids / anime / gaming stuff and fun stuff in general.
The banner is nice, I really like the logo and DNS thingy and the characters next to them.


5. Re-sort of some sections

Users / Site updates / Rules / Link to us/ Contact us / About us. - Doesn't really belong into the Main Menu dropdown I think. Should get it's own section on the right side.
Content Database to "Main" or that one mentioned above.
Imageboard / Forum Index to "Main"
Re-name "Content" to "Games"
Give the CD, DVD / Blu-Ray, Songs and maybe Opening/Ending databases their very own section. They are the best parts of the page since there is no other page I know that has such a detailed database about all the media stuff. Maybe name it "Media" or so.


6. Brighter Icons in the little bar in the top-right corner. I tend to oversee that little thing and so the icon for the search bar.


So, here are the things that annoyed me since we use that layout. And I also added some other things that came into my mind while having a look at the page. No idea if it will change anything since the page is supposed to change by the end of the year, but who knows.
