"Purin Toujou, Mimi to Shippo mo Gei no Uchi"|
(Enter Pudding, The Ears and Tail are Part of the Act!)

Bleh, blah, and any of it's variations describe my thoughts on this episode. Like I've asked before, why do the filler episodes get the good treatment while the important character introducing episodes get the crud treatment? Only one of the character intro episodes left, and I bet it'll get the same treatment as this and the others got...
They were doing so well. Well, comparatively at least. But what happened with this episode? It's as if they used a different team.
The script was really bad today. Kiki's voice is a cross between a whiny brat and an annoying teenager. Kiki also seems to live in a shelter. Yes, a shelter. I can't wait for episode 20 to see what they do.
Ribbon Pudding Ring Inferno is named Tambourine Trench. Yes, the attack makes a trench while flying, but the attack ITSELF traps the enemy in a blob of Pudding. It doesn't make trenches across the enemy.
|For some reason, maybe to make the scenes more consistent, the Kishu/Deep Blue scene is moved to the beginning of the episode.|
|The text graffitti on the walls where Ichigo and Pudding are hiding is erased.|
|(4 seconds) Ichigo trying to get past Pudding but phailing while on the bridge is cut.|
|(2 seconds) A snippet of Pudding chasing Ichigo was cut.|
|(1 second) Ichigo pausing before asking Pudding who she is. I hate snippets.|
|The dub switched two of the scenes showing Pudding looking all sad-like. The original had the close up one first, and after the eyecatch, the far away one. The dub has the far away, the the close up.|
"Kiki, for the last time! Okay, that's a bird! So...yeah!"
The way this line was delievered made it so stupid.
|While the original just shows silent still frames from when Ichigo was yelling at Pudding, the dub shows it in color with sound.|
|Originally, Kishu just took the spirit of the woman because he was desperate and couldn't find a perfect one. The dub has Dren act like it's the kind he was trying to find.|
"Guy there...I mean, hi there."
This and the speech before it about a ham and cheese sandwich representing a secret identity. Food comparisons are silly.
|(14 seconds) Ichigo blushing when Aoyama leans closer to her, a shot of the clock, Ichigo running, and then a shot of the fountain in the park are all deleted for a random reason.|
|(3 seconds) Pudding laying on the ground after getting hit by the ball is cut short.|
|The dub moved the mini-rap from when Ichigo is standing in front of Pudding to right after her transformation. But that's been done before, so meh.|
|(1 second) The back of Ichigo's head is cut. Because everyone knows backs of heads cause disease.|
"I'm gonna stop you the mew way!"
As opposed to the bark way? Or the squeak way?
|(4 seconds) Ichigo saying "Mew Pudding" and then Pudding staring at the pendant is cut.|
|(17 seconds, 1 second, 1 second) Beginning, a snippet in the middle, and end of Pudding's transformation. The beginning cut is the longest one so far, too.|
|(16 seconds) Pudding's attack makes enemies get stuck in a blob of pudding. The dub cuts this out, and a few other scenes stuck to the cut pudding. Pudding telling Ichigo to attack, and the beginning of Ichigo's attack are also cut.|
|Dren seems to want to create a Predasite army. If he was doing that...he would actually collect spirits in great masses and then send them out at random instead of getting only one an episode. This is what happens when dubbers change random things.|
|(6 seconds) The original had a longer ending, the last scene being all cute with Pudding asking for a tip.|
