She wanted to finally get what she wanted. This desire shaped her into the coarse yet dependable lady she is today. She will devote anything to become someone she can be proud of. James, on the other hand, had a very privileged upbringing. He grew up very wealthy, under strict authority, and was arranged to marry an obsessive, controlling woman. All this caused James to run away from home, eventually joining Team Rocket and meeting Jessie, who he grew extremely loyal to.
James has a goofy personality, but has found comfort and passion in his new criminal life. These three have an amazing loyalty to one another and to their mission.
They work brilliantly together. That's the only thing keeping their continued pursuits justified for me. But, even if I do still remember their backstories, I feel like they are just empty shells now.
Maybe it's their changed voice actors for the dub they don't have too much emotion anymore, especially James'or the fact their facial expressions aren't really unique anymore they're so often making the same, typically "evil" facesI just sense very little personality or character development anymore.
Though it's cute that Jessie is still so passionate about acting.

Why do I insist? So, no, Springsteen didn't make any major changes in the setlist for the last night of Springsteen on Broadway. His last performance at the Walter Kerr Theatre wasn't like the last night of a multinight rock stand, nor was it like the last night of a profit-turning run of a Broadway musical. It was the last performance of a one-man show. Bruce's statement on the closing of Springsteen on Broadway, posted December 15, Since the s at least, there has been a familiar rhythm to Springsteen's full-band concerts: The second quarter is where Springsteen has usually put the heavier stuff.
That was where most of the Nebraska songs went on the Born in the U. In Springsteen on Broadway, that familiar rhythm was wholly ignored.
Springsteen led off with a variation on the Foreword to his autobiography, then gave us the trustworthy stemwinder,"Growin' Up. There were jokes to be sure, some of them wheezers, but the overall tone was intense. I don't think I've ever seen Springsteen pause in performance before, to take a breath and just leave the silence to fill the air.
No account? No worries.
Even when he went from high electric to acoustic in previous performances, it was all non-stop, each new color following the other, with no purely silent pauses to break the momentum. In Springsteen on Broadway, on this final night of the run, he paused.
He would linger on a word. He even lingered on notes and phrases in his later duets with Patti Scialfa on "Tougher than the Rest" and "Brilliant Disguise," and I saw the concentration needed in those cases to stay in harmony. December 15, - photograph by Sammy Steinlight Previous reviews have established that almost all the blocking of Springsteen on Broadway was planned out to the last detail beforehand.
Nevertheless, Springsteen's fidgetiness during the long monologues I haven't watched the Netflix special yet — I wanted to go into the show as cold as possible — but I am dying to know how precisely Springsteen's physical movements were planned in advance. My most indelible memory of the entire show is Springsteen sitting on the piano bench the wrong way, fingers together, rocking up and down as he talked at length about what it was like to walk through Freehold as a child with his mom.
Even after fourteen months of this show, Springsteen appeared fully in the moment as we watched him, as if the act of memory was happening spontaneously onstage. The pauses and hesitations were all a part of that. Throughout that first half, he seemed frequently on the verge of slipping into reverie. Once again, that may have been acting, but if so, it was good acting.
In this performance, Springsteen seemed as if he could get lost in memories if he let himself. After having read so many articles about the subject, I already understood some of the inherited mental health issues that Springsteen has overcome with the help of therapy and pharmacology. In those moments onstage, however, I didn't just understand those issues.
For the first time, I truly saw the potential dangers for this man of letting either silence or inaction get the better of him. In a way, Springsteen has been drafting this show for the last half-century, trying to use fragments of his life in his onstage performances since his signing with Columbia at the very latest. Inspired by FM DJs, the young Springsteen told stories between songs during his set, some true, some exaggerated, many mythic.
From his descriptions of living next door to Ducky Slattery's gas station in to the infernally reenacted kitchen sit-downs with Douglas that introduced "It's My Life" a few years later, down to tales of his visits to the draft office and one of his old family homes in Freehold, Springsteen's first 15 years of wide performance were dotted with autobiographical tidbits.
In those early cases, the anecdotes were shorter and less unified. The only traces of all those older, bootleg-inscribed anecdotes in Springsteen on Broadway were a condensed version of the story of the night he met Clarence Clemons, and the tagline of the "Growin' Up" legend he told on the Darkness tour.
Tellingly, in both cases, he reduced the scale of the stories in this performance, stripping them of their more legendary or mythical qualities. In general, though, the stories in Springsteen on Broadway were longer than the ones Springsteen told onstage during the s and s.
Especially during that first arresting hour, Springsteen's songs were not the main event. The stories around them were. During that section of the show, the songs served as punctuation at the end of Springsteen's anecdotal sentences. He used songs in Springsteen on Broadway the way Hannah Gadsby used jokes in her one-woman show Nanette — to drive larger points home, and to turn dramaturgical corners. December 15, - photograph by Sammy Steinlight The audience, seemingly a mixture of true fans and occasional listeners, all seemed relieved in the second half of the show when Springsteen finally returned to some of his better-known hits.
The deep blues version of "Born in the U. After that, the crowd exhaled when he slid into "Tenth Avenue Freeze-out. The songs were more the point now than the stories, until "The Rising" finally arrived with no introduction or conclusion at all. This was where the more casual fans in the audience could finally get a version of the intimate Springsteen concert they might have come in expecting. This, too, had been planned, of course.
The most audacious transition of the night was when Springsteen moved directly from "Dancing in the Dark" into "Land of Hope and Dreams. It is a lesson of which he has spent most of this century trying to remind his audience. Earlier in the show, Springsteen had introduced "Thunder Road" by talking about his love of open spaces, even empty spaces, and that indeed was how he had ended his autobiography, by talking about taking out his bike on the last good day of riding weather.
He ended Springsteen on Broadway differently, however, with the story he tells in the penultimate chapter of his autobiography: Back in the early s, could any original Springsteen fan have predicted that the climax of one of his performances would ever reside in a relatively devout recitation of the Our Father?
They probably would have considered that about as likely as Bob Dylan turning born-again Christian. In a lot of ways, though, this was perfectly in keeping with the last decade of Springsteen's career, which began with him singing "Tonight all the dead are here" as jubilantly as he could.
He might be half-Italian, but Springsteen's Irish fraction abided in the vital beginning and end of this show, with the crowd-pleasing part capped in the middle. I think I just saw the last Broadway performance of a Springsteen play, a memory play like the ones that Tennessee Williams and Conor McPherson have written. Theoretically, it could be performed in future years by another performer, as an autobiographical musical like Jonathan Larson's tick…tick…boom originally a one-man show has been restaged over the last two decades with performers other than its author.
The point in this play is not the prowess of the performer. The point is the skill of the storyteller. Bruce Springsteen has told a story in it, one that he has been trying to tell for almost half a century. He has traced a full arc of his life, deeper than his scattered s anecdotes, fuller than the first draft of his autobiography that we got in the carefully sequenced live set, more sharply drawn the periodic summations he has offered to reporters from Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and The New Yorker over the years, and more powerful because more compressed than even the story that he finally told us in his autobiography.
And what is the arc that Springsteen has traced?

A story of transformed desire, of a boy who wanted one set of things and a man who discovered that he needed another. Of a guarded individual who discovered that, while the superficial love of thousands can be the sweetest addiction, the deep love of just four people can be an entire world. Of a long-haired greaser who discovered that a nation at its best can be not just a death trap for its young, but a hope for every nation on earth. Of a superstar who discovered that, when life is at its best, we don't just pull out of here to win individually.
