Okay, this has been floating around the blog for a while and I feel that a fight is going to break out if something isn’t done. So, I'm going to clear up the confusion. What is written below sticks with 4kids version of the continuity. This mainly includes Canada, the United States of America, Australia, parts of Asia (Singapore?) and even parts of the United Kingdoms.
Now, what is the difference between 4kids and RAI? Aside from the voice acting, A LOT! Even the stories are completely different but they use the exact same scenes such as season one, episode five (Date with Disaster).
I’m also going to note what realm/dimension they come from. Note the changes when I post Name That Princess! RAI-style later on this week.
Yes! She officially discovered that she was a princess in season one, episode eighteen (Senior Witches Go to Earth) while Icy is giving her ultimatum about how her ancesters have earned their right to the Dragonfire after spending centuries tracking it until they found it on Sparks just before Daphne hid it “inside the heir to the kingdom’s throne, inside you Bloom.” Any other earlier reference, primarily from the Witches, only alluded to her having the power of the Dragonfire and not the fact that she’s a princess. Daphne and Faragonda first started hinting to the fact that Bloom might be a princess or guardian of the Dragonfire in season one, episode fifteen (Pushing the Envelope) with their astral journey to Lake Ethemera (sp?) which turns out to be Lake Fortress of Light or Lake Roccaluci in the RAI version, I think. It’s a minor continuity error, anyways. Moving on.
Yes! She made this extremely clear during season one, episode one (It Feels Like Magic). Proudly hails from Solaria.
No! As far as we know in the 4kids continuity, she has never officially claimed to be a princess or referenced as one. She also claims to hail from Third Moon of Marigold.
Yes! She stated this in season one, episode two (More Than a High School). On another note, it has just occurred to me that this is the only reference to Alfea being a high school and not a college. I guess this means that Bloom is fourteen years old at the beginning of the show if she graduates from Alfea in season four. Musa also claims to hail from the Harmonic Nebula.
No! As far as we know, she has never claimed to be or referenced as one. I will explain this further in Name That Princess! RAI-style for those who are wondering why I keep claiming that Tecna is a princess. If not, you can go back to my previous post entitled ‘Tecna, the Princess.’ Tecna has stated that she comes from the Binary Galaxy.
Yes! She made this very clear in season two, episode two (Princess of Tides) although it was stated by Bloom just after a commercial break. She claims to come from the Realm of Tides.
