    Great job!

    You guys are going to continue “On the way to a smile” right?
    Your audiobooks are awesome! You can bet I’m a big fan! But I was just wondering, assuming you guys are going to finish the “On the way to a smile” who’s going to be next and when do you guys predict it’ll be out?

    Thanks! And keep up the awesome work! It really does help me get through the roughest of some days!

      We’ll have to see, it all depends on when i get the lines in. Case of Shinra’s cast is pretty much complete, so i might finish Shinra first. Just need to do some rewrites before doing the narration

      Wait I thought Case of ShinRa was the last one. What other is there?

      Then, I’ll wait in a impatient, excited anticipation for it!

      I’ve heard that there are only Seven short stories in “On the way to a smile”

      From the comments below and your reply, there is still “Shinra” and “Nanaki’s” stories to be done..
      Doesn’t Cid, Vincent and Cloud have their own short stories?

      Unfortunately not. FF7 and AC are kinda Case of Cloud, and he has a big part in Tifa’s… that sounds dirty lol. Vincent appears in Case of Nanaki, and he has DoC. Cid appears in Case of Barret, Yuffie and Nanaki.

      That’s a shame, but completely makes sense, thank you for clarifying that for me. 😉

      “Cloud, and he has a big part in Tifa’s…”
      Fan service right here! lol

      Anyways I look forward to Case of Shinra and Nanaki!

    this was done wonderfully the voices were spot on. i have loved ur On The Way To A Smile audiobooks “i call them audiobooks”. i love this but i wanted to ask if ur goin to try to do “Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero-Promise” & “Final Fantasy XIII -Corridor of Memory” &” Final Fantasy XIII Ultimania” “Final Fantasy XIII Ultimania Omega”. the last 3 are books i think “Corridor of Memory” has a translation but not sure about the last 2. i know for sure “episode Zero” has been translated. i would love to have episode zero done like u have done episode I. thanks again for the awesome work u and all the voice actors and every one else that have had a hand in givin us these wonderful creations.

      Is that the “Fragments Before” & “Fragments After” books? Each of those are as long as the OTWTAS novellas put together. So i doubt i would have the stamina to do those. I actually havent played any of the FFXIII games, so im not quite as attached to that story as i am FF7

    10 years late, but thank you for this! Just stumbled on this looking for more FFXIII literature.

    I just read Episode Zero -Promise- recently and was dabbling in the idea of producing an audio drama of that, since an official translation came out a few years ago. (I’m also a podcaster and full-time audiobook editor, so audio is always on the brain.)

    Has there been and discussion of ya’ll adapting Episode Zero?
