*Starts up 108 Harem Fanclub* :megusta:

Ah! As Flare said, I’ve only just gotten around to watching this series and just those three videos released has gushing with fandom feels and good vibes. This is so, so cool! I think my favourite bit has been the unveiling of the depth that each Japanese dialogue gives these characters, especially to someone like Barret, who comes across as a much more chil, hardened, cool guy with his Japanese dialogue. That difference between him saying, “Stop actin’ like a damn kid. Si’down an’ shu’up! And, ”You are not a child. Be cool.” for example. Just ah! Learning that gives me all the chills and thrills. Dunno, you just get the sense of someone who has been through the ropes and is a little tired, but pushes on because this is what he HAS to do for the Planet. Even more so than with his English dialogue. Love it!

Count me as another fan of your voice delivery in these vids xD. Even reading your little musings via the posts you’ve made in this thread has been exciting/eye opening.

Anyway, I’ll stop gushing all over you now, lmao. I do hope you consider letting the TLS host/promote more of this series because what I’ve seen so far has made my whole week. Kudos! :glomp:

I think I nailed the orthopedic underwear segment!! It's got a good joke. The script is done and I'm going to edit the video all night. I thank you guys twice in there!!

I'm the one who took that image, so please go for it. The same goes for any of those images that you like. I'm just absolutely glad that the cache of screenshots that I pulled from the 4th disc so many years back is finally gonna make its way into something bigger. :D

I can't wait to see how this is gonna turn out.

I have to say, I nerdgasmd all over these videos because as someone (well close to) bilingual, I know how translation isn't really as much about language, but culture. These videos are gems, because you rarely see 'translation' analysis of this depth, or, well, at least not in my corners of the Internet :P

Really looking forward to watching the next one, thanks X!

Glad they split it so Wall Market gets it's own episode.

Super interesting as before. I don't want them to stop

Amazing, I had obviously never played the game in Japanese and I'm so surprised as to how much more fleshed out the characters are through their dialogue alone. I struggled to gauge their characters while playing the game and I thought it was just because the graphics were limited and we only had the text to work with. Turns out the original text was fairly revealing as it was. I am loving this series and Tim's sardonic delivery is the cherry on top.

Tim and Jason Schreier will be streaming Wall Market at 4pm eastern

Go like it people, 500 likes and they said they'd do another ;)

I love this so much. I hope the remake captures Aerith's characterisation without her turning into Vanille. They talk about how much more impactful her death would be if they captured the nuances of her character.

I got a new one!

And youtube!

I am starting to get sort of a critical mass of "You didn't cover this part!" messages and comments . . . oh no . . . I wish I could just play the game super-slowly and translate like every line! Though I guess I have, uh, day-jobby stuff to do over here at Kotaku as well lol

We do wanna do another stream, though! So maybe we will! Heck, I hope we do.

Fangu 10/02/2017 07:11 PM

Yass! DO EET!

PS, is your old Twitch account still around? And/ or did you save the vods to a different site? I'd love to check them out.
