Ohhhhh maaan that reveal about Red XII daydreaming about his grampappy in Costa del Sol sucker-punched me right in the feels. Thanks for yet another great set of videos, Tim. I hope your bird-hating friend makes more hilarious cameos.

Funny! I always thought Techno-freak was a jab at his artificial limb.

And I thought it was a jab at how eager Barret was to see the mako reactor being built!

This has been, and is, fascinating. Any time you can take a quote-unquote 'oldie' and pull legitimately new things--that were actually there the whole time--to the surface, you're on to something special. One of things I've found most captivating about this, though is that, as much as there are times where the English translators in their rush missed things, downplayed emotional beats, outright butchered things--there are seemingly as many times where the English script added a flavor without which I wouldn't have been sucked into the game the way I was. For example, the Barret that yells "si' down and shu' up!" is the one that made me go 'Whoa, this isn't like games I've played before! This has personality!', as opposed to 'Be cool' *flicks sunglasses*, which was tired, even in 1997. Same thing with "Don't say such things!" vs. "Stop being a retard and CLIMB!!". I get how those things wouldn't have carried over into Japanese, likely (just as many of the things that didn't make it over were probably deemed into the same category, often incorrectly) but I like them as interpretations. Regardless, as a 'version history', this is something really magical, and the video creator is a talented individual. Keep it up.

Tim, another excellent video. Especially loved what Aerith said about comforting Barret, and the segment on Dio.

To echo this sentiment, the original script has a lot of problems. Clearly. There's enough issues to make an entire video series out of it. That, however, didn't stop it from successfully conveying a story that has captivated us for 20+ years. So it must be doing SOMETHING right.

I find this very interesting.

To Tim: Please keep up the videos. I'd donate to you on Patreon if I could!

God I love this series just the most. It's the exact perfect balance of information and humour.

I legitimately did not stop laughing from start to finish, I've been slain by this series. It's too good.

so i came across this video today and was immediately "triggered", to quote the user literally. however, when he referred to the translation video series, i remember seeing that already, and i don't remember anything like that being said in the video. or, maybe it's just because i don't remember. either way, i'm confused....:T
