Final Fantasy A+

Author Comments

I submitted this as my final in high school for Japanese, so all the voices are done by me. To all you native speakers - please excuse my awkward intonations. :)

Music from FFV and FFT, sound effects from various Genesis games.

P.S - Sorry, I don't intend to make this into a series. I'd rather not continue something I feel is complete.
Also, for those of you interested, Pensuke's victory cheer is "Yahho, watashi wa kattaze~!"

FAQ's:

1) What grade did you get for this?
- I recieved maximum credit for the final and aced the class.

2) How long did this take you?
- The project took about 2-3 weeks, with breaks only for eating, sleeping, and school, so it was actually a good many hours. I actually couldn't finish by the end of the semester, and had to get a deadline extension.

3) How did you do all those voices?
- Sound Forge was used to alter some of the voices. There is no way I could make my voice as low as Ramuh's or as warbly as Cid's. Others like Ryu-sensei's were attained through raw, painful effort.

4) What kind of class makes you do these things for a final?!
- The original assignment was to present an oral autobiography. I requested special permission to make a movie. My teacher isn't anything like the one depicted in this title - she's actually a good-natured woman.

5) Will you make a game of this?
- I might. It's looking pretty bleak, though. If I do produce one, it'd probably be in the fashion of FF Tactics (or FFV) and follow Pensuke to Sabaku University. Go Sabotenders~!

6) Why don't you make a sequel of this?
- I've seen enough titles go bad because the producers made sequels to please the crowd. Games, on the other hand, are a different story.

7) Can you teach me Japanese?
- Nope; I'm a student, not a teacher. If you're desperate enough, you can try looking for free online lessons or something. They're bound to be there.

Wow!

This is the best I've seen in a long time. The style.. the animation.. the sounds.. thanks for the subtitling by the way! Wow! Overall, insanely great job! This should be up there in the Top 3 in the portal!



haha

Awsome Style and Voice acting!
this is great.



Ha ha Sweet

Most enjoyable flash I've seen in a long time. Purly origial. Everything is so anime. I'll be damned if this doesn't go straight to the front page.



Ridiculously cool

Holy crap, where to start...

First, I can't believe you did all this for a high school final. Talk about going above and beyond.

Next, your Japanese was dead-on. I'm not a native speaker, but everything sounded correct. Translations were done excellently too, but they should be, since you made it :) I'm impressed at how well you speak Japanese for being in high school. There are people in my 3rd semester course here at college who would have been lost.

I really enjoyed the couple little things that you had to know some Japanese for -- Shiken as the one boss plus the double meaning between the name and kanji, the Mahou eraser ... :)

Also, the sounds and music are done excellently, as are the voices. The animations are a lot better than so many of the entries here, too.

My -only- gripe would be to add a restart button at the end, rather than having it automatically restart, and maybe have a preloading screen leading up to the start/continue screen, where you have some "I'd rather start my save game" message if you click on the start button rather than the continue button. But these don't take away from the enjoyment of the movie at all.

The bottom line is that this is an absolutely awesome movie. Great work!

Thanks for noticing the Shiken pun! I'm really proud of that one. I actually don't plan on altering the beginning, 'cause that's the way it was made for presentation (originally it was exported as an .avi file on CD). But I did make a preloader. Maybe I'll put scene selection into there, even though it might seem more clever to put it in as save slots.


that was great

very funny satire. great idea and animation. ggod storyline. nice work i enjoyed it.
