So, no idea if this goes here, but a friend brought this to my attention. TeamFourStar the same people who made DragonBall Z Abridged. Have made a dub also, but of FFVII.

To be honest, yeah that part made me uncomfortable. They dog on Cloud pretty hard too.

But Barret is hilarious. There were a good amount of parts I just laughed out loud. Whoever is doing him, somebody give that man a cookie.

And that intro hits the feels.

The only part I found funny was Marlene's scene.

Guy: "Hey, aren't you a little young to be running a bar?"
Marlene: *gun clicks* Aren't you a little old to be asking stupid questions?

I actually really want to wait to see how they do Aerith's character before I stop watching though. Also, they bash Cloud and Tifa's relationship pretty hard though. xD

Well...

Tifa: Cloud, Cloud, look at me. Who am I?

Also the beginning of Ep 3 really nails it.

Cloud: *talking to himself* All right, Cloud. Now I know the last 24 hours of your life have been pretty...abysmal. But you know what? That's what you get for hanging out with Tifa. We just can't seem to learn our lesson with her. I mean, Remember the first time we met her?

*Flash back at the water tower promise scene*

Tifa: Hi, I'm Tifa. Wanna do me a solid?
Cloud: You're eyes are pretty.

*present scene*

Cloud: Curse you! 12 year old Cloud. You know damn well you weren't looking at her eyes.

Also the ending scene of Ep. 3.

Cloud: Hey, Tifa, wanna do me a solid? AND GO #*@$% YOURSELF!!!

It's not funny, but they are basically just spoofing the whole game like it was.

Episode 4 is up. Aerith is portrayed as a yandere (overly attached girlfriend/dangerous stalker playing cute). So yeah, I don't think they're picking sides here. They're bashing both pairings (and girls) and doing whatever they want with the characterizations.

Youtube comments are basically like :

- "you changed Tifa but you made Aerith the exact same as she is in game"... implying that Aerith was an overly cutesy psycho in canon (many Aerith haters in the comments)
- "you made me actually like/care for Aerith, she's too cute"... implying canon Aerith was either horrible or bland in canon.
- "you made me hate Aerith more than I previously did/you made her more annoying than her canon self, congrats"... haters, yeah.

Meanwhile, in the previous videos, people are throwing pitchforks at TFS for calling Tifa a liar (and making her... I have to be honest... really OOC... Tifa is no tsundere in canon... sure, she was passive agressive at times but overall, she acted friendly and supportive... BUT she was a coward who messed up big time by lying to Cloud... this is the only thing that TFS kept accurate about Tifa's character, the liar part).

I guess what annoys me about this is that anytime Tifa/Cloti gets some criticism, even if it's for humor sake... fanboys/girls get angry. Aerith/Clerith gets bashed (while Cloti/Tifa gets glorified) ? People cheers and go along.

I've only watch the first 4 parts but so far I'm enjoying it and taking everything it with a grain of salt. It's all done for humor's sake, so I take it for what it is and roll with the punches.

Having said that I should also mention I completely ignore the comment section for the simple fact to avoid Clotis who take this joke a little too seriously and start to use it as proof for their dumb cause. You know there are bound to be some in the comments, "Oh, Aerith is a crazy-yandere? I knew it! That's why Tifa is better teeheehee." I care hear them now. I really don't fell like harshing my vibe.

I watched this and I actually thought it was hilarious, they ended it when they left midgar. I don't think it's been picked up back again.

I didn't really see Aerith as a yandere she was more like a ditzy airhead, and Tifa was a complete bitch who just gets Cloud in trouble.

My favorite part was Cloud letting Tifa have it at the end for being such a bitch. And every time Barret opened his mouth, he's hilarious.

Oh, I think they totally set her to be a yandere type character who will reveal her "dark side" more as the story progresses :

- "Oh, your friend is... a girl. How quaint." -pause- "Let's go meet her !"
- Aerith's "evil" face at the end of the last episode (you know, the character portraits)
- Barret to Aerith and Nanaki : "Neither of you is as dumb as you led on to be."
- Cloud : "I have a proposal !" Aerith :" :woot: !" Cloud : "I say we go find Sephiroth..." Aerith : "Oh..."
- Aerith : "Follow... the blood..."... what Aerith says in general in the cell seems a bit creepy...

I think this parody is setting up Aerith as a yandere who plays dumb and cute (and who Cloud presently favors) and Tifa as a bitch/tsundere (like, she treats Cloud like crap but deep down "she cares") la Haruhi Suzumiya (who Cloud might go with at the end of the parody... willingly or under pressure, I dunno). Ahhh... it all reminds me how much I grew to hate Haruhi Suzumiya and Haruhi/Kyon. Kyon/Mikuru or Kyon/Yuki all the way.

As a side note, Nanaki makes me laugh hard in this parody (even if his personality was drastically changed for humor reasons, like Tifa's... to be honest, all the characters got some personality changes... some more than others). Barret isn't bad either.

If they did they did it pretty well, but my yandere radar is bad, I actually really liked Sengoku Nadeko from Bakemonogatari and she ended up being one of the worst yanderes. I wonder if they can even go that route though considering Aerith dies. If they do go that route how will they play that? and I don't even know if they're going to continue it at all.


I really did like that they kept the flirting at the holding cells though. :P

And I hated the Haruhi series as a whole, but I agree that Kyon was best with Mikuru.

It's back !!

Episode 11

Lol at some of the comments... "why aren't Cloud and Tifa more romancey ?... oh maybe in the ferrywheel episode" ... yeah, sure... I think TFS will run the clerith highway for most of disc 1 at the very least. Cloud is showing regular anger/snark towards Tifa and romancey sweetness towards Aerith right about now.

Mixed feelings. It's hilarious, but I'm getting the feeling it's going to turn Cloti later on, what with how they reference the HAHW scene. It's also definitely not Clerith. Everyone only ever talks down to her, and there's no sense that Cloud is attracted to her at all. Also, it bothers me how they made Aerith the jealous one in this (even though Tifa is the otherwise bitchy character here).

It's definitely funny though, Barret especially.

While I have no doubt it will get more cloti friendly later on, I don't see how Cloud shows no interest in Aerith. He talks to her in a sweet smitten way... which he doesn't do with bitchy Tifa.
I agree about jealousAerith though... and that's because they probably set her up as the yandere character (cutesy on the outside, creepy stalker on the inside).
I guess I understand your mixed feelings, in a way. But at least, Cloud shows sweetness towards Aerith. In another popular fanmade parody, he was portrayed as "hating" Aerith (or at least being often annoyed with her and having to suffer her flirting attempts... in TFS version, it's Tifa who gets snarled at) and being heavily and uniquely into Tifa. To the point of inserting gratuitous new fanon cloti scenes and erasing/downplaying Clerith canon ones (and of course, the date scene was cloti... and made more "romantic" than the actual cloti date variant from the game).

Edit : Episode 12 is up ! And same thing really. Cloud and Aerith flirt. Cloud and Tifa argue. Tifa is pissed. Aerith/Tifa rivalry. This is probably how things are going to be for the entirety of disc 1 content.

I really don't care about what way it leans for the LTD, it's god damn hilarious and honestly, I wish Tifa was like this.... I'd ship cloti if she was this fleshed out. That said, I really feel like the creator IS making Cloud like Aerith (just in a ditsy way).

In Ep. 16 they made it Cloud/Aerith to meet Cait Sith and look what the guy made happen:

Aerith: "Will I always be remembered?"

Cait Sith: "Trust me honey, you're FARRR too important to ever be forgotten. ......Attention audience members will this girly be remembered?"



In that same episode, they switched it from Aerith upsetting Barret, to it being Cloud that upset him. So clearly the person has a bias for Aerith and didn't want viewers to attack her.


But what was the Highwind scene reference you speak of, Kura?
