In the premier episode, Cloud teams up with Barret and the rest of Avalanche to take on one of the many factories owned by the evil Shinra Corporation. But does Cloud know what he’s getting himself into?

FF7 came out in 1997 on the Sony Playstation and has since been a main stay to the series for fans all over the world. Join Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, Barret & Red XIII in this new TeamFourStar abridged series!

    XDDDDDDD

    “Those are Squalls, and no one likes those.” I just died. Oh God, that was fabulous.

  • darkwraith007

    I’m going to say this as a non-fan of FF7.
    First, who thought doing yet another show about FF7 would be a good idea, especially with sue-happy Squeenix?
    Secondly, this show isn’t funny at all. Maybe I am completely spoiled by the quality of the jokes in DBZ Abridged but this series is very BLEH by comparison. It is like some half-assed budget B-list people are getting paid to NOT be funny.

    Is this honestly the BEST that TFS can do with $12k+ USD a month!? Really!?
    What a waste. If you can do something for another Final Fantasy (1 through 6; 12, maybe even some FFonline stuff) then I’d chuckle a bit harder; maybe.

    And please fire the idiot that writes these jokes/lines. They are terrible at comedy. The voice ‘actors’ were ok (even calling them that is a bit of a stretch) but mundane/generic. Nothing special. Even Barret’s acting was barely passable and lazy.

    Just ‘sayin’ 😛

    • Ivannacookie

      That is an opinion you are having 😉

      • LusterWolf

        Recoome agrees

    • Heather_Feathersong

      Sooooo you want them to fire Takahata101 and Antfish? As it says in the description “Written/Produced/Directed By: Takahata101 and Antfish”.

      Yeah I don’t think they are going to do that…considering Taka is kind of well important to all of Teamfourstar and Antfish is pretty set in his roles. So yeah, you may want to read the description next time bub.

    • Zephyn

      Have you considered that the show may not be for you? Maybe you just aren’t interested in what it has to offer.

      Just saiyan.

  • Rubyweapon14

    This is great!! I have watched plenty of abridged. Including FF7. Just this one video is enough to get me hooked. Keep up the good work.

  • GoodBeatle

    Aaaaaaand it’s grown on me. The pacing’s fast. Period. But once you get used to it, the writing, the acting and the editing are all well executed. I’m cool with which direction they’ve chosen to take the content. Love what they did with Tifa! (Ep. 2, mind)

    Happy to see more. Two thumbs up, Taka/Ant/Masako/et al.

    ps. how is FFVIIA being released? Bi-weekly? Monthly?

  • Chaosticket

    Very funny but thanks for informing me they are remaking another classic game.

    Ten years ago I would have said updating FF7 was a great idea with improved graphics and voice acting on the Playstation 2. Now I just think theyre trying to get more money out of a classic game as they realize all the “final” Fantasy games afterwards are actually worse.

    I really just feel like a hipster.

  • I don’t get why they are so mean to Cloud he is the reason why they are still alive
    Was fun

    • Super Human

      Because it’s funny to see Cloud and Barret suffer.

  • Wubba lubba dub dub

    Im so excited for this series, ff vii is easily in my top 10 all time favorite games can’t wait to see how cloud handles being a clone…

  • Amara

    That was fantastic. Love the poke at Squal, and I am seriously looking forward to the future references in these episodes. 😀

  • drac0nisw0lf

    I want to do the voice for Vincent Valentine!

  • LSKG

    i seriously can;t believe they passed up this gold joke
    barratte: have you EVER had an angry 6 foot tall black man inside you
    cloud: oh fuck rape RAPE RAPERAPERAPE
    barratte: to late now bitch, and once you go black you don’t go back
    cloud: well it can’t get any worse
    barratte: oh just wait I’m going to invite all our friend in here for an orgy just you wait

    the joke then get repeated everytime this happens with could just being disgusted by the off screen sex acts going on inside his body

    • darkwraith007

      There were many jokes that could’ve been done instead but weren’t done.
      Some random ideas I just came up with that would’ve made this better:
      -Barret in Mr.T voice & mannerisms
      -Cloud as more serious while the others poke fun at him to lighten up
      -Getting rid of that stupid ass ‘bad dental’ joke; that really wasn’t funny at all…did anyone think that was funny?
      -Instead of using that half-assed dental crap as an excuse not to get a female to voice Jessie (why not!?) how about using some of that Patreon money to do so and give her some lines; maybe make her either a ‘ditzy girl’ or a ‘shy girl’. Whatever..something.
      -You need to have someone make fat jokes at the short fat guy’s expense when he cries about his ass on fire…golden opportunity MISSED!

  • Kaliaila

    This first episode was amazing. It was funny, the characterizations were funny but still fit with how they actually were in the game(s).

    I loved the Squall joke.

  • Deepbluerei

    When this was announced I was confused at first on how it could be done. But you guys yet again have shown real love for a classic part of our childhoods. Thank you so much for continuing to peruse your dreams into our realities!
    TFS you guys and gals are a great example of how fandom is an action not just a feeling. I would hope i speak for the majority in that we cant thank you enough.

    and for the obligatory quote: PECKING ORDER!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks and keep crushing it TFS

  • NCHaskew

    …..I feel like I should know things about Final Fantasy to get the humor o.O

    • Kaliaila

      No, in general you do not need to know anything about FF to get the humor.

      However there was one joke, a rather good one, that you need to have knowledge of other final fantasy games to get. That would be the Squall reference; Squall was the protagonist of Final Fantasy 8 who was always depressed and most players of the day didn’t like him.

  • pbxellos

    this was great, please do the whole game through.

    • Kaliaila

      They already have the first 10 episodes done, assuming that nothing has changed since the series was originally announced back in June. I have no idea how far into the game that will be going though.

  • android19

    🙂

  • The Urmician

    The first game load having 9001 Gil, Trollolol!

  • SuperKamiGuru

    It was all i wanted to be and more … love it guys …. love it … everyones performance was amzing but i have to give special praise to antfish !!! you were above and beyond man 😀 laughed through everyone one of your lines !

  • Tri-Blade

    1:52
    Barret: “Cloud…is that because you rain on everybody’s parade?”
    Cloud: “No, those are Squalls…and nobody likes those”

    I see what you did there! Nice Squall Leonhart joke! Way to roast that guy.

    5:53
    Cloud: “Wow, who would have thought Lightning would hurt a robot?”
    Barret: “ANYONE! Everyone would think to do that!”

    Was that an intentional or unintentional Lightning Farron and Fal’cie joke there? I will pretend it was either way

  • thewanderinghero

    I gotta admit I had a lot of laughs watching this. Great job on the first episode guys!

  • Mandalf The Beige

    😀

  • Flamemaster9

    Oh man this is great I’m really looking forward to watching the rest of this series.

  • Hermit_Priest1334

    Well, this was not what I expecting, I though you guys were gonna make a fully animated series but no, this is better.

  • Randomkai

    I’m really pleased to see you guys branching out and flourishing. I’m looking forward to the day you guys get to make your very own shows and games. Stay golden TFS!

  • raeror
