  • Charon

    I could actually believe someone laughing that hard after hearing that story despite everyone they know being crushed by a part of the city. That shit was hilarious.

  • Sumner

    I freaking love this series!

  • TheGreatMoof

    Oh man. That final bit killed me so hard that I had to register so I could leave a comment letting you guys know that I freaking love this series.

  • KigaiOkasu

    What makes the story even funnier, Barret, is that Tifa showed more skin, had the bigger chest, and demonstrated a sultrier attitude, and she LOST to Cloud!

  • Eight-Bomb

    So does this mean that Lani is gonna be playing Cait Sith? If so then I wonder how his gonna make him sound? Also I can’t wait to see who’s gonna play Yuffie, Cid , Vincent and most importantly Sephiroth!

  • GreatWyrmGold

    Shrinra’s plan is like making an omelette by blowing up your house, but it gets mostly cooked by the time you finish setting up the bomb.

  • xedalpha

    Is…is Alan Rickman leader of the Turks?

    • Vlossy

      Oh, my God, I thought the EXACT SAME THING!!

    • gboy193

      Yeah, I think Kaiser was really trying to channel him.

    • argentlupus

      Have to admit, when you think about it, Tseng does have a whole Hans Gruber thing going on.

    • TheGreatEscapist

      Oh, wow! I see what you mean! 8D
      At first I thought “Tim Curry”, but, yeah, I definitely hear Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber in that voice. It reminds me of Maurice LaMarche’s take on Hans Gruber on “The Critic”.

      “One more step and the Red Balloon becomes the ‘Dead Balloon’.”

  • Tassit

    “You’re the scum of the Earth, Tifa.”

    Got a good laugh out of that, haha!

    • Len

      I keep hearing “Salt of the Earth” myself (which is just as vicious an insult, especially within the context of this game’s plot) no matter how many times I listen to that line.

    • GoodBeatle

      “Salt of the Earth.” And heejh bein ironic.

    • Jeisus

      It was “Way to settle the earth, Tifa”.
      But Barret’s laugh… OMG. That sh** was hilarious. I chuckled right before he started giggling at the name “Thunderhead”, and then went full blown laughing along with him – because of him. This was a good episode.

      • GoodBeatle

        “You’re the salt of the Earth, Tifa.” Give props to the writing prowess of TFS. Also give the episode another listen XD

        Forgot to mention earlier, props to you guys, Taka and Antfish, ’cause you didn’t steamroll over Barrett’s “I just lost all my friends and livelihood” moment with pure slapstick comedy. It was very well balanced and leaves the next episode open for whatever you have (had) in mind. Love you guys.

        *Also Taka I live in Vancouver hit me up* XDDDDD

  • Chen

    And now i wonder : Why dont they just frame Avalange for destroying sector 7?

    • GoodBeatle

      In the game Shinra has no real reason to destroy Sector 7. They’re only ever after those responsible for blowing up the mako reactors. So it isn’t frame Avalanche to bring down S7, it’s bring down S7 to destroy Avalanche.

      Could’ve just sent in a hit squad if you ask me. But I loved this when I saw it for the first time, in a horrified kind of way.

    • GoodBeatle

      haha, cancel what I just said. Re-read you’re comment and yeah, actually, that’s a good point. I made a mistake when I read your comment the first time. derp

    • aphexLlama

      They did.

  • android19

    As per usual of this series, better than the previous episode. Which, by now, makes this a pretty darn good episode.

  • wL alucard

    That fucking ending lol. Wow, these keep getting better and better. Easily BY FAR the best episode of this show you guys have managed. Keep up the good work.

  • Justin Time

    … God I wish I could be part of this. Voice actor’s dream. @[email protected]

    • Angel-of-Light-Kelly

      I agree. I always dreamed of voice acting.

  • Yusagi

    This was an excellent episode, and man Kaiser did awesome. I did not recognize him at all. Lani as Reeve is also an awesome choice. Considering his role in things, it sounds very fitting. (Then again, I’ve never even seen DoC in English, so maybe they were just going with what Reeve actually does sound like)

  • iiiii actually agree with Roknicus, partially. this is the best episode so far, period. there are definitely times when you guys could skips chunks of gameplay, but this episode felt like a good balance of skipping stuff and sticking to the storyline. but still, nothing about the first enemy skill materia in the sewer? really? that seems like a gold mine, but it doesn’t look like you guys are going to mention materia… which kinda sucks because it ties directly into the story later on, and not just with the black materia. lemme guess, you guys were going to wait until yuffie shows up and steals it, then cloud was gonna ask “what’s materia?” granted, that would be kinda funny.

  • hunter24

    “I would pay good money to see you in a dress.” “Kill him before he talks more!!!”

    I have not laughed that hard in a long time! These episodes just keep getting better and better! I can’t wait to see the Red XIII introduction. Thank you guys so much for these!

    • jpic89

      Taka always voices the best characters.

  • She is just jealous that she was not chosen

  • This was great
    Cloud really needs to stop caring about this assholes
    I never played this game but i known about it but still wow so many people actually died FF is awesome

  • Tolvan

    First Cloud gets added to Smash Bros, then we get another FF7 Machinimabridged. Awesome.

    Y’know, I can’t help but feel that this series will really hit its stride in the next episode or two. After all, the game itself does.

    • Tassit

      Wait.. He got added?

  • Roknikus

    …. Still waiting on that new Hellsing Abridged episode. I kid, I kid. (I’m well aware that this show doesn’t impact the other stuff, and I’ll gladly wait as long as necessary for next Hellsing because I prefer quality over timeliness or quantity) This is probably my favorite episode of this FF7 Abridged series that TFS has done so far. At first I didn’t think they were too funny, but they’ve improved for sure. Now I’m concerned that I need to finish FF7 (I have the Steam version) before these episodes catch up to where I’m at so that I don’t miss any of the “references.”

    • LSKG

      tfs made a youtube video announcing they are not doing it a couple weeks ago.
      before you get mad
      they also announced they are moving up production on hellsing and will no be doing two whole episodes a year instead of just one, thats nearly doubly their original output. WOW.
      so the next hellsing will be a couple months out at least.

      • android19

        they said they’re gonna try to have it done in December.

  • NinaMina05

    All I hear is Lisbeth…..

    • Len

      I hear Lisbeth mixed with Nonon whenever I hear Sarah’s Tifa. The perfect pitch between sassy and bitchy. Speaking of, Tifa owned this episode (and Reno’s now non-existent balls).

      • android19

        I hear Peacock all grown up. It’s… it’s beautiful.

  • Wickian

    I can’t wait to see how they go through the Shinra facility. There are so many items you can waste time trying to get and different paths to take.

    Also those stairs. I HATED those stairs.

    • tidus_mi2

      I’d like to imagine there will be this men vs women thing, Cloud and Barrett will go in and fuck up Shinra from the entrance while Tifa will stealthy climb the stairs calling them idiots and how they’re probably dead, only to get super frustrated to see them alive and dead bodies strewn everywhere.

  • SovereignGod

    Has anyone notice the fact that cloud never told Barrett’s daughter is now With the possible slut mother or was drug dealer mother? I don’t know.

  • DreamDesire

    Forevermore known as thunder head

    • RavenScales

      Yo, just so you know…
      That phrase goes well with the FFVII Victory theme.

      Go ahead, try it out!

  • JetZV

    This. Cloud in Smash 4. Same day. WHAT.

  • Marcus of Terra

    What was Cloud’s last line: “You’re the salt of the Earth, Tifa.”??

    Also, the only way Barrett was going to laugh again was bringing up Cloudia… I mean Thunder-head.

    • janeDoe001

      Actually, I think it was “You’re the scum of the earth, Tifa.”


      • Nojical

        Nah, I heard “salt” too.

  • squittyrulesall

    First I’d like to thank you for all of the hard work you’ve put into making these and your other abridged series. You’ve brought me hours of lols and I don’t know if you read this, but thank you because mostly my life kind of sucks :-P. My only advice is that this episode was really jumpy. The action kept jumping from scene to scene without anything connecting it. Around the middle of the episode it felt more like a funny clip show rather than an abridged series. I don’t know if you have the editing finished or if my opinion matters all that much but for what it’s worth there it is. Other than that I really enjoy these episodes. I cannot wait until the first appearance of Sephiroth.

  • raff365

    How does Team FourStar feel about Cloud Strife’s recent addition to the Smash 4 roster?

  • Saiyajima

    Hey, just a quick question. When is the next episode of Hellsing Ultimate coming out? Are you guys still doing it? It be nice to have a section where you just post updates on them because some people don’t have Facebook. You guys still rock! If appreciate the response. Thanks again! Keep being awesome!

    • bneil24

      they seid some time in december for hellsing ultamte it was a vido on there youtube account

      • Saiyajima

        Hey thanks! I appreciate the response XD Now I don’t feel like a big dummy anymore stalking the website everyday

  • xBigZx

    barrett’s laugh is too funny. completely lost it

  • been lookin’ forward to this for a while

  • MalkavianRP

    loved it

  • NCHaskew

    Whoa. Is it weird that it was weird for me to hear Kaiser and Lani in this? It just took me by surprise xD especially ’cause Lani was just doing basically his regular voice. Huh


    • lukeyq

      Definitely heard Lani. I didn’t notice Kaiser. If the voice fits thats fine though, Kaiser’s trunks is pretty close to his own voice and it is perfect

      • KaiserNeko

        I play Tseng!

  • arykon

    Great Episode!
