Video clip of the Dishonor cut scene!

Hey, everyone! I’m excited to offer you something the web has never seen before (as far as I know). 🙂

So I mentioned that I left my English-language Dark Water DVD rips at home. However, I discovered the Japanese Dark Water DVD rip on my hard drive! Which happens to include that one very insightful cut scene from episode 2!

The original file and one with English subtitles are now available for download (and the English subtitled one is on YouTube). They’re Quicktime .mov files.

The subtitles are actually the original English dialogue, as opposed to translations of the Japanese. (Why translate a translation, right?) It’s probably useful to know, though, that while the Japanese dialogue is a solid translation of the English, there are differences. I will edit this with a faithful translation of the Japanese, once I clarify some points. The translation follows after the jump.

(In hindsight, perhaps I should have made a standalone subtitle text file. If you’d really like one, to subtitle this file in other languages, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.)

Here’s a translation of the Japanese dialogue (tweaked to make for non-awkward English):

Blonde Lugg Brother: Hey, Konk, can’t we return to [the boss’s place]? (hard to think of good English for that)
Konk: How the hell can we return? Are you okay with our ship being damaged by that kid?
Blonde Lugg Brother: Well, no, but…
Konk: Let’s go to Janda Town, and wait for boss Bloth there.
Lugg Brothers: Janda Town? Awesome!
Konk: *grimacing* Idiots. (Nice add-in that wasn’t in the English version!)

Bloth: You guys, ramp up the speed! You let them get away!

Ren: Ioz, Tula! Keep us going at full speed! We’ll definitely get the treasure back.
Ioz: Ren, we…er…
Niddler: Go ahead, say it already!
Tula: We just wanted to thank you for sticking up for us before.
Ioz: Yeah, exactly! Thanks, man. You seem to not have the greatest luck, but at root you’re a good guy.
Ren: I’ll take that as a compliment because I don’t want to fight. — Tula, what were you trying to do with those maps? You could have been killed.
Tula: There are some things more important than my life.
Ren: Tula’s hiding something, but I don’t know what. If I can’t even keep my allies in order/in line, can I really find the Treasures of Rule?
Niddler: Don’t think like that! Just two days ago you were still a lighthouse keeper.
Ren: Ioz is just after treasure, and Tula’s keeping secrets. It may end up being just you and me.
Ioz: If the wind keeps up like this, we’ll catch up to that bastard Konk’s ship by daybreak!
Ren: If it’s going to be like this, maybe I should have just remained a lighthouse keeper.

  • Thanks for the video clip. I use to wonder about that episode too. On another note, I just finally got around to seeing Le tourbillon noir – the french opening. I don’t know why it took me so long for me to see it. But if I remember it right, I think I saw that clip in 1989. I honestly think this show started a lot earlier than people realize.

  • Actually, it is indeed from 1991-93. 🙂 A lot of people like to lump it in with the 80s since a lot of the other nostalgic action-adventure shows came out then, but this did come out a little later.

    If you’d like proof, check the end credits for the early episodes–there’s a copyright date of 1991. IMDb and confirm it, too, and some of the behind-the-scenes/planning documentation that’s up on the site is dated to 1990 (the Series Bible, for example).

  • Thanks for video. Where anything can download all the episodes in Japanese?
