jdkTV Episode 18 Now Available on NicoDouga


Episode 18 of jdkTV features part of the talk show with Toshiharu Okajima and Toshihiro Kondo during the Falcom Exhibit that took place during September.

Okaji and Kondo pour over a chronological list of games released by Falcom with many anecdotes for in-company development. One of the things that Kondo points out that Ys I Eternal is a turning point game for the company. Many of the games that preceded it were enjoyed, even by the staff, as players of the games. And those earlier games ended up influencing the development of the games that have been made from Ys I Eternal and onwards.

There are a lot of interesting comments made regarding the company’s history- such as the debate between making a new Ys title (which would become Ys VI), or making Ys III Eternal- or Kondo’s first Falcom title. There’s talk about Xanadu Next and the effect that Sora no Kiseki FC had on the company, as well.

The interview is cut short, however, with a promise that it will be to be continued in the next jdkTV episode. So stay tuned!


The end of the video is marked with a short excerpt from one of the Falcom jdk Live & Talk Show events on 9/27, with the band playing an acoustic version of Fate of the Fairies from Sora no Kiseki SC. (Despite the mislabeling on the video?)

Various Sen no Kiseki II Videos Edited and Translated/Subbed


We’ve had a bombardment of videos for Sen no Kiseki II in the past few weeks. Through the help of FalcomJDKSound, Ayu Ohseki, and @YotakaofALOY, I have a collection of three of them below all in one post for your viewing pleasure.

The first video is from FalcomJDKSound on youtube, using a translation by Ayu Ohseki, the video has been ‘karaoke’ized’ for any of you interested in singing along. The lyrics in both Japanese and English are found on the video.

These next two videos contain spoilers!

The first of the two videos from @YotakaofALOY is a subtitled version of the store trailer that’s been wandering around for awhile:

And last but not least, Yotaka’s latest subbed video- the official demo movie from Falcom themselves!
