Dojo contributor Switch has translated a old article about the AM2 Summer Festival from 2001 and a Shenmue movie extra that features Japanese voice actors Masaya Matsukaze (Ryo) & Takumi Hagiwara (Ren).

Nice catch! Didn't notice until you pointed it out.

Interested to know if people find the video amusing, or too over the top?

Good job, as always, Switch-san! Those fast nonsense conversations must have given you headaches.
It's a shame they wrote "2000" instead of "2001" as the year. Also, I wonder why Dou Niu's narration which was heard at the event had been removed from the final product. :???:

Anyway, that slapstick video gave the audience an explosive laugh at the festival. Good old days...

I can imagine how fun it must have been to watch it at the event. The energy and craziness of the video is great, and the two actors really have a good rapport. My favorite part is where Ren at last gets fed up and storms off the screen, only to change his mind and come back again to continue.

So the year "2000" was just a pure mistake, wasn't it - seems like it would have been easy to notice though. And I had been wondering about why Dou Niu was given credit in the video - so he did some live narration at the event? I thought he might perhaps have been the voice of the interviewer or something as well.

And thank you for your help in getting those names correct in the credits section!

It really was fun. They could succeed as a "Manzai (comic dialogist) duo," don't you think? :lol:

Indeed. They must have been so rushed and didn't take much time to proofread, I guess.

As you see, his name appears on the same screen with "First, please view this" caption, right after the introduction. I believe he started giving narration there. I don't remember how often he narrated in the video unfortunately, as the event was the only chance when I heard his narration. The interviewer should be Hagiwara-san, though he may sound a bit different; too serious for him.

It's my pleasure to help with your devoted work. Thank you for your immediate correction!
