Fascinating. So is the “original” version of this episode different in only audio, or have there been video edits as well?
From what I’ve gathered, not only is the script and performances different, but the episode is in the original Japanese order (flashbacks throughout) instead of how the official release does it (all but one flashback crammed into the first few minutes). So presumably this older version is the more faithful to the Japanese. If you check out the clip, you’ll see that, like the Japanese version, Snowene continues to speak over Kimba’s swimming in the ocean, while she stops after a few lines in the more common version.
