Exclusive canon back story for Kingdom Hearts III shown at Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - in Japan

Recommended Posts

During the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - in Japan, the Japanese voice actress of Kairi and Xion, Risa Uchida, came onstage and performed lines. The Japanese voice actress for Aqua, Megumi Toyoguchi, later came onstage and performed some lines as well. These lines are canon to the story of Kingdom Hearts and explain some back story for Kingdom Hearts III.

 

You can view the translated Kairi lines thanks to @momo_krys on Twitter below:

Kairi:

 

I didn't notify you but you might've already heard from Yen Sid-sama.

I've come to train to become a Keyblade wielder.

Until now, I've only been waiting for you guys to come back from your journey.

Maybe with this I can at least help out a little.

 

The magician Merlin-sama can use magic that surpasses time.

Here, we can forget about the flow of time.

Isn't it great?

 

Lea's training with me.

He apologized to me over and over again.

It's alright,

I'd say,

But he'd keep on apologizing...

 

At first I was a bit scared but

As we trained together we started talking to each other.

I found out Lea also has a best friend he wants to save.

I felt like, he's not a person that I can bring myself to hate...

 

Sometimes..... He'd stare at my face

So I'd ask him, what's wrong?

"I don't know, but I feel like it's something I must recall", He'd say...

 

Your journey is a journey that will help many people

and the people you'll meet from now on

I have a feeling these people you meet will also need your help

 

The journey might be hard but

Please stay as the cheerful and bright Sora I know

Because your smile, will save many hearts.....

 

*end*

You can view the translated Xion lines thanks to @momo_krys on Twitter below:

Xion:

 

On the day you first called my name

It made me feel like I had a heart

If I hadn't met the two of you

I wonder how my "everyday" would've been.

 

Day by day, repeating the days which were the same as every other,

Even so,

The red, setting sun,

The taste of ice cream.

Those days when nothing happened were the most precious to me

 

All of it is my treasure.

 

Thank you for calling out my name.

Thank you for inviting me to the clocktower.

Thank you for picking up shells for me.

Thank you for coming to bring me back.

Thank you for letting me be your friend.

 

I wish... those same old days could have continued on longer....

 

We wanted to go to the sea....

 

*end*

@momo_krys hasn't translated Aqua's lines, but he says they were pretty much something like "Ven, Terra, become the light that will guide me through the darkness!" He says that it was essentially just her saying that she wanted Ventus and Terra to guide her in her darkness and to become the light that shines her path.

 

If you didn't know, last year during the Kingdom Hearts Concert - First Breath - in Japan, a similar situation to this happened. The Japanese voice actor of Terra and the Japanese voice actress of Naminé came onstage and performed some canon lines for Terra and Naminé. You can view those lines here.

 

UPDATE 1: View images of Kairi and Xion's voice actress, Risa Uchida, and Aqua's Japanese voice actress, Megumi Toyoguchi, performing their lines thanks to Game Watch below:

UPDATE 2: For all the other orchestras around the world, they played recordings of these voices with English subtitles. The recording of Kairi's voice played while Dearly Beloved played, the recording of Xion's voice played while Vector to the Heavens played, and the recording of Aqua's voice played while Wave of Darkness played.

 

UPDATE 3: After performing at the final Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - in Osaka, Japan, Risa Uchida expressed her feeling of gratitude on Twitter and provided a couple photos of herself at the event.

Is this only exclusive to japan or will it be shown at all of the concerts?

 

That's currently completely unknown. Don't expect anything though unless it gets confirmed.

 

EDIT: The recordings of the voices are shown at the other concerts with English subtitles, instead of the voice actors performing.

Alright I really loved the Kairi one I just new that Lea would apologize for what he did lol.  I do have to say that this really sucks for like everyone else since I'm guessing just like the one they did at the first breath concert with Terra and Namine these won't be in Kingdom Hearts 3 or anywhere else besides the concert here which again just sucks.  And the fact that this won't be at all of the concert makes it suck even more

Wow. On the plus side, it's nice to see how Kairi is regarding the training and to actually hear her talk to Sora again. Still, the idea that the other concerts might not get something like this bugs me. Unless each one get's its own thing, but I'm not sure if they'd be able to grab a hold of the English voice actors for any lines they could give. Guess we'll have to see how they handle the other concerts.

I whole-heartedly agree with you there. I don't mind that they got something which others may not receive but rather that some concert goers might not receive anything special at all... I'll still enjoy the concert of course, but I guess it would be a bit disappointing in comparison.

 

But I also get why. KH did not receive any synchronization in a language other than English after KH2 and the VAs are American. Flying them to Europe or Singapore to say a few lines for example would be rather expensive and a bit blown out of proportion, but I think some sort of recording would be nice. They wouldn't have to be present and it could be coordinated fairly well.

Well now the whole Lea being a keyblade welder makes more since, Merlin has some hyperbolic time chamber. They said that he and the fairies would help him with their magic somehow but they never went into detail.

Calling it now. Xion will have her body back, she'll become her own person and everyone will remember her.

 

Nobody really dies in Kingdom Hearts so that's no surprise. I'm all for Xion's revival, I just hate the convaluted nature of how she existed in the first place.

It's really nice to have this kind of thing while we don't get any news form KH III. But it also gets me worried, because it feels like these scenes won't be in the game, probably leaving most of us confused with the lack of background... but let's wait and see!

Throwing this out there: the former hitman and villain is capable of apologizing to the people who he has hurt, and Riku still hasn't. (/rant over)

Riku has spent all his time in CoM, KH2, and KH3D trying to redeem himself for what he did in KH1.

And never once has he actually apologized to the people he's hurt. Hell, his entire motivation for staying in the shadows in KH2 is to specifically get out of having to say that he's sorry to people.

momo_krys is still going to translate the Aqua lines in full, right? I mean I know it's probably something we're used to hearing from Aqua by now, but it's still just as important as the others, especially considering how you could argue the same thing about Xion's lines. Besides, it's still Woman's Month, so it's only fitting that we get to read everyone's lines! <3

 

 

" "I don't know, but I feel like it's something I must recall", He'd say... "

 

this part hurt my heart

 
I have a feeling in a proper English dub it would be read as "Don't know. Guess I just couldn't get it memorized." I mean, this is still Lea we're talking about, he's always gotta find a way to work that phrase into everything. "Committing to memory" just ain't gonna cut it, lol.

Sometimes..... He'd stare at my face

So I'd ask him, what's wrong?

"I don't know, but I feel like it's something I must recall", He'd say...

 

I think Lea keeps staring at Kairi because he's faintly remembering Xion here but very faintly. I also like how he keeps apologizing to Kairi since he didn't get to do so as Axel, and I love how Xion's part shows how much she loved the small, simple things she did with Axel and Roxas.
