Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will be released in Japan in a few days and Level-5 released nine new Manzai (Japanese stand-up comedy) clips, featuring the fairies Nico and Pucci as they launch themselves in absolutely hilarious dialogue about the most varied topics, while one acts as the serious guy and the other plays the role of the stupid one in perfect Manzai stile.
The funniest clip is probably the second, revolving around the meaning of the acronym “RPG”. The fifth is also great if you’re a fan of the other games developed by Level-5 like White Knight Chronicles, Danball Senki and Inazuma Eleven.
Of course they’re in Japanese, so you probably won’t understand much, but they are so expressive (a testament to the quality of the animation by Studio Ghibli and the acting by two professional Manzai artists), that they tend to be extremely funny anyway.
You can enjoy all nine clips past the cut, and hope that Namco Bandai will translate and dub them properly when they’ll bring the game over to the west next spring.
