Yeah, I'd also like to know where he came from and how he ended up on her magical water path.
"I dropped something."
You dropped something? On to her magical water path thing? Riiiiiiiiight...

So anyone who could tell me how he ended up on her water-walkway from picking something up after being in a rush?

Damn ninja by a few seconds :p

He dropped something off the bridge, saw it was still on the surface of the water on a magical floating path beside a scantily clad girl with ridiculous hair breaking into a tree lab, and realised that one way or another he was going to get involved in the story.

I think they just misspelled "cilia". You know, those Japanese ? they can't spell. It will turn out, the girl is covered in them. That's how she walks on water.

Dropped it off a bridge? What bridge? They were nowhere near a bridge. Although I'll buy the Narrative Causality thing.

At 4:32, you can see Cowlick girl walking on magic pads towards a bridge over the river, and at 4:43 (when she gets to the lab) the bridge is behind her. You can see the supports when the Mystery Guy is introduced.

Yes I see the bridges, but they're nowhere near any of them. And ok say she walked under that one bridge, mystery guy still didn't appear until she was already at the lab. I would think if he's jumped off of the bridge onto the magical walkway she'd have noticed him before she got to the lab.

In the game when you (the guy) walk over to that area the bridge is right next to, and leads to, the lab and there is an access staircase to the water below the bridge. Her magical walkway goes right next to the access staircase.

Ok, but you can't see that in the cutscene.

You are correct. In the game you can choose either to have the boy or the girl as your main character, and if you pick the boy you get a lot more background for the setting of where all that is taking place.

So is this the cutscene from picking the girl then?

Yup, picking either one gives you their points of view through the story. (Note: I'm on an ultra shitty laptop right now that couldn't handle playing the video at more than 5 frames a second, but I'm 95% sure they were watching her opening cutscene.)

Probably not, if I remember correctly his opening doesn't have a cutscene and instead lets you walk around for a little bit as you learn about his job/life/how he got to that point (The girls background is intentionally way more mysterious. Also, the boy was the first one I played so I remember way less about his opening so I might be way off on if he gets an opening cutscene or not.)

"This is not wheelchair accessible..." (in reference to the stairs)
*thinks about a scene later on in the game*
...I laughed harder than I needed to after hearing that...

Also, that whole scene with the "blond chick" (Millia) and the "dropped something dude" (Jude) made more sense if you started playing the game as the dude himself... I now feel sorry for those that choose to play her first, though...

Regardless I don't know if Graham and Paul want to do any more of this game. Although they have done more than one episode of worse games' cutscenes. Actually this game wasn't all that bad.

It's actually a really fantastic JRPG, unfortunately this is just an awkward introductory cutscene to have for the girl character.
