Today’s post is on the shorter side!
I wanted to take a look at a small line of dialogue from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (pictured above) which I came across while playing through the game recently:
Topopo, I hear, really likes being high.
…Hey, stop smirking! High up off the
ground, is what I meant!
The joke revolves around the pun between high (location, opposite of low) and high (slang for being intoxicated by drugs, etc). So naturally this will awaken the most trivial of all trivial curiosities!
So what was this like in Japanese?
Short answer: As you may expect, the joke is actually purely an invention of the localization. There was no equivalent in Japanese.
