Does anyone know what Yuna says after Fou-Lu beheads Soniel in this scene deleted or altered in the NA and EU versions? http://youtube.com/watch?v=yr_EL20mPZw
Part of the scene was translated at http://www.dragon-tear.net/images/bof4/cenfou.jpg but the translator skipped Yuna's lines. I also noticed that in the island bath scene, there were missing dialogue boxes on the translated screenshots, so the translations were only partially completed. The Shikk scene may not have been properly translated also. So, if anyone is generous enough to translate all the deleted scenes, here are the links for the videos of the other two:

I can't translate either, but I imagine Yuna said something referring to the sword he just picked up. Maybe "This will come in handy later" or something. Thanks for the clips though, I'd been looking for the deleted scenes. Also explains why Yuna had the sword in the first place. Always confused me.
I'm actually very surprised they cut what they did. Ahhh, censorship.

For the Shikk and bath scene, I think they took it out because of what the characters said moreso than anything else. Though it is in no way offensive now, I don't think they would have wanted Nina commenting Ursula's looks while naked in the water. Nor would they have wanted Ursula offering to show her rear with her pants already down. >_> Course, now a days thats nothing. But for a relatively mild game from back in the day these were some big jumps. But it looks like the scenes are missing translations (Like you pointed out, there a message boxes missing. Two full message boxes in Japanese don't equal "Hmph" In English. )
I guess the Fou-Lou scene kinda makes sense.... But they could have just not shown where he cut his head off, and then just shown his corpse on the ground and continued from there. They kinda cut out a big part of the story....Then again, you have no Idea what Yuna said. Maybe he told Fou-Lou he liked the way he looked? >_<
