> red-san,

I'm very sorry for the late reply!!

I didn't know about that! But, yes, I do have heard about Jedi and Samurai thing!

The official translation for 'May the Force be with you'...it's フォースと共にあれ

Did you know that George Lucas and Star Wars has a lot of inspiration from Akira Kurosawa's work? Especially the film, "The Hidden Fortress", Bushido and 70's Anime and Manga? Films like "Galaxy Express 999" and "Space Cruiser Yamato". That's why Jedi's look like Samurais ?

How do you say "May the Force be with you" in Japanese?

Oh wow.:D This video was just awesome. It is nice to see how pop culture translates. I'd love to see more videos like this.

Also, Risa-sensei's zany-ness is wonderful. It reallly makes me want to learn more Japanese, instead of only thinking about how difficult it can be.

Ammy Phoenix-san konnichiwa,

Thanks for your feedback!

The Japanese equivalent would be "Koitsu no fōsu wa tsuyoi."

Please note that this would be different from the one in the movie.

Stay tuned,
