because a Dream World Neku talking to Sora who was dreaming him about meeting in the real world is such a logic scenario. Yeah, let's not even go on how it's even questionable if Neku does exist in the KHverse or he actually remembers Sora.
If I've understood the TWEWY
subplot correctly (though admittedly I never looked into it that much), Joshua brought them all to the sleeping Traverse Town as the new grounds for the Game after their world was lost to darkness. However, the partners got split up and they couldn't continue the game (or leave), hence their being there when Sora and Riku visit.
So Neku and friends are kind of doing the same thing as Sora and Riku, I guess.
Side note: the Cloud vs Sephiroth thing
Goofy's line in Japanese isã€Œå…ƒã®ä¸–ç•Œã«å¸°ã£ãŸã®ã‹ãªã€(I wonder if they went back to their original world)
My immediate thought is that this could be referring to Cloud and Sephiroth's appearance in Olympus during KH1
Sora repliesã€Œåˆ¥ã®ä¸–ç•Œã«è¡Œã£ãŸã‚“ã ã€(They went to a different world)
This is using ã‚“ã to mark an explanation.
So the English scene doesn't feel mistranslated to me, though some of the nuance may have been lost.
And on the topic of original lines, Neku says ã€Œãã†ã ãªã€€ã‚·ãƒ–ãƒ¤ã§å¾…ã£ã¦ã‚‹ã€(That's right. We'll be waiting [for you] in Shibuya.)
