Largest ever time cut just achieved in Lunar the Silver Star WR Speedrun!

I finally got a good run with my new route. Lunar the silver star jumps from a 2:57 straight to a 2:51 cutting 5 minutes and 43 seconds from the former world record - the single largest time cut ever in the history of the game!
I'm still not done though, looking to drop the game to 2:49:XX before moving back to the Japanese version.

I'll try to answer any questions and welcome any feedback!

Sorry I'm not able to watch the full vid right now, but... Are there any bugs/glitches that you take advantage of to skip major parts? I don't keep up with speedrunners too much so I have no idea if any have been found/used for TSS.

I just took another 5 minutes off of that WR! A triumph! Solid run that I can rest on for a while!

I'm headed back to 100% now because it got accepted to Completithon this year - I'll link to that when it's getting closer. Trying to get a final time of sub 5:30 in that I guess.

Then it's back to the Japanese version to get the sub 2:45 any% run.

I may never improve this 2:46 English pb, idk. If I get greedy I may come back to take it past the 2:45 barrier...but man...this one feels real good. I'm actually legit satisfied with this run finally.

Does anyone have a time on SSSC? This will have to include gathering all Red Chests & Bromides. (Maybe secret items too)

Speed runs are easy and simple. Gathering everything in record time is what i respect the most
