The Origin of Mewtwo - The rarely-seen opening of Mewtwo Strikes Back

Some of you may have heard that Mewtwo Strikes Back had a very important intro cut out which was included in the Japanese theatrical release. The opening dealt with the origin, infancy, and character shaping of Mewtwo, something so vital to the story it's a mystery why they didn't extend the barely 1.5-hour long English dub by a measly 10 minutes to show it.
The opening was later released in Japan as a standalone CD called The Birth of Mewtwo. The opening was first available in English only on the Japanese DVD of Mewtwo Strikes Back. It was finally released to the West as an added feature to the Mewtwo Returns DVD, called "Origin of Mewtwo".
My point is, I've found it online, but only in English (sorry weaboos). All joking aside, I tried but could not for the life of me find it subbed anywhere. I gave up and went to YouTube, where a few versions of it do exist, but they're all terrible in their own ways.
So what I did was play the highest visual quality video and the highest audio quality at the same time, muting the visual one. I played this video (better audio) and then went over to this video (better visuals) and pressed play at exactly 0:14. That should give the best experience. And yes, the better-visuals video is recorded from camera, but it's still better than all else. Stop complaining. :P
Well I hope you liked my little guide and of course the "Origin of Mewtwo". This post was inspired by this blog by @Destiny Queen.
