These are the translations (English, with Kanji, just Hiragana and Katakana, Romanji) used in the video.

"The life of a samurai was very hard."

武士 の生活はとても厳しかったよ


Bushi no seikatsu wa totemo kibishikatta yo.

"Your older brother always acts like a gentleman."

お兄さんはいつも 士君子 のように振る舞うね


Oniisan wa itsumo shikunshi no you ni furumau ne.
