    Kairi: The Thread

    I'd rather we get some new females characters. Especially more adults, for once.

    Kairi: The Thread

    It's less "jiggle physics" and more of what I mentioned earlier. Fandoms love to fawn over and/or lewd pretty female characters, and in KH the pickings are very slim. Most of the girls are young or aren't very interesting or relevant.

    Kairi: The Thread

    It isn't surprising Aqua is so popular, she's one of few "waifu-able" characters in the cast who was given a lot of screen time and attention. I know a lot of yumes like their simple, dark-haired self-inserts, and I do believe she was kinda retconned into the story, but other than that I can't...

    Official Shipping Discussion | ships ahoy | fav Sora ship that doesn't involve Riku or Kairi

    The type of discourse KH has is to be expected from most decently sized fandoms. I can't think of any fandom that doesn't have "my ship is better than yours", or hate for a specific character who gets in the way of a ship being flung everywhere. Yeah, it's very dumb, but thank god people aren't...

    Official Shipping Discussion | ships ahoy | fav Sora ship that doesn't involve Riku or Kairi

    IMO this fandom is one of the least toxic when it comes to shipping. While there certainly is a bunch of people who'll dogpile on people who ship something "problematic", I've seen this done at a much worse scale (and with little to no validity) , and even to the point of attempted murder I...

    Kairi: The Thread

    They already kinda do this, 'cept characters get their time in the narrative based on if they can fight and/or have a keyblade.

    Official Shipping Discussion | ships ahoy | fav Sora ship that doesn't involve Riku or Kairi

    Agreed. I get the sentiment, but the argument that "there should be more affectionate males who aren't gay in fiction" doesn't hold any water when "close male friends who aren't gay" has always been the status quo and still is.

    Kairi: The Thread

    Yeah, but it's in the context of Kairi's purpose and treatment in the series, not Sokai v. Soriku.

    Kairi: The Thread

    But it's irrelevant to the conversation and if you want to talk about romance there is a dedicated thread.

    Kairi: The Thread

    Because I'm not too fond of the defense that he wanted to do something with her but couldn't when there were plenty of opportunities. Basically what Tartarus said, I really think he didn't want to do much with her outside of being a plot device but feels pressured to from fans. And that kind of...

    Kairi: The Thread

    Okay, but is there really an excuse for Kairi being so underutilized despite being considered a main character? She's not a real person, she's a fictional creation who's narrative can be formed and altered on a whim. Nothing was stopping the writers from giving her more focus or making her more...

    Tbh that feels more like something Square is more likely to do.

    Thoughts if Vanitas were to get some kind of 'redemption arc' later on?

    I'd like to see him be given more depth, but tbh I don't want a redemption because if the other redemption arcs in this series are anything to go by, it won't be executed well.

    Kairi: The Thread

    I think he's appropriately vilified, it's just that fans don't keep up the same energy with other characters that should be vilified because they find them attractive.

    What about a Kingdom Hearts without Disney??

    I feel like we shouldn't be wrestling between OC and Disney at all. There should be more focus on blending the two together where it doesn't feel like you're playing through two different games, in a thematic sense. That would really remedy the feeling of playing through commericals for movies...
