...uh, Not true. These Fashion trends showed up during the god damn European Dark Age. The most conservative and religion focused period in human history. All it is, is just fashion trends changing overtime. It's been a thing since ancient Greece.
Aw, come on! Don't slice the preachiness of that little story synopsis.
I guess even stories need to be taken serious these days. Who said (story time) was about accuracy?

Just... ugh. How disappointing.

There are some things I like about the leaked story bits I've seen, but Kairi and Aqua really deserved better. :/

LOL. I love this game and everything I’ve seen except anything in regards to a certain character. all of the sokai stuff. It’s so forced, and just paints Kairi as a non-character solely driven by being Sora’s love interest.

Oh, so my impression that this whole thing feels like smashed in with a hammer just to follow up on what KH 1 & 2 implied isn't that rare it seems.

I certainly like the bits where Kairi functions as Sora's light, basically restores him (which is a callback to KH I no matter how different the visuals are) and leads him back to where the others are.
These things could have served as part of her own character arc but they just had to dumb it down.


That being said,


From what I've read and seen of accidental spoilers so far I have the suspicion that when it comes to some story parts and "solutions for character's problems" Nomura just wanted to "get over with it" and opted for the quickest and least impactful resolution available.

There seems to be a sort of rush to end the current saga storyline as quickly as possible in order to establish the new one whose setup is subtly but definitely placed throughout KH III itself, including all the pointers towards UX.

Like i.e. Roxas' return and how it happened is handled only with a few sentences spoken by him before the plot quickly moves forward again, he mentions Ansem the Wise having a hand in it and thus working to "atone" for what he once put him through but you never actually see anything in regards to it, them not even interacting once to show if their former antagonistic relationship somehow changed.

The "resolution" of Vanitas leaves one with a "what now?" face as while both Sora and Ven were willing to grant a second chance Vanitas just seems to be "lol nope, I like being evil" before he vanishes, the question if he's now gone for good or simply somewhere recuperating again not being answered (in Luxord's, Marluxia's and Larxene's cases it is outright stated they'll be recompleted as humans and Sora thinks he'll see them again one day).

In light of the two above I almost find the awakening of Ventus well done, even if what I read from some summaries the supposed special bond with Sora isn't really addressed much, they at least have some interaction, shake hands and Ven's return is actually shown compared to Roxas'.

Naminé seems to be almost non-existent while I haven't yet read anything too big spoilery about how Xion is handled, but the snippets I've come to know about Terra seem to imply that his case is handled the best.

I really can't wait to see the epilogue and secret movie. It's gonna set up so much.

How long do you think the epilogue and secret movie will be as it's gonna set up the future of the KH franchise.

As Nomura has said that the series does not end with KH3 and that this is just the end of the Xehanort Saga, and taking the ending with Sora vanishing into account, I think that the next game in the series is going to be a retelling of the mobile game just with Sora as the lead instead. I wouldn't be surprised if the epilogue or secret ending had Sora meeting with The Foretellers, Luxu or The Master of Masters.
