KH has turned into shonen trash again. Ballad is expressing his feelings of the shonen-level convolution by renaming the series into its proper name.


Ah, I think I get it now.
He's comparing KH III to KH II's level in terms of standard anime shonen storytelling tropes. Does that mean we'll need a bunch of side games again to fix the mess this causes? Or just some of the "free" DLC stuff Nomura speaks about in the current interview?

In one scene where Lea speaks about having to "iron out some plot points" while Sora was apart from all the other characters this reeks for me of interesting stuff happening behind the scenes we're not privy to just like it was in KH II as well.


Sorry, I can be a bit slow on the uptake these days.
While I am not very hyped outwardly there is a sort of inner unrest nonetheless.

So, some people are saying that the Kingdom Hearts series doesn't treat their female characters well?

No offense or anything, but I'm sure that there are other video games and series that are even worse in that regard.

I don’t think other games giving worse treatment of their female characters excuses KH from criticism on that subject.

That's what I mean by selective sympathy. People only feel bad when bad things happen to groups they care for even when it happens to the entire roster, and when people show that, I know from that point perspective of the other side is meaningless.

No problem, I did expect that, to even considered to not put that under spoiler. And there is some Pandora Hearts too, oh my oh my. Either way, here goes the explanation, which of course goes to the explanation.

Damn, I totally overlooked answering this one in my last post:

Complete agreement on this one.
There are certainly problems to address in this field, yet as DraceEmpressa says it feels that in some of the examples given there is selective sympathy at work.

Oh, the perspective of the other side may still be acknowledged, but it will certainly be put as subordinate to the group the selective sympathy is shown towards.

Sooo... KH3 is (so far) the game with the higher metascore of the franchise.

What do you guys think of that? I'm hyped as diddly
