Lucky fans who attended KINGDOM HEARTS Concert -First Breath- yesterday were given a special performance by Ryotaro Okiayu and Iku Nakahara, the voice actors of Terra and Naminé, that accompanied the beautiful brass orchestra performing music from the KINGDOM HEARTS series.
Ryotaro Okiayu and Iku Nakahara performed their roles as Terra and Naminé live on stage during the musical performance, reciting their lines from the games. The second part introduced a brand new scenario with the Lingering Will meeting and communicating with Naminé prior to the events of KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth By Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-.
First of all, there was no talk of KH2.8 or KH3.
Okiayu is Terra and Nakahara is Namine, so interactions between Terra and Namine took place along with the music.
The first part was Terra and Namine lines from in the Kingdom Heart games.
The second part interaction was a scene where Okiayu spoke as the 'Lingering Will', meeting and speaking with Namine in the darkness (?).
The story was that Namine, following Sora's heart, ended up where the Lingering Will was.
Will: This place, it's...
Namine: This is a world of your memories. You're the only one the people of this time don't know the whereabouts of. I made it this far by following the links of those connected to you.
Will: Who are you?
Namine: Nice to meet you, I'm Na.. I'm a witch who manipulates memories.
Will: A witch?
Namine: Right now, you're bound by two sets of memories. One is your own memories. The other is that of a very dark power.
Will: Master... Xehanort...
Namine: Soon you'll be touched by a familiar light. Please guide her, so that she isn't confused by the darkness.
Will: She... Aqua! But I can't do anything, the way I am now...
Namine: Everyone is fighting in the the ways they can. I want you, too, to believe in yourself and fight so that your heart doesn't melt into the darkness. We will all make it to the same place, you see.
Will: Aqua... Ven... Someday, I'll... no matter what, I'll...
~The Unknown plays~
Will: I've never forgotten what happened on that day. I'll make it here and show you, no matter what.
The Lingering Will said, "Aqua, Ven!" as though talking to Namine had made it remember their names.
This is just my impression, but it felt as though it were a sign that Terra will come back from the Lingering Will.
Then, Nomura explained that this story happens a little while before KH0.2.
Nomura said that this conversation between the Lingering Will and Namine was "not going to appear in a game, it's a story just for the guests at this concert."
That's a general idea of the content.
