Amazing, amazing show. Despite some of the technical difficulties you had, you guys persevered to present, what I believe, to be an engaging, and thought provoking show. So kudos to you all
And what a time it is for me to finally comment here, too! (I've been a fan of the podcast for awhile now, but due to complications in getting my confirmation e-mail, I couldn't post until now.)
And I have to say, I really enjoyed the three of you poking fun of the browser game's name. LOL. How I wish Square would just have it pronounced "Kye-Blade" to stop confusion on that part...
On the subject of the love triangle issue: should Sora ever get with Kairi... I don't think it would be as big a deal as you three thought it might be. Mainly because I do see them like Harry, Ron, and Hermione; plus, I don't think Kairi ever really had feelings for Riku. And as for Riku, I think he's long gotten over Kairi by this point in the series, so it should all be fine in the end. Granted, Nomura probably will never bring up the romance stuff again (as he seems to want to pretend it never happened), but should Sora/Kairi finally happen, I still think the three's friendship would remain perfectly intact. Besides, Riku always has Naminé to be his own light
Yeah... I'm a shameless SoraxKairi, RoxasxXion, and RikuxNaminé shipper, but I don't mind other variations of the pairings (like RikuxKairi, SoraxNaminé, RoxasxNaminé, and/or RikuxXion).
I also really enjoyed you guys' thoughts on KH continuing after the XS. After giving it some thought myself, I think I've decided I wouldn't mind the games continuing for ONE more series (but I think a third saga would be pushing it). Nomura DOES seem to have a lot of ideas in his head for the next saga, and I think there's a lot that could still be done with KH. Tbh, I think it would sort of be a waste to not expand on ideas and characters that were just recently added to the series (like VTA), so I hope the series continues to that end.
I actually think in a lot of ways another saga could be better than the current one, since Nomura would have more ample time to think things through, and begin anew on a clean slate. As long as the next saga does away with sins of the past (like the console hopping and things like that), and maybe simplifies things, and brings the Disney aspect back... I think it could be great. I'd love to see a more Disney side to KH again. Who knows? Maybe that's what the Julius boss fight in DDD was hinting at? (After all, most secret bosses in KH games tie heavily into the next one's story.)
By the way, I love you guys' April Fools idea! LOL. It sounds so sneaky, and just downright fun! ^_^ How about this for an idea? How about you say it's been leaked that Naminé is the Princess of Heart, and not Kairi? I could see people buying that. And it could actually make sense, since apparently it's odd for Kairi to be one of the Seven Lights, AND one of the Princesses. Maybe you could even say that when Naminé was created, she took the PoH side of Kai, while Kairi kept the wielder part? That would explain her light appearance, and more meek and fragile personality.
Once again, amazing show! I can't wait to listen to the next one. And with that, I'm going to end this really long post. LOL. (though I might comment again for the burning question, and to ask you guys questions).
