Flesh by mother, soul by father
- Sep 22, 2009
I was referring to more widely conducted polls and not just in one place, but point understood.
It may be a horrible reason, but it's a reason nonetheless.
In any series where the majority of characters are male, there's going to be a large amount of female fans who will ship.
But shipping aside, as mentioned before, it feels like Kairi is being force fed to players.
Suddenly, "WHOOO IMPORTANT".
Out of nowhere.
If they want to make Kairi all included, fine, but is it really necessary to rush things and just shove her into the LAST game of the saga? They might as well just wait until after KH3 when the series gets a new start, where characters can be introduced/reintroduced.
It almost sounds like you're mixing up the popularity of a subject based on lack of awareness.
This is a different case--we all know Kairi exists and that she's there. We've seen her, if only for a little while, some just don't like her based on what they've seen.
Oh my goodness that scene! XD
I squealed a little when I saw and could only nod.
No...no, the thing about hating Kairi because she "gets in the way" is a mad one. If Sora aren't written to be gay then it can't be helped. If Kairi didn't exist that wouldn't mean that they all of a sudden would be sexing it up on the beach. Don't get me wrong though, I'm fine with slash pairings but female characters are never "in the way".
I do agree with you though that she felt very last minute. She's had such little presence since KH2 I was certain they wouldn't try bumping up her importance until after this saga. But as I mentioned earlier I get the feeling they're going the "default" road of using her any way because there's just such little room to properly flesh out her character in KH3.
