Unpopular opinions, hah?
Okay…let me take a crack at it…
1. I dislike the idea of the Guardians being substitutes for the Princesses. We get it, damsels in distress is cliché, sexist, uninspired blah blah blah…but there’s just something about reusing the original plot device that appeals to me, and also, the idea of the guardians, who have darkness in them sans Kairi (and Ven?), kind of doesn’t sit well with me. It’s like comparing silver and gold, one is more usable and flexible, but is also “inferior” by comparison. Why have a burger patty when the ribeye cap/filet mignon is so much better, y’know?
2. I’m fine with Kairi getting shafted with the writing. Well, I would’ve anyway, if they treated Riku the same.
3. I don’t think this series is going to last long enough to have a third arc, if only because Nomura is getting really old and do they even have a successor in sight? This is like Miyazaki all over again, we wanted Kondo but what we got was Miyazaki’s really untalented son.
Please don’t hurt me.
