The first time I ever noticed the series, it was back in '05 when I was a 1st grader. I mean, the manga somehow made it into my school's book fair. I saw it, thought "wtf is this spiky-haired kid doing with Goofy and Donald? Is he Mickey transformed into a human?" and didn't think much of it afterwards.
Then six years later, my best friend let me borrow Re:Coded. She's pretty good at finding good games, so I trusted her judgement. By then, I was old enough for Disney to be nostalgic. I liked the premise, but the story confused me, so I went looking for answers.
It was kinda like finding what you think is an ordinary cave, only to find a massive underground city beneath it.
