July 25, 2013: Radical Dreamers Serah was trapped in a dream of the life she wanted, but she rejected the false hope that the shadow Lightning offered. A mysterious female voice offered Serah guidance, and guess who it was? Vanille. She and Fang were able to help Serah because they were all dreaming at the same time. Vanille told Serah that Noel was off somewhere having a dream of his own. Fang used her weapon to cut open a spacetime distortion that Serah used to leave New Bodhum 00X AF. The atmosphere of A Dying World, 700 AF, is very lonely and sad.
June 23, 2013: The Impersistence of Memory Noel tried to argue why Caius couldn’t be behind the AI going haywire. He remembered that Caius was a Guardian of the seeress, but couldn’t remember his other reason. I’m tired of the Tower and its dumb rotating rooms. June 24, 2013: What She Saw
Originally, I loved this game, despite the gameplay becoming a little exasperating/tiring. I liked the sheer number of battle options better than Persona 3‘s, although I also felt like trimming the fat was a good thing, too. I liked P3‘s characters and story better. The story in P3 feels deeper, and succeeds in reaching for its epic scope. I also wished there was voice acting throughout P2: IS, like P3. You don’t just leave Troy Baker (Eikichi), Patrick Seitz (Nyarlathotep), and Wendee Lee (Maya) lying around!
Masataka Amano was a war correspondent. Before Maya met the other kids and established the Masked Circle, Masataka prepared to leave Japan to cover a war. Maya made a stuffed rabbit for him and called it Mr. Bunbun, but he refused to take it. Her father told her that if she cried, Mr. Bunbun would laugh at her. Masataka told her that he would accept Mr. Bunbun when he returned home, but he died before he could make it back.
