"MELISSA" AGGRESSIVELY PLAYING IN THE DISTANCE
Okay this is awesome.
I’ve always hoped that at the end of the final Future Past chapter, after the 12 children get rid of that group of Risen, they find Morgan laying down in the field. The two that find him first?
…Are Owain and Lucina, who asks for his hand to help him to his feet.
"impressed" as he looks at me with the face of pure terror
A few days before the game was released in Japan, the official “Lightning Returns” accounts on Twitter and Facebook uploaded short comments from the voice-actors.
Kaji Yuuki, the voice of Hope Estheim, left an especially intriguing message:
It’s hard to believe that nearly four years have already passed since the day I was allowed to participate in “Final Fantasy”, a series which I absolutely love. And I’m so happy that I was given the opportunity to spend such a long period with Hope Estheim. As I experienced his life throughout the games, I progressed with him. For this installment, I would really like everyone to discover, firsthand, the new sides of Hope that will be revealed. Thank you and please enjoy!
"For this installment, I would really like everyone to discover, firsthand, the new sides of Hope that will be revealed."
Kaji-san blatantly says that LR is going to reveal “new sides of Hope” and he asks the fans to discover them firsthand.
There are still many people that stubbornly believe that the Hope within the Ark is a complete fake. Nothing he said or did is canon to Hope’s character. The real Hope only appears in Lightning’s heart and after Bhunivelze’s defeat. But if this is true, there is nothing “new” to add to Hope. He would still be the same angelic and brilliant character that he has always been.
So what is Kaji Yuuki trying to tell us through his message..?
The Hope within the Ark is the REAL Hope. He is not a complete fake; he is just missing his emotions. And the fans can still learn new things about Hope’s character through the things he says and does in “Returns”. The sassy remarks, the overprotective commands, and the possible reflection of Hope’s emotions through Bhunivelze - these are all NEW traits that we can add to Hope Estheim! Kaji-san really wants us to discover them as we play through the game.
“You’re tired? Geez, you’ve been napping a lot these days.”
“It’s kinda a bummer, what with your sleepiness. But it’s you.”
> Junpei paused, before grinning.
“Let’s hang out after your nap, ‘kay? To make up for all those time you doze off!”
> You can feel a smile on your face. Despite it all, you’re glad to be friends with Junpei.
> Thanks for making me laugh, Junpei.
“No problem, man.”
> Close your eyes?
This is so great
