    Wanting a Kairi Story

    Welp, this feeling came up while I was finishing up the PlayStation version of Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory: I want to see Kairi have something worthwhile, like her own game or novel. As an individual, Kairi has had the least amount of screen time to show us who she is. All we got was her past as a little girl in Radiant Garden and with Sora. It’s like she is the third wheel when it comes to Sora and Riku’s bond and their adventures, which stinks for her. With Kingdom Hearts IV as the start of a new story arc, I would like Kairi to have her adventures that EXCLUDES Sora, by a lot. Let Kairi be a person without a man! Also, let Kairi be a person without falling into Disney tropes and clichés like the Disney princesses. Kairi deserves better! Am I done with the demands? Yes. I can say I want a Kairi story as much as I want. But I’m not sure how possible it will be with Square Enix’s current productions. It may take a long time for Kairi to have her own standalone if Square sees potential in telling a story with her front and center. Instead, I might end up sticking to fanfiction. It’s been a long time since I read any fanfiction, so I don’t know any recent takes on Kairi aside from my own piece, “Of Light and Darkness – Chaos.” I only have one problem with that, though: it’s more of a Jack Garland introduction to me than a Kairi piece. The only other idea I have for a Kairi fanfiction comes from the latter half of 2022. The few key points about it were that Kairi would get separated from Aqua on an investigation mission, there would be a lot of original characters, and it would have a different direction from Kingdom Heart IV’s Quadratum and the concept of reality. Kairi’s adventures could function parallel to what was described for Sora’s in Kingdom Hearts IV (and how Roxas explored worlds in 358/2 Days). Kairi would visit a world for a while and return to the hub world and go about her daily life before going back to the field. If it were possible, I would also include costumes for Kairi to wear. Some of them are outfits from the previous titles (Kingdom Hearts I and II) for nostalgia. Other outfits are new costumes to reflect Kairi’s life and events. And finally, there could be outfits that are like Sora’s formchanges, each outfit reflecting a bond from the Guardians of Light (sans Sora and his counterparts). Throughout the story, there could be flashbacks that show Kairi’s life in both Radiant Garden and Destiny Islands. Who are Kairi’s parents and what were they like? How was Kairi as an Islander and as a student? How did she, Sora, and Riku develop their friendships? Currently, in my idea space, I don’t have many original characters for a possible fanfiction. Honestly, I don’t have a full scenario for how Kairi’s story could play out. What I do have is two major original characters: a queen/empress who stands out differently from Kairi, and a former Dark Keyblade Master who protects her for the genuinely good. One of the key ideas is that the worlds surrounding the hub world are aware of each other and go against the known world order. So, there is an issue for Aqua and a moral conflict for Kairi. The core idea, though, is how Kairi handles being on her own without anyone she knows to guide her. Who is she without the Guardians of Light, the Keyblade, or Sora? That’s the story premise I would want to be explored in a Kingdom Hearts title about Kairi. What do you guys think about this? Let me know in the comment section. Until then, thank you for reading this post.

    I had close to 10 when the whole funko craze was going around. I got a ton of those as gifts but ended up donating them because I was never too big on them. I kept the 2 that I bought and like 6 others that were sentimental and donated the other 10 or so I was gifted. Now I have 5 KH figs overall. I prefer scale figs or something a little more akin to their actual design. I don't have many but that's usually my go-to nowadays

    Wanting a Kairi Story

    I would absolutely make terrible financial decisions to buy a KH game that's centered on telling Kairi's story. I would love to see her have more screentime and see who she really is beyond her interactions with the mainline story characters!

    I knew the Seasalt Trio was going to win by a landslide. The Sora / Kairi / Riku and Aqua / Terra / Ventus trios spend a lot of time in the games apart and chasing after eachother. Not saying I love them any less but I felt like we saw the Seasalt Trio grow the most together. Though I may have a slight bias cause Roxas has always been my fav I am surprised to see Hayner / Pence / Olette have more than Aqua / Terra / Ventus. F in the chat for Mickey / Donald / Goofy

    Sorry for the super late response lol but they rub against the back of my ankle. They're also kinda stiff so it's a little weird to walk down stairs? lol. But yeah the ankle rubbing is the worst part. I was thinking/hoping it was just needing to break them in but it's happened every time.

    I love every single trio but I relate to Xion, Roxas, and Axel's trio which is why they're my favorite trio plus they had the strongest connection in my opinion.

    I love all trios here, but nothing beats Xion, Roxas, and Axel (Lea) because they had the most relationship development in the entire Kingdom Hearts Franchise.

    The short lived trio of Riku, Axel, and Namine is missing from the list of options. I voted for Sora, Donald, and Goofy (mostly to not pour another vote into the Seasalt trio which I'm almost 99% will be the one that comes out with the most votes in the end).

    For as much as fans perceive Chain of Memories as a game that tanked and wasn't popular it actually was quite the opposite if sales reports and reviews from when it was released on GBA are to be believed. The PS2 port was a direct response to its success on the GBA. Not giving it full voice acting more so marks product of the time period as back in those days it was a very special occasion for a video game to release as a Full Voice Edition, even then it was rare for the Full Voice Editions to release outside of the game's original territory. Also going from only a few pieces of voice acting on the GBA release to all of the plot relevant scenes being voiced for the PS2 port was already a massive step up when it comes to adding voice acting.

    Oh if the game was sold at like the standard price with 2 games included they definitely got the better end of the deal. I just assumed that the price was raised to bundle the 2 games together. That changes my perspective on it entirely. I like the fact that you get rewarded going into KH2FM after beating Re:CoM and rewarded after KH2FM back into Re:CoM. On top of the rewards and the good prices, I feel like disks are also a lot nicer looking than the ones we have over here. So they were winning in almost every aspect. I feel like the only thing they got jipped on was the fact that they had to beat KH2FM to get the additional Org Cards whereas we just had to beat the game. Since Re:CoM came out after KH2 they added in the additional Organization member cards. These cards were in both the English and JP Re:CoM, but these cards weren't present in the original CoM for either region. The biggest difference was that in JP you had to beat KH2FM first as @DestinysUnion stated and in the US we were able to find the cards after clearing the game. Additionally in the 1.5 ReMix we were able to get 358/2 days cards as well. I feel like it's really cool that they added in that little detail. Yeah I was pleasantly surprised when I watched the Re:Coded movie on the 2.5 years back because of how much I actually enjoyed it. I avoided it like the plague prior to that because everywhere I went someone was saying something bad about it. I even enjoyed playing the game itself after I watched the cutscenes. I feel like if Re:CoM was released as a standalone title we would've gotten full voice acting. But considering it was meant to be incentive to buy KH2 again I get why they ended up leaving it out and going the text based route.

    Neku for me, but honestly I feel like Shiki doesn't get enough love, both from fans and from Neo.

    Why Lea Should Die.

    Eh, quite personally I feel it would be redundant seeing as how Axel had already died. I understand your reasoning but I feel as if there are other ways to add emotional turmoil besides character slaughter. I also don't see any reason to differentiate Roxas from Sora in terms of cheerfulness any further. In my own opinion Roxas is already quite the negative nancy. I would like to see his character developed more don't get me wrong, but I personally think there are others ways to do this than just character angst. That's just my own two cents anyways. Your reasoning has a point though.
