ANIME/MANGA FTW! Welcome, Kairi! Is your forum name related to Kingdom Hearts by any chance?

Spelling is bad even for native-speakers of the language. I'm surprised at how good both Buddy and your's english actually is. For those that don't natively speak it, it's pretty good!!


Did your name come from Kingdom Hearts, by chance? ;)

Yay for anime fans! :D And yes the name is from Kingdom Hearts... Again Robin introduced me to it and I fell in love with instantly. I've only played the PSP game though xD

To be honest, I actually lived in England for some time, but I have the feeling I've lost most of my vocabulary since we moved back to Switzerland. That is obvious though, since I now speak Swissgerman most of the time ^^'


Birth By Sleep (the PSP game) is indeed fantastic, but give 1 and 2 a shot as well. And Re:Coded for the DS. That game is actually pretty good.

I really want to play them, but the main problem is that I don't own my own PS2 xD I will play Re:Coded though, since I just finshed Okamiden (another great game! I already loved Okami!).

Re:coded is great. Takes a little while to get into it, perhaps, but I'd call it the best DS KH game. Granted, I don't think 358/2 days gives it much of a competition. I didn't actually play that game, but I wasn't so enthralled by the media on it. The game I really want thought is Kingdom Hearts: 3D [Dream, Drop, Distance]. That game looks pretty amazing, to say the least.

I am playing 358/2 days, and I find the story itself - as usual - very nice. However, it gets kind of boring that you "only" have to do those missions for days - and they're always the same. I really wanna play only because of the story and because I'm a fan of the series, otherwise I agree with you that it is not that a good game. You only miss the story, which is very interesting and catching as usual.
As I know lovely Kairi she will lend her PSP to me one day, so I can actually play Birth By Sleep too (I actually have her DS at the moment :D )

I watched the cut-scenes for 358/2 days, so I got all the important plot bits. Though, honestly, I find the whole game to be rather pointless. Perhaps it's just me (and perhaps I don't understand the KH over-all plot as well as I thought, which is quite possible),

Kingdom Hearts people too! WOOHOO!  ;D Add in that I'm practically owned by Joss Whedon LOL and then I myself into some anime here & there too. Oh yeah, I should probably mention that I'm somewhat of an X-Men, Magic the Gathering, & Culdcept nerd as well.  ::)

Buddy, I forgot to mention: Based on what I've seen across the internet, your english is surprisingly good. I've come across many a people who can't muster english even half-way decently; you, my fair lady, are doing the language justice. For someone who's native language isn't english, you're doing a superb job. Keep it up!
Ummm... ???

Hello, Lulu!  Welcome!  The 35 minutes will be worth it, I promise.  I finally finished Episode 3 a few days ago and I loved (almost) every minute of it.  It's pretty epic!  So where do you Quest from?

Crap. I can't get people's gender right here lol. Sorry 'bout that. I'll fix it now. I hate it when I do that (it's not the first time. I've done it before.)

EDIT: Fixed. Really sorry about that. I really do hate it when that happens. It's even more awkward when I do it in real life. Sometimes to customers. It's not my fault that they have ridiculously long hair and I only glimpsed them from the side! *rambles on for hours*

Sweet!  One of my amigas hails from Texas--I think she lived in a place called Athens?  No idea where it is, or what major cities are nearby, but hey, welcome! :)
