Donald is a nerd lol
This triggers the duckaustists
I have no idea what kingdom hearts is and at this point i'm afraid to ask
>>122807677Is this from a manga? The art seems too good to be from american comics
>>122808697The most pure, diluted form of autism given an official release. That's what Kingdom Heart is, and let's be real, always has been.
>>122808697it's an action RPG that is very cleanly split between fun disney worlds and actual plot, boy wacks shitty old man and his many forms with a key.
>>122808697It's 300 hour long shonen anime for japanese 10 year olds. It's about a series of magical boys/girls that team up with disney characters to learn the meaning of friendship in order to fight demons and kill a thousand year old space wizard over and over.Because there are like 10 different 30 hour jrpgs from KH1 to KH3 that released from 2001 to 2020, it's infamous for getting bogged down in western comic book levels of convolution and retcons. Lots of evil clones, characters with each other's faces, pointless deaths and pointless revivals, later entries even introduce time travel and alternate dimensions. So it's not very complicated, just long and stupid.
>>122808731Hey now. KH1 was not autistic. Kids latched onto it for a reason.
>>122808716>>122807677In case people are wondering it's an edit. Donald effectively says the same thing but the actual translation was like "People only know the rules of their own world, they can't handle having to deal with how the other worlds operate"
>>122809311Way more important info about Donald in KHApparently there is a scene in the original Japanese version of KH2 where Daisy spanks him which was censored in the international releases
I remember in the 80s I had a comic about an alien invasion and all the disney characters getting into spaceships invented by Gyro Gearloose and shooting them down in a big epic battle. So this sort of thing didn't surprise me
>>122807677TLDR: No meddling.
>>122808731purest than penders?
>>122807677Honestly the KH manga is pretty good for this sort of shit, pic related
>>122810139I know, I just wanted to catch people off guard that expected a zettaflare spoiler
>>122808697Kingdom Hearts is light.
>>122807716Woody sounds awful
>>122809311You got the original anywhere?
>>122808697I'm playing Kingdom hearts 3 for the first time and this is a ressume of all 3 games just for you>Darkness bad>Light good>I have the power of the heart and friends you will never understand it cuz you're evil>I'm evil and lonely and sad but also have no emotions, and i must destroy everyone cuz muh darkness.>Hey fellas, did anyone mention the door to darkness? that's kingdom hearts all 3 games right there.>>122808869It was just autistic enough to work.
>>122812357sounds fun im in
>>122812397If you can stomach this tier of cringe writing then you may play it and enjoy it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7yESis3lKw
>>122809311No, this image is from the original scanlation of the manga. It's obvious whoever scanlated it just went with the first dictionary definition for a lot of terms, so it sounds a lot obtuse than it's meant to. For example, "Truth" is a terrible translation of a word that should have been translated as "reality" or "rules of the world" in this context. The official translation just phrased the whole thing in a more coherent way. It's similar to the manga HunterxHunter which is known for its wordy-ass scanlation, while the official release phrases things in a way that use half as much text and are way easier to understand.
>>122808845I'm still at shock at how the fucking mobile phone that hadn't ended yet ended up being relevant in KH3, and for the looks of it the characters from it will become even more relevant.
>>122812204Don't forget that KH manga writing is close to FF writing in more than one way. It ain't all bad at all if you are able to just let it take you on the ride.Same goes for the games. Just wait till EPIC loses the exclusive rights and everything ends up on Steam for 10 bucks.>>122811488I'd be interested in the same. Other pages list that quote as Donalds' too.I'm aware it has been worded a bit more eloquently in the fan scanlation but I'm not sure to what extend. I can check if anyone happens to have the Japanese scan.
>>122807677Cap would never stand for that bullshit.
>>122812470Woody shittalking young Xehanort and Vanitas jobbing to Sulley were cringe kino
>>122812527>Vanitas jobbing to SulleyThat was unironically the best part of the entire game.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtS4XBYKbXs
>>122812527>Cringe kinoThat's the best way to describe kingdom hearts
>>122812607>tfw parents will find random doors in their kid's bedroom for no reason
>>122807677Truth: Too many zippers.
>>122813042this is only really true of donald's fit.
I grew up with KH and somehow didn't turn out to be a turbo autist. I knew this girl who was so obsessed with it she tried to make her own little Organization XIII roleplay group and would sign everything with her "nobody" name.
>>122813763Ha, you're on /co/, you're already half turbo autist.
>>122812470>>122812527I'm sad this didn't happen
>>122808697kh2 final mix on critical mode is one of the greatest rpg experiences ever. I stand by that.But also this >>122808731>>122810224kh manga is pretty great, like that time Sora got solicited by a prostitute.
>>122813792Well, yeah. But at least I didn't write a novel-length KH fanfic.
>>122813763What was her nobody name anon?also give me her adress.
>>122807677Any updates on the animated series? Could be unironic kino if written properly.
>>122812357>but also have no emotionsthat was an error that the ones studying the heartless madethey very much do have emotions
>>122813903I just googled her name and she can still be traced so I'm not posting it.
>>122807677kh manga is χno get filtered
>>122814568>>122807677>>122810224ok if i wanna read the kh manga do i have to know anything about the games?
>>122808697Fanfic with a big budget. Imagine if that giant smash bros fanfic got an adaptation, or something like Sonichu, that's basically kingdom hearts.
KH is genuinely fun, no idea why it filters so many people.>DUDE THE PLOT IS SO FUCKING BIZARRE AND WILDnot really, its just told in a convoluted way. If you can handle Dark Souls lore you can handle KH lore. Its the same level of "turn your brain off and accept these rules on how the setting works".
>>122814598No. The manga is a retelling of the games' story, but with more of an emphasis on character interactions.
>>122814598you should play the games as well and they'll give you a much better appreciation for the manga feeling like it was written by a human being and not an alien but it isn't required.
>>122807716Good but, I still think the Monsters Inc Door bit was better
>>122812357I mean, you're leaving out how the villain's goal is to samefag so hard the universe shuts down so he can see what comes next.
>>122814105They start off empty, but gradually regain emotions as they experience.
>>122814632yeah but dark souls has like 40 minutes of cutscenes in total and they're just cool bosses with no dialogueKH2 alone has 13+ hours. and only like 2 hours are relevant to the plot, and even those make me want to die since it's 99% heart/darkness talk.
>>122814105nobodies don't have hearts and only simulate emotions at first. but if they are forced into enough wacky scenarios in their lives they can develop their own personalities, desires, etc
>>122814632there is just an absurd amount of content to sift through, and when you come out the other side with all your knowledge about nobodies and keyblade inheritance and hearts traveling through time if you try to condense any of it to another human you just sound like an autistic maniac
>>122814897To be fairWhen people ask you to explain Kingdom Hearts, they're asking you to explain the plot of thirteen games and hundreds of hours of story. And then if it takes more than a sentence or two they get mad.
>>122814897Not really. You dont need to play every game, they infodump enough that you can just take some things at face value. There's like 8 different games so obviously its difficult to summarize them.
>>122814632The difference is that Dark Souls is well writen and with actual messages while KH hearts is garbage.
>>122815131>Dark Souls is well written and with actual messagesThanks for the giggle.
>>122815155cope, Kingdom Hearts is a bunch of final fantasy 7 clones, a bunch of random Disney characters, a lot of random pointless shit and muh friendship
>>122815226>a bunch of final fantasy 7 clonesHave you ever actually played FF7?
Bro imagine getting filtered by a Disney game
>>122815258Yes, did you?
>>122815441Yes. So what are the FF7 clones you're referring to in KH? Because they aren't clones.
>>122815462God fucking damnit don't even start. The not Cloud, the not Sephiroth, the not Aerith. You can bein denial all you want, they even share the same creator who love to repeat the same shit over and over through his works.
>>122815555They aren't clones. Do you think Mickey and Donald are clones?
>>122815555We all know you were trying to call the OCs FF7 clones.
>>122815555Huh? There's way better comparisons for parallels, and even then the characterization is totally different. Unless you mean the literal appearance of Cloud in the game, but regardless it's hardly the same character.
>>122815555Do you think that whenever a character appears in another series or crossover that it's a clone???Like you think a character in-universe visited the canon FF7 world, stole their DNA somehow, and created clones of them to make them appear in the game???
>>122815555Sorry is basically the anti cloud in terms of personality and in terms of design he shares way more with >>122815700Kairi and Aerith are fairly different by virtue of the fact that Aerith is playable and somewhat useful.Riku and Sephiroth though? Yeah there's a fair amount if similarity there.
>>122815755>Riku and SephirothHuh? If anything Riku is more like Seipher from 8. Sephiroth has a massive mommy complex and just wants to fuck with Cloud. I dont really see it.
>>122815755You never actually played any of the games, have you.
>>122815817They're similar in that they're silver haired bishonen with green/blue eyes with an X on their chest, that the hero looks up to initially, and are corrupted by the power of a vaguely feminine dark side (Malificent/Jenova).The difference is that Riku gets redeemed out of that whereas Sephiroth turns into a time traveling gay stalker with feathers.
>>122815935I've played every game except for Days and X, up until 3. And I hated 3's structure (and ending, and mobile game shilling) so much that I returned it and never bothered with Re:Mind.
>>122816013>Sora looks up to RikuLOL what? They're friends and childish rivals over Kairi. Sora doesnt hero worship Riku like Cloud did to Seph.
>>122815555This one right?
>>122816089Not to the same extent, no, but he does kinda pine after Riku in the first two games because he's missing.
>>122815131>dark souls has a good storythis is your brain on youtube video essays.
>>122812470Wish they got Warburton to voice Buzz again.Liked him better than the toolman and whoever they got for this.
>>122816249And Cloud never pines after Seph do this makes the analogy weaker.
>>122807677This is a scanlation the official translation is less wordy
>>122808869KH1 was pure Disney kino, the rest is autism
>>122815555Nah, Sora's not really Cloud, nowhere near surly enough.Kairi barely does anything and is generally unimportant, unlike flower bitch who continuously gets shoved to be more important as time passes.Riku is sorta a fag early on, but at least grows out and becomes somewhat of a chad. Sephiroth is a faggot and continously becomes a bigger faggot as time passes.
>>122813868Couldn’t do it because it would mess up the story they wanted to tell or tone they were going for.
>>122816515Congrats, I'll acqueses to that. The way the protagonists relate to their silvery haired blue-green eyed bishonen rivals with X's on their chest that get corrupted by feminine powers is different.You have one point you countered. What about the other three?
Sora: Just wants to save everyone and chill with his buds.Cloud: Angst over not being able to save the one girl that got him to give a shit.Riku: Angst over how badly he fucked up.Sephiroth: Mommy issues and angst over whether or not he's human.Kairi: Nice GirlAeris: Such a Nice Girl that she can crack through the tough exterior of any angsty boy.
>>122807677>we must maintain the world borderwhat did Donald mean by this
>>122816844The gameplay remained good at least
>>122816658Riku's X is exclusive to his KH1 design, and he very quickly changes out of it. In fact, said X is on Sora's outfit and explicitly not Riku's, which is a plot point in Dream Drop Distance. Riku's seduction was from Maleficent, but he was actually corrupted by Ansem, who's got a deep manly voice and goes shirtless.Sure you could say that they still have blue-green eyes, but you could use that same argument to say that Sora and Squall are based on one another with their brown hair, blue eyes, chain necklace, weird sword, and role as the hero.
>>122807716Remember this shit is confirmed as a canon sidestory in the Toy Story series>"Kingdom Hearts 3 also manages to find a way to tell an in-universe story that's separate from the normal goings-on of Andy's room and its dozens of characters. Pixar ultimately approved the approach, even accepting that the events of Kingdom Hearts 3 fit into the animated series' canon."https://gamerant.com/kingdom-hearts-3-pixar-toy-story-canon/
>>122816658Wait you're actually serious and you think Riku is meant to be a Sephiroth expy
>>122808697Didney for weeb gaymers
>>122815131>Dark Souls is well writen and with actual messagesWhich I'm sure you figured out on your own without watching 18 half-hour explanations on youtube
