Well the darkness of this sequel is compensated with cute and innocent looking chibi art style. We have beloved characters who died and a villain with no soul who is just fighting for his survival. Well at least we have a happy and saccharine ending.
Have you guys heard of a game called Final Fantasy Type-O, it seems like it had a lot of bloodshed in it. This game was about sending children to war, so that is pretty bleak I would say. I think this game was only available in Japan, but you can now buy it in the states?
