Wow...this is actually the first RPG that's ever made me want to just throw the damn thing out the window in vexation. :-\ I thought I was done level grinding and could finally just sit down and beat the game get all the way to the final boss without issues and what do I discover? An evility that pretty much pumps his stats by 60~% for the first two rounds? Basically making his defense literally triple that of my thrice reincarnated, tier three, Shop Rank 10 gear bearing level 100 squad of 10? Good freaking crap on a stick... >.<;
And alas I am sadly amazed that there is a character I hate worse than Axel now; Fuka. Axel at least had a moment of cool near the end. Fuka has not changed at all. She shtick is still the same and they're riding it so hard it's blocked any form of character development. Not to mention it looks like they'll never explain what her "crime" was. I could make a guess but the fact that they're ignoring what is pretty much the most interesting plot hook in the whole game for the likes of a 10-minute dialog sequence where everyone
channels the spirit bomb ala love power to power up the giant lover operated mecha through the power of prayer while simultaneously bashing God...
Japanese storytelling has officially made my head hurt and I think Disgaea, even by it's amazingly weird standards, just tried to jump the shark...X-x
The writing in this game is freaking horrible. A couple days ago I went on youtube to see what the character specific endings are like, and they are completely horrid. Nothing even happens in the endings its just Val+character talking in a room.
As for Fuka, love her character design to death, but not her personality. And I refuse to believe Axel has even one cool moment in this game.
