Kingdom Hearts Primer - 358 Days / 2 - Episode 7 - Sensible Questions

Brandon and Sam get to finally talk about the plot important details. Roxas completes more missions.

While it is irritating how often the same lines are repeated over and over in these scenes almost verbatim, this is by far some of the most depth we get our of the characters in Kingdom Hearts. I absolutely love the conflict between Roxas and Axel in this scene.

In the end, the only thing Roxas ever really wanted was to understand who we was and use that knowledge to be his own person. His motivation, and how complicated his quest for truth and self-determination, give him the best scenes in the series.

For this reason, he's my favorite character in the franchise. I only wish more people could look past Kingdom Hearts 2's god awful into to see what I see in Roxas.
