Randy and Lloyd should be togetherrrrrr :X nope. Scratch that. See the above? That’s the artbook. You should get one too for the art, if not for anything else. (:
As I said, I like LloydXRandy. Which no one else, apparently, does.
Neither does anyone like GintokiXMadao I guess. And yup, by right, Randy is supposed to be paired up with Mirielle. But she doesn’t want to say her true feelings and Randy is just run run run away~. At least Lloyd is upfront about what he feels, even though he embarrassed everyone in the process.
(“YOU ARE MY WOMAN.”) - Lloyd Bannings. Poor Noel. He doesn’t even mean it that way. ):
And look at the last pic. nuuuuuu ;-; it is hard to believe this is a legit drawing from the company and not some kind of fanart. So what, is it canon that Ellie becomes a sexualised object for the male gamers to drool over? It is okay if you draw her in a bikini. But to have her half-dressed…even Tio is given some respect in this regard. She never had to strip to gain fans. Nor does she need Lloyd to have some sort of personality. Hell even her buddy Jonas is a much more interesting character than Ellie ever was. Ellie used to have some personality in Zero. In Ao, she took the back seat all the way - unless you purposefully, as Lloyd, went to look her up in Missyland or asked her to join you in Missions and went to talk to her under the moon. She started to regain her personality when Mariabelle started going haywire - actually giving some sort of an opinion (of her own, not of politics or the country or what is good for everyone). Looking at this picture saddens me. I don’t use Ellie much in Ao because she just isn’t as good as Noel is in shooting. She is a lot better as a support character. Now other than the rare mother and father of Kea teasing in the story, which is so awkward I want to just bang my head on the wall and say “GO ELLIE GO FOR ITTTT SHOW HIM YOU LOVE HIM DEEP DEEP WITH A LOOK IN YOUR EYES LIKE ESTER HAS FOR RETSUYA”, there is so little to warrant that sudden confession at the end.
I’d rather go with the “Randy and I are really good friends” route. :X Because to me it is the most true route. Well, Wazy and Rixia routes will do too. Why? Because it actually feels like it will happen in real life. Maybe by a little stretch, Tio. For Noel, it feels like it is all embarrassment and jokes and no attraction involved. :/
For Rixia it is mutual understanding and her past that is bothering her. She hugged him at the end to express the overwhelming sadness that resurfaced out of the numbness of being Silver. No attachment required.
For Wazy, well you can see he confessed quite a few times (to Lloyd, of all people. You certainly are genderless). One can never be sure he is serious, because, hell he works as a host. He is supposed to give insincere sweet nothings. But hey, 2 muscle men were already following him around AND following his orders AND building their entire LIVES AROUND HIM. A small top in disguise as a bottom. Keh, he won the game of life and he won the hearts of muscle men. =_= I don’t think he really needed Lloyd’s heart.
For Randy, he tried and tried and TRIED to win the hearts of multiple women. But as the fortune teller says, he failed every single time. There is still Mirielle but for some reason he refused to admit it. The fortune teller did say that the 2 of them might advance into something more if they are willing (not in the near future though), and although Randy was suspicious at first (if you did, as Lloyd, as for a reading about your compatibility together), he did sigh upon hearing the reading and apologize to the other SSS girls that “well, looks like Lloyd’s going to be my everything.” He did, too, wonder if Lloyd was interested in him if you chose to drag him to ride the Ferris Wheel with you in Missyland. His reaction is normal, you know. And it really was a highlight to see his reaction. Wazy’s reaction isn’t but that’s just him being genderless. Well, he looks, feels, and reacts like a normal
girl guy would in real life, so I chose him all the way. It might be because I am a woman playing an RPG. But hey, even if you both aren’t together, your dialogue is so playful I cannot imagine Lloyd finding a better friend in life. And Randy, the escapist, can never escape from the very direct to-the-point Lloyd.
