* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: The anime suffers a lot from this. Some situations are not properly foreshadowed or even explained, so they come completely out of nowhere and/or don't make any sense to people not familiar with the video game. Case in point: [[spoiler:It's never explained why Ion dies if he reads the Planet Score. He just does. In the game, this was explained properly, specially in skits.]]

Something that needed to be added.
Added DiffLines:
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: The original Ion. He's was Van's partner in his plan to replicate the world, and he may even have been the one who came up with the plan to replicate the world in the first place. Even if he wasn't, he definitely supported it, and promoted Van to Commandant in order for him to have the political and military power needed to carry the plan out after his (Ion's) death.]]

** Many of the important place names are taken from the {{Kabbalah}} [[note]]Grand ''Chokhmah'', St. ''Binah'', ''Daat''h, ''Chesed''onia, Hod, ''Keter''burg, Malkuth, Qliphoth[[/note]]. Qliphoth, for instance, represents the evil spiritual forces, while Malkuth is the lowest of the sephirot, seperating them from the Qliphoth. Malkuth literally means "Kingdom".

** Now the first game in the series to make the ''[[Nintendo3DS other]]'' leap into 3D3D. * VideoGamesAndFate: The game features an extremely detailed prophecy that dictates the game's plot, called the Score. It's always correct, and there's an entire religion built around following it. Part of the overarching story is trying to escape it, because [[spoiler: it predicts the end of the world.]] The game is also extremely clever about letting the player think they've managed to ScrewDestiny, only to yank it back again and reveal that they've been following the Score's path all along.
