So, kids and demons? This sounds wholesome! Let's Play DemiKids!
The Dark version has a few more interesting fusion mechanics, so it gets my vote.
Dark version sounds better, so I vote for that.
Light Version for more Holy Type(Angel) demons or at least that's what I've heard.
Light Version first. THEN dark version.
I am a sucker for default names, so stick with Jin.
As am I. Jin.
I kept Akira's name the same when I played Dark Version so Jin!
I also say to go with Jin.
Who am I to disagree? Jin!
You'll eventually have three demons on the field and yeah occasionally enemy encounters have demons that appear after you defeat the ones you're currently facing.
They changed a bunch of demon names for space and kid appeal reasons- Aminoz is actually Ame-no-Uzume, for instance.
Akira and Jin, huh? I know one of the meanings for "Akira" is "bright," so what's the betting "Jin" can mean "dark?"
Well, Jin is in the Light version and Akira is in the Dark version, so I'm not sure.
