Sequelitis aside, there's one thing that seriously bothered me throughout the game...what the hell happened to Zeppel? Extreme Flanderization doesn't even begin to describe the drastic change in personality he's undergone here. In the first game, he seemed to be fairly competent as a teacher, and was understandably hesitant when shit hit fan towards the end of the game. Now, he's so much of an Extreme Doormat that he rivals Vayne...and at least Vayne's case was justified. I dunno. Maybe I'm just being nitpicky, but I actually liked Zeppel a lot in the first game, so it's kinda annoying to see him become so weak-willed all of a sudden, with little explanation as to why.
