It's been a while for this topic to be discussed.

I just can't help but think that Gemini is so like Serah from Final Fantasy XIII.

oh my god other people acknowledge this series

i really dont think gemini is like serah. for one shes a cowgirl, two she has quite a few more issues going on than a dependency on a sister

...kinda

[up] Their sisters Geminine and Lightning are also the same. They share the same attitude.

Yeah yeah, same voice actress = characters are near identical. We get it. Now let's talk about other things. Like why the first four games were never localized.

Why is that?

because sega prolly thinks they're too japan for overseas audiences

which is why the only one to be localized is the one that takes place in NYC

I only discovered this through Project x Zone. At least other people will too.

You look happy, I can change that if you want.

Admittedly at first glance Sakura Wars looked incredibly boring to me. Then I read up on it,played X Zone and now it's interesting. SEGA doesn't use their I Ps all that well really.

I fell in love with this franchise thanks to not only the anime (or OVA, I don't remember) but the theme song for the first Sakura Wars is just fantastic XD

How do you guys knew the existence of this franchise?

I came across a playthrough of the fifth game. Then I came across the first anime, which was pretty good.

There is a Let's Play mentioned in the Sakura Wars page in this site, it's quite hilarious. It's for the original game, though.

Still baffles me that only now a thread for this franchise exist (or I just found it)

This series definitely needs more love.

and yes, that's a good impulse you got XD

I just can't help but comparing the fifth game to Final Fantasy XIII.

i fail to see the similarities

sakura wars 5 is a pleasant and fun romp though NYC in mechs while seducing all the ladies while FF 13 is

[up]Yeeeaaaaaah... not really the same at all.

Jun 15th 2013 at 9:43:38 PM

[up] If you need an example of what makes Gemini and Serah so alike, they have marks; the former has the Five Ring Mark and the latter has the l'Cie mark. By the way, their sisters are the same by personality.

Besides, SW 5 is more cheery, while FF 13 is somewhat depressing.

[up] Imagine if Gemini and Serah have this dialogue:

Gemini: Tell me, do you have a sister who is always angry and takes her anger out at your love interest?

Serah: Oh my god, yes!

Gemini: My sister... she tried to take over our shared body against my will when I given up on revenge. I was locked away in my head because of that.

Serah: That's easy for you to say. My sister threatened me because she found I had become a being a l'Cie, a being she was hunting down. I was turned into a crystal because of my purpose as an l'Cie has been fulfilled.
