I am back with a quote, my lovely readers! As of this moment, we are a month and a week out from the 20th anniversary of Kingdom Hearts! If I’m being honest, I’m getting a bit antsy to see what Square Enix has in store for us, because I have been waiting for this ever since Mr. Nomura said to look out for this date, since he had something big coming. Y’all, I can hardly wait! But for now, let’s take a look at another Kingdom Hearts quote…
“Once we set sail, it’ll be great!” – Kairi (Kingdom Hearts)
This is one of my all-time favorite Kingdom Hearts quotes. I literally almost made it my senior quote in my school’s yearbook (I ended up settling for “may your heart be your guiding key”). This quote is spoken near the beginning of the game in one of the most nostalgic scenes, where Sora and Kairi are sitting together the evening before they plan to leave Destiny Islands. They’re a little nervous to go, but also excited. To me, this quote is more than just Kairi expressing her excitement over sailing away from Destiny Islands. I feel like it’s setting up the series as a whole, because instead of getting to leave Destiny Islands on a fun trip the next morning, the islands end up getting taken by the Darkness, with Riku joining it and Kairi going missing. Whether or not they got to go on their little trip, they set sail on an adventure. To me, this quote marks the beginning of their journey.
What do you think about this quote? Let me know in the comments below! And as always, God bless and have a wonderful week!
