About N ...

Those who know me around bmgf will know that I like N a lot, and that I had been complaining why he isn't in the anime when he and Team Plasma are so important in the games.
Yes, I was going to beg to the anime crew to please include them in the anime if I had to go to the extreme.
But not anymore. Maybe Team Plasma could be in the anime... but I don't know about N...
I got back to my Black Version which I almost gave up because of the difficult gameplay (I had trouble leveling up) - but it held unexpected easy turns and surprises for me, and made me speed through during the last three days or so. (I guess it couldn't be too difficult, considering it's for all ages.)
Just two hours ago... I saw the grand finale of N's story, and I dropped whatever I was holding to just clap my hands with my jaw dropped open. Honest. I couldn't even speak. When the credits started to roll, I CRIED.
I'm so glad I hadn't been spoilered before... otherwise those wave of emotions would've never come.
Seriously, what a wonderful story! What a wonderful gameplay! What a wonderful finale!!
Yes, I'm being dramatic here. But I had never been moved by a game before. N's story itself was touching - I feel bad for only have liked him for his looks and love for pokemon up till now. Not only N himself, but the depth of the whole plot and story Black and White has... I shall be proud of having played this game.
N's whole backstory, his past... when I looked around in his playroom, I could actually feel unexplainable emotions. And I was awed at how a kid's room could contain so many untold stories. The train tracks? The skateboard? The basketball? It was creepy, but I couldn't help but stare at the playroom for a long time.
And his farewell monologue? I did not want to press the A button - I just didn't want the story to progress any further. We've had many other villain bosses leave without a trace in previous games, but none of them ever gave the same impact as N had done. I didn't want to say goodbye to him - seriously.
If N were to be in the anime, would he be depicted well? I'm starting to have doubts. No way. The writers would never be able to handle such a deep character in the same show with stupid kiddy Ash. Yet, if he's done right, I'm betting that the show would get incredible view rates and top all anime of the year.
But then again... I don't want N to be ruined in the anime. Maybe it's best if he's left alone to be remembered as the most memorable game villains of all time.
