About N ...

Rate this Entry
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.

    I completely agree with everything you just said. And I really don't say that very often.
    I knew exactly what was going to happen with the ending of BW, but it was still very sad. I have absolutely no idea how they're going to make Gen 6 even close to as good as these games!

    The BW ending really moved me too. N is the most relatable character I've ever seen in a video game, personally. It's also interesting how he comes off as a creeper before the last part of the game, and at the ending almost everybody falls in love with him! (before he disappears)

    I would like to see him in the anime, because it helps with visualizing a character, but I really hope they get him right.

    OH MY GOD, you just said everything I was thinking! That was a perfect way to summarize it! N's back story has such emotion and is so wonderful. I love it, just as I love everything about him. He is way too awesome!!! This blog entry was great! He is such a great guy, I bet we all wish he could be our boyfriends.... But then we'd all have to fight over him. It'll be like a host club, maybe. We could all keep him.
