Aikoto Week Day 4 prompt: How do you feel about the different depictions of Aikoto throughout the games, movies, musicals, manga? Which do you think embodies your ideal relationship the best? Are there any ways you can think of to improve upon them?
For me it has to be the original games and from there all of the spinoffs and different adaptations. The original game did not include the Aeon Social Link and yet Aikoto was still relevant and a natural part of the game playthrough.
Scenes like above feel more like nice additions , moments the game didnt bog us down with so we could focus on the plot , but all the other adaptations spoil us with! Its so nice and constantly makes me smile. From the Movie hug , Drama CD flirting , FES social link , etc etc. etc. It feel more like getting additional snapshots of things that happened in the original game that were not included so the pacing wasnt off , and as an Aikoto fan I feel very lucky.
If there was anything to improve , Its during one of the later social link scenes AIgis makes a comment about how you cant kiss her and hug her like other girls you have romanced (during the game or prior to game) and therefore she is less desirable as a romantic partner :’( The game gives you the option to hug her. ….. but not kiss her. Like damn , why deny me cute robot kisses Atlus????
