As I’ve now played Tales of Zestiria myself (still need to finish the final battle however), I decided to list some cute and fun facts I’ve discovered while playing.
Mikleo cuts Sorey’s hair. I mean, that’s so cute. Sorey has his own personal boyfriend hairdresser.
Sorey is not allowed to touch Mikleo’s hair, due to an ‘’incident’’. I wonder what the incident is, honestly.
Mikleo makes the most delicious snacks. He’s even dubbed as ‘’Sweet Master Mikleo’’.
Mikleo can’t cook well. Apparently, since he’s a water seraph, he’s horrible with timing and lets food burn easily.
Mikleo is afraid of dogs, which Sorey makes fun of.
Sorey called Mikleo a babe.
Sorey adapted to the water Armatus the most easily, and it’s implied that this is because of his bond with Mikleo.
They are both stubborn dorks when it comes to fights with each other.
Sorey’s favourite snack is Mikleo’s soft serve ice cream.
Mikleo found the Shepherd’s glove Sorey is wearing, and gave it to him. I’m not 100% sure it was Mikleo who found it, but him giving it to Sorey is sweet enough.
Mikleo trains in secret. He learned some new artes Sorey didn’t know about, and it’s revealed he practises at night. He also had some training sessions with Edna.
Sorey is very affectionate towards Mikleo, in my opinion. I wish the anime would’ve shown that more.
Mikleo often gets teased about his and Sorey’s height difference, and he’s very sensitive about it.
In addition to this, it’s heavily implied Mikleo chose a staff as his weapon to make up for their height difference.
Sorey is seen sleeping with Mikleo in his lap in the ending credits.
Mikleo can carry Sorey on his back. I think that’s pretty impressive, considering their height difference and Mikleo’s small figure.
When Sorey lost his resonance, the first one he called for was Mikleo, and he called him twice.
They’re both dubbed ‘’Ruin Geeks’’, or ‘’Geek Kings’’, especially by Rose and Edna.
Lailah is the biggest shipper, but I think everyone already knew that.
I’m so glad I bought the game, and I’m thinking of buying the English release of the manga as well. I’ll definitely start writing fanfictions about these two soon, but I’m busy with my final exams currently, so it’ll have to wait.
