Now that I have downloaded DFII and watched it at my own pace, I can see/understand more of what is going on. So here's my analysis. (Before I start I would like to say that I have only played FFX, X-2, and KH 1 & 2. I haven't played the previous FF games or any DOA game, but I know who the characters are and overall story. So I am biased toward the FF girls. Oh and there are spoilers ahead.)

I love how aggressive/bold Rikku is in fights. Mindlessly charging toward the fight (kind of my style of playing in fighting games, I lose a lot that way), and again charging Rachel when she is first introduced. She displayed similar characteristic in DFI, so I like how you gave them different personalities. I've said this before but she makes a very good partner.

I was going to say that Yuna seemed to be lacking, and doesn't really do much on her own. But as I rewatched it I noticed that she really looks after Tifa. Covering for her when she gets hit by Kasumi and staying with her when she low exhausted and eventually pulling out the potions. The team really has good chemistry, Rikku seems to look after Yuna, and Yuna after Tifa.

Tifa doesn't really need to do anything. She could just stand there and everyone (viewers) would be happy. I love how after she drank the potions, she added spells to her hits as if she didn't care and had mana to burn. Again, love the personality.

I was wondering if the falling battle, especially the part with the falling pieces was inspired by Advent Children. Also, I love Rikku's Xiaoyu move (the jump kick, kick, flip). She's one of the characters I frequently use when I play Tekken and it was cool to see it. Also I kind of saw some Taki moves in Kasumi and Ayane, Sophitia in Rinoa, and a bunch of Tekken moves in Tifa (heh Hwoarang combos). I also liked how you synced the action with the music (or vice versa), especially when Tifa cast haste and at the end with the strong beats.

Then I started think about the individual fights:
Ayane VS Rikku
Kasumi VS Yuna
Hitomi VS Tifa
Rachel VS Rinoa
?? VS Kairi

I want Rikku to win her fight, just because she is my favorite character in this series. And it would kinda be a downer to hold a fan costume contest, making her more of a favorite character and then have her lose. lol

Yuna's fight, I could see Yuna losing. I personally like what Kasumi has contributed to the fight (saving ppl with the "teleport" and taking the hit for Ayane so she can finish her move) than what Yuna has done for hers. Actually not only taking the hit, but teleporting away in case the move needed more time, very smart of Kasumi. The only way I could see Yuna winning is that at some critical point in the match she pulls out something spectacular, something like Floral Fallal (the 3 things above her kinda reminds me of Hitsugaya's bankai). It would be kind of cool to see Yuna summon something.

In the Tifa/Hitomi battle I think you're trapped into having Tifa win because she's a fan favorite. But then again you hate predictability.

In the RvR battle, I don't really have an opinion since the characters were just introduced, but it should be a pretty interesting match-up. And I'm not very familiar with the characters' fighting style.

Then Kairi, I LOVE that Kairi is in this. Admittedly it was random, but the good kind. I thought it was cute that Kairi thought she could take on Rachel at the end. It would be cool to see her switch forms (Valor, Wisdom, Master, and Final). Oh, imagine Anti-Form Kairi! :D

Finally, I thought about how all this would end. I wonder if they will eventually all get together again for a final showdown. If that is the case I wonder if the they will fight and slowly kind of find each other or if the victor of matches would just drag the unconscious person to the final battlefield. I wonder how you can justify reviving the defeated DOA fighters, since FF characters can just cast Life or something. But whatever you do I'm sure it'll slide. I struggle to see how this will ultimately end with one team as a the victor. If I were to pick one team, it would be the FF team (cuz I'm biased). But even if I wasn't, I think the FF series is better as an RPG than DOA is as a fighting series. Especially since they sold out with Beach Volleyball. So I think gamers/viewers would be happier if the FF team won, I know I would (heh heh). I thought of two ways this could end:

One is have have the teams down to 2v1 or 1v1, the other people are unconscious around the battlefield. And before the final deciding strike (that would make one team clearly the winner) is dealt she freezes and helps her opponent up. Then everyone kinda slowly gets up, teams help each other out. Then somehow show them picking new teams then they scatter, kind of starting how DF1 started with Kasumi and Ayane chasing Yuna, but different (as if these girls get together weekly and beat the crap out of each other). Roll credits.

The other way I see this ending is as they fight the ground starts to shake, or something happens that they all sense and BAM. Something crashes and out of the smoke walk Ryu (Street Fighter), Dante, Snake, Link, Agent 47, Scorpoin, Vincent, etc... And they kinda join forces against a greater enemy, men. Sort of how the DOA movie ended (ya, I watched it) or Haloid (how M. Chick and Samus teamed up against the aliens). Heh, it would be funny to see all of the characters do a choreographed dance as a bonus. LOL.

Anyways, that's all I have to say. Thanks for reading and indulging my speculations. And yes I am aware that I am a dork. But aren't we all? If you read this far you definitely are...heh.

though I hadn't played the FF game with the angel wing chick the animation on her wings was a bit choppy. That's really the only thing I can nit pick about.

words cannot express how awesome it was seeing Rinoa drop in with a badass Blaster Edge and even badder ass gunblade which I cannot resist adoring. Honestly, I've come back to that thing a hundred times over.

I must also add that those patches you put in did enough justice for now. I saw a whole lot of little detail, and I am impressed. This one jumped up severely in so many levels.

Congrats man, you have done extraordinarily well :D

I didn't see Kairi coming AT ALL.

Nice suprises!

The Keyblade she landed with looked a little odd though. Maybe that was just me.

Needless to say you keep yourself busy with Dead Fantasy for alot more time then i'd have though. Not that i don't mind. ^_^

You've really outdone yourself. I don't think anyone was expecting just how crazy it continued to be. It's like a snowball that just kept rolling with more and more flash bang action and beautiful choreography. And all the more amazing, you do all this just for the fans. That's some real dedication. Oh yes, and -excellent- choices of music this time around. Thanks Firia, for helping him out!

So manny types of battle stages :faint: and the wings, they where done so well. But i noticed in the end it was a 5 on 4 fight. Who does Kairi pair up with?
I noticed that your gunblade was featured as well, stunning job on the detail. My own Grindnotomb doesn't even compare ^^;. Well, looks like i still have more to learn and practice before i can come close to your level. I'll be awaiting your next stunning piece of work ^_^.

Impressive! You did a good job of stacking scenarios and periodically upping the ante (my favorite part was the sliding fight down the side of the temple... with pillars! Least favorite part would probably be Rinoa's wing animation). It will be interesting to see what you'll do to top it.

You're definitely making an impression on people, so I don't doubt your work will pay off in due time. Keep it up!

I was wondering since you added Kairi on the FF team even though she isn't in the FF series....you could expand to Squaresoft VS Temco. Then my mind went to console wars....like having the Lara Croft replace Yuna, keep Rikku (because she's my favorite :p), and maybe have a Tekken girl replace Tifa (I know, blasphemy...replacing Tifa). then on the Xbox team, have the DOA girls, you could probably justify having Master Chick, and
The Nintendo team would have Samus, Joanna Dark, and Zelda? or a female character out of the Brawl lineup.

But that's a whole new project that would be kinda pointless for you to make after DF is over. Ok brain-fart over. Haha.

SPOILER WARNING, GOD DAMN LACK OF EDIT BUTTON IN DA COMMENTS.

A plethora of FF girls to choose from and Kairi gets the nod. I might sound a little bitter because I'm not the biggest KH fan, but it seemed like an opportunity gone to waste. For example, a better match to Rachel's scythe could have been, say, Freya's spear, or giving a XII character some big ol' sword. As she is, Kairi has essentially become a second Rikku.

As I said, I got the feeling that any success on the part of Team DOA near the end seemed to be out of desperation than skill. That and the FF characters are taking the fight to a level far outside what anyone else outside the four already present can hope to match, especially god-mode Rinoa. In a sense I feel you may have painted yourself into a corner, especially seeing as Kairi has found herself without a dance partner.

Either way, despite these points, you have put together a brilliant piece, and best of luck in the future.

the main reason there wasnt an extra DoA girl is that there arnt manny of them with weapons. when Kairi wakes up after being teliported she will be greted by the final member of the DoA Cast.

Monty cant deside on Christie, an assasin from Doa, With a Knife attached to a wire.

or Mei Ling, a chinese martial arts master, with a battle staff. he couldent deside soon enough. Kairis role isnt over, her aponent just hasent been chosen.
