Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
Marluxia: So you’ve finally come, Keyblade Hero
Marluxia: Welcome to Castle Oblivion
Marluxia: I am Number 11. of Organization XIII, Marluxia
Marluxia: I am the leader presiding over this castle
Marluxia: There’s nothing I want to fight over, I just want to borrow your power
Marluxia: Ugh, What are you doing? Stop that!
Axel: Now to gather up a report… Such a bother
Axel: Castle Oblivion was destroyed by the Keyblade Hero
Axel: As for the members, all of the ones above me were annihilated
Axel: And now for my plan… Hurry back and eat some ice cream
Axel: I wonder if Roxas will be there…
Xigbar: Ohoh man… This world is humid!
Xigbar: Let’s get this over with before my armpits get sweaty
Xigbar: What an idiot
Roxas: Annihilation… Something that’s been erased huh…
[Flashback to Chapter Three]
Xigbar: One of the guys that went to Castle Oblivion was annihilated
Saix: I heard according to the Dusk report he was wiped out
Xigbar: Uhuh, you disappear
Xigbar: After that, nothing’s left
Roxas: Is it mean… we couldn’t meet again?
Xigbar: You got a problem with something?
Xigbar: Let me put it to you straight
Xigbar: Half the members have been annihilated, but with you and Poppet around, it’s not a problem
Xigbar: I’m talking about Xion, kiddo
Xigbar: (What’s it matter anyways?)
Xigbar: Right now she’s collecting hearts… You better give it your all too, seeing as you are using the same Keyblade
Xion – In top shape on her own
CHAPTER 4: There’s a problem
Original Plan: Nomura Tetsuya
Xion: Strange…I’m moving my body on my own
Xion: Mission complete…
Xion: The Keyblade…
Xion: The same as Roxas
Roxas: “You got a problem with something?”
Roxas: Xigbar’s mechanical stare was piercing right through me
Xigbar: Concentrate, kiddo
Roxas: It’s just… I do have a problem
Roxas: We’re friends
Roxas: Wha… What is this?
Roxas: My head…
Xigbar: What’s going on, kiddo!?
Roxas: What’s happening…?
Xemnas: 6 days have passed since you came here
Xemnas: The time has come
Roxas: Sora? I’m not Sora, who are you?
Xemnas: My name is －
Xemnas: Is he awake?
Saix; It’s a circumstance of the plans at Castle Oblivion
Saix: At this instant Xion is collecting hearts
Saix: Well then, I’ll be off, Lord Xemnas
Xemnas: So you’re still asleep…?
“What in the world do those words mean?”
