I originally thought he'd be the comic relief of the group, especially when the story would take a dark turn. Knowing his back story has given me a new level of respect for him. I liked how he worked hard to make an outer change in order to keep up with somebody else, although I don't think Noctis would have cared. I'm also glad this episode expressed that Kid Noctis wasn't stuck up due to royalty ties.I really enjoyed the second episode. Prompto didn't exactly strike me as a character with much plot behind him other than being the Prince's friend/ pretty boy of the group.
I am glad you are enjoying the episodes. I am just waiting for the one with the real MvP of FFXV ----> Ignis to get his shine.I am starting to like this animated series of Final Fantasy XV. It reminds me of The Last Order: Final Fantasy VII animated movie. The only difference is that this animated series has multiple episodes, which makes it quite interesting to watch. We get to learn more about the characters and see the activity they do together on their journey.

I think it's just the setting of when these episodes take place. I believe in FFXV, some locations will have a more realistic vibe to them, while others will be more fantasy based. I think because these episodes are focusing on who these characters are from an origin aspect, the reality route is probably going to be over-riding the fantasy aspect so that way the characters are taken more seriously. I feel the main cast are more reality based than fantasy. I don't know if that makes any sense. If it doesn't, I apologize.I for one am enjoying this series as well, although I do find it raises a lot of questions about the world of FFXV itself. I mean this looks like it literally takes place in Japan, with all the usual anime settings plus a few obviously fictional places and personalities on the side. Not inconsistent with the 'fantasy mixed with reality' idea the game has going, but I feel like the ratio of fantasy to reality is very different in the anime. That might be because it's an anime, or it might be because the game has more reality to it than the trailers have let on. I'm guessing it's probably the former, but I kind of hope it's the latter. As JRPGs like Persona have proven, putting a little fantasy in a lot of reality can make the fantasy all the more powerful.
Very curious to see how episode 3 sheds light on things
I want to assume this is just a different part of the world that the school setting falls on. I'll be sure to update the OP on the 7th when Episode 3 drops.Heck yeah, I'm waiting on Ignis too!! I also questioned why the heck the town looks like Japan. Are these the outskirts of Lucis? Or perhaps the kingdom has changed much from the older trailers which showed a sprawling metropolis? @_@ Or maybe Noctis studied in a different city...
She may very well had been bratty. However, I didn't find it annoying because there are a lot of kids around her age in real life that don't have a real good grasp of power, royalty, etc. etc. The critical thinking just isn't at that stage yet typically for a lot of young kids. To her, Noctis was just another kid.I found Iris to be unbelievably annoying. Srsly when she showed up to Gladio’s job n demands to meet the prince in person then throws a full-on, fist-waving, screaming temper tantrum until a sagely butler-type offers to see if the prince will accommodate her request for a meeting I was like WTF? Like none of that made any sense to me. Amongst other things, did that butler really think it was appropriate to bother the Crown Prince over some bodyguard’s bratty sister?
I somewhat understand your complaint. My take on it is that the Lucis royalty are not the douchy kind. They take the time to listen to people regardless of their status. I feel this reflects in the actions of both Kid Noctis, and his father.It wasnt just the stupid kid being all kinds of stupid in that situation you'd expect someone oh say SECURITY if not her big brother to send her peasant ass on her way. Its not just any workplace its the royal palace. You dnt have to think hard bout it its ridiculous to believe that a very young child would walk freely and alone into the palace and then walk away from the meeting room chasing a cat. So dumb. So very anime cliche.
