Why is everyone thinking that Hotaru is dead?? She’s not, she was just stuck in the past with his brother. Nobody said that she’s dead, that’s why at the end of chapter 180, Nodacchi offered to take Mikan to the past and search for Hotaru, so Natsume and Ruka volunteered to help her. They’re gonna time travel to find Hotaru! So let’s all hope that there’s gonna be a sequel!
I hear this as a common mantra in the Resident Evil fan community. If I had a dollar for every time I saw that line (or something resembling it) in my time in the Resident Evil fandom, not only would I be able to pay for all of my graduate school application fees—I probably would be able to afford full tuition to a two-year program.
But I must admit, this statement confuses me for a number of reasons:
‘Nezumi… Why won’t you come back to me? Why aren’t you by my side? I want to see that I’m still me, that I’m continuing to be the person I really am—I want to find it in your eyes. That’s the only way I can.
Nezumi—I miss you so much.’ - Shion, No. 6: Beyond
Don’t get my wrong, I still love Ada Wong. She will forever be my favorite RE female, but I gotta say Capcom doesn’t give two sh*ts about how they handle their characters, anymore. I can understand the need to branch out and make money, but they don’t even care what story writers they hire. Overall, I still like Ada in RE6, but her attitude, models, and voice actress of RE2 and RE4 will forever be my favorites. Well, that would be a given, considering the original writer of RE still had the series back then.
BE WARNED : I’m a bias Ada/Aeon fan. Also, these are my opinions. They’ll likely not match with everyone.
Totally agree on most of this – especially on the “Courtenay Taylor” subject. When I watched the interview where she states that she didn’t wanted “to be influenced” by Sally’s work I was appalled because, to me, it sounded not only as a poor excuse but also very much as arrogance.
