Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:07 PM) 8 and 10 were my favourites. 10 mostly because I love Choushirous storyline so much.
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:09 PM) As much as I dislike the flashlight, I'm kinda anxious to play his chapter. I wanna know how his story ends up. As long as the kid's school stuff doesn't take too long, hoping to knock out chapter 9 tonight!
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:09 PM) My mind is still stuck on the end of chapter 8 though... Misakiiiiii T_T
Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:11 PM) I know what you mean. What I disliked the most about the flashlight was that it took too long to regenerate. It happened way too often that I had to stop in the middle of the fight and run in circles until I could fight again, lol.
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:16 PM) I think Chapter 9 is my favourite
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:17 PM) Not to be spoilery, but it has some really cool locations
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) argh that happened in the backyard part when all those ghosts regenerate! I couldn't keep up
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) and !!!!! new locations?!
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:22 PM) yes! be free, my child, you are no longer stuck in the hospitals
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:24 PM) Omggg... Do the kids really need to go get their school schedule tonight and meet their teachers....?  :que:
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:24 PM) definitely not, education isn't that important
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 02:25 PM) < dispenser of wisdom and good advice
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:28 PM) "It'll be a real adventure on the first day, guys! Discovering the unknown!"
Eisenalex : (16 August 2018 - 02:32 PM) Are they supposed to meet their teachers before they start going to school?
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:48 PM) Yeah. Their school is different and they don't get their class schedule until tonight. GRowing up I got mine in the mail so I could call my friends and see what classes we had together.
Chou : (16 August 2018 - 02:48 PM) So tonight we go, they get their schedule and their locker #'s, and get to go and see where their classes are. Which is nice since there's only like 3 min breaks to get from one classroom to the next
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 04:56 PM) I need to replay FF4 and visit all those beautiful unsetting cozzy rooms again.
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 05:07 PM) Listening to the soundtrack again I remembered this 8 bit version of Tsukimori song a friend from school made this for me and uploaded it on youtube. https://www.youtube....h?v=k0ZlvwD2Sws
GregZerO : (16 August 2018 - 05:08 PM) not sure if i ve shared it before  :thinking:
midwinter : (16 August 2018 - 05:12 PM) i don't think you have! that's awesome <3

I can't remember the last time we stacked characters against each other, so tada.  Of the characters listed here, who is your favourite?  Do you enjoy their story, camera abilities or character design?  Have a good chinwag about them here.

I voted Rei, because I prefer her story and look, more than the others. She doesn't look like a ''little girl'' like the others female protagonists. Also, it's because of her that I cried when I watched the end of Project Zero 3 ^^


I voted Choushiro, because I HATE Kei and I really love Choushiro's charism and face. The fact he's not as young as the others male characters explain because I like him, strangely. His design (face and clothes) is prettier and I love play as him when I play PZ4 because he's got the Spectral Lamp =)

Has to be Choushiro in the male category. Those rolled-up sleeves, that non-regulation haircut... *swoon* He departs a bit from the "kind, gentle and scholarly" pattern of the other male characters, and variety is nice. The closing scene with Sayaka in his final chapter gets me every time. Ore wa... ;-;


I went for Miku in the female category, though Ruka's not far behind. I like the little glimpses we get of Miku's hobbies and interests outside ghost fighting, and I like her combination of reserve and strength.

So I've been thinking about this since you posted it and I think I've finally decided. I'm going to pick Rei as my favorite female protagonist because she has the most backstory of the characters (I can't comment on Ruka because I haven't played the 4th game). She isn't just some schoolgirl who gets lost or follows someone into a haunted location and gets stuck. She's a person, with a job, with real life problems to worry about on top of the curse and hauntings. It also makes the most sense that she would do well with the camera since photography is her job. As for the male... Well I don't like Mafuyu and I don't know much about Choishiro so I'm going to pick Kei. He's your typical, stronger than a woman but weaker spiritual power bishonen. But I like that he's a folklorist who's interest in the manor and camera almost equal his want to save his niece. He wasn't asked to save her (4th game), and he isn't doing it because they're good friends (like Mafuyu and Takamine). He just wants to take care of his family.

I voted for Miku in the female category because I think she has a lot of depth, works really hard and cares a lot about other people.  Her family history is interesting, too, and she's one of the few people that can say they used a complete Camera Obscura, which is cool.  


It was hard to decide between Kei and Choushiro for the male category, but I went with Kei for his search for knowledge at old villages and shrines, which I'll be forever sad we didn't get to see, and the company he kept.  I like that trading crackly tapes of lullabies and hospital patients with Yuu is just something they did, and he's Misao's brother-in-law!  The stories he could tell.

I really wish you could put two at once for Miku's sake because I love her but..I think I have to go with Mio  here.  Her story is the most depressing and her devotion to her sister makes for a very engaging relationship and story.  You just want to see her succeed in regaining Mayu's trust and be able to live in happiness and she is such a good person and it's just heartbreaking what ends up happening.


If it counts I also would put Miku as tied with Mio because of her caring, hardworking, and optimistic personality.  On top of that she has a really sad story as well and it just tears you up when you see her giving up on life in 3 because of all she's been through and how much she's tried to remain cheerful.  Again I think they are both equal for different reasons but I can only pick one so yeah.


Favorite male protagonist is definitely Choushiro.  He's such a good man with a loving personality, he's constantly trying to help other people, and is suffering from unrequited love.  Also the plot twist with him near the end of the game is really sad and well done.  Plus he shows up to help Ruka save the souls of the islanders on Rougetsu Island.  Even after realizing he's dead he still is helping her.

My favorite protagonist is Yuuri only because Mio is only my fav with Mayu (they are two sides of the same coin).

Yuuri is brave, the only female protag who actually knew she has to deal with angry ghosts. She is willing to risk her life for 1. a friend (Hisoka), 2. people she doesn't actually know at all (Fuyuhi, Haruka...). She is the only female protag with long and untied hair! Her design looks really pretty. Ironically, even though she is very introverted, she is the one heroine whose feelings and opinions on life I know the most about and can relate to the most. 


My fav male, though... Mafuyu is meh, Kei is good but..., Choushiro I don't know and Ren is not easy to relate to. But if I had to decide it would be Ren I guess? He has a cool look, his relationship with Rui is adorable, but his interactions with others (other than Rui) is seriously lacking. When I played the game and saw the interactions between him and Yuuri, I thought they barely knew each other at all. Though such a handsome and masculine guy being afraid of women is funny xd. Even his whole storyline is about his fu*k-ups with two ladies  (even though it was Asou, technically) and trying to save his current "victim"(Rui). And he is also a loser apparently. But to me, he seemed more closed and poker-faced than scared with women.
