So, thinking over how each game has a few characters who are still alive at some point during the game but are unable to be saved by the time the main character has been tangled into the curse, I wanted to see which game people thought had the best of these characters and if possible why they are their favorites.

 

The reason I'm including Rina, her brother, Saki, and Kaori in this is because that was released alongside Spirit Camera and ignoring the fact that they're playing a video game on a 3DS system it could very well fit within the game's storyline, and because I think that was a very well executed piece of promotional material.

 

In what ways do you think they could continue to improve upon these types of characters going forward?

I've always had a soft spot for Yoshino. Her mental state in the first chapters really drives home how bleak and miserable and inescapable the manor is, and "You're not like me?" really stuck with me.

 

Second would be Fuyuhi. I think I just like that she approaches you for help, and Yuuri almost manages to save her; it makes the whole thing seem more personal.

In terms of build up, the novelist's group is my favourite for leaving behind so much found footagey stuff at the start.  Ghostly audio tapes, Koji's photo, hitodama, notes and visions - it's all good nightmare fuel.

 

As for character, it would be Fuyuhi for the reasons mid mentioned.  Her awkward pauses and silences makes you feel like she's constantly holding something back, like there's something she wants to say but can't.  I think it fits with Yuuri's mindset quite well.
