Okay, well the old videogame websites from a long time ago have just disappeared because of the modern age, and like, they're already years old and have become a sort of PS2 generation of classics. But the official JP website is still up... http://www.tecmo.co....zero2/index.htm I can't read Japanese to find my answers lol.
I think I used to have this topic up and I searched everywhere just to be sure that I wasn't making a double topic too but I can't seem to find it. I think it was discussed already sometime in my college years before we got this forum up, thanks to some moving.
What struck me before when I used to browse the official US website of Fatal Frame II: The Crimson Butterfly -- I think it was 2005 or 2006 since I remembered that time -- in the character bio page, it's said that Mio is supernatural, while Mayu is paranormal. Or was it the other way around? I can't seem to remember.
And WHAT I CAN'T REALLY REMEMBER IS THAT, uh... actually, what these really mean. I think I've looked it up earlier through existing sites from the google search, but apparently, none of these mentioned about Mio and Mayu being the supernatural and paranormal twins. Except, I mean, only one instance is in here: http://fatalframe.wi...ki/Mayu_Amakura
She is the younger twin sister of Mio Amakura. The two share a very close bond, however, unlike her sister, Mayu is highly susceptible to the paranormal.
Um what. But in the website, I remembered it clearly saying something about one being supernatural, the other being paranormal. Not sure if it's themselves or their 6th sense. I don't think they've really explained that well, leaving it all vague...
I believe midwinter had discussed way back then about these meanings, but well it's been too long and I can't still remember anything from this.
Now if you were to differentiate supernatural and paranormal, then ... well, aren't they almost the same thing? Even looking it up in the dictionary seems to have similar definitions.
But would that mean it's just because Mayu has far more potential than Mio? Or their 6th sense are on a different level?
However if I'm correct, do accidents or near-death experiences just give them an opening to seeing ghosts and stuff? Well, we did have Yuuri get that when she was younger, but at that time she almost died. And the others... um got it from their parents? For Mayu's case, she accidentally fell down. Maybe this is the conclusion that the US website is a little rubbish and that while Mio can sense ghosts, they are more likely to attack Mayu because of um, I don't know? ........... Whatever? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
P.S. I forgot this lol
She has a very strong sixth sense, but she has a low resistance to ghosts. Thus, she is often used by spirits as a medium.
Also, I can't seem to find any official sources?
