Kairi and Namine by Iceling Kairi and Namine by Iceling
It's Kairi and Namine! I am super creative with titles. >_> Btw, I originally drew these to make myself bookmarks, which is why there is almost no variation in poses. This will be the case for the rest of the KH series, and after that I have no excuse except laziness. XD

So, it seems to be the consensus among my KH-loving friends that Kairi is boring and useless while Namine is a very appealing character. Is this how everyone feels? Am I the only crazy who likes them both equally? Just wondering. ^^



KH (c) square enix

Personally, I like Kairi morte than Namine because I think she has a bigger personality and I don't know why but from the second I started playing KH she has been my favourite character.

Wow, I don't think I've met anyone else who likes Kairi better. XD Yeah, I think she's great too, although I wish we saw more of both of them. Not that I don't love the boys, but poor Kairi has had practically no screen time throughout the games. :(

Thanks so much for the fave! ^_^

You're welcome. Yeah, Kairi's meant to be a main character but she's barely in KH these days :(

I think the hate mostly comes from the yaoi fans. But Naminé would "get in the way" of yaoi too, so... I have no idea. :(

I like them both, though. :D

Yeah, that's true. I never understood that. I mean, I have nothing against yaoi, but it’s not like Nomura is going to wake up one morning and go, “Shoot, I just realized that Sora and Riku are meant for each other! If only I hadn’t created that Kairi girl.” So she's not really getting in the way...
I don't know, maybe I'm crazy. XD I like everyone in KH. ^_^

They're both really cute :aww:
I never got the Kairi hate either. I think she's pretty vital to the game's plot based on the KH games that I've played.

Aww, thank you! ^^
Yeah, she IS half the reason Sora goes to all these places. XD I just don't know why anyone bothers hating her. You'd think she'd killed somebody. (On the other hand, maybe that would boost her popularity. People love Sephiroth. XD)

Hm.. Well, Kairi reminds me of Sakura from Naruto *Shippuden*.
She's one of the people who keep Naruto going, like Kairi with Sora, even though she might not do much.
/shot for using a Naruto reference ; u ;

I don't get Sakura-bashing either. ^^; I mean, I realize that she's immature and shallow before Shippuden, but if all the characters were Naruto, the series wouldn't be too interesting, would it? I think you need support characters in any series. (If you're going to be shot, then I'm going down with you! XD)

That's so true!! Kairi and Sakura just don't show up that much, but it doesn't mean they're useless.
(xD)

Oh, and I forgot to mention the art. DX
That is so cute!! c:

I like both of them! It's sad that people hate Kairi =( I mean, she has to be stuck at home while Sora and Riku get to go save the world, but it's not her fault! Nomura needs to let her do more; people think she's boring because she hasn't really done anything. But she's so cute!

I know, poor Kairi. Hopefully she'll get more of a role in the future games, though I'm not sure if it will change the general opinion of her or not, at this point. :( Yeah, every time I watch her cutscenes, I'm always saying, "Aww, she's so cute!" And then she's gone, and we don't see her again for a very long time.

I wouldn't say Kairi is useless, it's just Nomura has never even attempted to use her enough. lol I have no idea why the people bash the character when it's the creator who makes them a certain way. She is, as Saix said, the fire that fuels Sora. She's not always in the action, but she does keep Sora going. So no, you're not the only one who loves them both XD.

But enough with my sleep-deprived rant lol. I think this is sooooooo adorable!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I almost wish that she would get more screen time, but I think that might cause a Xion scenario, where people hate her more for that. XD

Thank you so much! ^_^

I like Kairi and Namine equally. I really don't understand the hate base that Kairi has sometimes. D:

I don't get it either! ^^; I always feel like I missed something when people start talking about how they wish Kairi wasn't in the game or they wish Sora would've just left her without a heart. XD Then again, I can only think of one or two characters from any series that I actually dislike, so maybe I'm a bad judge. >_<

And thanks! ^^

I think it's because some people think she's useless. But how are you suppose to do stuff when you're like an empty shell and can barely move your body? And in KH 2, I felt she did her share in helping, especially not just staying on the island sulking. I can't think of a character I didn't like in some aspect. XD

Oh you're welcome!

Iceling Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2012
Yeah, and if we're being fair, Riku (though I love him dearly) was far less helpful to Sora's cause in KH1 than Kairi was. I mean, at least she wasn't trying to stop him. XD But in KH2, I thought she did fine, considering she just got a keyblade and then had to fight immediately. If that were me, I would have ducked behind Riku and made him fight them. XDD

*Nods* Exactly. Kairi and Riku both redeemed themselves in KH 2, and continue to do so. Hahaha I'd be too busy asking Riku where he had kept that keyblade. He just randomly pulls it out. XD Oh Riku.
Reply
:iconiceling:
Iceling Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012
True! I never even thought about where the keyblades go. Maybe they shrink down like pokeballs. >_> Personally, I want to ask Riku how he managed to go through most of the second game blindfolded without walking into walls. XD

Well I always just accepted that the keyblade wielder summoned it with their heart and then when they're not using it, it returns to their heart? Though I still don't understand how Riku suddenly got that flowery keyblade for Kairi to fight with. XD Hahaha me too! Then again I saw a Riku cosplayer at a con with a blindfold on and he walked around fine. It must be really thin fabric that is easy to see through but others still can't see that individual's eyes.

:iconiceling:
Iceling Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012
Yeah! I mean, how is Sora's heart so special if Riku's can mass-produce keyblades? XD
Ah, I see. Wish I'd had some of that fabric for my Halloween costume in seventh grade. I had this black sheet fabric over my face with tiny holes cut in it for my eyes, but they kept slipping and my friends had to guide me around everywhere. ^^;
