Meanwhile Meisa has disappeared.
Now in Kyushu, we meet a one-eyed girl named Shinobu, but she doesn't want our help. Instead we follow a guy named Enjo to Sakura Island, where he's supposed to lead us to more of the five Spirit Rings we're seeking. Instead he betrays us and lets us get captured by some sort of demon plant.
|Screw you Enjo|
Fortunately, Shinobu arrives to save us.
Now we learn that Shinobu is in fact Princess Shino, who blinded herself for some reason (to increase her power or something, but that seems like a bad choice). Unfortunately her father and a close childhood friend have gone over to serving Jugon. We head to the Demon Castle to recover the Purple Ring, and that's where the friend (Magobe) and her father are.
|Happily ever after (without father, Magobe survived)|
|The foot is an effect from using the "shiki" power of the main character|
|Shi-kyubu, too powerful for us|
|Doo doo doo|
|Jugon, the boss of part 1|
Here's the text from the intermission:
With the destruction of the Tower of Light, Japan has lost the means for calling the divine storms. Kublai Khan, knowing this, prepares to invade Japan for a second time, preparing 140,000 troops and 4400 ships, much more of a force than last time. Hojo Tokimune prepares all of Japan's strength in North Kyushu to counter this. At the same time, Fudo and the others take Meisa and travel to China. Their destination is Kunlun, a legendary place of mystical illusions. But Kublai Khan's otherworldly servants are waiting to stop Fudo.
Hopefully I can finish the game this week, but we'll see.
