Seriously, emil and the tsundere girl are so annoying, i stopped the game after the 2nd village (maybe 4/5 hours, i was at my limit). I just couldn't support it anymore, i wanted to kill them, for real.
The only game with characters like this is Star ocean 4, the whole cast is a joke.
I actually managed to finish it, only because I wanted to see what was going on with the original cast. ToS2 was a terrible waste. Given the conclusion of the original game and the merged world that resulted, they could have really done something special.
