Director's Secret Report XIII
The Director's Secret Report XIII is a thirteen-part exposé featuring Tetsuya Nomura's secrets about the worlds, characters, and overall story of the Kingdom Hearts series. This report is included in the book "Another Report" that comes with the Limited Edition version of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+.
Part 1 - ABOUT THE WORLD OF KINGDOM HEARTS
I - In the Kingdom Hearts (hereon KH) series so far, two kinds of "Kingdom Hearts" have appeared, the "heart of worlds" and the "heart of people". Can you please explain their makeup?
II - Please explain the structure of and means by which one may travel between the worlds that serve as the setting of Kingdom Hearts.
III - Is there a possibility that blank points in time and settings that haven't been shown in detail such as the "Realm of Darkness" etc. will be depicted in the future? Was the beach that appeared at the beginning and end of KHII the "Realm of Darkness"?
IV - There are also many things regarding Castle Oblivion that remain mysterious. Did Organization XIII build that castle themselves, with Naminé the original subject of the experiments they conducted there? Please tell us the details of the experiments the Organization were carrying out. Also, was that pod that Sora entered something the Organization built in relation to those experiments? Are they the same pods in Twilight Town?
Part 2 - ABOUT THE KEYBLADE
V - We believe there are still many mysteries surrounding the Keyblade. As of now we have been able to discern three types of Keyblades: Keyblades of the hearts of worlds of light, such as the one Sora wields, Keyblades of people's hearts, such as the one Riku made from the hearts of the princesses, and Keyblades of the hearts of worlds of darkness, such as the one King Mickey obtained in the Realm of Darkness. We would like you to explain each of these.
VII - If Roxas was born and joined the Organization during the same period that Sora became a Heartless, then that means Roxas was using a Keyblade during the same period that Sora was using one in Castle Oblivion. Was he using Sora's Keyblade? It seems that Roxas was valued within the Organization for being a Keyblade Wielder, and surely it would have been handy for them to have Sora, another hero of the Keyblade, gathering hearts. In that case, why did the Organization try to defeat Sora?
Part 3 - ABOUT THE CHARACTERS
VIII - When you defeat Heartless, what happens to the hearts they have stolen? Also, when Nobodies and members of Organization XIII are defeated, do they return to their original forms?
IX - Now we will ask about the main characters in general. Why can Sora turn into the AntiForm? Why was Riku chosen by the Keyblade? What of Kairi's memories of Radiant Garden? How are Roxas and Naminé different from other Nobodies? And, while Sora and his friends were gone, what happened to their school, their friends, and their parents?
X - We believe that in KHI Ansem (Xehanort) abandoned his own heart. However, Organization XIII, led by Xemnas (Xehanort), sought to regain their hearts. Is this because the two of them - split as Heartless and Nobody - became different people with separate intentions? Also, despite the fact that Xehanort, who serves as their base, was meant to have lost his memories, in one of the scenes added to this title, there was a part where he insinuated something about the past. Does that mean his memories have come back? Or does it mean his memory loss was a lie all along?
Part 4 - ABOUT THE KEYBLADE WAR AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS FOR KINGDOM HEARTS
XII - Birth by Sleep, the new secret movie added to KHIIFM, was extremely significant - and some of the people who appeared seemed familiar. Even if you can't give details, can't you give us any hints? Also, do the three who appeared in armor have any connection to Xemnas, who appeared in similar armor in the last battle?
XIII - Lastly, is this the last adventure for Sora? You've said that you have the end of Kingdom Hearts in your head, but will Sora be there? And, please give us a hint concerning the future developments of the series within the limits of what you can say at present.
