"Hi, remember the 80's? You know, when ripping off Star Wars was still cool?"
I'm just a Kingdom Hearts fan trying my best to fit in.

I remember when I saw the commercial for Kingdom Hearts on Disney Channel, I was a HUGE fan Disney, I wasn't even into Square Enix (they were called Squaresoft at the time) yet. When I finally got the game, I was mesmerized, all I could ever think of was Kingdom Hearts. I Idolized Sora for who he is, and I also remember having a slight crush on Kairi. Kingdom Hearts was my very first RPG so it's kind of an important game to me, and even though I never beat the game until 9 or 10 years later, I loved Kingdom Hearts for letting me be a truly amazing character, allowing me to interact with my favorite Disney characters, and introducing me to a new kind of gameplay, Kingdom Hearts was the reason I became a fan of Final Fantasy.
Disappearance And Return
For a time I was absent from Kingdom Hearts fandom, I don't what happened or why I stopped playing, but I eventually came back. But there were more times where I didn't play for a while; I was dealing with being bullied in middle school, seeking counseling for my neurodevelopmental disorder (Autism), then I had to focus on high school. But now I'm back, and more dedicated to Kingdom Hearts than ever.
Manga and Final Fantasy
I remember when I was younger I saw a girl reading a "Kingdom Hearts comic book", I assumed it was about Sora's youth because of the appearance he had in that book, looking back I probably should have asked her about it (we probably would've ended up being friends!), but I also remember doing something important. Years later, I was browsing through my high school's library and I actually came across the Kingdom Hearts Manga, the Tokyopop release. Naturally, I checked out the books and read them start to finish, then the Chain of Memories Manga, then some of the Kingdom Hearts II Manga (a couple of years after that I learned Tokyopop lost the rights to the Kingdom Hearts manga).
My Dad, back from a garage sale, brought my brother and me some video games; Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Ōkami, and the first Final Fantasy games I ever played; Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy XII. The Final Fantasy games blew me away, I had no idea they were so good, and even though I never got the opportunity to beat them, but I was still playing Final Fantasy games I came to own myself. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII was the very first Final Fantasy game I beat.
I Must Expand My Collection Or Die Trying
Thanks to the wonderful gift of Internet access, I was able to learn what I missed out on, and I became capable of online shopping. I decided I must try expanding my Kingdom Hearts collection my buying merchandise online or going to Texas Toyz.
