I went ahead and rented Kingsglaive so I'm gonna watch that thing before I start XV. I guess I'm wondering more about Brotherhood. I like anime but that thing just looks bad. I don't like the drawing in it and it just looks like a cheaply made webseries for god knows what reason. On the other hand, it's really not that much content so if it really enhances the XV experience, I'll sit through it.
If Brotherhood is recommended, should I watch that before or after Kingsglaive?
Finally got done watching both and ready to start FF15! Did anyone watch Kingsglaive in theaters? I don't know if it's because I saw it on my 32' but man, it's the most expensive looking CG movie I've ever seen. I was reminded of the fucking balls on Square-Enix. I've been wondering why the hell they would make this thing and watching it, the answer is "because we can, because we're Square". Wow, it's almost a fuck you to the haters. Surely a financial disaster but god damn, I respect the pure audacity of the thing.
If anyone's in the same boat as me, watch both. Actually ended up enjoying Brotherhood more which is surprising 'cause I went in ready to just trash the thing. What I like about it is that it didn't need to be cool, it was ok with being lighthearted and silly. What's annoying about the costly CG stuff is that it has to be so cool all the time, it gets quite tiresome. With Kingsglaive, I would suggest reading the synopsis before hand so you know what's going and just be able to enjoy the visuals of it. The way it's told seems a lot more complicated than it is and trying to figure out what's going on can be frustrating. Halfway, I read what was going on and I was able to enjoy it a lot more.
I will say, now I'm freaking hype to play this thing but all this stuff should be in the game. This is probably the only series I'd go out of the way to watch 3 and half hours of content before even starting the game but it got me wondering about all the other cartoons out there that came out alongside their respective games like Dead Space Downfall. Were any of them good?
