Favorite Cutscene: none other than the dance scene in Halloweentown. Everything about this cutscene made me release ungodly fangirl squeals as I was watching it for the first time. Sora talking about the fact that it was so hard to pick out a good present was cute enough. And then Goofy says, “As long as she can be with you, what else does she need?”
and then Sora goes and pictures them dancing and just fkjdsfodsj oh my shipper heart. Especially since he doesn’t try and picture how she would look after a year has gone by, but pictures her exactly as he remembers her.
And then Sora catches himself daydreaming and smiles and looks off and just everything about this scene is adorable okay.
Im not a huge SoKai fan but i kinda wish sora was happier when finding kairi, other than a quick hug he didnt seemed as excited as he is in this scene.
Specially considering how kairi played an important role in sora´s life in kh1, and he spent most of the games looking for her. No idea what will happen in kh3 and if their relationship will ever move on other than friends.
Sora wasn’t excited because he felt guilty.
He thought Kairi going back home was the right thing to do. He thought he was going to find Riku ASAP.
But chain of memories and 358/2 Days happened and he was asleep for a year. Kairi was left waiting for a year.
And then she ended up getting kidnapped anyway.
So Sora feels like he made the wrong decision, and starts to look away and say “I’m sorry” before Kairi runs across the room and hugs him because she knows he did his best and she’s just happy to see him. And when she says “this is real” that shows that Kairi has been dreaming of reuniting with him again only to wake up and feel heartbroken again. So that’s more guilt for Sora, even though I’m sure she didn’t mean to make him feel that way.
So he just hugs her tightly because he probably doesn’t know the right thing to say. And of course he’s not going to let “Ansem” go without thanking him because Sora’s not that kind of person. Plus, Sora even keeps his hand on her shoulder while he’s talking.
Last but not least, let’s remember this isn’t the first time Sora sees Kairi. The first time is when she calls out, “Sora! It’s really you!” And he looks up and calls out her name excitedly before getting dog piled by heartless lol so he was a bit busy.
