Alright, I know I've made jokes that Takeru & Kouga are alike & they are, they're both dotting swordsmen, they both had similar childhoods, they both have giant fucking swords & ride horses. They were both isolated at a young age & had to train to live up to the expectations placed on them. But Kouga & Takeru are two different people, as well as characters. Yes, they both have similar attributes that drew me to playing them, but they are also v. different. & the reason why I decided to app Kouga in the end was because A) I was told that I played him differently than I played Takeru & B) I noticed in the end that, that was true. Anyway, let's continue on.
