Kingdom Hearts II Chapter 61: Contrary Princess
Wayyy later than I would have liked due to busy days and rushing to finish 1.5 before 2.5’s release on Thursday, but here it finally is!
Summary: As Sora watches Demyx fade away, he starts to wonder whether or not Nobodies really do have hearts. Jiminy is worried, as if Sora is unable to fight both Heartless and Nobodies, then only Donald and Goofy could follow through.
They are attacked by Xigbar because Sora was making such a “serious face”, and proceeds to make remarks similar to those that are in the game. He sets Heartless after them, telling Sora that it’s thanks to him Kingdom Hearts has gotten as big as it is. Not wanting to use his keyblade, Sora starts using magic to fight, which then spurs Xigbar to get in on the action.
Suddenly, Kairi throws her keyblade from the opposite balcony and then calls it back (surprised it actually worked, with Riku praising her from behind). Sora is unable to see what’s going on, but Kairi puts on a brave face, saying that she won’t let Xigbar get away with anything else now that she’s arrived. Riku takes a shot meant for Kairi, and declares himself Xigbar’s opponent while telling Kairi to go help Sora.
Which she does with gusto, claiming that she’s come to save Sora (“IT’S THE OPPOSITE—!!”). Meanwhile, Xigbar is criticizing Sora, saying he isn’t reliable, but Riku shoots back that he knows nothing. Kairi spurs Sora to fight on with the Keyblade despite his reservations—does he just want to let the Organization get their way? Sora’s ready to fight once more—after all, says Riku, as long as they’re around, Sora’s invincible.

As always, Amano makes Kairi even more awesome.
But repeating my question from last chapter: why the hell does Riku still have Soul Eater???
