While Sora sleeps, Namine rebuilds his memories, and Roxas lives the life of a normal boy. Roxas too, has lost his memories, but as the time of Sora's awakening approaches, they begin to return, even while his constructed world falls apart. Once Sora emerges, he and his friends discover that a new enemy threatens the worlds. Nobodies, and the purpose of the mysterious Organization XIII are finally revealed in the main canon. Kingdom Hearts II is an excellent adaption of the game. It has all the excitement, and the heart of the story, and even incorporates some of the battle mechanics. As an additional touch, side characters get more face time. The art style is different, but works well because it can switch from its soft, heartfelt style, to a more wacky expressive one that fits the Disney comedy. The pacing is especially good, and the author has more space to explain some of the more confusing twists. Like the game, the manga does a fair job of creating a standalone story, however because of all the connections, and complicated plot twists, it is highly recommended to read the series in order: Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days, and Kingdom Hearts II. This is not only important for understanding the story and its symbolism, but to experience the powerful feelings from its themes about the heart, memory, connections, trust, etc. The Kingdom Hearts series is part Final Fantasy, and part Disney, and both are masters storytellers with these themes. Due to this collaboration, it will appeal to a broad range of ages.
