Story & Themes
The key to all this is Oliver's mother, who--technically speaking--still lives in the second world. However, she is in grave danger, and Oliver must embark on a quest to defeat the evil that has imprisoned her.
Ni No Kuni is, at heart, a story about emotions and helping others. Oliver must take responsibility for his mistakes, and save the world while he's at it.
The game is a Studio Ghibli production, so fans of Hayao Miyazaki's works will undoubtedly find something to enjoy in it. Miyazaki himself, however, was not involved in the project.
- Oliver receives "Merit Stamps" when he helps people. Do you think it's legitimate to expect a badge or certificate just for doing the right thing, or even going out of your way to do a good thing?
- Some of the monsters in Ni No Kuni are pretty cute and un-threatening. Were you ever bothered by Oliver's having to fight small animals as he travels? Or did their cute looks not matter since they were attacking Oliver?
