Major MOON., One, and Kanon spoilers!
Prepare yourselves, my children, because I’m about to open your eyes and blow your
I was rereading Mai’s route of Kanon when I noticed it.
(I’m just gonna put it under a details box so I don’t take too much space.)
Mai is, frankly undeniably, the reincarnation of Youko. First, listen to their character themes:
Yeah, they’re not that similar I guess, far more noticeable is the MOON. track “Daybreak” and the Kanon track that, if I recall correctly, plays exclusively in Mai’s route, “An Omen”.
Now just be patient, I know I haven’t made any kind of point yet, just that some tracks sounds kind of similar. But now take a look at these images of Mai and Youko:
Note that they’re both wearing a cross.
“So what machelmore, plenty of people wear crosses as some kind of accessory.”
But now take a look at THIS:
We get these almost identical CGs after the heroine has some kind of confrontation with the protagonist and comes to terms with themselves.
“Okay, that could very well have been on purpose, but even that’s kind of a stretch, where’s your evidence?”
Ahh, but you see, Mai and Youko are both ESPers! It’s the core premise of MOON. and a major plot point of Mai’s route!
“Holy… You might actually be onto something…”
But wait! I will give my ultimate proof all in due time. First, here’s why Nayuki is the reincarnation of Mio from One.
Mio’s theme and Nayuki’s theme. The themes don’t sound too similar, but they’re done in the same style, whatever it’s called (music is not my strong suit) and are the only tracks in that style in their given games.
Here are two CGs from near the end of their respective routes:
And their final CGs:
Now to tie it all together.
It’s pretty common knowledge that Nanase from One (keeping in mind this is the game Nayuki’s previous incarnation was from) can be seen in a Nayuki CG:
And as I pointed out a little while ago in the “Key’s Self-References” topic, two characters from MOON. (this of course being the game Mai’s previous incarnation is from) can be seen in a background unique to Mai’s route!:
So we’ve exposed this conspiracy, but this rabbit hole actually goes even deeper. You see, there is a single event that brings our heroines together:
That’s right, it is the same scenario that connects Nayuki to Mai - fetching a notebook for the heroine in the school at night - that we see with Mio!
And the notebook we’re looking for in this case? Here it is:
Hang on. A green spiral-bound notebook? Haven’t we seen that somewhere before?
There it is!
In summary, Shiori is the evil mastermind behind the suffering our heroines experienced in all of MOON., One and Kanon!
Wake up sheeple.
