Sora saved the worlds, and his friends, now he has to save himself. Lost in Castle Oblivion, Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Jiminy face off against part of Organization XIII, whose origin, purpose, and reason for needing Sora remains a mystery at this point. As the group progresses through the castle, they lose their precious memories from the journey they just completed, and worse yet, those of the dearest friends they have. To further confuse them, new ones surface to replace these. The other side of the story features Riku, who also has fallen into this trap, and now must battle with his own inner darkness. Unfortunately due to the limit in space, his half is shortened in comparison to the game. It is up to Sora, with the help of his friends, to reforge the chains of his memories, discover the true measure of his heart, and ultimately to remember what is most important to him. Chain of Memories faithfully adapts the story of the game, with the only significant changes coming in the form of additional humourous scenes to fill in for the missing battle gameplay. Unfortunately these scenes represent the weakest links in the art, which is generally quite good. 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.
