Let us begin a fantastical exegesis of Chrono Cross. To kick off our second season, we’re talking about who made Chrono Cross, discussing accent tools, denying community, marveling at efficiency, reciting poetry, devouring the intro CG movie, calling songs different names, invading a stone fortress, and foreshadowing doom. We hope you enjoy this radical dream!
