It is time for Episode Nine. After coming to Margie's rescue, Bart faces off against Ramsus. Then Fei comes to help! Then they run into Elly! Then Margie's stuffed animal is a real animal! We learn the necessity of deathblow combos, explore the lack of stride animations in non-essential characters, and also develop an utter mistrust of Citan. Remember, Xenogears’ first law states that something must be foreshowed ten (10) times before you're allowed to know the truth.
