“There is no good, there is no bad. Just perspective and opinion.”
It is my great honour to congratulate Josh, Leah, Brian and Tom for passing their exam and graduating to become official members of SeeD. As you all well known, being a member of SeeD comes with many privileges, but also many trials. They will be able to explore the many far reaches of the globe. From Deling City at the heart of the Galbadia Empire, all the way to the hidden technological super power of Esthar. The sights and sounds of which, will fill your younger class mates with a great deal of envy. But they must also summon their courage when facing down corrupt armies, time travelling sorceresses…wait, does this say a water fall of moon monsters!? Any way, every SeeD must master the elaborate technique of drawing and junctioning magic. Yes, this may feel tedious at first, but those with patience can unleash swift death upon their enemies. …It is also important that you all sign this waiver, that states that “Balamb Garden is not responsible for any brain damage you may incur while using Guardian Forces on the field.” Don’t worry, it’s just standard procedure. Nothing to worry about (cough). So, are you four ready for your first mission? It’s to evaluate the 1999 entry in a popular JRPG series. Operation Code Name, Final Fantasy VIII.
