You know what they say: ninth time's the charm. Nothing exemplifies that more than Final Fantasy IX, a story about virtue, existentialism, frogs, bugs, rat people, airships, canaries, wizard build-a-bears, two planets eating eachother, multiple dimensions, The Darkness of Eternity, and a crystal that manifested life as we know it. It don't get more Final than that. Special Thanks to Eric for joining us again on this one!Music in chronological order:Victory Fanfare (Holder & Ephixa Remix)Something To Protect  and Final Fantasy Ending Theme by Nobuo Uematsu If you like our show, find us online to help spread the word!
