Welcome to the Star Ocean: Second Story Shrine! This is the sequel to Star Ocean 1 (for the Super Famicom/SNES) and the direct prequel to Star Ocean: Blue Sphere, for Game Boy Color (all 12 characters from SO2 come back in SO:BS). In turn, SO:BS inspired the anime Star Ocean EX.
A game this huge was impossible to cover all by myself, so enlisted the help of many FAQ writers to ease the load. The vast majority of information was double-checked by me, though. I highly suggest you read the introduction to the shrine to see how things are set up and how to read abbreviations etc. If you can't see something specifc on the table of contents to your left, please try the Site Map Pop-Up.
