-Things go slow in palace. We have to see the rest for relationships to develop a little more.

Yang and Reinhard, as a consequence, are relatively flat as characters and seem to be missing something vital to their respective personalities. Granted, they were a tad idyllic in the original version, but they felt genuine, ...
