Well, I still don't like it, but there are small little things I gleam out of the text that I find worthwhile. There are some cool factoids about the Al Bhed and Spira's history and summoning, for example. But I'm reluctant to take any of that new stuff, as cool as it may be, as canon because of how much previously established canon that Nojima has carelessly ignored in the book/audio drama, so it kind of feels wrong to take ANY of this as canon, because that contradicts! xD But I'm trying to not see things as black and white: I'm trying to take the pieces I like, and just ignore the rest, even though that makes no sense...

because Nojima wrote something that is, in my opinion, illlogical and nonsensical, so why should I have to be logical about his nonsense writing? xD

One thing I absolutely can't find any goodness in though is, as MJ mentioned, the characterization of almost all the major characters from X/X-2, which is just dismal. Even besides Yuna and Tidus, there are things about Lulu and Rikku that really bug me, too.

But yeah, I certainly haven't "convinced" myself into thinking this thing is good, that's for certain. I'm just willing to concede that there are SOME interesting parts of it. :P Plus, I'm addicted to reading the thing, like a bad habit. To see what craziness Nojima came up with this time, surely you jest.
