You're making the mistake of exclusively attributing the sacrificial method to final aeons, although only within the terms of the theory I proposed. That may not be the case in this theory.

Although, I personally lean more towards the final aeon just being an appreciated term. Strong bond = strong aeon. That goes in all cases.
That would make the female summoner's intention in Boy's Side to create a much stronger aeon than usual.
Usual taken lightly.

I'm still confused. I'm not saying the sacrifice is exclusive to final aeons. I'm saying the opppsite of that. Every fayth we encounter in FFX involved someone sacrificing their life to become a fayth (we see a projection of their original form when we revisit the fayth in the temples). I'm also saying, though, that if those fayth were close to a summoner, it could be assumed -- at least in the cases of the post-Sin fayth -- that they would have ended up being final aeons.

Do we even know yet what the sex-fayth method does in terms of creating a new fayth/aeon? Presumably it doesn't sacrifice anyone, but is this known for sure?

Yes, that's correct. It's assumed that if that was the case, where the sacrificial method was used for all fayth, they are all technically final aeons.
The thing that differs from them is that the final aeon is the one that is possessed by Yu Yevon, therefore killing the summoner.

As of now, they're both plausible.

The sex-fayth method is just a way to bypass the sacrificial method to create fayth. That's all we know. We may get some more crucial details this weekend, however! Clear up this matter for good.

Tidus died, but was resurrected.

Check up on the novella page to inform yourself of all the information we've gathered so far.

just gonna add this here, in case anyone's interested

Quote
ashimoto also shot down the idea of a Final Fantasy X-3, saying “Since we’re revisiting Final Fantasy X and X-2, which were released about 10 years ago, the series’ scenario writer Kazushige Nojima and character designer Tetsuya Nomura had a discussion and thought that the HD Remaster release would be a good opportunity for them to include this additional story episode [and expand upon the univese a little further]. But the audio episode’s inclusion wasn’t because we have any plans to develop a Final Fantasy X-3.

Hey, fellas! The English dubbed version of the audio drama is up on Youtube!

I must say, they really nailed Chuami's immaturity with her voice. Props to the voice cast.

And man, this is probably the best version of Tidus that James Arnold Taylor has done yet. It sounds both mature and still has a sorta late-teenager vibe. It's perfect.

As for the others: Lulu sounds older, Yuna surprisingly sounds the same, and Wakka... eghhh... it seems like John DiMaggio either forgot how to do his voice or isn't capable of doing it due to age. It's rather sad. :(

lmao Wakka's accent is atrocious. Lulu sounds like a smoker.

I am so happy to hear Yuna's voice. The way she's written is perfect too; she's finally the character she was meant to be. You can tell she's comfortable in herself at last.

DiMaggio's voice was shaky at first, but he worked it out near the end. I think Wakka's voice would've changed after all; it's been about three years, and he's a completely changed man.

Taylor did great, a sophisticated naivete, Burgess was calm and with sorrow as in the first game, Lulu was slightly drained seeing as she's mayor, and Chuami and Kurgum were about where I placed them to be.



It's nice to hear it in English. It's not really that bad, revisiting it.

It's not necessarily the voice itself, but he definitely lost the accent. Living in Besaid and being around all of those people... it would be pretty unlikely it'd go away.

Regardless, I'm just super glad that he's the one who took on the role! It's nice to have the original VAs back ^^

I don't like Chuami (only because she's claiming to be Auron's daughter, go away), but the VA did great on her. Definitely an awesome job there. Kurgum sounded like a cliche anime voice. It just doesn't sound right out of context imo

Now all we have to do is wait for the English dubbed Last Mission cutscenes. Then we can hear how Tara Strong and Gwendoline Yeo handled Rikku and Paine's voices eleven years later. :P Man, it feels great to have all the original voice actors back, even if they don't sound exactly the same.

Hello friends. :) I'm new here and the FFX universe is by far my favorite. I love the engaging stories, characters and the world of Spira so much. I'm hoping that something comes out of this. The audio drama was finally released in English on YouTube if anyone is interested in viewing and listening. It was wonderfully refreshing hearing Tidus speak again. Though he sounds much more grown and mature, he still has that cheerfulness about him that I loved. :)
Anyway, here's the English version of the Audio Drama if anyone wishes to hear it. :)

Also... I saw that there were some translations done of the X-2.5 novella... I was just wondering if more will be done? I was reading this thread:
http://ffx3chat.createaforum.com/general-discussion/the-novella-chapter-translations/msg509/#msg509
I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong thread. I hope you guys enjoy this! ^_^

the audio drama is a cute little bonus to peek into the characters, but I am not here for its intentions. I really do believe they're hoping 'Will' will be X-2's 'Eternal Calm' and lead to another game. I think enough is enough and it should stop while it's still good

However, I wouldn't be opposed to an X-3 movie! That way it feels more like it being canon or not is optional.

Ohohoho! An FFX-3 movie would be nice. Seeing Spira and all our favourite characters in all their next-gen CGI glory... *Q*

It would definitely look better than VII's environment due to all the colours and exotic places. XD
