Wait, so... that whole 'locking up your memories' thing...

Is that why Yuna distanced herself from Tidus and went back to her 'summoner' days? Because she forgot about her lifestyle from X-2 and forgot the pain and love that her and Tidus went through?

...So that's why Yuna is acting like her FFX self in Will. It kinda makes sense now. Praying to Yevon, her mentioning the Final Summoning is the only way to defeat Sin, her being locked up on an island and never going anywhere...

So in X-3, one of the plot points could be Tidus helping Yuna trigger her memories. The question is... why would the unsent do that? I'll wait for more info.
The official 'Shinra' of the FFX boards.

Wanna know stuff? Ask me. "I know everything."

I somehow can't answer? "... I'm just a kid."

Could be, but then why would she say yes when Chuami asked if Tidus is her boyfriend or not? Unless the mere mention of Tidus' name triggers her memories.

The mystery deepens, but interesting nevertheless.

My God, it seems they've detonated Yuna's character purely for the sake of drama, this sounds terrible. My WTF meter has just been maxed out.

Tidus is acting childish, and it she says, it is only natural since "Time stopped for him".

I'm curious to know what kind of childish behaviors Tidus exhibits in front of Yuna...

I still want to be with him forever, and I am sure in time we will get used to eachother.

Tidus and Yuna shippers want you to stay with him forever too  :'(

"I'm not going to erase your memories, just lock them away. Although they can come gushing forth if there is a certain trigger".

I got a feeling that this entity not only can erase peoples' memories, but alter them too.

Well... we can only speculate for now.

No, no. Her memories of the ACCIDENT were locked away from what I have seen. Nothing else, just that.

I haven't translated yet, so don't look too much into it. I have to actually read the novel to find out what kind of behavior tidus had to cause this feeling in her.

Also, as far as the timeline.
The book clearly says 数ヶ月。 Which is 'a few months'. I am going to place this book 2-3 months after Tidus gets back. If it was 6 months, they would have said 'half year'.

Also FFX-3 is basically confirmed. They put in big print "Is this book some sort of omen"? On the front cover.

Hmm, alright, thanks for clearing that up.

So no mention if X-2.5 actually takes place a few months after good ending or Last Mission? Oh well  :(

What do you mean when you say this? I know Nojima touched on the possibility of an X-3 in an interview some time last month, but he only talked about potential if there is a demand for it. Knowing SE, they will push for a demand through some type of promotion or teaser, but I honestly hope nothing comes of it. Unless, of course, all of the VAs return. Then I can have fun with that. I'm not very picky and can adjust to change, but I am never here for different voices for the same character(s).

Wait.....does this mean Tidus doesn't age after FFX-2?

I'm pretty sure if you are a collection if pyreflies for 2 years, that you don't age... You know, being dead and all. I am sure he will age now, but remember he is still 17 while Yuna is 19.

Thank you SO much Pixel! Really appreciate you posting all of that <3

I'm confused though. Why is it going through the good ending? Is it just a recap before the actual story hits, or does it really take place immediately after the game?

I really feel the Novella takes place a few months after FFX-2 Final Mission because yuna talks about how happy she is living with tidus but in the novella it doesnt seem this way at all....i will be shocked if it takes place before Final Mission i really will
