I wonder if anyone got any further scans of that Novel?

I'm afraid the scans that were originally retrieved can no longer be viewed. It was hosted by a Japanese website, leading to my belief that it was either expired or moved to another host. If any more scans are found, I'll be sure to post them up here for public viewing and interpretation.

Also, just to clarify, this Price of Eternity novel took place after the events of X-2 and before the events of the audio drama?

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, that's correct! For an official timeline of events, I'll lay out each event and the corresponding result of each in respective order:

FFX - The Eternal Calm begins, Tidus disappears.
- 2 years later -
FFX-2 - Shuyin is defeated, Tidus's pyreflies are brought back together.
????????
FFX-2.5 ~Price of Eternity~ - Tidus is killed and resurrected, the sex-fayth method is introduced, Farplane is disturbed.
-???????
FFX -Will- - Dead are being "called back" to Spira, Sin returns, Chuami and Kurugum are introduced.

That's roughly the timeline as of now. I'll update a thread with an official timeline if viewer will requests it.

Sigh... I'll translate everything on that page later tonight. It's about 8:20 here in Japan, should be ready by a little after midnight. If you have any other scans, it might help.

Sorry for the double post. It is extremely hard to read the text on that page.

The translation seems well done, except for the very last part which was(If I am reading correctly, meaning I'm reading the right Kanji).

It's not "The source of Yuna's shock", but rather... even scarier.

"The thing which went flying towards her, was the head of Tidus, with the look of shock still affixed to it".

"飛んで行ったのは驚きの表情が張り付いたティーダの首だった。

飛んで行ったのは=The thing that went flying.
驚きの表情=Look/Expression of shock/surprise
張り付く=paste/fixed onto
ティーダの首だった=was Tidus' neck/head

I was searching for information on the novel, and I came across this page : http://gameimpression.doorblog.jp/archives/35272379.html
One user posted a few scans depicting an ecchi scene between Tidus and Yuna, but its all in japanese. Maybe someone can translate it?

Edit: I think these were the scans that were lost

Ahh, yes! I'm so lucky to have such a helpful support system here. I'll put those up on the novella page immediately. Thank you very much!

I don't know know how to feel about this....


Simply a parody and satire site, my friend. Nothing to be concerned about.

Unfortunately my laptop is out of action for now and I have been forced to used my smart phone to sign up and join this group but I have done so because I must thank you for starting this group... ffx is by far my favourite final fantasy of all and when I watched the English audio drama it honestly got me excited for a possible final fantasy x-3 but after hearing about the novella and how it has been written.....my excitement has went down very much....

FFX-2
FFX-2 Last Mission
FFX-2.5
FFX-Will (Audio Drama)

How long after X-2 does the novella x-2.5 take place?
I've been reading different things, some say it happens 2 days after X-2, others say 3 months and some say 6 months.....

If it happens after 2 days or even 3 months then that would mean that last mission is not canon since it wouldn't fit in the time line ( Last Mission seems to happen 3 months after X-2) or this story really will be just a spin off....

I translated the right page for you guys(The one of the supposed ecchi scene)!

The story seems to be in  a different place? They are on some sort of Island. I haven't read any info on this Novella, just translating, so sorry if I'm not too up to date.

Sorry to disappoint, but... there is no ECCHI that takes place on the first of the two pages you posted.

Quote
The two of them held a strategy meeting in the shade of a waterfall on the road.
They tried to prioritize and fully grasp the whole situation.

They discussed what they would do if they met the inhabitants of this island

Tidus: "In any case, the first thing is to show that we mean no harm(hostility). In the case that the other party shows hostility, (can't see the kanji),  and they don't understand us, RUN! If we get split up, meet back up at the waterfall entrance.

Tidus:Well... that's the plan anyways.

Yuna: Sure thing!

Tidus or Yuna(not sure who): "The stone statue kind of interests me, so if you find it, check it out!"

Yuna: "I mean... it's not like this place should be uninhabited, right? I hope they are nice."

Tidus: "I know, right! Although... even if they were hostile, they would probably forfeit once they got a look at you"

Yuna: "Huh? Why?"

Tidus: "Come on..."

Tidus pointed to her chest, her all black bathing suit was split into upper and lower parts.

Tidus: "I ... get excited. I tried to get used to it, but... I still get fired up even with an accidental glance."

Tidus: "And... I sometimes think of you... THAT way. But... I want you to forgive me. I mean, I told you the truth, so you gotta forgive me!"
The last line on the page is illegible due to picture quality.



Hope you guys enjoyed. I will get to the other page soon. I took a quick glance, and didn't see anything about sex...
The ecchi part came from what Tidus said in Japanese "Ecchi na Me de Micchau(エッチな目で見っちゃう).
He is just saying he sees her sexually sometimes.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the translation KaminaSan!  ;D Also surely you jest Tidus, I'm curious as to what Yuna is going to respond to his remark.

Thanks for translating KaminaSan!

Moonstone, this is just speculation because I don't think the novel gives a specific date or time frame it takes place in but, I believe if FFX-2.5 is cannon it takes place sometime after 3 months. The FFX timeline on the FF wiki and other comments I have read have listed FFX-2.5 taking place after Last Mission. It is known that the audio drama takes place 1 year after X-2 and Last Mission takes place 3 months after X-2. Considering how the events in X-2.5 seems to be closely related to the audio drama it makes the most sense for X-2.5 to take place 3+ months after X-2.
