Yup.

Yuna says 'Arigatou', which means 'Thank you'.

Saying 'I love you' directly is actually offensive in Japanese culture. It's why it was changed in the English version.
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."

X-3.


It's all up to Square for production allocation.
It's all up to Nojima for making it worthwhile.

On the topic of the "BAM! Auron-daughter out of NOWHERE!" talk, I recall Kinoc saying to Auron that he (Auron) had broken an engagement with/refused to marry the high priest's daughter prior to becoming Braska's guardian. Chuami would be about the right age to be the high priest's daughter's daughter.

It would hold my view of him no lower. I think it'd add more depth to Auron's character.


I know everybody likes to think of him as a badass, but creating a perfect archetype is also creating a hollow one. I want an Auron story in FFX-3.

I had hoped if they ever did another sequel to FFX it would be about Braska's pilgrimage and we would learn more about Auron's younger days. Although I suppose they could weave that seamlessly into this FFX-3 if the storytelling is done correctly. If Chuami is indeed Auron's daughter than she would have been about four years old when he went on his first pilgrimage. One viably explanation is that Auron was dating Chuami's mother when he believed her to be killed by Sin at sea. In actuality however she washed up on an island and discovers she's pregnant with his child. By the time she's able to get in contact with him she finds out he's become Braska's guardian. Not wanting to derail him from an oath she realizes he hold's dear she allows him to remain unaware of their child.

 Auron is one of the most beloved characters in the history of Final Fantasy. If the writers establish that he was fully aware he had a daughter all along it would making him seem like a dead beat dad and diminish the character.

Auron have an daughter idea is ugly and bad,I just dont believe it Auron never know that!
first of all even Toriyama and the other staff members don't even know chuami they created her in 2014 surely you jest...i bet they want to force her into the story "somehow Auron didnt know her/met her" her mother survived sin attacks and blablablablbla surely you jest this is one of the most uglyest story....

Fans want Auron back in the storyline but he needs a solid reason for being there. If the only scenario SquareEnix can conjure up is the long lost daughter routine I'll take it. Besides if they approach it correctly it won't be a bad idea.

My main request is that they improve Chuami voice actress, as it stands right now, she is indeed annoying.

I've seen a few predictions here of how (a possible) X-3 might end based on what has been revealed so far from the novel and the audio drama. I did put a brief prediction in another thread, in which I thought maybe both Tidus and Yuna might die, since in x they had a separation, and in X-2 a reunion, so repeating these would be a bit pointless...This way if they both die they can be together in death...love in death...but then I realized this would also be a theme that was already cover through Shuyin and Lenne...so such an ending might not happen. Looking at the information reveal both in the novel (about the method the 2 summoners use to create a beast core) and a new "summoner" introduce in the audio drama, and how both Yuna and Kurugum left to fight Sin, I wouldn't doubt it that they will use this method to create a beast core, in which Yuna would become the summon and Kurugum the summoner. Not only will the beast core be use to defeat Sin or whoever the final boss will be, but since beast cores can pretty much summon anything (sorry not sure if I understood this information correctly), Kurugum/Yuna just might bring Dream Zanarkand back so her and Tidus can go live there....I know this is a completely crazy prediction. Such an ending might be bitter-sweet in my opinion, but personally I prefer something like this than a happy ending like the good ending from X-2, and it's not because I didn't like the ending but because I don't want to see a similar ending again.

Quote from: from: TresDias
Bahamut's fayth wasn't part of the dreaming used to summon Dream Zanarkand. He just provides the Bahamut aeon. The fayth can see into one another's dreams, though. That's how he and the fayth of Valefor, Ixion, etc. knew of Dream Zanarkand, why it existed, etc. According to the Ultimania Omega for FFX, the fayth of Yuna's aeons would go hang out around Dream Zanarkand. Things were fine and dandy as far as they were concerned until Jecht becoming Sin made them realize how **** up it all was.

I don't remember where I read this (this forum or elsewhere) or if it was even correct, but I thought that the fayth could only summon the Aeons, so wouldn't this mean Bahamut's fayth can only summon the aeon of Bahamut? How can the fayth of Bahamut summon/bring back Tidus? I would understand if it was a beast core (if I'm understanding the information correctly), because it seems they can summon pretty much anything...Could Bahamut be a beast core? I don't know why but for the longest time I've thought that Bahamut was a stolen fayth/aeon from Zanarkand, taken to Bevelle during the war...I don't know why I thought that but I was just trying to find info on that and found nothing...I guess I must've dreamed it  :-[ Can't wait to play the game again, my memory of the game is really foggy at the moment.  :D


I can understand why people are very surprised that Auron MIGHT have a daughter (Chuami), especially since it was never mentioned in X, however, I can still see it as something possible. In X Yuna and Tidus are both 17 and it had been 10 years since the calm started, so wouldn't that mean that both Tidus and Yuna are 7 when Auron, Jecht, and Braska go on their pilgrimage? If Yuna is 19 in X-2 and the audio drama takes place one year later she would have to be 20. Now, if Chuami is 17, that means she is 3 years younger than Yuna, which would mean that when Yuna and Tidus were 7, Chuami had to be 4 years old. I've also read comments that say Auron would be too young to have had a kid, however, looking at his profile in the Final Fantasy wiki, it says he is 35 during X, and 25 during Braska's pilgrimage. Now if he is 25 in the pilgrimage and has a 4 year old kid that means he had the kid when he was 21.  :o Old enough to make a baby   8)

Now if Chuami does turn out to be Auron's daughter, why did he never mention it? Well, I think this can be answered when looking at Auron's character and the story itself. If I had to describe Auron, I would say he is a man of few words, when he met up with the party he could have told them what the final aeon entailed and that Jecht was Sin...but he didn't until the party learned it for themselves. This pilgrimage was about Yuna and her guardians, where would his (possible) daughter fit in this story...I believe nowhere, hence it would be unnecessary for him to mention. In fact don't we learn about Auron through other people and the spheres that hold scenes between the trio during their journey? (Sorry I'm not sure if I'm remembering the game correctly, I want to see youtube videos but I'd rather wait until it's release to play and remember the story again, so if the information I have given is inaccurate, I apologize). :'(

Lots of new information from hitoshura at TheLifestream.net, where Pixel and I are from. He's been a translator in the FF fandom for more than ten years and was the first to provide a summary of Nojima's The Kids Are Alright FFVII novel a couple years ago:

http://thelifestream.net/lifestream-projects/translations/11751/summary-of-the-new-ffvii-novel/

He confirmed the boat sex thing between Tidus and Yuna the other day, by the way.

Wow ok, this fanart (second pic) from pixiv http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=manga&illust_id=40543279  finally makes sense now

moonstone: I think it's probably a good guess that Bahamut's fayth originally came from Zanarkand. Given that his fayth was installed in the temple at Bevelle, it stands to reason that his was one of the oldest, if not the oldest of those still around during FFX.

If he were from Zanarkand, that would also explain his especial interest in Dream Zanarkand and Tidus, and why he acts as the 'representative" for the others, so to speak.

He's definitely no Beast Core, though. His fayth is a stone statue like the others.

Im so **** off right now, SE announced that they are not going to do X-3, they said that the new content (audio drama and novella) was only to 'expand' X's universe a little more.

IF THEY WERE NOT GOING TO DO A GAME, WHY THE HELL DID THEY MADE RUMORS!?
They have already mess X with this audio drama and novella, why SE?

Just LEAVE ALONE the story!!!!!
And thanks for ruin my dream of a good X-3. >:(
FFX ;-)
