Things aren't really looking good on my end, my friend doesn't seem interested at all in the translation anymore. But I have more friends who are studying Japanese at university. Doesn't look good, but I'll see what I can do. A solid translation is exactly what we need right now.

Hah, the golden age, eh?
My friend still has 3 years or so left of his course, but he can get practicing now. I asked and he said he is willing to try, although it will take a while (I'm not sure how long we're talking here , but he's very talented ).
I looked for scans and only found the pages you mentioned, which sucks. Fortunately I found the novella cheap on and maybe I'll be able to purchase it next month.
The whole process might take a while, but I need to know the rest of the book!
As of today I've created topics on certain anime communities about X-3, to see if anyone is aware/remembers the whole uproar the novella caused. So far, no response  :'(
But please don't abandon the forum, we're like, the last ones left in a zombie apocalypse :p

For me it's Zanarkand and the Moonflow. Zanarkand is just beautiful , you can see the starts surrounded by pyreflies in these beautiful ruins.
The moonflow is just a really nice place , I just imagine sitting by the river at night looking at the scenery beautifully illuminated by the pyreflies.  :D

That could actually be the case, but that means square is keeping a close eye on a large portion of the internet.
The thing is , I have a friend who is studying Japanese at university and he wants to go into translation once he's finished the course. I asked him if he would like to translate this novella and he seemed interested.
However, he is still playing FF X and when I mentioned that it could spoil the game for him he seemed discouraged. Either way I can still try and see where this goes, I just need to find scans of the book.
Also he's a really close friend so if he disappears I can just show up at his house (if square hasnt killed him,that is).
Wish me good luck and I'll let ya'll know if this is going anywhere

PS: That said, does anyone know where I can get scans of the book? I'd buy it but I've got no funds at the minute, so any scans would be greatly appreciated.

Finally I caught up with this thread. It's all very scary and disturbing but I'm keeping my mind open... but what happened to all the translators? (mainly the last one)
That's the creepiest part of this whole ordeal.
Also the rumours about a FF XII HD remaster are back and stronger than ever, meaning X-3 has a chance.

Someone's come back other than Tidus,huh?

 The surprise is that Seymour has come back and Yuna realised she loved him. It's obvious ,guys. :P

FFX-3 Speculation and Developments / Re: Things you want to see in X-3?

If they somehow get dresspheres in there, how about an option where you can make your own custom dressphere design? Like SPORE, where you dress up the character on this interface using armour and weapons you find along the journey. Also, you can add general stat bonuses if you complete a certain armour set on a dressphere design. Plus, the playable characters have their own exclusive armour and weapon sets.

Isn't that what they're doing with Lightning Returns (kind of)? Lightning's armour/costume is completely customisable. if it goes down with players i think i would like to see that too, although i don't think it suits the world of ff X.
 Does anyone think that they might go in the same direction 13-3 and 15 are going ? (more action based)

FFX General / Re: Japanese Trailer For FFX HD

I enjoyed that trailer, an omen of the feels to come. but did anyone think that on the X/X-2 remaster there was no need to spoil the whole two games? I know their target audience are those who have completed the games before but they kinda blew their chances with possible new players.

FFX General / Re: What was the hardest boss, in your opinion?
« on: January 14, 2014, 06:22:33 am »
On X it was the omega weapon, i really had to think hard about how to beat it. On X-2 it was angra mainyu , that bastard took me over 2 hours to defeat and several attempts to stop dying after the first half an hour of the battle.  >:(

FFX-2 General / Re: FFX-2 Early Concepts/Designs

These are cute, interesting concepts But i'm so glad they didn't make it into the game! Because of the whole dressing up thing the game wasn't taken seriously in the first place but imagine if they put Fruit power into it. The Bull fighter one is the cutest, but I'm really glad they developed these (or not) into better ideas.

I really liked Tidus's future artwork. His bandana resembles a bit of his father.

I also liked Yuna's future artwork too.

Does anyone think Wakka and Lulu will have new concepts?

Wakka sounded like his old self but a lot more mature and although Lulu was the most serious in the game she sounds more mature too, I think their concepts should change to match that they've grown and also maybe make them look like parents. What do people think of Lulu with short hair? I would like to see what that is like.
 As for Tidus, he's my favourite character and I hope for once they'll give him a nice outfit. The bandana looks nice so far.  I mean, they revamped his outfit a little bit in Final fantasy Dissidia but the whole thing should be discarded

Also, if Seymour came back and we had to fight him again I don't think I could cope.

FFX General / Re: What thing did you like most about Final Fantasy X?

I loved how much there was to explore, I spent hours just walking around cheking every single detail in a particular area. I also loved finding vestiges of the old world and talking to people to learn more of Spira's past, specially that old man who talks way more than he should.
 The music was one of my favourite parts too as well as Yuna's and Tidus' relationship of course.
 I think my favourite area apart from Zanarkand was the Moonflow

I love that design for the logo. Kinda wish they had kept it...

"Someday the Dream Will End" Sounds fantastic. I actually don't mind the remastered soundtrack, I think the original will carry on being my favourite even though they're pretty much the same...

Man, this just gets more and more interesting.

Also, am I the only one who finds all this kind of eerie? It's like... finally the missing pieces are slowly being found to put them all together, but we have to go through characters' heads exploding and who knows what else.

....I love the creepiness tbh
I feel that all of this is extremely eerie. It kind of disturbed me a bit.
Someone above me posted a link to SQ saying they (by mistake) published a fanfic rather than the actual manuscript.
 To the people who read that article, did anyone else feel like the writer was impressed and tempted by the novel? It was like he wanted to incorporate elements from it into his work. I don't know, something feels off about it.

I'm a bit of a noob, so is it possible the theories and speculations in this topic could actually make it into a game? If that happened it would be the darkest game I've seen from Enix.
