Fav female is gonna be an interesting one.  Usually demonstrates what Japan likes in women compared to NA a bit (in saying that, I think Yuna might rank quite high).

You think Yuna wouldn't rank high in NA?

The X-2 version might.

I need a little help here guys.

A few days ago I was messing around in the Japanese channel of Square Enix in YouTube and I remembered they uploaded a bunch of old trailers from the series. While I was watching the one for Final Fantasy X, at the end of trailer it plays an arrangement of the main theme of FF that I'm pretty sure I've never heard before.

Does anyone know if that track is in the OST or not?

Here's the playlist of the trailers if anyone wanna see them.

Japan ranks their favorite female characters from the Final Fantasy series -- Source: Nova Crystallis



"The results for Japan's female character vote is now in.

Much like the earlier male character poll which saw Zack (FFVII) as the over all winner, the fight for the top appears to have been fierce. Lightning came in at #1, just narrowly beating out Aerith after taking what was seemingly an early runaway lead. Aerith and Yuna, however, were fighting for the top spot from the very beginning.

46 character names in total were posted by fans and the results although not as detailed as the previous poll reflect a general opinion of Japan's Final Fantasy Forum using fans.

Those with duplicate rankings held the same amount of votes, and are thus counted as a tied ranking. Check out the full compiled list below. Note that not all 46 names are represented here, as characters with too few votes are not represented."


Results:

1. Lightning (FFXIII)
2. Aerith (FFVII)
3. Yuna (FFX)
4. Tifa (FFVII)
5. Celes (FFVI)
6. Tina (FFVI)
7. Serah (FFXIII)
8. Garnet (FFIX)
8. Faris (FFV)
10. Rinoa (FFVIII)
10. Rydia (FFIV)
12. Selphie (FFVIII)
13. Rikku (FFX)
14. Beatrix (FFIX)
14. Yuffie (FFVII)
16. Ashe (FFXII)
17. Rosa (FFIV)
17. Eiko (FFIX)
17. Agrias (FFT)

The rest isn't too surprising but I seriously didn't expect Lightning to top the list.  But then these polls alway seem biased towards recent releases.

As good as that collection is, I've heard a lot of these before on several other albums.  Not to say I don't love them and don't want this collection as well, though.
But *I'd KILL* if they did an orchestrated selection to some of the more "hidden gems" of the game's soundtracks. D:

FF9's Loss of Me, or FF7's Cosmo Canyon, FFX's Yunalesca fight, hell, a lot of FF12 is largely ignored (and damn that game had a few awesome tracks that'd be *perfect* to orchestrate).  I do admire a lot of the non-standard OSTs that have been coming out lately for the series.  The SQs were pretty great for picking some of the less-standard themes.

I like this album more because FFXIII and XIV actually get recognition here. I was pretty bored of seeing the same themes over and over again.

Twilight over Thanalan and Answers are crazy good though.

this poll was filled by CURRENT FF fans so most of the votes comes from people that still care for FF specifically the XIII series, then again JP is weird they know NOTHING about Noctis and he already beat some old timers FF fans, really weird.

"Noctis has short, spiky, black hair and blue eyes. Although, according to Nomura, his hair and eyes can change color along with his emotions and actions in battle.

Noctis is said to be a very shy person, but he initially tries to hide this by "acting cool". According to director Tetsuya Nomura, Noctis will not have the "Cloud-like" personality that people are currently expecting. Instead, he will be a type of character that has not yet been seen in the series, one which Nomura has wanted to try out for a long time. Nomura says that Noctis will have a strong and distinctive personality, and will absolutely not be a "silent, gloomy little boy".

In a recent Dengeki interview, Nomura explained that Noctis is not cool, but rather an ordinary young man who acts tough because he feels that it is his duty to protect his kingdom and its citizens. As a result, he sometimes acts rashly or overestimates his own strength."

So after almost seven years since the game was announced, we learn that the protagonist is not cool.  Meanwhile, there is still no game to show.

Swell.

I've never liked the hype behind Versus. (~_~;)

Versus itself though, it does sounds very interesting from the bunch of info I've read over the years but given the people behind the project I can tell that this going to be messy once is released.

Fuck... If my eyes changed color to reflect my emotions, they'd be RED all work long.  No one would buy a warranty unlees I could scare them into it.  ...what color is "love"?  My eyes would change to that color every time this cute dude walks in-- giving it all away.
