Here's what you do:

Take a picture of the whole thing when it first appears. When each turn comes around, remember the quote and pause the game, then use your photo as a reference. Trying to play it 'normally' is infuriating.

I see we won the same way LOL

I was called "dishonorable" for using that method by the peeps at the Offishal Tales Forum.
I didn't give a fuck.

Well then people at the OFFISHUL Tales forum are a few fries short of a happy meal.

If anyone else is having trouble doing 'Last boss of Future Arc' in 60 seconds, try this:
Asbel + Cheria + Richard + Malik
Put a Malik Nakariri on Cheria and Richard.
Set them all to: Aggressive, B only, Never defend
Only Keep Culling Flare ON in the spell list.
Equip title that give +xx% critical to B artes.
With Asbel, keep her from moving.

I had a lot of trouble going lower than 90 seconds, but doing this shaved off an entire minute and I beat her in 36 seconds.

that one can be done in like 5 seconds by using the piggy back method, although that makes the challenges go away and may reduce your enjoyment in getting the trophy

For those that don't know:
1 Equip appropriate titles on Cheria/Hubert/Sophie (e.g. Cheria's Alluring Temptress)
2 Make sure there is at least half accel bar full
3 Put on book of solitude, book of audacity, book of enthusiasm, etc etc, i.e. all books that halves stats, set difficult to chaos
4 Go up to boss, let boss hit you (for close to 999999), immediately activate accel to cancel dying animation, hit back, boss dies.

This can be done for any boss after getting the accel mode.

That way is so boring.  I got my Future Arc under 60 seconds trophy as the last one before Platinum, so I waited until after I had cleared Zhonecage on Chaos mode.

It was an overkill, but a good finale, I suppose.  You could do it on Easy mode long before that.  I didn't use Malik, but instead controlled Richard and used him as my caster. He just spammed Shade Imperial over and over again and probably took off more than half of the boss HP by himself.

The key to doing it really fast is Hourglass items.

I just finished the main game a few minutes ago. Loved it! Though I'm glad there's an f arc; I thought the epilogue was pretty lacking. Looking forward to starting it sometime this afternoon or tomorrow.

Future Arc has the best skits.  Try to get them all.

I think so as well.  It's a shortcut and not really needed.  It is also not OP because it can only be used for 2 60sec trophies in the first playthrough.

What review? 

Speaking of reviews I am a bit disappoint that review of this game is not up yet a month after release.  Sad that mainstream media (ign/gamespot etc) ignoring and not reviewing this as well.  Oh well I guess the people that really want this game (fans) already bought it anyway.

The poster posted a giant wall of text review, I truncated it.

Also, we have an import review up, from one year ago. We don't have a domestic review yet because we have been busy with other things.

Understandable as reviews takes time.  For tales game there is not much convincing needed, you either like them and buy them or never will. Was just hoping for more coverage that's all.

The win quotes when it's just the men in your party during the f arc are hilarious!

I like the one where they attack Hubert for his incompetent Healing skills.
