The top-ranked review [for the FFX-2.5 novel on Amazon] was a bit weird itself, which is why I didn't translate details from the reviews. The reviewer says there's sexual content of some sort in the novel and that's where his review got a little awkward.

The only major detail I got from skimming the reviews is that the readers feel quite sorry for Tidus after the novel. It seems the 'star-crossed lovers' part of the relationship will continue to play out in any following works.

lol

I don't really care personally, but the amount of butthurt this could instigate is just delicious.

I am now convinced that SE is trying to systematically destroy themselves. LR sold poorly so it must be some kind of large scale seppuku. What other explanation is there?

I noticed the reviews were almost all low-rated before and I was trying my best to make sense of it all with the the help of Google translate - which obviously ain't much help.

I keep seeing people mention something about sexual and how they felt really bad for Tidus and that the whole thing was really disappointing. Now that TC's confirmed this further I just have to wonder.

What. The. ****!?

LR only sold poorly in an FF sense. It had top sales.

Seriously though, depending on what is meant here with "feeling sorry for Tidus" and if it's what I'd like to think it is (NTR, though I don't think SE has the balls for it), Yuna could quite possibly become worse than Rinoa herself.

It could also just be that Tidus is injured or something like that or turning into Sin, hence people feeling sorry.

We'll see.

Oh god, the reviews are all the same. It's sad, something sexual happened and yup, people feel bad for Tidus. Oh, and one goes as far as to use "cruel".

The audio drama didn't give the impression that things were so bad.

Honestly, the way the japanese deal with romance is so foreign I'm willing to qualify it as an eldritch concept. You try to wrap your head around it and it melts your mind.

This is priceless (from one of the reviews):

"As a whole, it is a painful story. It does not constitute any bright impression from the synopsis and title, but (scenes hint at the cruel and sex scene are many there) in a vivid image"

Dude, I will rage across the galaxy if it ends up being some 'ol bull**** like that. Yuna and Square Enix would be so dead to me.

Someone who speaks Japanese, please explain! Please tell me Yuna has not become a raging whore!? *cries*
