Hahah I FUCKING love Yuna, she's my guuuurl! She's like....aghhh- so many feels. But yea- She's like "I don't care if he's form the past AND dreamed up by the Fayth- bitch is comin home and I'm gonna find him- and save the world again while I'm at it- AINT NOTHIN BUT A THANG." She rocks.
I wonder how many people more would have chosen Yuna if instead of wearing the cute-but-totes-badass gunner outfit, she was wearing a bikini top, minishorts, ribbon sleeves, and a shit ton of leather. That's what some of these decisions seem to be based on.
I love that you love FFX-2, cause it's like, most people I know don't. They'll like hate it because Yuna isn't this shy, soft spoken, unconfident little lady anymore. She's more confident, more of a go-getter. It like drives them crazy because, I guess, now they don't feel like she's the type that they need to protect. She didn't change into someone entirely different. She just GREW as a DEVELOPING character and LEARNED from her EXPERIENCES.
Like. She's alreadynone of the best FF characters ever, for that alone.
If this were for a costume, then I would choose Paine, because I don't recall ever seeing anyone cosplay her (whereas I see Yunas and Rikkus several times a day at conventions), and it would be awesome to see your interpretation. Otherwise, though, I have no room to opine, as I have played neither FFX nor FFX-2. I have yet to own another Playstation since my PS1 died, so many years ago, before I even got to play FFIX.
