#ThrowbackThursday: Love Me Like Tidus Loves Yuna - WTFGamersOnly
So lets put aside that Tidus and Yuna don't have the perfect relationship. They apparently have issues just like any other couple. I hear they. But what I like about Tidus and Yuna's relationship is that it isn't the focus Bevelle, Tidus apologizes to Yuna and promises to help her defeat.

Likewise, these voice actors have forever cemented their association with these beloved characters. Many of these long-time favorite animated comic book voice actors and actresses can be found behind the voices of the Final Fantasy X characters too.
Though limited to just their voices, many actors see more of themselves in the characters once the final movie is completed. In many animated films, specific characteristics of the voice actor are translated to their animated onscreen personas.
In the case of Final Fantasy X, however, the animation and graphics had already been completed by the Japanese production company so the characters themselves could not be altered.
Writers were provided with limited information about the original Japanese scripting, so they had more freedom to create their own unique story. Thanks to the creativity of the English writing team, though, they were still able to bring more personalized aspects of the actors to their animated counterparts.
While the addition of the full voice action brought more life and realism to the FF characters, it also brought more headache for the English voice actors.
With the production of Final Fantasy taking place in Japan, the dialogue was, of course, in Japanese. The issue was that the writers had to create scripting that not only matched the animated mouth movements of the characters but still accurately told the story of the game.
Also, the cadence difference in both languages made for many sections of dialogue that contained awkward pauses and characters speaking to themselves. A self-taught musician, Uematsu has single-handedly composed the moving scores for the first Final Fantasy game released in to Final Fantasy IX in While such would be positive if Yuna was unhappy with all aspects of who she was during X, that is decidedly not the case.
She still very much enjoys helping others and doing good for the world, which those around her seem to recognize even better than she does.
Having never fully regained a feeling of meaning during the two years she spent in Besaid, seeing the sphere of Tidus gives that back, goading her into becoming a sphere hunter to search for clues to the fate of her lost love.

Just as she must discover that adopting his behaviors wholesale does not reflect who she truly is, she must also realize that she cannot rely on him exclusively for her sense of self-worth.

With the final battle against Shuyin who is, in a way, the culmination of her own internal struggles; he is at once the shadow that sent her on a fruitless pursuit of Tidus, and someone with whom she can empathize, having lost someone just as he hasthings finally click into place for Yuna, and her true self shines through.
Under certain circumstances, a very revealing scene occurs when Yuna leaves the final battle—as she crosses the Farplane to return to the surface, Tidus appears to her as a specter.

While there are other possible endings wherein this scene does not take place, the sentiment applies across the board: Yuna no longer feels the need to chase after an image of Tidus, and rather than adopting an ill-fitting identity based on how others say she should behave, she finds meaning and purpose within herself.

However, with him gone, she is compelled to find her own source of light, left to the hard work of coming to terms with who she is as a person—and comes out the other side, shining with it. She is on uncertain ground, unsure where she will go from that one moment, the life she once knew long gone.
