New Homes, New Dreams: Why Yuna Had to Lose Tidus to Be Whole in Final Fantasy X and X-2
While X-2 was decidedly more divisive than its predecessor (with fans decrying its bubbly and light atmosphere in comparison to X‘s more mature and emotional storyline), there is one thing that X-2 does right: Yuna’s story. Or, more specifically, it works in conjunction with X to truly emphasize Yuna’s struggle after the end of X, show how she changes and grows, and makes one thing pointedly clear: losing Tidus was one of the best things that could have happened to her. In Final FantasyX and X-2, Yuna’s story is a journey of the self wherein she needed to lose Tidus in order to be whole.
IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT X-2 “RUINING” YUNA OR THE GOOD ENDING OF X-2 “RUINING” HER STORY, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS. YES, THE CAPS LOCK ARE NECESSARY.
