I completely understand why you two like this game. Competent female characters galore! Visual and cultural bits of Japan buried in a fantasy world -- that was one of the things that hooked me on FFX -- complex plots, complex characters, magic meta and derring-do, angst hammer, and some eccentric humor to keep it from getting too heavy.
Alas, I have a hunch that the reason why I especially like this game, the plethora of competent women in authority and on the field, may be why its sales weren't great.
I've picked up Lucretia (who reminds me of Anthy) and just fought my first naval battle. Time to get back to RL and work to make up for 3 days of gaming. But thank you!
