Who's your favorite FF character to fall in love with?



28.5% Yuna
13.7. Tifa
11.2% Aeris
9.0% Yuffie
5.4 % Riona

Why do you want to be with Yuna?
"It's beautiful she wants to fight for others." 24 year old in electrical Engineering.

"She's brave even though she's a woman." 24 year old in IT.

"I love girls that are high class." 26 year old office worker.

"She's by far the prettiest." 28 year old in Agriculture/Service industry.

Why do you want to be with Tifa?
"She would be fun to be with." 29 year old in service industry.

"Black hair is sexy." 28 year old in finance.

"Her breasts bounce." 23 year old in finance.

"Childhood friends are best!" 27 year old in maintenance.

Why do you want to be with Aeris?
"She seems like a good listener." 26 year old in service industry.

"I want to be in love with someone who has died needlessly." 24 year old in the automotive industry.

"She prim and proper." 27 year old in communication.

Why do you want to be with Yuffie?
"Her carefree spirit puts me at ease." 24 year old student.

"She's cute but mischievous." 28 year old in communications.

"I love girls that are self-centered." 29 year old in Medicine (note - I might be missing the subtleties of this one.)

Why do you want to be with Riona?
"Even if we have disagreements we can still be together." 26 year old in business.

"Beautiful to look at." 29 year old in Mechanics.

"While she looks cute, she also has a strong face." 24 year old in the automotive industry.

What about the other characters?
Rikku: "Every day with her would be bright and cheerful." 28 year old in IT.
Lightning: "She gives off a strong presence, and I like that air of darkness." 25 year old in mechanics.
Tina: "Cause I like FF6." 20 year old in IT.

Summary
Gentle Yuna was number one. Her looks and caring personality were large factors. Others liked her cheerful and proper demeanor. Big sexy Tifa ranked in at number 2. She seemed like a girl who would helped support you when times were low. This was a major factor for a majority of our male participants.

Aeristhlyaham;bka's pure and gentle spirit made her come in at number 3. Also from FF7 was ninja tomboy Yuffie. Because one of her qualities is that she has problems with vehicles, it makes one want to nurse her if she got unhealthy.

While there were many different reasons given, the common theme in all of them was their personality. The girls of Final Fantasy have a never say die spirit that our boys hope to find in someone they love.

Thanks Broco and DAIS for translation clarification.

Casual searching doesn't bring up a good choice for a group Final Fantasy women shot. Figured people would be all over this.

YOu obviously never searched http://danbooru.donmai.us with yuna (protip: there's a reason why i'm not giving a direct link).

hm. Just looking at a machine translation, where do you get "artificial armor" from? 乗り物 seems to be "vehicle".

bizlingo sez: "There is weak one side to the vehicle, too and when the physical condition worsens, I want to nurse."
google sez: "Weak because some aspect of the vehicle, and I take care of is to increase physical condition becomes worse."

I thought maybe this might be abouf Yuffie's aloofness and general emotional immatury, but I'm pretty sure it's actually referring to the running joke where she has motion sickness whenever you talk to her while the party is in a vehicle.
(physical disability/sickness is still pretty moe, right?)

Your interpretation sounds correct to me. Yeah, it doesn't make much sense without the context of that running joke. The sentence is, "Also, because one of her qualities is that she has problems with vehicles, it makes one want to nurse her if she got unhealthy."

I think Rudie misread 一面 to mean "armor", because the second kanji is sometimes used with that meaning. In this context, it's actually an abstract term that I translated as "quality" above (literally, it means "one side of").

I've barely been using my Japanese at all in the last couple of years, but it hasn't totally rusted yet. *cracks knuckles*

I'd heard 見た目 before but couldn't quite nail it down either. My trusty old New Anchor dictionary says 見た目 is an idiomatic way of saying "appearance", typically as part of a positive phrase to describe an attractive person or object such as mita-me na ii, mita-me wa kirei, mita-me wa hanayaka. It's a nice expression, like the beauty is strong enough to become part of the observing eyes themselves.

Anyway, the "見た目がタイプでした" phrase means basically "her style is my type".

but by "vehicles", they really mean machines, right? isn't that yuffie's quirk? or am I thinking of cyan.

come on man don't you remember Yuffie gets motion sickness whenever she rides the airship or boats. in this case 乗り物 definitely refers to vehicles only (you could roughly literally translate its components as 乗り "ride" and 物 "thing")

jeeze louise this post is already off to a terrible start but ill keep going

"Her breasts bounce." 23 year old in finance.


not nitpicking but only clarifying because i think the literal translation is hilarious

胸に飛び込みたい (as opposed to 胸が飛ぶ、which is how i think you read it) means that the dude "wants to dive headlong into them breasts". all things considered probably one of the less creepy reasons of the article.

Quote:
"I love girls that are self-centered." 29 year old in Medicine (note - I might be missing the subtleties of this one.)


i think you pretty much nailed it but this one is tougher because I think it has a typo/casual usage that I haven't heard before (わがままさに should be わがままさいに) so I think it should be translated as "there is a certain charm when she is being selfish" but I mean your version means pretty much the exact same thing so I am going to stop wasting my saturday night.
