"Let me see if I'm understanding this. Freya is one of the main heroines of a JRPG — and she doesn't
at any point have the hots for the hero, never
needs to be rescued by the hero, and in fact shows up the hero in a monster-slaying competition? (Unless the player really knows what he's doing during the Festival of the Hunt sequence, that is.) And wait — does Freya really offer zero
fanservice? Not even the slightest effort is made to cater to Secret of NIMH
fanboy furries? (..) And am I really not imagining the game, when Freya ends up with the guy she has the hots for — a guy who, again, isn't the game's male main character? Whoa. Not only might Freya be the best Dragoon in Final Fantasy
, the best female party member in the whole series (at least from a feminist perspective)."
