** I always though it was closer to a callback. he was wearing the uniform before he got bejudged and then he entered his battle uniform. So I thought that he had changed back after leaving the clan, thus losing the new uniform and going back to the old one, witch was his school uniform.

*** Maybe Montblanc has a friend whose name ''also'' happens to be Marche.



** The teacher in the start of the game is Mr. Blair. The person Luso sees in the library at the game's end is Mewt Randel all grown up (the game does take place several years after FFTA so his appearance obviously changed) and he didn't look like a woman to me. If you paid attention to Luso's script throughout the whole game, he's pretty much happy with the adventures he was having and was ready to go home when the time came and once he did go home, he looked forward to what each new day would bring him. Then again, FFTA2's main story isn't as deep, but probably was for the better compared to FFTA, which was controversial due to Marche's motives.

*** No Gifted One uses their skills, but their Gift appears somewhat by what defines the battle with them. Ljda fights you with monsters (thus her ability is to charm other units), Elde sacrificed herself to keep other people safe (thus that ability kills Adelle to revive every other character), Viola died of heartbreak (and her ability does more damage the more you are hurt), Wermut asks you a potion for his broken leg (hurts and slows)... Ok, some connections are tenous at best, but bear with me, it makes sense.
** Remember that Adell unlocked her own power last. She had to put a lot of work into learning the herritor power before she got her own. As to why they arn't used, there could be a few reasons.

** If it just created an alternative Ivalice instead of putting them in the real ivalice (implied in A2), then is this the "real" Montblanc while the montblanc in the first Tactics Advance game is someone imagined by Marche?

to:

** Either way, what does it mean that Montblanc says Marche's name if he's KO'd in combat? Does that mean the real Montblanc knew Marche somehow, either through a dream or through Ivalice itself getting twisted around? Why isn't there more evidence left behind of the Gran Grimoire's effect on the real Ivalice?

*** I'd like to spend my summer holiday defeating monsters in another dimension with a FiveManBand...
** SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack


** I like to imagine that the book just appeared in the library to appear before Luso. Kind of like the book in ''TheNeverendingStory''.
*** 'TheNeverendingStory'' is a pretty good comparison for FFTA IMO.

to:

**** Well, you're simplifying it immensely, and ignoring the fact that Khamja's smart enough not to make it too obvious, and that Carm Mercantile actually is doing good. Plus, hey, clan points and free items for a tiny amount of gil you'll make back in a mission or two anyway. What's the big deal?





to:

\n** Even if you can hold a book in each hand, you'd still need one free hand to turn the pages. Thus they only hold one book at a time.





to:

\n***Would I stop donating to the Salvation Army if the head(s) were skimming off the top for their own gain? Abso-freakin-lutely. If no one else in the organization was smart enough to notice that "Hey, were not actually getting as much money as our books say we are," and no one investigates that, then they're not a group I'd be giving my hard earned Gil to.


* Maybe since Raptor is the only Gria job that can equip shields without Shieldbearer, and they didn't want Ravager's using it.

* Have you ever tried to swing something as large as an encyclopedia or even a coffee-table book with a single hand? It's really not designed for that. ''REALLY'' not designed for that.

* Hurdy lacks backstory, at least when compared to Luso, Adelle, and Cid, I see that Hurdy's role is only playing music, composing music, and [[spoiler:being the point of Montblanc's appearance]]. It bugs me more than Montblanc.




* Is it just me, or did Illua feel like a bit of a wasted character? Don't get me wrong, she was a great villain, but they could have taken her story in any number of interesting directions. She has a Grimoire, and that's never really explained- what if she was from Luso's world, long ago, who decided to stay in order to dominate this new world? Or, perhaps, her goal could have been to destroy or invade Luso's world as opposed to a vague search for "power." Instead she subscribed to a more generic "take over the world" plan, which, while functional, was a little disappointing
