Three vocal collections were created to commemorate the female lead characters of Final Fantasy X-2. These three albums each have four tracks each, with the first being an arrangement of their main theme, the second being an original melody, and the final tracks featuring their karaoke versions. The Final Fantasy X-2 Vocal Collection -Yuna- album contains the tracks “To You” and “Morning Glow”, sung by Mayuko Aoki as Yuna.


On “To You”, a passionate piano part brings us to the gorgeous voice of Mayuko Aoki. The arranger completely transforms the original carefree jazz instrumental into a soft soothing vocal ballad. The best thing about this arrangement is that Matsueda and Eguchi only take the melody from the original track. The melancholy vocal performance puts a new perspective on the original and, in combination with the soft piano and echoing cello, creates a heavenly atmosphere. Also excelling in development, the introduction of the choir Misumi is a particularly welcome addition.

The second track, “Morning Glow,” is an arrangement of “Eternity” from the Original Soundtrack. With the original melody being a piano solo, this track is a complete make over that lasts twice as long. The instrumentation is completely changed, as the piano is removed and a guitar is put in its place, giving a greater pop influence. Mayuko Aoki comes in with the main melody at the 1:02 mark, and surprises listeners with her delicate performance. It’s another meaningful track to represent Yuna’s feelings of her homeland.

There are also two karaoke tracks on this release, in addition to a DVD featuring a music video, vocalist interview, and game promotion movie. Not bad, but it’s probably the two songs that most people want to hear.


Final Fantasy X-2 Vocal Collection -Yuna-‘s depiction of Yuna is just as accurate as the game itself. It takes a sophisticated approach through its instrumentation and vocalist, while providing fresh perspective on two melodies. It is the best release in a trilogy of vocal albums.
