“Sousuke’s future wasn’t explicitly described, so I’d like viewers to watch episode 13 and draw their own conclusions. Sousuke’s spent the last two years bearing this pain, and the decision he ultimately came to was what we saw in episode 10, so he can’t just come out and say, “I’m going to try swimming again,” easily. Plus, I’m sure hearing Rin tell him, “Come back!” must have been really painful for him. After all, if he could do that, he would’ve done so already. He can’t—and that’s why he gave up. So for Sousuke, those words were probably more painful than anything else. But on the flip side, hearing that from Rin of all people…was probably something he’d been wishing for from the bottom of his heart.”—Utsumi Hiroko, Spoon 2di (via fencer-x)

The way I see it, it's too early to ring the alarm on FFXV. The way the game seems they'll be doing a lot of travelling and in every other FF game when the characters went on a journey they recruited more party members. There simply has to be more party members and I'm hoping they'll be female. Either that or Stella will have a parallel storyline with a party of her own.
