Even in the ultimate summon, Shin did not die completely and revived after a certain period of time, but the time when Shin did not appear-the Nagi-bushi had a fleeting rest of the people’s hearts.

The boy Tida, who met her from Zanalcand to Spira, accompanies Yuna as a guard to protect her summoner, despite her unknown world. The destruction of the subjugation squad to confront the Shin, the identity of Shin revealed, and the betrayal of the temple-the shocking events hit the Tiida many times, but they overcome it.
