It was awesome, but I agree last year's was a little better.
I was really hoping for Aerith's Theme again, and I really wanted to hear Melodies of Life & Suteki Da Ne sang by Susan, I thought that would have been awesome.
Not many cosplayers again this year, but me and some friends went all dressed up. Quite a few people took photo's of us, so if you have any send us a link, it would be awesome to see some. I was dressed as Rinoa with two SEED members in uniform :)
It felt like they played more last year too...they managed at least one from each main title like this time, but also with Liberi Fatali, Bombing Mission, Aeriths Theme, Dancing Mad...ah well. The new extended Opera was easily the highlight. And the battles medley at the end was a brilliant surprise, totally didn't expect Seymour's Theme. I bet the choir had a lot of fun rehearsing the Chocobo medley ;P
The program is full of premieres, classics and wildcards, including…
FINAL FANTASY IV: Battle With Four Fiends (Uematsu)
FINAL FANTASY V: Main Theme (Uematsu)
FINAL FANTASY VI: The Phantom Forest (Uematsu)
FINAL FANTASY XI: Vana'diel March (Mizuta)
FINAL FANTASY XII: The Dalmasca Estersand (Sakimoto)
PLUS: Nobuo Uematsu's new version of FINAL FANTASY VI: Opera "Maria & Draco" and other beloved classics such as FINAL FANTASY VII: One Winged Angel and FINAL FANTASY X: Zanarkand – and new SURPRISE MEDLEYS!

Sooo, I try to buy tickets for me and my friends during my lunch break (12:00), and the website says they're already sold out? Wtf! I went there right after I left work, and apparently I got the very last ticket they had. :|
I am sure the normal tickets were gone by 15 but it looks like there are still some VIP ones. I managed to grab mine early enough, was in around first 200 people when I joined queue around 08:45 (took around 20-25 minutes waiting)
