This can be classified as both a “Filler Post” and an addition to OG’s lists. Also, this praise is directed towards the English version of Milla.
BTW, this is only after playing through the prologue.
Reason 1: Milla, imo, is the most attractive Tales protagonist in the series so far. Hotter than Tear, Chloe, Sheena, Rutee and Pascal. I haven’t played any other Tales games than the ones these lovely ladies star in.
Reason 2: Minae Noji. Some complain about Minna’s English voice actress being too low and not befitting. A troll even called Milla a transvestite because of this. Honestly, giving her a low, adult voice adds to her sex appeal. It not only makes me take her more seriously when she’s being serious, but being voiced by a (as of this writing) 40 year old Asian-American cougar who’s still got “it”, imo, also adds bonus points. Maybe it’s my attraction to MILFs and Cougars doing the talking but I don’t care.

Reason 4: Funky hair. That’s it. Her hairstyle is both funny and mesmerizing at the same time. So much so that after buying her excellent Swimsuit DLC, I didn’t bother to change her hairstyle or make her wear the straw hat.
Reason 5: The fact that she doesn’t exactly come off as cold. She’s more serious than cold blooded. I don’t know if she’s going to loosen up later on in the game but knowing the “cold” stereotype, she may. I don’t mind, seeing her soft side will be equally interesting.
Reason 7: If Milla “Yovovitch” and Dr Jude “Law” do end up together…I wouldn’t mind. Jude Law looks like a likable male lead.
I think that about covers it for one hour of gameplay. Maybe my opinion will change over time, but for now, Milla Maxwell, reincarnation of the ruler of Spirits (Reason 8), has my undivided attention.
P.S.: Look up Maxwell and it’ll be made clear why I also find this choice for a human form funny. No spoilers here, as this is revealed minutes into the prologue level.
