You only fight with four characters, while you have a total of six; complete with Hand Wave as to what the other characters are doing while your main party is fighting, with the exception of the final battle, where a skit right before it says that 2 of the 6 party members will be in charge of finding and maintaining a safe escape route as the other 4 take out Van and free Lorelei.
Everything seems to come in sevens: The AI can actually use items themselves. Natalia is often seen as wasteful, but her AI does seem to know never to touch the expensive or rare items.

They are a pain in the ass to learn how to useand either require a particularly unfavorable HP level to activate or have a high cost associated with themgald for Anise. Also, Luke and Anise's only be used once per battle. This means Jade and Tear cannot use their Mystic Artes until someone else uses one with no extension, and nobody can cast a fonic arte.

Lampshaded by Anise in a skit. Because Destiny Says So: Holy crap, does it ever. Why don't the people of Auldrant do anything when something bad happens? Because the Score predicted it, so there's no point meddling. Why does Grand Maestro Mohs want to start a war between the two major superpowers of the world? Because the Score said it would happen.

- Top 10 Romantic Relationships (In Various Media)
NPCs admit to deciding what to have for dinner based entirely on the Score. But that was how it was always destined to go in such an unpleasant love.
Lelouch and CC Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion This was a romance that was all based in subtlety. CC was the one who gave Lelouch his geass.
At first, the two have a somewhat adversarial relationship, with CC seeing Lelouch as a means to ends unknown. However, as the story progresses, you see her bonding with him, seeing his resolve and it awakening a fire inside of her that was long-since gone.
Eventually, she confesses seeing him as more than a comrade. In the first series, the last interaction she has with Lelouch is kissing him, before going off to fight. She finds him again and helps him regain his memories with another kiss. From then on, they are significantly closer, but they still keep a kind of distance from one-another, due to their own histories.
Kim and Ron Kim Possible Mock this if you must, but there was a lot of authentic feeling and good examination of high school relationships in this one. How Kim and Ron got together even felt authentic. Having been a loyal friend and comrade to her exploits, Ron Stoppable was probably the best friend a person could ask for.
When he finally realizes that he has feelings for Kim, it is an interesting look into his psyche as he is trying to process it. Kim initially denies her feelings for Ron, with him being a guy in the place all guys hate — the friendzone. But he is there for her when she needs him most, showing her that the best guy is right in front of her. Plus, it makes Ron a hero for escaping the friendzone.
As the series goes on and you see their relationship develop, there are a lot of good and realistic moments, despite the nature of the series. They fight, they have issues and at the end, they worry about going off to college and being apart. It was a cute little couple and it made the show that much better. Zuko and Mai Avatar: Zuko and Mai, on the other hand, are a very fascinating couple. Both of them coming from very harsh upbringings, their relationship has a lot of history.
After he returned from being banished, she rekindled an old flame. What made their relationship work was how real it felt. The fights they had were intense! Their harsh moments were as engaging as their sympathetic moments. Plus, they actually had a very good break-up and reunion, with her desperate to understand why he left and still showing she cares, even though he hurt her.
It was a nice dichotomy between two very introverted people.
Luke fon Fabre
When Will and Lyra first met, it was a very confrontational event, with Lyra charging out of a building and attacking him. From there came a very slow building of love that eventually explodes into a mountain of passion. They are very different people, with Lyra being a silver-tongued devil who is outgoing and Will being a quiet introvert who just happens to have a very quick mind underneath his outward frigid bravado. The two grow to support each other despite their similar stubborn attitudes, and Tear ultimately confesses her love for Luke near the end of the story, after the battle with Van in Eldrant.
Tear is a Seventh Fonist capable of casting unique spells known as Fonic Hymns. While Natalia's healing artes focus on single targets, Tears utilizes area-based healing artes such as Healing Circle and Revitalize.
Apart from being one of the primary healers of the game, the aforementioned Fonic Hymns also grant powerful offensive spells such as Judgment and Grand Cross.
While she primarily remains a long-ranged caster, she is adept to fighting up close as well. Cut-in image for Tales of the World: Tear wields various staves and wands typical of the healer class, but her regular attack is unique in that her weapon fires out small orbs of fonic light a short distance, allowing her to keep enemies away.
