I will probably offend a lot of people because of this, but I never felt anything during any of Yeul’s deaths. I was waiting for that moment when I would at least feel the urge to cry but it never happened. Noel and Caius’s descriptions of her humanity felt really exaggerated because of it. I never saw what made her so special other than that she was thin and pretty, and died a lot.
For me personally, Yeul has always been more of a concept than a person. We didn’t really get to see much of her personality beyond a few details, and maybe (just maybe) this was done on purpose so as to not obscure the idea behind Yeul.
Yeul’s deaths were tragic because they were inevitable and because they were consistently stretched across all of time and space. For people like Noel to get caught up in the life of just one Yeul and to get to know that incarnation of her and to know in the back of your mind that she would die very early on is tragic. People grow to care about her and are robbed of the time they would get to spend with her were she a “regular” human being.
On a larger scale, the ending of XIII-2 basically told us that it was impossible to fight fate, and Yeul’s cycle of death and rebirth is the ultimate evidence of that. I’m not saying you have to feel something, but it is pretty goddamned tragic.
I’m sorry, Yeul ._.
