How many sidequests are there? Are there any quest hub cities?

Just trying to get some idea on how many quests there are.

Also, I heard this game has one really big city in it. What is it named and how big is it?

Can you compare the size of the city to any other city in another final fantasy game? Like, is it bigger than Rabanastra or Luca from ffx (luca wasn't that big but it gave the impression it was huge).

I just want to know how big it is.

Less than 160 Sidequests.
In short: 1 Fragment equals 1 sidequests, though there are a few mandatory fragments. I can't point out how many of them ARE mandatory, so don't let me lie. I'd say 30, if I had to pick a number. Some fragments are just plain hidden.

And, no, there's no quest hub city. Unless you count Historia Crux, which is teh select screen on where you'd like to travel.
Every place in the timeline has a few quests. The ganme is happy to tell you how many fragments are hidden in each area.

well i just looked online and the academia city looks absolutely huge. How far into the main game can you access this city?

20-30 hours, probably, but there's not much to do there.
KrahenProphet and Kana are on opposite ends of the Awesome Spectrum.
