Easy here as well, same as a friend in my area that also bought the game. We both just wanted to enjoy the world, story, characters, combat/jobs and so on, and didn't want difficulty to ruin that experience.
This is obviously not the way everyone wants to play a game, but that's what having difficulty OPTIONS are great, we can each get what we want out of the game, for the most part.

Sometimes I accidentally left it on when fighting bosses, but I never put the game on easy on purpose just to play through it.
The game isn't very hard on normal. So playing on easy wasn't really an option. Plus, I enjoyed the challenge the early game and late game had on normal; it fits well with the story of the Warriors Of Light actually trying to surmise the evil.
If I get a girlfriend, I'd like to take her into a cardboard box.
