Taming familiars and AOE spells

Anyone know if AOE spells that were cast by your party members *just* after a familiar has hearts coming out of it will kill off that familiar instead of allowing you to tame it?

I swear I just missed a tame because Esther's drongo did bubble wave or something and since its an AOE spell, it killed the tamable familiar before I could switch to her and use seranade :(

If this is the case I'm gonna be taking off all AOE tricks on AI familiars...

I believe so. As soon as I see hearts I press L1 and switch off Oliver's familiar. Then immediately switch to the girl and spam X because all default actions from that point move towards serenating.

Man I wish the AI had more options, and they dont even mention what "provide backup" in the tactics mean..

Looks like I'll have to take off all AOE spells from AI familiars then :\
