Hello! I'm in a HUGE NEED of reading your rant about LR! Could you tell us about how you reacted to the awesome Hopurai content in LR? :)

tensai-shoujo answered:

To begin, I must explain the utter trauma that was my initial reaction to the ending of “Returns” because it plays a huge part in what I thought of all the Hoperai content. XD

I was horribly trolled by a few users on Tumblr. Before I actually saw the cinematic myself, I saw screenshots and read false summaries of what had happened. I was led to believe that Lightning had left her comrades and had come to Earth alone. My anger, confusion, and despair was so overwhelming. I barely had a wink of sleep that night. Seriously! It was one of the WORST nights I have ever had. LOL Every time I saw the poster of Lightning in my room, I felt a stab of pain which made me even contemplate taking the poster down. I hardly spoke to anyone and I didn’t have an appetite all day. When I finally got the courage to go back on Tumblr, I was so relieved (and slightly pissed XD) to find that I had been trolled! Lightning hadn’t left her friends, they had all gone to the new world together.

So, because of this horrendous experience, the true ending seemed all the more perfect to me. I wonder if my thoughts would have been different if I had not been trolled? Nevertheless, it was a beautiful climax to a beautiful series. To be honest though, I sort of wish it had a little~ more closure. But I am overall satisfied with an ending where we can all interpret the final outcome to our liking.

Now, I actually saw the ending before I even saw the final battle with Bhunivelze. I knew Hope was going to be significant to the story, but I never thought he would actually be the final boss! Hope and Lightning are basically the main characters of “Returns”!! Not only did we get more interactions and development then we hoped for, we got a scene where Hope finally confesses that the source of his strength came from Lightning (well, in the JP version he does :P)! Also, I especially love the end where Lightning cries out into the darkness for help. I was seriously expecting Serah to appear and save her, but no - Hope saved her!! He finally fulfilled his promise of protecting her! X3 Like the “Ultimania” stated, the story revolved around two questions: Who will be the last soul Lightning will save and who will then save Lightning? Hope was the answer to both! And like many other people, I also love the scene where Lightning and Serah reach out for Hope and Snow, and when they float up, Snow pushes Hope to Lightning as he goes to Serah. Their future relationship was so heavily implied! Even if Hope doesn’t get his adult body back in the end, I’m sure his feelings for Lightning will eventually end in their union. Besides, seven years is not a big age-gap. My parents are separated by eight and my grandparents have a ten-year gap. ^^

When “Returns” came out in Japan, I was watching Leta’s livestream of the final battle (Leta was one of the first people to upload their playthrough of the game). Leta is not a shipper, but even he commented, “This is like the ultimate Hoperai situation! I guess they’re canon now.” LOL Also, on Twitter, there is a popular account called bombtter that basically tweets things that have “exploded” in popularity. Even they made a tweet saying “Hoperai has exploded!!” and signified how the game made the couple nearly canon. No one was expecting all this perfection in the game..!

Canon forever!

I’m ashamed for totally forgetting to mention these adorable pieces of information from the “FFXIII Ultimania Omega”..! (&gt;_&lt;) Also, I apologize for my horrible scan of the page. ^^; I have indicated the areas of focus with the green arrows.=======================================================
Lightning and Fang arrive to support Hope, and the trio successfully defeat the enemy. Hope returns the knife to Lightning and reports the failure of Operation Nora. A thousand emotions fill Lightning’s heart. She embraces Hope and vows to protect him, now and in the future. And Hope also shares that same feeling of “wanting to protect”.
PICK UP - "A Relationship of Mutual Protection”Feeling strong regret for having driven Hope down the path of revenge, Lightning’s concern over Hope’s safety only continues to grow, even after parting ways with him. From a very young age, Lightning has trained herself to hide any emotions and kindness from outside view. However, upon confirming Hope’s safety, a powerful feeling of relief triggers the sudden release of all of Lightning’s emotions and she envelops Hope with her entire being. Hope, on the other hand, does not merely want to be protected. With assuring words, Hope tells Lightning that he wants to protect her too. Hope puts an end to Operation Nora, has a heart-to-heart with Snow, and confronts his own stubborn conscience. The young boy begins the climb to adulthood. And later, after reuniting and communing with his father, Hope develops even more mental and emotional strength. Hope will stand at the front of his l’Cie friends and guide them. 
=======================================================These inserts really stress the significance of Lightning’s hug. Even at the end when Serah and Dajh were saved, Lightning still held back her feelings and let Snow greet her precious sister. In fact, she doesn’t even move from her spot and she doesn’t initiate their hug either. Lightning waits for Serah. But with Hope, the text says that all of her emotions were suddenly released and she couldn’t hold anything back. She just embraced him “with her entire being”. This really is proof that Lightning and Hope share a very special bond - a bond of “mutual protection”.

Do you think that its possible for SE to make some kind sequel to LR through CGI movie like they did whit Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children???

tensai-shoujo answered:

As much as I would love something like that, I don’t think it will ever happen. The creators have stated many, many, many times that “Returns” would conclude the story of Lightning. (;__;)

the creators have stated many, many many time before that FFXIII was “PS3 exclusive”. But it still move on 360 so who knows… Hope could better than nothing lol
