Is it obligatory to play FFXIII first to understand this game?

Long short story, got FFXIII years ago, never really finished it (stopped at chapter 10 or something?) and don't have saves from back then any more. I'm not looking forward to just replaying the whole game but if I must...

Anyway, thanks in advance for the help.

This game has plot summaries of each of the chapters in FFXIII available from the start menu.

You probably don't need to finish XIII to understand XIII-2. Only brings up the ending mostly.
