With stuff like I AM NO FAL'CIE SLAVE to Etro/Bhunivelze's lackey, chaos being used as a plot hole filler, dummy Etro and the grand soap opera of the gods, I really do wonder how his mind works.

That's why I'm playing this bonkers series. The gameplay's fun, but trying to make sense of the plot is the real clincher here.

I enjoy it.

But since this is going to be the 400th I hate Toriyama topic for the day, I'll take my leave.

Is that really you, Elice?

You once said that understanding XIII-2's plot was barely difficult for you.

Toriyama didn't write the entirety of "Fabula Nova Chrystallis" did he?

It wasn't, I find it more difficult to understand people who don't understand it, but that doesn't mean that I can't express confusion with some of the choices Toriyama made. For example, I don't feel as if Lightning had a choice when she was brought to Valhalla and became Etro's knight.

Nojima wrote the mythology and he's co-writing XV. He didn't really have anything to do with Type-0 or the Lightning Saga.
