So why does everyone hate Lightning again? *Spoilers*

Mind you I only played the JP version and only listened to a few samples of her English dub.

1. She has a lot of emotion and expression in her voice, so I don't see why people find her monotonous.
2. She's voiced by the legendary Maaya Sakamoto (Voice of Aeris ^^)
3. She's really caring to the people she actually cares for or grows to care for. I felt sorry for her whenever she talked about how she failed to protect Serah and was on a headstrong resolve to rescue her from her seemingly impossible to defy fate (untouchable crystal or zombie, both cases mean losing Serah). She also grew very affectionate to Hope starting chapter 4. When Hope was sleeping and called out: "Mom?" in his slumber. Lightning responded curiously, "Who was your mom?"
4. She's headstrong and is very straightforward in her speech and initiative. She likes to get things done. She was flawed at first because she only believed in herself, but she later grew to respect her party members. Otherwise, she is very focused on her mission and doesn't dilly-dally around and uses a very direct speech. Milla Maxwell's character from Xillia is similar to Lightning's in that they both are headstrong, focused, have a few social quirks, but in the end both are likable and popular in their own respective game series!

I still don't know why everyone hates her so much here.

I also don't understand why Hope is disliked as well. He's very charming with his super formal speech, and it's really funny when Hope addresses Lightning as Light-san (Raito-san) with respect while Lightning responds back with extremely informal speech.

I really like Lightning, and I'm buying Lightning Returns because she was the most interesting character right above Fang in FFXIII and I generally am liking the XIII saga even more. It's weird because XIII in general has surprisingly exceeded my expectations since the downward spiral known as VII-XII. This saga is a step in the right direction, and XIV is very good to boot as well. I am looking forward for the return of Square's golden age (I-VI) in this modern age.

First of all , you never played the Japanese version. You just heard or read that it has a superior dub, but they are both equally average, but you know all too well.

Second, those who hate a fictive videogame character should seek medical attention. Ofcourse you drive the hatebandwagon because you like to troll the FFXV board and , to a lesser extent this board and thus like to state opinions that are not necessairly yours just to get poisonous reactions , but you know all too well .

Third , Milla Maxwell is voiced also by Alli Hillis and are just stirrin up a ruse and you know all too well.

Lastly, "negative spiral since VII-XII" is your opinion, or actually not. Like i said, you like to state opinions that are not necessairly yours just to get poisonous reactions , but you know all too well .

Have a great day.

Milla is not voiced by Hillis.
That's Minae Noji.

Hillis does voice Presa in it though.

Yes, sorry i was misinformed i checked and you were right. I havent even finished Xillia yet so i was not sure. Her voice does have comparison with Hillis though.

Mainly? Cause I am sick of looking at her. They need to take the spotlight away from her already.

:( Me too, i could just import , but its a beast to get through. Im thinking why SQ EX is so hesitant about it.?They make stupid decisions the last 5 years. DQVII would sell like sweet pie and if Nintendo localises it would move their handheld.
