Remember when Toriyama said Lightning is like a rose

He thinks Lightning is passionate, lovely and beautiful.

What's wrong with that? He's supposed to show his passion for his own creations.. Though the way he had put it was certain cringeworthy, yes.

Find me a respectable writer talking about one of his or her creations like that. Perhaps the process will enlighten you as to why Toriyama's presentation was so weird.

Also it was just a terrible presentation content-wise. He doesnt even understand what a theme is.


His occupation is not primarily write. That was a presentation meant for locals. Perhaps it isn't weird in Japanese contexts for writers to talk about their characters like that?

It is a terrible presentation, yes. The neon sign and rose vase was also baffling to me, though roses seem to be a Lightnjng thing, considering the petals when she does her thingies.

But I am able to empathize with his love for Lightning, so I might be biased. Idk. I thought it was fine.

The dude wrote the story for 13 and its sequel what do you expect. He was spouting awkward crap like this since the beginning, remember, "Lightning is the strongest female in the FF series," 'cause I do.

It's obnoxious when gameFAQers rank the Final Fantasy games in their sigs. Like, I don't care.

They say she's low down, but it's just a rumor I don't believe 'em.

Writing and directing are his primary functions in the games that he works on, so he's definitely a writer. And while certain things about that presentation might be less awkward from a different cultural perspective, it's not going to change the fact that he doesnt really understand what "theme" means and the presentation as a whole was pretentious as hell and had very little information of value.

I agree with that. I couldn't quite understand the point of the presentation, if it was to inform or to create hype, then it did very poorly.

Lightning is neither of those things.

What the hell was he talking about. That presentation was so cringe worthy...

I don't think he even knows what we what he was trying to do when coming up with the story.
