They're all hideous. Remember when SE was so fashionable that they could collab with Prada like it was nothing? I'd dress Lightning up in those outfits, and they were intended for men! --- "I don't have a heart. I sold it for beer." - ValcristPL(s) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C5_VbK6VCo
Lightning comes off as a genderless mannequin to me so I find her "sexy" outfits hilarious. --- Sazh - Racist caricature and worst FF character ever. Don't agree ? Your problem. http://www.youtube.com/user/PrismSuicide/videos - DOA5U Eliot user
I like fanservice, but only when it's done right. Out of character fanservice is just awkward. Lightning as a character wouldn't parade around in bikini armor and cat ears. --- Stop your ignorance of Final Fantasy XI's awesome story. See it here. http://ffxicutscenes.blogspot.com/
Why are people so bothered when characters show skin? Does it affect you in any way?
I hate all kinds of fanservice.
As a pretty big fan, her sanctity bothers me. Not as a woman, but as a character. It's not about the outfits being slutty or what, it's about unsuitability. Fanservice doesn't necessarily mean skin, it just means something that the character usually WILL NOT wear by normal circumstances. For Lightning to show skin, a 'sexy side', is fanservice. Somewhat.
I kicked the same fuss when a RAIDEN suit from MGS became available for Ezio Auditore.
The same reason there weren't Mass Effect or Ezio Auditore costumes in LR anymore. Kitase said Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed fans, as well as Final Fantasy fans were all somewhat offended by them in XIII-2. Tomb Raider is an exception because 'It's Square's flagship title, blah blah'. Some nonsense.
tl;dr I hate fanservice --- Lightning Collection: http://imgur.com/a/ibrsD#0 Tumblr: http://raitningz.tumblr.com/
...First of all, what is with the hatred for fanservice the last few years?
Second, why can't a strong woman wear a bikini? Why does she have to cover up? Wouldn't be a sign of a stronger woman to be able to wear something revealing if they choose to and yet still remain their dignity?
But, seriously, there's been a massive amount of hate for fanservice lately. Not just games but movies and comics too.
