Quotes

Claire 'Lightning' Farron: [upon defeating Ereshkigal] Even in this dying world, plenty of people still believe in God. They believe that they are special, and that God loves them unconditionally. They believe he is looking out for them. Gods exist all right. But they've got their own agenda. They sure didn't make this world and put people in it because they love us. They just wanted to create new tools.

The last one, a perfect ending
18 March 2019 | by sibylbryanSee all my reviews

Final Fantasy 13 series has been with me for four years,Today I finally finished it,Even if it's not easy But it brought me many good memories. Courage, friendship, love,It has always been an inseparable theme,I earnestly accomplished every task in it,It gave me enough time to experience the game,Aggregation, separation, reunion,Lumina is her weak side even though Lightning is stronger she was still afraid of loneliness but eventually all her friends came back to her , together they defeated the great gods.the end of a journey is a new journey,I won't forget their story.
