I was playing my jp copy of final fantasy 13 today, and at a certain point on pulse, I heard something rather odd...
just before you fight balanders again, when he is pretending to be serah, he addresses lightning by a different name, I think. If I'm reight, I heard him call lightning (yes, a spoiler within a spoiler)
Is this her actual name, or did I just mishear/misunderstand it?
Someone please tell me I'm wrong!
"What happens when your actions end up ruining someones life? How do you pay for what you've done?"
They say that Versus grows on you. But then again, so does cancer.
Yes, it is her real name - her fucking cop-out real name.
"Golly gosh, Dev Rangers, what do we make her real name?"
"I think everyone's used to calling her Lightning. She IS Lightning. We've painted ourselves into a pretty corner."
"How about we keep her name as Lightning, just in French?"
God, I'm tired.
Keep an eye on me, I'm going to do some scheming. Here I go--

...Eclair's not a name, its a pastry with custard creme...and Lightning is a weather phenomenon. Although one is delicious and the other is just plain cool, this, used in Final Fantasy(meant to be taken seriously-and true FF fans MAY agree), this is unacceptable. But then, we do have the Flans(and their cousins the Mousses). "Flan"(no, not Fran, Flan), or "Mousse" might actually be a future playable character in an upcoming title.*Shiver*
I just can't take her or her name seriously. The game developers apparently didn't.
""FFXIII doesn't even...suck, its just...not a game. All it is is linear cinematics and random command pressing. Its an unplayable waste."
1860–65; < F: lit., lightning (flash), OF esclair, n. deriv. of esclairier to light, flash < VL *exclariāre, for L exclārāre, equiv. to ex- ex- 1 + clārāre to make bright, deriv. of clārus clear
yeah Eclair mean lightning in French. I know that because it's the name of one of the most hated girl characters in anime - Eclair Tonnerre (Lightning Thunder) from the anime Ouran High School Host Club. She appeared only in the last episode and is one of the biggest bitches in anime.
Better than her going. "No you guys can call me my real name." Then everyones eyes grow wide and one asks "Well what is it." Then she pulls out a birth certificate and says "Lightning. I got the papers finalized a few weeks ago. It's official guys!!"
Because everyone knows tofu comes from Unicorns...
