Please, no spoilers in the comments (I'm in the chapter 6, before Valhalla)
This is a fanart I made for the 25 years of Final Fantasy.
I've been following the saga since 1997, and played every single game from the main saga.
I still can't understand why all the rant on FFXIII. The gameplay is much better than FFFXII and the characters are more humans than in any other game (they have completely different behaviours, personalities and make mistakes. Vanille looks like one of those Disney sitcom characters and Hope is just a teenager who saw his mother die if front of him). And about the sequel, it's a lot better than FFX-2.
I have a special rant on FFXI and FFXIV. After all things Sakaguchi told about the essence of the series they make 2 almost storyless games, escaping from it's mais goal (to tell a complete fantasy tale from a different style each game). And in about 25 years: who is still playing XI and XIV with the servers off and no story?
That's why I choose to make a fanart from the last real Final Fantasy game before it's 25th birthday.
I've choosed XIII-2 because until Noctis comes out this is for me my last real Final Fantasy Game.
I love the 2 sisters because they are the typical FF characters, unlike all the others in those 2 games.
I loved drawing them, even the moogle.
I gave the title "Separate" ways because this is how Lightning and Serah's Story is told. Serah looks happy but this is not her mood in the story. Maybe it's because she has a Wild Artifact on her hands.
