Motomu Toriyama Admits He Wants to Marry Lightning

In a shocking admission by Final Fantasy XIII and Lightning Returns director Motomu Toriyama, he says that he created Lightning to be like his perfect wife and hopes that one day he will marry someone like her or just marry Lightning herself.squareenixsureknowshowtopickthemSome have noticed that Toriyama has a slight obsession with Lightning, focusing on aspects like her breast size over spending time to fix the gameplay or the story in her games. Famitsu has reported that during a Q&A session with the Lightning Returns staff, Toriyama admitted to wanting to marry Lightning.

Q: Why continue Lightning’s story instead of moving onto another unrelated setting?

Nobuhiro Goto (character modeler): I created some character concepts unrelated to Lightning but…

Masaru Suzuki (designer): Toriyama-san demanded that we quit working on that and focus solely on Lightning once more.

Toriyama: I’ll admit that I said those things. There’s no shame in wanting to continue the story of a character that so many people love.

Goto: I would argue that only you love her, Toriyama-san.

Toriyama: That may be the case. But I do love her with all my heart. It’s the reason I wanted every little imperfection corrected in Lightning Returns so of course I wanted her breasts to be bigger and for them to jiggle. It’s only natural for a man to want his woman to look perfect.

Goto: I spent so many nights working on the improved model.

Suzuki: I told him that it was very unhealthy for Goto-san to spend so many hours on that character model. Instead of addressing my concerns, Toriyama-san told me to come up with a husband-like character that would look like himself.

Toriyama: That’s not going in the game though. It’s for my own personal use because I really do want to marry her.

(few seconds of silence)

Toriyama: What? I mean, if I can’t find a girl like her in real life, I will just make a marriage simulation game with Lightning so I can die happy.

Goto: I can never tell if you are serious when you say these things.

Toriyama: I am serious. In fact, I already have a few plans for this game. I doubt I will find a girl in real life who could match Lightning’s beauty and personality.

After assuring reporters that it was all a big joke, the Lightning Returns staff continued to answer questions until Toriyama started punching a reporter who jokingly said that he was going to marry Lightning first.

    Is this why she’s a freaking Mary Sue?

    • Alpaca says:

      Where the fuck are you getting Mary Sue from? The typical Mary Sue is a drama queen that always gets what she wants and has little flaws. I’m not getting that from Lightning at all.

        She has pink hair

        She has pink hair.

      • Bob says:

        It’s a Final Fantasy game. Hair color shouldn’t be the deciding factor on whether someone is a Sue or not.

      • Anthony says:

        A Mary Sue does not have to be a drama queen. What fanfics have you been reading?

        The definition of a Mary Sue is a character without any flaws, or, at most, inconsequential ones that are only meant to “endear” them further to the audience and don’t detract from them. They reflect the author’s ideals of physical and moral perfection. They succeed at everything they do, the majority of the plotlines revolve around them. They tend to overshadow all other characters, who are in awe of them anyway. In short, a Mary Sue is an author’s pet who does nothing wrong. “Drama” has nothing to do with it.

        Unusual name, tragic past (dead parents and the previous games), suffers little to no consequence of her own, easily murdering elite soldiers without breaking a sweat, evolved too God Status in Lightning Returns.

    • Ceres says:

      You must be mistaking Lightning with Serah.

    O so thats why he abandons almost every character for lightning!

    So, Jack, what does it feel like to have a huge influx of popularity recently? I remember when the comments section was a literal ghost town.

    you dont live her. she is fucking data. You love a sick idea of a person without character and wobblytits. you are a creep and there is no chance that anybody with just a nano-gram of self-respect would marry such person. *blergh*

    conclusion:this guy is a sick fuck which wants his gurl to be a pron star with wobblytits (because e is a man, this dumbass does not know that these two thinsg DON’T HAVE FRIGGING MUSCULAR SUPPORT AND WOBBLING HURTS LIKE SHIT)
    (also:age. but such ass-holes just run to the next “perfect” women they can prostrate before.)

    also.

    i want please big, strong throbbing dicks. small dicks are lame.(so no Japanese?)in the male characters-I am a woman, I need my perfect man…Any guy with penis under 18cm is worthless and imperfect. and he HAS to be throbbing. If he doenst, i have to correct that flaw. asap.

    (well, of course not. i would be the same ____*istic ecci-dipshit as this guy. Also i would be racist and support the dumb ideas that 1. Asian guys have small penises (cant conform that) and 2. women need big cock(which is in my opinion bullshit. Its the hot-to-use, not the how big. Also, volume is limited.)

    he wants to marry a fictional character and thinks a perfect woman need big wobbly tits? maybe this guy is a virgin and fuck only his hands or prostitutes(not that i would have a problem with that.With neither virginity, nor prostitutes,it just shows that this guy cannot grasp the concept of LOVE because CHARACTER.

    and not:ay, titties. marry me*yelp*

  7. Why aren’t there more fanfics on Toriyama and Lightning? At least Rule 34. Get on it, Internet. This is a goldmine.
