Wait a second. Final Fantasy XIII isn't the most panned title, and Nomura wasn't directing that game at any point. Heck, not only it is a Toriyama-directed game, but Nomura only designed the main characters; there was a different art director altogether for everything else.

EDIT: Nomura got also kicked out of FFXV (or Versus), and SE continues to overcharge him with work to do on other games. How is the dude to blame?

Bad character designs are the fault of Nomura. I never said he directed XIII.
