has translated some of the scan, as follows:
ââ‚¬¢ The silver-haired boy
ââ‚¬¢ Uses a boomerang
ââ‚¬¢ Hates Snow for getting his mother involved in the battle
ââ‚¬¢ New Monster, "Cie Corpse (Husk?)"
ââ‚¬¢ The eventual fate of a l'Cie
ââ‚¬¢ Vanille's weapon is a fishing rod
ââ‚¬¢ Lightning's great skill, "Air Blast"
ââ‚¬¢ A l'Cie becomes a Cie Corpse when there's an unclear objective and they exceed their time limit, or something like that.

It's not heavily detailed as to what abilities she'll have or what kind her weapon will use, but she'll be swinging it around during battles.
In a later post he clarifies some of this information:
I don't know if it's exactly a fishing rod or it's just the most accurate description, but apparently she attacks with a needle attached to a wire, so it's at least the easiest...
