    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is how some think. I've seen this kind of mindset in other fandoms too. ATLA has a sizable fandom that ships Zuko and Katara together and they regularly rant that their ship would totally have happened in the cartoon except that the writers wanted Katara to be...

    I found this bit funny too, as it came across to me as Elmyra giving off big mother-in-law energy.

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    I'm pretty sure that they're not all unaware. However, their priority is on Cloud loving Aerith, no matter what. I find myself wondering if that might be why some extreme Cleriths don't care that they headcanon Cloud as the worst liar, deadbeat, and cheater, as long as they can claim Cloud loves...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    There was a hilarious moment in that same debate thread where someone asserted the 'neutral' position that Cloud loves both women equally. Then added that since Aerith died halfway through the game, Cloud has less interactions with her compared to Tifa. And for him to love both equally means...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    Yeah. That's something a lot of early Clerith arguments essentially went: To determine whether Cloud loves Aerith we must first assume that he loves Aerith, so everything Cloud does is because he loves Aerith, and this is irrefutable proof that he loves Aerith.

    It was the list they made up of Cloud's in-game behaviour towards the women with points assigned to each so that once all the scores were tallied up, there'd be quantitative proof of who he likes/loves more. Like, when Cloud greets the woman it's worth 1 point each time; when he mentions her...

    Oh, I just had flashbacks to the many debates where responses were essentially copy/pasted whole passages from that bible, or from clerith.com. At the very least, I'm relieved that their affection scoresheet doesn't seem to be in use anymore.

    I've been going on another stroll through the Eurythmics' discography, and was reminded yet again of one of my favourite songs, "Don't Ask Me Why":

    I was a little surprised too when I came across some FF blogs several years back and found some Cloud fans who were annoyed with how much had been attributed to Zack in CC. They did acknowledge that Cloud was copying Zack in the OG, but with the way CC and Zack had been written, they felt like...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    At the time, Cloud and Aerith were seen to have a lot of typical romantic tropes. The tough, cold merc and the gentle, playful woman who opens his heart. His fall through the church roof was a dramatic way to set up the possible start of a relationship. The US ad with the "love that can never...

    Is this the same guy who did the reaction to Tifa's resolution in Remake?

    https://deadline.com/2024/02/mcdonalds-plans-anime-version-of-restaurant-in-l-a-1235836612/ Seems like a limited time only stunt. McDonald's is even partnering with Studio Pierrot to produce some anime shorts.

    Interesting. The French subs are faithful to the Japanese script.

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    Reminds of back in the early 2000s when the trailer for Advent Children had come out. There was a thread about in on IGN, where someone was boldly claiming that, based on the shot of Cloud and Aerith standing back to back in the trailer, AC was going to have Cloud resurrecting her, whereupon she...

    It probably is like that. Even AC Cloud the sad loner who isolates himself from his friends was specifically depicted as such by SE because of the popular fandom image of him post-OG. The difference being that fans imagined him being alone because he was pining for his dead love Aerith; whereas...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    From what I remember, after FF7 first released Clerith was the major ship and pretty much dominated in any discussions online. Cloti was relatively quiet. I know that whenever I discussed Cloti as a ship back then, a lot of people would come in to shoot it down citing "Tifa bullied him" and "I...

    FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH ANNOUNCED

    I got my copy of Rebirth on Saturday. One thing about having an open world in a game is that I'm driven to clear up the map and sidequests as much as possible before moving on... which means that Chapter 2 is taking a long, long time. I'd been playing it almost the entire weekend, but finally...
