The Compilation will be an Orphaned Series After This

That's not necessarily true. Depending on how well the remake of FFVII does, and the business decision behind it, that may lead them to doing more with the Compilation as is. Considering how much there's gonna be towards making the FFVII remake a multi-episode series, I definitely foresee Square going all out in extracting as much profit from FFVII before moving on.

Things have ceased with the Compilation in regards to Genesis because Square lost the rights to use Gackt's face. So yeah. Hopefully Square learned its lesson regarding modeling fictional characters after real life pop idols :mon:

This means Genesis can be exiled from canon. There should be much rejoicing here. I always hated him.

..That was beautiful, man.

But seriously speaking, Genesis was an interesting SOLDIER-esque foil for Sephiroth. Unlike Sephiroth, who received no redemption (thank god), Genesis was saved by his arch-rival, Zack. He regained his SOLDIER honor.

Genesis probably now spends his free time on Gaia farming apple trees while wearing shitty disguises.

I don't think he deserved redemption, especially when he didn't seek or earned it. Not to mention getting away with the same crimes Sephiroth did. So, no I am glad Genesis can no longer be used. I do think that Angeal could be used and he could be reimagined from being a rival experiment and just a normal human, who could rival Sephiroth.

I remain unconvinced that Genesis received any such redemption. He was never shown to be remorseful of a single foul act he committed.

Seemingly wanting to ride Minerva's lance now instead of the spine of that stupid book does nothing to convince me of his becoming a force for good.

Thanos did it first, Thanos did it better. :monster:

I mean his free time, sure. But running diabolical, world endangering schemes that require Weiss/Nero's particular skillset must keep him busy most of the time.

Okay, he... Regained his "SOLDIER Honor." Is that better? :mon:

Not necessarily quite so bold as "redemption" but.. Clearly Zack changed something about him.

But guess what? Just like Episode Noctis.. THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW! :desu:

Thanks, Square!

Yeah, but like many redemption stories in Naruto it comes off flat.

Square was able to buy Gackt's face once. They can afford to do it if they really want to.
But would they want to?

Gackt's not nearly as much of a draw or worth the effort as he was when it happened. So... I don't really think it'd be worth it.

It was a stupid idea before, anyways. They already used Gackt's likeness for Squall anyways, and they didn't have to pay shit. :mon:

He has quite the fanbase, and it's an easy way to keep things going. God knows they're considering crazier ideas such as FFX-3.
...FFX-3 or what I like to call, "How to Ruin One of the Best FF Continuities by Adding the Most Bizarre, Hamfisted Series of Post-Game Events for Seemingly no Reason That Everybody Hates." :mon:

Yeah, let's not talk about that.

If they actually did X-3, keep Nojima the hell away from it. He clearly doesn't want to be connected and will just troll whatever they give him.

I don't want a X-3, but if you do it, burn that book, kick Kojima, and just continue from X-2 in a different way.
