Zerith is canon.

by August 19, 2011 0 comments

That’s right.

The proof is in the wedding of Maaya Sakamoto and Kenichi Suzumura, the voice actors of Aerith and Zack in Advent Children, respectively.

Oh, the couple’s worked together on numerous other titles as VA’s too (Gundam SEED Destiny, Ouran, Kara no Kyōkai, Black Butler II, etc). But that’s not relevant,

    … Almost had a heart attack when I read this.

    Very glad it’s not as literal as the title made it seem.

    Not that I care who the Hell Aerith (or Tifa) is with (they can both have Cloud, for all I care), but just please leave Zack out of it. He’s too great of a character. Besides, Aerith seems to have made her choice for Cloud, too.

      If you don’t care, why did you “almost [have] a heart attack”?

      That’s right, it was.

      But then Zack died and Aerith hit on Cloud in a rather similar fashion.

      And then Aerith died.

      And then the FFVII fandom and the internets met.

    OMG! That so makes Zerith Canon!!

    But wait…Cloud and Tifa’s VA haven’t married yet… I hope it’s just a matter of time but what if they don’t?! *Panics*…ok, ok, that doesn’t make Cloti any less canon, right?! Sakurai Takahiro and Ito Ayumi will eventually get married…not like it makes Cloti any less canon if they don’t…

    To the people on a certain forum reading this and bashing TLS thinking that TLS HONESTLY posted this as real Zerith evidence, stop it. Saying Zerith is canon was meant to be a joke and I honestly can’t believe someone would think otherwise.

    i don’t get it. Zerith is already a canon, isn’t it? then why keep saying no it is not? even most of Clotis i’ve read on internet have said Cloud had some affection for Aerith then can’t those Cleriths just say yeah Zerith WAS a canon but now it’s Clerith? (for example)

    Wow you guys will do ANYTHING to play down Cloud and Aerith. First the “Priest is about Cloti” article and now you’re doing this too? Do you guys ever post any actual news anymore or is it just LTD stuff?

    oh and Cloti isn’t canon, Square never said that. Might want to, you know, take dow that article that said they did when they said no such thing.

      Oh get over yourself. This IS news, but it’s written as a joke too. There have been a few articles since the Priest article in May, and they were “news” too. Try actually reading the article before you dismiss it, but if you’re going to be such a bad sport about it you can always F*** off instead.

      P.S. I’m happy for Maaya and Kenichi and wish them luck for the future.

      Since when was the Priest article about “CloTi”?

      And how does this article “downplay” C/A? (ignoring the fact that there would first have to be something to downplay it)

      And if that one article did not say C/T are canon then what did it say? I would love to hear the reasoning you have.

    The Priest article had a picture of a fake Tifa and Cloud kissing and said, “This is what this entire movie is about.” how is that not saying it’s about Cloti?

    This article downplays CxA because it says Zerith is canon, and it’s not. Zerith is in the past. It’s over and Clotis don’t get it. Aerith broke up with Zack in Crisis Core, maybe try playing it?

    And that article DID say CxT is canon. That’s the problem. The actual page is talking about romantic love between characters, and they show BOTH Cloud and Tifa and Cloud and Aerith. yet this site ignored the Cloud and Aerith picture. I’ve had to tell so many of my friends that Cloti is not canon and they all began boycotting this site because it’s nothing but a bunch of bias Cloti lies.

    If you want to see some essays that have actual facts in them try I’d like to see you read that and still think Cloti is canon.

      “”. . . sure, because THAT couldn’t possibly be biased.

      Let me take a wild guess. . . “Cloud’s feeling for Tifa were a childhood crush, he’s long over her.” “Tifa is a pushy man-stealer that forced Cloud to make the promise to come save her, and Cloud agreed if only so she would shut up about it.” “If the Promise had meant so much to him, he wouldn’t have forgotten it.” “Aerith is the white mage to Cloud’s warrior class.” “Aerith got Cloud to smile.”

      Yeah, I’ve done my homework. I know the CloudxAerith arguments and I’m not buying it. I don’t feel like listing them all here, but throw them at me and I’ll knock them right back. I’ll start with what I listed, just for good measure: Cloud was the one who invited Tifa out to the well, he wanted to join SOLDIER to impress HER.

      That promise was more than he could have hoped for.
      He forgot because he was basically brain-damaged, you don’t get to choose what you forget and what you don’t, he forgot Zack too, remember? (heh.)

      Aerith is his white mage? Okay, FFVIII did that, so did FFIX, and FFX; ignoring that they all came after VII, god forbid Square did something DIFFERENT. Different is good, at least until it becomes FFXIV.

      Aerith got Cloud to smile at least twice. Once when he was having a chuckle at her expense, and once when he had all of his burdens lifted from his shoulders. Yeah, he’s head over heels for sure.

      Maria 7 September, 2011, 05:25

      Just because Zerith is in the past that doesn’t make it non-canon, and technically Aerith never broke up with Zack.

    • Quexinos
      Quexinos 7 September, 2011, 07:33

      she didn’t? She wrote him a break up letter O_o

      and uh.. yeah… not good to say “This site is bias but this one isn’t.” That’s just a little silly

    • Quexinos
      Quexinos 8 September, 2011, 04:15

      It was in crisis core, didn’t she send him one, or did I imagine that?

      He just never got it.

    • SuperAnonymous777
      SuperAnonymous777 8 September, 2011, 10:48

      I don’t remember something about a break up in Aerith’s last letter, just that she was asking Zack how he was doing, telling him about how the flowers are selling well, and that she has already written 89 letters and that one was to be the last. I dunno. It just doesn’t really strike me as a break up letter. But meh… not that I are. 😀

    • Maria
      Maria 8 September, 2011, 23:40

      Yea, the only letter sent from Aerith that the player got to read was the 89th letter(the last one), to Zack.
      Her letter:
      “How are you?
      I wish I knew where you were.
      It’s already been 4 years now.
      This is the 89th letter I’ve sent to you, but I don’t even know where to send them anymore.
      I really hope that this final letter I am writing gets to you.
      By the way, the flowers are selling very well.
      They make everyone so happy-thanks to you Zack!”

      From what I’ve read there’s nothing there that mentions her breaking up with him. O.o

    • Quexinos
      Quexinos 10 September, 2011, 10:13

      Well i guess I took “This is the last letter I’m writing you” as a sorta break up letter. Guess it was just me

      Vendel 7 September, 2011, 06:18

      One wonders why some C/A shippers are so offended by this article? Could it be because if Cloud and Aerith’s voice actors had gotten married they would be seriously touting it as “Clerith” proof? Or that they have many more claims that are just as ridiculous?

      And I always ask this but I never seem to get a response. What exactly did that page about displays of romantic love say about Aerith?

      And I wont go so far as to say you haven’t read the Priest article (though I have my suspicions). But you have clearly not comprehended it.

    • SuperAnonymous777
      SuperAnonymous777 8 September, 2011, 10:39

      LOL @ citing a forum that is dedicated to the ship and claim it to be factually correct and more objective than a scan of an official book. So funneh.

      And that article did say CxT is canon because it IS canon. That’s your problem. And please stop clinging to a single picture and learn to read the text. No one ignored the CxA pic in that scan, it just so happens it doesn’t mean any shit. Why? The proof is in the label. Again, learn to read (but then you claim the Priest article was supposed to prove Cloti so I doubt if you even know how or maybe you just have low comprehension skills). Aerith is nowhere mentioned in that single page… NOWHERE. And if you even push the “CxA pic argument” just to prove your fanon ship is in equal weight against the canon C/T, then I say take a look at Terra’s picture. Yeah, with your logic, Terra is a whore. Selective reading, do not do it. :-/

    Way to display your ignorance. You didn’t read the Priest article; For your information, that picture of the couple kissing surfaced back before Advent Children came out and people came up with rumors that the people in the picture were Tifa and POSSIBLY Cloud or a new character altogether.

    The rest of the Priest article is about how the movie seems to pay homage to Final Fantasy VII, as well as other scifi and fantasy movies such as Blade Runner and Aliens. Also the characters are never said to actually BE Cloud and Tifa, merely inspired somewhat by them. But you are drawing the wrong conclusions from what you skimmed from the article because there is no ‘Aerith-Character’ in the movie too.

    I don’t think it’s so much that she was dumping him. It came off more like, “If I ever see you again, I’ll be happy to see you; but in the meantime, It’s time for me to move on.”

    Saying this is super!real!Zerith is like saying Summer and Winter in FFX-2 is a homage to Clerith. You know… it’s funny. And a joke.
