You know...

I know my mother likes anime, but... I hadn't actually expected her to become a FullMetal Alchemist fangirl!

Have to buy disc 4 next week.

Speaking of anime... well... Japanese animation... I finally got a chance to sit down and watch Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children the other night...

...oh dear...

So much potential, and that was all they could come up with?

...although Tifa was hawt...

Well, I found it enjoyable, but it was a little too short, with not enough plot to get my teeth into. Plus, the fight scene at the end went on a little too long - to about the point where you were sat there thinking "okay, this is getting boring now, when does it end?" Although... a few minutes after thinking that, it ended. o.O

But yes, Tifa was pretty damn hot. ;)

Loz was cute. It's nice to see a male character cry. At least, a male character I LIKE anyway...

My greivances precisely... that and all the main game characters save for Cloud and Tifa seemed tacked on just for the sake of it...

Bearing in mind the first time I completed the game I got there without Tifa in the final party, and Yuffie and Red XIII supporting Cloud, you can guess that I preferred some of the "also-rans" to the main cast!

Another niggle!

Oh gods yeah. I mean... the point of having XIII in the opening was...? I was looking forwards to seeing him more, and yet... nothing.

Vincent did his usual tack of looking mysterious and doing very little... And Yuffie wasn't in it nearly enough. She's abnormally cute, so... I was hoping for a little of her personality to come through. Alas...

...Cait Sith's accent scared me.

I liked Aeris in this though. Possibly because she was useful in her own way. Which is more than can be said for the game... eheh.

I should point out here that I haven't actually been able to get the game yet, since I want it for PC and the ONE time I found it, I didn't have a PC that could run it. ...I should have bought it, that PC displayed abnormal skills with running games that shouldn't have run in a million years. But... I am still an FFVII fangirl. I know basically the entire way around the game, the major plotpoints and gods know what else, and have seen most of it in action... It's creepy though, I was able to explain everything in the movie to mum, yet all the reviews said "this won't make sense unless you play the game" and... I've played a demo, and yet it all made sense.

That's about the time I realised my fangirlism.

And I find that I no longer understand the fangirl hype about Vincent. He's a vampire... with black hair and a claw... oooookay. He's also a miserable git! Give me Yuffie any day... ^_^;

...I'm rambling, aren't I?

I wouldn't worry about rambling! Trust me, I can talk Final Fantasy all damn day!...

...and the reason for having Red XIII at the beginning in the "500 years later" capacity, is that it is the final scene in the closing credits of the game itself...

Regarding having Yuffie... well... she's nice and all, but she never really proved herself to me in the context of the game, save from having the highest evasion rate of amy of the characters, which was GREATLY handy in avoiding evil spells from final boss-type baddies... (not too many spoilers there I hope!)

BTW, if you're interested, I can lend you FFVII for Playstation, and more importantly the Playstation to play it on... I've got a shaky old one that, while still working, is a little quirky, so I don't use it as much as I might...
