Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children musings

It’s ridiculously early and I’m back into the habit of putting off sleep again, for some unknown reason, so I thought I’d share a little of my ramblings.

Anyone who knows me knows I’m pretty into Final Fantasy 7, and being a student whose studies are part of the core of English Literature/Language, it’s natural for me to read into things and analyse them.

But here’s my thought process on a scene or two from the Final Fantasy 7: Advent children movie. Take it all with a pinch of salt, if you’re familiar with it; these are just my opinions. I really enjoy reading into the meaning and purpose behind FF7 and certain other games, just because they’re such a culturally rich and diverse text. It’s a little nerdy to say, but they’ve molded me as a person and helped me define some of my own values.

So, yes, if you’re into Japanese RPG’s, please do take a look.


Serious level of want.

I’m a bit of a Final Fantasy nerd, I must confess. I’ve played some of the early games but I love Final Fantasy 7 and 8. I think the storylines are brilliant. Final Fantasy 9 was a tad disappointing and 10 was mostly just pretty to look at – although if you take a closer look at it, the protagonist’s character development throughout the game was incredibly well done – but mostly I am a 7/8 girl.

Guess what I just found on eBay. Cloud’s Buster Sword A work of art.

I would love to have a collectible like this, although at $650, it’s, erm, not gonna happen unless I by some fantastic stroke of luck win the lottery or a leprechaun visits me with a pot of £50 notes.

Of course, it’s not just the whole finance issue that puts me off getting this. It’s also the fact that I would probably try and pretend to be Mr Strife and end up severing several of my own limbs. Coordinated, I am not.

But, hey, if you’ve got $650 to spare (free shipping!), have a gander.
