I swear, I think Squeenix KNOWS it has a rabid fanbase of slashers and is just throwing this stuff out like candy.
*facepalm* I like Gackt. I like FF7. I do not like them TOGETHER, however. Somethings, especially given Gackt's completely inability to act, should not be put together. I mean, hell, I showed the opening sequence to a friend of mine who knows nothing about FF7, and she went, "Wow! That one guy looks like Gackt!" and it made me want to cry.
See, I like Crisis Core, I just write it off has having nothing at all to do with actual canon (Denial. Not just a river in Egypt). Because some of it makes no sense at all, and some things--like the idea that as you go up in Class in SOLDIER you get more mako--fandom does BETTER. In CC, you just get told, "Hey, you're Class 1st now. Go get your new uniform and come back here for your next mission." ...wtf.
