          I'm actually watching his post-game analysis/theory crafting right now. It'd be wild if Aerith after the final boss is actually Jenova using Aerith's visage taking full advantage that after putting his whole dick, heart and soul into saving her but failing, Cloud has lost his mind and is in 1000% copium mode.

            I doubt it, there'd be no point in establishing the rainbow-light timeline nonsense if it was straightforward as aerith is jenova. The ending definitely had an unsettling tone though especially in japanese, so I may be wrong.

              Well yes, the timeline shenanigans are still happening, in fact they are the key to victory. So Jenova would want to distract Cloud with his trauma by giving him rosey words of encouragement to focus on the meteor and stopping Sephiroth when what he should be focusing on is that chasm in the sky.

              I mean it is consistent with the OG. The lifestream sequence is more to do with the fact that Tifa was a people pleaser who chose her orbiters who all constantly bullied Cloud, but she does nothing about it cause she liked the attention.

                Eh I wouldn’t say that either. After all, she had actual brain damage from the bridge incident after her mum tragically died then subsequently, Sephiroth killed her dad. No wonder she’s all sorts of fricked in the head much like Cloud. They were never gonna work out as a couple.

                Her having faults makes her interesting. Cloud and her both are people with issues. The tension between them and their own misperceptions about the past are significantly more interesting as a dynamic than her just being a big tittied moron in love with with nothing else going on. She's growing more assertive and there's a tie in even before Remake (I forget the name of it) where she acknowledges she can be an attention prostitute.

                If those elements weren't there they wouldn't be interesting. They are both making some effort to work their problems out, them missteping along the way is the whole point of an arc. Neither tifa nor cloud are bad people and routinely put their lives on the line for others. Most of what they do is good, but the issues make them interesting, even if they can't be paired romantically. The way I see it the way forward for Tifa is to not get with him as a form of personal growth.

                I agree with this post. I hate Tifa with a passion, she is a horrible person, but the only reason I feel that way is because she is the best written and developed character in the game.

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                I would hesitate to describe any of them as horrible, she mostly does nothing but good things for people, and it makes more sense she and Cloud would be having this problem since they both have warped perceptions of the past. If anything that's how long term friends can be. We all know our friends' faults, but we still accept them. I don't think she ever does anything truly heinous, she's still very heroic and doing her best to help save the fricking world. She made her own friends after Cloud left, she helps take care of a kid that's not hers, she remains friends with her romantic rival when she can clearly tell things are growing between them and she never takes it out on her new BFF. She seems like a pretty brave decent person to me, but decent people can still have major flaws.

                There hasn't really been a Wakka moment where she's trying to talk about fireworks when someone just watched their entire home explode. Her mistakes are smaller and make more sense. I can't hate her at all, I think she's a good character.

                You can hate good characters. Though I do project Tifa's flaw into the real world. I see Tifa's all over place in reality, and they are woman that should be avoided at all costs. Its probably one of the reasons she is so popular.

            The whole cloud half remembers zack thing is another gigantic plot hole that makes tifa look like a moron because now we have cloud conceding that tifa’s memory of the soldier and sephiroth is correct, which leaves a helmeted unnamed grunt, so when there is one person unaccounted for and one person who remembers intimate details, clearly that shinra grunt is cloud, yet tifa doesn’t connect it.

              I think she just didn't want to press him. I also don't think she understands fully how much Sephiroth can manipulate him. From her perspective Cloud basically attacks her, and in Remake she explicitly states she's afraid of him after he threatens to kill Johnny, which was not Sephiroth talking, but Cloud 100%. So she has precedent that this guy she's known for a very long time can be unstable.

            This is why the interlocked handholding feels more intimate than the kiss. They actually give the scene time to breathe and let the camera linger on it multiple times. Why they didnt do this on Tifas date is a mystery.

              The kiss is the culmination, the capstone. The linger is on the open hand, Cloud's face of conviction with what he's what about to do, the surprise embrace.

            Cause it wasn't meant to be romantic. From the meta commentary that it's weird for them to be in the Gondola to Cloud going for a Zack move there with the rebound kiss after he basically says "Aerith probably still like her ex, huh? :("

            If anything, Tifa fans should feel bad for her with Cloud pulling such an assholish move.

                Clerith is pretty unpopular on social media. Like the ratio of dates in an official survey was only 19% for Aerith's date and 71% for tifa's.
                If they tried to push clerith on Twitter or Tumblr or whatever they'll get bullied to oblivion and laughed at. That's why they come here and samegay , that's their safe space.

                To be fair Aerith just has a lot less baggage in the arraignment than Tifa does. She wasn't there at Nibelheim and didn't have to see her parents murdered in front of her in an extremely confusing arrangement, Aerith has her own very serious issues but between the 3 of them she's the one that seems to know more of what is actually going on, and also has a clearer head about things. Tifa is growing substantially in her own way. It's not like she's trying to sabotage Cloud and Aerith, she's now close to both of them.

                Aerith is more popular in Japan than Tifa and those are the only people the creators actually care about. They do not care about anyone's opinion in the West at all and frankly their own opinions seem to change over time. OG7 ends with him possibly going all the way with her and saying he wants her to have him but then they wrote AC which means canonically he just straight reneges on that sentiment completely. That's pretty fricked from an in universe perspective, and is effectively Cloud holding her hostage. It might not have been their intent but that's how it comes across, and does she really deserve that? At worst she what? Helped him save the fricking world, helped in the lifestream, seemed like she got him, and then he does that? That's not her fault.
                And I see a lot of people justifying everything Cloud does under the context he's not well, but that only goes so far imo. She's clearly carrying a ton of baggage herself, some of the interpretations of her here seem decidedly unfair to her. The b***h has issues, but both of them still care for each other in a real, deep way. Just because it probably won't work out doesn't mean she's a bad person.

                That's blatantly false. FF has been focusing on worldwide audience for a good while now. FF16 literally has nothing about it that panders to Japan over the west and FF7 went with cinematic action route over the turn based. That's one of the reasons why rebirth ended up doing badly in Japan.

                He never did though as AC existed. Even after Aerith reassured him that "it's okay", he never became "okay" as we've seen in Dirge.

                Cloud would never be "okay" after all the people he's lost. He's like Kenny from the Telltale TWD games. Not even his childhood crush can bring him back from the verge of suicide.

                Cloud appears to get jealous whenever she starts doing anything other than show interest in him, so if she's at fault for trying to get with him he's just as much at fault for trying to play her at the same time he pursues Aerith. It's not like she has no absence of trauma herself, she isn't just trying to win him over because. They have a lot of shared history, they're clearly very important to each other despite the mistakes they make regarding each other.

                You can see it on her face after he brought up the Zack/Aerith stuff but she folds regardless cause she would deffo not turn down a kiss from a Zack-type Cloud is pretending to be on their "date".

                Aerith's date on the other hand (holding) was the much more romantic one cause Cloud "revealed" himself to Aerith after she said she's trying so hard to find the real him. For a moment there, you can see the Crisis Core version of the real, shy/awkward Cloud which is so blatant.

        Why would he ? He doesn't love her that way. Like no matter the gaslighting, there's only one thing for sure. No quote can be found that describes cloud relationship with Aerith as love like the quotes with tifa that aren't subtle about what kind of feelings they have for each other.

        That's tifa thoughts because she was in doubt but it all gets confirmed that cloud viewd them as Family and her as his love

      Two galaxies that that you're looking at during the edge of creation scene and there's the one that that we're looking towards which is your world and then there's the one behind it and that they refer to it as the universe of Destruction and the universe of creation or the life and death right now weirdly Cloud's universe is the one that's referred to as the universe of destruction and the other one is considered the universe of life the one that will become a part of it someday so another detail to this is the pause menu in rebirth takes you to the Temple of the Ancients right so you are in the temple of the Ancients regardless of where you are what is the Temple of the Ancients the Temple of the Ancients isn't where the black material is the Temple of the Ancients is the black Materia yeah so it's almost as if they're in the black Materia because I think a lot of times we hear the life stream and we think oh is the life stream the afterlife not really that's not what the life stream is the life stream is not you know the afterlife the life stream is the functional mechanic that drives the entire universe system forward and there are more than one there are like actually Four named life streams there's the stagnant life stream there's the negative life stream and you could argue that those are both the same thing it's probably that they just didn't think about it real hard and then there's a universal life stream so it's like there's all these life streams so it's possible that what the black materia is because if you look at the walls of the black materia and if you read like say the ultimania descriptions of why the walls in the temple of the Ancients look the way they do it's because they are a time capsule right so the timekeeper there and then they have pictures of all the different phases of the cetra history so it's like a time capsule so it's as if the black Materia is making a backup copy of a universe

    Zack is a living wound in the Lifestream that only serves to sever and create offshoot worlds with his choices.
    However, Sephiroth seeks convergence, so as long as Zack persists with his indomitable will, Sephiroth will never have instrumentality.

          Aerith and Tifa canonically go on a date.
          By shipgay standards, this means they're soulmate scissorsisters and is proof that NPTK was about Tifa and Aerith the entire time.
          Real talk though. They'd be better for each other than Cloud would be for either one of them.

              There was an interview not too long ago from Nojima where he said he aimed to intensify the friendship between the two girls since the original didn't showcase it as well. I agree it's been pretty well done this time. They're both characters with rough backstories and lonely so it makes sense they'd get along fast.

                this, he tells a story about a senior programmer on FF7 back in the day commenting to him that it seemed that Aerith and TIfa did not like each other very much, and he realized that narrative choices in FF7 led to that impression, which was not intentional. So he took extra care in Rebirth to show their friendship.

        She’s in love with Zack and to some capacity, Zack has feelings for her as well as per the DMWs.

        Never forget that Zack has always put Shinra first due to his daddy issues with Angeal instead of Aerith so he sees Cissnei much more in his day-to-days, hence why it ain’t the point that he was locked up with Cloud for 5 years, it’s the fact that he never really devoted himself to Aerith like Cloud does in the first place.

        He finally realises this in Rebirth and it’s the reason why he chose to help Cloud.

        Doesn’t make him a cuck but instead more like him righting his wrongs.

    Imagine being Cloud in that scene and having to be all like "damn, Tifa Lockhart, you frickin' fine, all sexy with your tight body and horrific Square Enix monster face. I would totally have sex with you, both my Zack-copy SOLDIER self and the real me." when all he really wants to do is frick another flower girl in his dressing room. Like seriously imagine having to be Cloud and not only stand on that balcony while Tifa Lockhart flaunts her disgusting body in front of you, the favorable lighting barely concealing her ugly scar and uncanny valley skin, and just stand there, mako flashback after flashback, hour after hour, while she perfected that shirt lift. Not only having to tolerate her monstrous fricking visage but her "please like me" attitude as everyone on in the party tells her she's STILL GOT IT and DAMN, TIFA LOCKHART LOOKS LIKE THAT?? because they're not the ones who have to stand there and listen to her PTSD-laden whining and stare at her horrible scar tissue that you didn't know existed before that day.

    Took me almost two hours to beat that shinra middle-manager c**t in 3D Brawler. Horrible minigame and a fricking annoying character.
    Why does this game do this thing where there's all these annoying as frick characters that never get what they deserve? It happens so often it becomes predictable and extremely infuriating. And the party always goes "haha look at em go what a goofy character lmao".

    The symbolism of aerith being saved and then dying with the nearly 10 minutes of baiting and switching is symbolic that aerith is both alive and dead, because cloud is in limbo he can see her in another time but the others cannot. She’s alive and dead at all times

      >Does this prove nomura is better than yoship?

      Are you seriously asking that? Nomura is the best director in the business next to Kojima. I have no idea what YoshiP did aside from 16 but it was the most flaccid, uninspired "Baby's First D&D campaign" shit I've ever seen. Everything about it felt phoned in and devoid of any passion or inspiration. Meanwhile segments of Rebirth like Tifa's visions of the lifestream in Gongaga or the trials in the Temple of the Ancients where each party member has to face their greatest trauma are some of the best shit I've ever seen in a video game, direction wise.

        FF16 is garbage and Rebirth is fricking incredible, but you thought the "walk forward and press the haptic feedback triggers" segments were some of the best things you've seen in vidya? Is this the only game you've ever played?

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          I said direction wise. I mean, yeah, I also find the combat in Rebirth a whole lot more engaging than in 16, and unlike 16 it actually has gameplay mechanics other than combat, but I was talking purely in directorial terms. The only thing halfway interestingly presented in 16 was that one part where Clive unlocked his Devil Trigger.

              This is what the devs meant when they said there will be “equal screentime” between Aerith and Tifa kek. Based in this claim, Aeriths role will be equal to Tifa in Part 3. Additionally since they are blatantly copying moments from each pairing and just model swapping Aerith and Tifa, I expect more copied moments in Part 3. Aerith kiss (thats more intimate than Tifas) is imminent

    The main issue is what universe of plain of existence the fight with Sephirot happened, since its the place where Cloud meets both Zack and Aerith? 3rd game will have them appear once more, probably even together. But how they'll interact Cloud depends on the answer of my question. But during the overall plot development, Cloud will be the only party member able to see Aerith like at the end of Rebirth, causing more confusion as Sephirot and Aerith blends in his mind (thats why Sephirot gives him that smug face when he retreats at the end, he will use Aerith to mindfrick Cloud even more). Im sure the rest of the party will end up fighting Cloud at some point. I was bummed with the Advent Children confirmation, but after actually reading the subtitles of the interview, its more vague, so I think its still up in the air. Still, we know Aerith and Zack are together in AC, lifestream is basically heaven so theres a happy ending for them, the whole "cant leave in the past, gotta move on" motto is about letting her go as she becomes a "goddess" in the lifestream, helping the party from the inside.

    Also, who cares if Crisis Core already had the title, third part is being called Reunion. After that they'll put the 3 games in a single package simply called Remake.

      Cloud's final fight with Sephiroth is physical, and occurs at the Edge of Creation. It's not a metaphor for his mental struggle, it actually happens. Evidence:

      1) After the party defeats Jenova Lifeclinger, the rainbow effect engulfs them
      2) When next we return to the party (right before they fight Bizarro Sephiroth), they're all talking about how Cloud has physically disappeared and are looking around for him
      3) Cloud is physically present during Zack's "together as one" Synergy Ability
      4) After they beat Sephiroth, Aerith asks him "Ready? Everyone's waiting." We next see him returned to the party.

      It's possible that Bizarro Sephiroth was Cloud's last physical fight at the Edge of Creation and he just sat there afterwards being schizo until Aerith returned him, but there's no evidence for this. When Cloud goes schizo, the screen flashes with static and that never happens during the EoC fights. Conversely, the multiversal rainbow effect clearly appears when Aerith joins him.

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Yes, the final fight is real, thats why Im saying Sephirot smugs, he will use Aerith for the mental games. The question about the physicality of Aerith and Zack has to do with, since we WILL play with both of them sooner or later, Cloud will need to reach the Edge (or some oniric world like in the date) to meet them. Maybe that happens till the end, maybe that will be the time where Cloud isnt in the party while the rest of the gang (with Cid and Vincent finally in) does the heavy lifting, and Cloud makes his heroic return in the end.

        Been thinking about Loveless. The directors have repeatedly emphasized its importance to the plot. The parallels are clear on a rewatch, and may point to the conclusion of the series.

        The end credits show Loveless with Aerith Rosa, which is consistent with Cait Sith's prediction in Act II. Then during Act III, Cloud Alphreid blocks the villain's ultimate attack against Aerith Rosa, she then summons Phoenix, the symbol of Rebirth. Clear parallel with the ToTA scene. "Proof that true love indeed conquers all, is it not?"

        But the real meat is the parallel between the endings of Loveless and the game itself. Rosa asks Alphreid "must you go?" and Alphreid responds that "those he holds dear" are waiting for him. Rosa is distressed by this but wishes for his safety (parallel to Aerith's prayer this game); it's implicit that she cannot accompany him further.

        I think this is the context of Aerith's "Sayonara" at endgame. She must either be in the Cetran place of power, or within the Lifestream, in order to properly direct Holy, and dislikes being separated from Cloud. Regardless of whether she lives or dies, her time with the party is at an end, so it's a sad farewell.

        Returning to Loveless, Alphreid finishes by saying "you needn't promise to wait, because I know I will find you here" and we go into NPTK.

        This blatantly foreshadows the canon final scene of FF7, where cloud "thinks he can meet with her... there." Maybe they'll change the line so that Cloud says "I know I can meet with her there" instead, but I doubt we're getting any other major changes. They will increase Aerith's role in Part III compared to canon just as they did for Tifa in Part II but the conclusion will remain broadly similar. I hope I'm wrong about this, as an ambiguous end like this would be extremely unsatisfying after three games of build up.

        I made this post yesterday. Weird, but kinda happy, to see it being reposted word for word...

            Yeah, it's obvious from the end credits that Aerith is the intended Rosa. Loveless predicts the ending sequence extremely well:
            1) Cloud blocks the villain's attack on Aerith
            2) Aerith summons the symbol of Rebirth
            3) The villain is defeated, goes into a one-leg kneel, and begins a salty rant about how the hero is just a puppet (!!)
            4) Aerith is sad that despite their victory, they must still be separated
            5) Cloud responds with "you needn't promise you'll wait, for I know I will find you here"; this goes directly into NPTK

            Right now I'm trying to figure out the context of Cloud's dialogue lines during the Jenova Lifeclinger fight. He tells himself "you've done this before," so Cloud at this point has some future memories. You can draw a line to his final words to Aerith before the fight in the JP dub, "wait for me" - something that future Cloud would more likely say. But he clearly isn't this coherent at the end of the game, being so oblivious to the rest of the party's sorrow. Did we get bait and switched with the Clouds at EoC? This is the one major plot element I can't reconcile.

      Basically, the man is saying that while it's possible Clerith could be happier, he'd probably write a post FFVII Clerith to be just as miserable as post FFVII Cloti.

          Look at the few relationships he has written that "Work"
          All between teenagers.

          My Nojima head canon is that the only time he ever experienced love was in high school and then never again, which is why he's so bitter on adult relationships.
          Because even when the man writes relationships between adults, it's either some dead, lifeless affair between "Old people" or 20 somethings who act like they're still teenagers.

    The Dyne scene was fine. I don't know why people complain. The only problem I had with it is that Barret's VA is so much better than Dyne's shitty English anime dub voice actor doing his 'I'm so evil and crazy' shtick.

    Also, I haven't gotten much further than this point yet, but Cloud comforting better and the "I mean it, man" was the best moment of the game so far.

      She is, but part of that is Aerith is frankly too preoccupied and burdened to let her own faults show up at the time the game goes on. She knows she's going to probably die soon. She probably has all sorts of little issues with her from her own baggage. Also it is what it is, Cloud lucked out. Tifa is no worse of a person than Cloud to me, so if she got her own new romance where she isn't tied to Cloud that would probably do her a world of good.
