The less said about the game the better, as far as I'm concerned - let's call it "underwhelming" and leave it at that. Not been following the manga for quite a while because my attention span with ongoing things is just awful. The novel was pretty much the worst thing I've ever read (did anyone like it? At all?) but it made the movie even more enjoyable, which is really its only saving grace. I'm honestly not sure why Otsuka was hired to write this, because traditional FF is so painfully obviously not within his ability or interests. Would've preferred the ZN writer again or Shibata. At least they have no woefully out of place crossover characters to give the entire story to. It just feels like such a waste of the first novel we've had in over a decade and I can't forgive that. We can always reread ZN, I guess!
The movie, on the other hand, was above and beyond all expectations, on pretty much genius level. Almost nothing I'd change about it and, while it has pretty much nothing at all to do with FF, it still manages to turn Otsuka's trainwreck into something kind of recognisable and even with some game nods, plus it's a really quite good movie in its own right as long as you don't expect to really be scared, which is far more than most game adaptations can say. Still have no hope for any potential Hollywood one, though. The bar is too high after Asato (bless her name and the ground she walks on). Unless they cast Sean Bean.
Another media mix in the future? Not for me. Lots of hype for lots of disappointment with one (terribly underrated) light at the end of the tunnel so far (maybe I'll finally read the manga when it finishes, whenever that is). The movie was worth it, though. Just about.
