|Final Fantasy Unlimited Summary:
have played the game Final Fantasy, right? If the answer
is yes, you are among the thousands who have. Final
Fantasy is a game loved by millions of fans around the
world. Now that you have played the games, you might
want to see the game outside of the playable universe.
There have been two attempts at bringing Final Fantasy
out of the gaming environment and these two have been
some pretty lame shots. Final Fantasy: The Legend of
the Crystals was a sick excuse for retelling the story
of Final Fantasy V with the decedents of the game. And
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within was centered way too
much on making the 3-D realm look like the real world.
But when is this going to turn around? When will Final
Fantasy finally be anew? Well, Squaresoft has done it
again, and they created a new anime series called Final
Fantasy Unlimited that was released October of 2001.
Since then, the 25 episode series has undergone fan
subbing by Soldats.
The series begins when the pillar of darkness blasts
from the sky and two giant demon/dragon-like creatures
come from it and end up shooting each other to oblivion.
A couple is standing there, watching it happen and records
thing. Now, lets go ahead to the future. Now Hayakawa
Joe & Marie have gone to
the inner world and they havent returned. Their
son and daughter, Yu and Ai have gone to the inner world
on a demon subway and meet up with a few unique characters.
Kaze is a mysterious traveler that has a demon gun strapped
arm that can basically take down any creature. And Lisa
is also a mysterious
babe that just shows up on the subway and has taken
Yu and Ai underneath her
wing as they search for their parents.
The siblings and Lisa travel all around this inner world
and come across some pretty weird places like an entire
town made out of fruits and inhabited by
funky looking men in cloaks that strangely resemble
Jawas. The series often gets
very repetitive with the same scenes being played over
and over again.
It has the repetitive factor that most anime has. And
the story mostly revolves around Kaze coming and saving
Yu and Ais butts by blowing this creature up who
looks like melted chocolate and always is blowing his
pipe like a whistle. If you think this is weird, you
are surely right! But, man, this series kicks some serious
ass once you get past all of those repetitive antics.
There is a blend of 2-D and 3-D in the movie, but not
enough to make that annoying. I actually thought the
blend was just enough to fit the series. Also, gamers
will like the ties to the game. After a battle is one,
the music for the finished battle comes over just like
it does in the games. The ending theme song will leave
you tapping your toes and humming too.
The story is compelling and I found myself whining because
I couldnt wait until
I watched the next episode. The series is great and
great for all ages. It has
the adventure for young kids and it has the action for
older people. This is a
must get for all Final Fantasy fans and for all anime

|I find FFu to be a very entertaining anime series. It is the first anime i have actually followed, but i do believe it is a great series to follow. Also, i wouldnt mind seeing it made into some kind of game. Anyone here agree? Why not, the magun would be fun to use.|

|I have to say I luv FFU and it has a good story. Don't mind the simple characters and Makenshin is so cool. Sigh wish that they had more budget to finish the rest of the series cause man it leaves so much still unanswered.|
