During last week’s Comic Con in New York, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII branded CG film Advent Children walked home with the award for Best Anime Feature at the event’s inaugural American Anime awards celebration. The best? Really?
“Thanks to the dedication of our loyal fans, Final Fantasy VII has come to enjoy 10 years of undying popularity,” said the film’s producer Shinji Hashimoto. “Final Fantasy VII<: Advent Children, a direct sequel in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series, brings the series into the next century with today’s state-of-the-art CG, and we’re sure fans enjoyed seeing old friends brought to new life on the screen.”
He added: “As creators, we are very proud of the finished product, and as developers, it is truly an honor to receive an award of this magnitude. We hope for your continued support as the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII delves deeper into this exciting world. Thank you.”
