Background info (in case you don't know bout it): FFVII:AC is the long anticipated sequel to the RPG Final Fantasy VII. However, instead of a game, they decided to create a film taking place 2 years after the events of FFVII. I would go into the story, but i really can't be arsed right now. Here's the official site (with trailers and among other things): http://www.square-enix.co.jp/dvd/ff7ac/
Anyway, the main purpose for this thread is to say that the release date has finally been announced!! For people who haven't been following the film, the release date has been pushed back like 3 times (it was originally planned for Summer 2004). But now, the director (and character designer...if that matters) Tetsuya Nomura has stated that the film is around 95% complete now, so it's unlikely the release date will be changed now.
Anyway, the important stuff:
The Japanese release date is September 14th 2005 at ¥4800 (around $45). All i can say is at freakin' last.
