This is an interesting development...  
So, I was replaying Final Fantasy 7... I'd just gotten to Kalm and went to check out the weapons shop. And, much to my surprise, the new weapon for Aeris (or Aerith, if you're a KH fan) was the Full Metal Staff.

Unlike her usual quarterstaff, this one has a blade at one end. As near as I can tell it's pretty close to Ed's weapon. Do you think Arakawa Hiromu's a FFVII fan? ^_^ (As a side note, Mangaka Matsushita Yoko is a FFVII fan... Nearly the entire crew of the game shows up in the background of a panel of the Yami no Matsuei manga)

I love that bit in YnM! Wasn't it in volume five? V5 was perfect for the inclusion of FFVII charas as well as the heavy TatTsu element. Mm. TatTsu. My favorite YnM pairing. ^_^

But I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Arakawa Hiromu was a fan of FFVII... It's an amazingly popular game, more so in Japan than in America. A reference to it wouldn't be shocking and FMA *is* owned by Square so copyright issues wouldn't be as much an issue. But most likely it's just coincidence.

*adores the TatTsu* The odd chibi-Cloud-tachi! *adores.

I've got to go find my YnM manga again. Volume five? BEAUTIFUL.

"Full metal" seems to be a favorite word for "steel" or "iron" with anime, games, and manga. I think there's also a full metal item in Legend of Mana, and it pops up in other places, so I think it's safe to assume it means steel. Or iron. I never can really figure it out. T_T But it does indicate some durable, heavy metal, and I think it fits in both places.

...Mitsushita Yoko sure IS a FFVII fan...hari sen-bon...

*blinku* Ah, now I remember! The Full Metal Staff!

T___T Too bad Aeris died... But at least I made sure she got all her limit breaks before she left the party! ^^;;
