Along with Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Final Fantasy VII: Last Order was created as a bonus feature in the
Japanese Limited Edition set. Last Order is a short anime film created for fans of the beloved game to demonstrate
the events at Nibelheim in a more clear perspective. Last Order brings to Final Fantasy VII fans a vivid description
of the occurrences at Nibelheim from a different angle, which was Square-Enix’s intent.
Final Fantasy VII: Last Order took place in two different time periods, one five years ago before the events of
Final Fantasy VII and another just before the happenings of the game occurred. The first scene of the short film
opened up the scenario for what would be taking place, concentrating on Zack and Cloud’s escape from the Nibelheim
Shin-Ra Mansion. The small movie was very nicely done, and Final Fantasy VII fans who watch it were able to recognize
parts from the game placed into the anime, which was rather exciting, as well as be given even more information about
what really took place during the five years. The battle scenes, few yet pleasing, were designed very well, and even
had one sometimes give us a few shockers. The anime was drawn beautifully and very detailed, even to the point of
getting down to the nitty-gritty of character and location design. Full
Final Fantasy Last Order Storyline
Shin-Ra Company had been alerted to an investigation at the Mako Reactor in
Nibelheim, saying that strange monsters have been coming from the reactor,
appearing throughout the small town. Shin-Ra had assigned two First Class
SOLDIERS to the operation, Sephiroth, who was known as a hero of his day, and
Zack, a spirited youth who was strong enough to become a First Class SOLDIER.
Among the two SOLDIERS was a Shin-Ra guard named Cloud Strife, whose hometown
was Nibelheim. When they arrived at the town, a young girl named Tifa would
guide them through the mountains to the Nibelheim Reactor. Cloud once knew Tifa
from years back, when he lived in the town, and he promised her that he would
rescue her whenever she was in trouble or a bind. He told her he was leaving the
town to join First Class SOLDIER as well. Cloud, however, never made First
Class, yet only became a Shin-Ra guard. Ashamed of not becoming what he promised
Tifa, he hid his face with his Shin-Ra helmet.
When Zack and Sephiroth enter the Nibelheim Mako Reactor, the mysterious
monsters are discovered to be humans, used as experiments, soaked and overly
exposed to Mako substance. Professor Hojo of the Shin-Ra Company had placed
these science specimens in several pods inside the Mako Reactor. Sephiroth notes
the writing “JENOVA” on a vault door inside the reactor, whom he was always told
Jenova was the name of his mother, and then begins to suspect he is created in
the same way these Mako exposed humans were. Full
