I dont mind, I am willing to date a woman that pretty even if she was born a man because Cloud is that pretty. I was like damn.... When I saw the reveal. He does look like Lightning from Final Fantasy VII but only blond.
I believe at first he saw her as a little sister but this scene screams romance. He have romantic feelings for Yuffie and I believe Yuffie likes him too that's why she cried when he cried. What they have is not a sibling like bond. This is a romantic love that's why he sacrificed his life for Yuffie, he loves her for real.
I really wanted Sonon to be a teammate for future episode but sadly he passed away. He retired from life. His death though helped Yuffie mature as a character. She was very carefree at the start of the mission. I hope her newfound maturity will carry through the next episode once it is released for real.
This is now a clue. If you meet a playable character who is not from the original. That person is going to die. At least this prepares us for the inevitable death of the beloved local florist. The tragedy is always been a part of Final Fantasy games.
His death is not wasted in vain, Now Yuffie becomes angrier to Shinra that she wants them to fall. With all the deaths in episode 1, we should be used to it. There is a war and rebellion on this game so deaths are part of it.
Square Enix made us care about a character we barely know. I was hoping Sonon will be playable on episode 2 too but sadly it will not happen. They could have killed Billy Bob instead, No one cares about Billy Bob. Just imagine the reaction of people who never played the original gets to witness the death of a beloved character in a future episode.
I don't like Sonon at first because he looks like the run on the mill JRPG character but he grew on me as the game progress. Yuffie is a refreshing lead because she is the anti-Cloud. She gave me the different perspective when I played her.
Hear me out! I think Sonon is alive. He became an Azul! If he died we would have seen him die but it is kind off offscreen. He might comeback as a brainwashed enemy for Yuffie to kill off in a future episode.
His death is really saddening. I thought he will be an additional character for the team in episode 2. Imagine how could would have been to see him as a team member for episode 2. He could have been the replacement of a character who is about to die.
To the People who are shipping them to become a couple.... Who wronged you? Why did you develop such disturbing mind set. Sonon have brotherly feelings for her. They are not romantic. You guys needed to go to Church.
