Pop Star Ariana Grande × Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius


Western pop star Ariana Grande – which Japanese otaku (or most westerners for that matter) will clearly have no familiarity with – has somehow obtained a tribute in mobile RPG Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius, where she will actually be present in the game wearing a bunny girl outfit, something that she is apparently notable for.

Pop star Ariana Grande:













Whether she will be a playable character or part of an event has not been specified, though many fans have shown a great amount of confusion over why such a B-lister was chosen to make an appearance in the game…

    I don't "get" it. Why? It's not like she's got some weird kind of cult following in Japan, like the Boss coffee ads featuring Tommy Lee Jones or some other odd western celebrity like Gaga.

    Is she doing it for the money? Is she one of those self-proclaimed "nerd girls" (who obviously did not grow up in the Squaresoft-era)?

    Or is she doing this purely to reel in that elusive, tasteless, 15-year old male Final Fantasy-playing demographic?

    Wasn't she doing the "I don't want to be objectified" garbage even though she's so sexless she has to dress like a trashy slut for any attention...?

    Whatever, can only hope people just throw doughnuts at her face every time they see her.

    Money. She's a pop star, man. They're entertainers and business people masquerading as "artists" and "musicians". Sure they may have talent, I'll give them that much, but a singing voice can be nothing more than a tool if you don't use it for anything more than lending voice to a manufactured product made by someone else. Oh, and she's probably also doing it for fun. Why do anything else when you can make tons of money just having fun? What more is there to life and existence than that, right? These people are the ultimate hedonists, imo. And Square-Enix has also been putting business over art or anything else for a long time now.

    Make bunny girl character + name her after celebrity = profit.

    If I wouldn't know I would never guess that chibi bunny is Ariana.

    Unless she's a good 6 star, she's just more shit clogging up the pull chances.

    She comes off more like Disney pedo-bait than any kind of real pop-star. I'm sincerely confused as to why she's treated like the greatest fucking thing ever to happen to music and media in general, though, since her music is pretty bog-standard pop shit.

    No pop stars are "real", they're all fake and manufactured like McDonald burgers. And they're all treated like the greatest thing to ever happen to music. It's been like this with western music since the late 90s, it's just another industry now like the oil industry. As for Disney pedo-bait, along with Selena Gomez it's not surprising anymore.

    Its just a sprite in a mobile game, a platform where the casuals can recognize her and pay to see that shit nothing more
    marketing at its finest

    Better or worse than Coleman camping gear and shameless Cup Noodle sidequests?

    Coleman and Cup Noodles and product placements in general still suck, but they're less annoying than this.

    Coleman camping gear is more interesting than she is, so I'd say worse. It's a toss-up on the Cup Noodle sidequest.

    Look, I dont like her either, but anyone who asks "who?" about a person with internet videos that literally have over 500 million views (even if a lot of them are probably fake views or repeated views) is just making themselves seem like they live under a rock or at least disconnected from the internet or cable tv... you're not gonna be successful at making her out to be a nobody, unfortunately.

    well sorry but not everyone watches pop music shit and/or is American, so get off your high horse, yes there are people who simply don't know her, maybe because they don't give a fuck about some cum dumpster that is pushed into the splotlight because she can sing and dance like every other showbizz monkey

    You basicly answered yourself. Yes, most people are probably not American and only speak English to go to websites that are in English because they interest them. Guess what, "websites of interest" will probably not contain ultra-generic pop music crap.

    @5:54 are you shitting me? Havent you been to any countries where they dont officially speak english and all their radios play english pop music? taxis in thailand know who beyonce is unfortunately. next you'll tell me only americans know what mcdonalds is

    You dont have to watch any of it to get the jist of what stupid shit is going on in the world, like something that's effecting millions of people, you just have to get out of your house or turn on the radio or the news. Hell I only know about all this shit because I'm forced to hear it on the radio where I work. I guess it's really true that most people that come here just shut-ins who fap and surf the internet all day? Sure, MAYBE if you live in another country and dont speak or hear english you might not hear anything about the latest pop music, but you clearly understand english so your chances are still high if you're not a total recluse.

    Doesn't look bad, although there's some clearly wrong things about it. For example, next thing you know she's going to lick some donuts wearing that thing, something pretty much in bad taste.

    There's been like at least 10 singers in the past 2 decades that people have said that exact same thing about, lol. Disney is one of the major rulers of the world.

    I don't even listen to her music, but this worked to create awareness and got me to download the game.

    How? Why would something you dont even listen to make you aware of something associated to it? Because you read about it on SanCom? Because then I'd give that kudos to spreading awareness to SanCom (reluctantly), not Ariana Grande.
