I don’t understand why everyone is freaking out over the 8 to 13 year old age range… I mean, Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z were aimed at those ages as well and look at the content those shows included!
…Although, the world was not as sensitive back then as it is now.

To be fair to those worried:

1: The 90s were a different time for animation, even in Japan. And even with those shows you mentioned, there was still some censorship done in the West for the networks to air it on TV back then, eg; remove blood, mentions of death, etc.

2: I don’t think it’s the range that worries people, but more so where in that range it’ll land. Best case scenario, it lands closer to the 13 year old end to be more faithful to the source material. Worse case scenario, the end result is an adaptation that talks down to its audience rather than treats it with respect. That’s something nobody wants, especially the fans.

And this early in the planning stage, seeing as it was just announced last week, it’s too soon to see where the ball will drop or how high it’ll bounce, so to speak. It can either be really good or really bad. All we can do is wait for more info in the meantime.

Have to say, I did not see this coming. FFIX seemed to be more of a game that was quietly loved (which I appreciated, compared to FFVII's treatment). This was not something that I expected would get much attention for a show. I look forward to seeing how it goes.
