ADV's official Final Fantasy: Unlimited DVD show site was an official website for the North American release of the anime. It was launched in October 2003 and closed in mid-2008 along with the rest of ADV's show sites. After being created, the site was never updated, and only ever mentioned the first two DVDs of the seven total released. The website featured only content for the first four episodes (those released on the first DVD).
The website featured bios for the characters, artworks, and image downloads such as LiveJournal and AOL Messenger icons.
Contents[edit | edit source]
The splash screen featuring artwork of Ai, Yu, Chobi, and two Cactuar. It links to the Status section of the website, and features the ADV logo which links to ADV's site.
Status[edit | edit source]
These pages feature Lisa in their design.
The News and Information page advertises the series and mentions the contents of the site. Since this was the only ever news entry, the News Archive features the same content. The Release Information page features press releases for the Phase 1 and Phase 2 DVDs.
Party[edit | edit source]
This section features character bios and artwork for the main cast. The main characters pages are titled "The Main Players" except for Ai's which is "The Characters in your Party". Supporting characters are covered on one page titled "The Supporting Characters". Each page features the character's main artwork as part of the design, the supporting characters page uses Cid's artwork.
Yu Hayakawa[edit | edit source]
Class: Chocobo Kid
Personality: Passive, yet determined
The twelve year old Yu is Ai’s twin brother and the son of missing scientists Mary and Joe Hayakawa. The steadfast and resolute Yu joined his sister Ai, as well as Lisa, in boarding the ghost train to the mysterious world which lies beyond the pillar of darkness, in hopes of finding their missing parents.
Yu definitely comes off as the more passive of the twins. He has a special connection with the mysterious wielder of the Magun, Kaze, to whom he looks up to as almost a savior type figure. Yu also adopts rambunctious Chocobo Chobi as his own pet, and with the aid of the Chocobo feather which never leaves his head, he is able to understand the speech of all of the Chocobo.
Ai Hayakawa[edit | edit source]
Class: Child with an attitude.
Personality: Loud, bratty, and stubborn.
The twelve year old Ai is Yu’s twin sister and the daughter of missing scientists Mary and Joe Hayakawa. The loud and outgoing Ai joined her brother Yu, as well as Lisa, in boarding the ghost train to the mysterious world which lies beyond the pillar of darkness, in hopes of finding their missing parents.
Ai is definitely the louder, brattier, and more outgoing of the two twins. After Ai’s backpack was stolen by Fungo, Fabula gave her the bizarre Poshepocket. This little purse with an attitude is able to spout anything from his mouth that Ai wishes for. The only problem is that Poshepocket can tend to be a tad stubborn and he is also known to misbehave. His mouth winds up being taped over after he eats a huge amount of the team’s food supply, but he does come in handy quite often throughout the show, spitting out very useful items that gets Ai and the others out of trouble.
Lisa Pacifist[edit | edit source]
Age: Don't ask a woman that!
Class: Sexy Sorceress
Personality: Kind and gentle
Lisa Pacifist is dispatched by a mysterious agency to assist the twins in their search for the missing Hayakawa professors. Lisa is a practitioner of the powerful Kigen Arts style of magic, and her formidable powers have gotten the group out of dangerous situations on numerous occasions.
As the series progresses, it becomes quite apparent that Lisa has developed an extreme sense of closeness with the twins as she looks after them in a combination motherly, big-sister fashion. She also displays a unique fondness for Kaze during their travels together throughout the perilous world of Wonderland.
Kaze[edit | edit source]
Age: Unknown. looks to be late 20's, early 30's
Class: Gunfighter and Summoner
Personality: Cold and driven
Kaze is a lost traveler from another world who has forgotten his name and everything else about himself. His original home world was destroyed by Chaos, and now that he is in the Wonderland he has nothing to do but plot to destroy his arch-enemy Makenshi, or White Cloud, as Kaze calls him.
Kaze joins up with Lisa and the twins for a portion of their journey, but he is hesitant to commit to protecting them, even though he knows that he should. He is the wielder of the incredibly powerful Magun, and the user of Soil to call his Summons. He is also one of the two characters in the show who are believed to be “Unlimited.”
Makenshi[edit | edit source]
Age: Unknown. Looks to be late teens, early 20's.
Class: Summoner and Swordsman
Personality: Silent, but deadly.
Shrouded in mystery, we initially meet Makenshi serving as a henchman for the finicky Earl Tyrant. The Earl refers to him as Makenshin, the Evil Knight, and one of the Four Lords of Gaudium. However, Makenshi has another name, spoken only from the lips of his arch-nemesis Kaze, who knows him as Kumo.
Battling Kaze across multiple worlds, these two warriors fight one another every chance they get. Kumo uses his Mist Summons attacks to combat Kaze’s Soil/Magun Summons. Makenshi seems to be indifferent to Earl Tyrant’s ambitions, leading one to wonder if he is as evil as we are initially lead to believe?

- The tempestuous ruler of Wonderland, this little brat is also the one behind Chaos, who devours other worlds whole.

- The lead female warrior of the Comodeen, she seems to be the head of the fighting Comodeen troops, and also assists Ai whenever she changes clothes.

The Bromides of Legend[edit | edit source]
Various hidden pages existed on the website that were not linked to. It is unknown how these pages were meant to be accessed.
A page at chilly.php features special artwork. The first is the "Lisa is Chilly" artwork which features two artworks of Lisa with nipples protruding beneath her clothes. The first artwork only otherwise appears on the site showing only Lisa's face, and was later used in artwork for the Complete Collection DVD release with the shading on her right nipple removed. The second artwork features prominently on many pages as part of the site's design, however the artwork has not highlighted the nipple by rounding out the edge. Other artworks faced similar editing in ADV's promotional materials. A second set of artworks on the page feature character height comparisons.
A page for additional desktop wallpaper includes artwork not on the site. One of the artworks uses one of the "Lisa is Chilly" artworks, while two other artworks are reserved for this page for unknown reasons.
A page for Region 2 artwork showed the Japanese DVD covers. Seven of these artworks were used for the reversible covers on the ADV DVDs (because fewer ADV DVDs were released than originally in Japanese).
A page for the design process of the website shows early designs for the website and its splash screen.
