What exactly is a "manga"? I've never heard of it. Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 16:43, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Never heard of a FFXII Manga? Sure this isn't a crap article? FaythOfFenrir 17:00, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Is there a source on this at all? I know there's defo a FFXII manga, but it's cited everywhere as being "a direct adaptation of the video game", so I can't think of why there'd be new additions. I also googled around and can't see mention of an Argas anywhere. Anyone? I can't really imagine Basch cutting off her arm. - Paramina 17:29, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

I found that there was a manga, but this article is sounding like another Yongu Pak. FaythOfFenrir 17:36, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think there is such a thing as "Argas". I also did a google search (Argas "Final Fantasy XII") and google thinks I've misspelt "Argos". Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 17:37, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
This is nowhere near as bad as Yongu Pak, at least no outlandish claims are being made and the spelling and grammar is good. It seems plausible, so I'm doing some snooping around. Diablocon 17:41, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
No outlandish claims? Basch suddenly bursts in a room and cuts someone's arm off? I mean, it'd be bad-ass. But slightly implausible. - Paramina 17:49, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
I mean outlandish in the sense "He's been in tons of FFs, WOMG!" Basch running in and cutting someone's arm off may be out of character, but some manga writers are known for taking liberties with a game's plot when doing adaptations. Diablocon 17:50, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
TADA! Argas and a naked Ashe. Don't say I don't spoil you people. Diablocon 17:53, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. Alright. Jeez though, why is she naked?! I'm going to have to look through this for Basch's arm-cutting scene, that sounds too awesome to ignore. - Paramina 18:00, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
I'm uploading that now. XD But yeah, she's naked because she's getting changed. And for Basche, he doesn't burst into the room, he's actually hiding in Ashe's bed, waiting for her to announce her traitorous ways, it's awesome. Diablocon 18:02, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

"Ow, my stabbing arm!" Ha ha. Brilliant. Now, since this has been proven true, what do we do re: other characters? Do we put Basch's awesome arm-slicing skills into his own article? Maybe under "Other appearances" if this isn't canonical? - Paramina 18:22, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

This seems like something that should be discussed in more detail at the forums. A quick suggestion from me is to put it in the story section, but add a little note stating it's status as canon might be questionable. Diablocon 18:23, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
Good point, I'll make a forum page about it now. - Paramina 18:25, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Template Edit

Argas should be in the FFXII template, but she's not in the game. So, should we put her in "Other Characters"? Kuzlalala 23:34, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
