If you go on 5ch and blogging sites(whch is a majority of what Japanese entertainment sites are these days), its mostly the otaku weeb basement dwellers crying about how Aerith has been westernized and she looks like a gorilla and shit just because her face is more realistic. Its stupid and you should not give it the time of day

I think I saw on Twitter this was debunked as fake or an effort by people to incite anger at Japanese people.

Either way I would love to see the source for this
Lol...considering how many japanese comments i have seen about it, its definitely not debunked. There is a lot of people talking about it and saying just this.

"Its from a westerner trying to get people mad at japanese!" is clear conspiracy nonsense

Both are looking fine.

Didn't see the need to change the look of the left one.

Some people just can't handle things not going their way. They'll have a lot to complain about when this is finished. lol

I'm always bothered by the name Aerith instead of Aeris.
Why did the fan edit make her head look like a baseball? It looks weird as shit.
Yeah it really does. I really don't understand this. I guess it's all about personal taste and style preference, but it looks bizarre. The original looks rather good, I don't understand what issues someone could have with it.

One Japanese guy complained on Twitter and suddenly it's the entirety of Japan. The edit actually look worse and not even close to her original design.
yeah, this is a few days old but I see the same sort of sensational phrase thrown out there that because this person did this, all of japan is about to riot over it

Are you new to social media? Many times it's only a handful of people doing this and the media and other people act like almost anybody thinks/acts this way.
