Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu magazine confirmed on Friday that the Final Fantasy VII spinoff novel On the Way to a Smile Episode: Denzel will be adapted into an anime for the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete release on April 16. The anime will ship as an extra supplement on Advent Children's Blu-ray Disc releases. The Denzel part of On the Way to a Smile story begins as the character Denzel aims to enlist in the World Regenesis Organization (WRO) and "leaps" back into Denzel's past.
Scriptwriter Kazushige Nojima (Last Order Final Fantasy VII , Advent Children) wrote three On the Way to a Smile novelettes about what happened to the characters Denzel, Tifa, and Barret during the two years between the original Final Fantasy VII game and the computer-animated Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children feature. The Square Enix production company posted the Denzel novelette online. The novelette also appeared in the Final Fantasy VII :Advent Children Prologue book and the limited edition Japanese collector's set of Advent Children.
A new On the Way to a Smile -Final Fantasy VII- book, which will ship on the same day as the Advent Children Complete release, will include the original three novelettes along with novelettes for the characters Yuffie, Turks, and Red XIII. A-1 Pictures, the anime studio attached to Sony's Aniplex production company, and BeStack are producing the Denzel anime project.
