Site Info and Links

Named after one of Nanaki's limit breaks because I am often uncreative with names, Howling Moon was opened in July 2014, along with the fanlisting portion of the site. It happened thanks to Amassment's Creature Feature Challenge – I'd never previously considered making a shrine for Nanaki even though I'd always liked his character. But the challenge put the idea in my head and I've really enjoyed putting this site together. It gave me a new appreciation for Nanaki while also being really frustrated at how little he appears in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. He is a sorely overlooked character, and I'm glad to shine a spotlight on him.

In March 2017, Howling Moon was revamped with a new look and a refresh of old content and some new additions. It is likely it will remain static – except for fanlisting updates – until the release of the Final Fantasy VII remake.

This is the second layout for Howling Moon. I was never really happy with the first layout – I settled for it after a long struggle and scrapping several previous attempts. And while a similar struggled happened with this layout (there's so little art of Nanaki!), I'm much happier with the result. The image used is a screenshot I took while replaying Final Fantasy VII on Steam, and the moon in the background is a photograph from the NASA website. Sprites and other images were found at the wikia. The previous layout can be viewed here.
