    It's probably not too well known but an official sequel for Final Fantasy V does indeed exist! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy:_Legend_of_the_Crystals

    Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals is the first anime to use the Final Fantasy license. It was released in Japan in 1994 and distributed by Urban Vision in 1997-1998 in North America. Urban Vision Entertainment no longer holds the license to this series, and is no longer licensed to anyone in the US.

    It is divided into four thirty minute OVA episodes:

    The story takes place on the same world as Final Fantasy V, named Planet R, set two hundred years in the future, where three of the four crystals have been stolen. The original heroes in Final Fantasy V are now legends of the past, and a new evil, Deathgyunos, has risen on the Black Moon and must be dealt with. Mid, the only recurring character from Final Fantasy V, contacts a new hero and heroine: Prettz (Pritz) and Linaly (a descendant of Bartz). They eventually meet the sky pirate Rouge and Commander Valcus, commander of The Iron Wing.

    Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals has a short and quickly resolved plot, typical of many fantasy OVAs. Due to its short length, a small time passes between the introduction of characters to their ability to defeat the "final boss." This contrasts sharply with the overall length of the Final Fantasy games themselves, as well as longer fantasy anime series such as Dragon Quest: Dai No Daibouken.


    Characters

    Valkus
    Rouge
    Queen Reina
    Mid
    Ra Devil

    Contrast with game setting
    Several visual differences exist between the anime and the game its setting is based on:

    Chocobos appear featherless and somewhat alien in appearance.
    Linaly discovers that her magic abilities are channeled through her undergarments, rather than chanted and cast.
    Linaly eventually unleashes a powerful wave of Chocobos, resembling an ultimate spell or summon. Chocobos have been available as summoned creatures in previous Final Fantasy games, usually at lower levels. This would indicate Linaly's spell is a significantly magnified version of such a lower level spell.

    Japanese voice cast
    Rica Matsumoto: Prettz
    YĆ«ko Minaguchi: Linaly
    Shigeru Chiba: Valkus
    Wakana Yamazaki: Rouge
    Etsuko Kozakura: Queen Reina

    English voice cast
    Matt Miller: Prettz
    Sherry Lynn: Linaly
    John DeMita: Valkus
    K.T. Vogt: Rouge
    Barbara Goodson: Queen Lenna
    Julia Fletcher: Mid
    John Hostetter: Gush Hassam
    Michael Sorich: Ra Devil

    I guess that I'm from this Bizarro world where FF SIX would be the sequel to FF Five. But we am weird that way on Bizarro world.

    Have you even watched it Spaz? I've seen the first episode and it wasn't that bad. They even had the chocobo music in the anime when one was summoned. It's different in that they put in some comedy and that the pacing is different since unlike a video game they only have 4 OVA episodes. Though, it is an official Square done sequel to FF5 since even Nobou Uematsu was on the team to do music for it. Like it or not, it's the first official canon sequel to a Final Fantasy game which people seem to forget. Though, FF5 was never released outside of Japan so unless you've played a rom or I believe it may have been in Anthology collection either way I doubt anyone has actually played the game.

    Seen it, way back before DVDs. It was grade 7, and I had just played Final Fantasy III.
    Not having ever heard of 'Final Fantasy V,' it didn't make a whole lot of sense.

    Also, it wasn't very good.
