    It's very tart like lemon juice,used more in cooking to add flavour than eaten like an orange or similar.

    The correct answer is that it is cultural. FF7 even lampshaded the whole thing:
    Cloud is the androgynous one whom women fawn over and is interested in women.
    The bunch of 'roided out musclemen in the dojo were a bunch of homosexual crossdressers with the best g-string in the game.

    The Japanese view musclemen as homosexuals and androgynes as desirable. Simple as that.

    And given certain rumours about the musclemen of the WWE, the Japanese might be on to something...

    Eh...can't really fault 'em there. Have you ever taken a look at the Amano reference drawings for the 'classic' Final Fantasies? Same shit, different art style (superior, I'd argue, yet the point still remains).

    I'd actually be surprised if Kit-Kats didn't come in pink over there; they reportedly have some weird national obsession with them, said to be entirely based around homophonic equivalence of the product name to one one of their cultural idioms for "break a leg". You're supposed to buy a unique flavor you know the recipient will love as a well-wishes gift for exam time.

    Also the color pink has kind of different connotations in Japan.
