Well, I suppose they just think that Female characters are more suited for the Alchemy and such in the games. If you think about it the Male leads were more for combat then making things. I think Klein was like the only one that actually used alchemy in the earlier games, besides the males in the Mana Khemia games that is.

Lets not sugarcoat it, the truth is Gust decided on female characters for the moe - and it works, there are lots of people in the target market who strictly play games with female casts for the moe (Hence Neptunia's popularity).

Hell, GUST even openly admitted that they refused to draw Rorona in her mid-20's because it wouldn't be as cute, so instead they made her a mega-loli for Meruru. I'm still looking forward to the explanation for that in game.

And it backfired. Japanese fans raged hard. They wanted Christmas Cake Rorona.

That's good to hear, I would have thought I was in minority for wanting to see mature Rorona. I actually like seeing characters grow up over a series. :(

I am totally a fan of lolis, but I would have rather seen Rorona grown up tbh. I think most loli fans think the same. course, I'm not a crazy Japanese otaku, I'm just a crazy American otaku :P

Yeah, I know many people who would prefer to have seen her grown up, myself included. Suppose we can't always get exactly what we want to see though. I'm in the crazy American otaku category as well for the record. lol

Well, this IS a series that tries to make all the girls really cute, so... XD

But yeah, I thought the character models in-game were a bit wonky compared to the cutscene art, so I'm not really surprised. Rorona might've looked really weird in-game when/if they tried to model her.

I don't

I love how the character models look in-game ~

Getting a little off subject here, but anyway...

I guess we won't be seeing an Atelier game with a male protagonist for a while, or at all, unless someone submits an idea of a male character and a general back story of him and the world he resides in. I really love to submit my idea; but if it comes to that, I have to do with simply fan story.

The one thing to note here is that NISA doesn't make games, they handle the localization of games. So submitting ideas to them wouldn't really help you. In addition there are all kinds of legal problems with making a game using the ideas of someone outside of your company, so even if you did write your idea in Japanese and send it to GUST directly they would most likely ignore it.

To quote Extra Credits, staff of every gaming company would have a thousand ideas of their own they'll never be able to put to use, and a team as imaginative as GUST would be no exception. Bring them a prototype of an actual game, including coding, art and storyboard, then they might care.

Otherwise, it'd just be downright insulting for you to presume your idea better than something a team of professionals could come up with.

Kind of odd to be angry when the last post was a month old and the OP of this thraed is likely long gone.

The main characters in general are pretty bland, male or female. :lol:
