How's that? My entire argument about cup size distribution was only a counterpoint to someone else's argument that anything over a B cup is "oversized" and unrealistic for a Japanese person... Please argue with them, not me. I have no particular interest in realism in my games, I was merely pointing out that a trend toward more voluptuous figures in the game would, in fact, be more realistic.First, why are you so intent on judging the ages of characters? With the exception of Coconathe romanceable ladies in the Ar tonelico series are NOT children. They have ages and personalities that aren't childlike at all. Oh, and asking the opinions of however many clueless people doesn't lend support to your opinion--the anime style isn't realistic. It's not meant to depict characters in a realistic fashion. It's like a foreigner watching the Simpsons and thinking "wow, those Americans sure are round and yellow".Spoiler:(who has an ending but no path),
I don't care one iota what their ages are. Frankly, personality and maturity in JRPGs share virtually no connection to age (yes, those 10 year old twins are probably ready to go out slaying magical beasts), and I could care less. Age was merely brought into the discussion as context for how old they appear.Wait, now you're making the leap from your arbitrary assignment of age to the social ideal that romantic interest in children isn't viable? Really? They're characters. It's fiction. No lolis were harmed in the production of this game. Don't try to make this into an ideological argument. There's none to be made.
Huh? Social ideal? Where are you getting any of this? I merely stated that, personally, I'm not interested in playing a character that's portrayed as romantically involved in women that appear as though they're 12. It has nothing to do with social ideals. I'm not here to judge others, nor do I feel I've done so anywhere in my posts. Please read what I actually typed.You should've just said this to begin with and left it at that. "I don't find the character designs sexually appealing. They're too loli. Lots of people who don't play these type of games agree with me."
With the exception of adding the trend toward more lolis, I don't think I could have come up with a more appropriate summation of my first post. Thanks for putting it so succinctly.
I never said they were going for 'realism', I only said that to a Japanese audience it doesn't look as 'childish' as it would to you.
I have grown up around anime, and I would not say that they're going more 'loli' as you say. To me, loli involves more than what you say.
And, outside of Shurelia, and maybe Jakuri, none of the romance interests could hope to pass off for 12. You're really over-exaggerating things.
I think Magus got it right, when he stated your main complaint is that they don't appeal to you sexually, because you want more busty/curvy women. Which is your opinion. But saying that they're going too loli is a bit off.
