you can just say otaku to save time
Wow. That amazingly what aerith looks like now. You really googled the right image lol. Crazy though. Now, in my head cannon, aeris is italian.
The fuck is polikore?As someone who goes onto Japanese media pretty regularly...this is not an uncommon occurrence on social media. Just letting yall know its not a handful of people. There are people who dont mind the design of course, but the amount of people who actually get on the bandwagon on this shit and talk about "polikore" and how japanese companies are anti japan because of this kinda shit is fucking infuriating. It aint an isolated incident and it should be called out, not dismissed
It's less about the redesign being 'bad' as much as the intent behind it being petty, misogynistic and conspiratorial.Here are my two cents on this:
- If all it takes for the design to be considered good is to squish her face a little it can't be that bad in the first place.
- If all it takes for her design to be considered good and not anime is to stretch her face a little, the fan edit can't be that bad in the first place.
Her official design is still stylisized video game character anime beauty as fuck, not a real person look, so I dunno bout all of this. Everyone is crazy in this.
While I don't think it is crazy to go into a hypothetical FF7 remake and have the expectation that it look a bit "anime", it does make me laugh that after all this time and the other characters we've seen (that have a similar style) that the critique doesn't come up until the first female party member is revealed. We could have had what, 4 years of Barret photoshops and opinions but didn't....wonder why....
Horse face? Jesus fucking Christ. You’re such a cliche. Such a demeaning term to refer to an objectively attractive female character coming from a person with a literal anime waifu complete with wedding dress in your profile.
The only weird thing is that despite not looking anime she still acts anime: the weird bending over for no reason, the "blink and nod at the same time" head movement, the way she holds her flower basket with a twisted arm, etc.
Its something the they got from 4chan and far right websites where Japanese media is consumed. They also have started using SJW to refer to a lot of these sorts of things and basically combining it with anti "western progressive values in media" sort of thing. Its really scary how this kind of stuff moves.
That's not really anime, so much as japanese mannerisms somewhat exaggerated for media to the point where its become its own sort of thing. Like how yankees always sit with their knees bent over with straw in their mouths. shit like that came from the 80sThe only weird thing is that despite not looking anime she still acts anime: the weird bending over for no reason, the "blink and nod at the same time" head movement, the way she holds her flower basket with a twisted arm, etc.
I bet she runs like Vanille from FFXIII
This is heartening to hear. Still, the fact that GGers have spread polikore and even SJW as terms to gaming otaku is pretty scary nonetheless.
Anyone who looks at this character and says "she's not cute" is clearly either lying or obsessed with "moe" art enough that they're now trying to force an unrealistic art style in a game trying to be realistic looking.
I'm going to be awfully miffed if they do, ngl, especially when Yuffie can be and would make sense as the designated moeblob vs Aerith or Tifa who are actual adults.
