Final Fantasy 7 remake: some Japanese fans complain about Aerith's new design

Nov 11, 2017
sometimes I think dismissive blanket judgments about people with anime avatars are unfair but then I see something like that "horse face" comment in this thread and think hmm maybe they're fine actually
T B F, just as many anime avatars are arguing that the complainers are being foolish or gross...

But I can't blame ya, lol. Seriously. "Horse face"? What nonsense...

I hope to God Tifa looks as different as possible. Give her the broadest jaw possible. Who gives a fuck about what these Otaku think, they are the japanese equivalent of the alt-right/gamergate.

They moefied her, like Faith from Mirror's Edge (remember that ?). Nothing new from a fringe of Japanese fans, we all have those.

I'll get everyone to agree and say they can model Aeris after cosplayer Enji Night
The Mirror’s Edge thing is news to me, I actually really like the look of that, ahem, “moefied” Faith. (Edit: Just noticed the enlarged breasts. That’s... fine, I guess. lol)

But FF7R’s Aerith looks great as-is. Hope they don’t change it, the longer face looks better.
