Nim is just a mess, too much going on. And she looks like a Who from the live action Grinch movie.

Dahlia’s got the proportions of...well I guess these are hentai artists...
I'm pissed at Nim cause at 5am in the morning in a sweaty as hell trailer in Florida and after cracking god knows how many rare crystals hoping for KOS-MOS and then I found one legendary core crystal and I got her..................... My head was about to explode.

Luckily got KOS-MOS like a few days later and then I fell asleep at a gun range.

And don't get me started on the anatomy of some of them.

Nim frightens me emotionally.



And they all have one pose whenever they get knocked out
Nim was one of my first rare blades and this was me when unlocking her:

"What in whoville?"

Despite some of the weird ones there's some really good ones as well like Wulfric and Perceval for example! I think Perceval was my very first rare blade. His artwork is just amazing too!

Pyra and mythra being included in smash at all is funny considering they were clearly designed for the rule 34 art first and foremost.

I don't agree with that. Having a bit of fan service doesn't take away a whole character's personality and even design.
Just like when a woman wears clothing that's sexy, she's not a sex object. you know?

Alright. Bowser's Fury at 50% completion! I fully completed the first three islands at the lakeside as well as all four islands in the ruins before collecting one stray shine in the wasteland to get to the 50 shines needed to access the "final" Bowser fight. Gonna tackle this island by island and shoot my way to 100%! In the morning. I'm tired.

My biggest concern regarding Pokémon week is the possibility of TPC not announcing anything and rather spend the week with the celebrity collabs.

I personally could keep on living, but I would be sad for all my friends Who are Pokémon fans and expected anything.
Yeah. Imagine that.

Honestly though, I think they’re going to announce something. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if they ripped off Mario and did a Pokémon 30th(?) Anniversary Direct.

And let’s hope Nintendo does the same thing for Zelda, Donkey Kong, and Metroid.

OK, I don't know how many of you watch streams on Twitch, or even care about Twitch, but I get the uneasy feeling the site has a mind of its own, because whenever I mute a stream, not 10 seconds later, it unmutes itself. Seriously, I have no idea what's going on.

If we had to say who the best rare blade in Xenoblade 2 was that probably wasn't a party or guest member it had to be Finch. Tagging Lamperouge Lamperouge and Dr. Metal X Dr. Metal X cause it's Xeno talk.

Lovingly forgetful, super adorable, designer was that of Xenosaga and voiced by the one and only Aoi Yuki aka the VA of Futaba, Madoka and Tsuyu.

If I had to say overall in the game Blade or not, it has to have been Lora, Jin and Haze.

Lora - That rough and tumble light samurai/monk wear is super cool. I had my theory about her in the main game but it didn't turn out.

Jin - The most Tetsuya Nomura by Tetsuya Nomura character you can find. Make him a few years younger and have him say not interested or friendship and you are there. Plus Takahiro Sakurai killed it in his performance.

Haze - Really cool weapon design and the Shinto Priestess influence is right there in full which I love. Only issue with her and Lora is that I wasn't a fan of the voices in Japanese mostly. Saori Hayami's performance was ok but would have thought someone like Kana Hanazawa would have been a better choice IMO.

I'm gonna go to bed.

They’re gonna have something on Pokémon Day.

If they don’t I will literally drink water.

I'm not sure to be mad at you for not specifying what the spoiler's for, or to be mad at me for clicking it not realizing it was a MHA spoiler.

ok what the ****...why did nobody in my entire life tell me that the end credits to AoT go absolutely hard as ****? Also the opening parts of the intro reminds me of one of the Mega Man songs and idk why

also

I recently came across this series:

Kinda weird but I think it’s pretty cool so I wanted to share it, and the main character’s design is very cool as well.

So far there’s two more cartoons in the series on the creator’s channel, as well as others outside this series but I’ve only watched one (was cool too) plus a couple of funny Undertale animations. The other two Ena cartoons are cool too imo.

Blades & not so blades here



(yeah she show off her legs are bit, but that's it)
Those girls, alongside Lora & Haze, cleary show that Saito is cleary able to draw female character design that aren't overtly sexy, and even then, while you can make fun of Pyra/Mythra all you want. Brighid design work much better with her personality & thanks to her VA & animation, she look quite elegant & confident in herself despite being quite fanservicey to the eyes.

Also, there's a ton of peoples who got their start as porn artist & managed to get into bigger project afer a period of time, especially in Japan. Can we stop throwing this dumb argument around?

Oh and, you all know Ursula? The New Groove girl?

Her design was done by the same one who did Dahlia design.

And guess what? No sign of fanservice here either.

It's really tiring to see that kind of stuff again & again, but even more so when I just wake up. I know some design aren't great, but come on guys. (btw if you're asking, no Irepan, I don't count on you there, alongside others)

Dr. Metal X Dr. Metal X just read your post and I hope that I haven't said anything which you may have took badly.

The only reason I brought up the fact Xenoblade 2 had many character artists for each character was because I found It to be an interesting topic and It seemed quite curious that there would be so many different artists working on a single game (while still keeping their main artstyles).
