Weirdly enough, I prefer the censored versions...
Agreed. There is a reason girl-boxers have beaten out thongs and g-stings in terms of what kind of lingerie is considered the norm these days. For me, it's not really about the amount of skin showing, it's just a lot more flattering and attractive looking.
I have a pair that actually look like Edea's "censored chick boxers". They're silk, and I love them like MAD. I can almost literally SLIIIIDE into bad. Whieee!
I actually love that they have Ringabel in a similarly risqué bikini bottom to fit in with the ladies...
I dunno, I'm getting all old and annoyingly mature, but I hate gratuitously sexy, skin-baring armor that ironically can be "better armor" stats-wise. x)
Overall though, I do like the class designs for Brave Default (I actually got the art book recently, she's reaaal purdy). They're a great combination of "same" and "different" from the FF-series' ideas of what jobs look like.
....except whatever the fuck happened with their "Valkyrie" idea. I think that was a bit of a swing and a miss (and speaking Valkyrie Profile is one of my favorite games, it matters to me dammit).
