LOL that's 26?!  xD
I have to say I like Dogi's new silver fox look going on anyways. ;)

EDIT: ACTUALLY. Gotta give Dogi the benefit of the doubt?  Game of Throne's "The Mountain" was 26 too. :O

I'm willing to believe that. If my brother (27) grew a beard, he'd look a lot like that.

I declare her Awesome! She female, not a teenager, and appears to understand how both armour and clothes work. That's pretty unique.

(Of course, it'll later be revealed that's she's wearing hotpants and stripper boots, or something, but a girl can dream.)

Have some more underdressed females.

And some shopkeepers.

Olga has the worst clothing design I have seen for a video game character in a good long while.

I'm normally not one for criticizing skimpy armor, but I do kind of hate the designs (such as Olga's) that seem to be saying "This outfit covers my naughty bits more by coincidence than actual design"

^ get better acquainted with the cast of Star Ocean 5.

Olga's worse.  Checkers at least has a weird sort of.... aesthetic sensibility to it (see Klutz's comment above).  Like, you can tell she purposely dressed that way, at least, even if it looks ridiculous.  Olga looks like she didn't even try to get dressed at all.

Well, she tried, but by the time she put on the last layers she noticed she forget a shirt and some probably some other stuff. Fixing it was too much of a bother, though, so she just went "Meh, there's always tomorrow" and started her day. Sarai constantly dresses like a magical stripper anyway, so it was not as if her little oopsie was going to stand out that much.

Unfortunately, Dana and company are kinda hamstrung by the whole "Everyday is Toga-Party Day here in Doomed Lost Ancient Kingdom of Myth and Legend" shtick that most high adventure tales tend to fall back on.

Because if it wasn't obvious yet, Dana and crew are most likely going to be 'The Mailbox'ing Adol and crew from the ancient past in order to combat whatever ancient evil ends up destroying the island's token ancient civilization which Dana and Co. will end up sealing while Adol and friends either defeat or reseal.

Which was exactly my point (other than limiting it to just Ys; it's all of Falcom's catalog, even the modern stuff like Trails of the Whatever and Tokyo Xanadu, that's part of their charm). Its so rote that they went for the complete look.

Granted, it doesn't excuse it. But it does explain it.
