George Kamitani already said his views that if it was just "plain buxom" or "plain muscle" then it's just like all the other artwork out there. He wanted to avoid making it just like any other game.... he wanted "HEY LOOK!!!
" and not "hey look
". Bad example, I'm very sleepy, but the point WAS to get you to look, and he succeeded. If you're put off by it then that's all on you, but I don't think people should be put off. And this really has almost nothing on the YEARS of comic books doing the same thing or how men have fawned over Jessica Rabbit for 20 years. It's almost ignored compared to this -- like Din said, it's ignited the lightning rod. At the very least, and I've said it before, but I couldn't have been happier about including a female with such ridiculous muscles as in the Amazon -- that's almost certainly a first for games (especially muscles to what's almost a "Street Fighter"-level on a female -- not even Street Fighter themselves hit THAT level), Kamitani got his "HEY LOOK" from her alone.
Plus, here we get all dichotomies of body types, thin, "full", and just plain muscular.
And fuck it, I complained about this in the Lightning Returns thread, but I'm more amazed
that even despite the cup size, the boobs actually
move like boobs. Contrary to most anime/games, they don't really "jiggle" as much as bounce with
the lady's movement. So, even despite the PG-13 cut of her dress and overly-exaggerated proportions, I have to give the animator's a round of applause.
