Just on the point of "over sexualising" - are Manga and Anime style Girls over-sexualised?
She's showing no more skin than lead female characters from Xenoblade or Pandora's Tower
+1 for Philly D though
They are, admittedly, unfortunately be it by design or overzealous fanworks.
I donno, man. I grew up with anime like Shinzo, Digimon Adventure and Saint Seiya.
Fanservice used to be a rare novelty, but with things like Ikki Tousen and Highschool of the Dead today, and a lot of other anime slowly but surely breaking the borders between fanservice and outright hentai, I just feel that if you're gonna be a Femme!Connor, then do it with a bit of damn class. You don't need cleavage and a midriff to be a sexy Assassin.
Sure her Pikachu from way back when was cute, but I personally don't feel that she needs to replicate that success with everything else... actually, forget what I said before, maybe she should keep away from Aveline. xD
I might feel differently if she went with a character who by design was there for fanservice, like Naga the White Serpent from Slayers, and to sedate the masses, I throw in the obligatory "power to her" hyperbole. She's gonna do what she wants despite anyone else, and that's fair enough, and again, I'm not saying I'm offended, and I'm not calling her a 'fake'. I just think something a bit more reserved wouldn't hurt her from time to time.
Surely there's no harm in that, is there?
Feel free to add me on Wii U. My username is just there on the right under my display pic, haha.
