Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
Several questions:

1. Why are all of the characters female?

2. Why do almost all of them have Japanese names?

3. Why do they all have the same light skin tone?

In a future space navy representing what I'm assuming is a united Earth, I would expect more diversity. Unless the backstory includes some kind of catastrophe that wiped out nearly all of the planet's population but spared Japanese females for some reason.

Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
In due time, my friend. Another thing with anime is usually huge casts of characters and we've barely gotten through half of the friendlies.

Wow you really sound like a Twitter fiend. OK why cant the characters be female and have a light skin tone....do you have something against that considering this isnt your mod or idea. Why do you have a thing against Japanese names for the characters maybe in the future that is pretty standard naming schemes. Oh and "diversity" i love hearing that from those that dont even support the things they are complaining about. Personally i cant wait to see how this turns out because that is what we as a community should be doing inspiring those who are actually doing something and adding to this franchise even in their own way please go back to Twitter where you belong SJW.
I have been away too long. The challenge has waned. They must learn anew the meaning of ph34r

 
Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
Anime.

That's not an excuse. Have you ever heard of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure? The first two protagonists are British. There is not a Japanese protagonist until part 3, and he is half Japanese. Some of his allies are a French man and a black Arabic man. The villain is also British.

Lupin III is French.

Spike from Cowboy Bebop is German, going by his last name.

Roger Smith from the Big O is American (or at least strongly implied to be).

If you go into non-protagonists and supporting characters, we could go on forever.

Is there at least some in-universe justification for it?

Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
Nope! I just like it that way. Not everything needs a deep explanation, sometimes things are just the way they are because the author prefers it that way.

Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
Well most anime I have seen that take place in the 'real world' (as opposed to a fantasy world like One Piece, Full Metal Alchemist, One Punch Man, etc.) either take place only in Japan where having an all - Japanese cast makes sense, or they have many foreign characters. Also at least half of the protagonists and supporting characters are male.

So I really don't understand your one-word "anime" response.

Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
And I don't understand your weird need to have this odd crusade against my work solely because it has a stronger focus on the girls, which you already expressed was your major dislike for WoD, and this mod is not too much different in that regard.

I think we both know you're not happy with the fanservice-focused decisions I took, but in the end, I chose to do it this way and this is my project. You're VERY free to ignore this board and live on happily without this pointless arguing.

Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
i dont understand this hill you've chosen to die on. just turn your brain off and make up your own headcanon if you want, say it's a japanese ship therefore japanese people or a japanese fleet therefore japanese people

or just accept that people are weebs and thus you'll see typical weeb behaviour

either way, just move on, lad

 
Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
But I like the ships and effect designs you have shown. I am not against the mod in general. I am just providing my input on what I would like to see.

Re: Pointless Arguing over anime character designs
Well, sorry to say, but I am unable to accept this input. Everyone else is fine with the way it's taking, but if it irritates you that much, you can just delete the respective files from the mod when it releases.

I'm not saying to delete anything, just suggesting to add things?

Well okay. But spart_n agreed that a darker skinned character or two would be welcome.

actually he is from mars
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Alright, then I assume this settles this discussion that's already long overstayed this welcome.
