You mean Shantae?

Others have already corrected you on the developer. I'll acknowledge that yes, Shantae does have some skimpy clothing stuff, but I wouldn't call it a fanservice-platformer franchise. Clothing aside, it's pretty kid-friendly, and has the vibe of a nice, silly American cartoon. It's an odd juxtaposition, I can't think of anything else like it.

This is a very cool piece. Mythra wearing Xenoblade X armor is an interesting choice and the Overdrive counter at max adds to the tension of the (already won) arm wrestle here.

Curious about the empty white space to Zenobia's left tho.

Here's the sauce.

Zenobia + Mythra aside, this feels pretty random. Why Middle-Aged Racist Otaku with the two Blades? And why arm-wrestling? East Asia Fetishizer would make me think something like the game of go instead.

Randomness can be refreshing though. There is amusement to be had from seeing unexpected combinations working out. A fanart of Jin and Nagi would be rather plain (if still possibly cool), why not Jin and *picks first name to enter my mind* ...Mia?

I do like throwing Mythra in the XCX armor, even stuff as utilitarian as (which is good in its own right when anime armor is so often impractical) Sakuraba Heavy Wear (Male). I'll take Zeke in Meredith Light Wear next. And maybe Poppi QT🥧 cosplays as the Ares.

As soon as I saw the "Proudly talk of incest" dialogue earlier, I thought this was coming.

Well, aslong as the story is good i will shut my eye over this, especially since they are *adopted* cousins anyway.

You missed the backstory where she had her DNA altered to align more closely with her soulmate. Blood type and horoscope are overrated, true compatibility is in your genes.

I already knew it, I just brought it up because it fit the description.

True. I've only played Pirate's Curse, but for a game where everyone runs around in bikinis, it was surprisingly light on the dumb sexy nonsense.

It does have it's minor moments from the games I've finished (Pirate's Curse and Half-Genie Hero), but both games are comedic about it.

Zenobia and Mythra have a rivalry according to the former's Heart-to-Heart.

I did say surprisingly light, not completely light. It could've been way worse, is what I'm saying.

Also I'll admit the hip swaying at the beat of her extremely catchy theme was neat, not for horny reasons, I know you're going to bonk me regardless, but I'll say it anyway

I respect Shantae for that. We're often very scared of showing too much skin in our media, so when a game like Shantae comes around and presents it like a normal thing without drawing attention to the "sexiness" of it, it's a very nice breath of fresh air, like using the swastika as a buddhist symbol of peace and goodwill instead of...well, you know.

No, I thought of it on the spot. Somebody shouldn't run with it.

I was inspired in part by reading years ago that somebody in Iceland, due to its small population in the middle of nowhere, made an app that lets you check how related you are to a potential spouse. -Except that was to prevent accidental incest.

That, and sci-fi setting. Why couldn't nanomachines in science-fiction go about journeying to every cell in your body making alterations to the Adenine-Thymine and Guanine-Cytosine bonds that define who you are?

I remember that, and it's spoilers location. But was wondering specifically why arm-wrestling in the fanart. -It makes sense as an easy test of physical strength, but it nonetheless contributed to the overall randomness of the artwork.

The fact that a zombie is going on about eating someone and it can be read figuratively is definitely intended on the writers.

I went to look and.... I'm not going to make a fuss of it.

That amount of movement seemed off for the scene considering she was supposedly bitten and needed to be carried, so that's just more suspicious. Which is straight up confirmed afterwards.

This is true, but it helps there that they aren't being provocative with how they frame things. It's probably a you thing if you think so though, even with the literal swimsuit mode in HGH (which yes, that is a thing)

But on the Swastika, where I admittedly looked on the Wikipedia page for a minute, it does have other names (Including old terms for them before swastika was adopted in English) and of course still is used in many of the larger eastern faiths.

Time to await for a response again if I'm in or not.

In the meantime, time to begin the trip to Bose.

Small populations do make me wonder how lost tribes still manage to get around. We can never truly know because contacting them = risk of exposing them to diseases that could wipe them from the face of the Earth. But it's still something to think about. Life finds a way i guess.

On Chapter 6 of Sky SC, seeing Estelle sass the main villains is a magical experience. She truly is a chad.

Also, when you beat the enemies you aren't expected to win against:

Spoiler

?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false

?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false

The truth is, Gilbert underestimated the power of offensive food.

It would have been nice of Joshua to rejoin before this fight, but better late than never. We just learned his tragic backstory, so I can cut him some slack.

Although, I wonder why they brought back Gilbert of all people as an Ouroboros minion. Maybe Falcom just thought it was funny?

It was truly sadistic of Falcom to make a "battle you aren't expected to win" with a time limit, but they couldn't conquer me this time. My second-to-last try had the time limit run out when the last enemy had only a sliver of health left, so I didn't take any chances the last time around.
