>>3645966>just look at 90% of Itto's fanarts up to now for a good example
I had hoped that implication passed through via undercurrents as it were since the beginning of this thread is lacking nothing in art depicting Itto quite remote from how he is actually supposed to look just to appease himbo fans.>no need to bring up Mihoyo's terrible writing to bash on a character
Heaven knows I'm not one bit elated by how Gorou turned out, but that anon spoke of bits of lore that supposedly make him likable even though beyond his conduct during Sangonomiya arc he has absolutely nothing to him beyond standard hearsay that praises his loyalty and on-field tactician's prowess. It is subjective of course but to my mind all wanes in the face of moronic, subservient complacency that costs lives.>some npcs from sidequests would be more popular than half of the playable characters
I fail to see how this is a relevant point or even a point at all when there are, in fact, several playable characters with less complexity and background to them than side quest npcs.
The original point was that if trap artists, the "lowest common denominator", "latched" onto the character, he would be "ruined" since those artists supposedly unanimously strip randomly chosen characters of every trait besides the clearly defined trap trait, somehow "tainting" them beyond repair and then even managing to "discard" them, as if once someone moves forward all previous work and goodwill is summarily expunged. Whether any one of those notions is anywhere close to reality or not is up for discussion but that anon is a hypocritical nigger with no right to complain about anything of the sort anyhow since he himself eagerly strips the character he latched onto of traits he finds unpleasant or potentially has made no research at all and is judging based on appearance alone, hence his fear of the general trend veering into territory that will not appeal to his tastes.
