>>101745114>I just don't see what the big deal is. It's for little children, so why do the characters need to appeal to adult sexuality?
Ok, that's a better question. Time for a rant.
You know what appealed to kids' mass market? The original She-Ra and He-Man cartoon.
She-Ra looked like a confident grown-ass woman who could rock a skirt, wear make-up and look like a bombshell, sometimes she even flirted, in addition to being a badass, reliable rebel leader.
He-Man - and even Bow - looked like a reliable guy ready fpor action and to fight the good fight.
Fortunately, that was before the 90s XTREEEME anti-hero invasion, so they were all good role models. Kids wanted to play those characters, maybe even be like them. They were characters you could look up to. Not 100% sure these days, but I still think they're more popular models than most kid characters and definitely more than some hipster-looking soii-teens dealing with growing pains and relationshit drama or whatever these new style cartoons are trying to sell as story.
Besides, that arght style looks like they're somewhat trying to emulate studio Ghibli's style, which is the definition of boring, except for monsters. It's not about sexualization, it doesn't look too appealing to begin with.
