The cutesy-pervert market is HUGE in Japan.

For Takara, it's a sound business decision.

Money > Integrity

Honesty can't pay the mortgage, blackmail state officials or slip cash into the hand of extortionately expensive high class prostitutes.

Okay...I thought folks were over exaggerating the "tongue = cock" comments...until page three. I mean...wow...um...that design can't be coincidental, can it?

But hey, I like topless 10 year olds just much as the next Tran-fan, so I totally see how they thought this would be a good idea.

(by the way, that last comment was just a joke...I'm sorry I had to point out it's a joke but, you know...better to be safe than sorry)

Not seeing porn but that "heroine changes shape and loses clothes" gig really isn't going to go down well in middle America.

She Ra?
Wonder Woman? (tenuous)

Nothing goes down well in middle America. I'm increasingly convinced that their only purpose is as a social control group in ye grand morality experiment. Something for the rest of the world to gauge themselves against...

Well, that's bad, too.

I was just taking more offense to being told that the only purpose of me, my family, and my friends is to be a litmus test for the rest of the world. Funny that.

That's what we get for living in fly-over land, I guess.

Nah, was thinking more about animation for kids that involve the characters being naked as they change costume / use powers -- unsurprisingly, they're cut when brought over to countries that don't have nudity in soap operas and daytime advertising.

America springs to mind as worse than us in this regard because of the last documentary on plastic surgery I saw -- apparently it's fine to show breasts, and breasts being peeled back and fat sucked out of them, but nipples have to be pixelated. This was teatime TV.

Wonder Woman was more bondage, and... um, are you sure what you were watching was She-Ra?

I meant it more as a parodying of general conceptions. From now on, I no longer use humour. Ever.

Chick gets superpowers and becomes more scantily clad? I don't ****ing know, I can barely remember yesterday...

I read a great column (well, it started off great then just descended into irrelavance and stuttered out without much of a conclusion) by Steven Wells (formerly off of the NME) on the Guardian website about cheerleaders a while back... based on the experience of a British psychologist trying to get her head around the whole notion... I'll dig it out if I remember long enough...

She Ra? Not exactly what I would call 'Hentai' material, honestly. This image is more 'modern' and somewhat more stylized. Originally, she wore a knee length simple white skirt.

Don't recall mentioning hentai. If I did, feel free to show me where. I just responded to the "loses clothes" aspect. I may be misremembering, though... but I'm sure part of the "secret identity" thing usually involves a costume change.

Found it. Would it be so hard for them to actually list all their actual columnists under the "columnists" filter in their search results? Good grief.
http://sport.guardian.co.uk/american...731412,00.html

I can't remember exactly how that was relevant... it may have been loosely connected to my point, I'm not sure. I'm lucky if I can make it through a complete thought these days. Something about hypocrisy in sexualisation of girls in American culture or someother... I don't know.

I'm sure, but it just gets old.

And, parodying general conceptions or not, it's kind of perpetuating this stereotype of my home. (maybe I a little overly sensitive to it because I'm still remembering the civil "debates" going on a couple years ago during our most recent election)

Anywho, back to the subject at hand....

But we're not talking about a change of clothes. That little girl ends up naked when she forms with Autolooper. (and the other girl who looks like she's been vomited up...or perhaps just licked (eww) is also naked.)

So, when he said "loses clothes" he really meant she loses them, not just change them.
