Any reason as to why Emi's cuffs are different?

Post by G3n0c1de » Wed Jun 24, 2009 2:18 am

First off, I'm sorry if this has already been discussed a billion times or the devs already know about it and stuff. Anyway, while playing through the game, I noticed that on Emi's school uniform, her cuffs are a bit different from everyone else. They seem to have a gold border or something. I don't know if this is intentional, but it wasn't discussed in game or on the forums to my knowledge. I'm not sure I'm actually complaining, I think it looks okay, but for continuity's sake it is a bit out of place. (Moved this thread from the support forums to here as this isn't a technical issue, really.)

Heh, I'd bet that Shizune probably wants a pair for herself... Gah, I just got an idea for a pic of Shizune wearing an 18th century general's outfit. Essentially dress her up as Napoleon... and then she could play risk too. Partially inspired by that pic on the shimmie.

Blimey! First time I notice that! Good eye, I say.
I can't remember but, wasn't Emi from a lower grade compared to the rest of the girls? If that was the case, maybe that's how the uniform is? I've personally seen schools where the girls need to get a different colored uniform depending on the year they are in, so probably that's the case here.... or it was an error from the devs part :P

it's been stated multiple times that they're all seniors pay attention


And I've already established that it's because Emi is sugoi =*^_^*=

Hmm, never thought of that. I suppose that I assumed that they were all seniors. Well, we know Hisao, Hanako, Misha, Shizune, Lilly, Kenji and Lelouch are. But I don't remember learning what rooms Emi and Rin report to. It is still possible that they are seniors but it is never really brought up. And yes, its true that some schools have minor changes in uniform between the grades. But I have to say, that if the seniors don't get officer's cuffs and the underclassmen do these are sad times we live in.

Edit: Ah, I see Caesius has beaten me to the punch, but thank you for clearing that up.

I believe Aura said that not only were there different writers working on each girls path, but different artist working on each girl's sprites.

This may just be a result of that.

[badhumor] Or maybe it's to draw your eyes to the limbs that are there as opposed to limbs that are... not fully there. :P. [/badhumor]

It's just one of the modifications allowed to the uniform, almost all of them have different cuffs.
Let's just say Emi's the only one bold enough to go for a stripe.

Maybe it glows in the dark so she's easier to spot, or it reflects the headlights of cars so she doesn't get knocked down. She is very small.
