Emis and Yuukos

Post by Oddball » Thu Jun 13, 2013 6:29 pm

Well, I made a topic about the older Lilly design, so why not bring back the Emi and Yuuko designs and talk about them as well?

Image

Frankly, I think these are both huge improvements. I can't Emi seriously as a love interest if she looks like she's 8. She still looks youthful in the final design, but not necessarily under-aged like her original style. Also, I really don't like how hr face was done. She doesn't look like she has a nose.


Original Yuuko on the other hand has a decent design. ... However, it doesn't fit her. When I first played the demo, I thought she was another student. I couldn't help wonder what her backstory was and why she'd have to work in the school. Was she filling in for family or what? I was actually wondering how to get on her path.

Also, the two versions of Yuuko look practically nothing alike. The other Emi still looks like Emi, but the two Yuukos don't even look like they're related to each other.

So, what all are your thoughts and opinions on the changes?

I really like the old designs, except for Emi's head. It's too round and she has no nose. :lol:

I don't really like the old designs at all. Seems like they were drawn with the sole intention of being cute, rather than having character imo.

I actually really like the old Yuuko, surprisingly; on the whole I don't like the older designs, especially Emi's and Lilly's. They both just look way too young, and like the personality they actually have wouldn't fit them quite right. This Emi looks like she's about 4, and that's saying something considering how young Emi looks in the first place.

I like the older "yukko" (I forgot how to spell her name) is better then the new one, she seams more cute. The new Emi is way better. Maybe Yuuko (different spelling) changed her appearance after she broke up with you know who.

Old Emi isn't too great. Old Yuuko's cute but the final design fits her character much better.

Not that fond of old Emi. But old Yuuko is quite nice. She looks like she has her act together. I could see current Yuuko looking like this in a few year. Maybe after she graduates.

Yeah, I could see future Yuuko looking like that. Once she drops the stress and gets some style. :lol:

I really don't like the old version of Emi. She looks too young, and just lacks the personality that the later version has. She feels bland to me, despite the fact that Emi as we know her seems to be a relatively common character design in other anime (Maka Albarn from Soul-Eater springs to mind).

I don't dislike the old version of Yuuko, but I prefer the current one.

Y'all should have seen the shitstorm when the new design for Emi was introduced^^°
You can probably still find it if you dig deep enough...

Why would there be a shitstorm? Even granting some may have preferred her older design...A shitstorm? "OH MY GOD, YOU...ALTERED HER DESIGN SLIGHTLY BUT STILL KEPT IT MOSTLY THE SAME! HOW DARE YOU!" O.o;;

Time to do some digging. :lol: Though I do wonder why it was changed if it was apparently such a popular thing...

I still love the announcement on the dev blog of the Emi redesign. "We upgraded your loli." :lol:
Anyway, I gotta agree on Emi's looks. Old Emi looks even younger if you just look at her face. (She actually seems to have more of a figure than New Emi, weirdly enough. Or maybe her blouse is just more form-fitting.)
And yeah, the Yuukos don't even look like the same character. But hey, cute, bespectacled, redhead librarians are fine by me, regardless of details. (Sorta wish they'd kept the old glasses, though.)
