This is a thread for us dedicated and not-so-dedicated fans to express our collective praise and criticisms for the v3/4 Emi sprites. I think it needs its own thread because it seems like even though everyone has chipped in on what they like and don't like about the sprites, there doesn't appear to be a real consensus as to how drastically they should be changed. That may just be my personal bias though, since I'm in favor of making only minor changes, but we'll see.
Here's a copy+paste of my criticism from the feedback thread:
I'm not sure how I would react if the sketchiness were done away with completely like so many people seem to be implying, since I love the art style despite its flaws. It feels like the sketchiness is part of her character, and part of what makes her unique. Sure, hugging her might produce a few paper cuts, but it'd be like hugging a cute little porcupine and totally worth it~For Emi's sprites, the sketchiness doesn't bother me now that I've seen her sprites in action. For the most part I like them as they are even alongside the other sprites such as Rin's; I think it makes her stand out in a good way. Some sprites have sketchier eyelashes than others however, like the ones where her eyes are closed. I think those particular sprites should have denser eyelashes to be more consistent.
Also, I really don't like her mouth when it looks like some kinda hot dog or bean or whatever. This includes her intro CG and when Hisao keels over; in the latter she doesn't seem genuinely worried. Someone mentioned she looks "sarcastic" and I'd agree; I think in these sprites and in the CG she should be frowning or at least have a more obviously shocked expression. Overall however I love the changes to her sprites; the improvements have allowed me to appreciate her character more.
