(Disclaimer: This is my first actual thought-out post on the Tumblrs, please bear with me. Sorry if it sucks.)
Okay so I’ve been a long time fan of the Fire Emblem series, it’s one of my all-time favorites. So when FE13 (Awakening) was announced I was super excited.
… Until I saw the official art. Not only is it a huge shift from previous styles (much darker colors, many characters look like they’ve never seen the sun, very tiny eyes, etc.) but the outfits went from “kind of impractical but it’s clear there was at least thought put into this” to “what the fuck are they fighting in and why.” Especially where little Noire here was concerned. It’s clear whoever designed her either had never shot archery or just didn’t care. In previous games, the female archers had guards over their boobs or at least had them covered.
PROTIP- If you’re a girl shooting archery, please be sure that your breasts are covered. The arm holding the bow too. Why?? Because your bowstring can hit you there and it stings and bruises like a motherfucker. (Amazons used to just amputate one breast so that this didn’t happen. they kept one so they could breastfeed their daughters.)
