Nice work, kid.

The irony here is hard to measure. No one would blame you for wanting to play as a character you can relate to. Having empathy is realizing the vast majority of media—games, movies, etc.—are created to satisfy and monetize your desire for self-realization at the expense of many, many other groups.
Let me try to rephrase your comment for you.
"You realize a lot of people just don’t want to play as a male right? Growing up we’re basically shown most leads in action/fantasy films to be male but it’s natural that people want to play as a character like themselves. If there is a problem it goes far beyond videogames. I find it pretty insulting that I would be told I’m calling for censorship just because I want to play as the character I can relate to more."
Well jeez you took a lot of the ones I’d say off the bat!
So I’ll be pretty generous with the punk label, just so I have more to say than like two bands. Uhhh… so please don’t stop thinking I’m cool or whatever but I learned about some of these bands from Japanese manga cartoons.
(pretty punk if you can stand NuMetal screaming) Maximum the Hormone:
I’m sorry the best video I could find for the song is from the Air Master ending, so you have to see that hiiilarious big breasted girl and the mutant pokemon character. But this is not without its benefits: searching for a video on Youtube led me to discover a bunch of awesome cover videos, including one where the drummer plays her own song in DrumMania:
(punk like Devo is punk) Polysics:
(I mean it’s… yeah…) Peelander Z:
(not even a little punk) Laugh and Peace:
Which you might recognize from Vib Ribbon
I guess that was more than I thought I’d have!
I mean it’s not the MOST baby thing ever but it’s still pretty babyish. It’s definitely worse than the Scary Stories to Read in the Dark we compared it to on the podcast.
I don’t want them to plaster over all the cracks, because the cracks are what makes it fun, but I’d like it if the whole thing felt 10% less repetitious.
But I do get pumped.
Tenuous connection between this and Kill la Kill. Both share (different) composers with Attack on Titan. Someone mentioned the KLK and Attack on Titan connection in stream and it sounded familiar to me, I realized later it’s ‘coz I’d looked up who did those sweet woodwinds and found it was the person/group responsible for AoT music.
Special move time-limits are great, but they make me spam attacks a lot. Still, if you chain four special moves over about eight turns of x4 Braves boss battles tend to end before the music does~~~~~~~~~~
