To just have fun is disingenuous and ignorant in my mind. We are people with critical minds and the ability to analyze.So this thread went places while I was grinding Blitz on granblue versus all day yesterday alright (got 100 draw tickets at the end of it, woo~).
So, lets try to see why the argument doesn't make sense.
One side says Uzaki is mentally too immature to be as hot as people see her as. Meaning, mental maturity is what defines whether you're adult or not, even if your body is hot if you're like Robin Williams in that one film, that's still being a child.
Ok, got it.
So why, then, if Tatsumaki is 28 mentally, and she very much is that, is it bad that her body looks young? Are midgets also supposed to be eternal virgins because they will never grow tall?
This is the issue with this argument people have. You have the one side (lets call it the kittie side for no reason whatsoever!) where it's all about the mentality, then once you go on to adhere to that side you have the other side which just focuses on the body of the character.
The problem is, you, the body people, you are NOT coming to our defense when a char with a mature body is being maligned. You sit in silence, like a judgy ninja, waiting for the chance where a counterpoint to the kittie side is made, and you pounce at the 28 year old that just appearance-wise looks young.
So...which is it? Aren't people only into it for the boobs? If so why would they even like Tatsumaki? Are they...maybe not just into it for the boobs? So then, why would they like Uzaki? Do you see how this doesn't make sense? There's a fundamental contradiction with this logic. The answer is that both judgy groups are totally wrong in their assessments in general.
I deem such a state of affairs as one that is in bad faith. The right course of action is to wholly ignore all this and just have fun.
(also, to clarify, the best part about Tatsumaki is not her looks, it's her voice, she is voiced by Aoi Yuuki, she also does Futaba in p5 and Madoka and a bunch of awesome chars)
The main nuance missing in this is the question of intent. Characters, as i stated, aren't born fully formed from the ether. They are made by human hands for a purpose or reason. While yes, it is presumptuous of me and others to assume absolute malice in the purpose of Tatsumaki's and Uzaki's creation, to just narrow the argument people have to "body or mind" inherently misses the rest of the arguments made about what the author intended with the designs or personality.
Intent is the issue, not just simply the body or the mind
