I've always thought twintails were a funny kind of hair style. I mean, they look pretty good in 2D, but whenever they make that dimensional transition to RL they look really fucking atrocious oh my god kill me now terrible. Ponytails, braids and bobs can look regardless of your realm and it's not like I'm being a 3D rejector here. There are some parts of the anime esthétique I dislike, fashion for example. I don't think I've ever seen a manga/anime with good fashion sense, except for Ichigo Mashimaro and that's mostly CLOTHEZ4KIDZ anyway (except Nobue, her sense is ballin'), and it's always hilarious when someone in a manga points out how amazing girl X's 'style' is and she shows up in some sort of kitchy-trash frill abomination and a miniskirt. So I've always wondered if I could make a 2D gender transition and become a cute pink girl with chinabuns hair, would I lose my sense of aesthetics and dress up as the dumpster behind Hot Topic??
But yeah, fuckin' twintails, how do they even work?

Your problem lies in considering 3D. Pure beauty does not exist in 3D.
>> No.29726  
>>29723
But how can pure beauty exist in a realm with no sense of fashion. Seriously, look at that character you're posting. I'm willing to ignore that weird perpetually floaty-hair, but what's up with that two colour double breasted uniform, did she steal it from Two-Face. And what the fuck is going on in the collar area, some sort of nun-sailor meets goth-loli? With a christmas present ribbon on top??? And holy crap is she seriously wearing a pink fanny pack I MEAN GOD DAMN.

When I try to imagine what kind of anime girl I'd like to be I can never decide between small tight loli or short soft busty teen. Twintails are a constant, however.

Well, to be fair, when all you do is take random Jewish NWO conspiracy bullshit and replace every instance of "Jews" with "the FR" you have no right to complain when the Jewish NWO conspiracy nuts take your stuff. They're basically just reverting his work to fit the original source.
Also, according to Garrison, it wasn't social conservatives or anyone, but really a ploy by the evil government to discredit his work!

Looking at it from a design-standpoint and... It's still pretty bad. If you try to ignore the garish fanny pack for a moment and just look at her. I mean, come on, she looks like every anime girl ever. It's like the devs went down some check list like:

'Okay, so we gotta design this character, she's a tsundere.'
'Tsundere... So she has to have twintails right?'
'Yeah! And make 'em blond, make her a little exotic, but not too exotic!'
*draw* *draw*
'Blond, roger... How does this look?'
'Hmm... I think she needs a little more sex appeal, give her some thigh highs, she can be the thigh high character in the game.'
'Like this?'
'Yeah, I'd fuck her. lol'
'We're just going to give her the same uniform as everyone else?'
'Yeah, no way we're making individual outfits, takes too much time.'
'She looks a bit bland though, she could use an accessory, like, a frilly wristband and a pink fanny pack or something?'
'Okay, that sounds like a good idea. Wanna call it a day and play some fighting games or whatever?'
'Sure.'

Searching for 'blond_hair twintails school_uniform thigh_highs' on Gelbooru yields, like, 36 pages of results by the way. So from a fashionista's viewpoint she's terrible, just terrible, and as a character design she's completely forgettable and generic. Sure, she's rendered nicely, I'll give you that. It could be worse, I guess. But seriously, her only defining trait as a design, the only thing that separates her from the rest of the crowd is that atrocious pink fanny pack. Seriously, man.

Wow. Haha, this is funny. You haven't actually played Grisaia, have you?

You haven't given any reason for anything actually being wrong with the uniform or the fanny pack, instead focusing on ranting about how generic her hair style, hair color and thigh highs are...

...when those are PRECISELY INTENDED TO BE GENERIC. In the story, Michiru intentionally tries to act like a tsundere. Her blond hair is not her natural color, and there's an extensive comedy scene about the pains she has to go through to get it typical tsundere blond. Same for the hairstyle; she has twintails because a tsundere is supposed to have twintails. The thigh highs haven't been touched upon explicitly in the demo (waiting for the rest of the translation), but no doubt she's also only wearing those to come off as a more convincing typical tsundere character.

By the way, each character also has at least one casual outfit in addition to their uniform.

>You haven't actually played Grisaia, have you?
Why would I.
>INTENDED TO BE GENERIC
Oh, oh! I'm getting a brainwave from the Grisaia dev room here:

dev-san: This design isn't working, she looks a lot like Mafuyu from Kanojo x Kanojo x Kanojo, Yami from ToLoveRu and also a million other characters.
dev-kun: But they don't have pink fanny packs!
dev-san: I don't think that's good enough.
dev-chan: I have an idea! What if we write her, like, she wants to become a generic tsundere!
dev-san: What do you mean?
dev-chan: I mean, she intentionally dresses to become a tsundere, and also acts like one, for some unexplained reason.
dev-kun: And that unexplained reason could later be explained, and turn into forced drama! I like it!
dev-san: But what about the pink fanny pack. What's with the pink fanny pack.
dev-chan: I 'onno.
*dev-san sighs*
dev-san: Okay, whatever. I'll go talk to the scenario writer.
dev-chan: Yay!

>>29750
Oh look, it's Hot Topic dumpster-chan and... Actually, I'll admit that that shirt is kinda sweet, the pink fanny pack ruins the whole thing though.
And, okay, fine, I'll explain why I think the pink fanny pack is super dumb. Like I implied earlier, I think the pink fanny pack was just added on top of an existing design to make it specialer, which is always a really stupid idea. You gotta have a core idea and then design around that. That's the basic principle of good design. By just dumping everything you think 'mite B cool' on a mannequin you'll get retarded shit like pic related.
Just try looking at Luso, it's hard to decide what to focus on because he has accessories EVERYWHERE, so your eyes are being pulled around all over the place and it's kind of uncomfy. That's what's happening with the twintail girl too (though it's not even close to the clusterfuck that is Luso), your eyes would normally move to her head-shoulder area, because that's where the two main visual anchors are, her bright hair and the red ribbon, but the pink fanny pack pull you down because it's so bright and contrasts with the colour of the uniform.

And here's Luso again, he was re-designed for his appearance in the PSP port of FFT. I think they did a pretty great job with salvaging his design and it's a good example of how less really can be a lot more.
They removed a bunch of pointless accessories, shrunk others down, his colour scheme is a lot duller and finally they accentuated the reds. If you look at him now, your will probably be drawn towards the chest area, and then move up to the beret, and after spending some time there you'll explore the rest of his design. There's a clear path laid out for your eye to follow and it's not nearly as confusing as his DS debut. It's still a bit clusterfucky though, but I guess the devs had to make a couple of compromises with the design so that he'd still be recognizable as Luso.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you really want your character to have a god damn fanny pack (<--really bad idea), at least give it a neutral colour that jams with the rest of the design instead of a glaring hot pink.

Twintails can work on Japanese girls below the age of 20, but that doesn't count 'cause Japanese girls below the age of 20 are magic. There are also other isolated cases where twintails work, but they don't count either, 'cause they are also magic.

Extra points for choosing atrocious over the top character designs for your images.
Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
