  2. The girls look gorgeous. I don’t care if it’s full-on yuri or just yurobait I just think the girls are cute beyond belief. Now here’s my question. Should I buy this game? I like Persona. Is this game like Persona?

  4. I only like yuri when there’s height difference involved. Even then I don’t even like "yuri" just "two women being radically different heights". Yuri sucks honestly baffled anyone over the age of 13 enjoys it.

  5. >“I think focusing on fan service and making it the main aspect [of games and anime] is really starting to change,” he tells me. “Not just myself, but the dev team are really feeling that. Compared to the first game, we’re taking a different approach in terms of showing how appealing these characters are without having to rely on fan service. For Blue Reflection and other titles I’ve worked on, I’m seeing a change in how things are being perceived and the attitudes towards them. If you asked me, ‘Well, you’ve drawn a lot of sexy illustrations’ I would have to say that it isn’t because I like or dislike them, it’s that I’m creating things that fans and consumers enjoy looking at.”

      A charitable interpretation would be that they’re still doing fanservice, but not leaning so much on that alone.
      Of course they could have just cut it all out and now trying to soften the blow.

        • Kishida Mel is either being disingenuous as fuck or he’s trying to avoid acknowledging his past self and actions when promoting his new game in the contemporary media climate.
          Again, I’ve seen ZERO video game websites call him out for the shit he admitted to in 2017.

  6. No. From Mel Kishida:

    >僕は海外のファンの間での風潮というより、日本と日本から見た海外の風潮として、十代の少女に対する性的表現についての考え方の変化について返答しました。また、僕自身も今まで通りではいけないと思っています。

    "I responded about the changing attitudes toward sexual expression towards teenage girls, not so much as a trend among overseas fans, but as a trend in Japan and from Japan’s perspective of trends abroad. I also believe that things can’t continue as they have been."

      • Kishida-san can see attitudes changing for the better, but I suppose he’s right – there is demand for characters and illustrations like this, so he’d be foolish to ignore these requests and prevent himself from making a living. Games and anime from Japan can be some of the finest pieces of art in the modern world, yet they’re also dragged down by weird, gratuitous experiences that can often feel juvenile. Blue Reflection: Second Light thankfully doesn’t fall into that camp.

      • Japan is a country with an awfully strict working culture, and to me it feels like Kishida-san is tapping into the freedom and creativity that accompanies school life, and how it represents some of the only years young people can be themselves and pursue interests that will stick with them forever. It’s poetic, and isn’t the first time I’ve seen the Japanese high school experience being romanticized in such a way.

      • The new interview with Kishida Mel sure doesn’t bring up how the dude was literally a judge for a teenage beauty contest where he asked the girls about traumatic experiences for the first game – nor how he held "school girl fetish meetings" with his staff.
        On the contrary, it frames him as someone who doesn’t fetishize school girls and it also has him basically lie to our faces by saying they weren’t trying to sexualize the girls in the first game. The game where they made shirts go wet and see-through in the first 15 minutes.

      >僕自身の絵の表現として、これから描いていく絵は現代のモラルの考え方と無関係ではいられないよねって話をしたつもりです!

      "As an expression of my own painting, I think I told you that the pictures I’m going to draw have nothing to do with modern moral thinking!"

      • It’s a double negative that’s why the MTL got it wrong. He is saying it can’t have no relationship to his reflections on modern morals.

  7. The early purchase bonus lasts for two weeks, so I probably won’t be getting it at launch so I can see what first impressions of the English version are like.
