      These retards don't even know what anime is. They like the most anime JRPGs like chrono trigger or persona 5 but any JRPGs they don't like they say is too anime, even if it is far less so than the ones they like. I guess it's too easy to blame a medium they know literally nothing about everything they don't like.

              >with all the nonsense plot twists and goofy character designs
              This is what I mean, retards think Final fantasy 10 is "anime" and older simpler Jrpgs like FF 6 aren't, when it's literally the fucking opposite, when you have fucking toriyama doing the character designs for shit like chrono trigger and the plots are as simple as any shounen today in older JRPGs. I don't know where you gays even get the idea that ridiculous JRPG plots come from anime when most have the simplest plots.

                Oh, you thought I had a problem with the artstyle or graphical choices? My friend, put those thoughts to rest. My hate of anime games comes from the obnoxious and forced writing, that often turns them into glorified visual novels. If they had zero cutscenes, no voice acting and very little dialogue, I'd be glad to consider them good games.

                Or could it be you care more about the "cinematic experience" than the gameplay? No need to answer that question, everyone already knows due to being used to years of westoid hypocrisy.

    The DioField Chronicles and Valkyrie Elysium are both releasing in 2 weeks, XB3 leans harder on old school sci-fi anime tropes than it does the ones more similar to generic harem ones in XB2, and SMTV.

    I was thinking about buying this when it comes to steam, but then I looked at a youtube playthrough. I don't understand how anyone could bear the voice acting or the dry as a bone dialogue and plot.

      literally nothing about this is what I was asking. I don't care that they exist, I just wanted some more grounded jrpgs without some of the modern anime trappings. It's not some political statement man.

        That’s cool and I respect that opinion, but in what way is

        interpreted as telling you to make a political statement?

        whomever said that is a retarded moron gay whose taste is absolutely subhuman and should not be listened to even if he said that the sea is salty
        motherfuckers would say "4 guys in a row is too slow!" and then go play grid-based garbage where you spend 10 minutes to just get to your enemy
