No, these threads are more retarded than edition wars. It essentially devolves into faggots like you going "hurf durf wear platemails" without taking the context of the setting into consideration. Not to mention 90% of the settings you "discuss" contain magic which instantly destroys any credibility to your arguments since any fucker caught wearing thick armor can just get fireballs chucked at their feet till they pass out from heat exhaustion.

You know, while Ichiban Ushiro Daimaou was a clusterfuck of a series, I liked the hero, and Hattori was a good choice for a love interest. Much better than the slightly retarded redhead.

The only thing that I felt was out of place was the twisted-rope underwear. She really should've just worn panties instead.

>> No.16130811

Because that is her advanced arm, the most probable target, also most enemies are right handed and will hit from right to left, thus the left side is more armoured (this is actually true for jousting harnesses irl) but most of all is the contemporary aesthetic that asks for leather bracelets and asymmetry.

Still the least stupid thing you could whine about in all this threads.

>> No.16130823

Just felt I should once again point out, for all the herpa derpa praktikool posters in this thread, not all cultures (current, historical or indeed fictional) see practicality as the most important thing during battle.

The fact of the matter is that we are more likely to accept two men deliberately disrobing to fight in bare feet than a woman fighting in steel high heels.

Practicality is very rarely a concern outside of first and developing world military structures. In fact, historically, MORALE and DISCIPLINE was more important BY FAR than practicality in garb, for a great many hundreds of years.

>>16130475 without taking the context of the setting into consideration.

This poster has the right idea, but even if the setting doesn't explain away silly costumes - the CULTURE most certainly does, and always will.

And you know what, if a culture features beautiful teenage girls inhibiting their combat prowess with outlandish sexy outfits, I honestly don't mind.

Let'S list some actual reasons for her not to own armour:

- Price. Armour is fucking expensive
- Practicallity. She's usually a bodyguard to people who are moving around a lot. Do you really want to carry those extra five or six kilogramms for no apparent gain?
- Legality. She's operating in a pseudo-japanese/chinese realm. It could very well be that various peacekeeping laws make it plain illegal for her to own armour.

>> No.16133473

Maybe, if it's a challenge to the death, you aren't getting any. Either she kills you, nearly kills you, or she dies.
Let's see:
She kills you: obviously impossible to get it up, when you have no pulse.
Nearly kills you: you aren't manly enough
She dies: I suppose you could fuck her....but ew.

Just because someone's wearing regular clothing, it doesn't mean they aren't wearing armor. In Europe, once armor started to be unfashionable, it was reasonably common to wear jack-of-plates, plate-sleeves, hidden cuirasses (see pic), capelines and other sorts of concealed armor under your uniform or regular clothing.

This had the added benefit of tricking your enemy into making useless attacks that, if your armor was visible, he might not have made.
