You play with some really lenient DMs. One guy threw a tentacle monster at a sorceress in one of my parties because she wouldn't get off the phone.

>> No.24878324

You seem to be making the assumption that the point of "this is how" is to provide a visual anchor for a character concept, as opposed to a behavioural one.

Androgyny is evident as part of the character design, and it may seem a fairly visually generic to it's medium in the eyes of the uninitiated i.e; me and you, the design is, as evidenced by recognition, here for example >>24878188 at least distinct enough to warrant recognition from those familliar with the work itself.

However, I do agree that much of modern Anime character design seems to lack variation (perhaps due to set "character archetypes" becoming common to the genre, from which paralels might be drawn with Noh theater), but It's evidently not a problem for people who consume this sort of media to tell one character from another.

what is and is not Iconic is relative to what media you consume, it's pretty clear youy don't consume anime, so would you be able to identify an icnic character if you saw one, beyond the most banally well known?

In any case, if we were limited merely to universally iconic characters then we'd just be flooded with pictures of Batman and James Bond, which doesn't sound like very much fun at all.

As a bigtime old-school Anime fan I'll grant you that the 90's was probably the heyday of Anime as a medium (not a genre), but there've been a handful of shows produced since the millenium that are well worth watching.

Fullmetal Alchemist is pretty damn well known, but is a prime example of something that is well known because it's genuinely rather good.
