To all Otome Fans: Would you date this Character?

#1 Post by Xent » Sat Jan 11, 2014 4:54 pm

The topic pretty much says it all.

Do you like this kind of characters for you dating sim or do you rather prefer something more anime-ish maybe more like this:

Yes, I'd date them both! I think the top one is more fitting of a high fantasy while the bottom is more standard otome fare. Either way, each style has their own charm!

One look and my body lost it. Uh, the answer is yes, I would date them.
If they are tsundre... well I won't get into that. But yes.

I think both could be perfect for a dating game. They both would work well in a game, depending on the setting and such. Like Hazel-Bun noted, the top fellow would probably be great in a fantasy setting comparatively to the lower one, who looks like he might better fit something militaristic or schoolish.

I like either as long as they're interesting personality wise. 8D If you're asking about art style, though, I prefer the top one, but that's just my general preference. It has nothing to do with otome games-- I just like the way it looks.

Really, either style would work in an otome game.

Yup it was more a question about the art style.

Both guys I would date. The styles are both great but personally I think the first style looks slightly more western, while the second style looks like a professional Japanese otome game. I honestly think the second would be much better suited for an otome game and just looks much more polished, but that might just be me haha.

Whether I would date them would deoend on their personalities and if they treated me well and with respect.

Now if you are asking if I find the art attractive (which is different than if I'd date them), both art is attractive.

I would definitely go for the first one, at least artwise. I like the more subdued look. But, the second definitely is more of a standard otome game style. (However, I am very choosy about my pretty boys, so xD)

I don't think I need to say much? The first one has a better look in my opinion. You know, it would be nice to have an otome game with that style, not something too familiar. -blink- About dating them or not...They are fictional characters...Haha. Well, the better question is would you play their route, etc. Hmmm...may be, depend on personalities and interactions between the characters I guess?

Let's start with the fact that if people want to date someone just because of looks, then he definitely has a problem. In visual novels is critical.

I was going something similar too this as well, but then Xent posted this.

If anything else, the creator needs too rephrase the title name.

Admittedly, they have that generic handsome man with a cold personality look on them. Would not date.
(Even if green hair is pretty cute.)
Much Appreciated for those who took the Survey!

I think both art styles are very appealing :>. Either one would work very well in an otome game (in my opinion at least).

Both! The art is done well for both, so I see no problems there. I don't mind what the sprites look like as long as they cohere with the backgrounds. It'd look rather jarring otherwise.

The first is winning me over with his colour scheme (especially the silver hair) and detailed outfit. The second for his glasses and sword. So I really can't decide!
