Hey, you! Yeah, you!
Did YOU have hope for Mega Man Legends 3?
Abandon it. Now.
This is pitiful. It's almost like being asked which body part I'd rather be shot in. None of the designs really "fit" the Legends universe, three of them barely look like girls, three of them are indescribably bland, and three of them... Still don't fit the Legends universe, but actually look damn decent.
If anyone's wondering, from best to worst, my opinions are...
Setsugu's design comes closest to actually being a Legends character, all things considered. Higurashi's does, too, though it borders on the outlandish... As does Komaki's, which looks like it belongs in a Battle Network game. Oh hey, didn't Komaki work on the Battle Network games? Fancy that... (I gots to know, though: What is up with the sleeves? No, no, I follow Touhou, I can dig detatched sleeves, but detatched sleeves with zippers? The fuck you thinking, man...?)
Ishikawa rounds out the "bland" with a completely nondescript girl in an absurd dress. Kaji's in this bracket only because his girl has a Metool hat. Also, because it looks like a girl. Nakayama's offering looks like a Zero character. Oh hey, didn't Nakayama work on the Zero games? Fancy that...
These three designs hurt to look at, they hurt to consider, they hurt to put into any order of quality, because they have none. I am not surprised Inafune is here. I AM surprised that he is not the worst. Inafune apparently didn't get the memo that this was for HEROINES, or else has forgotten what a female human being looks like. In either case, he did what he always does: He drew Zero. Didn't he try to replace X as the protagonist with Zero? Fancy that...
Yoshikawa's design is at the top of this bracket, in seventh place, not because it is actually BETTER than the other two below it, but because, of the remaining three, he at least tried to make a decent design. It's absurd, outlandish and utterly ridiclous; Never mind that it looks like a goddamned Yu-Gi-Oh filler arc opponent, but it at least tries harder than the other two.
As for Itou... Itou's design is going to give me nightmares: Unnaturally skinny, is freakishly curves outwards near the waist, in what I'm sure he intended to be hips, but looks more like she's one of those inflatable clown punching bags that grew legs- Note how her thighs do not betray anything in the form of buttocks whatsoever. There's having a flat ass, and then there's forgetting about anything called an ass. And yeah, it hurts to know that I consider this thing worse than Inafune's design, but wow. Also, he worked on Megaman 5, 6, and 7. At least, now I know there's a name for my pain...
Yeah, I just... Yeah.
Legends fans, you've been asking for it for ten years.
And by god, you're gonna get it...
