The new Final Fantasy XIII trailer features Serah, the younger sister of heroine Lightning and girlfriend of bandana-wearing character Snow. According to some, Serah's character design isn't new.
it actually does look just like her saw of the posts on kotaku tried defending saying its original but really the only difference between them is one has no sleeves and smaller boobs
lol of all things, they mention Bible Black.
I don't think it's kinda out of line to say that Tetsuya Nomura Doesn't read this or is even aware of this. I mean really? a famous character designer basing his stuff off hentai? I'm gonna go with pure coincidence on this one, Nomura's character design style is very distinctive.
Yeah, and I just looked at the pictures and haven't stopped laughing. Actually, pretty sure that character model has been recycled many times in anime and manga. the off-center ponytail in particular.
If I remember from the Japanese trailers, the sister (maybe she died?) was the root of the problems between Snow and Lightning.
Actually, I don't think so. Like 1.3, I think this is a case of pure coincidence. They do say though that "art inspires art". Another good one too, "copy from two people it's plagiarism; copy from three it's art". Both characters probably originate from the same inspiration, but I don't think they're based off one another.
It's not like it was copied or anything there are a ton of anime and game characters that have that hair style. I mean come on there are only say many hair styles one can have people. As for the outfit there are differences and I would chalk the similarities up to pure coincidence. I mean this isn't like Suckerpunch ripping the Reapers straight out of The World Ends With You and putting them into Infamous.
while it's probably just a pure coincidence, Maiku, there's no reason for Nomura not to be in hentai, he's in the land of hentai, so who knows...
i would actually say the only similarity is the hair, skirt and stockings. her top and face aren't that similar. plus, there are much better girls to copy from Bible Black than Imari..
Hahaha i think people read my post wrong. I am saying it IS coincidence. Actually i think one of the volcaloid girls have the same hairstyle, i could be wrong though.
I saw this and had to submit it. I just started laughing, it's so close it's like they did it on purpose.
she looks like my wife... that I wish I had. T_T
I lol'd. Lol she is cute.
what girl are you talking about? Serah? or the Bible black one? cause Serah had a pretty small boobs lol
Hentai cannot be avoided.
She looks cute
I DECLARE COINCIDENCE! *looks at both pictures again* YUP DEFINITELY A COINCIDENCE!
She looks eerie like hentai game
lol she looks like Imari hope she doesn't grow a d1ck like Imari did in Bible Black episode 6
Everyone in this game looks like a damn mannequin or a barbie doll.
So does this confirm Nomura is a Hentai artist or at least watches it? :P
LOL, that's too funny. I was thinking the same exact thing.
I don't see the resemblance. They don't have the same body type, nor do their faces look -anything- alike either. The only thing in common they have are their hairstyles and that generic anime high-school uniform they're wearing. ... Wait, are they being serious? Cause, you know, about 90% of ALL anime characters EVER have dressed (and still do) like that. And that hairstyle isn't exactly "new" or original either... Grasping at straws? Maybe it was a slow news day or something.
