  3. I've always found it amusing when someone says that this game is too "anime".

Saying stuff like "Oh well the characters are just cliche anime chars" (Probably without reading the supports too) or saying stuff like "I don't like the way the series is going. Seems to Japanese" while ignoring the absurdly obvious fact that Fire Emblem IS a Japanese game series. The characters are about as "anime" cliched as the FE1-12 characters are. The art style is as Japanese as FE1-12 are. If you can't see that, then I advise you to take the nostalgia goggles off if it hasn't been already welded to your forehead.

Meh, it all draws from the same well.

With that Japanese-y DLC coming out, I wonder if they are going a little too far with it. It doesn't seem to fit, but I reserve judgement.

He must have used the dimensional gates.

Have to laugh at supports defusing the anime archetype though. Or TC really not understanding what it means when something is "too Japanese." People are fully aware the game is made in Japan.

Considering Japan is their largest FE audience I would say they aren't going too far at all since they know their intended audience loves this stuff.

I meant from their setting, not their ability to make money.

You can also put Eltosian up there with Camus. Also Zeke.

And what does the setting in FE Awakening have anything to do with Japan? The closest thing they have is a certain girl from an island that seems like the FE version of Japan.

Zeke is Camus after he lost his memory but Elthsan also is a char shout out along with Aless still the point is Fire Emblem is heavily influenced by anime in art style and character development since day 1

So, does that mean that IS is just embracing the trend even more, or just that people are catching on?

With stuff like the swimsuit DLC, hard to tell. Would IS have done it before if they could?
