  1. This is me after watching the Shantae 5 trailer, then immediately learning she's 16


    1. PublicEnemy1


      I don't know WHY the devs are making her that young if they're just going to lewd her in the first five seconds of the trailer.

      Welcome to Wayforward.


      @SenEDDtor Missile

      > Yeah. And the franchise is a western property?

      Japanese consent laws influencing their work again? (IIRC their age is a bit lower).

    4. Wraith


      Shantae is not a japanese character

      Oh, nevermind then. I thought it was Japanese for some reason.

      nerds horny

      Well, the animation WAS done by Studio Trigger, but WayForward OK'd it.

      This is fucking with me really hard. I mean in one of the games she's wearing a more revealing slave Leia outfit, and then there's the crawling animation from 1/2 Genie hero.... I don't feel comfortable playing this series anymore.

      @SenEDDtor Missile For the record the consent law in Japan is 13

      @PublicEnemy1 It's so fucking wrong the opening focuses on her boobs and crotch/waist.

      It funny how this is popping up again but not to this sort of level to me

    10. PublicEnemy1


      I mean, this COULD be a game where it takes place in two years in the future. Still weird.

    11. Polkadi~☆


      I'm genuinely curious why that does not concern me at all.

      I guess part of it is that she belly dances, so I just go "sounds about right."


      Also, the age of consent in Japan is 16. The laws say 13, but every prefecture said "fuck that," and raised it in their local laws.

      I assumed due to being a genie is the typical "oh yeah she's older than she looks" thing but wow.

    13. JosepHenry


      @Polkadi~☆that doesn't concern me at all either and is weird cuz I hate that kind of shit... but I give Shantae a pass cuz... reasons I guess. I dunno why. Maybe I am just used to people sexualizing minors like highschoolers to death that when I see Shantae... this is fine in comparison I guess.

    14. PublicEnemy1


      I'm not accusing all of them being perverts. Hell, Shantae herself was made by series creator Matt Bozon's wife.

    15. JosepHenry


      yeah maybe that's why I give it a pass? Shantae herself is well taken care by her creators and the backstory of her creatiom is pretty cool. But things would be much comfortable if she was around 20. I don't see why they couldn't change that up.

      FBI, OPEN UP



      This really feels like a situation that whoever was responsible for doing a certain job picked arguably the absolute worst option possible.

    17. Sean


      I enjoy the series and I really love its art style and characters designs (some aspects of my art are influenced by Bozon's style lol) but I think it's fair if people don't like it. I elect to ignore Shantae's age since it's never mentioned in the games themselves, like how Yoko is SUPPOSEDLY 14 yet this is never once mentioned in TTGL so I just pretend that isn't the case.
