B-Baka! You weren't supposed to see that! W-Who told you you were allowed to reply so fast!? I edited it, you know! Baka! Baka baka baka!

I did... kind of... reply to this in the edit I made before I closed up shop for the day that it looks like neither of you guys saw, but even then, I think we'll still disagree, so I'll just go again here - though first I apologize for misunderstanding? But between "the guy who only thinks women with enormous boobs are valuable." and stuff you've said before, while maybe "vendetta" was absolutely the wrong word, it did kinda look like you've got that against him. 'pologies for my misunderstanding, but that + no sleep + being exhausted is where I was coming from this mornin'.

Yeah, with this, I think the problem is that its aesthetic isn't really part of the picture. In Japan, something being "anime" isn't really considered unique. While it may be that there aren't a lot of non-boob anime games with similar gameplay, the aesthetic in general is all over the place
, so if they haven't happened to have lined up like that before, I don't know if that's something people have paid attention to.
Also, I only recently found out about this, but Taka's actually been writing a manga based on the series since just before the games even started. Like, himself writing it, even though he doesn't write the games personally, which is pretty interesting. I have to wonder if there's a story there, especially since the manga was coming out first and the manga he writes is ongoing to this day, but I dunno.
In that respect, a girls-stripping-action manga, even with
giant breasts, is... actually not even remotely unique. If that's where he was coming from, it almost makes me wonder if at least part
of the intent was more "here's this cool thing in manga they're doing lately, let's make it into a game since there's not one like it yet" or something.
I mean Freezing's artist alone has released like... over half a dozen of the damn things, and they're hardly the only ones.
I guess what my point basically is is that while it is to us filthy Western scum, over there, especially considering, remember, they weren't even considering localizing the series until the West showed their support after SV came out, anime art style isn't some amazing unique thing - the opposite is, if anything.

EV Sold only slightly less than SV on its first week. There's an obvious reason that the low selling ones are low selling . . .
The stuff came up after EV, actually. I know, I agree, I said the same thing, and I think he did too, but there are also people (particularly ones who aren't fans of the Versus games) that only look at the individual console sales rather than combined, and if the bigwigs or whatever are doing that, then they might think the "versions" of EV both sold miserably rather than together. I mean it's not like we don't see companies releasing two games under the same name on handheld/console when they're actually different ones.
If actual gamers who should understand that they're the same game are making this error, businessmen who may not have a clue could probably get confused very easily.
