      So I'm NOT weird for liking the fashion in JRPGs! I just have a high taste in fashion!

          And then that someone counters you with a:
          "But fashion is stupid" and you just have to nod in silent agreement

            You talk about fashion, but no honorable to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure??? Granted, it began as manga but it has games and it is FABULOUS enough to merit.

              Idk if it's just my screen, but I think all of Jenna's shots could do with some temperature correction or grading or something. There's a lot of red that I think needs balancing. But anyways this is one of my fave videos to date!

                I knew Jojo's Bizarre Adventure had a lot of fashion in it, but now it seems obvious that other "wacky anime clothes" would be influenced in such a way as well.

                    Sepheroth looks like a DMC cosplayer on his way to an Oakland Raiders game. There. I said it.

                        It’s not a jrpg outfit if it doesn’t have an abundance of zippers and or buckles

                                Whoa, this video is so awesome!! I love learning about character design and fashion, and I didn’t realize there was so much historical and cultural context in those crazy designs. Thank you Jenna! I’d love to see more of these c: 💕

                                  Yeah, but for real though, their fashion would get them killed.

                                    I mean, dumb and fashionable aren't exactly mutually exclusive. I can never get my head around how long it would most of these characters to get dressed in the morning, let alone making the decision to add all the accessories whilst trekking through the wilderness to fight the Big Bad.

                                                    All the designers cited in this video just have a much better sense of balance and control than Nomura. Incorporating streetwear was a good idea, but he's so cartoonish, especially coming on the heels of Amano. It's fine for KH but disastrous for FF. Tidus is basically a Minion.

Feminist took the sweet JRPG style and shit on it!

We need more gaming content like this because seeing how characters' clothing tells a story is so so important imo. Just wondering... how do we get western gamedevs to care about fashion? So much of the costuming is atrocious and in historical settings, inaccurate (and obv creative liberties aren't necessarily a bad thing, but there's no valid reason for a renaissance setting to include lace knickers.)
