Why? are you uncomfortable with fictional characters being skimpy?

I find it charming.

Think they'll ever tell us who the White Lights' true identities are? Laughing

Type/Moon writing, A-1 animation? This looks fun, I'm definitely in. Are we sure Asuta isn't supposed to be a boy? The seiyuu is certainly male...

I wish there is a full anime preview soon but I'll look forward to this for sure.

I find it kinda funny how Mao Ichimichi is forever going to be cast as sentai characters due to being Gokai Yellow.

You should find it uncomfortable, especially when the characters looks 10 year old.

The characters are very cute but those outfits are just plain STUPID.

Of course they are, that's the joke. The protagonists of this story are villains, and anime villains dressing like complete sexual deviants is a trope that goes back to at least the 70s.

Yeah, I don't know why the description for Dva says "she", but that's definitely a guy (unless there's some weird ass gimmick attached to that character Shocked ).

Oh wow, I'm not the only who thought Dva was the most bishie-like girl I've ever seen.

It's hard to tell. They're completely androgynous.

This strikes me as an over-rationalization. I wish there were more shows I could watch without worrying someone walking in on me.

Well, I'm certain the creators are market-savvy enough to know it'd have an appeal to a certain kind of fan as well, but it doesn't change the fact that it's been a trope for hammy super-villains in anime to be dressed up in kinky bondage gear or like outlandish drag queens since the early Go Nagai/Yatterman days. It's hardly anything new.

BDSM and drag queens should protest at their constant persecution! Laughing
