Not feeling it so far. The designs look meh except for Fena, and the director inspires no confidence at all. Still really early though, so anything can change at this point. Trailer showed potential at least.

Okay, sooo... why is she white?

Her skin is #FFFFFF. They could've at least made her as dark as Anthy and Nadia and those two girls from DanMachi.

ya this looks really uninspired like most the CR stuff in the last few seasons. Honestly the less involvement CR has in stuff, the better things will be just based on all their "Originals" already. Wasting so much good talent IMO

Do these people have no idea what pirates look like?

The show looks more like Fena: Samurai Princess

Did you even read the synopsis? and besides it's drawing, more accurately anime style drawing so race and looks aren't taken into consideration unless it's crucial to the story. And again, go read the synopsis.

How did you get that she can't be white out of that?

CR should just stick to licensing anime. This will be the next Gibiate.

There were such a thing as white slaves. And the Barbary pirates took white American and European slaves.

The synopsis that I quoted which says she's being held as chattel by the British Empire? Yeah, I read that.

A) That's BS. Anime characters are not just some blank default race.
B) If she's chattel, that's crucial to the story.

This is explicitly about the British Empire, not the Barbary Pirates, and the British did not keep white people as chattel slaves. If they said she was an indentured servant, then maybe, though that wouldn't make sense with the rest of the plot. But the synopsis specifically calls her "chattel," and that means something very specific.

I'll be honest, not feeling this Ronin Warriors reboot.

Seriously. Fena is like the only character that really, REALLY stands out among the cast of darkly, similar-looking ninja pirates.

I think it looks kind of interesting. I'm not expecting historically accurate drama. So if the pirates look like ninjas, that's cool with me. The director's interview was hilarious though. He sounded like he was speaking to people just learning Japanese so maybe they could follow along without the subs. Very Happy
