@Anarchy-Marine Yeah, I'm aware that Risa has some damage; that's kind of my point. Her 'interests' aren't really a positive trait, and like most characters who have a sexuality beyond 'wears an outfit that's kind of provocative by American standards' she's seemingly dismissive of things like consent.
An interesting character by many standards (most characters aren't widely called 'waifus' just because of a few peoples' fetishes), but a pretty strong example that PSO2's story writing likes its characters -dressing- sexy, but not necessarily acting that way.
Again, kind of ironic since the two most popular and expensive emotes are stripper dances.
@zaffy2005 The First Amendment is not a universal moral imperative; it's a very limited legal clause that is unique to one culture out of the hundreds on the Earth. It's especially bold to apply it to a Japanese video game created for Japanese culture, which has no such guiding principle in its law and routinely censors materials that it finds dangerous, subversive, or 'immoral'.
Authors of Japanese media proactively censor themselves all the time to avoid controversy, it just doesn't seem that way to Americans because what they consider offensive or risky to do is different than what you or I think is.
