I used to do this kind of monologue thing where I'd take this thick slavic accent. "Kroduk not want skinny pencil woman ---break in half consummating marriage! Kroduk want strong woman, with HIPS. Give many strapping sons, DA!"

Ah, good, somebody beat me to posting Galko-chan pics. Good, good.

I'd post something from Senran Kagura, but I'm pretty sure that'd summon the moderators very quickly.

It's good to see some anime embracing (and not using as the butt of jokes) different body types than the typical impossibly thin character. Though honestly I'm not sure how much of an impact anime body types have on Western women. We're already bombarded on all sides by real images of impossible to achieve standards. I would think it would have more of an effect in Japan where anime characters are regularly used in advertisements and promotions.

That said threads like "which anime character looks best in a swimsuit" feel rather silly to me. It's page after page of characters with the same body types just with different heads and swimsuit designs.


*thinks*

You know, in the Age of HD, I actually have a hard time watching Hollywood people in the movies, on TV, etc. They just look odd to me without the soft focus. Too skinny, usually. Deathly so. And with obvious make-up. They don't even look like the same species as the people I see in the regular world every day. It's kind of unsettling. ... Then again, I find anime / manga character design appealing, so I don't know what that says about me. Strange, though: To me, though they all tend to have the same basic body type, give or take a Galko-chan, they still manage to look different to me, and I can't quite put my finger on why that is.

It's definitely too late in the day for me to start a hunt for some SFW images from that series ;)

In a similar vein, someone already mentioned Ladies vs Butlers so I'd like to add Maken Ki! or basically anything by Xebec lol

If only the in game models matched the art. Maybe in 7even. Still, Peach Beach Splash is super fun and, even if it wasn't, it might still be worth it for all of the card art alone.

Renaissance!? Marilyn Monroe et al were the gold standard in figures not so long ago.

Where this thing for stick thin came from I've no idea but it's real recent and it never swayed me any.

Fashion industry really pushed the skin and bones look for a while. I can remember in high school thinking some of these super models can't be healthy. Was in girl in one of my classes who actually fainted right out of her chair middle of class because of the crazy get thin diet she was doing.

Yep, I don't disagree, but in the scheme of things that's a recent phenomenon, just 60 years ago body shapes in the mainstream media were a whole heap more normal.

Funny thing being that throughout many cultures for a lot of their history a woman being larger was more desirable because it was indicative of fertility and wealth. Hell humans are the only mammal out of nearly 5000 species that have permanently engorged breasts even when not lactating and it is generally accepted part of the reason for this is because it signified that they had the resources available to them to raise a healthy child with the general male proclivity towards moderately sized to large breasts over small to none being and extension of this. Basically skinny girls with no tits were less likely to be a good successful mate than a larger one.

Skinny being the beauty standard is pretty much a cultural anomaly.


On a more on topic note though; the girls in My Hero Academia are all pretty well built. None are "skinny" but none are chubby. Nice middle ground. Though I do like just verging on chubby I call it cuddly.
