Below is a screen shot i just took of a character from an anime i am watching atm (im bored at work, and can do these things)...The characters name is Goemon. She is a Ninja , and one of the main characters in the show "The Ambition of Oda Nobuna".



Anyone who knows anything about the Warring States era (or even played a few famous video games that take place during that time period) should notice a few things ... first, that Goemon was a man in real life. Second, that the person you THINK im thinking of is Oda Nobunaga. Well you see, this show centers around a "alternate-history" theme where some of the more famous figures of the Warring States era are actually females. Which is why its Oda Nobuna as the main character, not Oda Nobunaga...and why Goemon is a loli.

Here is where my mixed emotions come into play here people...and pay attention please...

Above, you clearly see a cute little loli...
Below you will see how Goemon is depicted in Samurai Warriors 4 (a personal favorite game of mine for awhile now)



As you can see, vast difference here..and it is toying with my emotions on such an epic level that i actually paused my show to sit here and type all of this out for those who may (but prolly dont) care...just to get it off my chest as i am sitting here at work trying really hard not to make it to obvious that i am having a Mortal Kombat duel inside my heart and brain right now.

For your time reading this, Arigato!

P.S. - Yes, i am aware that this show has been out for quite awhile now...but i am working on over a decade of backlog and catching up so please forgive my lateness in addressing this issue. Arigato!

All the main characters in anime you are watching are female with a few male characters playing minor roles which again you have to let go the factual part and enjoy the creators different interpretation of the time period in history I kinda of like the anime your watching. Could relate to monkey in goofball way

It is kind of frustrating when they lolify historical figures. Then again, would people really watch the show had it not included the adorable loli format? It's a successful strategy that attracts a lot of anime fans worldwide. ^.^ Entertainment is an escape from reality. We all like to imagine, no? Heh, don't let that MK duel end without doing a fatality. Be fun!
