Hey all. Sorry I’ve not been working on Norn9 (lol) pretty much abandoning it till 22May.
Anyway, I’ve found an interesting article that kinda explains the mechanism behind Rejet’s Do.S and typical Yandere characters that allow women to fulfil their desire to be strongly desired after.
And THAT CAVEMAN PART ROFL
This basically works well in especially Japan because of the (still) prevalent opinion of women as the weaker sex and feminine restraint of the socially acceptable Japanese woman.
So are we, or are we not going to support these false titilations and or relish in a mock female empowerment?!
I guess if this a way for females to explore themselves mentally (sounds wrong no matter how I put it) it might be instinctive, but save the best for someone you really love! 👍🏻
The second link describes a little on the trope in romance fiction and yes- Otome games been there done that with the guy showing his weaker side to the innocent heroine. Tickling her motherly instincts. Lol
As for me, I’ve never instantly liked the Alpha male type, and tend to go for the more gentle and (slightly) feminine types like Nike from Senjou Waltz because I see a balance in power play and not have someone be on my neck all the time. As so happens to be my latest crush in real life -3- I prefer cute to swagger rofl. As to whether I have dreams about being pursued by Alpha males, I’ll leave that up to your imagination 😉
Discuss! 😀 It’s an Otome gamers’ forum!! 😀
There’ll be plenty of other articles so share the links here if you found some! 😀
