Hope you like Ganguro!
This blog will likely be short, keep that in mind.
I am becoming more and more interested in Ganguro girls and applying different aspects of society into female game characters. Those two are sorta unrelated, true, but I keep wondering why Europe, America AND Japan seem to lack female leads that don't end up being stupid in the long run. I mean, geez, name me the last game where you played as a female. Then a game where you play as a black female. Only Resident Evil 5 comes to mind, but I'm looking for quality, here.
But going back to Ganguro girls, why is it that cultures are rarely explored in games? Only one game I know of, The World Ends With You, went so deeply into a single, real city. Most game have it either be a fake city or a whole country (Persona 3). It even had Ganguro girls.
FUCK YEAH GANGURO
Sure, people may not like 'em, but exploring a culture should be showing as much ugliness as there is beauty, right?
Anyway, the reason this isn't a monthly musing is because I'm waiting 'till spring break two weeks from now to right it.
