*Scratches head* Well, shit, Anon-san. (‘_’)
I’ll see what I can do. But would you mind coming off-Anon, even just in private? I think you’re the only anon left who’s messaging me nao so you might just be the only person who wants this. :lol: I could just send the recording to you. OwO
I could list down five good reasons right off the bat, Anon-san. XD
1. Just to see if I’d actually do it.
2. As a joke.
3. To troll.
4. As an example of how a person should not sound like.
5. To actually listen to me singing a song. XD
Not saying you’re trolling me, but all of those are possible reasons. XD
go crazy xD
I mean, why yes, I guess that would be acceptable.
(I LOVE YOU, ANON-SAN. OwO)
OKAY, FIRST OFF—
(I missed joo. OwO)
Imma try to answer as best as I can! OwO
That kawaii is considered better than, say, beautiful is like a subculture in Japan that has rapidly gained an increasing foothold even in some Western cultures. That’s not to say that all men find cute girls more attractive than more womanly girls, but it’s a trend that’s becoming strong especially in anime circles, so it’s blatantly displayed a whole lot on anime, manga, and games. If you’ve heard of the Moe culture, it’s kind of connected.
In terms of Riki, I think Riki meant it as a backhanded compliment. MC might think that Riki would like more mature girls, since he’s very sophisticated, so Riki calling him “cute” would come across as an insult or a turn-off. But, obviously, since it’s Riki’s route and they will end up with each other in the end, he calling MC cute is his way of complimenting her, because at the end of the day, it’s the cute MC who’s with Riki, instead of beautiful girls like Julie.
If you’ve played Baba’s POV, you’d also come across this. There, he starts questioning himself why he’s starting to think more and more of MC, when she’s not really his type, that’s he’s into more mature girls. He even calls her “a kid” at the beginning after buying her at the auction. But he’d still end up falling for her and her cutesy, clumsy, endearing ways. XD
Did that answer your question? XD I ramble a lot. D:
