Rorona vs Lolina

atelier-meruru-002-1

Gust’s decision to magically lolificate Rorona for Atelier Meruru so they would be spared the prospect of having her as an old hag in her thirties is proving divisive, with “big Rorona” seemingly garnering much more support than “Lolina” despite the noted lolicon proclivities of series fans…

The results from the Japanese GameSpot:

rorona-vs-lolina-001

Even 2ch is convinced of the merits of hag Rorona:

“Trying.”

“The big one.”

“However you look at it the big version is best.”

“Why does it come down to a hag and a loli. The 14-year-old Rorona is best though.”

“Honestly, they made her too loli. At 11-13 she would be top.”

“We should raid it and make it favour the little one.”

“The little Rorona may be called Rorona but otherwise it’s like a different character.”

“The first Rorona was best.”

rorona-vs-lolina-002
rorona-vs-lolina-003

“But in-game she was Lolina…”

rorona-vs-lolina-004

“Harsh.”

“I hope they fix that in the Vita version.”

rorona-vs-lolina-005

“Juana Olsys: 37.”

rorona-vs-lolina-006

“Sterkenburug Cranach: 39”

rorona-vs-lolina-007

“Estiy Erhard: 40”

“All their ages are messed up.”

Creepy barbarians join the fray, reminding everyone why western governments are rapidly catching up to China in certain select areas:

    Normalfags... Normalfags everywhere there AND in here.

    Anyhow, that one 2ch poster is right. A 11-13 Rorona would be the best, ideally 11 or 12 for absolute perfection.

    I'm really confused about the age thing. Do you guys realize how young some girls look at age 11?

    That 2chan poster is right. The in-game Rorona looked like... 6-7 years old. Just a strange disparity.

    I still laugh at Gust for not having the guts to do a great 30 year old character. Or well... most anime/manga/novel creators who just can't seem to bother doing one.

    I think I'll choose the “Disturbingly Sexualized Young Girls” edition instead.

    Either version of Rorona's fine with me, her older or Loli form.

    give rorona gunz, add first person views, and throw in some zombies with multiplayer online.

    gust will then be the most successful gaming company in all of japan.

    I don't think Japanese Gamespot readers belong to the target audience...Lolina is just superior.

    This time make a survey yourself, Arty. (these ones: http://anime.biglobe.ne.jp/userranking/)

    And/Or alternatively, let's make a Sancom-only survey.

    I can't help but to agree. They really did a good job with the original. Not that the new one is bad either.

    Rorona getting older is interesting, while her suddenly becoming a loli is fucking stupid, but I really like both/all of the designs. I just don't get why there seems to NEED to be a change. Whatever direction this goes, I like it though, so I don't care which one "wins".

    I don't think they messed up the age
    look(calculate from the start of the games)
    Atelier Rorona --> Atelier Totori
    Rorona age in Atelier Rorona = 14
    Rorona age in Atelier Totori = 22
    so it's about 8 years later in first game

    Atelier Totori --> Atelier Meruru
    Totori age in Atelier Totori = 13
    Totori age in Atelier Meruru = 19
    so it's about 6 years later in the second game

    And Esty age at first is 26
    so in this game should be 26+8+6 = 40
    they didn't messed up the age time
    except Rorona since the team want her tobe loli = ='

    They look pretty youthful for being up there in their 30's. I mean, damn! But then that's not too far from reality, now is it?

    Sincerely, I haven't yet understood what's so good in a prepubescent girl.

    It seems to me like those dumbass girls who are crazy about Justin Biberon (French Term for "Baby Bottle ")... ^^

    But then again the problem might be on my side, which I think that two huge boobs is the best of what a 2d girl may have to offer... ^^

    The games is not even out yet and people are complaining. Before everyone gets all their pantsu further in a bunch, try playing the game and see if you like the loli version.

    I think it's an interesting idea- having played the 1st game- and trust the production staff on this one. Fans should get what they desire, and there are times when the fans should not try to curtail the creativity of the developers.

    Besides, even if people complain, they will buy Meruru anyway after having played the first two games. Adding three guys in IM@S 2 didn't stop IM@s fanboys despite the complaints in that case.

    Also, I don't get what's with all this negativity towards a character getting older. That's life. Beauty doesn't last forever. But I don't even need to mention that, because the "hag" version is still incredibly beautiful and well-drawn. If that constitutes a hag, your standards and expectations are dangerously high and make you seem like an arrogant piece of shit.

    If fans of the series really want a lolita as their protagonist, they could always just play, oh, I don't know... every other game in the entire series?

    I don't know about Rorona, but Juana Olsys and Estiy Erhard are pretty damn hot. I'm fine with these two... :3
    Thought the ages are messed up and don't go with how they look. wtf?

    Personally I like the old one or just the teenager one.

    Never got into the series, so take it as you will...
    I can see her being like, 15. Then it's just fantasy, and if you really want to, you can sort of suspend disbelief. Even if she's numerically 30 and physically 8... the whole thing just looks ridiculous. It's like someone trying to pass off Komoe-sensei, but being serious about it.
    I'd actually like to try a game in this series and see what the hype is about, but I think if I do, I'll grab an older title instead because... I just can't relate to a little kid like that. Also, I couldn't play it without feeling like the creepiest lolicon playing a non-porn game.

    I'd say trap Rorona is better.

    Names that try to appear foreign in Japanese anime&games always bug me to no end. Why can't they go with something simple like 'Smith' or 'Williams', always inventing weird names that don't sound like they're particularly from anywhere.

    Pokémon Trainer Red would like to have a "word" with you about his Japanese name being hard. And I don't see the problem either. The names may be weird but at least they're trying to be creative

    I'm all for loli and everything, but... Rorona is a bit too young. A 11 or 12 Rorona would make the best loli, and would be at ideal appeal body-wise.

    I like the older version. The young one looks too much like Holly Hobbie.
