It tickles me when you consider this game originated from the Japanese gaming industry. It's amusing because said industry also produces Otome games that objectify males & are clearly aimed at female Gamers. Entire areas of stores are dedicated to these games & can be freely imported or translation versions are available on PC. Clearly if people take issue with this, shouldn't Otome gaMes follow suit? The real issue is not Senran Kagura Burst. The real issue is the western gaming industry doesn't offer the same diversity & neutrality as the Japanese industry does so people jump on the hate bandwagon when a title like this springs up instead of querying western developers & publishers where games aimed at the female audience are

@Yomerodes It's so easy to spot those that haven't played the game & those that have. Those, like you & I, that have played the game seem to have been left with the same impression that it's a fun & enjoyable game with an interesting cast. A far cry from the usual slurs and jibes from those that clearly haven't played the game like to throw around.

@Ernest_The_Crab That's a really good point

I wouldn't be surprised if the white Knight crusading regarding this game by male journalists is more offensive to some women as their basically portraying them to be frail & weak minded as to not make up their own minds on the games content by providing a review and boycott it in their ignorance.

I guess websites are going to start boycotting Otome games now too seen as they objectify males in a similar way? I doubt it...
