drastically changing the artstyle you've been establishing for six years in your ongoing mobage is an asinine idea no matter how you slice it, whether you make them look like walking goddesses or turn them into desaturated zombies with no joy in their eyes; either commit to making an entirely new project where the old artstyle won't be featured at all anymore (this includes through old cards) or just work with what you already had
it’s been a while since i’ve posted here, sorry! i’ve just been very busy as of late— i recently graduated high school! yay for me!
but i wanted to stop in and make a pride post to celebrate— my apologies, this is actually more of a text post than a graphic edit, but, alas.
i just wanna talk about rimi i guess, specifically about why trans girl rimi is so special to me. when i first started playing bandori, OVER 2 years ago, i liked popipa from the very beginning, and i still do.
i immediately gravitated most to rimi, and after getting more caught up on the lore, my little brain decided “yep. trans her” so i did, and i’ve just been pondering it since.
in my little head, i’ve decided that from the beginning of the bandori story (which i believe is their first year of high school?) rimi was very new in her transition, but she fell in easily with the rest of popipa (& the other bands later) because of how open minded they all were.
none of popipa was rude or cruel to her despite her trans ness being rather foreign to them. they just included her without a word about it. this helped to boost her confidence, and continues to do so over the course of the bandori story— my only real “evidence” for this lil HC of mine is that a lot of rimi’s older casual-outfit cards have some … interesting fashion choices, which is very common with people who are new to dressing as the correct gender— they arent sure what will look good on them, or what will look good together.
and as the bandori story goes on, rimi just gets more into the feel of being herself. in my head, it’s just a little b plot to the overarching story, but its honestly one of my favourite things to ponder.
happy pride my silly gooses!!!! i hope u enjoyed trans rimi rambles :3
