Doll plastic models confirmed: http://xenobladex.jp/special/sp-welcome20150430.html
Hopefully it comes overseas.
They've already stated there'd be some changes in the localization. So far there's Dolls to Skells(I guess doll makes insecure people cringe or something)
/v/ is currently running around with their heads cut off because they think the bikini's will be changed.
Honestly as long as they don't so anything that actually had an impact on the plot or characterization (like how the "I have to put it back" scene in XS episode 3 makes zero sense if you take out the blood like they did), then I'll be fine with it.
I wish NoE was handling it, I really liked their work on the Rainfall games and their releases of Inazuma Eleven, while Treehouse lately hasn't been as good as their past works.
I understand complains about like changing terminology already in English, but no of course it's the fanservice they get pissy about.
They're mostly using this slippery slope from the change of Dolls to skells to say that everything will be 4kids tier and the plot ruined. It's preemptive shitposting. I'd honestly be madder about the terminology changes rather than a couple bikinis but they swear the bikini's are important to the creators artistic vision.
I've been hearing that the term Dolls has plot relevance. Along with it being written on a ton of stuff.
>the bikini's will be changed
Don't fucking dare!
/v/ is definitely more panicky about the prospect of the fap-bait bikinis and other provocative outfits being censored.
The problem being that one of the party members is a 13 year old girl (who somehow has fully developed breasts) and can wear the same skimpy outfits as any other female party member.
I like Dolls better because of the irony. Its name is that of a delicate thingy, but it's actually a killing machine. Not to mention it makes more sense in this context:
"Gods appeared as humans in religious paintings because it made them more relatable, and Dolls were given arms and legs because that made it easier for humans to control the complex machines. So naturally they were called Dolls, being nothing more than obedient tools to satisfy our selfish needs."
I keep reading this as something else...
