Title: May's new appearance
Post by: Fancollectorgeek on 07 Jan 2021, 21:47
Hi - sorry if this has already been discussed at all, but May's new eyebrows look so bizarre to me.  I know the point is she's in a new body but I liked her old look better.  Long time reader, first time whiner.

P.S. I have actually visited Northampton.

Yeah, I find the eyebrows very distracting as part of her look. I thought I'd get used to it, but somehow I haven't yet.

Who knows, maybe there's an AI setting like for Mille's hair that controls eyebrow thickness.

As for Northampton, I've been there a few times, and have even hiked Mount Tom. It's a cool place.

I like her eyebrows, but then I am a fan of women with natural unplucked brows.

I don't mind the look, it makes May stand out and more importantly it helps May pop from her previous chassis.

So am I, but her eyebrows are so... square. Short and broad. It looks a bit strange to me.

Personally, I cannot shake the feeling that May's appearance is deliberately mimicking an animé character (especially the eyebrows). However, I can't put my mental finger on who she is supposed to resemble.

She's not like any specific anime character I know.

Indeed, she appears to be all of them, distilled down to a singular concentrated form. She just needs a maid costume that is also somehow battle armour.

I've got a whole rack of them in my closet. I can lend you all a few.

There's a style of circular eyebrows that mimics  the eyebrow markings of shiba dogs.

But I think it might be meant to reference eyebrows like Tsumugi Kotobuki's (https://k-on.fandom.com/wiki/Tsumugi_Kotobuki) from the K-ON! series?

She reminds me of Mugi from K-on.

That's the character whose eyebrows May's looked the most like when I searched 'anime characters with shiba eyebrow'.

May's eyebrows screamed Pandy (cf Retro).

I just assumed she was supposed to be a flashback to #1658...
