Firstly, let me explain the reasons why I started all of this.
I’m not doing it to offend YandereDev or his work, because I truly respect it. I do not support YS haters.
I’m doing it because I care about this character. Ever since The Rival Introduction came out, I fell in love with Kizana Sunobu deeply. The reasons why I do love her so much are way above to tell, and this post is not about it.
So let me get this straight. Why do I want her old design back?
Well, the most predictable reason is the color scheme. I have a strong feel of color, so I know what I’m saying - these colors are beautiful. The tones are amazingly pleasant and calm, and they fit together. The artist used different colors - silver and watermelon-ish pink. It’s much better than using tones of one single color, like it is in new one. Plus, silver fits Kizana’s personality much more. I see her as a workaholic pedant, who needs everything to be perfect, and silver, a tone of white, is a perfect desire for a character like this. She looks neat and tidy. Speaking of the design itself, I think jabot fits way better than a choker with rose. Not only because it makes Kizana fancy, but because jabot is an accessory of the drama club. She’s a president of it, why should she make an exception for herself?
I also have to mention that silvery white hair and reddish eyes makes her look like an albino. It would make a great concept! If she would be a real albino, it would turn Kizana to really interesting and unique character, because this disease would create tons of problems for an actress, and would show her as a determinative, tough girl, who will follow her dreams no matter what. It would also create some sad moments about her, since I’m sure people would make laugh of her appearence.
The thing is, she doesn’t even have to be the REAL albino. People would make jokes anyway.
I also need to refer to the resemblance of new Kizana to Kokona. I’m SICK of hearing stupid stuff like “Kokona wannabe”, “Kokona number 2″, “She’s Kokona anyways” (especially the last one, because it’s OBVIOUSLY clear they are NOT the same person). I was meh to Kokona, I started to like her when her full storyline came out, but NOW I HATE HER WITH ALL MY SOUL! I just can’t stand her idiotic fans protecting her from nothing. It is pretty clear Kizana DOES NOT replace your precious Kokona, but you STILL CONTINUE to hate Kizana for nothing! I’m sure - if the old design would stay, such people would turn to zero, or at least, close to it.
But what about Megami? - you’d ask.
This problem is not a big deal. Megami had black hair and white stockings from the start. Personally, I like this version of her more, since black hair was making her mysterious and frightening. She is the final and the most hard rival, so these characteristics would fit her perfectly.
In the end, I’d like to say that I’m not trying to offend anyone. I’m not forcing anyone to take part in #savekizana. All of the art people provide is made by their own choise - they support me. I’m not trying to start a civil war or anything like this. If YandereDev doesn’t want to change this character, even if people prefer her old design - it’s fine. This is his game and his choise. I’m not going to write any hate posts about him if he keeps the curent design (tho I’ll be very depressed to be honest).
I just care about this character and its destiny.
