Oh sh*t, I just called my mom by accident.

How can someone buy this and not be thought of as an unmitigated loser?  I mean really.   Seriously.  Are there people out there who go: "Welp, I have absolutely no hope ever having a social life, might as well go all in.  At least I can pretend fondle fake boobs of a cartoon on a train."

I can't find a shop that will send these via airmail to the USA. Usually I'd take that as a sign, but I need to go deeper.

Japanese nerds have gotten really breast obsessed in recent years.

I confess I browse anime art sites once in awhile, and all the art of 14 year old anime girls with Size E boobs and larger is just apalling!

I blame America.

And characters look different from each other with colored eyes and hair. I think it's a coping mechanism for having such a linear and monochromatic reality.

Silicone? So they're real fake boobs

5 different manga girls? So its the exact same girl except with different hair color.

The last one is pretty funny.  Four cheerful girls who don't mind you touching their 'boobs', and one who looks really damn uncomfortable.

Wow.  Hey, it's Japan.  Parts of it I love, parts of it WTF?!

What you don't understand is that there are MILLIONS of unmitigated losers in Japan who will snatch shiat shiat up.

Go read up on Hikikomori. "Japans lost million"  There is a whole subclass of japanese that can't handle the social pressure and hole up in their rooms.

I think it's just a nerd thing. I've occasionally tried to keep up with the Skyrim modding scene, and based on what I've seen a plurality of the users have modded their games in such a way that every single female in the game has unhealthily large bosoms.

/One Dolly Parton is more than enough, guys

The stupidity of giant boobs aside, Skyrim has 2 character meshes for each race. Male and Female. If you change the mesh for your hero, you change all the meshes for any characters that are the same race/gender as you.

/I don't understand the enormous boob thing, but I get why all the females would have them rather then just the player.

The last one is actually a different archetype - and probably creepier than you're thinking. The Japanese translates to "little sister twin-tail". Little sister characters in anime/manga are common, and are frequently a romantic target for some reason. Twin-tail characters are typically associated with "tsundere" character personalities - girls who act all cold and aloof to their love interest (for lack of a better description).

So it's less targeted towards guys into rape porn, but those into "little sister who's in love with you but acts all cold on the surface" porn.

Other types are "childhood friend", "maid", "(older) girl next door", and "cosplayer"

So the sliders at character creation don't just set your characters look, but every NPCs look? If so, Bethesda got lazy (or really clever?). I'm sure some of the male characters had variety in builds, though that may be a race thing rather than customization.

The character meshes are parameterized to a certain extent, so there can be variations with each model. But the big boob replacement characters replace the entire mesh, so it affects everyone.

This isn't a new trend really. I got a couple if those with various anime styled games I preordered (I want to say Agarest war?). I was honestly embarrassed AND found them to be insanely uncomfortable when I tried using one.

I can't imagine the pocket tits would be comfy in a pocket, and aside from being ridiculous and kind of fun as a gag, can't imagine really wanting it. But I get the impression that a lot of Japan is wired and likes things like this.

Bikini girl is the most amusing, because the expression on her face is the one you see right before you are beat down for grabbing some tits.

Those sliders only change your face around. Head meshes are separate from body meshes (you can frequently see seams at the neck where the models meet). Messing around with facial features is the primary way the game distinguishes between NPCs. Important NPCs even get custom facial textures.

I think that "weight" or "age" adjust the physical size of the body mesh, but other then that, the actual shape of the bodies don't change between characters of the same sex and race.

/yes bethesda is lazy.
//Then again, making a hundred different body meshes is utterly impractical.
