strike-blade asked:okay YES MAHOU SHOUJOU FLONNE WAS GIVEN VERY LOOSE JUSTIFICATION BUT I MEAN COME ON IT'S MAHOU SHOUJOU FLONNE
I don’t need a stupid skimpy outfit on one of the better characters in the series
Etna was bad enough, I don’t need Flonne going down that route
Etna is a succubus. Magical Girl outfits aren’t necessary skimpy. Want skimpy? Look at Cutey Honey. What Flonne has is not skimpy.
While the Etna is a Succubus thing is a bit up to debate (doesn’t she hate succubi?), I do agree with this. Besides, all things considering, Flonne’s Idol outfit wasn’t any more “skimpy” than her normal legs-showing leotard and floofy open shirt. It was more basically a two-piece compared to her usual one-piece, and in fact could be argued to be a little more covering in spots than the original leotard itself, including the knee-high boots.
Someone made a list of what demon race each character was once Disgaea 4 came out specifically telling people who was what and when you compare them to other demons, it makes sense.
Which is why it’s easy for me to think Etna, Hanako and Raspberyl are succubus, Rozalin an hybrid of a vampire (because only vampires apparently cover themselves up in this universe) and Laharl, Adell, Axel, Mao and Xenolith are incubus (with Mao being more on the ice giant side of things if you ask me).
I’ve watched a lot of hentai to know what the fuck is slutty magical girl outfit. -cough-
For the record, I could totally at least see Rozalin as a vampire of sorts, but I think it all depends on how vampires are in terms of the Disgaea-verse. She is technically supposed to be whatever kind of race of demons that Yukimaru/Fubuki’s clan is from, and given her mother’s design, I would actually be more inclined that she is of Yuki-Onna descent, instead.
Mao definitely has ice giant in him, though. That’s probably what his dad actually is— he sure is big enough to pass as one, and the ice affinity has to come from somewhere. I wonder what his mom was like?
But yeah, on-topic, Flonne’s Idol outfit isn’t even borderline slutty. It’s just… Magical girl. I think of it more like Precure’s outfits with a midriff.
