I always hated XII/XIII's art style for how badly it screwed a bunch of characters with just a few obvious flaws. Some like Iori, Mature, Elizabeth, Shen Woo, Leona were great, but King's stick arms, Kyo's hair and shoulder pads (idk his frame just looks so wrong), Ralf's meat-stuffed packs, Mai's dangling milk balloons, the way they represented fire, and the color explosions on the special effects, always thought it was awful.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
