Ugh, he's so hot I'm gonna get a nosebleed...!
Raise your hand if you've never felt this way about an attractive male character. It's no use to hide it: we all have one or two particular characteristics that make our hearts race and heads spin.
In this new column fetish talks, we will cover various forms of fetishism, and try to understand what girls love by talking to creators of moe contents for women.
In this first installment, we interviewed Yomi Sarachi, the character designer behind Band Yarouze!'s OSIRIS and Arcana Famiglia.
She loves black-haired characters burdened by guilt...!?
I can't believe it, my tastes stayed the same! I guess I like characters who live hard and fast. Even though he was blond, not black-haired.
She started drawing illustrations because of her beloved Howl's fan arts
Pro character designers need to suppress their fetishes
If I could combine my interests freely, I'd go with "steampunk & machine bodies"
Yomi Sarachi's fetish points are... Guilt & black hair!
It also looks like that, looking back at the characters you used to love and who you still love, you might find a few common traits!
What kind of fetishes will come next? Please look forward to the next fetish talks article!
