@trogdor thanks to Anime&Manga we actually have a canonical question to explain what I meant. Should you want to follow the link, I advise that you first look at the url.
Coincidentally, this should also give you a clue about why I try to avoid the Anime&Manga site even if I watch anime.
 
oh
ok so not gonna jump down that rabbit hole then
 
This is a pre-time skip Nami.
Compare with her post skip appearance.
Clue: the post time skip version basically wears a swimsuit top and a pair of jeans.
And even so, it is still far better than what happened to Hinata in Naruto.
At least with Nami, you can still guess she is meant to be the same character.
 
7:47 AM
oh
One Piece?
with the deer guy and the rubber guy and, the nose guy?
sorry, I never watched it I've only seen clips so no name recognition at all
XD
 
let's just say that as the show goes on, the character design has been getting more fanservice oriented.
 
certainly disappointing
 
which is funny, since the original Nami used to have far more natural body proportions, to the point that she was basically given a lookalike in Harvest Moon.
 
yeah
I imagine it's especially frustrating seeing as she didn't start that way
 
well, I suppose it was expected.
 
7:56 AM
it shouldn't be though
 
That said, I would say that that specific character would have a lot of reasons for not going around wearing just some swimwear and a pair of pants
As Kureha said (going by memory, can't find the exact quote now)
"This fever is transmitted by an insect that should have been extinct for thousand of years now"
> "have you been running around some prehistoric island wearing just a swimsuit?"
I would think that after risking to die once because you managed to catch some tropical fever and getting told that you could maybe have avoided that with better clothes......
 
8:12 AM
well
I personally would count that as a fluke
but the bigger argument of having changed the character in the first place does still stand
 
8:35 AM
@trogdor no wait, she DID catch the fever because she was running around on a prehistoric island wearing some clothes that she probably stole from Shantae wardrobe.
 
@Derpy oh well, really not that big a difference?
 
Well, the joke wouldn't have worked otherwise. The doctor said something she though was absurd because she didn't see any way someone could manage to catch that illness nowadays.... and that was exactly what actually happened in the first place.
 
ah
 
 
5 hours later…
@goodguy5 AWESOME!
 
my buddy said it looks like she's trying to start a show on the USA network, to which I said, yea I'd watch that.
 
@goodguy5 yes! A very Silk Stalkings feel to it.
or Top Gun
 
 
2 hours later…
4:37 PM
hmmmm
theory: Chaser's War on Everything-style reality TV comedy following someone who's running for president as a convoluted prank expecting to fail very early, but they don't so they keep running with it expecting to fail sooner or later, and get all the way to election day without pulling out of the race and eventually wind up actually elected and completely unprepared for this having happened. (But they go on to become a fairly decent president anyway.)
 
 
3 hours later…
7:40 PM
@Derpy I figured that's what you meant
 
8:09 PM
@goodguy5 Haha, that's a perfect description.
