It's the "it's our culture!" excuse.

Basically, they're saying they don't have to change because it's their culture. That's fine, but we don't have to like it. Nor buy it. And we don't have to shut up about it.

That's our culture.

Cuts both ways Hayashi-san.
Except most of us don't have any problem with it.
You missed my point I'm afraid. My point wasn't that he was offending our culture, it's that he insists that we accept his without regard to our own.

Putting it another way, Yes American Culture can be prudish. Yes, big titted girls is a bit of a thing in Japan. That's fine. Hell, go ahead and sell it in America, there are plenty of people here who like that sort of thing.

My problem is Hayashi's idea that people who don't like it can't complain about it because it's part of Japanese culture. We're supposed to accept it out of respect for his culture despite the fact it conflicts ours.

Personally, I'm ambivalent about the DOA series and breasts. I don't really care one way or another. However, I get irritated when people insist that their culture supersedes anyone others. If they didn't sell DOA in America, Americans would have no right to complain. They do sell it here, though, so we do have a right to complain.

Hayashi is in no way obligated to do anything about it, or even listen. But he doesn't have the right to tell us we can't complain about.

That make a little more sense?
It does make more sense, but Americans voice their disapproval by boycotting these companies. If there are a few news columns complaining about it but the companies are making major profit with it then these companies aren't going to give two flying farts what people say about them. I'm willing to bet this dude didn't even believe his 'its our culture' excuse, he just wanted something to shut the whiners up.

I didn't write the article, no. I just think that and you and people like you are taking far more offence to it than is necessary. The article is hardly attacking him. It's just raising the point that for some reason he felt the need to defend the game's content, despite the fact everybody knows what to expect from a DOA game by now.
And you're right. DOA is far from the only game with sexualised female characters - Soul Calibur springs to mind (not for all, but a few characters).

Instead of making stupid ass articles like this how about we appreciate the fact Team Ninja is even letting us have this game!!!!

Why do people have to make a big stank over it. It's just a video game, how many fighting games doesn't have half naked woman in them?
