Hey guys! Are you ready to see the amazing set of facial expressions as shown by Azuma of Cross Game? Get ready for a barrage of screencaps…
…I think you get my point.
I mean, lets compare Cross Game to Spice and Wolf for a second. Craft Lawrence has about 5 million different facial expressions and Horo has twice that when you factor in her ears. Those two can carry out an entire meaningful conversation while the voice actors are off drinking tea. On the other hand, each character in Cross Game has a set of 4 facial expressions: Happy, Confused, Angry and the Default Blank Face which basically means ‘figure it out for yourself’.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually really like Cross Game. But please nobody say that the artwork is ‘charming’ or ‘surprisingly effective’. This is 2009, this is just plain bad.
