ITT: people complain about light armor being applied to an agile character. And a cat (usually the most agile race in fantasy) at that. Also apparently middriff is now enough to be "fanservice". Okay. Guess you need to tell that to a bunch of people in my area.

I am living for this new outfit
It doesn't look like armor, but its cute, so it's valid imo

I'm just glad that there is finally a reason behind why bare skin isn't immediately getting ripped to shreds in fights, the armor doesn't protect the wearer- it boosts the body part its equipped on's DEF stats, meaning you could wear a string for a bra and your whole torso acts like its a full chest-plate (..so long as said string has the equivalent stats). Now to figure out just where each "parts" limits are, 'glove' type items prob don't apply to the wrist since wrist type equips like bracelets would fill that slot, but then theres the matter of equips that act as multiple types of equips by locking the equip slot of its secondary type (like how a robe gets equipped on the chest slot but the pants slot gets locked), but those usually appear to cover what would would be in that slot visually so in this case Fran's armor most likely doesn't overlap any slots, in which case this gets a bit too complicated and makes me want to take the easy way out and say its prob a magic energy shield thingy created by the armor that stopped the dwarf from turning this manga into a ryona doujin.

The excuse isn't just maneuverability but also to feel the wind on one's skin. I think they are valid given most animals reject clothing being put on them in the first place and Fran is supposed to be more on the feral side (at least in the webnovel version she is).


I agree with Sword dad Fran looks adorable in everything and people shouldn't complain about it.

I am also saddened by the change in armor. Our little Fran is for cute and protecc. Hopefully her next equipment, whatever that is and whenever it comes, will be better in that regard. The maneuverability excuse is a pretty lame one. You can have clothes that aren't highly restrictive without... not having clothes.

Sure, her new "armor" is not so revealing that I would overreact if I saw it on a neighbourhood kid. It just doesn't look like armor at all, and I think her previous armor was cuter.

Ignore this dude, he doesn't have the finer sensibilities of us fine gentlemen.

Trying to stir up trouble and insulting others for their preferences in appearance and clothing is pretty lame... ¯\_(ใƒ„)_/¯

Have you ever seen a bra? Or do you even visit the outside?

You can buy sport tops on amazon like the ones Fran is wearing for pretty much all ages.

You guys are the only ones being creeps over a regular outfit.

It's not the belly button, it's the fact that her top is pretty much just a bra or the short skirt cut in the side to show her thighs, the entire outfit is designed to show off her body and the whole reasoning of "clothing restraints movements" is just a pathetic excuse to show more skin when she's just a child.

Going with such a reasoning, every armor upgrade will show more and more skin until eventually she will be wearing nothing but a bikini armor with a thin line of cloth.

You are the only perverts here for thinking thats a sexy armour. Seriously its only a belly button you prudes.
Avatar
I agree with Doting Sword Dad... sexy armor is not fitting for child! The bellybutton must be protecc!
Avatar
@Serkket - it's mostly because this armor is more "sexy" than cute, and Fran is supposed to be cute.
Avatar
Meh, here we go with fanservice armor, used on a child to make matters worse.
Sigh... lately it's getting harder to find manga without these types of perversion.

>hating on cute clothing
Sometimes I wonder why people bother to read manga and watch anime when they hate the stereotypes that come with most of it.

I also think her previous armor looked more convincing.

@lenteraneko
>How long till we see Fran in her god-tier bikini armor, hmm?
Not any time soon. At the moment WN translation was dropped (which is like 5 arcs ahead of manga) she is still wearing her Black Cat set.

> So the armor does not protect against harassment? ?
Her sword protects her against harassment.

I cant believe she got a worst outfit than before.

"Special protection" my ass, the author did it to pander/fanservice. Pandering to lolicons, the worst

I might have to drop this

That's up to you. I'm not even sure if the wn is still up but you can look for it. That said, if you do, be prepared for a long drought of nothing further. I mean, the wn is pretty dang good to read after all.
Avatar
@evlbb2 does that mean its better to wait from the manga and not recommended to read the translated wn/ln?

@Harvester thanks you very much
