Generally its proportions more than anything, but cleavage, thighhighs or an exposed midriff greatly helps.
Also even though I draw with a cartooney cel-shaded look, I prefer more 3D, painterly styles, like that chun-li from the other day:
Just look at how “solid” and believable her stomach looks mmmmmm. And yet overall it’s still cute and stylised and manages to maintain a certain element of cartooney/idealised proportions, especially facially, which is not realistic in much capacity at all.
As an extra thing, I usually like something inbetween unrealistic circle boobs and totally realistic boobs. Like my preference of size is much bigger on animu than it is in real life, since animu boobs get away with being perfect shape at all times regardless of size. As an odd thing, what looks perfectly normal and sexy to me in real life (like the way my preference of RL boobs tend to go near-completely flat when a girl is lying on her back) looks unattractive to me in anime and needs a bit of exaggeration or gravity-defying to look appealing artistically. Not TOO much, just enough that it doesn’t tip the scales of believability.
It might be easier to list the things that turn me off though:
When really curvy characters with a good bit of meat on their legs are given a thighgap. What is so unsexy about legs touching a bit or not seeing the vagoo area? And when a thigh gap looks fine, it can be ruined by them insisting on drawing the buttcheeks hanging down out back even if you wouldn’t see it at that angle. Unfortunately the pic above is actually an example of this, for shame.
Obviously my weird inexplicable dislike of buttons and nostrils makes me extra fussy over anything containing them. Only a golden few have made it into my animu folder due to excelling in other areas.
Anything where the girl is made to look overly innocent or even scared/unhappy to be in a sexual/pin-uppy state. Comes across as unnervingly rapey and idealises the idea of having sex with someone who hasn’t had sex before too much for my liking.
Uhh… I should get on with productive things before I spend like half an hour writing an essay lol.

in the 1940s the word “boner” used to mean “huge mistake” and it still pretty much means that
how the fuck would you know that
because i know things
i read these to my dad and he literally fell off his chair laughing and is now purple in the face
I first saw the Joker’s boner thing on Superdickery about half a decade ago at least and it still makes me chuckle like a loon every time I read them.

Maaan I was so close but due to other stuff I don’t think I’ll finish the Kay comic until after I get back from holiday. Oh well. Only had 2 or 3 pages to go too!
- Give us a pink piece to start with on new puzzles, if everyone in my area got blue pieces how the hell am I supposed to finish it
- Alternatively let us buy Pink pieces with Play Coins for a high price
- Make encounters with online players count as proper streetpasses we don’t all live in cities
- Let us re-order Miis before entering Streetpass Quest (Find Mii) because having several high level people in a row before your white Mii to brighten a dark room is very annoying
- Increase the 10 play coins per day limit
- Increase the 10 play coins per day limit

Still slowly making my way through replaying BioShock Infinite. I don’t know whether it’s the fact that I’m playing on Easy or the fact that I know how long each area is now, but I’m getting what I like to call the “Ravenholm” effect here, a term I coined for personal usage after being surprised how short Ravenholm in HL2 is once you know where to go, compared to how long and horrifyingly intimidating it is first time. Hall of Heroes for example I remember dragging on but it really wasn’t that long at all this time.
ALSO I figured why not get an achievement or two, and as such have been putting all my Upgrades into Salt Capacity to get the one for fully upgrading a particular thing.
If you ever decide to play again DO THIS like holy shit. The combat is like twice as fun when you’re not rationing your vigors all the time.
Tagging this as non-spoiler to give the advice to first time players too. Like depending on difficulty you’ll want to put some into Health and Shield too but focus on Salts for sure if you want fun gameplay.
