For those of us who love anime, we couldn't disagree with you more.

It's better to be thought of as a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

I'm not an anime or manga fan, particularly, I think it's a gorgeous art style, though.

However. Aion is a hybrid game. It contains both eastern and western influences. And This post isn't about the art style, it's about the lore and the story behind, and within the game

I like the story alot, and I'm glad to see that there will be a game like this, that will have a heavy emphesis on Story & Lore.

I can't wait for Aion! It's coming in 2009!

Looking foreward to Aion as well.

And the artstyle seems to be very good in this game.

I've stayed away from eastern mmo's in the past. But this sounds like it will be the first one for me. So I can't see anything bad about them sticking to the same artstyle.

But think about it then. Aren't we here in the west just copying the same artstyles more or less all the time too?

War, wow, eq, guild wars.... all the same in my eyes. Sure a few small pixels are different. But its 99% the same artwise...

This game looks like it could have broad appeal. I like the art direction of eastern MMOs, but the games generally lack depth compared to western games. This looks like it could be a really good blend, the best of both worlds.

Western MMO's and depth?

I believe that is just how we want it to be :p
I'm still searching for that game with depth, and has yet to find one :p
