    The Elite Beat Agents seem to portray the celebrity/island girls, as very hoish and using their feminity and sexual appeal to get whatever they want. Bouncing breasts and blowing kisses to wild animals, like I assume they do the same to get what they want with men. I do get this is a take a Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, however what's even worse if the Elite Beat Divas. They have crotch and assless chaps in which they bend over and shake their tush. It's more evident in their over sexual nature in other game play videos. They are much more like a stripper and similiar to Jessica Alba's character in Sin City.

    While Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan seems to have typical cheerleaders which really don't be be any more overtly sexual than you'd expect. The outfits are not really any more revealing than you'd see on the NFL cheerleaders. Also, their moves are more realistic based off of real cheerleading. As opposed to the grinding and other overtly sexual moves of their American counterparts.

    So, is this a perception of the Japanese on American women perhaps? Assuming I ever get good enough to get to the hardest difficulty with the Elite Beat Divas I don't think i'll ever attempt their play through. It's just not really appealing to me, and it's just overtly sexual and unnecessary. Anyone else a little bothered by this?

    Can it be any worse than American views of Asian women?

    The EB Divas are actually a little disappointing. Far as I can tell, they use the same dance animation for every song, while the EBA has special moves depending on the stage. And their game is basically Agent Chieftan with less warning before you have to tap.

    I see no problem with slutty, half-naked, gyrating video game chicks, and neither should you.

    Have you seen how some girls dress? Are you honestly surprised that this could be their perception?

    Sounds right on the money to me. Are you telling me that's NOT how American women act? Because TV says otherwise, and I've known TV for a lot longer than I've known you.
