Disclaimer: This is a way too hot take I only partially agree with in the first place that's been bugging the hell out of me since yesterday but fuck it I'm gonna shoot from the hip here Honestly I'm legit surprised nobody's tried to call out Ikumi for basically going the whole hog regarding self orientalization. Like during that whole presentation I was kinda uncomfortable at how she was basically performatively doing all this dumb "kawaii anime bullshit". She's basically playing into all of the stereotypes that that NYT article brought up to make herself a meme and honestly that's kinda fucked up. (Honestly I'll admit I'm probably way more cynical about everything during that entire Bethesda presentation because everything that wasn't Doom or Youngblood was either a CG trailer with no gameplay (Deathloop and Ghostwire) or a clown car pileup (Fallout 76, Keen Mobile and the rest) but you know what I'm pissed for unrelated reasons and feel like getting into some angry discourse right now tbh)
