It's a pairing? I thought it was just based off of what happens in the original between those two.



Although I don't mind the pairing itself, at least as far as sidestories and/or tangents go.

Japanese peaople are short.

Well, why the genderbent males needs to be so much taller then they? Yuuki should be more or last as tall as Itsuki, since both are different bishonen steriotype.

Haruki could be taller os shorter, but, as I said, the "perfect guy" Ryou should be taller then Yuuki, at last.

I agree, Kyonko being as short as Mikuru is too much. Being like Yuki would be better. But not much taler. And Itsuko must be like Ryouko right?

I agree with both statements. I think Haruki would work not being the taller, but it makes sense, anyway.

It's not as pretty as it should be, the person that originally uploaded this had it (probably accidentally) resized.

Hey, I thought Ayu was ridiculously short too, before I saw the chart and realized that Yuichi is actually ridiculously huge. Looks like Ayu doesn't touch the 155, though.

I have tried arguing this point several times... it doesn't go anywhere, believe me.

*e* You think you could put that chart in spoiler tags or something, Joe? It's breaking the forum for me.

The older generations skew the overall national average downward, but I found it not at all uncommon to see guys near or past 6'.

Granted, I spent much more time in Korea than in Japan, and apparently the average height of 19-year-old guys there is 3cm taller for some reason.

All posting that did was make it look even more ridiculous to have Haruki and Yuuki taller than Itsuki.

*e* And can we please get off this discussion thing? This is the image thread.

Yuuki is just under six feet. And ussually he doesn't stand out. He's sitting down

I could see Yuuki not really drawing allot of attention. Most of the time he sits down reading, so he's not gonna really stick out. Most of the time when he goes somewhere it's with Haruki who immediately grabs everyone attention.

It was figured with Haruki at least, is that it wouldn't make sense for him to not get his ass kicked for acting like a weirdo unless he happened to be bigger than everyone. So we made Haruki bigger than everyone.

I suppose it could also be trying to play up the one head taller trope.

Should we go to the genderbent tread then? We are doing a bishoujo game now, so having this infformations would be usefull.

Well, I am more or less as tall as Haruki (from the FAQ) and I am far from being the tallest guy alround. So, as far as I am conserned japonese people are short

Ok, but 15 cm taller the the adult avarage isn't too much? He is just 16 so I guess he is still growing.
And 34 cm are just one Head taller?

Well, without the standard deviation value (which wasn't provided, or if it was it's hidden in a file I can't open at the moment), it doesn't rule it out. And I maintain that I'm 6'2", and could stand in a mens' dorm cafeteria lunchline in Korea (which is, statistically, not all that far off from Japan), and have probably 1/5th-1/4th of the students there at roughly the same height as me. Therefore, based on firsthand observation, I have no problem with the concept of a taller-than-Itsuki Yuuki.

I was posting images. But it's all because the artists have formed a pact to entallen the Nagato.

Somewhat. Still, it was the only one I found that gave its own centimeter values, so I included it anyway. Of the full-standing height comparisons, I find that most of them still decide that Yuuki is taller than Haruki, even if only by a small amount. This one, for example, is probably more average-y:

I like this one. The diferences are realistic.

I have no problem with Yuuki being taller. Haruki is "bigger" because he talks laud and people pay atention. Still, Ryou should be even taller (and Tsuruya too, maybe). But they shouldn't be as tall as it is on the FAQ.

And... Mitsuuru is shorter than Itsuko there... amusing...

Also, midget Kyonko is hilarious.

It's not actually that tall. It's roughly the height between Itsuki and Mikuru in the height line up.


...and I'd like to point out that a "centimeter" is not a consistent height as you bounce from character to character on that chart.

I prefer non pedo bait midget Kyonko.

I didn't understand. You are talking about what statement? Itsuki is 26 cm taller than Mikuru, this is way more then 15cm or less then 34cm. And he is more than a head taller then Mikuru. So, if Kyonko has the same height and both Yuuki and Haruki are taller tehn Itsuki...

Oh, well, we can only work with that.

We realy shouldn't go to the other tread?

I'd much rather have fanart of them in uniforms from the Star Trek movie.

Haruki - gold (command)
Yuuki - blue (science)
Mitsuru - redshirt (Haruki said so)
Kyonko - red miniskirt (communications)
Itsuko - blue miniskirt (nurse)

How many times are we going to argue about their height, anyway?

Everything's been sussed out in the genderbending thread for months now...
