Something I've Noticed...

current mood: weird

This is something rather odd I've noticed about the Saito/Hub fandom, actually of the Rockman.exe fandom as a whole.
There is almost no Saito fanart in the English-speaking fandom. Not even as helmetless Rockman.exe(which everyone considers as Saito anyway, especially if his hair is brown).
However, if you ever go and look around Japanese Rockman.exe fansites...
There's plenty. 0_o There's really a lot out there, and even most of the stuff that could be considered shounen-ai is very light.
I suppose there's just more Saito fans over there than here, but still...

Weird. Maybe people just don't exactly know how to draw Saito in the first place. 0_o

Errrr, Hoshi, that makes no sense, if they couldn't draw his human form, they could just draw helmetless Rock, so I doubt that's it.

Hoshi, do you mean like they don't know how to draw his hairstyle?
Because I've been seeing that one hairstyle for years, I think the Japanese Rockman community got a look at Saito's hairstyle long before EXE5.
I recall seeing once on a Japanese website where it looked like the webmaster had gone to something that looked like a Rockman 15th anniversary fair/convention.
Anyway, this fair was official, sponsored by Capcom and all, and there was a display with some rough concept art they must have gone on. On that wall was one particular drawing.
It was definently Saito. Helmetless Rock with brown hair. The hairstyle was almost exactly the same as on the e-reader card and in EXE5, however the concept art was a bit rough, as I said, what I mean by that is that it's not as great a quality as the usual art, which makes sense. The only difference really was that his forehead was a bit...more noticable. XD

Oh, and just so you know this fair was probably somewhere around the release of EXE2. Capcom has decided some things long before most people think they do.

I wish LiveJournal would let us edit our own comments. >_
