Any Good JRPGs That Don't Feature...

As far as I know in those series the main cast of characters are all around aged 16+, so they are not kids, more like teens or young adults. Only exception I can think of is Rorona in Atelier Meruru, after she used the potion of youth she looks like a 8 year old kid or so. Besides, if you don't want a "kid" in your party there are older playable characters too like Sterk and Esty (around 30-40 years old) and Gio (around 60 year old).

In Disgaea games, it's more the chibi art style that makes the characters look younger than they are. You can create your own characters anyway if you want "older" looking characters but even so as avatars it's natural that the characters will look younger. Story mode just lasts a few hours anyway and there is no nudity as far as I know, Disgaea games is all about grinding to insane levels anyway.

Only games I can think of that are mostly about loli fanservice are Mugen Souls (which got censored by the way) and maybe Hyperdimension Neptunia games (Characters are around 14 year old I think).


Haven't played Mugen Souls so can't tell, but from the 20 hours (so far) I've spent in Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 I believe I can safely say the fanservice isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Not that there is no fanservice at all, but I've seen way worse (I don't like most forms of fanservice - I tolerate it though, because when judging a game I judge the overall of it, not just what I dislike about it).
Also, they usually have dialogues going on which I'm finding pretty funny and make it somewhat enjoyable.


HDN isn't bad at all :/ aside from the first like 5 minutes of MK2 it's really tame by any standards. Just ignorant NA fanboys trying to sensationalize everything. And Mugen souls is more "perverted" than anything but that's kinda a huge aspect of the game so it only makes sense O_o.

And ya the dialogue in the HDN games is brilliant. Listening to all the CPUs bashing the others systems was one of the greatest things ever done haha.

Just hearing "well who'd want your system anyway? It's just a giant red ring" as the insult to the Xbox was priceless.

TC obviously missed the boat on Vagrant Story back when it came out. The poor sales of that game lead to Square being reluctant to ever release another game starring anyone but a young male protagonist.

Ahahahaha, yes, the RROD reference alone made the game a worthwhile purchase.
And I wasn't trying to imply HDN was bad, only that people make it sound like the fanservice is way over the top when it isn't.

but yeah... the first game has interesting game mechanics that end up falling short... i haven't finished it yet... the events and situations are really all you play the game for anyways.... not really about the gameplay.

Oh ya. That was just the line I always remembered from the scene XD. Then again that game had so many awesome 1 liners. "it's on like monkey kong" is still my most used though haha.

If you want to play JRPGs for the most part you'll have to put up with variety. The subgenre isn't as stale as its western counterpart.

Only Disgaea 1 has the whole kid crew and Disgaea 3 has kid MC and rival but most of the cast is adulst. in Disgaea 2 you are manly hero who fights evil and in Disgaea 4 there are all adults with the exception of fukka.
