Following is great news for the fans of the art style:

http://us.bladeandsoul.com/en/news/concerning_content.php

"

This is an exciting time for us as we can now use our official website, Twitter feed, and Facebook page to share information and provide status updates on the development of Blade & Soul® for Western audiences. We will use these platforms as a way to not only distribute official assets and information, but to directly address community concerns. With that in mind, we wanted to take a moment to shed some light on rumors that NCsoft West is censoring the content of Blade & Soul.

As you know, Blade & Soul features a rich, beautiful world inspired by the artistic style of Hyung-Tae Kim, an internationally renowned artist we consider ourselves fortunate to be working with. Hyung-Tae Kim brings with him a very recognizable and risqué anime style that, combined with the game's deep storyline and modern martial arts style combat, delivers a game experience like no other. Due to ESRB guidelines, however, our marketing material must abide by a different set of considerations than the final product. This is why Blade & Soul's rating is listed as "pending." It is NCsoft West's intention to accurately depict the game in its original, unaltered form, with only minor adjustments for gameplay considerations. In short: We are not planning to censor or alter the actual in-game content you have come to expect from an artist such as Hyung-Tae Kim and a studio such as Team Bloodlust. Rest assured that we love Blade & Soul as much as you do, and any modifications to the marketing material are not indicative of our plans for the final content. We appreciate your concern, and we hope that we've helped set your minds at ease. We're very excited about bringing Blade & Soul to Western audiences, and we intend to do our best to deliver the game you want to play. -- Blade & Soul Team, NCsoft West

For those who haven't watched this game:

This topic rose from the trailer that was released on the day of the western release's announcement.

In the trailer @  1:13

You can notice the wierd swimsuit on a bikini armor model and this alerted the fans.

good news for me.. the asian artystyle is generally my favorite as an avid anime fan.. TERA was a huge letdown to me but the story approach and being able to do things like grapple and throws and such in this games combat looks like a lot of fun.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Art styles are really different between male/female/environment. Kind of odd.

This is very good news. 

"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

It's not about male feminists, it's about character models. Boobs only dilute the character as a whole. Gigantic boobs take peoples attention away from the face of the character, making it just another model in the game. Almost every last character looks the same.

Same goes for women's armour. Huge breasts often mean that the armour has to be skin tight to avoid any clipping so it looks painted on. And that's assuming that they are actually wearing full armour and not some sort of magical bikini. These are all things that are counterproductive. People do not want their characters to look like prostitutes when they're high level. They want them to look strong and cool with unique armour sets. Having a slightly different and slightly thinner bikini doesn't create that sense of power.

 

Of course, some people like the oversized breasts. But most of those people have the mental capacity of a twelve year old. I think that the comment I heard the most here when those scarlet blade ads were running here was "I would have loved this game when I was twelve".

good.... actually very good. If they censor it, i will not play it.

 

If they censor it in America, they better allow me to log in on Korean server because i will not waste my money on games where the companies see American gamers as little defenceless girls that cant be exposed to anime g-strings and boobs with swords.

 

Hyung Tae Kim is an amazing artist and his work is Art, from every angle. We should be able to appreciate his unaltered designs, specially when money exchange hands. Give us the original or give us nothing.

The game tanked pretty hard in Korea - mainly due to severe lack of content (takes about 2-3 days to hit max level, and there are only 2 end-game dungeons.....)

Not sure what NCSoft was thinking, but they need a big content patch before they release it in US/EU.
