Am I the only one who hates the art in this?

Are you saying that Europeans have huge foreheads?

No, I believe he's saying that the art has a European feel to it. Big foreheads are irrelevant. I think you are probably making a joke though, so I apologize.Last modified on 2012-08-12 at 00:50

And a lot of the clothes and hairstyles he designs for his characters aren't exactly "japanese" either, so...

Boy, I stop going to VNDB for a few days and look at what happens - someone starts an Oyari Ashito thread (even if it is negative...)

Yeah, Ashito's art is a love-it-or-hate-it kind of thing (although it sounds like people can come to love it too). Yes, it is rather exaggerated and stylized, especially the slimness of the characters and the foreheads - hell, one of his early doujinshi collections was called "Odeko Style" (odeko = forehead or big forehead). But I feel people are looking unkindly on Period particularly because of the size of Yukina's forehead, and even the game makes fun of that.

Actually, I feel his art style has been gradually changing too. Just look at the difference between Period and the fandisk, particularly in some CGs of Rin (unless it's because the fandisk had different artists - I know he's the character designer and director for his games, but I don't think he does all the character art himself). Just like the Littlewitch games changed from FFDs to standard ADVs, Ashito's style is probably changing a little into something people consider more mainstream. Not necessarily that different stylistically, just more polished. Unlike the move to ADVs (I don't think any Littlewitch game after Romanesque got any serious attention, which is a shame - they're still damn good), people probably consider this a good thing. I'll continue to love both his old and new art, and I hope he finds success with Tenco.

I didn't like the art at first.. but as the story went on, I kind of started liking it..

And I think the art does become better as the story progresses, like when you start getting into that route, the girl starts to look better.
