JP lolis are soft and cuddly
yea and all one needs to do is scroll up and look at the examples of Bubbukas(?) work you posted and compare it to.... whatever the fuck Unteralterbach is doing
with Bubbukas they don't scream "I based this body off a real child" they are just like.... well anime characters. and my brain registers them as such, whereas the Unteralterbach is triggering my fight or flight as its to close to the real thing and is just creepy as shit
that's why I think there is a line. a line of abstraction. anime lolis are abstract enough to be detached from the IRL equivalent to the point you can't even call them the same thing. and it's a core part of why you can be into them and not be a pedo.
but if you don't make the work abstract enough... you walking into some dangerous territory
