This one's a no-brainer unless you have a serious obsession with pretty boys  :P

Quesion for those who prefer Simon's CVII look: if for example Kojima would draw an accurate depiction of him in that outfit, still with the blonde hair and still with a bit of a rugged face, but also done in her style, would you still like it or would you say that the design is ruined? Personally, if she or another artist like Masaki were to do that I would like the design a lot better.

If Kojima could pull it off and do an image of CVII Simon without making him androgynous, and his body was to scale (unlike CoD Trevor) then I'd like to see it done. But to get her to come out of her comfort zone might be a bit too much of a challenge for her. In the end I don't feel that she would be able to do it.

Hard to say. 

I'm not sure she could do that. 

Anyway, I'm all for oldschool Simon.

I think she already addressed those concerns with her Harmony of Despair art IMO.

Voted for anime style but I guess we are the minority.
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

You wanna know what Simon's real anime look is? An anime style that keeps him manly and badass without making him look like a transvestite?
