I think you might be better off going to Urban Dictionary for your answers to be honest.

Urban Dictionary will tell you so much more than you ever wanted to know.

Sometimes an innocent mind like TommyT's needs to be opened up to the real world.

An innocent mind? On this forum?

Sheer impossibility.

It's actually spelled thicc.

I knew I'd have to get involved in this eventually.

Apart from the obvious literal uses, I've only ever heard of thick being used to mean unintelligent. I think all Aprils have been intelligent, haven't they, although a couple of them have been slightly naÔve in their recklessness.

April needs to be more sexualized, I'm sure most would agree when they aren't trying to get +1 progressive points on internet comment sections.




2014 did it right

Yeah, I figured the responses were mostly cagey, men have been shamed into silence.

Okay, I really didn't want to get involved in this but these are some pretty bad takes. I'm fine with some fan service as long as it makes sense and it's not in there for the sole purpose of giving dudes something to look at, as the latter alone tells me the show/movie/comic/whatever doesn't have much confidence in what they're doing. April being sexualized would be both. Not to mention the fact that, Jesus Christ guys, it's a kids property. I know a lot of you want to go back to the Mirage days, but until that actually happens, let's tone it down, alright?

Just have the next iteration of TMNT yoink the designs of Fujiko Mine from Lupin III like the FW show did, and you got your desired sexy April.

Idk, we haven't ever seen a particularly ugly April. I always considered she should be at least somewhat attractive, even as an average everyday look since obviously that's one of the things that catches Casey's eye. Even in the 2K3 where the women were given toned down figures and at times broad shoulders (even Tenet fell into this), April wasn't what I would call ugly.

Fujiko was a bit too aware of her sexual charms. I think April being oblivious is part of the appeal.

Designs could pull from Holly Would, or for a more contemporary look

She was attractive but not overtly because of course it was aimed at kids. I was okay with that. I never saw a romance between her and the TMNT, more as you say a big sister. It's really the fan art over the years that has exaggerated FW April and made her more sexualised.

I feels sorry for the day when proper English disappears and all we're left with is text speak and Urban Dictionary language. I mean WTF?!

I long for the day that April is cosplayed well. Often it's the larger ladies getting in her jumpsuit.
