I never said they weren't faithful to the original.
However I think there is no need to explain how some amount of fanservice appeared a lot less in your face in a 2d game than in a 3d high definition game. And yes, even though it is being faithful to the original, the transition to 3d and hd and cutscenes makes it appear different in that respect from the source material. I know it seems counter intuitive that something being faithful to another representation of itself ends up making it feel different in the end, but that's not a first (Link's Awakening out of the top of my head) and that's what transitionning to another "vocabulary" so to speak can do. So my point is not that's it is not faithful, my point is that it should have been less faithful in that regard. Also I know it is faithful to the original artwork, but the fact remains that the original artwork was never ingame so the impact of said artwork on the tamosphere of the game was minimal.
I think it is a possibility that this whole point was why they opted for classier artwork with Legend of Mana or more recent titles because they knew more prevalent artwork, or even 3d models would appear different if they kept the very shounen 101 look Seiken 2 and 3 had.
Anyway, of course it is a personaI point of view, I am being subjective and of course the fact that I don't like fanservice makes my criticizm harsher. As to your last sentence, i'm not even sure, are you an elitist or something ? There is no such thing as an adequate way to appreciate art. You can judge I'm being unreasonable in my way of seeing things all you want but it's very different from just flat out saying I don't have the ability to critique something lol.
