Hi, it’s me, Ana. The person behind the screen wrote this article. As a cultist at Polygon, I’m no stranger to making excuses and dissecting fandoms. In the past, I have covered topics like Mario cum pipe memes and Sonic characters go to the mall. But now, The Genshin effect The fandom has given me the opportunity – no, the honor – to inform you of news we might see an inch of Albedo’s thigh between tailored shorts and thigh-high boots.
The blonde, ponytailed swordsman was known for his artistic abilities as well as his research skills as an alchemist. Albedo appeared in the game wear high boots, long socks and shorts. Usually, his socks cover the skin between his shorts and his boots. But on Saturday, Hoyoverse posted the official piece on their Bilibili account to celebrate reaching 13 million followers. The work shows the alchemist sitting on a sofa without socks, thus exposing every inch of that skin.
That’s it. That’s news. But the fandom responded to every inch of flesh with an insatiable thirst. Albedo trended on Twitter on Monday, and his name surpassed 27,000 tweets online as fans posted new artwork, collages and even memes about his thighs.
Some also mocked fans’ reactions with cute memes. One Redditor likened the response for a Victorian man to see his ankle, for all this thirst comes from an inch of skin.
The intensity of the reaction is ironic since Hoyoverse dropped a lot of (supposedly) bigger news over the weekend. The developer held a live stream on Saturday reveal a lot of new information have a relationship with Genshin Impact’s Big new Sumeru update, will introduce a new region, new characters, and a new elemental power, among other additions. But Honesty? God damn it. Because all that news paled in comparison to Albedo’s thighs.
One can’t help but feel that Hoyoverse has a sense of what they’re doing, because this isn’t the first time the company has released fan art with a similar reaction. Just last month, the company share art on catalyst Anemo Shikanoin Heizou depicts a scene of a detective sitting on a tree, blushing, mouth open. A few weeks before that, we had ‘s birthday art The kid showed him with his jacket unbuttonedthis once again fueled the desire of the community.
Now all we need is for Hoyoverse to bring back Albedo’s banner so we can all wish for him.
