/!\ Warning /!\
Please see this list of appearance editor sliders that work and dont work before you consider buying this head https://utilizator404.wordpress.com/2018/06/06/bento-for-dummies/

Also please note that since this head is rigged mesh, you cannot resize it separately from rigged mesh hair and it can look really weird with some hairs and fine with others. If your hair is not rigged, always scale it appropriately to have a good balance of face size and the size of the rest of the head.

This head is compatible with eyes, eyelashes and blush textures for the M3 heads, but M3 skin textures will not work because of a different UV map. Use the M3 retro loader for older eye/lash/blush texture mods.

======================================

The long awaited M4 Mars head is here! and now you can be a real anime man and not some boy with a beard drawn on with a marker !

- What is bento and why does it matter? -

For those of you who still dont really know what all this bento hype is about, Bento is a new set of bones that LL has recently implemented into the game, such as face bones, wing bones, tail bones, finger bones and some other bones. These bones are used to animate specific body parts such as the fingers on your hands or the expression of your face, and is what this head uses to animate its face.

The main advantage of using bento bones for anime heads is that there is no more need to have a bunch of invisible meshes for every face expression, using just one mesh to do every expression instead. This in turn greatly reduces the render weight of your avatar, on top of that, anyone can now make expressions and face animations, so you are no longer limited to what is in the HUD.

The disadvantage is that since the head is rigged, it can no longer be scaled and positioned, causing problems with how big your face looks with some of the hairs, and face expressions are sadly somewhat limited due to the way bento bones work, meaning some expressions are just not possible to make without looking really weird or deforming your face.

Good head with limited expressions

Posted March 26, 2021 by richterdeleon 3 stars

This is a good head. But the problem is that the expressions are limited. It claims to be bento rigged, but none of the bento expression huds that exist will interface with it, so it obviously uses a rigging that is different from other bento heads. And the expressions included in the hud are all very samey, with a very limited array of expressions, meaning you can't get 'rage' or 'glee' type expressions; You get the usual bland 'anime male' trope of a super limited range of emotion, none of them very intense. I would have loved for a sneer, a grimace, a wide smile or a mouth wide open frown.

Alright

Good head, works fine with Avatar 2.0 or Kuroo, but we need a neck sheath that fits Belleza Jake and Signature Gianni to actually look like a man and not a twink.

Both of these bodies are extremely popular among the populace, adding more anime mods to them would be great.
