Their characteristics are evocative of their personalities and all very distinct from each other. Strong tones and accented features cause their character to 'pop' when they take action. They're defined strongly enough across the board that you can remember them without having to default to a particular trait, like hairstyle.

For me, a great test is to see if you can identify the character if you shoop out their hair. A generic design would have something akin to everyone having the same face but with superficial differences that are easily swappable.

I can't decide what I like better in this pic: Yin or Mao.

Yin has her hair down, showing an air of relaxation and a casualness that she was not afforded during the show. She is dressed as if though for a date, intimately showing off more skin than her usual dress, but still keeping it tasteful and not overly-provocative; it's playful but not slutty. Most impressively is that it appears like an all-new outfit but is also viewed as a thematically modified version of her usual funeral clothing, giving a great mix of new and old.

On the other hand, Mao has a hat.
