I think we're forgetting that what she wears is the standard for all dark mages, male and female. My feeling is that when Tharja joined the ranks she just took what she was given to wear without any questions. Not in the oblivious/infantilized way but more like "whatever, just give me my damn uniform so I can get to cursing people".

The issue with that theory is that the other dark mage, Henry, gets his own personalized, modest outfit while Tharja... doesn't customize her own outfit to something she would personally feel more comfortable wearing.

Even if you subscribe to the idea that she chose to not question her uniform, the way Summer Scramble presents comes off more as "My clothes are... revealing? OHGODOHGODOHGOD I'M SO EMBARRASSED I COULD JUST DIEEEE!!!" which is more in line with what you see in anime fanservice.

Since Summer Scramble is a fanservice chapter, I'd say it's more likely the writers were going for the typical cutesy oblivious, sorta infantilized approach for Tharja's character than the "idk what the damn uniform looks like just wanna curse people" approach.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I think re: SS. I count it as optional canon because while we do get some amazing convos and development (Henry and Gaius, Sumia and Lissa, Ricken and Chrom, Panne and Nowi) there's also a lot of character exaggeration gags thrown in solely for titillation of fans. Like how most of the Harvest Scramble convos with the kids are thought-provoking and character-based and then we get Gerome/Inigo with the ~strong firm touch~.

So yeah, I'd say SS's rendition of Tharja and her outfit is just for fanservice and in the actual game she just took what she was given since it's never actually brought up in support convos or event tiles or anything.

(I also find it amusing how only Gauis escapes the flaily fanservice treatment out of the four swimsuit winners. Too busy worrying about his stash to be embarrassed. XD)
