One Piece 801
Fuck all happened so Imma gripe.
I think Oda is mostly a good artist, but his character designs have never been great outside some exceptions, and the issue only grew larger as the series went on, especially with women and larger characters. The anime very rarely bothers to improve on this, and mostly just doubles down. And then you have the main character Luffy and Gear Fourth.
Guys, Gear Fourth looks so goddamn lame. I'm sorry. I love the power and moveset of it and I think its the natural evolution of Gear Second and Third but WHY does he gotta look like that. In the manga it looks better -
But I just dont like it at all. And no I'm not an idiot, I know its supposed to resemble Fujin/Raijin mixed with a gorilla, thus the name of attacks being called "King Kong Gun" and such.
I know what its going for but I dont like it. I dont like how when hes in the normal stance he touches the ground and cant control bouncing either, it just looks dumb. Now the actual attacks being drawn into his body to slingshot out or bouncing off walls 100 times look fine. Ill just never get over how Gear Fourth looks.
