Hey-ho ive been so confused, maybe you can help since you love him so much, but, why is lawer kara so???? He just looks??? insane???? And crazy and nervous and???????????
i’ve never heard of lawyer karamatsu in my life!
i’ve actually thought about this a lot hggk. i guess because this was one of the earliest examples of karamatsu’s character being wildly different and over the top? i mean you’ve got stuff like
and the fact he keeps getting carried away, rambling, talking excessively/quickly and zoning out (dreaming about holding hands with a girl for… i think it was 2 minutes).
and he tries to kill ichimatsu no less than 3 times.
for fanart it kinda evolved the way things normally do: one person changed the canon design a little, and it was like “woah! that looks nice!” and other people incorporated it until it was widespread. it was fun to over-exaggerate things fr the sake of a #look.png! the eye thing came from early pixiv fanart since… it just looked nice, it’s a common manga trope, and it’s running with the complementary colour thing.
HE’S ACTUALLY PRETTY NORMAL.. … just uh, pushed to an extreme.
