“There are a lot of flashback scenes in One Piece, but that’s because there is a special feeling I want to convey through them. I’d like to think that by showing you the characters when they were children, they could become like your childhood friends. […] As you watch over their growth like this, I feel that a deep bond has been formed between all of you and Luffy and his friends.” - Oda Eiichiro
Do you think it's kinda weird that even though the characters in Villainous don't TECHNICALLY have good designs, while that kind of thing destroys other cartoons, in this one, it seems to work in its favor? Like, they look ridiculous, over the top, and crazy, but that feels like exactly what they're supposed to look like.
