im too tired rn to write a fully thought out post about it but i feel the need to put out there that i find the notion that big mom thinking pudding’s third eye is creepy is ridiculous…..to be ridiculous tbh
this is the person who has murdered her own kids, who consistently beats up one of them for looking like another one she hates, who claims to love all species but hates giants, who has a very odd and particular taste in things (like brook, for instance). big mom is a hypocrite and an asshole and operates entirely on whim and personal taste. i think it’s completely believable that she’d dislike pudding’s third eye.
not to mention i’ve seen the notion tossed around that there was no foreshadowing to she/pudding not liking pudding’s third eye, but that’s….simply not true. the whole assassination plan was based around pudding and big mom thinking pudding’s third eye is ugly and monstrous, since they intended to shock sanji with how “hideous” it is.
so yeah. idk. im not a fan of the twist myself but i don’t think big mom disliking pudding’s eye is at all ooc, nor do i think any of this came out of nowhere.
