said: Don't you feel like Takei is getting lazier than before? I don't have any proof tbh but idk.... his style, the drawings in general... it's so different from before. idk I'm just being picky here. I'm sorry for bothering you!! Take care : )
Not so much lazy as tired.
Can we all agree his KZB style was boss? Yes? Okay. Well, when he was doing that, it was the only “series” he had going. Then he started Ultimo, then came Jumbor, then Danball, now Flowers, plus Shaman King Remix. The dude is currently doing more work in a week than most weekly mangaka, so it’s understandable that his drawing would suffer.
I mean, think about school papers. When you have only one paper to do, it turns out pretty well, right? But when you have three? No, you just want to get that shit done. As long as it makes sense then cool, but you’re not going for a Pulitzer prize or anything.
But yeah, his style has suffered greatly since 2008. It’s a shame since it really was his best IMHO.
Ugh I can only imagine what Ren will look like in Flowers with Takei’s current derp style.
EDIT: I ALSO FORGOT TO SAY THIS: It bothers me more that you think you’re bothering me by asking a question than the fact that you’re taking time out of you day to ask me said question. You don’t need to be sorry! I love answering questions ;_;
Plus dude you and I go way back to LJ, don’t even pretend you’re some random tumblr person. You could freaking blackmail me with all the dirt you probably have. =3=
omg! How nice!! Thank you really much, Jezzy!! That edit stole me a HUGE smile and aaah ~ Thank you! (I’m smiling like an idiot you know? aaah that really made me happyhappyhaapppppyyyyyy)
Oh, sorry! I didn’t consider the fact he’s doing more than one series at this moment.
Sigh/ But like you, I miss the “2008-style”. It was pretty neat.
You know? To be even more honest… I think that my main problem is that I still can’t get into flowers the way I thought I was going to be.
I have huge issues with ‘the main plot’ and at this point I’m not seeing the light. lol.
I know Flowers doesn’t have more than 2 years, but idk, I feel like I’m following this to see the old guys and yeah when the hell Is Ren going to appear, and HoroHoro and Anna… damn it it’s been so long
said: Hana was born when Yoh fought Ren in the prelims... BUT... -cries- Takei why...

Note: This was a request. I know nothing about Shaman King. I apologise in advance for any incorrect characterisation or other errors.
I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
Rant on the read more
Added a Read More cause spoilers
Moar random spoiler-ish rants (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
I don’t know about you guys, but my strategy’s to smile and think “Yosuke’s magic cards did it” every time something sounds messed up.
I’m not completely surprised tbh.
Flowers was a huge mess even before it came out lol.
But yeah, it makes me really sad now. I really love Jeanne….
And the siblings? They were my fav characters on shaman king and now all of this is just so fucked up…
Same with Tamao. I’ll never get used to her now. never.
I guess I’ll just wait for more idk, Things can’t be just like that
said: CAN I JUST SAY ANIME JESUS REMINDS ME OF ADULT YOH AND I KNOW IT'S THE HAIR...
SOMEWHERE AT WAR
Totally the main reason I don’t quite like adult Yoh’s design
The Japanese fandom calls him “wakame head”
I SEE THIS HAPPENING
Whoever watched Shaman King should understand why these are so priceless
You can hate on the anime all you want but at least it could actually show Anna being capable of emoting other than anger and flat affect.
