>they don't watch mature anime for mature gentlemen
Because Japanese don't age like shit unlike westerns
And then menopause happen.
>tfw Ed started the series being made fun of by Winry for being a manlet
>end the series being an alpha male
Those shows run on a completely different basis than the usual 3 year high school anime. Either the series has a timeline set, then you should let your characters grow once in a while, or you're doing an endless series and only let your art style make them more mature as you become more crafted.
One Piece only had 6 months passed until the timeskip in which Luffy grow up quite a bit, mainly due to Oda's evolving style.
Bleach didn't have much time passing either iirc.
Naruto isn't that different until the timeskip, not even a year passing.
Who the fuck even cares about Fairy Tail.
The entire first half of One Piece takes place in like a few months at most
Then a two year timeskip where pretty much everyone clearly changes
Then it's only been like a few weeks after the timeskip
>3 or 4 years
Yes, you stupid motherfucker. Unless you are going for a hyper realistic style you should have a lot of trouble portraying the subtle changes that happen over such a short time span in cartoon form. Best you can do is change the hairdo and a few small details.
They didn't age. It was a time skip.
JJBA is at times even worse for this what with Jotaro reverse aging but everyone else who wasn't a vampire and in multiple parts aged appropriately.
Despite the manga being mostly shit (well, shit might be a bit harsh, it was a very standard shounen fighting fare), the characters in 666 Satan aged dramatically during their timeskip. Unlike the other Kishimoto brother's work where they all became taller and slightly fatter after their timeskip.
god don't remind me of that. everything that happened post time skip was so aggravating to me. I don't know if it was the dudes editor or pressure from the mag but man that series got fucked over hard.
I read it so long ago that I don't even fully remember what it's all even about. I distinctly remember there was one sad bit in it where...someone died and I remember the ending leaving me with feeling of "okay whatever then." I do clearly remember that the girls became much better after the time skip in terms of appearances at least.
I read it when I was an edgy teen and was hoping it was going to be 'cooler' based on the name. There was a fair bit of controversy in my reserved family when I order the first 3 Berserk volumes and my dad opened the first page with the demon fucking and just looked at me and said "is this what you read all day in your room?" To be fair he was right.
Now that I think about it Berserk is also a good example of aging in a manga. Aging and CHIN GETTING LARGER.
There's not too many shows that take place for more than a few years at best.
LoGH at least shows Reinhard and Julian looking manlier and more mature by the end of the series.
>some random gay pornstar, Dennis Leary and Willem Dafoe
> are they the same person guize
Man I would plow the living hell outta yui horie.
from what I remember the time skip pretty much mellowed everyone out but in a bad way. the main guy became a boring 'cool' character instead of a spunky hot head. the main female went from kinda silly and dumb to fuckin becoming the virgin mary. the sidekick character went from being a character who had to struggle to keep up with the main cast and the bad guys to just being in the background and being kinda useless over all. but hey he got to fuck an angel at least. The whole thing of the mc and love interest riding away on an ark to the moon was dumb as hell.
