Someone find the manga Ryuuroden.

I think Yugi looks better later on. Integra looks the worst though. I mean. holy shit she looks bad later on.

For Arale, it is probably because he wanted to make her more appealing and cuter. In the first chapter Arale isn't the intended main character so he probably didn't put as much thought into drawing her as later.

Wow I can't believe there was a time where Shinchan looked somewhat normal?

80s --> 90s

Sometimes it's hard to remember that at one point Jotaro's hat was a separate object and not a part of his head.
>>
>>123112257
I actually prefer newer looking Kenshin. I'm not a fan of that fluffy hair and I like how clean and angular the art is in the 90's
>>
>>123112011
I think most of them actually look better later, except in the case of Arale and Integra.

She can always swap back to her older bodies. She's a robot.

It's called iconic.

>Oh Great
Why can't this guy just draw manga for a better storywriter instead of writing his own stuff? I mean, he has good ideas but he can't execute them for shit and his stories always get convoluted and retarded by the time half of the manga is written.

>>123112489

He's working for a writer now. Check out Biorg Trinity.

It's still confusing

>>123111787

to be fair

their "after" images does look older as well

>>123112183
Really part 4 is the one that changed the most internally.

Look I'm glad the MC ended up with Ringo and the small female bromance between her and that tuner chick was pretty sweet but other then that I can't really say that I cared about the plot as a whole. I just wanted to see all the loose ends tied up by the time I was two thirds done with it.

to think there was a time they were skinny

>>123112663
I really wish he ended up with Simca though. A shame her chances fell to 0 when she went katawa shoujo.
You gotta give it to Oh Great that he actually tied all the loose ends by the end, which is more than what can be said for a lot of manga (Fuck you Mär)
>>
>>123112624
can't really call it progression since the artstyle shift depending on his mood/the mood of the mangaka
>>
>>123112734
>Simca
Dude why would you like her? That chick was an NTRing whore.
>>
>>123112577
What the hell did I just look at? It looks like Oh Great is trying to copy Bakuman.

Mangaka seemed to have worked under gag mangakas that focused on janky motions and angular figures early on.

Now they are a lot baby-faced, but still retain some of the unapologetic toilet humor aspect.

Hitoha got especially cute tho

I will always prefer the soft fluffy texture of the 80s.

In my example, the actual monster and suit designs don't actually change.
>>
>>123113116
To be fair sometimes the softer look works better with that particular artwork then others. For example, just look at Rumiko's art of Ranma and Lum. The her new angular and simplified style looks like horseshit.
>>
Does anyone have the Vinland Saga/Askeladd one?
>>
I just google'd Bleach comparison and got this.

By far the superior choise of the 3 coming through. Fuck even Simca was better than Ringo.

>>123112489
>>123112734
Besides the awesome art and the radical character design, I also love the fact that Oh!Great didn't leave side characters in the side to rot forever and actually developed them and they were interesting.
>>
>>123113586
I really fucking miss the old style.
>>
>>123113672
Males look better in the new style. Rukia and Orihime are much better in the old one.
>>
>>123113751
I don't like the males in the new style, everyone has thin eyes and long, flat faces. And everyone's hair just seemed livelier.
>>
>>123113751
I'd say the reverse is true.
>>
>>
>>123113751
Honestly, I just want almost everyone to not share faces.

Holy shit Orihime looked so much better. The old style definitely looked more shonen-y, less longface too.
>>
>>123113845
First one is "how to draw manga" books level of horrible, goddamn.
>>
>>123113964
Guts had a hard life.
>>
>>123113992
Where do you think the people who made those books learned to draw?
>>
>>123113586
Leave it to Kubo to actually get WORSE at drawing with practice.

He's covered with scars now as well.
>>
>>123114017
Technically his newer style is more well-defined and clean in a sense. But the older style actually had more oomph and character to it, really did make Ichigo resemble his 'thuggish' appearance or Orihime her overly-innocent self.

It's kind of like how the old Naruto manga art was pretty terrible but at least was a helluva lot more expressive compared to when Kishimoto literally started copying the anime's cleaner style and then everyone suffered much more bland faces as a result.
