Akio Watanabe

What's your opinion on Akio Watanabe's character designs? I think they're very sexy.

I liked the bandaid in Shinobu's you-know-where

His designs are great and always have been. Do wish his pre-Monogatari designs would pop up more often though.

The quintessential moe design

He used to be better in the 2000s but I like to see he still knows what's good.

His designs peaked with The Soultaker and I'm waiting for him to do designs for another show with a similar aesthetic.

do zoomers really?

I bet if he was the character designer for Komugi R, it could be been less of a flop

I found out he did sakura porn, so fucking based

I just want more popotan...

>This will never be translated

They are indeed sexy, cute and appealing. His art still retains some that old-school 2000s charm even now.

In an interview a while back, he said that Tatsuya Egawa's (Golden Boy mangaka) designs are most likely the basis for his style; he worked on an adaptation of one of Egawa's manga, "Magical Taruruto Kun" in 1992, early on in his career. Does anyone see where he's coming from with this?

Why does she wear the band-aid?

It's moe

If I peeled it off, would she die?

She's a big girl.
