Re: One Piece art is bad/childish?
I think the story and art are basically what it boils down to.
One Piece's art suits its story, so people who prefer Naruto will ultimately call One Piece's art blah blah blah etc.
I've always thought that Naruto's early art was utter shit but the story was good.
Compared with OP and Bleach Naruto only started looking better around the timeskip.
I can't remember where but I remember Oda stating something about as the story grows so do the characters appearances. Similar to the real world, as the year goes on you get older etc.
Bleach however, the background and the fights are awesomely drawn.
But every male character has the same eyes and basically most characters look the same. Kubo just changes the hairstyle between characters.
I did say that the art matches the story. I did say that Naruto's early art was shit and the story was good. Now its quite the opposite.
I like the art but think the story is shit.
This is just my opinion on this particular series(Naruto), but other series follow the Art = Plot theme well for me just not Naruto.
