....How is it Obata managed to make a questionable design for Simon Belmont and then show he's capable of making Cecil actually look like Cecil?

Toriyama should work on more FFs!

I would've liked Berzerk's mangaka to work on FFVII.

Capcom tries to appeal to the CoD gamer with RE6.
CoD gamer buys the new CoD instead.

Better question, why does someone behind Death Note actually think Cecil is WORTH drawing?

Well, Obata was probably asked to go crazy with his Simon Belmont redesign(as well as all the other characters in Judgement). Cecil, like the other artist, he was probably told to keep true to the original design. It's pretty badass(love that Obata gave the picture some umph by placing Cecil on the moon with the Blue Planet behind him and a crystal formation beside him).

I would love to see a Toriyama FF world, though I'd love even more to see a Chrono sequel where Toriyama heads the art direction. Many people gripe about his style, which they shake off as being simplistic, but I can't help to feel that there's a kind of charm to it. I love how his worlds tend to have dome-shaped houses and animal people, despite being different worlds(Dragon Ball, Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger). They are all really colorful, whimsical worlds(that can be dark if the story allows it).

It is interesting that got the guy who does Naruto to do Cloud, considering I always thought, from the first time I saw Naruto, it reminded me of the unconventional depiction of ninjas like FFVII's Yuffie. Hell, Yuffie could fit in with all those Naruto characters. Also, there's something about Nomura's designs of the FFVII characters that I see done similarly with the Naruto characters(guess it's the more modern taken on fantasy):

The whole modern-take on fantasy/warriors and the giant "cow eyes"(which I typically call the big eyes of Nomura's FFVII characters) are what both share.

All of those are pretty terrible TBH.


....

Reasons?

And don't just give me "bland and generic"


They look poorly-drawn and just flat-out ugly. Aside from I and V, I guess. IMO, of course.

Something feels extremely wrong about Naruto and Bleach's creators respective designs for Cloud and Squall. Like, it all feels incredibly snooty.

Oh well, my favorites are I, VI and XII, VI's in particular makes me want to watch Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
