The new Weiss Kruez (Gluhen). Opinions anyone?

*sigh*

For all you original Weiss Kruez fans who have not seen the new Gluhen art, see here: http://www.koyasutakehito.com/weiss/index.html

These designs are the result of some lady who sued Project Weiss and forced them to re-create our beautiful Ran, Omi, Ken, and Yohji.

I don't like it.

However, there are some people who actually do like it.

I wanna hear all opinions. Tell me what ya think! XD

well..my friend was rather mad at it.
she didn't like Aya's new look because it was no fun to insult him if he was actually cute. I though that the new omi look was bad because he was no longer innocent looking.
ken's not that bad but he looks... off in that pic and yoji just looks freaky. the hat scares me.
i don't have a huge oppinion about this outside of an aesthic point because all knowladge comes form my before metioned friend and a pic i did on her request that crossed the CCS charecters with them.

Ya know what I heard? I heard that they're making this new Ken into another Farfarello. Omi into another Taketori, and Yohji into some guy who wants to strangle girls, and Ran...is normal. *blink*

It may be true, and it may not be. Baaah. ~_~;

My absolute first thought when I saw the redesigns was that Aya looks like Gackt. It may be just me. But he looks like Gackt. I don't like the new Youji; I may be biased cause I can't cosplay this version. But I think the coat is stupid. Nothing against the hat cause he has that in the manga. I kinda like Ken's outfit, but he looks really generic beyond that. And Omi really looks like a reject from Clamp Campus Detectives. :P They don't look like outfits anyone would really wear, I think the other ones were more believable. It looks like a one shot image from an artbook, not a character design . . . well my opinions anyway.

My reaction was: Clamp redesigned WK?
Then I wanted to weep at poor Youji. He looks terrible.

All in all, only Aya looks nice and I have to say I love his outfit, it's very much in line with things I like to cosplay, i.e. intricate militaristic uniforms that could be done in PVC. ^___^

Now I want to see Schwartz! Or maybe not. What will they do to my pretty bespectacled Bradley? >__< (The word "pretty" being used in reference to the MANGA not the ANIME.)

It seems to me they are trying to make the series hip, which is sad, because the only thing going for it was how awful it was. I don't remember laughing so hard at any other anime. ^___^

Asukaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

...God..I'm scared to see what they're going to do to Schwarz. *gag*

As for the lawsuit...I'm not really sure. All I know is that some weird lady sued because she said that she made up WK. ~_~;

I don't like the new designs very much myself. I mean maybe Aya, but I truly can't stand the rest.

My friend is obsessed, I'll aske her if she knows about the lawsuit. *~prepares to get an earfull~*

> why and what were they sued for???

I think it was about intellectual property and who owned the original designs, so instead of fighting they re-designed the characters... I didn't care enough to find out the details, sorry. ^___^

Poor, poor Youji.. he looks like freakin' Cowboy Andy from Cowboy Bebop. @_@;;

If I had to pick one of them that I actually liked, it would have to be Ken. He still looks sort of Ken-ish. Omi just looks like he let himself go and got lazy or something, because that hair style/color is just awful. x_x And Ran looks creepy. ;_; Can't see the ponytail in that pic, but I'm pretty sure he has one..

I also don't want to know what they'll do to Schwarz. Bradley and SchuSchu.. disgraced! *weep*

I don't think he looks like Andy . . . lol. Interesting about the lawsuit, I didn't know that. Maybe I'll try and track down some more details . . .

Rosiel - Yep, I have a friend who's a super Weiss fan. Personally I like it for the high camp factor. (Come on, it's campy! Campy can be good.) lol right after I saw that scene in the first ep, the most random anime death ever. ^^
