Since e1n was so kind as to lock the previous topic, let's give it another shot.
I'm in my final year of Media Studies and we have to do a comparative 3000 word essay. In my infinite wisdom, I decided on the following question - Compare and contrast the representation of villains in the manga 'One Piece' and 'Dragonball'. I thought getting some views from you lot would be an easy way to get some meat for the above mentioned essay. Now the villains I'll be talking about in particular are …
Buggy the Clown/Pilaf (filling the dual role of the comedic/recurring villain)
Kaku/Chaotzu (filling the role of the side villain)
Captain Kuro/Arlong and Tao Pai Pai (filling the role of the minor villain)
Crocodile/Piccolo Daimao (filling the role of the main villain)
Commodore Smoker/Tien (filling the role of the Anti Hero)
Now if you have any ideas about bad guys that would better fill these roles, please say. As for what I need you wonderful people for is this: do you like this characters and why/why not? Do you think they forfill the role of the villain in the traditional sense and if they don't, how are they different? Finally what do you think they add to the story? Any other interesting tidbits would be welcomed.
Thanks in advance for any help!
