Holy shit! How can you butcher casting that much?!

They completely ruined Togusa! He’s a 30-something family guy, not a 50-something ... whatever that is! It’s like they read the name and went with this alone for guidance. No background, or even a picture of him.

Boma also looks terrible. He’s much bigger; muscles with a good amount of fat. At the very least they should have made him bold, that’s the least they could have done! And are those eyebrows?

The others look nice though. Ishikawa looks amazing!
