The fact that no one remembers Toolio even makes me sad.
when asking the general public.... he's not very high on the relevant things in Void list.... which again, makes me sad, and hopefully sometime this year, at least one of us can help correct that.
I think maybe it has something to do with you being around back then, and to anybody not around back then he doesn't mean anything... I've read pretty much every Void battle too and Toolio made no impression on me at all.
I mean out of hundreds and hundreds of characters he didn't even stand out and wasn't particularly awesome to me. Just another face in the many, many faces of characters and artists come and gone... most of which after reading them passed back into nothingness and non-memory not soon after.
Not every character and battle is like that. Some, it doesn't matter when you come into the world of Void or when you read them them, past or present, they stand out! but I'd say that's rare.
I wasn't here for James, P2, or Mize's heyday either, but they stood out to me. When I think of Void, I think of them! James and P2 ARE Void to me! Not some guy I've barely heard of and didn't resound at all in my memory aside from every once in a while I see a pic of him and don't know why.
Some things are subjective to their environment... cliques, humor, etc.
It was hilarious or cool to you back then, and all your buddies who shared the same outlook, but if you weren't part of that group and it's YEARS and YEARS later, times and people and enviroments have changed... you might not be in on why people thought that was cool... I don't know, that's my take.
