Collection of cool Anime Men with Eyepatches

Another old collection of mine for sharing.

It’s not what you can see, it is what you cannot see behind that dark curtain. Be it your trusted companion gorging out your eye and eating it, or the valiant sacrifice for a friend’s life; that black veil is a patch that can barely contain the deep suffering of the tragic soul. (YES I love tortured souls)

Indeed, that eyepatch is the secret weapon to turning a boy into a man when designing a character.

Behind every one of their eyepatches, there is a secret tale of pain; of sacrifice; of danger; and of what turned them into damn cool anime guys that makes this otaku girl’s heart go ‘boom boom boom’ 🙂
