Cool stoy bro'...
I liked it overall, except the ending. I would have liked him to have been put back in jail, not blown to bits by a giant atomic-tobacco-doodle. But hey, got work overall.
Its a simple story, but that doesn't mean it has to have simple characters. One Eye's motivation is revenge, The Sheriff's motivation is duty, but essentially, One Eye maintains a level playing field, while The Sheriff doesn't. In a curious form of duality, One Eye is sadistic but oddly sympathetic.
a simple story, easy to get into, likeable characters and a nice style with great animation....did i mention epic?
It's quite good, quite good indeed. But every time I see it I always feel like you missed a chance for a great twist ending. I always imagine the sheriff defeating One Eye in a less destructive way and this exchange:
Sheriff: "It's over One Eye..."
One Eye: "Heh heh heh... No, it's just begun. YOU'RE One Eye now." *passes away*
Sheriff pauses for a moment to reflect before saying to himself: "That's where you're wrong One Eye, I may have one eye, but I'll use it to protect these people until the day I rust."
DUN DUN DUUUN amirite? Of course that would only make sense if the plot had him suffer a more grievous loss of the township more akin to One Eye, but still.
