* AnimalisticAbomination: Raiku showed a slight interest in drawing giant scary monsters in Zatch Bell, and went on to draw more in that series' Gaiden chapter and his horror one-shot "Class Room". This interest blossomed into fascination in Animal Land, which is chock full of huge creepy things.
* ArtEvolution: The change between Zatch Bell and Animal Land is ''amazing''.
** And then it goes straight back into the weird style used to have, in Vector Ball.
