Mr. Hyde in anime/manga style?

Hi!! I was researching about the book The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson, and while reading the physical descriptions of Edward Hyde in the book, I was wondering about something.

So Hyde is described as "pale and dwarfish", with rough, corded hands, which is pretty straightfoward. But then it says that he has "something displeasing" and "down-right detestable" in his appearance, and that he was giving "an impression of deformity without any nameable malformation".

So how do you think this can be translated into anime/manga?

      Me and my friend recently watched Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade, written by legendary Mamoru Oshii, which is based on his Kerberos Saga manga and media franchise. Strangely, he didn't direct it like he did Ghost In The Shell (apparently he was so busy working on the latter that he allowed his close protege to do the directing instead). Anyway, after finishing the film, we were left confused with a thought: Was it good? Did we like it? But the more we thought about it, we came up with our own answers: My friend didn't like it, citing that the forced "Little Red Riding Hood" metaphor throughout the entire film and flat characterization for the main characters didn't make him feel invested in the story at all.
      As for me, I did not dislike it, but I also didn't like it. But strangely, I couldn't say that I did not care for it. In the end, my feelings towards Jin-Roh was that "I wanted to like it". It has beautiful animation, music and overall great production values considering the time it was made and released, and there's obviously deep love and care put into making the movie. However, it is also one of those movies were unless you understand Japanese historical background (in this case post-WWII) and other cultural context not familiar to the western audience, you would be left utterly confused by it. We discussed this together with our acquaintance who recommended for to watch it so he can discuss his own thoughts about it with us: 
      What did all of you think of Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade? Did you understand its message and theme better than we did? Or was it also confusing to you at times?

      How many of you have seen Godzilla Anime Trilogy? From what I've read, these movies are heavily divisive among the fans and general audience. Me and my friend watched all of them in the same day. There definitely were a lot of flaws we could see, but we could see a lot of merit these movies bring to the Godzilla mythos with fresh, unique ideas and concepts. We made a video where discussed in detail about all three movies, giving our individual scores in each area what worked or didn't work for us, before giving the overall final score: 
       
      What did all of you think of these movies? I sometimes feel like that the hate from the general audience came because they were expecting something similar to those two recent American Godzilla movies, with their catering towards "fan service" and entertaining action scenes. Do these movies deserve all the scrutiny they get, or is there something more to them?
