Love Vincent. Cowboy Beebop has so many incredible characters it’s astounding. And I don’t mind the pseudo-vampire idea in general at all, but it wouldn’t be my first choice. Maybe I’ll share my Ro character concept when I have more time, but to sum it up it’s a girl, fencing as her fighting style and is a rival to Vega.
Regarding Juri’s design, while neither the original concept or the finished design are all that good, especially compared to her original one (even with V’s jacket), what I really hate about it is the boob increase. And that’s coming from a boob man! It was kind of a point of her that she was quite frustrated due to her flat chest and the ‘loving boobs’ tidbit from… somewhere (that exists right? I’m not crazy?) was a nice little reference to both that and a nod to her sexuality. I like that more for the same reason I prefer Poison to have a dick: makes the cast more diverse. Juri is clearly supposed to be a cock tease, beyond an evil cunt, so developing that more with these kind of (very modern!) frustrations enriches her character further than just another hentai bait.
