I just realized that Krillin eyes stop being coloured. I'm late as fuck but why Toei? Budget reasons? What episode did this begin on?

No, it wasn't started, then stopped. It was simply inconsistent.

It was just Toei being lazy with the animation. It's nothing new.

Yes, it was. His eyes were consistently colored from his original appearance through the middle of the 21st Budoukai, and then they suddenly weren't.
Do you follow the most comprehensive and entertaining Dragon Ball analysis series on YouTube? If you do, you're smart and awesome and fairly attractive. If not, see what all the fuss is about without even having to leave Kanzenshuu:

Maybe it was a decision made by the creator designer? There are plenty of anime characters that randomly get design overhauls in the middle of their series. One episode, Princess Yukiko from Dororon Enma-kun ages about 5 years:

In Sailor Moon, Chibiusa's friend Momo also had an inconsistent character design. By her third season, she had boobs and purple hair.

Vegeta comes to mind.

I think it was probably due to Krillin always squinting his eyes when he was a kid. His eyes most of the time were squinting than open and round. I bet Toei decided it would look best to remove the white part of the eye, much like Yajirobi!

But then Krillin stopped squinting all the time....
My favourite art style (and animation) outside Toriyama who worked on Dragon Ball: Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, Masaki Satō, Minoru Maeda, Takeo Ide, Hisashi Eguchi, Katsumi Aoshima, Tomekichi Takeuchi, Masahiro Shimanuki, Kazuya Hisada

I also wondered about why Toei made that change, Toriyama kept drawing Krillin eyes same way through whole series.

Toei was and is bad at its job.

That is confusing consistency for quality.

They watched/read too much Peanuts.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

They provide us with none of that.
