Which anime has the best drawing style, in your opinion?
Pic not related. It's the ugliest anime ever - Gun Frontier.
Planetes is pretty nice...
First Digimon movie. That kind of art.
What in the world does "drawing style" mean?
Same guy was also behind the second Digimon movie and TokiKake. I love Mamoru Hosoda.
The style in which it was drawn?
anime that looks like regurgitated poop from by frame but is amazing to watch
Kemonozume is pretty high on my list.
masaaki yuasa stuff
I believe you mean "frame by frame". And I agree. It gives a smoothness to the animation.
I don't care what you say, 70's style and Matsumoto style are awesome
personally I love Shinkai.
yeah I did, listening to music and the lyrics are messing up my thought process
I like Matsumoto, but Gun Frontier wasn't that great.
As for artists, I love the way Koji Morimoto draws.
Gun Frontier sucks, but not because of the art style.
While we're on the subject of animation...
Anyone have any info on that new project of Masaaki Yuasa's that is supposed to air next season?
Seirei no Moribito, anyone?
The Big O
Fight scene animation? Yes.
Rest of it? Okay... But the characters really shine during the show, so I don't care as much.
I've always liked the basic art style that Gainax used for FLCL and Gurren Lagann.
The girl who leapt through time is my favorite kind.
I still think Touka Gettan is beautiful. Too bad it sucks.
DELICIOUS FAT HIPS
Holy crap, that's a mix of every style I like in one package!
Someone else watched Windy Tales!
Yuasa is brilliant. But everyone knows this.
WHAT IS THIS CALLED?!
Mononoke. It's great.
I fucking love that show. Greatest slice-of-life ever.
Since I mentioned Windy Tales and we're having an art discussion (kinda), I nominate Shinya Ohira for being all kinds of awesome:
Touka Gettan. Fucking beautiful, isn't it?
It sucks, don't watch it.
THANK YOU CHIRUNO~
Also Ayakashi episodes 9, 10, and 11.
This. Fuck yeah.
This thread rocks. /a/ needs more like this.
Pretty much anything by Bones (Komori, Kawamoto, Yoshida, etc)
Here's some Pootube quality for people too lazy/stupid to create a Moontube account:
Jay Leno the animation?
Sadamoto is the greatest. Although I'm not sure he did character design for Gurren Lagann.
Nope, Gurren-Lagann was Atsusushi Nishigori.
i just thing this looks nice
Anything Shaft (Pani Poni Dash, Hidamari Sketch, SZS, etc.)
I saw Robot 4 at work and I panicked, thinking my power level was showing.
Shaft or Ghibli
That thar be Range Murata.
Oshit, forgot mah trip. Anyways, here's another one. I like this style a lot too.
I like anime where the character have noses. Either stylized overly pronounced Kaiji/Akagi style or a step-up from generic triangle noses like Planetes where only male characters have noses.
Do you like Escaflowne?
1- Hanaukyo Maids/La Verite
2- Dirty Pair/DP Flash
3- Burn Up/W/Excess/Scramble
4- Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha/A's/StrikerS
5- Kiddy Grade
6- Mahou Tsukai Tai
7- Galaxy Angel/Z/3/4/Rune
8- CardCaptor Sakura
9- Najica Blitz Tactics
10- Stratos 4/S4 Advance
11- Agent AIKa/AIKa R-16
12- Magic Knight Rayearth
13- Tokyo Mew Mew
15- Azumanga Daioh
Keiji Gotoh is a hack, and one of the worst designers in the industry.
>I like anime where the character have noses.
Marry me. You have no idea how long I've been searching for someone like you.
Yoshitoshi ABe's style.
masaaki yuasa's stuff for being cartoony and awesome (Mind Game, Kemonozume)
Everything by Hiroyuki Imaishi (FLCL ep 5, OvalXOver, Dead Leaves, lots of Gurren scenes and eyecatches, RE: Cutie Honey ep 1, Namco x Capcom intro, Abenobashi ep 3 and others)
Go Nagai style (tons of badass facial expressions)
Oh, I forgot 70s/early 80s Lupin III
do I have shit tastes /a/?
Just don't leave me at the altar.
This shit is so fucking subjective I have no idea what to say.
Also, I have to go with Kenshin, just because I started liking anime and manga with Watsuki. And I know I will get shit for this, but I love the cartoony Oda style too.
I meant to say "agreed" to those first three.
You have excellent tastes. but in the den of the dull, daft, and strange - the intelligent is absurd.
From this, I can conclude that you have shit taste.
The Soultaker was a nice mix and the kind of lines that were used in Tokikake/the Cat returns/digimon movies are very pretty.
But to be honest I get tired of anime that use very alternative artstyles pretty quickly. I often find it obnoxious.
No way, I love that style, however, I can't stand Matsumoto though. I know, I just can't get into it.
I see where you are coming from, but, that is why I like stuff like Kenshin, that has very artistic fight scenes, but not to the extent of being hard to watch.
I love Urushihara style... seen some short animations of Langrisser or Grownlanser or even hentais like Lady Innocent prove it.
Too bad, he haven't made any good animu. All he did till now was hentai=shit and short animation for videogames. :(
Agreed. Except Lady innocent is pretty much the best Hentai out there. nearly devoid of rape too. Amazing.
inviting shitstorm but I love the Deathnote style as well as the 1st Grimmjaw/Ichigo fight animation; to me I love the high contrast as well as the dark lines
death note anime did have very good art direction, which is unusual for manga adaptations.
I'm partial to Urushihara myself. On the pro side, the animation is always top notch and most women look great, which is a great deal, but there are a few things that pile up and even the balance:
-Guy insists on doing way too much shit on his own, resulting in LOOOOOOOONG production times. When you add up the fact that his stuff usually have a lot of frames, well...
-Sometimes, the above point results into too much looping animation. Lady Innocent does this a lot in the sex scenes. On the other hand, Plastic Little is even longer and has none of this somehow.
-The man faces are a gamble. The older guy and the nigger in Plastic Little were great, but he sometimes slips into way too fucking girly (Nichol) or really weird creepy faces (The gunner in Plastic Little).
agreed. Kenshin is another great example. I know I already said that, but to me it is worth mentioning twice.
Don't mind me....
Did anyone ever make a higher res version of that?
No reason for racism, dude.
It's so beautiful...
Well, Kenshin varies a lot depending on the season. And I meant "Araki drawing different parts in Jojo" kind of varying. Mostly everything until Kyoto Hen kicks in is really shitty, and most AFTER that was okay at best.
The animationg DURING Kyoto was always great though.
Shut up namefag.
I liked it all, and I especially liked the way they did the fight scenes in the beginning, without showing everything, that is what I meant by the artistic side. But I understand it doesn't compare to most, I just fell in love with it in High School, so have an unrealistic affinity for it.
Racism in /a/ doesn't belong, dude.
Love the works of Leiji Matsumoto (Captain Harlock, Galaxy Express 999, Interstella 5555) and Yutaka Minowa (Ninja scroll, Highlander: The Search for Vengeance, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, The Animatrix: Program)
These two fellas kick some serious ass..
You must be new here.
No, just not a terrible person.
I think you should hop along back to your happy-clappy christian anime forum.
I don't know about anime but I fucking love the way Nightow draws Trigun.
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time as well as the first Digimon move (as >>10085038 pointed out) also have good art styles.
GTFO faggot. You don't belong here.
Stanch Athiest, just not a racist.
Stanch Atheist, just not a racist.
you should be friendly and tolerant with other opinions.
C'mon, with a nice smile write something beautiful to each other! C'mon good anons!
Also, One Piece Movie 6.
Samurai Champloo or Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
Koji Morimoto's stuff.
hokuto no ken maby.
I can't stand Urushihara stuff because all the characters have bunny teeth.
