Anime is better now. For starters, it's actually animated.

Not sure what you're getting at. If it's character design, then that's very subjective.

>Older animation had style
Im guessing you just mean the art style
Besides, it's called having a TV series budget anon

Modern films or non-series/manga bundle OVAs have significantly very high production values
Obviously the art style reflects contemporary trends

Every time you see these retarded threads some spastic compares 80s/90s OVAs with TV releases
It's a completely different scale

This thread is brought to you by the ghost of Paul "Otaking" Johnson, certified nostalgiafag and professional cherrypicker.

>>101115888
Every single shot has a crappy gradient background

So every bit of the budget is pumped into character detail leaving the world up to the viewers imagination

SO GOOD

I love how this compares 80s OVAs to 00s TV animation and expects it to be a fair comparison. I wish I had the image on hand that completely debunks this notion.

What is Kyousogiga?
What is Eccentric Family?
What is Kickheart?

Not every show can have a unique or different style and not every show is the same recycled bullshit. It's about the same as it was back in the 70s and 80s... no scratch that, it's better given that computers make it easier/cheaper to do stylistically different choices.

If there is any argument to be made here it is that cel coloring had a warmer and more organic feel than just fill-bucket in some software. I would agree with that, but face it nobody is going to spend their time painting images these days when you can click a button and fill all that instantly.

So much faggotry.

With such a little sentence.

Nostalgiafaggotry is retarded, especially when you can list no specific examples and only spout generalizations.

>cel coloring had a warmer and more organic feel
I feel like this is a more applicable complaint to early 00s digipaint stuff, which really did look bad and hasn't aged well, than the stuff we get in recent years.
>>
>>101117192

Good digital colouring trumps good cel colouring any time. The likes of Blood TLV, FLCL, My Neighbour The Yamadas, Dennou Coil, and Hyouka are coloured digitally, yet they have very appealing visuals.

Some background art studios still paint by hand, like Studio Pablo.

>>101117448

It's just a matter of taste. And of course digital coloring can be done well when effort is put into a scene.
>>
>>101117523
If we're talking about background art then I imagine most studios still paint by hand. I'm talking about the characters and animation.

Grain wasn't intentionally put there, you know. Your complaint about new things is just not valid - rather than things being processed, you're seeing what they actually look like. If film had no grain, cel animation would look similar to modern stuff.
