what's your favorite series with regards to sheer animation quality?
What awful taste.
Nichijou and Cromartie.
Kyoukai no Kanata
Say what you will about everything else, the show had great animation.
Guilty Crown. Flawless animation.
this guy knows what's up
Nothing else even comes close
Nagi no Nasukara
It's like 5 Centimeters Per Second for 2 cours.
Anything in the Monogatari series.
You can't possibly claim that S2 has any animation quality.
The BDs haven't been released yet.
>all these idiots mistaking art quality, art direction, artistic style, designs, etc for animation
As far as the actual animation goes, there's very little that tops Nichijou. This is an indisputable fact.
I'd sooner pick a movie if I'm judging based on animation quality alone, but if I have to pick a TV series then this
dat penguin butt
Feel like dumping these.
Hyouka. Felt like KyoAni animation wank and it was glorious. Nichijou as an honorable mention.
I made me angry how they seemed to have made episode 7 their budget episode, considering how pivotal it was.
Then it's really difficult to pick a movie, there's so many of them that are going to have superb animation quality.
Nigga, you serious? All that terrible 3D and absent shadows? Fuck off, the animation is shit. Great pacing, though.
I think the animation in that episode was a joke, because the illustrations for the LN were messed up on the first printing or something.
But thats a movie
nigga what? I fucking loved the style in 7
thief and the cobbler's pretty good
I was gonna say Bakemonegatari but it's really just an artistic masterpiece. The animation good but it's best aspect.
And that's what I got.
I would honestly not put it past them.
Anyways I thought Yamato had some pretty great and consistent animation.
The animation is good but it's not it's best aspect**
I suck at typing
For movies, Disappearance easily.
For shows, Monogatari.
>can't tab for captcha anymore
I am not talking about the art style, but the animation quality seriously dipped in that episode.
If you prefer Hyouka over Nichijou, you are an idiot.
If you prefer Redline over Akira, you are a massive fucking idiot.
What animation do you speak of in the first place?
Really though, while there are parts that are very well animated, the show overall is fairly static.
There's 2 unnecessary muzzle flares on the left turret. Where the fuck are they coming from? The right turret doesn't have them. Redline is disqualified.
>If you prefer Redline over Akira, you are a massive fucking idiot.
Redline is superior in virtually every regard.
as much as i like redline, i think that akira has smoother animation, and for that i like it more in the animation-side. artistically, redline's better.
Yea that's what I mean. I can't say it's a well animated show when there's so many scenes with barely any animation.
I just think it's a visually stunning show which is why it was the first show I thought of in the first place.
Top notch animation, shit art direction.
Every shade is black.
color pallet makes up for that easily. top notch art direction.
They're basically the same in smoothness of animation and animation quality, but considering Redline has a lot more happening onscreen combined with every other, related or unrelated, aspect being better there's really no contest.
>Every shade is black.
Thanks for the compelling argument as to why your opinion is shit.
I think Birdy Decode 2 has some of the best action animation as far as TV anime go.
No, your opinion is shit.
It makes the show looks edgy and tire my sight all the time, it's like writing everything in uppercase.
Akira has an edge over Redline for the character animation, it's more expressive than Redline's. Redline has a lot of good mechanical and action animation, but Akira has it's own fair share of impressive scenes like the first motorcycle chase scene, particularly Toshiyuki Inoue and Toyoaki Emura's cuts.
>regardless of animation quality
You heard me.
VN is better but it's still great regardless.
nah dude i think akira's thinner line weighting alongside the good spacing and timing just makes the animation, which is the topic, better. redline has more to it, but that doesn't outweigh the vitality you get from having crisp smooth motions coming in and out of the foreground.
I think you misread OP's post.
what the hell do you mean edgy? please don't use buzzwords.
Much simpler designs, especially in the characters, makes that possible.
Same reason Nichijou has amazing animation, the designs are simple.
Most people in this thread did, why are you focusing on him?
Hard to pick one, so I'll make a list
Kyoukai no Kanata
virtually no QUALITY in any of them
I recall there being a moment where it becomes very apparent they didn't have time to finish the episode before it aired. Like the whole scene turns into blobs.
>not one mention of dennou coil
honestly, i like simple designs>amazing animation over amazing designs>simple animation. i guess it's just preference.
OP here. thanks for reminding me of it. I need to watch it.
They don't make pure sakuga anime anymore. Redline will be remembered as the last one after they seemingly ended.
If you're talking about Shingo Yamashita's cuts in the finale, I don't think that was rushed. The only bit of animation I didn't like in the show was Tomoyuki Niho's work in one of the earlier episodes. That one was sloppy though it was fixed in the DVD later.
>They don't make pure sakuga anime anymore
>simple designs>amazing animation
I'm with you on that point. This is an animated medium after all, movement is important.
But that's my point. They both have smooth, good animation, but Redline has a lot more going on. More complex designs for basically everything. That's why I say it's better, because it has the same quality while being more complex.
Doesn't count, its off a manga. I mean where they make up any plot simply for the sake of animating something that looks nice.
The Animemirai shorts?
In terms of sheer movement, Akira has the edge over Redline.
I dunno I think that Akira has smoother character animation. Redline doesn't get the same level of smoothness becuase of the shading which is amazing btw, so it's understandable, but akira just gives a lot more definition in the movements because of the lack of shading i guess. overall, you notice the followthroughs more so as a result of the lack of detail on its end, which makes it better.
how could their be any "animation" quality when 90% of the anime are still frames
OP said sheer animation quality, not overall quality
and you have to admit, those fight scenes are pretty boner-inducing
Those were funded by the goverment to teach recruits techniques, it had educational purposes.
Hyouka and Nichijou
Actually just include the whole KyoAni library
it's a shame kyoani doesn't do fantasy adventure genres.
They tried doing that knk anime, but apparently kyoani wrote the novel, so no wonder its shit. They should do an action anime by someone competent in the writing side.
The closest we got is Chuu2 and KnK
They published the novel, it was the "winning" entry for their annual novel competition.
A series? I'll cheat and use an OVA series which is Macross Plus.
Their character design doesn't mesh well with action
If they used Free design, with a less colorful palette maybe
>fujonshi have shit taste
So next time they should hire some men to judge the novels.
I think they look okay, there's some knk in here.
Pretty sure there are more male judges than female ones. Also, there actually have been no proper winning entries so far, just special mentions. It's obvious that even Kyoani aren't entirely satisfied with the quality of submissions but they have to take what they can get.
I love eva but man that is wrong. You can easily tell there were budget problems, especially later in the series.
Hyouka, without a doubt.
Love Lab wasn't fucking bad either, but it needed more backgrounds, unfortunately. It's character animation was spectacular though.
I'm about to enter one of these contests then. It'd be great pr to have a gaijjin kyoani anime. How to enter?
Love Lab had impressive character animation in the first and last few episodes. The animation in the rest of the show ranged from average to sloppy.
It depends what you mean by "quality"
If you mean a show with the conventionally smoothest animation, traits like loads of frames well drawn and successfully flowing with one another, both expressive and on-design, it's kind of dumb to make this distinction between tv shows because it's really just the show with the most money thrown at it, and even that will be dwarfed by movies. Even so I'd probably say Coyboy Bebop, Soul Eater (pretty much everything made by super rich post-fma bones), Hyouka (or pretty much anything made by super rich post-haruhi kyoani).
What's more interesting is shows that use animation in interesting, engaging, and unconventional ways to get it's feel across. Shows like Monogatari, Ouran HSHC, Nichijou, mononoke, kaiba, Death Note and Gankutsuou probably win in this regard.
I doubt they accept submissions from gaijin piggus.
youre edgy ironically
FLCL, if only because of the last half of Brittle Bullet.
That fucking barbershop scene, man. I remember that scene blowing me away the first time I saw it.
why does it have to be the show with the most money? plenty of key animators could throw tons of frames out if they wanted to couldn't they? some of the smoothest scenes ever made aren't even in 1s but in 3s.
Gardens of Words/5cms, the quality of the characters and backgrounds in both are astounding.
Also relevant. Haruko's expressions were always entertaining
It takes skill and time to make animation look good, those two elements aren't something an animator will always have. There's also a budget for drawings per episode, animators must be mindful of that.
Imaishi's work in FLCL was impressive.
Kill Me Baby
well the show with the best staff behind it given the most time then (which more or less translates to money).
I also forgot to mention >>101835573
on creatively interesting shows, and that show is amazing.
At least EOE looked nice.
evangelion was amazingly well directed
EoE and Rebuild had the money/animation as well.
BDs never of course.
Could never have a favorite series from just animation quality, is style ok?
It's so well animated that sometimes it's indiscernable from live action.
Oh shut the fuck up.
Lets just hope that a year or two after the rebuilds are done they'll come out.
He said animation, not slideshow.
Character design was the least of KnK's problems. Animation was great, though.
Anything KyoAni, really. I don't know how many fucking animators, but I don't remember too many QUALITY issues with them, ever.
>that KnK dance scene
I play it again every time I feel down.
>I don't know how many fucking animators THEY HAVE
Okay, sleepy time on.
I assume you're not familiar with the moe monstrosities of pre-haruhi kyoani
Who's your favorite animator, /a/?
Ghost in the Shell. I'm honestly concerned over the answers in this thread.
I remember Ghost Hound having quite good animation. Some of the fights in Kurenai were gorgeous. Kaiba can afford to be beautiful the whole way through thanks to its super low line count.
