What style of aniem do you like most

Postby CaTaClYsM » Tue Jul 30, 2002 3:59 pm

What I mean to say is what type of anime drawing style do you like most. I mean, even thought anime is anime they still have varying styles, there is grave of the fire flies, akira, evangelion, Angel santuary, Vandread, among others have a slightly different drawing style, I just felt like asking out of all the animes you have seen, which style do you like most.

Don't bother bringing up the fact that I misspelled anime. I already caught it.

I personally really like the trenchcoat/heavy robe style that Eatman started and Trigun made popular. The only other ones I can think of that use it are Hellsing and Gungrave, but yeah. Heavy trenchcoats.

mine would probably be, the type they used in the spriggan. but that is for an anime movie, for a series probably trigun. but of all the anime I have ever seen it would have to be the opening movie for wild arms 2. hands down the most artistic and detailed anime I have ever seen.

I like almost all types the best. The more cute the better though. Comedy and drama tie for my top spot.

I can also say what I don't like...bad digital. If you watch 'Saber Marionette J Again', that is some BAD digital anime there. Bad digital animation can ruin any anime for me.

Since I am highly critical of production values (you don't want to watch a movie with me if there are a lot of flaws 'cause I won't shut up) I can't stand mistakes that are because of short cuts or ignorance. Live action is more notorious for that than any animation. Bad CG, blue/green screen effect, or too much stretch effects really make any production look cheap. I don't like that.

Miyazaki! I mean sure the main characters always look very similar but I love it anyway. I was kinda surprised watching Laputa... I was like, "Wait why is San in this... and why is she wearing a dress and floating... ? Oh wait that must be Kiki!"

I like all kinds really. As long as they fit the anime. You can kind of associate the type of anime with the way it is drawn. And I'd hate to see only one style for drawing anime. So it's hard to choose a favorite but all in all I like Miyazaki's the best :) .

cowboy bebop personifies what anime should strive for. good detail, not to mention having ALL characters drawn in a unique and diverse way.

another good style is the 2d work done in vandread. awkward beginning (no real style tacked down), but evolves to a clean, precise style, with babes all around :shock: :P 8)

I found Vandread 2nd Stage looked better. Don't know why, It just appears that way to me.

I like anything...BUT... that girl from escaflowne...I hate eyes like that, and real thin eyes and nose styles...usually style like that involves too much hentai (from my experience.ex wicked city, I hate that)

I know it sounds bad, but anime that tries too hard to look real isn't as appealing to me. Final Fantasy can be the epitome of it, but Grave of the Fireflies and Jin-Roh also do this. BUT! In GotF and Jin-Roh they match the style of the movie. Final Fantasy doesn't reflect reality, its a FANTASY story, it should not be using lifelike looks, it should be big eyes and have the cel painted look (even though that's done on computers anyway, these days.).
Another not-so-good example of attempted more lifelike look was the Esca movie. Hitomi looked like crap in that, and Esca is a high fantasy series, not suited for a lifelike look.
Hehe, yes, bad digital animation, Initial D has some pretty bad digital animation on the cars.
Styles that I like though, Clamp's style is good, though sometimes its hard to tell the guys are guys :P
One that I recently saw whose style I absolutely loved was King of Bandits; JING. VERY cool, and VERY Pretty.
There are a lot of styles I like though. Adolesense of Utena is the most gorgeous piece of animation I have seen to date. :D
