What style of aniem do you like most

Follow your nose...

Postby OmniStrata » Wed Jul 31, 2002 11:43 am

Curvy to the extreme. Beak noses I tolerate to an extent. (Evangelion, yes. Escaflowne, somebody FILE DOWN THOSE SHARP EYE POKING HAZARDS!)

Fav examples. Onegai Teacher, Real Bout High School, Great Teacher Onizuka.

The key art style for me is the nose/eye execution, with bodies coming up close behind. The Manga, "Bastard!!!" has my all time favorite style. Luscious babes, badass heroes, etc.

To be more precise in art "style", one should look at the Character Designs of anime.

I wish I knew the Character Designer of Onegai Teacher, but I couldn't find credits anywhere.

People I know who does nice character designs:

Kazushi Hagiwara (yep I know, I've said it a million times, my all time fav artist)
Oh Great! (He did some H-Manga but if you read Himiko Den and/or Tenjyou Tenge, you may actually find a nicely building plot or 3)
Tsukasa Kotobuki (for those who don't know, he does though wyld and wacky character designs for the Saber Marionette J Series)
Keiji Gotoh (like ALL the regular anime I love watching: Nadesico, Hyper Police, Gatekeepers, Those who Hunt Elves, Real Bout High School, and a million others. You'd think these companies would have found someone ELSE to draw their character designs!)

for Femme artists:

Rumiko Takahashi: Inu Yasha and Ranma are some "standard" anime anyone should see.
Yu Watase: Tor Fantasy lovers and people who liked "The Neverending Story" may jump on her manga/anime.
Yu Asagiri: For those of you who may/may not know, she's the Hentai mistress of "Midnight Panther". Her art isn't just beautifully detailed, it can cut to downright gory at times.

Ugh...I can't stand cutesy anime. I'm more of a fan of occult/horror and realistically styled anime.

I'm particularly fond of the animation styles in JinRoh, the first segment of Memories (Magnetic Rose), Ghost in the Shell (I hate how they're making the new series look 'anime-ish'), Blood, Rurouni Kenshin OVAs, Cowboy Bebop (especially the movie. WOW! ), Perfect Blue, Millenium Actress, and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.

If they make more anime with art stylings like those, I'll be flocking to see them.

I personally don't care about the artistic style as long as the story is good. Great example is Love Hina. Very cute style. I like it. I hate the premise and script. I quit watching it after about five episodes.

As long as it follows my usual tastes - no giant robots (I'm not a thirteen year old male, thank you, I have no fascination with symbolic wang-waving contests), no "boring guy that every girl in the show wants to bonk for no apparent reason except that the viewers identify with him and so live vicariously through him in some sad little way" character, no gratuitous and random throwing-in of Christian religious terms for no apparent reason other than that it makes people think it's "deep" ... then I'm game.

And yes, that pretty much rules out Evangelion. ;) Though, again, I do like the artistic style there.

ok my favorite style of anime would be the style they used in berserk because the swords and armor looked awsome. but when you get into it thats just personal preferance.

cowboy bebop is definitly an excelent anime drawing wise. the animation is perfect, the guns are done really well.

but the animation in trigun is almost perfect. it's close to cowboy bebop acuracy. but they're not afraid to throw in big badly drawn cartoon heads which is absolutly hilariuos. plus it probably gives the animators a break so the next frames are better than the ones before the big heads.

sorry i forgot to say this... CG IS NOT i repeat NOT a form of anime. it is done on computers and i imagine requires half the skill of normal animation, now i'm not so anal that i would frown on an anime that used cg but an entirley cg movie is not anime to me. ziods pushes the envolop but it's a good anime so it's ok but things like pilot candidate that aren't any good on there own could never be good by adding cheep CG fights

No for me the cuter the style the better. Animes like slayers Ranma and urusei yatsura. The anime must have cute chicks and a good plot and all the animes above qualify for that. I have just seen an anime called Dna 2 that has cute chicks in it and is really funny. I don't see the point of watching artistic pshycobabble. Plenty of american movie makers out there for that kind of stuff. For example Dual meets my requirements for an anime Cute chicks,Funny,mechs no boring pshycobabble. Eva does not it has cute chicks,funny, but in the end turns into boring psychobabble.

Well... I would have to go with Ah! My Goddess and Love Hina drawings. BellDandy and Naru are SOOOOOOOO HOT, Especially BellDandy... ahem... Xcuse me... I mean, the coloring and drawing of the two animes are very nice, clear and well done. Yes Belldandy is drawn very well.

But other than the cute stuff, I would have to say Trigun or Cowboy Bebop are good. But in all essence, I think I like all anime drawings, except drawings that are blurry and too dark... and anime girls that are EXTREMELY big breasted, hentai fans should know what I am talking about...

Update dude,cel animation isn't done much anymore if at all. Things are still drawn, but all colour and effects are Computer Generated now.
If CG is done in Japan, it technically is anime.
Remember that in Japan anime refers to animation, from anywhere, period, and that here it refers to any animation from Japan, even CG animation.
