    Default Favorite Animation Style

    Not sure if Im posting this on the correct board but it seems to me to be a pretty general Anime topic.

    What is your favorite style of animation? My examples will be fairly limited as I have only seen so much but I would be very eager to read everyone's opinion.

    Do you like a grittier more natural animation such as Neon Genesis Evagelion or Ghost in the Shell?
    Do you like the how Cowboy Bebop had parts that were computer animated? Or maybe shows that utilize the computer graphics a lot?
    Also there is Anime that has very "clean" (my word for it, though it may not be the best for what im trying to describe) animation like Avatar the Last Airbender.

    Feel free to mention any other "type" of animation I may have left out!

    Personally I like the gritty animation style of a show like NGE or Ghost in the Shell. I like it most because I feel like it truly reflects the work put in by the animation team and I love the people who dedicate their time for my enjoyment.
    I despise the computer graphics for the most part, even in Cowboy Bebop I felt it was out of place and just looked weird. I would not be against giving an honest effort to watch and maybe change my opinion on a CG Anime but I just feel that goes against what I believe Anime is.

    Looking forward to reading everyone's opinion on this subject!

    Cheers
    -Jason

    Hm... Favorite animation, huh. Well, from your list, I'd choose the first and the third choice. Most importantly, it must NOT be untidy. I really hate untidy animation. When it's messy, it totally distracts me, and I will get kinda irrirated. But if the story line is good, I will always keep going. But most anime that is not deprived from any manga, the art is normally more unique and tidy. Most manga based anime are really awesome too. As long it's hard work from the crew, it'll always be lovable.
    May peace bestow this world,
    May our hearts unite.
    Life may not be smooth as pearl,
    But pray for our decisions to be always right.

    Life may be hard, it's a big pain in the butt. But hey, who says behind all those pain, can't hide some happiness ?

    Tidy is a good word for this discussion. I agree that is an important aspect to quality and likable animation.

    Personally I would classify Naruto as a cleaner animation style. The colors are very vivid and rich and it looks as if the entire scene is active or alive. Its different than NGE or Ghost in the Shell (what I call gritty) because in those Anime there are times where the scenes are less active to clarify the point of emphasis.

    I agree but Cowboy Bebop did it and thats considered a master piece. Some people actually applaud that aspect of the show. I realize everyone has their own opinion but thats an opinion that surprises me. I liked Cowboy Bebop but I didnt understand why they did that.

    Has anyone seen this show on Adult Swim


    The show itself may not be horrible but I hate the animation to the point I wouldnt watch it without some serious persuasion. Like Sarah Michelle Gellar will me kind of persuasion haha.

    Kyoto comes across to me as more a fine art, painterly at times and lots of eye candy.
    SHAFT anime is kind of the polar opposite, crisp, graphic, and not afraid to take a chance when it comes to design, direction, and overall look!

    I love these two the most!

    Yeah. Honestly, i really hate the whole 'computer generated, half 3d, half 2d' kind of style. That's the reason i'm not going near High School of the Dead for a while. That and the fact that half the time all that's on the screen is tits and other private areas. I'm better than that. But that's besides the point! I just don't like it. When they try to make the characters 3D sometimes just doesn't look right. I prefer the 'clean' style... Or what i think is clean. I'm not sure what you mean by that exactly. I like the styles of K-On... And also Angel Beats. But really it all depends on what type of anime it is. With K-On, and other light, funny type anime's you usually get that sort of 'clean' feel.

    I really don't know what I'm talking about anymore though.

    I did like the style of Neon Genesis Evangelion!

    What do I like!!!??

    I like series that just bleed style; GAINAX's original series tend to top the list, with Production IG and Madhouse making frequent visits. Style works in a lot of ways - it could be just wild art direction, animation that makes thrilling use of perspective and motion to back scenes and not just for the sake of it, or rich environmental design done in great detail or with a vivid palette. This also extends, outside of animation, to series that make wonderful use of music (NOIR, BECK, any .hack series, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell, Samurai Champloo, etc.), though that's outside of OP's topic.

    FLCL, Panty & Stocking, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Ghost in the Shell, Eden of the East, The Sky Crawlers, Cowboy Bebop, Redline, The Tatami Galaxy, Katanagatari, Bakemonogatari, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Dennou Coil, Samurai Champloo, 30 Centimeters per Second, House of Five Leaves, Mobile Suite Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, and Princess Mononoke.

    Yeah, I agree, cell animation is pretty good. But I've also got to say I love the way Bones' style, for most of their works at least. My personal favorite though would be Soul Eater, the way it can be so bright and so dark at the same time.
