So, I feel kinda bad I didn’t end up posting yesterday for this, but I was not feeling up to writing. I had stuff I was doing and then I played a game with a friend, and then I had to finish up my other post, so but the time I was going to sit down and do it, I was just too tired to do it.

I’m making up for it by answering both day 16 and 17’s prompts today.

Day 16’s is

Anime with the Best Animation

A while back, I actually wrote up a list about this. It showed ten anime titles I thought had the most impressive and beautiful artwork and animation. Here’s the link to that.

Obviously I don’t want to just leave it at that. Yeah, I still believe all of those anime titles have really appealing art, but here I’ll just add to that list. I have watched some more anime since then, and there have been other animes that have stood out to me with their art and animation.

March Comes in Like a Lion has some of the most simplistic and gorgeous visuals I’ve ever seen. The second I watched the opening I was already in love with it, and the show just proves the point. I love the way the people are drawn in a simple, but realistic way, and the backgrounds are incredibly detailed and just gorgeous. And the symbolism of the art styles changing, like when Rei is shown in monochrome, or when the background goes black and focuses now on just one single object just blows me away every time. Not only is the writing amazing, but the way it’s shown in art just ties it all together. And I’ll most likely expand on my love of this show in a later post.

The Ancient Magus’ Bride. I have been sucked into this anime. I love it so much. Even more so than when I talked about it previously during this challenge. And the art is one of the reasons I’ve been loving it so much. In this one, both the people shown and the backgrounds are equally beautiful. The creatures shown as well. I just can hardly put it into words how beautiful this show is. And same as March Comes in Like a Lion, I’ll have a separate post later on just for ranting about how great it is.

I also love the painted look

The last thing I want to mention isn’t exactly the anime where I like the art. It’s the Tokyo Ghoul manga. Now, I still haven’t read much past what would be season 1, I just need to sit down and read it when I’m not exhausted so I can pay attention. But what I’ve read has some interesting art. The beginning has some, ah, lackluster art. It kind of disappointed me. But probably by volume 4 or 5, I began noticing how anatomically correct it is. And that impresses me a lot. The way the characters are drawn is more realistic than majority of anime/manga, but still remains cartoony enough that it’s not a purely realistic drawing. I’ve seen the first episode of the anime, and not only was the pacing all over the place, the art was just not the same. I’ve had that thought in the back of my head for months, just never knew where to place it. And I guess here is okay.

Wow, I went a bit over with that prompt, but I guess that’s why it was better for me to wait until I wasn’t tired.

Day 17:

Favorite Supporting Male Character

When I first saw this prompt, I immediately thought of Phichit Chulanont from Yuri on Ice. I don’t know why, but I’ve always found him really endearing, and since I watched the show initially, I’ve always liked him. He’s just a really good friend to Yuri, and he’s so passionate about his country and skating, that I can’t help but smile watching him.

Of course, there are plenty of other supporting male characters I love, such as Shinsou from My Hero Academia, and so many characters from Haikyuu I don’t even want to begin, Kazuma from Noragami, the list could go on. I don’t want to write much more on this, since I already took up so much space with the previous prompt. Maybe I’ll make a post just about this, since I’ve never done one. So I can really give my opinions on it.

Hope you enjoyed this, sorry it’s so massive.
