Many people are complaining about the art change in the anime. If you watched episode 17, you will see the characters' faces are much rounder than before, and oh, they have longer, more prominent eyelashes too.

Honestly, I am not concerned about the changes because it makes the characters look more realistic, and the rounder faces fatten their entire appearance, which means...<you guessed it!> NO MORE SKINNY LEGS!!!!

And I think they look hotter too! Just look at Tadashi

AFTER


What do you think?

At first I thought this was a manga topic, but no...anime. Okay^^.

I think the art style of episode 17 is only a one-time thing. The art director of episode 17 is Shuichi Hara, who is totally new to the team. That is why it looks different than any of the other episodes. The artwork of episode 18 will go back to the more usual style, judging from the preview. (Unless Shuichi Hara is helping out with that too~)

But Shuichi Hara's art supervision is unique, huh? The characters looked like they were more well-built (no non-formed-as-hell legs and arms, right?). Plus their hair styles were more detailed and followed closer to their hair styles in the manga. Plus eyelashes were more visible, but some see that as an annoying thing because they say it looks like mascara^^.

The style of this episode reminds me of the drawing style of manga chapter 66...sorta...Only this is much better^^.

So it goes back to the same style, huh? Shucks!
Shuichi Hara's art is definitely a breath of fresh air- pity they won't continue with that art!
But I will still keep my fingers crossed!

I actually like both of them..sometimes I was really annoyed with the freakish skinny long legs and long arms..but I guess that's what makes the anime so unique from the others.
