Post Reply I hate to say it, but I won't watch an anime if I don't like the artwork.

personally prefer original art style to "pretty" ones

the problem with making all characters pretty is that you lose expression and real emotion of the story.

I liked Gintama a lot. I think that had a pretty original and diverse style. Pretty anime can't help a bad story.

yes I have done that, I will usually watch the first episode and if I can't stand the art style or story, I'll drop it.

I'm pretty easy to please with animation as long as the story is ok. I've noticed some shoujo tends to have pretty mediocre animation like Lovely Complex, Kimi ni Todoke, Special A, and others. But they're still very watchable I can easily over-look it.

The only time I've ever dropped an anime because I just couldn't stand the animation was Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo. Those awful layered textures made me want to stab my eyes out, I just couldn't handle it at all. Sort of funny because I've only ever seen people rave about how awesome it looks

Lately I've become a big fan of Shaft animation. I think it's off putting for a lot of people but now after having recently watched Monogatari, Nisekoi, and Hidamari Sketch I really can't get enough. I love the odd backgrounds, angles, and strange cutaways.

I'll do the same, but more of a quick stereotyping than because of art. The grittier and weirder it is, the more I'm willing to watch it. The ones from high budget studios, I'm willing to watch. But the more trendy the art style is, the less I'm willing to watch it. Doubly so if it's a romcom. Despite some popularity, I won't watch Chaika or Nyaruko or Miss Monochrome because the art tells me the story won't be my thing.

If you can stand watching Aku no Hana (Flowers of Evil), you passed the test. Nothing will scare you any more.

I wouldn't say I'm not guilty with that... example, Akira... everybody says it's really good, but I just can't bring myself to watch it or even rent it. Some older anime have great stories too, but for me to go back and look for them to watch, I wouldn't even try doing so. Unless, if that's the only entertainment in the house, that you would actually sit in the couch and just watch it... you know, when kids watch the Saturday shows... That feeling, you want to watch it with them even if the animation sucks badly.

but I'm not easily bothered with animation, it's the story that bothers me, although I feel guilty if I didn't finish watching the whole show.. so sometimes I get back to them when I remember.

Also. I'm more of the genre type.. I usually drop the show if it's not my kind of genre.

The only anime i stopped watching because of the animation was Mekakucity Actors. It didn't suit well with me.

I think we all have done that sometime, that is some what of the anime idea, is drawings animated into a story, and sometimes the drawing tells half the story, to this day i still haven't been able to catch up more on one piece, i swear the mouths, it like they sat and went - i bet i can get this guys mouth wider then you can - DEAL! and then turned into anime, it does affect how i see anime greatly, some have a good story and so i can get past the art, some the art is too strong where even if there is a good story, it is blocked out by weird animation.
