Is there any anime out there that is more stunning than Garden of Sinners?

Gohands Studio can score pretty highly; thinking of Mardock Scramble and K.

Either one can make Garden of Sinners look fairly bland.

Anything Makoto Shinkai has worked on is usually pretty impressive too.

So:

5 Centimers per Second,
Children Who Chase Lost Voices,
Place Promised in Our Early Days, and
Voices of a Distant Star.

Probably a bunch of others.

I'm sorry I missed Children Who Chase Lost Voices when it was here on CR.

There's also the Pale Cocoon OVA, and maybe Sakasama no Patema (might be overestimating, haven't seen it yet).

Shin Sekai Yori and The Pet Girl of Sakura Hall also had their moments from last season.





But mostly Gohands Studio's anime and Makoto Shinkai's movies. They're tops.

There are many 3-D animations that are visually stunning, and even so, some of the best-looking are terrible with story or have not gained enough ground in popularity.

Films from Studio Ghibli (Hayao Miyazaki) actually creates some amazing CG backgrounds, along with some very stunning animals or mechanics within some of their films. This is the case of Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, great visuals and amazing looking figures.

Then you have the series, very tough to say, since most that try to show off a stunning universe often show someone flying around somehow for no reason what-so-ever. I can tell you Ghost Hunt, Tokyo Babylon, Pumpkin Scissors, Tenchi Muyo Universe, and perhaps (for sake of argument) Mobile Suit Gundam 00 are each more stunning than the other just for love of them all.

Personally, if I want visuals I will turn to films, if I want more story I will go toward series.

Watch Speed Racer, the cars there are "visually stunning".

I haven't seen Garden of Sinners, but for me, most anything from P.A. Works is visually stunning. Just looking at visuals, Angel Beats! is probably their least impressive title, and it's not shabby either. I was particularly blown away by the visuals in Hanasaku Iroha.

P.A. Works titles:
- True Tears
- Canaan
- Angel Beats!
- Hanasaku Iroha
- Another
- Tari Tari
- RDG: Red Data Girl

I'm surprised nobody has said it, but Summer Wars. But other than that, maybe Makoto Shinkai works, and I would also say Eve no Jikan.

Production value can definitely add to any story. Keep in mind you don't need to have an action packed anime to get something with high value. Sometimes just creating the world in a visually striking way can make the story feel more believeable.

Difficult to judge, IMO. For example, I am frequently stunned by the visuals in many '80s anime, since they had to be created without CG, but several modern shows impress me with what CG has made possible (as opposed to anime in the early '00s, much of which had not quite gotten a handle on how to make CG look good).
