I'm not an anime expert, but I have always liked Naruto and found the action to be very well executed in certain episodes. (Mainly in episodes that change up the anime style for fighting scenes.) Recently I've been trying to find an anime that's much shorter, and has equally strong visuals.

I've looked into AoT and Gargantia, and both of them certainly meet my standard of visual appeal, but I'm hoping someone can direct me to some other anime as well. Preferably nothing too fan-servicey, Gargantia is already pushing it with Bellows' booty shorts, the bikini's, etc... Hopefully it's somewhat recent, generally attractive characters, includes action... this is probably not too specific of a request, so hopefully some people can suggest their faves to me.

I find PA Works titles very visually appealing. Particularly liked the color schemes and backgrounds in 'Another.' I don't really have much of an eye for art though.

Anything else to go on besides visual appeal? I'd recommend Shin Sekai Yori. There's not really much action but I found the story and artwork to be amazing. Fate/Zero is an action anime with good story and great production value.

Macross frontier movies kinda blow a lot of things out of the water, you have 50 billion lasers 60 billion explosions, 2 really hot chicks singing behind your Valkyrie.

my point is there is so much pew pew pew that 3xpew is not enough 4xpew is needed

I second PA Works on visual appeal. Though there's not much action sequences in most of them ( aside from Canaan and Angel Beats! ), if that's what you're looking for. But whenever I hear "visually appealing anime", I think of PA Works. ^^;;
