While browsing around on message boards I've been seeing a lot more complaints about Shaft's unique animation style than I was expecting. Personally I can't get enough of it. I love the weird camera angles, crazy backgrounds, and strange cutaways a lot.

So I've decided to make a poll about the subject to gauge the Crunchyroll communities opinions on this matter.

Here's some GIF's as an example:
Warning: Epic head tilts ahead, not for the faint of heart!...or maybe faint of neck...

Yeah, I love their style.

They are one of the few shops currently producing shows that can actually animate a show well. Their lighting is awesome, editing is usually solid, and their artwork is top shelf. Extremely talented animators.

My favorite Shaft series is probably Hidamari Sketch, since I'm a sucker for a good moe slice of life comedy.

It probably has the most simple art of any series I've seen them do, but even it has all sorts of unique backgrounds and editing.

Anyways, I'm not surprised by the poll results so far. Most of the forum threads I read where people bashed the Shaft style was made by Nisekoi manga fans. I'm guessing that's probably the case of a vocal minority disliking something that the majority of anime fans either enjoy or are ambivalent towards.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Wow, still no hate. Maybe I should have had a less strongly worded category like "Dislike" as well. Oh well!

Love it. I have a couple of titles* in mind that I wish they'd adapt.
