If it's manga, I can tell the art style of who's who.

But, when it's anime, well, it's kinda different. Manga artist doesn't have total control on what is being drawn on his/her anime. Not to mention, it's being handled by numerous painters, drawers, and artists. Then, you have to deal with the art director.

There are times that it amazes me that there are artists that are doing the anime and they can actually duplicate the actual image of the manga.

Buriki, the character designer behind Denpa Onna, Nagi no Asukara and Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai; if I ever see another anime announcement with his awesome style on the cover I will squeal like a little girl.

As for studios, KyoAni and Madhouse has the most distinct look. And Shaft, when I see really big artistic shortcuts being taken along with that overly cyan and yellow art style.

That said, a lot of people mistakenly thought Grisaia was a Shaft anime at certain points, so they're not THAT recognizable to the average watcher.


I'm pretty sure because the Monogatari series and Grisaia shared a character designer or something along those lines.


Yeah that's exactly why, but artistically it's a different style than Shaft anime when it comes to screenplay, colour palette and shading.

It's not that funny the second time.

But since we're here how many h-mangaka's art style do you recognise?

I've noticed that some animation studios and manga artists have distinctive art styles that are easy to recognize.

For example, a lot of times, when seeing an anime done by Kyoto Animation or P.A. Works, it's easy to tell that one of them was in fact the studio behind it.



The same goes for manga artists. Akira Toriyama, Hiromu Arakawa, and Akira Amano are some artists whose character designs I think are pretty recognizable.



So my question is: Are there any animation studios or specific artists whose work you can recognize before you know for a fact that it is their work?

This can also work for directors, too--or any other person who works behind the scenes. "Artist" doesn't necessarily have to refer to the people responsible for the drawings you see on the screen. (Take Akiyuki Shinbo, for example; if you see a head tilt, it's most likely his direction at work. )


i was actually mindfucked by the fact that amano designed the characters of psycho pass as well


I actually didn't even notice that those were her character designs at first. It had been a while since I'd seen REBORN!, so I didn't realize it until I saw her name pop up.


And I guess for something on the non-visual side, I've always found Hiroyuki Sawano's compositions to be pretty recognizable. I remember when I heard the music drop at the end of Aldnoah.Zero's first episode, I knew he had to be the one behind it.

Satoshi Urushihara, Masami Obari, Clamp, Akira Toriyama, Ume Aoki, Haruhiko Mikimoto(to a lesser extent) are probably the easiest to distinguish because their styles are just so unique...

For anime... asides from the Shaft Head Tilt™ which is more of a directional style and not art... you really can't attribute an art style to a particular studio because many character designers work on a per project basis. Just for example... KyoAni's K-On era character designs cannot be attributed to them since it's very similar to A-1's Kannagi and So Ra No Wo To so it's not unique to them.

Kyoto has a very distinctive style, same with P.A works. Next to that, the third easiest to tell would have to be SHAFT because of a few notable things *cough* head tilts *cough* And of course Ghibli can be identified without second thought
