Take an anime series (any random series) and imagine if it had a different director or produced by a different studio (pick any random director/studio). How you you think if would have turned out?

Ex. Suppose Bakemonogatari had been directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi. Senjougahara would probably be talking like this:

"My sharp tongue is the tongue THAT WILL PIERCE THE HAREMZ!!!!"
Or
"My staples and scissors WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENZ!!!

If Dragon Ball was done by a different studio, like say Madhouse, people would remember it even more fondly than they do now.

If Guilty Crown was not directed by Tetsuro Araki, Shu would most likely be a completely different character. I heard that Shu was based off of him. Also, I doubt that potato chip scene in Death Note would not have been as epic

Some trivia: Tetsuro Araki was the director of anime like Death Note, Highschool if the Dead, Attack on Titan, and as I mentioned earlier, Guilty Crown.

This for some reason makes me think of Hideaki Anno directing some random Shounen like Dragon Ball Z Oh God, no.

Also, controversial oppinion, I think Madoka Magica would have been much better if it hadn't been so SHAFT. Shinbo is definitely the perfect fit for the Monogatari franchise, but these days I find him to be more annoying than interesting most of the time. Maybe get Anno on that one, even though that would probably only add to the pretentiousness
Also, as Tetsuro Araki has been mentioned already, I would have liked him to direct Highschool DxD. As long as we don't get a sequel to HotD, that would probably be the next best thing.

If Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai (TWGOK) had gotten SHAFT'd instead...
It'd be just like a slightly lesser Monogatari.

If Nisekoi was directed by Onuma Shin instead of his ex-coworker's studio...actually, how would that have gone?

I actually think the animation in Dragonball holds up surprisingly well and I think it hold credit to a lot of the series's charm. Sure Madhouse might have made the passing landscapes more than just a few repeating frames, but I dont think thats really the important thing. Just look at GT for example. New artstyle and objectively much better animation but it just didn't feel the same.

If madhouse took care of Tokyo ghoul and followed the manga down to every little word, it would be like a gift from god...
