Code Geass and Death Note had good graphics for their time period, but they're outdated now. To date, I would say

3. Puella Magi Madoka Magica (Watch that movie though, fight scenes are damn beautiful)
2. One Punch Man (Madhouse does it again)
1. Fate franchise (Hands down Fate wins. The only right answer to this thread)

Maybe this is kind of a stupid one but I would say Asterisk war was probably the most creative that i've seen recently on the graphics and style. I'm not really into anything with that 3d graphics stuff (example: Million Doll opening sequence)

A lot of shows are trying to incorporate 3D animation now and while i know that this will soon be the future of anime, i have a hard time watching it when it's used in most shows. I'm sure i would enjoy RWBY and Knights of Sidonia, but i simply cannot get past the choppier bits of animation. I suppose the problem for me is that it's not consistent throughout and it gives me a headache.

But that's not to say that all 3D animation is bad. Hell, when a studio gets it right its really damn good. And the best example of good 3D animation in an anime, i believe, lies in ETOTAMA. Sure they only use it during the battle sequences of the show, but when it is done it's done so well. A big problem that shows have when they try to add a 3D animation sequence is that they can't quite get the characters to appear as they normally do by conserving the original art style that is used in the normal 2D animation and it hardly feels right. When it is done in ETOTAMA, they change the character designs altogether so that they may play to their strengths in the animation. The 3D models always appear in a unique and noticeable way, and they don't try to seamlessly transition between the two styles. Everything is smooth and the motion is fluid, yet they don't try to make it look realistic, its still as cartoony as ever. They use the difference in the animation styles as a point in the plot so while it's obvious when you see the transition, it doesn't feel out of place.

ETOTAMA is free to watch on crunchyroll right now by the way, and if you haven't seen it i encourage you to watch a few episodes. Its a unique show and funny at that

Strong contenders for me are Gundam 00 (especially the movie), Hibike! Euphonium, Little Witch Academia, Soukyuu no Fafner: Exodus, and Concrete Revolutio. The latter is less visually stunning and more visually unique.



This particular bit blew me away.

And it successfully employed 3D animation as part of the overall canvas, I might add.

True true. While it did stick out a bit, so did everything else in that show, so it all worked together nicely

Objectively, I have no idea. My eyes aren't to good at telling good animation from bad, and I judge graphical quality primarily on the art style.

If i'm going to parrot what i've heard from others, then i'll say Fate/Stay Night; Unlimited Blade Works - but i've never even seen the darn thing and don't really care to.

Bearing that in mind, to me personally, the visuals of Hanayamata have always really stood out. It's one of a very small number of shows where I took note of the graphics. But as i said, art style is more of what I pay attention to, and perhaps that show's art style just resonated with me personally. So Hanayamata is my "non-parrot" subjective answer.
