I mean there are a lot. It depends on whether or not you want the characters to stand out in any significant way or not. Some of my favorite shows don't have much in the way of character design, like Mushi-shi for instance. Most of the characters besides Ginko are incredibly, well, normal. But they don't need to be extravagant or memorable, they are simply people that Ginko meets along the way.

Although i do tend to have issue with character designs that have "same-face" syndrome. I haven't really ever watched SAO, but a lot of the characters appear so similar in the face that you have to rely on what they're wearing to tell them apart, which i think if anything the face is the one thing that should be unique to a character. And while faces are one of the more difficult things to design, it always pays off. I've seen enough shows where the artists decide to give each background character a unique face, and while it isn't really necessary, it shows that they know what goes into a character and i appreciate it.

I love the show but Kuroko no Basket is bland.

I also never liked the way Clannad characters looked.

K-On has amazing character designs are you kidding me look at them






Now, Knights of Sidonia has some god-awful character designs.


And Log Horizon, every single character in the show somehow manages to be an absolute eyesore.

Flowers of Evil was rotoscoped though



Meaning the characters are traced over actual actors.

I would say that Re:Zero and Gundam SEED have bland as well as wooden character designs.

Cyber Team in Akihabara is the ugliest.



As for the actual question, I'm not a fan of the school of brightly-colored cute girl designs found in shows like SAO, Re:Zero or Izetta. There's nothing technically wrong with those designs, they just seem bland and unimaginative to me.

The rotoscope actually grew on me over a few episodes.

It wasn't a great show and a lot of things annoyed me, but I'd say it's worth a watch. Plus that ending song gives me chills every time I hear it.

On the other hand, Baccano also has some of the most generic character designs I've ever seen and those designs are one of the reasons I won't be playing Digimon World Re:Digitize anytime soon.

In my opinion, anime that are visually unique are practically an endangered species. This is mainly a problem with romance, slice of life, and comedy anime.

What i'm going to write is my personal opinion, so please don't get offended by that. Everyone has their's own thoughts. Got it?

Let's see... One would be Knights of Sidonia. Animation is great but character design, not so great.

Another one is Digimon Adventure tri. Hate me if you wish but new design compared to the original is something i don't know what to say. Sure, i'm used to it but...

Lastly, Pokémon Sun and Moon (anime). Sure, looks okay but with Ash's new look and pic below, i don't have anything else to say.



Like i said, it's my opinion.
