Wow I was about to minirant about how I don't like prevailing, modern anime character designs and wish we could go back to more of what's ITT, but this just summed it up. The modern style is so flat, muted, and listless. Of course, it doesn't apply to all modern works, but I just look at Dragon Maid and wonder how we got that from Lucky Star. Or comparing the Project Sekai vocaloids to the original designs.

No. 239483

Yup. The simpler the designs are, the easier they are to animate fluidly. If you look at older anime, they tend to have a lot more detailed stills with heavy contrasting shadows and a lot less actual animation. That being said, I prefer this a lot more, even if there is less motion.

I miss old Tanemura (and old CLAMP) series so much. There is something about her old art that I liked better than her newer stuff. It was more..playful? Girly? Fancy? Not sure how to put it. Feel the same about CLAMP's art.
This was my first true guilty pleasure. Back then I would have never admitted to like it but in secret it somehow fascinated me. It was my first shounen ai I think. Sad it never ended.
I generally miss shoujo styles. Everything looks like seinen with girls now and I am not a fan of those puppet faces with perfectly round eyes and flat, thin hair.

One thing I can appreciate about Lovely Complex is the fact that despite being so tall Risa is not masculine at all. I’m tall myself and that’s what I always appreciated about the manga (though personally I would never date a guy shorter than me no matter how well we got along). Pretty sure there was a part where some guys basically called her a man to insult her.

Rutee is worst girl but I can't deny she's cute. I won't sperg too much about Tales to not shit up the thread but Destiny and Destiny 2 in particular are very shoujo, so much more shoujo than Tales ever is these days. I love when Inomata would make ridiculous loads of art for the games just because she loved them, you can tell when it went from a job she was passionate for to just any old job, the art she made vastly decreased as the series went on and now Bamco just hires moids to ape her art style.

Excuse fucking you nonny, I think you mean "most based". She doesn't fit with Stahn at all though, I always thought they were one of the most out of character couples in the entire series and had no romantic chemistry. Because Stahn was more concerned with Leon tbh

Anyway Inomata was great for bringing in a more shoujo approach to the series but her designs are pretty dated and only got worse with time, I mean what the fuck was the deal with Velvet? But that said, she had a ton more character and soul than whatever bland promotional artwork Bamco is pushing out now.

You're right anon, Rutee is 100% based. She's just not a good love interest. Stahn had better chemistry with pretty much everyone else in the party, Leon included. I loved what she had going on with Mary though. It would have been neat if they took over the orphanage together instead of her and Stahn. Yeah Mary has a husband and whatever but it's way easier to kill him than keep him alive and things are better and canon with him dead anyways.
Inomata's designs definitely began to decline some time around Graces, I think that's when it became more of a paycheck than a passion thing to her. Milla's og design is a mess and Velvet is oof.

I hate female focus harem anime in general but Sister Princess was my first back when I was maybe 12. I remembered watching this because of how cute it looks with all the girls and it was pretty wholesome. I didn't know what the harem genre was at that time and surprisingly it has no fanservice.

I also used to wear a bandana all day long, even when I was at home, because I wanted to be literally her.
The funny part is that I never truly watched saber marionette until I was like 20 years old, I just loved Lime's design and her silly underwear outside her pants like a super hero.

I also remember wanting to be literally her at some point, mostly because I wanted to have a cool best friend like vanilla and work at a coffee shop like her, wearing cute maid outfits and so on. I just didn't really want to acknowledge the sexual undertones I guess.
But then, one day a girl wanted to roleplay with me that we were catgirls like vanilla and chocola, it got awkward because she made it all sexual when I just wanted to pretend I was best friends with someone and that some guy just happened to like us both.

Lmao I remember when Love Hina was big there was this whole article in our weeb magazine how it is super problematic and advocates violence against men. How it is a great example of deep rooted man hate in anime/manga since violence against men is not a joke.
I was a teen when I read the article and stopped buying the magazine after that. There's loli characters in harem anime, but the boring MC getting slapped is what he deemed evil kek.

You just unlocked an ancient memory within me. I remember in like 2006 I downloaded a video streaming software platform and this “sensitive pornograph” yaoi was on it. I wish I could remember what the software was called. There was weird shit on there but also normal stuff like documentaries about mother eagles. It was like YouTube but you had to download a desktop application to even access it. I think it started with a V? Did anyone else discover this yaoi on there?! I watched it so many times. Doesn’t the sub dude get defiled by a broomstick or something fucked up like that? I was like 10 years old and couldn’t believe what I was watching.
