The new art style is closer to the novels, fights look a lot more dynamic now, and it fits a lot more to the DxD atmosphere...I personally love it

Out of the 5 episodes studio passione released 01 had the best style. You can see they they tried their best, they had something to prove, and a chip on their shoulder, legit. After that the quality went down. I don’t want this to fail, I just want them to put in more effort, 5 episodes of theirs, only 1 demonstrated their abilities as a studio. TNK had shitty angles, and less frames in their actions sequences, but the rest of the show was more immersive. No offense to anyone, but I just want file down the chins of everyone in the show.

If you noticed in episode S401, they made an effort to fix scythe-like jaws of some of the characters, then 02 we see it again.

I think TNK’s art is the ‘new’ style, way before its time. I can’t bear to call it old, because it isn’t, technically. The stuff passione is doing has been seen for the past decade or so. Other studios put it more effort to polish, passione don’t, except episode 01.

The people in this thread have spoken bub, 1300 want TNK’s style back for a reason. Not even 1/3 like this gruel. Do you think この素晴らしい異世界‘s style is generic? What other anime do you think have good art styles? I’m curious, please tell me No Game No Life is another generic style.

No they haven't bub. This thread was made before even episode 0 aired and there was only the preview.

The character designer for TNK did daimidaler too

Just ignore posts trying to use outdated poll like that. Let them take refuge in those meaningless number.

Because the only poll that matter is the JP one and the author's vote.

The Anime you posted is truly beautiful. Is that what you like? But you haven’t answered my question what if No Game No Life? What are your favorites?

Define generic and unique. Most anime design artist tend to have some notable flair, making it easy for fan to recognize their work, but at the same time nothing that special.

The designer of Gundam Seed/Fafner for example, is very easy to spot out of several anime, but just as many have decried that style as generic and same-face.

TNK designer for DxD has a recognizable flair, but ultimately he's not unique. Same with NGNL or Konosuba.

I actually like the design of TNK. Can't say the same for the director's treatment of DxD.
I also like the design of Hero. Been a fan of him since Gravion.
Both are still generic though.

Unique in my book... tends to be something like this:

Half-way through the season, and I am finally used to the new art. The only remaining problem: most of the girls aren't attractive in their new guises. Kunou is cute. Serafall looks ok (but I can never figure out who she is until someone calls her by name). Koneko and Asia have become double-butt ugly. The rest are plain janes. I am praying that best-girl Ravel is better when she appears.

They do seem to do better with male character designs: I don't have any complaints there. But DxD needs artists who can draw attractive females.

You mean the old character design? Yes, They are absolutely stunning. But the animation is stiff and looks like a GIF sometimes with no fluent actions except for the Boobies bouncing and Season 1-3's ending credits.

The New Art are more focus on it's animation and the characters are not so hard-detailed like the previous ones but still look beautiful and attractive as well. You just need an eye that is so discerning to these things...

@Mattinator95 That's the reason why I started reading LN (back then).

I might have some questions, aiming for the same, regarding my post at msg55324264 (since I only received one negative, one neutral result):
  1. How can ... supposed to be transparent hair, psychedelic eyes, (a thick line as nose), and an award mouth: position as well as gesture, so current Koneko be cute? Crazy piggy might be my best nickname for her in that shot. (Vol9, New Life, P2 on original - imo no direction to LN but further away to awkwardness)
  2. [b]Have I lost any sense on what's cute, also the creator (LN source), and is this what's supposed to be cute nowadays? (I could ask, if just "younger members" might be answering, but i'd rly like the opinion on that question, so .. plz)
  3. Can you give me any tips to ignore things like that (if you at least understand my point of view)?

(I'd like to to know, if you've read the LN, if not since when (year) you've started watching the anime.)

They copy the current art style in the LN with some buffs on the cheeks and a pointed chin, That's how they animate this... Koneko looks pretty cute tho.

You said it yourself, the new art is not as detailed like previous art. I mean it still looks good, but the old art was definitely better.

TBH new art style feels like they are trying to appeal to those who watch it just for the bobs. While they are an integral part of the show, I think story comes first. The story for season 4 was good, but yeah the art style. Kiba looks deformed, and most of the girls look weird now. Asia is too "endowed" now, and Rias looks super young and cute instead of calm and collected like she is supposed to be. The fight scenes... I don't rly care, I could go for either one.

At first I thought it looks nice, overall new art style is better in my opinion but... old Xenovia was much more kawaii and Rias doesn't give the same feeling anymore.

I think it look like a cheap hentai. I only watch up to the 2nd season was going to get back in to it but With what i was reading about Season 3 and what i have seen with the new art style of Hero I just going to skip it all. Read the Books maybe not. I would just go watch some other anime. How to not summon a demon load seems good and looks good to.

I didn't like the new seasons character design as well. But somehow, fourth seasons animation seems like to me much more quality than old 3's. Old fight scenes seem like gif, but, the new one has quality staff. I really liked sairaorg vs kiba,xenovia,rossweisse's animation. Maybe you're too hung up on the past seasons? Still DxD New the best season for me though

i don't really mind the new art style,because what i always wanted from DxD is it to have better animation
although the animation is decent,but it's obviously much better than old animation,so i'm quite happy that they changed the animation studio

The walking animations and some scenes of season 4 look like unfinished dogshit.
In a manner you have to wonder why they did release it.
You never had that in season 1-3.
So I dont understand why everyone kepps praising the season 4 animations when they are less consistent, therefore worse.

Not a big fan at all. The first one imo is incredibly iconic. You could place the original DxD art style in any other anime and you can tell it's DxD. (for some reason it always reminded me of Code Geass and Detective Conan tho, maybe there are some art similarities)

Oh well, it had to happen with the studio change. I don't know if it's true or not, but I heard that the studio was changed because the TNK director had their own ideas of where they wanted the anime to go.

People say it's more like the Light Novel artwork. I honestly don't care, lol. I just don't like it nearly as much as the 2012 anime artwork. Even when I look at the Light Novel artwork I feel like they could have used that art + the 2012 color palette.

YOU, you crying, cause your little girls "aren't looking that hot"...

I can understand that "amazing job" in seasons 1-2, but 3? TNK fucking ruined the anime, cut out too many important things, not to mention those 3 original episodes at the end that NTR-loving idiot director put in it. it feels like they just wanted to end the anime with that shitty kiss on the beach. (which was not supposed to happen)

hero was trash? Passione fixed everything TNK did wrong, Whether it's in the adaption, the art style.. EVERYTHING was better than TNK's.

"oppai dragon bullshit"? The LN/Anime was about that from the beginning. TNK (especially that idiot director) tried to create their own story and it came back to them.. pretty sad, right? (not really)

Plz bring old art style back it was sooo good and the new art style looks kinda childish .
May be the old studio changed the storyline or some of the arcs but their art style was better. May be it was different from original but it was better than original as not always original has to be the absolute.
I hope they bring old art style back in season 5.
Peace

Yeah, right... did you hear that, Yanagisawa Tetsuya, season 4 is not canon. :D

And if it's "badly written" like you said, blame the author, the idiot director of season 3 can replace him.

I fully blame the author who took another full season for Issei to finally realize his feelings, when the director of season 3 made it feel more organic and natural, as well more meaningful.
Since in season 4 the female characters all just go: Oh it seems Issei has a bit ptsd form being killed by his first girlfriend. "Dont worry Issei we wont do that" And Issei is like "Ok cool guess we can all date now".

Sorry but this is just dogshit writing. I would much prefer the director of season 3 taking over the light novel.

You don't understand, that loving NTR idiot director wanted to finish the anime with that shitty scene on the beach, at least that's how it felt, which means NO MORE SEASONS, NO MORE DXD. And even if they'd made season 4 after that, it would have completely changed the plot, which would have made all the people who read the LN to drop it.
