I've always been a huge fan of Kyoto Animation... It’s known for its high production values~

What is your favorite series of KyoAni? And what are the specifics thing you like about it? ( like the scenery, bgm, etc. )

Although having said that, I really don't have a favorite one. I mean look at how beautiful KyoAni is ~ but if have to say one...

it's definitely Lucky☆Star! You all might not agree, but for me Lucky☆Star has a special place in my heart

P.S I love all of their works ☆☆☆

Bit hard to not say Clannad After Story but other than that definitely Chuunibyou (first season at least)

I haven't watched many animes from Kyoto Animation, but if I can pick one, that would be Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu. I have never laugh that hard with a series in ages. One of the best comedic spin-offs I have ever seen.

Aaaahhhh, I remember all the characters who gave me diabetes.

I guess I'll have to go with Hyouka, K-On, Haruhi, Kobayashi and Fullmetal Panic.

But if you ask me what is top one, then Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid. Something that isn't a glossy moe anime by KyoAni? Yes.

Mine is probably Hyouka, though I also really like Koe no Karachi and Chuunibyou

K-on is the masterpiece of moe.

So many great anime. But nothing else matches the impact of the original Haruhi series. The amount of creative energy in that show is overwhelming.

ironically, out of their anime, the one that i legitemitely enjoying is Nichijou...

Yes! Haruhi Series was one of the best! I Remember singing God Knows and Lost my music with my sister. Fun old days!

The hilarious Nichijou just edges out The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Let's start the circlejerk! I like Full Metal Panic, K-On!, After Story, Nichijou and of course Koe no Katachi. Yeah they don't mess around when creating anime. High production value is to be expected. I do hope they make/adapt some more action-oriented stuff again. FMP 2nd Raid and Fumoffu were great.

That's definitely my favorite too and have a special place in my heart not to mention it was my first KyoAni anime <3

Clannad: Mou Hitotsu no Sekai, Tomoyo-hen - I love this ova, for me, this far better than the main story in the anime(I didn't play the VN) I really felt the emotions and I felt pitiful to the MC who's trying hard to become acceptable into the society.

Hyouka -this is really good, but the open-ending is kinda underwhelming

Maid Dragon - I'm a fan of Cool-Kyou Shinsha's work, and the anime perfectly adapted it

Nichijou - Funny, cheap comedy but still makes me laugh, gif gold mine

I haven't seen it but I've already read the manga but people says it's good: Koe no Kitachi

Easily Clannad: After Story, as it's one of my favourite series of all time. Then again, I loved pretty much all of their stuff up until Hyouka aired, and they went into adapting mainly mediocre light novels. After that they made a looot of "meh" anime I didn't enjoy as much, sadly [*]

But I'll always remember and enjoy most of their older series, they are just this good, no matter how many years have passed.

It's hard to choose which one is my favorite but I always love the micro expressions/reactions their characters make.

Most definitely Haruhi - the main series, movie, and spinoff.
And Yuki is best girl.

Hyouka. What I like about it: atmosphere and background music. Oh, and Fuyumi Irisu, because she is so charming.

Clannad is the only thing I've ever really liked from them as I don't really care for moe slice of life stuff but Violet Evergarden sounds like it will be good.

I guess I would go with Nichijou, if it's to pick just one. The anime is brilliant, just brilliant. I love this:

Haruhi strikes me as well, even though the second season is terrible. Okay, it's been a very long time since I watched, so I guess I should rewatch to judge more properly. The movie was splendid as well...

Nichijou is my highest rated TV Series by them and ngl why I love the crazy comedy scenes and relaxed atmosphere in that show the reason why it's 9/10 instead of 10/10 is mostly the insane animation quality. The show is a constant visual treat that just doesn't really have (m)any equals in all of TV anime. Truly superb. I find it very charming how KyoAni just throws out tons of budget just to have fun. It translates into the viewing experience imo. You can feel how little fucks they gave and how they just had fun.

I also loved the Koe no Katachi movie for its emotions and characters and interactions and everything. Very touching movie with an awesome cast.

Entry wise, it is Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. I thought the movie was well constructed story. I enjoyed Kyon's monologues, the animation, the soundtrack, new look haruhi (+bonus Ponytail clip), and that twist with ryoko

Franchise wise, it is k-on. All characters were likeable, the things they would do other than practice music prevented repetition , has a great ending, their interactions with each other were entertaining, humor was spot on, and obviously music was good

Hibike Euphonium, a very underrated anime. Amazing characters, soundtrack and don't get me started in the glorious visual apeal. Different from others slice of life animes, hibike tell us a story, we are going somewhere and the relation between each one is spot on.

I haven't watched that many by them, but the most enjoyable for me was Amagi Brillant Park. Though Nichijou is also great.

Being my favorite studio. 4 of my favorite are even done by KyoAni. It's enough for me that it brought Clannad Afterstory.
Most of their works are rounding about Slice of Life which is one my favorite genres as well.

I love how the always work hard for their projects in all aspects. Furthermore, their current policy of adaption choices is amazing.

I have seen everything KyoAni produced so far apart from Munto.

My Top 3 TV Series from them are:

3. Nichijou
2. Hibike Euphonium S2
1. Clannad After Story

My Top 3 Movies from them are:

3. Koe no Katachi
2. Tamako Love Story
1. Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu

What I love about KyotoAnimation are their stories are character driven and you see a lot of character development throughout their anime. You really start seeing the bond the characters form throughout the story. Animation aside, their level of attention to details is probably unmatched in the anime industry. Also, they know how to relate human emotions with small gestures, like a subtle movement or how their surroundings can be seen as taking form of the characters' state of mind. They have a unique way of directing which I really like.

Other franchises I really adored are K-On!, Hyouka, Air, Amagi Brilliant Park, Kanon, Kobayashi-san Chi, Suzumiya Haruhi and Chuunibyou. I also liked Tamako Market, Free!, Kyoukai no Kanata, Full Metal Panic and Lucky Star.

The only anime I didn't really enjoy from them is Musaigen no Phantom World which was supposed to be their adaptation of one of the darkest LNs ever yet they turned it into a fanservice anime.

Looking forward to Violet Evergarden, Liz to Aoi Tori, 2-nensei ni Natta, Take On Me and Tsurune. And whenever they plan to announce Robot Heart Update to be animated.

I saw every freaking KyoAni anime available for piracy (with 1 or 2 not included), and I must say the best thing they ever did to the world was Hyouka.

Well, it's not for everyone, but fuck them.

I haven't watched too many shows from koyani but koe no katachi is my current favourite.

It's too heartwarming and meaningful.

Hibike! Euphonium. It is the absolute best high school drama anime has yet offered me, and it's one of KyoAni's best-looking titles, to boot.

This glorious signature made by @Mayumi leads to my
superior reviews! Most Recent: Mirai of the Future!

I am the Arbiter of Absolute Truth, and here is my wisdom:

"Isekai peaked in the 90s. The genre has sucked ever since.
There is nothing wrong with liking shounen action anime.
There is no 'Golden Age.' There is always top-shelf anime.
You should be watching Ghost in the Shell SAC 2nd GIG."

To this day I'm disgusted with Clannad, and its message how it's okay to abuse someone just because that person acts silly, or stupid sometimes...
I'm talking about Yohei Sunohara, btw, and how everyone treated him as garbage...

I even removed all Clannad titles that I had on my list, because I just didn't want to remind myself how sad I was watching all that abuse, which was far more shocking than some more known sad scenes from series.

It made me avoid KyoAni, but I did decide to watch Nichijo, as well as Kobayashi's Maid Dragon, and both were pretty nice.
