Day 16 — Anime with Best Animation
I am very picky when it comes to art in anime, or rather, I used to be. However, I am certainly not an expert when it comes to animation. Still, do I know when there is something ‘off’ about animation? Of course but I am certainly no expert.
When I am asked what anime has the best animation, I have to say that Fate/Zero is one of the first things that comes to mind. (The second being Terror in Resonance.) I enjoyed UFO Table’s work on the Fate/Zero series.
Fate/Zero has smooth animation, crisp colors, and stunning art. Fate/Zero is absolutely stunning in comparison to Fate/Stay Night by Studio Deen. Fate/Zero was enjoyable not just because of the art but also because it is a masterpiece.
The action scenes are easy to follow and well-developed. The blood is realistically colored and moves fluidly. The anatomy moves in a fairly realistic way and the fights leave you on the edge of your seat. There is a good deal of attention to even small details, as seen in the command seals in the trailer below.
I can’t write you a book on why I enjoy Fate/Zero’s animation but I can tell you that it is one of my favorite action anime of all time. I think it is stunning and beautiful.
