best technical animations?

a lot of animes i see are low budget with poor production values. the action looks like a flipbook and there's a lot of rehashing of frames and minimal actions (just mouths moving and such).

i'm looking for some examples of high production value animes that are interesting to watch from a technical standpoint

thanks!

You're an animator as well I suppose?

Eureka 7 from Bones had really good timing, anticipation and one of the few anime that really makes use of slow in and slow out. The mecha flies on surfboards and they really animated the surfing action beautifully.

Gainax is the best animation studio technically in my opinion, they are they only studio that still uses exaggeration and squash and stretch extensively. Most of their work are great but FLCL, Top wo Nerae! 1 and 2 and Tengen Toppa Guren Lagann are the most impressive.

Gainax characters actually have jaws that move, and strong gestures, they are the closest of all anime to western animation. They also have good understanding of pace and camera angles.

Bones animations are usually very smooth, while Gainax is extremely dynamic. They have really good animators who make use of the low fps in anime. I'd say Bones really fill in their in betweens really well while Gainax have very well drawn key frames.

no, just a hobbyist's interest :P

thanks for the suggestions! i've seen most of those before and love gainax, but had hoped there would be some newer titles/progress from what has already been from 10 years ago!

For movies:

Redline : the whole point of the movie is animation.


Makoto Shinkai goes for an ultra realist style, 5cm/second is a good place to start

Hosada's movies are are more simplistic looking but they're still quite intereresting for someone interested in animation,The girl who leapt through time is a good place to start

While Makoto Shinkai's works look spectacular, he displays very little in animation technique.

If we're adding movies, definitely Ghibli works, since they're the biggest budget 2D animations in Japan. They are the closest to Disney's level of animation, but still quite a stretch.

You should also try Masaaki Yuasa's works. It feature a extremely artistic style and great variation of animation styles.

Have you seen the animations made by Miyazaki like Princess Mononoke.. They're great examples of hand drawn animation. I idolize the guy for his contributions to Japanese animation. They're all movies thought.

True,I hesitated but then put it in because while the thread title says "animation" the post itself says "high production value animes" and the very detailed backround art in Shinkai films qualify as high production values to me.

This subject comes up from time to time in the Suggestions thread. Here are some other threads about animation quality:

http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=61914
http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=54348
http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=54050

My list from the earlier thread hasn't changed all that much. I'd add:
Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Ikoku Meiro no Croisee
Hyouge Mono
for the quality of their artwork and House of Five Leaves, primarily for its character designs.

I especially like works from Production I.G, Studio Madhouse, Brains-Base, and sometimes Studio SHAFT. Neither Madhouse nor Brains-Base tend to the flashy, but their shows exude quality and attention to detail. Monster, Claymore and Mouryou no Hako are good examples of Madhouse works; for Brains-Base, I'd recommend Baccano!, Kurenai and Natsume Yuujinchou.

The best shows from Production I.G have a "sheen" to them that sets them apart from the crowd. You'll see this in shows like Seirei no Moribito, Eden of the East, Real Drive, and Ghost Hound.

Shinbo's work at SHAFT often has a surreal quality to it. It's most pronounced in Madoka but appears as well in shows as different from Madoka as Hidamari Sketch and Bakemonogatari. Though I'm hardly an expert on things artistic, I believe Shinbo's work is heavily influenced by the "superflat" movement.

Studio 4C produces some lovely shows like Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu and various experimental works like these.

For anything recent? Kyoso Giga. Vibrant visuals and dynamic animation with lots of interesting stylized direction. Made me quite a fan of Rie Matsumoto and Yuki Hayashi, director and animation director respectively.

Kizuna Ichigeki is another. It's got the sketchy style reminiscent of Windy Tales, Shoka, and Kemonozume (which are great as well in a technical point of view).

You should also watch Shin Oonuma's works, perhaps ? Lot of artistic visual/effects.
