Probably the best looking episode of the series that I've seen so far and the show has failed to match since is the episode where Rider first showed up in the forest. That episode actually looked it's age for a change and there was some actual detail to what was on the screen as opposed to the absolute bare minimum that could possibly be drawn to make the characters and settings distinguishable as what they are.
The animation does pick back up during episode 24, but yeah, otherwise the rest of the show was a sort of mix of decent and bad quality depending on what episode you were watching. One gets the feeling that DEEN got a budget for the anime and then had no real idea of how to control it so the episodes that mattered the most would look good.
