Just one thing: character designs do matter when talking about animation, because the animation style of a given show usually is a natural extension of its character designs. Compare K-On!'s wobbly and loose designs, which in turn give birth to that type of animation and lend well to cartoony expressions, with Hyouka's more solid approach. In Hyouka you will never find any slapstick whatsoever, the closest it comes is when a character gets a color shade on their face for emphasis, but it never goes beyond that and the style is much more literal than K-On!'s; I'm sure that was the director's intent and goes well with the tone of the show, but it wouldn't be possible without well-made designs like Nishiya's.

As for average animation... well, just have this:
