The Subtle Ways Anime Changes

The Subtle Ways Anime Changes

We notice the big changes. When characters look quite different or the animation isn't up to snuff. What about the more subtle ones? We notice those less, but they offer an interesting peek at how animators bring their own style to a work.

Over on 2ch, a recent thread featured a series of comparison images showing how characters look in episodes helmed by different directors or done by different animators.

It's obvious that different people making different episodes would produce a varied result, even if they were adhering to the house style, so to speak.

Often, the differences are small, but not always. In some, it might be hard to tell how they're different. But if you're playing close attention, they can show how individualistic anime can be. Or, heck, even if you're not!

In the images below, on the sides are staff names, while at the top, you can see the character's name. Note: In some images, these are switched. Click the images to enlarge.
