Animation is one of the factors that affects my opinion of a show. I’m one of the people who judge an anime by its animation. Though I’ve seen a lot of anime with some amazing animation and effects, for this one I’ll have to go with Tokyo Ghoul.
My first choice would have been Attack On Titan, of course, but it had so many more features other than the outstanding animation that held my attention till the very end. So while it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen, I don’t owe it majorly to the animation. In the case of Tokyo Ghoul though, I think the animation had definitely been one of MAJOR factors why I liked it. And that is the reason I’m going with Tokyo Ghoul for today. I’ll let the gifs speak for me.
The animation of TG is superb. And it’s not just the animation. The effects and the soundtrack play just as important a role in its charm. The story is a little loose and slow, but the effects and animation make up for it. I don’t think I would have even finished the anime had it not been for the animation and the soundtrack. And the characters. The characters really grew on me and I found myself getting attached to them all.
The first season was pretty great. The second season not so much. The way the story was depicted, though, with the beautiful soundtrack and the eerie and dark vibes coming off from the animation and effects, made it enjoyable. So while the story wasn’t the very best, it’s implementation certainly covered up for it. All the scenes were portrayed in a brilliant manner and were able to capture my attention. Especially the ending scenes of the first and second season. They were both so beautiful and tragic.
This was the first time I liked an anime not because of the story, but because of the effects. And I was pleasantly surprised, as I’d always thought myself to be a story lover. Guess I’m a sucker for good animation too.
