This /thread, because all the characters are memorable looking compared to everything else.
Maybe add in NGNL too since its artstyle gives it an edge.

NGNL has shit character design. Art direction =! character design.

I agree

Jojos, none of these other plebs are featured in Gucci stores, or Fashion Magazines.
>>
>>109416485
Gucci is for basic bitches.
>>
>>109416485
The anime has gaudy colors.
>>
>>109418907
They're alright. I oly wish we had blue hair jotaro and blue/red SP, but besides that, everything's been pretty gud.
>>

B-but what about Gin no Saji?

As for your question: Ping Pong for obvious reasons, along with Bokura wa Minna Kawaiisou which had extremely good dynamic between the characters. Isshuukan friends had pretty good but they basically never evolved.

Pic unrelated.

>>109419330
I don't think you know what Character Designs means.
>>
>>109419409
Please enlighten my ignorant existence.
>>
>>109414259

I'll have to reluctantly agree.

They're a bit overdesigned, but they just look so good.
>>
>>109419479
It seems like you're talking about the way characters interact with each other and their relationships, which is not character design at all.
>>
Akuma no Riddle
>>
>>109413454
Doesn't matter. Summer and Fall will destroy everything and /a/ will be one tep closer to death.
>>
>>109414576
Is it bad if her sword in this pic reminds me of a dildo?
>>
>>109419664
How they interact and their relationships are merely consequences of their designs. Inversely, it is also mostly how we extrapolate actual character traits, as long as they are consistent in how they act according to different scenarios. Unless of course we are solely talking about looks, which would just be silly.

I'm genuinely interested in this topic so please respond. I also have to note that it's currently 5 am so I might just be tired.
>>
>>109414156
I hate that the correct answer took 6 posts, and the majority of /a/ doesn't even agree with it.

It doesn't bother me that people have bad taste. I know that. I expect that. What bothers me is that good taste is right in front of them, but they just don't learn. I think they actively refuse to learn.
>>
>>109419886
Character design is solely about their looks.
>>
>>109419886
We're not talking about their personality and interactions, when people say character design they mean the aesthetics, why do you think that's what everybody else has been talking about?
>>
>>109419886
He meant character design in the sense of how they look, their color schemes, the accessories, personality typing, what have you. Your talking about writing. We're talking about how cute the girls looked.
>>
>>109419905
>>109419988
>>109419992
I do realize now what a douche I've been, well in that case. Why has no one said Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? Cutest girls in a long long time.
>>
>>109419886
>How they interact and their relationships are merely consequences of their designs.
Pretty sure believing this is a form of autism.

How do you survive in the world? Are your interactions with people consequences of your fashion?
>>
>>109420085
>Color by numbers horseshit
Oh God, you're not good at this.

>>109413454
Considering I really don't care much for the direction modern character design has taken, I'm going to say Matsutaro and Ping Pong. Matsutaro's characters have a nice, classic look, while Ping Pong's character designs are unique and memorable.

Most other series just look generic in comparison.
>>
>>109420085
They are cute and pretty but Mahou Shoujo Taisen is has more interesting designs
>>
>>109420216
Have you looked into Soredemo Sekai was Utsutsu-shimasu?
>>
>>109420653
Yeah, not my thing, including the character designs.
>>
>>109420312
Personally, I don't like these. There's too much going on and I get some CLAMP/ZUN vibes where the designer just wanted to slap on all kinds of things on characters without thinking does this really suit this character's personality and style. They look fancy but they don't make the characters stand out from each other at all and they are not memorable.

It's not exactly 2014 show but I really like Yowamushi Pedal designs. Simple and they all look unique and fit their personalities.
>>
>>109414086
>>109414576
>>109420312
Yes. Naruko is by far my favorite.

>>109421162
Well, the designs were chosen through a Pixiv contest. Each of the girls are supposed to represent the prefecture that they belong to.

Those both looks fucking horrible. I hope you know that.

Fate/Stay Night's designs look damned great.

>>109413454
Going by not the costumes, but how neat the artstyle is, I'd pick Mikakunin
