What's the best looking, most well illustrated anime/manga you've ever seen?
Something that pushes the boundary between anime and photo-realism?
It was rough at the beginning but got pretty great
I find his art in Innocent much, much nicer than KnH. KnH was a bit unclear and hard to read, snow is white so a lot of the time it almost looked 'overexposed' and cliffs just look rough and indistinct. Not really his fault, that's just how nature is, but Innocent plays more to his strength with the textures, pretty faces, symbolism etc.
>Something that pushes the boundary between anime and photo-realism?
Anime and manga isn't pushing the boundary of realism. If anything, it has always been a counterpoint to realism. And that's why it's good.
A couple but they're mostly garbage.
There was the horror one. And besides that one there's the french revolution one and the climber one. Both of which are already posted.
Maybe a couple more but they're so bad and I've seen them so far back I don't remember them anymore.
I think you're missing the point, manga in general isn't trying to copy life, just offer an artistic interpretation. While an illustrator attempting to make their art almost photo-realistic would be technically impressive, it's a lot of work that could be put towards making the manga more artistically unique.
>the horror one
Hideout? Kakizaki's got a really nice gritty/tense style, but he really needs to work on page composition/variety, it starts feeling pretty samey/dull after a while, especially in longer shit like Green Blood.
Because there are things you can portray in art which you can't with live action.
Also I like the anime style/proportions, but I'm looking for something with a higher level of detail than what you'd normally see. Like, with an actual nose, mouth and facial details. I'm not sure why this offends everyone so much.
