What's the best looking, most well illustrated anime/manga you've ever seen?

Something that pushes the boundary between anime and photo-realism?

nope.

Now photo-realism can certainly be the criteria for "best looking" for something else. But not animu.

There is no relation between those two things at all.

Just fucking take photos if that's seriously all you care about.

Are there any realistic looking photo realistic looking mangas?

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.
>>
>>151729496
Sure, but is there any that does?
>>
>>151729564
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.
>>
>>151726092
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.

Not realistic.

No one cares, OP's a faggot.

So is it a question of:
Who draws best western style faces?
or
Who is best at using photographs as backrounds?
or
Who inserts most random pretty textures in clothing?

If you like photo-realism so much, then just watch live action or something.

>>151724888
berserk? gantz? that one devil blues manga?

>>151731483

Perfect example of how photorealism =/= quality.

Yeah I think that's the one.

>>151724967
Also, the last arc of Slam Dunk looked pretty close to what Vagabond became.
>>
>>151732556
I disagree, I find Vagabond's art after it abandoned the weekly schedule much better than any period of Slam Dunk or Real.
>>
I don't equate photorealism with quality illustration. If a drawing comes too close to reality, it becomes uncanny and unappealing, at least in my opinion.

Also, FUCKING CAPTCHA
>>
>>151724888
Vagabond
Gantz(sometimes)
One Punch Man when Murata actually tries to draw a realistic figure. So by extension parts of Eyeshield 21 as well

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.

Wait, so this was supposed to be a rec thread? And you're wondering why that offends people? Jesus Christ, fuck off, newfag.

I fucking hate when manga and Anime tries really hard to look relativistic. It ends up just looking bizarre and creepy like OP's pic.

This is effectively what you're saying.

why do mods leave threads like this untouched?
