You can objectively look at artwork, that Musashi Gundoh show is a great example.
- Look at her left arm.:
- Pistol on Sword combat.:
- Watch the bullets vanish in his hands, then suddenly appear in the gun.:
- Walk Cycle.:
In some cuts characters just lack pupils because they forgot to draw them, sometimes objects don't reach the bottom of the screen because in editing they didn't notice they didn't fully draw it. There can be errors, graphical fidelity is similar to glitches. You can see them and just recognize "This is wrong." Sound quality again, I don't pay much attention to the music but if something is just way too loud for some reason, if I can pick up a sound that clearly isn't intended like someone in the studio saying something during recording that no one else noticed because it was too quiet, it is bothersome.
And that is the issue I was mentioning, being everywhere. I have difficulty finding the less generic ones I might enjoy, when I try to talk to people about anime to see if there is anything I might enjoy they almost always suggest the really typical stuff to me. I don't get something with animation like Reign the Conqueror which is incredibly iconic and easy to recognize. Instead I get suggested Dog Days, something that might be the most generic anime to ever exist. If you haven't watched it, give it a chance and watch the first episode. See if you can get through it's most bland blandness, it's maddening. In regards to conveying emotions, feelings, ideas, I have no frame of reference, how can I tell that these characters are acting like nothing is going on in a situation? Their face doesn't convey it, but there is a giant teardrop next to their head. Does that mean in anime world that they are ready to cry? Why in this realistic depiction show with people looking like real humans, did all her features go away becoming super simple as her head grew large and she yelled at people? This sort of stuff can really turn people away, because we just end up with no clue what the hell is going on. Perhaps it is like in a Western cartoon when someone is looking at someone attractive and they howl like a wolf while their eyes grow bigger, in anime it is often nose bleeding which I didn't understand even remotely until I actually looked it up and finally got what the hell was happening. I've noticed among a few people from other countries I've talked to, when translated they can get a show like Venture Bros a bit more in ways. When someone is disgusted they real back and twist their nose, or if someone is trying to be seductive they do so like a real human being. A lot of cultural references just don't work cross culture, but a lot of human body language is pretty universal. Hand gestures are not, but facial gestures are. And in anime faces often aren't that detailed and they forgo facial gestures in detail for cultural signals.
Comics are generic looking as hell, superhero drawings and animations I just generally can't get into because they're just so bland and don't stick out to me. Sometimes they do go with their own styles, other times everything looks nearly identical and that makes it difficult for me to pay any attention. How many superheroes are men in their thirties or so with similar sized chins, haircuts, dark eyes, teeth, bothers the hell out of me. Comics sort of realize this in a way though since normally they are wearing their costumes so you don't see their faces as much as you see their masks.
Ghost in the Shell was a good example I used earlier, I said that is a good show to use to get people that aren't into anime to possibly bridge the gap. I enjoy the hell out of that show.
And the reason that people enjoy seeing other people is often the idea of the situations being believable. Twelve Angry men is a great example, it is something that could happen. Likely it wouldn't, but it could. It is about people trying to decide whether someone is really guilty, with people bringing their bias from multiple backgrounds, and how they can be convinced a minority might not have committed a murder. It is a commentary on society and quite engaging to hear their reasoning, their investigative work(Which jurors aren't supposed to do and is the silly part). Citizen Kane is interesting because it is a very possible situation in which a man just destroys himself with the entire story being a character piece, people can enjoy things based off of the interest of concepts rather than just seeing fantastic situations. To some people that takes them out of it.
I should also mention, Ghost in the Shell isn't fantasy, it is pure Cyberpunk Science Fiction, one of the purest examples in anime.
EDIT: Reworking this, just realized I accidentally deleted key parts to sentences.
EDIT 2: Should be fixed. Also enjoy the terrible anime that is Musashi Gundoh.
