So there are a lot of different character drawing styles in anime and manga. Which one do you guys like the most?

Like Akira Toriyama's DB style art that we know and love. Or are you a fan of something more cartoony like Dr. Slump the best?

There's the more modern, sleek, and streamlined style like in Bleach and Persona 4 more realistic like in Death Note, the sort of slightly more simple style seen in Soul Eater, Blue Excorcist, and Kekkaishi.

The more classic style seen in older anime like Yuyu Hakusho or there's the more vivid and erratic style of series like One Piece and Toriko.

There's also the more average style seen in most common anime or like in Naruto or one that I like to call "brolic and sexy" where all the guys are jacked and all the women are supermodels like in Needless.

Or do you just like Moe style?

Personally, I like the more modern style like in Bleach and classic YYH style the best.

I like a good sleek gothic tone like Death Note, I like how Attack on Titan is animated as well. The Style of Samurai Girls is also appealing to me. 
 
Manga wise I love the style of Berserk and Shigurui Death Frenzy.

I don't really have a favorite. If I had to say something, it would whatever style doesn't look like the typical generic art style you see in most anime. I think animation style/quality is significantly more important though. I'd rather something be well animated but generic looking rather than badly animated but a really awesome art style. If it all turns to crap once characters start moving, what's the point? It might as well as be manga if it's only good looking in still shots.

The art style I like is mostly funny facial reactions like one piece, bleach, trigun etc..

If we're talking about modernism, then it has to he bleach, death note, demonbane, naruto and some to name, I also like old school art style like, tenchi Muyu, genocyber, yu yu hakoshu, dragon ball and one piece. I usually watch all kinds of animes with different arts and all, and they all seem awesome lol
