>>12220823>Have to say I still do prefer Mikimoto's designs, but they're always cannibalised in the end.
This. Mikimoto's art is incredible, but if you don't have at least an OVA level budget, don't even bother with him because his stuff looks like shit with anything less.
Frontier's designs aren't as good overall, but they work better for the show than Mikimoto's would.>>12220902
I honestly don't think that Frontier's designs are generic at all. They aren't the best character designs ever, but they are very distinct and don't look much like anything else I've seen.
