Quotes from Gainax about their new(FLCL, GL, DB) style of animation:

>We don’t want to make anime, we want to make cartoons.
>Our shows feature designs simple, organic and cartoony because we realism as a creative limitation. With machines, for example, if you make it really hard and robotic, you can't have the freedom of movement of joints and whatnot. By making it sort of organic or fluid, you can do things that with a robot that you can't normally do.
