there is an unbelievable shift in quality of animation for episode 21 in Digimon Adventure and i really dont know why its so crisp and well-animated in comparison to the regularly-grainy lowbudget the rest of the show is cursed with
the top two are examples of the level of background & character detail that also resemble the color tone of 21, while the bottom 2 are shots from episode 21 itself. the difference is very palpable.
turns out, episode 21 & episode 21 alone was directed by the Mamoru Hosada, who did Girl Who Leapt Through Time/Digimon Adventure Movies/Summer Wars. that explains it because episode 21 is literally better written and animated than anything else in this series.
"hey i just want everyone watching the sub i made that i want to fuck the series of lines resembling humans thatve been designated as 12 year old girls"
*slamming my head against the hardest, most deadly object*
oh my christ this animation is so bad it doesnt even make physical sense anymore
the fandoms my stuff gets the most circulation is are: daily lives of high school boys, hokuto no ken, & sailor moon. no one ever reblogs my digimon stuff, because i guess everyone else has enough common sense to not watch literal trash for the sake of watching it (but then again Netflix has Pokemon everyones watching and we all know Pokemon anime fucking sucks)
