    If Shintani is as good as animating as he is imitating Toriyama's style, I might mean towards him

    Maybe back in his heydays, but his artwork degraded horribly starting from the 2008 OVA were it just became shit and weren't even animation friendly in general

    In fact, even back in the days, when his work wasn't completely awful, animators had a fucking terrible time translating his designs into movement. His characters were segmented and blocky, making Super Saiyan look like bananas on people's heads

    Now awful artists, like Toyotaro, also feels the need to emulate his style, which is stupid. I really hope the new movie washes this ugly aesthetic from Dragon Ball forever

    Yeah, he definitely isn't what he used to be. I still give him some credit cause one day he might surprise us and put out stuff like that majin vegeta vs goku. One of the best scenes in all of DB.

    That Goku vs Majin Vegeta animation and choreography was sexy af but I haven’t seen that same caliber from him in DBS. The fight scene with Tien was pretty dope, though...

    I’ll have to give it to Takahashi as my favorite...

    fuck it, I like yamamuro but I also really liked the animators from the namek saga. Specially when Vegeta fights the Ginyu force.

    Small gap

    Shida

    Nobody else comes close. Not even Tate (though he is good). Gotta see the movie to judge Shintani
