Anime has been on the high-rise these past couple of years, hasn’t it? We all love a good anime, the plot, the vivid characters, and sometimes the edgy fan-service. We all get that feeling at moments, that “this anime is good but it could’ve been a bit better”.
If we ponder on that thought for a while one thing that we’d love to see amped up is the animation. That’s true right? Attack on Titan wouldn’t have been that great without the amazing feats Studio Wit did with the first season. Nobody would’ve cried in Violet Evergarden if we couldn’t see her tears!
So if you’re in search of an anime that gives an oomph, then you’re in luck. Look no further as we’ve compiled a list of top 10 anime that’ll capture your gaze with their stunning visuals.

So begins the tale of how one particular firefighter, Galo, becomes a hero.
Promare’s aesthetically pleasing animation was the reason it was noticed in the first place. The colour palate looks amazing, and the artwork is like a mixture of Kill La Kill meets Mob Psycho 100.
If you’re looking for a film with flashy fire fights, Promare is the way to go.

A humanoid weapon, Violet Evergarden, learns emotions when she meets Gilbert. Afterwards she works as an Auto Memory Doll in a local hospital, transcribing thoughts of people on paper.
Yes, Violet Evergarden easily ranks on this list. The animation is captivating, but that’s only something you can tell if you’ve watched the series.
Give Violet Evergarden a look over because I’m pretty sure there isn’t an anime that can surpass it in terms of visuals.

I specifically chose Mob Psycho 100 as a member of this list due to its interesting animation. It definitely is like no other anime, with characters drawn in very wondrous ways.
