However, the anime is quite revolutionary in its approach.
The animation is praised by many viewers for its visual accuracy.
The animations are spot on and they show great attention to detail.
The breathing of characters in between poses, flinching during held poses, accurate choreography, and characters moving a little out of sync are visualized well.
