    Soul Eater's was very interesting, especially the way it wound through the city and like turned at all sorts of funny angles. The song was also great to boot.

    But I went with Macross Frontier in the end as I thought the animation was slicker and I liked especially the parts where the galaxy was reflected in Ranka's eyes and basically all the parts with the mecha It was animated in a way that brought out the whole idea of Macross very well - the singing + the mecha battles.

    All of the nominees are great. "Again" synchronizes with the animation amazingly, and "Resonance" does well in that regard also. By today's standards, "Inner Universe" is really good but not amazing; however, I remember when I first saw that opening and was stunned by it. For the time at which it first came out, I think "Inner Universe" is what makes it a top contender.

    At the end of the day, I am mostly torn between "Ebullient Future" and "Lion." I would vote for "Lion" for the reasons saladesu mentions above. "Ebullient Future" doesn't have impressive visual graphics, but the originality of the animation with all of the texts and things is so original and conceptually impressive.

    I hate having to choose in a category like this, but if I were to decide what is most important about the animation, I suppose it would be the visual graphics and "Lion" is most impressive at that particular aspect. Thus, I vote for "Lion."
