Sorry, but I prefer the first one. Don't get me wrong, I like anime style, definitely. But the first just sort of appeals to me. Maybe because it feels more refreshing? Since the anime style has been done so many times.

But I also prefer the first because I don't like glasses on anime dudes, only IRL >///<

I'm so shallow.

Moved this thread to the art feedback section since it's primarily about art style.

I would personally like the more anime like art. I find the colouring more attractive (and the character itself is adorable:*)

Just like everyone has been saying: both styles are gorgeous :)

I would personally like the first style a little more than the second one, mainly because the first has a sense of being different. But that is just my preference :) (As is the character… >///< gah! Both guys are so handsome though!)

yes, and yes.
But also, personality is a factor in it too :]

Discounting art style, I like the first one best. His design is really detailed, and...
...I like his hair.

Neither are really my taste in guys but as far as the comparison goes, the first one. I can't really say what it is, I just think the design is nicer for him.

Both styles are okay but not something I would get excited and I usually get excited over otome games when I see the art and design. >///<
Maybe somewhere in between?

I'd date them both!!!!! The first character kind of reminds of Saeki Teru from Tokimeki Memorial Girls Side 2nd Kiss, desu XD I love that character......*slinks away into the darkness to play tokimeki again*

I prefer the first one because of the art style and look of the character, but I really like both.

Well, frankly, I believe both art styles are anime-ish, if you ask me. But, uh, I would go with choice 2 on this. I have to say, meganekun and green hair have always been a thing for me. Putting them together.... Fu fu fu. But, to make things more clear, I would rather date the guy with the most interesting of the two's personality. Regardless of what they may look like, it all boils down to the character's inner quality.

I thought both styles were similar to each other. The first is pushing more towards semi-realism but it's left rather loose in the brushwork and doesn't have the range of color that can be incorporated in that style. I like both styles, so either is fine with me.

Both would work fine in an otome VN. The first one looks more angsty and intense and serious; the second looks like he could have a lighter side. I like the armor style on the first, but I'm more likely to go for the personality the second seems to have (I can't stand too much angst!). :-D
