** South Italy was originally somewhat taller than his younger brother as both a child and adult, but wound up shrinking to become the same height.

** South Italy was originally somewhat taller than his younger brother as both a child and adult, but wound up shrinking to become the same height. And then in ''World☆Stars,'' he's actually ''shorter'' than North Italy.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' is rather interesting, as the anime has actually followed the art evolution of the manga very closely. Given that Gosho Aoyama's art style has evolved considerably in the past 22 years, it makes for a very jarring experience to go back and read the first issues or watch the first episodes.\\
\\
Aoyama's style change is even more evident in his shorter manga, ''Manga/MagicKaito''. Considering that he only makes a chapter every few years, the series shows significant style changes in each volume (especially the 4th one, released 13 years after the 3rd).

* ''Manga/OnePiece'''s distinct style has changed quite a bit over its decade-long run. In the beginning it used many thick lines, giving the art a round, bouncy, cartoonish look. The lines eventually became thinner and crosshatching and line shading is used extensively. The characters' features have become more loose to the point where Zoro, for example, can look buffoonish one frame and a hard-boiled BadAss the next. This carries over to many a character.

* The ''Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro'' characters have changed more than a little over the [[LongRunner over 50 years]] it's been running. Compare [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101203064828/gegegenokitaro/images/c/cf/NekoMusume.jpg Neko Musume]] over the years. In contrast, [[http://www.animenation.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/kitaro_all-450x182.jpg Kitaro]] hasn't changed much in design but you can see the art style differences.

Added DiffLines:

* Although Shimotsuki's early art for ''Manga/Brave10'' was actually pretty good as far as dynamism and detail, it was far more chaotic, more prone to being off-model and the character designs saw many adjustments as the series progressed. By the sequel, the art is clear, gorgeous and consistent.

* The frogs in ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' became less tubbier as the manga progressed. Sgt. Keroro and Pvt. Tamama look like they ate too many sweets in the past. Meanwhile in the anime the way the frogs have been drawn has changed slightly too.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/YuuWatase had a case of OnlySixFaces for a long time in her various series. However, her art evolved a lot during ''Manga/AyashiNoCeres'', giving characters more distinct faces and overall being a bit rounder. It's especially noticeable once she proceeded to work on ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'' and drew new art for the original ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' characters. Compare [[http://s1.zerochan.net/Fushigi.Yuugi.600.51022.jpg an older image]] to this [[http://static.zerochan.net/Watase.Yuu.full.682252.jpg newer image of Miaka and Yui]]. Even her way of coloring evolved.

* Natsuki Takaya's artstyle has changed rather drastically from being reminiscent [[BishieSparkle to that of old-school shojo]] with character designs being rather lanky, to a more consistent, smooth, and organic style she draws with now. This change can be easily seen by comparing the much earlier chapters of her successful ''FruitsBasket'' to the more later ones. The characters were drawn [[http://www.tenmanga.com/chapter/FruitsBasket1/146161-2.html thin and with sharply-defined, pointy features]]. Later on, they became [[http://www.tenmanga.com/chapter/FruitsBasket123/146283/ smoother]] and [[http://www.tenmanga.com/chapter/FruitsBasket100/146260/ wider]].

* Since season 1 of the anime version of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' came out in 1995 and the most recent (''Evolution-R'') in 2009, obviously this would happen, but even watching the season 3 (''TRY''), which came out in 1997, then going back and watching some of the early episodes can be rather jarring. Lina's design in particular has changed quite bit? Most noticeably, her hair started out as reddish-brown and over time changed to [[RedHeadedHero bright red]]. Interestingly, though in all continuities there is a running gag about Lina having a flat chest, it started out rather large in the anime but actually see to have become smaller over time (though it [[TheArtifact still isn't as small as it's made out to be]]).
