Whoa buddy, Nadesico has way better animation. BGC 2040 has nice artwork, it just doesn't move around that much. You do know what a pan cel is don't you?

AIC has also started doing alot of stupid digital panning effects like in "Sol Bianca the Screw jo--er Legacy."

Silent Mobius tv has similar problems but since it was a little truer to the feeling of it's source material, I like it a bit better.

I haven't seen that much 2040 yet though, so I won't go so far as to say it sucks or anything I just get tired of people going on about "the great animation quality" in recent AIC shows. (Especially in comparison to originals.

The darker story is interesting... I just hate the new Knight Sabers.

Not suprising with the tremendous talent of Mikimoto and Kawamoto in the OAVs.
