Right?  Just so sweet and cute.  I wonder why these ponies aren't the "retro look" that is what I remember ponies looking like.

The "retro ponies" they are using now seem pretty modern.  I don't hate them and they are reminiscent of the retro ponies-  but why come up with a new art style to define a style that already exists and is beloved?  That part I don't get.

Appeal maybe? I love the small eyes the old art has, it looks more like a real pony, but nowadays that might not be popular. Everything now has huge sparkly eyes.

I get the big anime eye thing but I wish it was a little more subdued. When ponies start looking like their faces are 80% eye it's just creepy.

I was watching an episode of The Lionguard with my nephew because his parents know I enjoy cartoons and will sit with him no problem... and there was a dolphin with huge forward facing manga eyes, it looked so out of place and freaky I was hit by Uncanny Valley and barely couldn't continue watching.

Eww.

Why is there an anime eyed dolphin in the African Savannah Disney?

It's an indo-pacific pink dolphin so it makes sense for it to be in African waters but the eyes are just... yikes.
Dolphins are a common enough sight for humans to have a creeped out reaction to this thing. A lot of animals on this show have huge eyes even for Disney standards. I think they even sized up old Simba's eyes, lol!

When human anime have eyes that take up so much of their face- it's just as weird.  I love this anime but come on-  this is a human ? No way.

That's what annoys me in modern animation in general, the prevalence of those characters that have long, gangly limbs, a ridiculously small torso, disproportionately large head and eyes that take up majority of their face and are more detailed than the rest of the body put together. I know that this tactic somehow hacks our brains into associating them with cuteness or something, but to me it just screams lazy. I still think that the ponies from "Rescue at Midnight Castle" were way cutier with their horselike proportions than the new ponies who have those white spots on their eyes bigger than their muzzles.

I don't mind it in anime, within reason. I hate cutesy anime stuff, but stuff like Touru in that image I kind of just accept as within the normal bounds of anime. Even if it's not anatomical. ;)

THe problem is now everything tries to mimic that style and its too much. It doesn't need to be like that.

(Though Furuba was always like that with really big eyes even before everyone got to being as big-eye as they tend to be now. Trend setter..?)

The real problem I have with giant eyes is I don't see how they can blink in time to stop bugs and dust from getting in.  It makes my eyes itch when I see them.
