This is stunning. There is a softness to your picture that just makes me smile. And the way the different kinds of warm and cool light go together with the blueish shadows creates a unique feeling. Well done!
Hm, actually, I really enjoy the anime's animations. There're beautiful movements and angles. The manga has a special atmosphere, too but I'm not a big fan of lack of backgrounds (kind of a shoujo thing) and I just think the animators are doing a better job visually... So for me personally, the anime wins. ^^
Yeah, I agree, it looks like a sketchbook. Which is nice sometimes. But the manga looks more refined, with more backgrounds and overall very beautiful. Oh, hm, I usually take it from the group that is subbing it. I think the newest season is subbed by Commie or HorribleSubs... Uhm... google might help ^^"
