could you please tell me which program you have used
i usually use photoshop and the colours get all yucky and pixeled .-.

love this animation it looks very fluent and the glow in her eyes is just super cute

you can't actually QwQ, I would draw the frames layer by layer, save it as PSD and animate it there ;0;

but I've seen some animators use psd ;w;, it's not pixeled?, maybe the canvas size you work on is small? ;w;

hmm too small i doubt because i always use ridiculous big resolutions XD
i usually draw in sai and put it into an animation in photoshop too

look at her cloths they are so full of little tiny boxes i would call pixels but they are different to pixels

i think it might be luminosity and blur that i shouldn't use .-.

her blush is totally yucky while in the png image it looks super adorable ~ ( myc-chan.deviantart.com/art/M1… )

the luminosity effect looks totally weird .-.

Would you suggest that i only use flat colours  ( no blur and no luminosity) or am i doing something else wrong?

hmm... if I'm not mistaken adobe has color limitation for GIF, (I think 200-something), so if you blur 2 colors together you get more than just one color, that's why. and just like you said, just try using flat colors. (Light and blush effects are usually added later on, after the animation is done). but there's another thing though, the canvas you're using is pretty high ;w;, it's usually something around: 
  • 600 x 338
  • 640 x 360
  • 720 x 405
  • 800 x 450
  • 848 x 480
for household TV, that is why the square blocks are more obvious I guess ;w;, because mine has luminosity too, animated with the flat colors. QwQ

here's another thing you can try, don't render your frames as gif's, render them as sequence jpeg and then import them again to PS, then animate them again (the sequenced jpeg files ;w;)

ah am sorry for the long post, hope it helps!

hmm worth a shot i guess !
I think you might be right about all the things actually 

it's probably the combination of blur,luminosity ( which i admit i love to use XD ) and the big resolution that causes this weird effect 

i will definitely  try and i think the saving as gif and then rendering the animation could solve something already

also just curious about what or rather how one can add effects to an animation after it has already been saved to a gif animation?

I never really tried it my self but my seniors keep saying that they use After Effects for light and such.. I don't know about blush though xD
