Well I guess budget is the biggest factor (i.e. how wacky episodes 5-6 look due to budget cuts, even when animated by Gainax itself)
But don't tell me you can sit through episode 11 without wondering "why does everything look vaguely like it came out of a Ghibli film?" (of course, because Ghibli animated it)
Obviously I don't think it's as if an entirely different take was done on it (they had to try to match what Gainax staffers were collaborating with them on) but you can kind of tell which episodes got subcontracted out (11, 13, 18)

> Question: Production I.G. animated the movies (with Gainax) and "Death"; this is why Director's Cut scenes look "different"
Uh, no. I am genuinely surprised that you don't understand the basics of anime production. Did you think Gainax was the only group that animated the TV series? Or that it was just Gainax and Production I.G. who animated the films? How does having Production I.G. involved change the animation style?
The difference is that the movies had a bigger budget.
> If not all Director's Cut scenes were from "Death" but a few were home-release exclusive...why is the animation still different? Production IG again, or Gainax with bigger budget?
Gainax with a bigger budget, and more importantly no deadline.
