It won't be as great as Nehza conquers the Dragon King.

There is so fucking much going on in that trailer. It's like it goes so far up its own ass with the esoterica and over the top visuals that it circles back around to being completely generic and uninteresting.
Like the Hobbit movies.
I haven't the faintest fucking clue what that movie is supposed to be about other than high budget flashy action sequences of big armies of people mashing into each other.
You know, like the hobbit movies.
But he's right. I love animation and this trailer is impressive but I have no context to care about anything that's going on.

I feel like I'm making a pretty genuine criticism of the animation that we could be discussing as though this was a board for doing just that.
They don't seem to have any idea what NOT to animate. Like every thread of clothing on every character in every scene needs to be moving constantly even if there's no reason it should be.
It completely breaks down at the end when they are faced with actually animating two people interacting on screen. None of them move like human beings governed by physics.
It's the same with so many other cartoons from regions with no old established animation industry. Like they don't have anyone who's done enough animation to handle the art direction in a consistent way plus the fact that they feel like they have something to prove. So it just ends up being them trying to outdo the rest of the world on every front and looking like a confused mish-mash of everything they could think of.
Every single North Korean cartoon is the same way.
I hope this does well so china can final have something modern to show in animation. Who knew a country of a billion people would have so little impact in animation compared to it's neighbors.
