I switched to reading manga a long time ago. I seldom watch an anime and if I do it's almost always an older series.

I agree with you on this OP! Literally every single show these past few years have been horrendous CGIsh*t! Woe is me! When shall we ever return to the blessed age of anime, aka the 90s, with all those great, mature animes like Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Dragon Ball Z, Darker than Black and Attack on Titan? Upvote if you want real anime to come back, and not this bug-eyed CGI moey trash!

Mecha is taking it the worst. No more beautiful and personality filled cells, just CG models that stick out horribly. No weight, no momentum, no character. Knights of Sidonia turned out alright, though.

It IS bad. Rakuen looked good only because it had a movie budget and schedule. TV series always suffer greatly and up being eye cancer.

The only one that has looked somewhat decent is Concerto, and that's because it cut away from all the action scenes and covered up some of the ugliness with clever use of the artstyle.

He's right though. The animations, frame rate, and hair all look off, even if the characters and environment look good, it doesn't matter if everything looks jerky and unnatural. I mean compare EfH to any 3DCG film made by disney, or hell a crappy 3DCG cartoon made by CN or Nick, and you'll see the difference in how it's filmed and animated.

>>
>>119023225
You're not really saying anything else that I already said. You're used to certain style and cannot get over style that looks different.

It's animators job to make scene look watchable and 3DCG is one style to achieve that. Nobody sane would expect it's going to replace all other animation style altogether, especially when it's not even cheaper.

One problem of animation is that its quality heavily depends on human brain. If animator made this scene with more keyframes, it would most likely exaggerate incorrect proportions even more and it would look awful too.

It also took me a second to realize you weren't just spouting gibberish at me. Can you think of a better example for unstable anatomy than someone who goes from being like 8 feet tall to being like 30 feet tall, and whose face changes size every time you see him?

It's not a claim that needs an evidence. It's a statement that animator animates and is expected to work well within the budget he was given. There's also nothing strange about saying that different animation styles exists. Puppet play is animations style too, for example. What do you need a proof of?

I honestly hope you are baiting

I love this medium so much but it gets abused and twisted into something it's not meant to be. I just hope a young jap out there has the skill and passion to change something.

The second half of the sentence.
>3DCG is one style to achieve that.
Did you really think the first part needed proving? Are you just at the part of the argument where you're falling apart so you intentionally try to make the other look stupid?

I wish I was kidding.

Stop posting that horrible bitch

>>119023890
Holy shit, this looks worse than the CG we watched as kids. I swear Reboot never looked this bad. Is it just easier to shit out cartoons when you make them look like this?
>>
>>119023853
How is not 3DCG not an animation style? Or even a one that cannot look good?

What's your argument? So far all I see is "I don't like it" and that doesn't allow much argument.

>If the western industry is anything to go by

If it were, it would've happened already. Japan had full CG flicks like Appleseed already ten years ago, and they weren't followed by a complete 3D boom like in the west. The use of computer-generated animation has steadily developed alongside 2D animation, never completely replacing it.

In west we have essentially only one animation giant that dictates what everyone does: Disney. They saw that CGI was a way to make more profit, gave up on hand-drawn animation, and others had no choice but to follow suit. In Japan, the situation is completely different.

Tie the two ideas together, man. The "that" in that sentence is making a show watchable. All the 3DCG so far looks terrible, for reasons stated numerous times in this thread beyond "I don't like it."

Fuck off with your creepy silky smooth puppet people.

Thats just like your opinion man.

The only real problem with CG is when its done cheaply, and when they start using it in a non CG anime
>>
>>119023961
You make a massive net gain in manhours with CG. Nice models take time to make, but you do it once for each object and you're done, plus it will always be on-model. This does of course have drawbacks when it comes to variety, as the recycling of assets is always encouraged. The workflow is quite similar to games in that regard, if you're familiar with the production process.
>>
>>119023963
Well for one, it's not a style it's a medium, and his issue was the fact that you implied that an animator can make something look good just by rendering it in 3D.
>>
>>119024092
But 3D animators are much more expensive than cheap korean inbetweeners.

>>119020145
The day anime fully becomes CGI is the day when I can finally start to finish my backlog because nothing good will ever come out again.

People look forward to One Piece or Berserk finishing within their lifetime. In the same way, I look forward to CGI.

Cartoon Network still airs largely 2D shows.
The argument here is that 3D will eventually supersede 2D because, for the majority of shows which are just cheap advertisements for manga/LN/toys, it's faster and more cost effective. The proliferation of 3D visual effects in anime is just the first step of the takeover.
>>
>>119024162
That is true, but there are still net gains even if individual components of it cost more.

Then there will eventually be some software that can turn 3D into fine 2D animation so all people who draw for 2D animation will lose their jobs.
