  • No.

    Just no.

    3DCG just does not work well for anime. You lose everything that gives anime its style, regardless of how much budget you throw in. And if you half-ass it you get disappointing crap like the recent Berserk series.

    • The only CG anime series I can remember seeing was Zoids, and that was half-half, and to be fair without a bunch of time and budget if they didn’t CG the big robot battles I can imagine those fights would have been shit.

      • There’s cases where 3DCG effects are integrated with traditional 2D animation really well – ufotable are kind of the masters at it right now. Using it for mecha fights kind of makes sense.

    • GG Xrd has shown that it can work, you just have to put effort into it and not think that just because you’re using 3D it will animate itself.

      • That’s a game though, with a fixed perspective and everything. Expectations are different.
