Last fall, when the teaser for the full-3D animation Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 was released, there was a range of reactions. Some were totally put off, while others thought it looked ok. Now, thanks to the latest trailer, we can get a better look at the anime. And you know what? Maybe it looks ok!
Now, I don’t think it looks great. The original art from the first animated movies and TV shows were so damn good, you end up making the comparison.
This is a pretty good Batou—but it does have kiddy, 3D-digital cartoon look. So does a lot of the other moments in the trailer.
Though, the animation with the Tachikoma is buttery smooth.
And then there’s this sequence.
I’m much more optimistic about this show! Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 will begin streaming this April.
