General | Latest Info

It wouldn't be farfetched to say that the presence of 3D anime within the industry is growing. As technologies become more accessible and fans become more accepting, we re seeing more producers open up to the possibility of creating 3D works for the anime market. Now even studios like Polygon Pictures, who have become renowned for their work on US animated shows, have produced over a dozen projects for anime audiences and teams primarily known for making video game cutscenes have brazenly stepped into TV animation. It's unlikely that 3D anime will ever replace or take over traditionally 2D medium, but it's still worth highlighting these new accomplishments. Once upon time, Square striven for photorealism and it didn't go so well. But today, company's cinematic leads have readjusted their priorities and instead pursue a balance between reality and fantasy. This means that whilst characters look like they could exist in real life, they are regarded less as a constraint and more as a platform to leap off into portrayals of detailed and expressive fantasy. Kingsglaive is the latest of these achievements and is able to introduce the world of Final Fantasy XV with a level of detail and polish that the game's staff only wish they could achieve in real - time. Since Knights of Sidonia, Polygon Pictures attempts to portray the anime style in 3D has been work - in - progress with each following project improving on character expression, shading, and action. This was brought to head with 2017's Blame!, Ambitious adaptation of Tsutomu Nihei's unique vision of metal future. The animation team were able to portray signature elements like the eerie loneliness of the city and Killy's devastating Beam Emitter thanks to deep understanding of Nihei's work. One of the greatest challenges in 3D is creating characters with the same type of expressions that you d expect in the very best of 2D anime. That say, 25 Pretty Cure film goes above and beyond to creating the sort of character animation that could only be accomplished with detail that comes with CG. Director Hiroshi Miyamoto started out his career at Square Enix wanting to create realistic monster animation, but after some time in the Kingdom Hearts series, set his heart towards anime - style 3D and there's whole lot of Precure fans are grateful that he do. Whilst Orange has created some of the most exhilarating 3D mecha battles within the industry in series such as Majestic Prince and Akito exile, they always strive to create full - 3D series on their own terms. This is why, after over a decade in business, Orange refers to Land of Lustrous as their first show. Couple with a melancholic story of identity and change, Orange was able to capture the most important elements of original manga, including even developing a unique refractive index for each of the characters ' gem - hair.

8. Kemono Friends

Japari Park is a gigantic zoo with various biomes or areas ranging from savanna to frozen tundra. The park hosts a huge variety of animals for visitors to see. Or it used to be. Japari Park has been abandoned due to a mysterious particle called Sandstar emerging from the volcano. Animals touching these particles cause them to transform into human - shape animals girls known as friends. Kemono Friends has one of the worst CGI in any 3D anime, so why is it on the list? Truth be tell, Kemono Friends was set to fail from the start because the director and publisher got into argument over some legal and production issues. Kadokawa gives the director an abysmal budget, crew of no more than 9 people with a 500 - day deadlineThey. Want Tatsuki to fail. Like, their budget wasnt enough to animate rotation of tires! However, due to the directors ' determination and passion for anime, he made use of a meager budget to create Kemono Friends and air it in Japan and the result was nothing short of amazing. Despite its unpolished 3D graphics, Kemono Friends has become an unexpected hit among anime fans with its charming story and lovable characters beaming with personality. Fans didnt care about graphics at all and, in fact, there was a massive backlash from fans after they found out season 2 would not be directed by Tatsuki. Season 2 was cancelled and if it does come around, it will not have the same personality as director Tatsukis passionate hands. Indeed, for as long as anime has heart, it doesnt matter how CGI look. And yes, you should go and watch Kemono Friends!

5. Bubuki Buranki (BBK/BRNK)

Kazuki Azuma is a young man searching for answers about his mother and Buranki Oubu. After returning to Japan after 10 years, he meets companions who wield weapons with minds of their own, called Bubuki. What is Bubuki and why is Azuma looking for Buranki Oubu and revive it? What truly happened 10 years ago? Call it capitalism, but money, especially a generous amount of money, is all it takes to craft good - looking 3D anime. Animation budget varies on the popularity of anime series or manga series they are based on, so it is surprising Bubuki Buranki, series with no real pedigree, receives enough budget to make CGI not look like crap. Cgi isnt perfect though, but it is good enough for characters to look like 2D anime. You can criticize Bubuki Buranki for its story and characters, but it is hard to ignore CGI looks very good.

4. Tiger & Bunny

Due to unknown mutation, certain people now possess supernatural abilities like super strength, speed, senses, telekinesis, etc. Upon discovery of this mutation, scientists call these unusual group of people as NEXT, and with their newfound powers, NEXT either use their power for evil, or use their power to stop evil from taking root in society and save people from harm. In the city of Stern Bild, organization and popular TV show Hero TV uses NEXT as Heroes to fight crime and bring justice to the world, and at the same time, profit from their good deeds by letting big companies sponsor Heroes as part of their brands. Tiger & Bunny is dominantly 2D and 3D parts are when Heroes don their flashy armor and costume riddle with sponsor logos. Visually, aesthetics are unique, but CGI was do well enough for 3D models to interact with 2D models, especially when Heroes take off their masks to show off their hand - drawn face. One could say this sort of seamless 2D and 3D interaction is a small step for anime going 3D. Also, Tiger & Bunny is a nice transitionary anime for those brave enough to leave the 2D realm and into wild unknowns called 3D realm.

2. God Eater

God Eater Resurrection begins by getting you hype. When you launch the game, anime opening video flashes from moment to moment, showcasing characters and world of God Eater. God Eater Resurrection, marries its unique style with gameplay that makes you feel like youre are playing anime. Gameplay is king, and God Eater Resurrection acknowledges this with fun gameplay. However, repetitive aspects of the game and a lackluster story hamper this game from reaching its full potential. Having never played God Eater game before, I had no set expectations going into the game. With God Eaters second foray into the western market, this is the most complete God Eater experience available. Add content that bridges the gap between God Eater and the upcoming God Eater 2 will intrigue newcomers to the franchise, and hopefully give reasons for long - time fans to pick up this version of God Eater. In God Eater Resurrection, you play a customizable protagonist who is recruited to become God Eater. Titular soldiers are tasked with defeating monsters known as Aragami who have ravished the world. At introduction of the story, world is almost destroyed in the dystopian future. Where humanity has lost hope, you are identified as one of new - type God Eaters, who can change their God Arc weapons into both melee and range weapons at will. As new - type, you are put into a squad of God Eaters who have a range of personalities; from lone wolf Soma to happy - go - lucky Kota. There is a wide breadth of characters, each being likable in their own respect. The story is delivered through the use of in - game cutscenes that are played in - between missions, giving the player a glimpse of humanity's struggles. This dark theme does not resonate well during emotional scenes. Voice - acting is decent, but ultimately falls flat throughout the game. It is by no means meant to make you cry, but it does not have much emotional resonance, making you not care about the story and instead, itching to go back onto battlefield. God Eater Resurrections gameplay is just pure fun. It distinguishes itself from titles such as Monster Hunter through its use of the Burst mode system, in which you use your God Arc to devour Aragami in a way that would make Kirby jealous. Doing so initiates Burst mode, which gives you faster mobility and stat increases. Once you use God Arc to take Aragamis ability, you can then fire ability back at Aragami, another perk of the Burst system. Some enemies grant powerful attacks while others give you weaker attacks that almost make it unnecessary to use Aragamis Attack and instead go in swinging your weapon in Burst mode. The game wants you to be tactical, but balancing issues like the effectiveness of Aragamis Attack, make it difficult to be tactical in your approach, which the game emphasize.

10. Vandread

In the far future, humanity will leave Earth to colonize outer space. Group of colonists have segregated genders to separate planets. Taraak, homeworld of men, and Majere, homeworld of women, declare war on each other and this is where the story of Vandread begins. Tokai Hibiki is a third class citizen who wants to prove himself to his peers that he is not all talk, so he takes challenge of stealing Vanguard mech from one of the armories. Things didnt go too well and he ended up being stowaway and caught in a war between men and women. Little do they know that there is a looming threat amongst stars and two genders must set aside their differences and unite to defeat this unknown enemy. This is a battle of sexes on an galactic scale! While the show has 2D drawn characters, Vandread is one of the first animes who added fully rendered 3D models to every scene. At time, results were amazing: mechs, ships, and outer space were all computer generated CGI. Looking at it now, models look primitive if you compare them to current 3D modeling techniques, but they were carefully made and it gives anime a unique visual flair, sense of chaos, and personality.

9. Macross Zero

The story of Macross Zero takes place one year before the alien race, Zentraedi, arrives on Earth. Kudo Shin is your typical cocky ace pilot who is assigned on a mission to face Anti - UN forces on Mayan islands. Shin is stranded on one of the Mayan islands after being shot down by an enemy jet that can transform into a humanoid robot. While under care of local natives of the islands, Shin soon discovers the secret of myth of Birdman - creator of legend that is said to have shaped humanity. Macross Zero is the first anime in the franchise that fully transition from hand - drawn mechs to full 3D CGI, followed by Macross Frontier and currently airing Frontier. Having all the mechs and ships in 3D means more dynamic camera angles and more fluid movements. Sometimes 2D characters blend in with third dimension and theyre interesting to look at. Every dogfight is intense to the point of almost dizziness thanks to the pilots ' acrobatic skills, and dynamic use of the camera.

6. Ajin

Ajin is a unique kind of species that has the power of immortality. It is unknown how these kinds of beings exist, but what we know is that Ajin is walking amongst us. Nagai Kei is just your average high school student working hard to achieve his dream as a doctor. Unfortunately for him, his life turned upside down after he was killed in a traffic accident and came back to life in front of people and his friends. Kei is now running for his life as one of the feared beings called Ajin. Mixed criticisms from fans aside, Ajin is one of few anime with fully rendered 3D characters. Aside from main character Kei, art direction gives anime realistic feel to almost horror - like by giving IBMs or ghost forms of Ajin eerie look.

Final Thoughts

As much as I hate to admit, blending between 2D and 3D animation, as well as 3D animation itself, looks incredibly good. Normally I steer clear of CG heavy anime because of the way they look, but in this case, CG is almost always added to show presentations rather than taken away from them. One area of the show where this is most evident is in during play held by drama club. Even despite these episodes having a heavy amount of action, CG never looks bad, even against 2D backgrounds. The fights between Bill and Legushi were especially entertaining in this regard. It is truly a shame that Studio Oranges ' talent for 3D animation was wasted on this material.
