I just watched the pilot for the Ghost InThe Shell 2045. I was excited that they were doing something but this machinima style is completely soulless… which is ironic given the subject.
I don’t mind the environments, dynamics and physics, and most of the hard surface animation is pretty good, but the character stuff is so bland… the facial animations are minimal… like an old video game. I think worst of all because they are trying to go for naturalism, they lose all dynamism. Anime is expressive… Although the writing isn’t any where near the level of the series or the films so it’s a moot point.
Plus the opening sequence… money makes the world go round? What kind of song choice is that??
I started the post to ask a question on whether this is becoming a regular style now and ended up complaining.
What are your thoughts? It feels like it’s the early 90s again and it’s Lightwave and Babylon 5…
