Well,if CG animation is used like it was in Final Fantasy then the effects would be outstanding...But the moment I watched the first episode of Blassreiter,it was horrible the way they used CG animation on it...

Actually only the motorcycles... But the fighting still can be improved

I like cg anime if the people look realistic. Sometimes they come out looking like a waltdisney version of ken and barbi which is really weird. Not enough expressions and everyone looks plastic. And hair -- looks like an overused gel ad. But sometimes, say like in Final fantasy, I liked it. The more realistic it looks the better.

The same goes for cell anime. I like it when it's well done and if the art sucks, the value of the anime goes down

CG animation makes a series look too clean and polished, almost like characters are some kind of perfect plastic model. I'd much rather watch something from the late 80's or early 90's, even if it's censored and poorly dubbed. Why, it's half the fun of watching Speed Racer.

yeah the fighting could have been a little better. and it seems like vehicles are sometimes hard to animate. it kinda seems like the just kind of float along the surface rather than actually moving.
but if you had final fantasy VII ac graphics then it would probably cost too much too make.

the Japanese do it best they blend it with there normal animation. they do well enough in most cases that you cannot even see the transition from normal to CG. the CG is uses to for more refined animation or were the level of animation required goes a little beyond the abilities of the animators. in that CG is great.
Zoids, Ghost in the shell: innocence, Stream boy, and Kardas are all excellent examples

but where you see an entire show that is based CG and it is obvious that the CG used is cover for otherwise bad animation then it sucks. transformers beast wars was an example of this

i thought A LOT of anime is CGI, i think you mean 3D renders?
depends like someone said, Linbarell is nice, cause it is consistent and lags very little, and similar texture to bg,
but the ones like dragonaut, i absolutely hate :/
and ff7 advent is <3 xD

I have nothing inherently against CG, its just most of it is poorly done and looks like a playstation 1 game. Often when it is integrated into traditional animation it sticks out like a sore thumb and ruins it for me. I mean, usually it looks nothing like the rest of the art and just looks weird, cheap and fake.
Of course, I only really notice the bad uses of it, I think some of the best looking anime is "computer assisted"

i don't like it when they mix regular anime with CG animation. .

FF has great graphics. .square enix is best at CG animation, they can make a character look as realistic as they wanted to with the loads of money they have. .

2D and 3D.. I don't really care if the two are used together as long as it doesn't ruin the feel of the anime..
