I don't know how hard it is.
But, every American animation release is in 3D-
Shrek, Megamind, Dispicable Me.....
I mean like every single one!


Do you realize how much and how long it takes them to do that? 2 or 3 years for a movie thats barely 2 hours, so if it's a 25 episode anime, it's gonna be real hard.

They'd blatantly break the barrier between the 2D anime and 3D real life?! How are the Otaku supposed to differentiate between anime and their lives?



3D as in 3D animation.

Like these guys



Here's something that's lower quality


Pretty much all video games are 3D

I'm sure you're right.
But if those American films have been in the works for 2 or 3 years
why has'nt any Japanese studio even touched the technology?
I mean they make the 3D HD TV's in Japan, Nintendo is coming out
with a 3D system, PS3 does 3D. So where are the Anime?

Maybe the Japanese like doing it the traditional way, where there are no surprises in cost, length of production or the increased number of staff they would need to do the job in a reasonable amount of time which will be excessive at best. The 3D games for all systems takes years to make and burns through much more money than it takes to make one 13 episode anime season. It takes even longer to beta test the games to work out bugs and other errata before it's even close to being finished.

This is entirely my opinion, but 3D is being terribly over-hyped. It's nice in movies and games sure, but it does not need to permeate all facets of visual media. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the local weather man started using 3D maps, not doppler mind you, but the ability to look down on approaching storms at any angle. That would be a nice effect on hurricanes though.

I'm sorry but I cannot accept those examples above as 3D. They simply added detail to the fore and backgrounds which in itself is not 3D. If they had Dash running across the water and splashes water at the camera and it "looks" like it jumps out of my screen and I take cover, or if Bahamut braced itself and all the theatrics going into breathing flame/energy looks like it's going to burn me are my beliefs in what 3D is. At least it was the definition for the last 20+ years with those funky red and green glasses.

Nintendo is japanese, ya know, and for the anime, are you talking about the cinema 3D glasses or 3D animation?

And Nintendo owns Pokemon, as a matter of fact the first CD device add-on for the Super Nintendo was called what? The Playstation. Nintendo couldn't get the deal so Sony struck out on their own and we got the Playstation(s) we know today. Apparently at the time CD technology was held by three companies Sega had the Sega CD, and Nintendo tried to get one of their own and it fell through. All of this I new before I was 20.

In the olden days 3D needed both the glasses and the 3D animation to go with it, they were inseparable. I think that's still the case today.

Exerpt from Wikipedia (which how I remembered it)

"PlayStation was the brainchild of Ken Kutaragi, a Sony executive who had just come out of his hardware engineering division at that time and would later be dubbed as "The Father of the PlayStation". The console's origins date back to 1986 where it was originally a joint project between Nintendo and Sony to create a CD-ROM for the Super Famicom/SNES console. The PlayStation made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in June 1991 when Sony revealed its console, a Super Famicom/SNES with a built-in CD-ROM drive (that incorporated Green Book technology or CDi). However, a day after the announcement at CES, Nintendo announced that it would be breaking its partnership with Sony, opting to go with Philips instead but using the same technology."

Now here's a pic of the original prototype playstation with a Super Famicom (Japanese Super Nintendo). I haven't seen this in twenty years.

I can't really stand the thought of fully 3D animated anime. I can't stand that thought for most cartoon series, either. I prefer 3D as a film technology. I have nothing but that's how I like it.

I hope not. 3D is starting to become an epidemic amongst film makers.

I don't like that idea so much. In my opinion anime just wouldn't be anime without its 2d appeal. However there is one anime show on CR that is shown in 3d.

All out 3D anime would probably be obnoxious. I do however like how some animes now use 3D backgrounds. And for this I don't mean popping out of the screen 3D, just designed to look more 3D. Example: Time of Eve.

Even if they just made the backgrounds all out 3D with the glasses and everything, but left the characters 2D I don't think it would look good. And the thought of a truly 3D anime character goes against the very spirit of anime.

Maybe that epidemic will turn into a pandemic.

P.S. Lets hope not.
