So I just finished watching Pokemon The Origin episode 2 and the animation was beautiful of course... but what the heck is up with anime and cars?
I mean even in some really well animated shows like Black Lagoon and Pokemon The Origin and some decent ones like Symphogear the cars have are almost always in CGI animations. I really just want to know why, it just gets so awkward sometimes!

IIRC, Initial D pioneered the use of CG cars in anime. (Why? No idea.)

Initial D is awesome, therefore all anime cars must be CG. One of the many rules of anime.


That was amazing

Yeah Initial D is pretty good. However Redline has some pretty cool non-crappy CG cars.

I imagine the artists in most anime series specialize in character art, so animating many angles of a car in motion would probably be dificult. Mech Anime being an obvious exception. Using a 3d model would partially resolve this issue since the model can be positioned anywhere and turned any direction etc.
