In my opinion, it has to be done right. Ufotable did a great job with fate/zero & stay night.

Ace Attorney's usage of CG is pretty bad. The jury is CG while the main cast is 2d animation... It looks off, but I understand that it's possibly due to the budget.

I personally prefer hand-drawn animation. It seems more artistic, and all too often CGI is just used horribly.

My review of AKB0048 and the CGI in it.

In the dark and dismal future when entertainment is banned who fights the man? Why AKB0048 the guerrilla idol group of course! The series follows the lives of 4 main characters as they try to reach and join the idle group and get accepted into the main unit of the idol group. The show has a good mixture of cute and adventure. There are a lot of positives with the show. It has an interesting storyline. The music is excellent and I particularly adore the first end theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atJj7gMJkiM . The actual traditional animation is also very good. The characters are interesting and only slightly cliche. The negatives are very few. Perhaps the biggest one is that the CGI is subpar and the transition between the two styles (CGI, traditional anime) is very distracting and jarring. Also the repeated heart motif in the hair and eyes of the girls is just annoying. Besides one would think that since all of AKB0048 has these motifs than the bad guys could identify idols and future idols based on that and arrest them. Despite these minor flaws I still give the show a 5 rating since I can't deduct .25 of a star. I highly recommend this show if you like idol shows and shows of a distopian future.


CGI distracted a lot from this show.; Edit: Replaced bad URL with good one.

No, I don't. CGI is like any other animation style. The medium doesn't matter as so much the talent of the people wielding it. Both CG and 2D animation can look both amazing and total ass.


This is certainly true.

I'm okay with CGI when I think it'll do something justice. If people are just trying to pop CGI in everywhere so that their anime can appear "modern", it vastly loses appeal. A good example would be God Eater.

CGI.... you'll either hate it because it looks out of place, or you won't even know it's there. it depends on the quality of the CGI.

personally, I couldn't care less.

No. I think the dated CG fits in well with everything else.

When it's too obvious. Sometimes it's ok.
