Creating this topic to vent a bit about some comments i see about berserk (2016) and its animation since its way easier to point to flaws.

Would i like it in traditional 2d animation with sakuga? Hell yes i would figuratively, and probably also literaly, jizz myself if like production IG or some high-end studio was behind the wheel but I can't in my right mind be mad about the CG animation they are using.

Fully hand drawn traditional animation can be SUPER expencive, it can cost between $15,000 up to $1,000,000 per finished minute according to Cartoon Brew. CG on the other hand is WAY cheaper to produce, computers are super efficient in rendering the anime and its easier and cheaper for new staff to learn.

In my opinion I'm glad they opt to use cheaper CG and stay true to the pacing of the story so far, instead of skipping what they think its irrelevant content to save money and butchering the series completly.

What do you think?

Berserk has trash animation because aniime industries would rather put all their budgets in trash moe shows because they know our generation is full of people who get turned on by 10 year old little girls in kimonos. #BringBackOldAnime #EradicateMoeAnime

I think we already have a discussion thread for Berserk, so you should share these thoughts there if you haven't already. Therefore I've closed this thread. Here's the link to the discussion thread:

Regarding Berserk, yeah the animation isn't stellar and makes things look extra "off" sometimes compared to hand-drawn, but I think it's quite watchable, so if it were a choice between getting to see it, even done in this lower budget way, and not getting to see it all, well, I'd rather have the option to see it (since I don't have plans to read the manga).
