CGI In Anime!

Published February 22, 2016 by Shay Taree

I’ve noticed more and more in anime that CGI is being used and I’ll be honest I’m not the biggest fan of it. I feel like it gives the anime a fake look to it that isn’t realistic. 

I definitely favor the original hand drawn look to anime since it’s just looks much cleaner and realistic. But maybe this is just me. 

But what do all of you think of CGI in anime? Do you enjoy it and want to see it more or do you want to stick to the hand drawn artistic style of anime?

Comment down below to let me know what you think of this. I can’t wait to read them!

  • When it comes to anime, I prefer hand drawn. I don’t mind it if it’s being used on fight scenes like Dragon Ball Z or One Piece but I don’t think it will feel the same if it was used on the entire anime series. If it was used in video games, I would not mind at all like One Piece: Pirate Warriors.

    If it was like the picture you used of Advent Children, that would be different. I guess if it’s originally from a game like the Final Fantasy series, CGI might work.

  • computer aided design (CAD)*That’s what my animation tutor told us to call it.* I personally think it all comes down to how it’s integrated into the show.
    “Straight Title Robot Anime” uses it to comical effect while “Arpeggio of Blue Steel” looks awkward because it’s trying to look 2d while being obviously 3d.

  • I have mixed opinions. I enjoyed the use of CG in Advent Children (even though you’re right that it doesn’t look realistic . . . but neither does classic anime style). But I think that for most actual anime, I do prefer a more hand-drawn sort of style; it just seems to fit better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I prefer hand drawn, but some anime do make an exception. I just feel like CGI is more fit for video games… and if anime wasn’t hand drawn, it just wouldn’t give off the “anime” vibe or whatever. I don’t quite think hand drawn is more realistic than CGI, but personally, I would still favor hand-drawn animations over CGI for anime. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • This seems to be a recurring opinion with this topic that many people like the look of hand drawn anime better and prefer CGI when it comes to video games.
