KAIJI EPISODE 1
Excellent stuff. The only thing I’ve seen so far that looks worth following.
DRAGONAUT EPISODE 1
This had some nice animation, but all in service of something incredibly generic. And what’s worse the Dragonauts of the title threaten to be horrible 3D CG creations that’ll stick out like a sore thumb. Bits will look nice in an MAD animation showcase, but it’s not worth the bother.
I got the first ep of this to watch, but so far I’ve only briefly flicked through. The idea is neat, that of having characters who use “real” magic concepts, rather than stuff made up for the story, but the animation and design is generic anime with a hint of moe (though equal opportunity moe in this case, the male characters get the moe treatment too), and sucks all the delicate linework and character from the original designs.
HATE FUN BONUS NON ANIME MEMO
The Peter Serafinowicz Show
Oh dear, I was hoping this would be funnier than it turned out. As it was the funniest bits were the bits he’d already done on Youtube, the rest raised a smile, but no guffaws were heard chez Brack.
