A heavy Sci-fi action series about killing aliens in the outer space to defend their ship. Got to admit that when I watched the first episode, I didn't like it very much. It was only after some time when I watched it again, this series shows me its' true strength. Its' strengths is in their story and the mysteries origin of the Gauna monsters.
It does take some time to get used to the 3d style but it is worth it! Currently Season 1 and 2 are out.
This is a series of short animated films with each shorts telling a different story. There are four stories which were directed by 4 different directors. What's common is their 3d rendered 2d style. This one really shows the power of using 3d to tell a good story and portraying memorable characters.
My favorite is the traveler story which he finds himself trapped in a shrine filled with ghosts.
A normal high school story that takes place in a abnormal world where immortal beings existed. From the same studio that did Knights of Sidonia, it is pretty intensely good.
Honestly at first, I didn't quite like it after watching the trailer because of the dark colors and dull mood but... after watching the movie, it is a great film telling a intense story filled with suspense!
The special effects used are pretty and suited the style of the animation. On top of that, their sound design is pretty well done too. Beside the movie, they are also releasing the series.
Appleseed is a military action Sci-fi film about the 2 soldiers that are also lovers. I believe this is one of my first Japanese full 3DCG anime that I watched. I still remember this film even after so long. Even though I have forgotten the exact plot, I still remember the action scenes as well as the good looking characters.
It is a full 3d animation rendered with 2d shader style but in the sequel movie, it is rendered in a 3d photo realistic style.
