CGI is almost always terrible anyways. I doubt even if the manga is any good can they make it watchable.

Gon's a manga about a little, tiny dinosaur, mostly like a baby t-rex. He goes around the world sometimes threatening other animals (lions, bears etc...) or just make friendships. Mostly he's in search of food, and it resolves often with disasters for the other species.

This would be epic if it wasn't 3D CGI.

I really don't see a big deal about it being cgi... 80% of what we see in modern anime is cgi too because it's fast and accurate (read: cheap) -- they just make efforts (usually) to make it look hand-drawn. If the tekken loop Deithwen posted is any indication, it could be worth watching.

I don't think GON said anything in the manga. It should be WITHOUT SPEECH. So no need for VAs.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

True, but it is specified as 3D CGI. I have seen a single 3D CGI anime that didn't make my eyes bleed, and that was Advent Children. And the Tekken loop didn't look that great - it was very stiff.

Gon manga was awesome; so I'm gonna watch the anime regardless of its graphics.

Oh my most of Korean production group fails, even though it tends to get better with art or graphics; most of the time the story gets too childish. (I know this, since I grow up with them.)

Do not want.

Yeah, but for 1998 that was pretty awesome.

1998? Forgive me, then. I'm slightly more reassured that it could look decent, but I'll still be iffy on the whole idea of it being in 3D CG (especially since it's a TV anime and not a movie) until I can see some actual footage of what they're doing here. Gon was my first manga and is very special to me - I want nothing less than the best out of any Gon anime.

That's not a promo video. It's a clip from a video game (apparently a 1998 video game) that featured the same character. It is in no other way related to this production.

And for the record, the manga is amazing.

To those who have never heard of Gon you guys should really check out the manga. It's told entirely without dialogue and the art is some of the best you will ever see.

I'm not sure a Gon anime is a good idea, but I'm looking forward to it anyway because I love Gon.

There is no dialogue in Gon. No need for an English dub or any dub for that matter.

At least one anime where I won't have to wait for any fansub :D
I'm really curious, though I only have one volume of the manga, but it's still awesome :)

Gon is one of my all time favorite manga, I seriously hope that CGI will turn out decent - I have my doubts on this.
I'm wondering if there will be scream or "natural" sounds made by Gon, or if it will be music in background, those are little things that could help the experience... For me there should be little scream and voices "dinosauresque" withouth too much BGM, and I hope they won't be assholes that hire a renowned VA for this task (probably the budget is very low on this).
