Lol, that CGI was bad. And I'd rather watch Steven Universe than watching this crap.

Better watch the video before you complain about the CG and not every CG will be like Berserk level, especially this one.

You want to watch Steven Universe than Houseki no Kuni. A Cartoon that has not consistent art and sometimes the character has different proportion and those not know in which direction it wants to go with the story. And the fight scenes are boring. Here is a video that explains better what is wrong with Steven Universe:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaR8KO4VFPM

But with Houseki no Kuni you have better fights, animation and an interesting story that knows where it wants to go.

I have this show on my PTW list. Overall, this series reminds me a bit of Crystal Gems. :p

I like how you people assume I didn't watch the video. Of course I did, it still looks awful.

I still really hate how the characters are CG, their movements are just so stiff. I don't see why they had to over use the CG for the characters. I mean, I'm sure the CG should work in their favor for some scenes (like the fighting scene looks pretty ok and them breaking apart worked well too), but when they are just standing around talking their moments are just so stuff. and the characters design..... I like moe and all, but these characters look way too cute compared to their design in the manga.

You can call it a subjective taste just like you would anything else: genre, character trope, studio etc. If you don't find it to look shitty, that's your opinion (how many all CGI shows you've watched that let you say that so confidently is another story). Just expect your opinion to remain in the minority though.

I'm curious about one thing, is there any full CG show where the animation can be said to be "good" ? Names?

If there are, how much this compares, given only this preview?

(I can only remember a movie of final fantasy, with photorealistic animation, but that barely looks like an anime, it had surely a better budget, and this one is a full serie, many more total minutes of animation required)

If we're talking TV quality CGI (not the FF movies), the ones I've seen so far that I've found to be pretty acceptable were Arpeggio of Blue Steel, and Bubuki Buranki. I heard people didn't mind Ajin either, but I haven't seen it so I couldn't give you an opinion on it.
