Kenji Kamiyama the goat director. High quality as always. I wish one day anime can become profitable enough to get this level of detail onto a tv format. Im guessing the simplistic character design does add a lot of fluidity. Hopefully there is some scifi element to it because the director is goat at that.

BTW this is all digital right? I remember hearing that the studio is known for that.


Yup the studio is founded to focus in digital animation.

The vehicle will be CG but the character animation is most definitely not. Style reminds me of the "Girl who leapt through time"


Digital=/=CG the difference from the usual is that animator draw on tablet using flash or other programs instead of drawing on paper.
