Going only with Trickster.

Will be my first time hear Gackt voice a character, and sing in general. Well, since I know he's famous and I've never checked anything from him at all, I think this is quite the chance to witness his talent.

Ajin OVA is intriguing. Is there any info on what it covers?

Gantz:0 continues to look freaking great. This is some Garlock level of animation quality. If only we got entire manga in form of movies like that...

Trickster continues to look promising. The animation looks nice. Hopefully it manages to capture the bizarre surrealistic style that Ranpo Kitan did pull off, but also manages to have a comprehensible story, which Ranpo Kitan did not manage to.

A bit disappointed that Fiend of Twenty Faces seems to be just a pretty boy this time. If there was one thing Ranpo Kitan did extremely well, its character designs for Edogawa Ranpo's characters.

Then again maybe this dude is just a stand-in for a twist reveal of the real one?

The Ranpo show is going to be bad again. A shame.

Holy crap I thought Gantz was live-action for a second, that's pretty impressive CGI.

Lol at these drama queens hating on Ajin. I don't care what people say, the CGI in Ajin wasn't even that bad. It wasn't stellar, but it wasn't horrible.

Wuaaaaoa Shounen Tanteidan was already awful from PV1 but it just looks worse and worse, didn't think it could get worse from PV1 but I was clearly mistaken...

Gantz is pretty slick tho o:

So much hate for Ajin. Weow.

Don't care much for the Ajin ova anyway, but can't wait for its second season. Gantz CGI was pretty damn good... Maybe I should watch the series.

Mm, I'm curious to see that Gantz movie in the future.

Ajin OVA
>High budget CGI
>Not sloppy shit like majority of full on CGI anime

What is this sorcery

Gantz:O is an example of how CGI should be used in anime. Either go high budget or go home.

Gantz:O hype is real

exactly i am surprised by the animation looks way better than typical 3d like Ajin or better.
