@JizzyHitler You're right.
But I was thinking about their previous shows.

@ronie91 You kind of did.
And I know who you were talking about.

Studio Trigger don't do CG homie.. cause it's Imaishi we're talking about
They've used some, but it's really well hidden.
And it's Amemiya not Imaishi.

i know the second part of the footage was from Nihon Animator Expo, but i always thought that was Ultraman or something. Not... whatever this is.
Nope, the expo short was Gridman.
But there was one about The Ultraman, an anime and manga from the 70s.

Do we actually have niggas here that haven't seen a tokusatsu show yet plan on watching this? Wow, what a shame. Anyways from the look of the teaser it looks like Gridman is getting a redesign which is cool. Hope they introduce Gridman sigma. That would be cool

>watching anything toku
Nice joke. ;)

I was a little surprised that in the PV they showed animations of the series in Anime Expo, and in this key visual the designer seems very different from the likes of Amemiya. It's more for an "Evangelion style" [designer and color] than for a more Gurren Lagann type. Let's see how it goes: Akira Amemiya is a veteran and Trigger is reliable.
It's more of a Ultraman Orb style, designed by the same guy who is working on this project. Not sure where you got GL from.

pretty sure its confirmed all 3 of the mechas trigger is doing will be traditional drawings, looks like trigger and sunrise are the last beacons of hope for that
Let's not forget Bones.


Not to waste time, I will not even answer your question. It was very clear that I was talking about the designer.

I normally wouldnt but their new show in january even if its not a mecha centered show has CGI mechs so i wont really feel right saying they are a beacon of hope until they release another TV mecha series.

Aw, PV looks quite disappointing. And I had high hopes from Trigger.

We didn't got much about it aside from a script writer and the PV which doesn't have much content. Eh, I guess.

Fall 2018 is still quite far. So, is Promare going to be called PRRRomare or something? We have FranXX, SSSS.Gridman so....

Tokusatsu anime? Lol, what's going on?
Heck, did I just saw Optimus Prime in there?
I need more PV so I would know if I should watch this or not.

Same.

The expo short was a nice little treat if you know who Mr. Yoshinori Kanada and Mr. Masami Obari are (Amemiya is a fanboy when it comes to their animation), mixed in with some nods to the Brave series (which Obari happened to work on heh.)

Dec 1, 2017 11:14 PM by Cabron

So this one is going to be a darker remake of the franchise, I guess? And is that CGI?
