This next Kenshiro anime would be full of CG??? Aww come on....
I've heard many infamous things about Souten no Ken already before despite being a successor of Hokuto no Ken.

This anime is already dead. >.<

Can't believe Polygon Pictures got even worse

TV 3DCG is not the same as Movie quality 3DCG (Blame, Godzilla) so its not going to look the same as the latter

Jokes aside, this actually looks like a fucking early ps2 cutscene

Don't care about CG. Same studio that made great shows like Sidonia, Ajin and Blame

The PV reminds me of the JoJo OPs. I wish the character models had a darker, thicker outline. I think it would look better that way.

My problem isn't even that. I don't mind full 3DCG if done right (Houseki no Kuni).

But my problem is how it's done which feels iffy and it looks bland on paper. Like, it just feels like Berserk where it misses details on how it looks and the structure of it doesn't mesh well either.

Of course it doesn't look like the worst I've seen, but this based on the drafts (not the actual thing) isn't good.

Holy hell kenshiro's neck, my god.

I don't hate 3DCG, but this is not the kind of anime that'd fit this style. The new godzilla movie, at least the trailers, looked great with CG. Not martial arts.


P.s Omae wa mou Shinderu.

Full 3DCG, god no, that just looks terrible.

Those draft designs for those characters looks awful ._.

But then again, the PV shown was another story (it looked decent to good but).

Yeah this looks pretty off.
