I was slightly nervous about a 3D-CG GitS anime, before, but now that I see it's a Nexflix exclusive my bar is being lowered still. I wonder if the other elements would make it worth it, later on.

At least we have Kamiyama Kenji co-directing it.

(Anyone remember the Korean cartoon Cubix that got licensed by 4kids? The animation reminds me of that. XD)

Mainly interested in High School Fleet Movie. Hope Wilhelmina gets a lot of screentime!

All those CGI Netflix stuff, though. Looks like they're really trying penetrate the anime market.

So is Netflix trying to force 3D CGI or?

it's not forcing CG, necessarily. More that CGI can be quicker and more detailed than 2D animation, leading to releasing more shows, likely to try to get more attention by saying, "look how many anime we have everybody". I don't mind personally, as many of the more recent CG series have been quite beautiful in their own right. The trailer for Levius looks beautiful as well. Eden and the new Ghost in the shell have a certain charm to them, and will likely look good in plenty of ways, but not as good as Levius is shaping up to look
