Blast From The Past: New Megazone 23 Anime To Be Crowdfunded Soon

Mecha anime shows are awesome but it's a shame that so few are released nowadays. Fortunately, AIC is bringing back one of their classics for older and newer fans. Is a reboot of Megazone 23 exciting enough to secure a successful crowdfunding campaign?

His facial expression in the picture says either "guess who's destroying your favorite franchise you litte biatch-ass-otaku-loser" or "I fapped to Boku no Pico 3 times and nobody knows".

I don't know why Kenji Kamiyama allows this dude to ruin his career like this. Like some people have already said his 3D animation directing is stuck in his Appleseed days. Just let Eiji Inomoto carry the torch of 3D animation in Japan and have Aramaki retire with whatever honor he has left. It's almost as if Kamiyama is doing this out of a deep obligation, or a sublime sense of pity. I will be shocked if Kamiyama sincerely digs this "retro" 3D style, or if he's convinced it's as good as western 3D animation like how Frozen enchanted Japan and the rest of the world.

Even with the overused tracking shots and slow mo, the first appleseed film was surprisingly watchable

I'll just pretend that part 3 of megazone 23 never existed.

His name is aramaki. He was destined to direct ghost in the shell.

What a absolute Failure of a Director,Never had a sucessful series or movie from him and yet Production I.G keeps him around.Single handedly ruin sac_2045 with his Shit skills as a CGI animator.

If SAC_2045 ended up being bad it'll most likely be due to him rather than Kenji Kamiyama.
