NOBODY has been able to animate as well as the original theatrical shorts with a TV Budget and 11 minute running time.
Not Warner, not Disney, not Genndy, not McCracken.
The CLOSEST we've come to theatrical quality animation were the Spielberg cartoons; and those had Spielberg's cash so that's not a TV Budget. Neither was Green Eggs and Smeg.
Akira had a billion fucking dollar budget and was an hour and 30 minutes; they could do what they wanted because the budget was so high.
This at best has a $200,000 dollar budget.>Anime looks great and that never uses tweens
1. The newer Jojo episodes use CACANi for slow-mo shots and it sticks out.
2. Anime is more respected by the general populace as "a legitimate medium," and as such gets a higher budget that the execs spend on hookers and blow while they whip the animators
while cartoons have been stuck with the labels "goofy" and "for kids" since the 60's.
3. American animation wasn't limited until the 50's; and then it plummeted off a fucking cliff. Japanese animation started in the 60's, and so they didn't have a past to cast a shadow on them.>>114454634
IT'S A BUDGETRY INNOVATION
IT GETS THE JOB DONE AT A LOWER COST
GET IT THROUGH YOUR SKULL
THEATRICAL ANIMATION ISN'T TV ANIMATION
