I guess it really shows that even if Jesus drew your anime, it’ll still be a shit one if its made by GONZO. Having seen the latest trailer of Shangri-La, I’m having serious 2nd thoughts about how much I’ll like it.
1. The music doesn’t seem that good, but sometimes they grow on us. At least it’s not Ali Project. Phew!
2. The lousy CG is back! Even in the trailer, you can see they intend to use their trademark GONZO crap CG on the mechanical objects like the tanks.
3. I thought it would be somewhat realistic sci-fi, but no, a boomerang that cuts through tanks thrown by a little girl in a short skirt who can jump as high as Spiderman.
4. Speaking of short skirts, hers defies gravity and wind resistance, in a unrealistically tasteful way. In other words, there aren’t any panties shots when in real life, wearing a tiny skirt and freefalling in mid-air will surely invert said skirt? Anyway, a good example is Rideback, where Ogata Rin’s skirt actually somewhat follows physics and her panties are shown in a bid to have some degree of realism, rather than just purely for fanservice’s sake.
5. The animation appears to be quite sucky but I guess it’s TV, not OVA and Gonzo’s broke.
6. Examples of great character design which couldn’t save rubbish anime = Most of Keiji Goto and wife’s productions, such as Real Bout High School, Utakata and Kiddy Grade. Most are by GONZO. Can Range Murata’s magic work?
