Ok, so I’m many months late on this rant, but anyway.

13 years ago, Madhouse animated Tetsuwan Birdy. This is what it looked like:

This year, in 2009, A1 Pictures animated Tetsuwan Birdy DECODE 2. This is what it looks like:

Ok, so it’s a 13-ep series vs an OVA. Madhouse vs A1. Digital techniques vs traditional handrawn techniques. And admittedly DECODE didn’t look that bad consistently, I just picked on it at a low point. BUT STILL! We are regressing unacceptably!

Whatever that sorry excuse for an image is, it’s atrocious.

(No, “artistic direction” is not a valid excuse.)

    I do have to agree with you on this one, the OVA was much better than Decode.

    That’s what I think every time I see a western animation. But of course its because they are part of the ghetto . I don’t approve but I understand.
