Title: So...Voltron Force looks like utter crap.
Post by: TTYT on May 27, 2011, 09:44:45 PM
I mean that literally - the 2D animation looks cheap, and the fail when it comes to shading the CG to blend with the 2D - my god, the fail... Futurama and Avatar: The Last Airbender blended their CG elements in perfectly, why can't others figure that out?

Seriously, Nickelodeon...You said that quality of animation was good enough?

Oh... I dunno... I would imagine that 10 year olds could enjoy it just fine... Sorta like how I enjoyed the original piece of shit cheap Voltron cartoon when I was ten years old.

I'm not saying it'll be a total piece of crap - it may end up decent writing-wise...I'm saying the animation burns my eyes. The original Voltron at least had rather good animation for its time.

Well, then my next logical follow up question would be: why the fuck do you care about animation aimed at 10 year olds?

Um...Because I'm an animation nerd?

Fair enough.... but I will draw the line at Curious George and/or Clifford the Big Red Dog... My three year old loves them... so don't you dare call them fail! He will kick you in your shins!

Like the mech designs.  Human designs are the same generic stuff we see everywhere.


Total nostalgia kick when the theme song at the end kicked in.
