Nope, those are Murata's designs. Hopefully the anime accompanying his designs doesn't suck this time.

GONZO jumping on the 3D bandwagon makes me worry about the project's future though.

Still no word on whether they're drawing objects and characters from two viewpoints, or just layering offset flat planes.

Definitely looks that way, but it's strange that they didn't just come out and say that when it's so obviously his art style. That is, unless Gonzo is aping his style which could lead to a very negative reaction from diehard Murata fans.

In my humble opinion most 3D projects are going to fail if you have to buy one of the new 3D TV's. However if they can find a way to do it without having to splurge on an expensive new TV it could end up doing quite well.

I agree 3D is not going to appeal to everyone and Gonzo is kind of a hit or miss for me, I love RomeoXJuliet and Ghost Hunt, but Glass Fleet was kind of meh.

Hell, I say, "Good for GONZO!" They need to put something out on the shelves, unfortunately, the anime they tend to create don't float well in this current moe-centric market. Don't get me wrong, I love my lolis and moe-cuteness, but many companies are in a sink or float situation in Japan right now. Obviously, GONZO's one of them. I wish them luck. I think they're a great company that creates beautiful moving art.

Don't you think that if some people still believe Blu-Ray upgrading is too expensive, the companies pushing the envelope yet again with 3-D tech would take this into consideration? Blu-Ray's 3-D specification should allow for complete and total 2-D backwards compatibility.
Quote:
Regarding compatibility, the specification supports playback of 2-D discs in forthcoming 3-D players and can enable 2-D playback of Blu-ray 3D discs on the installed base of Blu-ray Disc players currently in homes around the world.

Yep, it certainly doesn't appeal to me. It just isn't immersive enough (read: not at all) to justify the extra cost for the consumer, and the conversion process is obviously going to subtract from time and money spent elsewhere in the production, especially in this medium I'd think.

In several years when the various rendering techniques become established and costs bottom out I'm sure I won't care, but the experience is still going to be fundamentally lacking at that point. In the mean time, I'm going to exercise my right to complain about something I'm otherwise almost always for: new consumer technology.

Definitely Murata - which is good to hear since he is no longer involved with Mardock Scramble, and yes - I hope they are animated more like the Shangri-la OP than the show itself.
Hopefully this has nothing to do with their 3D project since that is pretty much guaranteed to be a full CG production.

Delusional, Range Murata loves doing designs for little kids. It's just a coincidence they happen to look similar.

If Murata is involved in the 3D project then I'm interested. A little skeptical, but Gonzo has done many amazing series before - namely Last Exile. I guess at this point it's impossible to hope for a sequel to that though. Very Happy Don't know if I'd want them to risk ruining it anyway, but the ending was already a let down for me.

I'd note that the guy's a ringer for Dio, the girl in the coat is a close match for Lavie - and Last Exile predates Ghost Hound by 4 years. Range Murata has his types, and he makes good use of them. I don't see much in the way of resemblance to Ghost Hound charas, myself.
