Darn, there go the hopes that they were finally getting started on that Blame! movie.

Wonder if it'll look kinda 3D cel-shading style like, say, Viewtiful Joe....

Who knows? Nowadays it's getting more difficult to tell apart cell-shaded 3D CG characters from 2D counterpart.

The two Japanese companies hope to compete with Hollywood and aim for the Cannes Film Festival.


Hmmm...that's a challenge. Hollywood has Pixar, Dreamworks, and others.

Now that we have an idea how it looks....

Let's see how well short skirts and worm's eye view translates to 3DCG. Laughing

(After all, there's an "uncanny valley" where these things become awkwardly life-like and uncomfortable and no longer ecchi funny.)

Quote:

"In this story, we meet fantastic creatures that gather all these little objects that fall into oblivion as they are forgotten by their owners when they step into adulthood. These creatures sneak into our world from a different dimension... they take all the ditched and forgotten 'treasures'... to build their own city...."


Sounds like a combination of Toy Story and Monsters, Inc and WALL-E. Wink

That image looks pretty nice, actually; they're getting closer to making anime style designs work in 3D.
And Otsuichi writing is always a good sign.

hm, sounds promising but we'll see. CG-that-looks-like-CG especially bothers me as far as CG goes but this looks pretty good, if that picture is really any indication.
