I really liked the CG animation in the openings from Part 1 - 3, they definitively were not low-budget considering how high-quality they were. I was, and still am a little, disappointed they dropped them for the more traditional 2D openings, which I assume happened because of what I assume was a budget cut that Part 4 received in relation to the previous parts.serious question: why do people like cg openings in anime?
when i started watching jojo and loving it, i was a bit taken aback by the cg and it honestly gave me the impression of a lower budget more than anything. I still liked the openings, and bloody stream does a good job of hiding the models behind flat shaded shadow figures, but as soon as i got to crazy noisy bizzare town i was glad there was no cg.
I don't think they were ever meant to fool you into thinking it was 2D, 3D animation can be beautiful in its own way, Pixar has been doing for at least 20 years now. lol
I don't see why people would be supposed to be here for the 2D animation.I don't get the appeal; arent people supposed to be here for detailed 2d animation? that's the medium after all. I'm genuinely not trying to start shit, i just was a bit shocked when i saw people lamenting the loss of 3D after id watched parts 1-4 pretty much ignoring online discussions
Anime is not defined by being 2D animation, otherwise stuff like Land of the Lustrous (or 50%+ from parts of recent Mecha anime) wouldn't be anime.
