The subgenre is called Crossbreed, a mix of Hardcore Techno and DnB.
No one is calling this anime though. It's more so people referring to the different art styles and animation used alongside the editing/music reminding them of Animatrix and MTV Liquid which had heavy anime influences.Why is everyone calling this Animatrix or anime? While there might be some Japanese studios involved (I don't think we know if there are any?) this project seems to be a good mix of all sorts of animation, so there's no indication that there's any particular interest in going anime style or having Japanese creators involved in the anthology. I hope to see representation from lesser known European artists who I might not be familiar with honestly. The best thing about these anthologies by big name directors is exposure for talented smaller folks.
Yeah, I'm curious for this thing but I'd rather first see a guide for which of the episodes are good along with maybe warnings for how gory these get first.It will good to have a guide as to which episode to check out. Listened to some reviews that are pretty negative but they only had access to a selection of episodes (gratuitous objectification of women and feeling like a product of teenage angst being major ones)
