First order of business: if you haven’t checked out Ajin yet (airing this season), then go watch the first episode to see what you think, especially if you
were a fan of Tokyo Ghoul or Parasyte (seriously, this main character is Kaneki and Shinichi all over again). At the very least, check out some GIFs, because my topic for this week is Ajin’s animation style. I was recently talking about Ajin with friends, who told me that they liked the story but dropped the show because they found the entirely computer-generated animation unbearable. So, I thought I’d take some time to discuss the role of CGI in anime.
After all, Ajin isn’t the first out of recently released animes to rely almost entirely on computer generated graphics.
