Of course not, the avalanche has already started.

Hey, their fault for allowing it. =p And the fact that he's the director of Mushishi makes it even worse.

Since the manga is a freaky psychological horror story, I'd say the animators have succeeded brilliantly.

As for the director, that's just disappointing to find out that he screwed up this hard. He doesn't get a free pass from me. Mushishi was great, but doesn't mean I forgive for this. Mushishi came out quite a few years ago now.
You watched the show or are you actually basing all this on screencaps? Most of the people overreacting are just going off caps, the 4-5 people in this thread who actually watched the raw otoh aren't running around like chickens with no heads.

The manga is not ruined, it's the same as it ever was.

The anime decided to go with an experimental, original concept that affects not only the visuals but the entire production down to pacing, music and sound. You don't have to like it, but to say it's crap, bash the studio and claim that director screwed up - just because you're disappointed that you don't get pretty, sexy ladies? That's hardly fair.

What! That's absolute rubbish, the entire story, dialogue, characters and pacing is ruined by this experimental animation technique! My proof? Well just look at the screencaps and you'll have to agree. *smirks*

Do not be ridiculous. This is a visual medium, so the visuals are in fact critical to a production. The rotoscoping looks highly distracting and quite ugly. It's a half-assed attempt to make this like a live action show, but without actually being live action. If I can't even stand to look at the visuals, I'm not going to last long.

I've also long been wary of Zexcs and hardly liked anything they did. This just seals it for me. What in the world possessed them to OK a project like this? HORRIBLE.

Yep. I dropped this before even actually seeing it. I saw enough SS and .gif's to understand that this became complete shit. It looks repulsive and this is a visual medium, so I feel wholly justified in thinking that.

If I have any self-respect, I'll save myself the torture.

Did people ever learn from the horrible animated movie "Lord of the Rings"? I guess they did not.

I like it, its look straightforward ugly but in most moment I actually enjoy the stickman animation.

Also the background and OST actually in very high quality in normal standard

The animation is great if you can take it.

I know this isn't related, but there were so many people that had this mindset about Kaiba(including myself for some time) and have no idea the great series they missed.

I mean, I can understand if you started to watch it and said "Don't like the animation style, I can't watch it", but to call this "complete shit" without having viewed all aspects of the episode is unfair and ridiculous =02.

I guess the director is a fan of old school seinen artworks.

The character visuals feels really similar to Danchi Tomoo.
Though I agree they need to smooth up some things, especially the faces. It looks like they tried to appear more seinen but failed miserably.

Since everyone is quick to post screencaps of epic fails (and sure,there's a few to choose from)

Here's some parts that looked all right to me

Images
this close up looks fine to me
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?


Images
like the way the teacher was done
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?


Images
thie girls kubrick stare + the slight trans trav was quite effective at setting up the tension
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?


Images
our friend Baudelaire looks good!
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Also all the backrounds are really really nice and help contribute to the athmosphere. Don't get me wrong though, that's doesn't make up for the faces missing half the time.
It's not the style I'm against,I find it quite intriguing actually,it's the execution that leaves me disapointed.

In the great words of Deion Sanders:

I created this image
This thing that you could imagine
You could love it or hate it but he was prime time

When you making a difference it's gone be haters
When you provoking change it's gone be nay sayers
People don't condone what they've never seen
And some of the stuff I tried to do they had never seen

I'm not sure if there's anything I can say that hasn't already been said repeatedly... All I can do is recommend the manga to those who are dropping it right off the bat who haven't already read it. It's quite good, imo. I understand what some are saying, but you obviously don't have to force yourself to watch something... No matter how good the story may be. Especially when you can just go to the source material instead. That's my two cents.

Also, I'm just going to leave this here:

the problem is that the director sh*t on the character design in the hardest possible way he could.

Also, i couldn't stand that pop-up type of animation, i mean, they really need to be at less than 1 meter to see the characters actually got a mouth and eyes? Now i know what my 87 years old grandma feels with her cataracts and glaucoma.

Maybe this was just the wrong manga to use this on,even if done the way I would like it the final results would be far from the manga art,so people would be complaining regardless.Something like Soil would have been a good candidate.
