With the advent of a fresh CM, Little Busters’ upcoming anime is looking worse than ever – confirming scenes of single frame action to be present alongside the MS Paint backgrounds and not so splendid characters.
One truly wants this series to be something at least half-respectable, although when one is met with the sight of characters running like ragdolls atop an abnormal block of vivid green, perhaps intended to be grass, the level of promise is looking settled at a number much less than zero. That, however, was a worry already established – this latest commercial clip furthers concerns as it shows some fidgeting in the animation, jumping around between frames in a manner absent of smooth transition.
This clip is intended to highlight the loli heroine of the series, Natsume Rin – yet it seems instead, the video merely does her an injustice by portraying her quite poorly, particularly during a moment near the end of the video in which she lands a kick upon some infidel through no more than a single still frame.
It’s as if JC Staff saw the sort of half-baked goods A-1 Pictures can manage to push and still secure a popular vote – subsequently formulating their operations around this tactic taken from the 1960′s, sub-par single frame action. The difference however between seeing it now, and 52 years ago, is that 52 years ago, it was actually a cutting-edge effect – now it is merely a trending budget-cutting technique.
Whilst one would normally say a series as this looks “terrible”, that would be quite an understatement in this instance unfortunately.
