r/anime discuss Orange’s drop in animation quality

Things We Saw Around The Web // Orange's Sharp decline on animation
I’ve seen things no one should ever see…

On Monday after watching the newest episode of Orange, Reddit flocked to the r/anime subreddit to figure out what the heck happened to the animation quality of the show. Chris mentioned several prime examples on his Episode 9 review (Contains Spoilers). From what everyone has gathered, the drop of quality is due to the significant decrease of key animators and outsourcing the episodes to studios in Korea.

Shin Godzilla might be the Highest Grossing Live-Action Movie in Japan This Year

Rocket News 24 reports that Shin Godzilla is doing very well in theaters, which surprisingly wasn’t anticipated. The movie was directed by Hideaki Anno, creator/director of Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Shinji Higuchi, director of the Attack on Titan live-action films. Shin Godzilla was the first movie in 12 years to come out from Japan. It was also announced at San Diego Comic Con 2016 that Funimation bought the theatrical, home entertainment, video on demand and broadcast rights for the film. So, Godzilla fans, expect the movie to be hitting all of the Americas (North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean) in select theaters soon.
