Re: anime studios going to digital (Fri Jun 11 18:24:57 1999
Yes, Toei and Gonzo are already turned into computerized anime studios, no more hand-painted cels. Studio Ghibli is migrating to computers too, its current film, Yamada-Kun is fully done on computers. I don't surprise its new films after this one will be done on computers as well. Gainax is migrating to computerized animation quickly, its recent TV series, A Boyfriend/Girlfriend Situation is done fully on computers. Production I.G. and Sunrise are changing gradually. AIC will probably take a while to change. I expect in the next 3-5 years, most of the large anime studios will switch totally into computers. Then it will probably take another few more years for the small anime studios to switch. The majority of US and European animation studios have already changed into computers, it is just a matter of time for the Japanese anime studios to change. Bottom line: Collect cels while you can.
