I wasn't sure if anyone has brought this topic up
in awhile, so I thought I might state some of my
Cel animation is really at end now. I mean almost
all new anime series and movies are going CG. And
that's bad news for all us cel collectors. Cel
animation is just dying out.....and I am sorry to
have to say it, but CG has taken over. Its
winning and saves animation companies money. It
saddens me to know this, in that I love animation
cels....each cel is so speical and tells it own
story, do you guys know what I mean?
For example number one, the aniamtion for X TV
was excellent. However, in my eyes the CG in the
TV series can never stand up to the cel animation
in the X Movie. Each scene in that movie are eye
boggling! How can such a beautiful thing be taken
away from us. Its just not fair. Secondly, animes
that are currently being released are CG and I
would love to own cels from them, but cannot. We
all know that one would rather own a real
production cel than a reproduction. Don't get me
wrong I would take a reproduction cel, but its
just not the same to me.
The way I approuch this problem is to continue to
collect cels with trading/buying/selling etc. We
must keep this form of animation of later being
lost forever. I just wanted to get all that out,
I feel much better now.
Please, I would love to hear what you guys think
about this and what your plans for cel collecting
are? Will you keep it going? Never buy another
animation cel etc?
