    Helsing, one of the best examples of bad animation. Basically a still image with a moving background to cut down on time.

    Akira was made in 1988 (The manga 1982) Matrix was made in 1999 and Snyder's 300 was made in 2006. Akira didn't copy those films, but the two films probably did.

    that's such a bs reason behind the animation standard for white gloves. I could never deny or disavow jazz icons' influence on certain characters in certain shorts, but come on. he says bimbo was coded black and bimbo's initiation is about trying to recruit him to the KKK??? that short was undoubtedly about secret societies in general, and moreso free masons. the KKK was in it's EXTREME infancy at the time of the short's release. gotta love white mansplaining by a white dude with white hair, I guess.

    what he said about the glove is fals. Still, in the age of black and white cartoons, separating characters' round-edge hands from their black bodies was hard. Gloves were an easy way to make their hands stand out. ... Once animation moved away from black and white, Mickey and his pals kept their signature white gloves

    Love the videos - I would love to see you guys break down the shift (mainly in Anime,) where cell drawn animation was dropped for partial CG and how it was so terrible in the beginning. Hand drawn characters on CG backgrounds, CG characters on hand drawn backgrounds, or CG elements like cars or attacks that don't blend with anything. Like how DBZ's hand drawn attacks look & work versus Naruto's problem where the characters are one style, the backgrounds are another and their attacks are really bad CG not blending in with anything. But this same style got refined to better blending of CG later on.

    Bad animation? In anime series, when they change directors or studios between chapters. For example, the first tournament on Saint Seiya, specially the fight between Seiya and Shiru, against the rest of the series, the movement flow is so different. Or Ikki fighting Shaka's padawans.

    If you want something you've probably never seen try, 'Rock & Rule'. You can find a couple of versions here on ISsofts (go for the longer one) and it's on Amazon Prime. When I saw it in the early 80's it blew me away. It's not anime nor western style. Cost 8 million to make but only made 30k in theatres as the studio wouldn't spend any money to market it, probably because it didn't target kids and they didn't know how to market a Animated Post-apocalyptic SciFi Rock Musical(ish).

    The motorbike scene from Akira, I'm surprised they didn't talk about how lazy the animation was when the riders fell on the road travelling at 100mph xD Dude, your body wouldn't be rigid especially if you land on a small surface area like your face or shoulders, it'd pull into a ragdoll.
