I can't imagine anyone picking the new animation. It's reminiscent of the DBZ video game animated intros. Those were fun back then because it was the first time we were getting anything dragonball animated in a while, but for fucks sake we're talking about a theatrical release now. The animation is a hot mess and anyone saying otherwise is kidding themselves.
-The characters look atrocious. The colors have a saturated saturday morning cartoon look that is just disgusting. Remember the psuedo yellow-white hair on super saiyans that looked cool as hell? Now it looks like they used fill paint with a very saturated orange color. Auras look lazy, uninspired, and nowhere near as powerful as they used to do. Hell, the blue "electricity" even looks lame when compared to the original. Power ups, transformations, special attacks, etc - it all had meaning when it was done back then. There was a certain atmosphere that the animation brought.
-Don't even get me started on the devoid of any personality models..
-The fights are lazy and uninspired. Punches, kicks, ki blasts all look pretty pathetic and no amount of half assed 3d-animation is going to save it. Melee combat used to actually matter, you used to be able to feel the impact of the punches. Battle damage looked painful and was way more detailed then a few squiggly lines.
I understand that old DBZ wasn't all jellybeans and orgasms in terms of animation, but to be honest I'd much prefer any of the older movies to this. Toei has taken the teeth out the series, and part of me thinks that this more subdued, cartoonish animation style is partly because they're catering (castrating) the franchise to more of a less serious, child-friendly market. I was really excited for BoG, but was crushed when I realized this is all a cash-grab at this point. The franchise has a history of being milked and the only difference this time is that these new atrocities are being created just for that purpose. Just look at these lazy transformations which haven't been anything but ugly palette swaps. There's no soul in any of it.
