Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha mocked for bad animation

We've previously talked about the bad reputation of computer animation (CGI) within the anime industry, and while there are extremely good works that make use of this animation technique, unfortunately there are more that end up being embarrassed by poor execution.

And that's precisely what happened recently with the second season of "Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha (The Misfit of Demon King Academy)," as its most recent episode drew a variety of teasing on social media for a segment featuring dragons made with CGI animation.

The dragon models are extremely rigid and stand out too much from the other two-dimensional models, which makes them even more eye-catching. In addition, the movements are very robotic and the movement pattern is quite noticeable with fairly short cycles. All of this together led to the scene trending and attracting a multitude of negative comments.

It is worth noting that this series is being produced by SILVER LINK studios, under the production of Aniplex. Interestingly, the second season of "Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha" went through a variety of suspensions due to production issues, but even that extra time wasn't enough to improve the final quality.

Anyway, why don't we check out some of the comments?

  • "It's sad that a character as great as Anos is caught up in this shitty series."
  • "Aniplex showing that it's in complete decline."
  • "This is maybe the worst animation I've seen since KamiKatsu."
  • "What the fuck is this shitty DreamWorks animation from 2000?"
  • "There's no way this could have made it into post-production."
  • "At least Yozakura Family looks good and she's also from SILVER LINK, you can tell they have priorities."
  • "It's still better than Arifureta's CGI."
  • "The first season is still one of my favorite shows of all time, this is pretty sad to watch."
  • "I'd like to see the comparison with the original manga, it must be crazy."
  • "Has the industry given up on CGI animation yet?"
  • "Oh my god, is this a Chainsaw Man promo video?"
  • "Are you really telling me that this was approved by the principal?"
  • "It's impressive that we've come to a second season with this, finally SILVER LINK ran out of budget."
  • "Of course they're wrong. Anos is facing horrific creatures, abominations from another dimension, and his ugliness in the animation is to reflect this kind of appearance. no, it's just fucking animation."
