The characters' eyes should have been bigger. They already have the goldfish appearance, but they need the eyes to be just a tad bigger so that they look toootally innocent and cute.

;) j/k. Don't mind me, I've never been one for anime...

Oh great... a prolonged cut screen for a futuristic video game. ;)

WHAT? Are thos cel-shaded characters I see?

I'm sorry, but if you're going to make an animated film, it should not involve cel-shading at all. Unless its for a video game, I'm not a big fan of this style. They should have either gone with completely hand-drawn or CG characters. Not this CG meant to look hand-drawn stuff.

Sorry, I just had to give my 2 cents.

Actually, I'm rather intrigued by cel-shading... Environment interactions are usually much better (e.g. walking on rocky terrain...) and mechanical objects are mucho easier (go Iron Giant!) :D Drawbacks are sometimes human characters don't have the same flexibility and just... look... 3d. :(

Well, to an extent cel-shading is fine. I mean, if its used in a limited context like in Iron Giant or Futurama, I have no problem.

But this film has every character cel-shaded. Plus, I don't think its particularly good cel-shading. :(
