Who said CG anime was terrible? Well, we did, but Houseki no Kuni is a strong case that CG can be used to build a compelling and engaging show. In a world where minerals are human-like, Phos and other gem-people must protect the remainder of their kind of the relentless assault of the mooninites. A unique show that strips characters of their sex, passes Lovecraftian horror off as bright fantasy, and makes us rethink our position on using computer graphics for anime production. Also featuring: Happiness, Tomochan is a Girl, Tonikaku Cawaii, and So I’m a Spider, So What?
