Hey guys, I've just seen the not so ridiculous thing for a pitch in an anime series with regards to a toy, the fidget spinner. Bayblade creator, Takao Aoki teamed up with madhouse in animating this series that have 50 EP that will be aired in july(JPN only). I hope this will be another mediocre toy anime series where dragons,turtles,tigers, and other entities collide in a form of this. If you dont believe me check the link for yourself. http://www.animemaru.com/beyblade-creator-announces-new-series-about-competitive-fidget-spinning/ With that regard, would anyone wonder why kendama didn't have a shot in being an anime series rather being in it as a prop/weapon/etc? With art, i know it's very out of proportion to draw a kendama, even realistic or in anime style & it's hard to animate with such complex movement. Japan had there anime scenes that incorporates 3D that makes some hard things to draw a bit possible to manifest in an animated series. So, why does it not pop yet? It's because of the popularity? Construction with story? Realism & sense(logical) basis or a hint of fantasy could've made it a great pitch for an anime? What do you guys think?
