It's not meant to be photoreal. It's meant to be human-like. Characters
without squashy-stretchy movements, but move human-like unlike the
incredibly "I'm a human ballet dancer/stage actor" Anastasia which is TOO
exaggerated...GITS was right on the dot.

I agree with Alfred here. I'm a "smart" guy or at least that's what people
tell me. Therefore, I can figure out many things for myself. I'm not some
10 year old kid which is what most western movies are all about. Perhaps
that's why hardcore movie goers in the western world HATE mainstream
movies; it's all too spoonfed. When you talk to the common everyday street
walker, they can't tell the difference between Anime or western animation
which is really sort of sad. In fact, they believe that all the games from
Japan are done in america. Now THAT'S insulting.
