Hey, do you remember the VCR? Do you remember the Daicon IV intro video? Do you remember Megumi Hayashibara's incredible vocal range?
Anime Expo has produced their final short- "Cassette Girl", and it's a neat homage to a lot of retro gear and classic series:
It's also done entirely via 3d CG animation. I think they still have a ways to go, but it does get fairly close to cel style. Personally I worry about the increasing use of 3d CG in anime, but this gives me hope that it can be done in a way that works with, not against, the core elements I love in the look and feel.
Anyways, it's under ten minutes, so give it a look. Also, there's some great design work at the bottom. If you're interested in character design, background work and layouts, this will be helpful for you.
