Sue, I'd like that, but for only a limited amount! Not everything looks good in 3D

Gee, i'd kinda say that's a tough call. I dont think it'd work too well with traditional anime, then again ive never tried it before. I've seen two movies in 3D, one of which being live and literally made for the effect and the other being the tintin movie.
Id say they make a sample or existing anime and do a 3-D test there and see the reception on that

REPOST THIS: (taken from Hifsa- hope you don't mind)
"Guys, if you want you can re-post this too...And I apologise in advance if anyone gets hurt by this...
These days I've been hearing alot that TheO is getting boring and it really saddens me that people are thinking like that...Sure, old members are not coming online much but the news members are really active...Its really not that the website itself is getting boring, its we who're making it boring by not posting anything! I post alot, so my days are going fine here. I even get more comments than I can reply to but there are some members who log in after a long time and complain that theO is boring, then thats not fair! They should explore the website...there are so many great worlds about music, stories, RPing and personal worlds too! And lets not forget the quizzes and fan comics! And fanart section just never sleeps...So, I think that we should not take TheO for granted and participate more, comment more and PM more too..."

Frankly, I enjoy the art styles and animation quality of the animes I'm watching, and I don't really care for change. Also, I've never been crazy about 3-D in general, so no, unless I really liked the series, I don't think I'd watch any of the animes I like now in 3-D.

I would honestly love to try this, but it sounds like it would have many ups and downs. Sometimes i think it would ruin the whole effect of most hand drawn animes. However, games like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts, I would absolutely LOVE seeing these games in three-D
Depends on the quality of the 3D, if you mean currant 3D then no.

yes i would love to watch anime in 3d the combat the engaging' side may be even in 4d or 5d too

It depends. If you need 3-d glasses, that would suck for the people who need glasses. Without, i wouldnt have any objections, but it might harm your eyes. though, id like to try watching anime in 3-d!
in short time, Nintendo will release Flipnote Studio 3D, animations will be in a 3d format now. i am taking advantage of this and am planning my own anime series. it will in fact be made in 3D. i wouldn't like the anime style shown in the image but for those of you who know what flipnote is like, you'll understand what i'm talking about

I'm not a huge fan of 3D films anyway, so I think I'd prefer to stick with the non 3D stuff. Even with my 3DS I rarely use that feature XD my eyes get tired.
However, if a film was designed to work with 3D then maybe it would be fun. I just don't like how most films have a 3D option when it isn't really needed. I agree that a SnK 3D adaptation would be rather fun!

I think that as long as the animation was designed (or redesigned) for a 3D format, I would give any anime a try in 3D. I think it would be an interesting experience

haha! Glad I'm not the only one disgruntled about the double glasses xD

Maybe I would. I think the newer Evangelion films could work in 3D. However, I'd like to see the animators and directors push the format into different directions: instead of giving us Wow!-visuals alone (it's coming right at us!), how about using it as another approach to storytelling, as another way to convey meaning via a "different channel", as it were.
I don't think that the visual aspects should always be cleanly divorced from the storyline itself, as the Matrix trilogy recognized (the fight on the staircase in the 2nd film was poetry in motion). Blood: The Last Vampire, too, was another work that expressed itself heavily through its visuals (which is rarely noticed). I also recall those scenes in The End of Evangelion which probably come close as is sanely possible in making the viewer experience a complete erasure and collapse of the psyche.
In some cases, I think a different approach to 3D would add something else to the overall experience, thus adding something intuitively meaningful to the story itself. In sum, I'd prefer it if the anime called for it in a way where it wasn't used almost like a prop, an afterthought.

Let me expound on my original post that simply said the only anime I would watch in 3-D is Kill la Kill. 3-D was meant to enhance the viewing experience, never the story or characters. There are VERY rare circumstances where 3-D affect the whole work. This is due to the story, and how 3-D directly affects how we view the story. Of these rare works, I have seen only one. That was Hugo, which won five Oscars for technical achievements and was nominated for a Best Picture award.
So, of the anime I have seen, which as a whole are visual masterpieces? Very, very few. First, the entire Hiroyuki Imaishi catalogue (Gurren Lagann, Dead Leaves, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, the aforementioned Kill la Kill). His entire career is built on creating the most impressive visual works he can bring to life, all on a tight budget. Secondly, some Madhouse projects. That includes Redline, the most visually amazing animated work I have ever seen. Others thrown in should include a large majority of what Mamoru Hosoda, Satoshi Kon, and Masaaki Yuasa did with Madhouse, as each of these directors have visually unique styles that no other director possesses. Of this group only The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Tokyo Godfathers, Perfect Blue, and The Tatami Galaxy don't belong as I believe 3-D would take away from the tone the works try to set. On the topic on Madhouse, who wouldn't want to see the bullet scene from Highschool of the Dead in 3-D? You know the one. Heck, throw in Tetsuro Araki's whole anthology minus Death Note (once again story needs no additives), as he knows how to direct action well *cough* Attack on Titan *cough*. I'd list more but this has gone on too long.
In conclusion, anime is a visual artform. If your visuals are spectacular, why not show just how good they are? 3-D should only be used if the visuals, story, and tone call for it. Could any of these works improve both story and visuals through 3-D? I think of only two. Paprika and The Animatrix, as both call for immersion in both animation and story. I think as technology gets better, we'll being to see the true nature of 3-D, and how it can build a work into an total immersion experience. We're not there just yet, but one can dream.

I don't know, it depends.
I don't have weird symptoms when I see things in 3D, and I would like to see a few anime in 3D. However, there are some that I DEFINATELY would not want to see in 3D.
Otakuite++ | Posted 10/04/13 | Reply
normal format! Do you have any idea how silly it is to wear a pair of seeing glasses with a pair of 3d glasses on top of those!? and yeah...that's me everytime I go to 3d movies...
Senior Otaku+ | Posted 10/04/13 | Reply
although 3D would DEFINITELY be interesting- i'd rather stick to the original format. Idk... it just seems more... natural?
Otaku Eternal | Posted 10/04/13 | Reply
I always stick to normal format. 3D format only makes theatrical access to movies more expensive, especially for viewers planning to watch them on non-matinee days. I only watch 3D if normal format isn't available in convenient locations.
Grand Otaku | Posted 10/04/13 | Reply
Well, I would like to see a 3D Snk, it would be an interesting experience!
I don't know how is it to watch anime in 3D, I think I can say I'd give it a try. If it's a series I've been looking forward to, then I guess no, since I may regret not watching it in the normal format (still, I'd try a 3D SnK >w<). So I'll try it with a completely new series to me. Though an action/shounen type, I wouldn't watch other anime genres in 3D other than that.
And, congratulations to Keba Si Rota （＾_＾）.

It depends on the art style I think. Normal anime, I'd watch in 2-D. (Definitely Miyazaki movies) If it had more computer generated artwork, I'd watch it in in 3-D.
No. I like my anime 2D, yeah flat. I already hate it when they use cheap and obvious CG imagine if it were 3D. Blaugh. It would ruin the concept.
I would totally watch it in 3D. That is if it's good 3D (I've seen some movies out there that had bad 3D - every time had to refocus my eyes on the part of the image that was sharp).
I might miss the old style though, but just because I'd be absolutely curious on how an anime wouuld look like if it was 3d, I would go. :D

Just imagine if you were watching Attack on Titan and suddenly the squads are zooming out of the screen on their 3D maneuver gear, or a titan's fist comes at your face?
Now that would be flippin' awesome.
I highly doubt anime would work the same way the 3D does on film with real people, unfortunately.

While 3D could work for some anime, I don't really think there's much I'd want to see in 3D. Besides, for some reason, I feel like things are a little harder for me to follow in 3D movies, like I'm not as engrossed, engaged, or focused as I could be... maybe that sounds weird?
Also, congrats, Keba! :D

Just no overkill and I guess 3D would be okie doke.

Holy bleep! I was wondering why my account was different. Thank you so much for the upgrade!
Anyway, to answer the question, I don't like 3-D movies. They make me dizzy. And even then, some movies make me dizzy in just the regular format (*cough*LOTR*cough*). So no 3-D for me. Besides, aren't those movies more expensive?
Call it karma. Call it luck. Me, I just don't give a... BOUNCE!

There's only one big new anime release I'd watch in 3-D.
Kill la Kill. Why yes, minds would be imploded like it's Dead Leaves all over again.
