Studio Ghibli, is releasing a TV series based on a Swedish fantasy book titled, Ronia the Robber's Daughter, or Sanzoku no Musume Ronja, in Japanese. The series is set to air next month during the Fall TV season. Unfortunately, as you can tell from the teaser trailer above, the animation is not going to be Ghibli's usual stunning 2D work, but rather mediocre cel shaded 3D animation, which is becoming all the more common. Hopefully the actual series will look better than this teaser, because a few 3D animated anime like Knights of Sidonia and Nobunaga Concerto have actually been very good. Animation aside, maybe Sanzoku no Musume Ronja will actually be good. Regardless, I intend to watch and review it along with the other series coming out this Fall. What do you think of the teaser and Ghibli making a TV series? Please comment below and let me know, and also check back tomorrow for my review of Noragami.
