    The look I think you're referring to is called Cel Shading, it's computer animation used to mimic conventional animation. It's been used mostly in Japan for shows like Zoids and the latest Gundam series, Gundam Seed; it's inexpensive and sharp-looking, but used mostly in shows that are actually toy commercials. It's appropriate here, I guess, seeing as how these shorts are really three minute toy commercials.

    No, not that 3-D, I don't think it's Cel Shading, but I'm no expert on the subject. It's not 3D a la Toy Story and stuff like that, just a bit more 3D than Jack (because that's 2D)

    You'll see what I mean if someone can get the preview up.

    That's not the best example, I'll try and find a better pic.

    I'm not sure, it's kinda hard to explain. It could be, maybe not. I'm not really sure, perhaps someone else who has seen the clip can help me out? DarthTerrious?

    Sorry I've no way of putting the clip on my computer.

    Aren't there any other UK'ers who watch Toonami or have even seen the clip?

    No, I mean can you help me describe what the animation is like? It's more 3D than Jack, but sill Tartakovsky's style.

    lol, I spent two hours round my brother-in-law's watching Toonami yesterday, just trying to see the damn thing... no joy. Then I've got to video it, digitize it, and send it in. But if I can, you know I will. ;)

    I just want to see the Clone Wars!! :_|

    I've been trying to work out a pattern, but I get so bored of watching crap like Ultimate Muscle, the Dragonball series' and the other anime stuff (sorry, I just don't like it) that I can't help but change the channel.

    CN actually does show some good anime, at least here in the US, Loco. ;)

    I spent two hours round my brother-in-law's watching Toonami yesterday, just trying to see the damn thing... no joy. Then I've got to video it, digitize it, and send it in. But if I can, you know I will.

    Well, do it. :p

    I'm trying to work out if there is a pattern to when the commercials are on, Toonami is on in the background almost all the time (apart from when the Simpsons is on)

    If there is a pattern, I'll find it. Then Blackout can go to his brother-in-laws at the time of the advert, then upload it onto the computer.


    TEAMWORK PEOPLE!

    Oh my apologies JMG, should of read your post properly.

    It's on just now - the 3 minute promo thing for every show, the last one in it is Clone Wars.

    So now, thats 6pm and 9pm confirmed.
    If it's on at 12 tonight I will have cracked it! Let's hope the pattern is repeated every day.

    Guff, hopefully you will have cracked it and we will finally see it here soon. w00t!

    Other than Cowboy Bebop, Rurouni Kenshin, and Fooley Cooley, yeah.

    Well, they are beating FC into the ground. But there are others that they show that are good animes. Most of the mech ones are good as well as some others. But we can discuss that in PMs, since this is supposed to be about the Clone Wars animated series. Apologies for getting off track. [face_blush]

    Yup, I saw it at 6 tonight :D :D

    I'm taking a tape round me bro-in-laws tomorrow in the hopes that it'll be on at 6 (yup, I don't have digital :p) It seems to be a 5 minute montage of upcoming stuff, CW is right at the end so I'll have plenty of warning. If I do manage to get it, I'll digitize it and submit it to TFN. I'll also post a version on my own space for you guys in here ;)

    Ooooooh it's good! Ooooooh I'm excited!
    BRING ON THE CLONE WARS!!!

    Reported Viewings:

    6pm
    9pm
    12:30am (yes, it was on after I left here last night).
    12:30pm (on just now)

    The main challenge is checking that they follow this routine.

    Gah, b******* :p it wasn't on at 6.
    There's me with a tape recording, explaining to the sister-in-law: "well, I want to digitize this 1 minute clip and post it on the internet for my friends to watch"
    How sad do I feel? :p Not that I care ;)

    So... any ideas what schedule they could be showing them at tonight? Only I couldn't leave the tape running as they want to watch normal programmes.
