Jesus Christ, Anime Superstar

So here’s yet another Jesus anime project. This one’s kind of interesting because it’s actually going to be an animated version of the 1979 Jesus film, where they’ll use the same audio track and everything. It’s also interesting because Jesus kills 200 pigs in this film clip. While I’m admittedly a bit rusty on my Bible study, I don’t much recall this passage. Maybe the pig slaughter just doesn’t get as much play as the loaves and fishes stuff, although I can’t imagine why.

But this clip is also interesting because this thing looks absolutely nothing like anime whatsoever. These people clearly know anime refers to the popular Japanese animation style, but seem to have forgotten to emulate that style whatsoever. Sorry guys, but unless you have some speedlines in the background or put some huge eyes on big J, it’s just a cartoon.
