I highly recommend Thunderbolt Fantasy for multi reasons.
I. It is mixture of live puppet action and CGI graphics. This is simply amazing, even the fight scenes and other scenes, some of it may be bit 'eh,' but overall, the performance is mind blowing for 24 or so min films. Plus, there are exploding puppets. >.>
II. Great story base in ancient China mythology.
III. A good balance of action and conversation. Fight scenes are entertaining through later episodes(especially near end of fourth episode.)
Only semi-con is lips don't move; but then again, how can they? They are puppets, you don't even see the strings when they use them and I am assuming they are probably action figure size standard puppets too, though with close ups and whatnot is hard to tell as well and the detail they put into the designs, my god.
Great anime, guess it could still be label as 'anime,' not sure what to really label it. Personally, one of the best so far in this season lineup; that and Re:Zero is hard to really choose from.
