Hm, well I suppose this isn't the first time this has happened? The only other time I know of is the plagiarized Gundam statue. Afterwards they made it look different (and yellow) but funny fanart came about afterwards haha.

What I'm not liking is that the use of CG (that's what I think they are using in the Chinese video above) is becoming more prevalent now, especially in American television AND movies. I hope to see more actual animated shows/movies than that CG stuff, especially when it looks like low quality CG, which I can't stand...
