Legoshi’s facial expressions were actually inspired by the performance of the original Japanese actor, such as where his eyes would go and how his lips would purse. When the CGI is done right, and there are some that are not done right, you really get the nuance and that’s why people say this is unlike any other anime they’ve seen before.”
