Halo Legends, Anime Series


Face-Punching As Foreign Policy

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Microsoft is producing a Halo anime series titled Halo Legends, which will be comprised of seven short films.

The report states five production houses in Japan -- Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio4 C, and Toei Animation -- are handling the physical animation, while Microsoft's creative staff is handling the approval for the visuals and storytelling.

"It's a wildly varied genre, but anime creators do things with weapons and vehicle and technology nobody else does and that marries very well with Halo," said Frank O'Connor, creative director for 343 Industries.

"It's amazing to see some of the new stuff they're introducing and how neatly it maps to the visual aesthetics in the Halo universe."

I'm having too much fun at the 360 kiddies having kittens of rage because it's going to be an anime.
Sounds cool. I'll check it out.
The film titled 'TOEI' is the only film of the seven announced that won't be part of the original Halo canon. O'Conner stated it's meant to be "a fun and silly exploration of Halo universe." O'Conner would later on say that there will be "dark" animes as well, saying they "are not pulling any punches."

I'm reading the comments just for that. Thanks skotti. :)

EDIT: 9 pages in, and I am very much dissapointed. I expected more ignorant dude rage. I was much more entertained by the idiotic anime fans saying how all cartoons suck.

Here's a preview of one of the films, called "The Babysitter"


The grunts remind me of Mega Man.

That was pretty good, the fights were nice, but the story was kinda "been there done that". Still enjoyable though.
