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."
