Default Re: Halo anime series preview

I'm not sure if anyone knows what Halo Legends' going to be about.

Quote:
The BONES, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio 4C, and Toei Animation anime studios are animating Halo Legends, a DVD anthology of seven short films based on Microsoft Studios' Halo game franchise. Microsoft's creative staff is approving the visuals and storytelling. Three of the creative directors are Frank O'Connor of Microsoft's 343 Industries, Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed), and Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, The Sky Crawlers). J-Spec Pictures' Joseph Chou (Appleseed) is producing.

Aramaki's short will cover the history of the Spartan warrior class from the games. Studio 4C will animate two 30-minute shorts about "the entire 100,000 year history of the Halo universe." Toei's short "is outside of the official canon and pokes fun at some of the game's characters."

Warner Brothers will release the anthology on DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and digital distribution in early 2010.
This is going to be awesome.

ahh, so not a television series..but simular to the animatrix, it will be mini episodes by indavidual studios. Would explain the inconsistent animation quality.

Bones, 4C, and I. G. are top notch studios.. I imagin they will have some pretty sweet shorts.

It's just because it can't be implemented in a meaningful way in teh games, but in the novel their training, moves and tactics is described in detail. They are both powerful and extremely agile. ALL Spartans move like that. Awesomesauce!!
