    OK, I found this much more interesting than the just announced WoW movie adaptation in the PC games forum...

    YUM YUM...

    And TOEI is evidently making a Japanese "comedy" anime parody of Halo. Cool stuff.

    I loved GITS, Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist and Dragon Ball series, so looking forward to see what they do with Halo.

    I'm so stoked about it myself. The Halo Waypoint thing sounds really cool!

    Could Halo Legends on Bluray be one reason why the new Xbox 360+ rumors with Bluray might be legit? Would be kinda sad for Microsoft to release an exlcusive franchise on a disc format that only their competitor has the ability to play.

    I'd imagine it'll be available on DVD also, it'd be weird if it was Blu-Ray only.

    Yeah, I guess go. Just something about Halo on disc format that they don't support seems somewhat wrong. ;)

    For me it isn't about Halo, it's about the animation companies doing the shorts.

    For example I'm not at all interested in a rumored Halo movie although I'd probably end up seeing it just because I like Sci-Fi.

    Then it is in the wrong forum. Should we have threads on Halo books and Halo slurpees too? :wink:

    I put it here since the only similar thread is in PC games for the WoW movie. And I'm much more interested in this than a WoW movie.

    Figured other's might like it also, but...shrug. If mods felt it was out of place, I'm sure they would have relocated it.

    Mod : Indeed we would!

    Halo Legends I'm incredibly hyped for as I love Anime and they have some legendary teams working on some of the shorts.

    Halo Waypoint seems interesting but I'm wondering if they'll be able to provide new material week after week for an extended period of time. It doesn't "sound" like it's a short time think (IE - For Holiday '09), but something that will be there longterm. I just wonder if they'll be able to keep new stuff coming in to sate the Halo fans out there.

    Regards,

    This looks a bit silly to me, I don't like the Japanese take on Halo art. Why didn't they just stick to the art style the Halo comics used?

    It's strange that on one hand you have the ultra-realistic take on the universe with the live action ads and the Halo Wars cinematics and on the other hand you have cheesy, melodramatic 80s style Japanese animation.

    It's Anime by Japanese animation studio's you were expecting something other than Anime inspired visuals? I'd imagine they would have hit up Pixar or any other American/European animation studios if they were going for the hyper-realistic look.

    That said, some of the teaser shots for these shorts range from REALLY silly (TOEI) to 3D CG animation (not sure which studio) to Fullmetal Alchemist/Cowboy Bepop style. It's all over the place.
