Watch Production I.G.’s Halo Anime

By Spencer . September 20, 2009 . 5:40pm

Ghost in the Shell studio Production I.G., Bones, Toei, and Casio Entertainment are making a Halo anime that doesn’t look much like the Halo games. Here’s Spike TV’s preview of Halo Legends.



Will this sell Halo in Japan? Halo 3: ODST comes out here, there, and all over the world this week.

  • This is awesome.

    So this would be like Batman Gotham Knight composed of several shorts done by different studios right? That was interesting but kind of a weird Jpn take on Batman (in several styles..)

    So this will be shown on cable and sold/rented on Live marketplace first before being released on DVD/Blu-ray? When will this come out? Never played Halo, but I’m interested in learning about its universe.

    No comment…

    Whoa, this looks awesome!

  • eliel

    sweet i liked what i saw so far!!! so when is it gona be release on dvd/blue ray or on Tv?

  • A preview that just ends?

    Bad PR.

    Other than that. Why the super human? I thought Spartans were awesome soldiers, not super humans that could fight anyone barehanded.

    As for probability of watching it when it is released? 50/50 with this.

      they are the best genetics had to offer at the time, trained from the age of 6 and later enhanced by technology in their bodies.

      superhuman? definitely! able to go one on one with a brute like in the toon? can’t be hasn’t really happened yet that i know of. spartans are almost even matches with elites and one has even danced with hunters. so we’ll see since is is all official lore.

      • I know. I was just surprised to see that the Spartan didn´t fly of into the sky to deliver a drop kick…

        That was the feeling I got.

        I just wonder how this will turn out. Starting to get sleepy as well so my mind is getting a bit nonfunctional.

      @ manga:

      Sounds like you’re talking about MGS: Snake was an awesome soldier, but he wasn’t invincible. Spartans are a little bit of both.

      • Oh. Didn´t know Snake was that good. Never played MGS.

  • I’ll most likely watch it more because it’s Production I.G. than because it’s Halo…

    • Lol I only played the first game, but I’ll most likely watch it for the same reason; I’m a Production I.G fan.

    Thanks Japan for ruining Halo, why may you ask?

    people acting corny: check (ex: the lunch scene where the guy tries to run over like a 5yr old kid)
    take a shooter game and let everybody fight as hand combat with no guns: check

    I don’t know if it’s some wierd no violence thing, but yet he bunches a character in the eye and blood comes out, but he can’t shoot somebody with a laser?

    If that’s the case, sounds arse backwards to me.

    look at all the crap you will never do in any game!
