GT: "Peter Jackson is about to invade the Halo universe!"
Now this is good stuff, I'm seriously stoked and I don't even like Anime! Anime Halo made by the best studios there are in Anime, MS are so smart.
Another drone joins the ranks. BRRAAAIIINNNNSSSS.
Mooey ccome on man. Halo Legends looks pretty cool .
Really cool trailer, I like how the CGi is mixed in with the art.
Halo Legends reminds me of Animatrix.
"Influential studios that are part of the project include the creators behind some of the most popular and celebrated anime to come from Japan, such as "The Animatrix," "Cowboy Bebop," "Fullmetal Alchemist," "Ghost in the Shell," "Dragon Ball" and more." http://blog.seattlepi.com/d... They got all the big guys creating for this one.
Microsoft are LEET!
The quote is now making more and more sense. (Originally from http://www.nytimes.com/2007... ) Microsoft is turning the Halo franchise to something that will last for a long time. Congrats to Bungie for bringing us this good series!
Star wars? Well i guess that halo movie must be incoming .
I could've sworn I heard a lightsaber sound effect in there when the Halo soldier was about to slice-and-dice that other guy.
Energy sword perhaps ?
Not in the movie sense, but as having a large follow up way. It comes both in more core stuff (novels, prequels, etc), and also some things I don't actually like (Master Chief Cereal!, ok we're not there yet, but I think it will be done some day). I like an expanded universe. For example games like KOTOR are possible because of this.
Man they are so setting Halo up for the Halo movie. You know something else I remembered, Halo 3 had the biggest opening day in entertainment history....bigger than any Star Wars movie, bigger than ANY movie. http://www.outsidethebeltwa... Imagine when they do the massive Halo movie....it's going to be nuts.
"Halo is the Star Wars of this generation" Let me get this out of the way first : I think Halo is a great shooter. I have it installed on my laptop and I often play with friends at my university. What I always hated about Halo is its fanbase who are constantly praising the game as if it was the second coming of christ. This quote up there is the proof. Halo the new Star Wars? Halo didn't reinvent the wheel. It's just a shooter that took some good elements from other games and combined them together. Star Wars had a great and original story and it created a whole new subculture. Halo has the average space marine videogame story and the only subculture it created is the "I just wanna shoot things online and listen to metal, mom" one. Ask people in the streets : "who is Master Chief" or "who are the covenant" etc and no one will know. And if you stay inside the gaming world, there are many games that have a much better and more epic story than Halo : Starcraft, Warcraft, Half-Life, MGS just to name a few.
wow 3 Halos being made at the same time. The Cow is officially milked dry. At least they are taking a different tone with this one.
I dont know what the big deal is that trailer sucked in my opinion... It was all just one big mess and felt more like a teaser than a trailer. A teaser to something i have no interest in. And wtf is halo? Brainwashed goons, nothing in the halo universe was any good other than the first one (which was awesome!), just because everybody plays it and talks about it doesnt meen its good... Yea a lot of people will probably follow this, but mostly americans only...
I love Anime, and i loved what they did with the "Gotham Knight", "Animatrix", and "Chronicles of Riddick". @ MasterFro.... could you elaborate a lil' bit more as to what you are not interested in? If it's not anything Halo, then you are trolling. But if it's because it is Anime, then that's a more reasonable argument. I know, not everyone loves Anime. Hopefully you are not trolling.... I have read all the Novels, including the graphic novel, and have loved the back story. I think it is a great franchise to expand on. This will be a Day 1 purchase for me. I actually think they should make a Anime for all the novels. That would be so awesome. I also think that the fact they have Japanese studios doing it, shows that they have reached a more varied audience. More then just America. @Jolly.... I do agree, i want the original Halo Soundtrack in there. It is so Epic.... LOL, i don't want a re-imagining of it.
But I didn't like the music! I want my monks.
Halo is more than you describe. Its strong backstory rivals the star wars series, and the only reason you think it has the average space marine story is because you dont pay any attention to the details. EVen if you still think is a basic humans vs aliens story, you have to admit it does it very well. But its more than that. They way to story ends up being more about an ancient parasite and a series of ancient weapons rather than being about an actual human-alien war was a large twist in the first game, and the details and depth of this story further expanded in the two sequels, while the backstory only became stronger with the growing number of novels and comics, just like Star Wars. Add in the fact that Halo has a music score that can stand up to a John Williams score, and you have something very special on your hands. Halo may be hugely popular, but it has a very good reason too. They are not milking the franchise, because all of these spin-offs and extra things they release are of good quality that were made with thought and consideration.
Awesome! The Halo anime. I can't wait for this. Looks badass just like Dead Space Downfall. Maybe this will bring more appeal to Halo in the japan market.
BUT CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT THE HELL THIS IS? Its a game? Its a movie? Its a game with Anime cutscenes? I honestly have no idea where this came from.
Anyone even entertaining the notion that Halo is remotely comparable to Star Wars in terms of fan following is severely deluded. Halo is obviously a great franchise with a huge following but it simply isn't in the same universe as a franchise like Star Wars.
so peter jackson big huge halo project is some crappy cartoon and they are comparing this to star wars what a joke
i honestly didnt really like the trailer... and im a big fan of halo....it did not seem very halo like...but its just a trailer.
Looked great until near the end when I saw a blonde kid with stupid big eyes. I want HALO, not Pokemon!
I'm sorry but this is horrible. I've read all the books, played all the games and this has nothing of the Halo spirit! This looks more like Pokemon or Dragon Ball Z or something.
Some people who made dragon ball are making this .
cant wait to watch this on bluray lol
better take a seat. It might be a looong wait (the Blu ray release, not the actual DVD release).
ewwwww wtf halo doesnt suit anime at all. doesnt feel at all like halo. childish.
Halo could completely fall into the Anime Universe. Have you ever watched "Haloid". If you haven't, then here's a link: http://www.gametrailers.com... I think that was awesome what he did with that. I could totally see one of the Spartans kicking some A$$, like in "Haloid". Plus, most people don't realize that there was more then one Spartan. This will help to expose other Halo fans to the Halo Universe.
that most of it was darker and grittier. There is one episode that is not cannon and that's the one that looks like pokemon or something. I'll reserve judgment until I see an actual episode. It could be very, very good. And anyone saying Halo is nothing more than a crappy marine vs aliens story has never bothered to learn some of the back story. The story for this game rivals anything ever made and definitely outdoes anything that was originally a game and not a movie.
I hope they let you watch it for free on XBL. It could be on XBL Primetime like a TV show with ads.
Are you kidding? MS give this away for free? Free and MS don't belong in the same sentence. This is their biggest wh0re and no way does baby work for free! She is on her back and charging! However they will spam you with 15sec teasers for the next 4 months and those will probably be free.
yeah Halo will not translate well into anime, halo is too western. not once did i ever think when i was playing the games and reading the books that halo could be an anime.
anyone can see that the whole point of making a halo anime is to get it more popular in japan to try and move more 360's.....which won't work, because japanese don't watch 'western anime'
This isn't western anime. Did you even bother watching the trailer? Look at the companies who are making it.
Halo anime? Ultra stereotypical anime girls? Master Chief becoming some kind of Naruto with special punching techniques? um...
Someone forgot to tell them Halo isnt Japanese. Why does it have to be anime? God, this is going to be horrible.
it's the only idea they haven't tried to milk yet.
Look at the "Gotham Knight". What's not more American then Batman, well besides Superman.... LOL, but I thought "Gotham Knight" was great.... That's not including my bias towards Anime, as you can probably tell from my Avatar.... But, I thought the Halo Universe was great, as i said before, i have all the books, and have read them all. I can totally see an animated series as the next step. Check out one of my earlier posts. I added the "Haloid" video to the video comment. I thought that was great.
Just Saw it at GT, was pretty good, just like what they did with The Matrix and DarkKnight, I hope it comes out in Blu-ray.
That'd be pretty hilarious
But then again does any movie have a musical score that can touch Starwars - imo definetely not. And i have never played a video game that has music that comes close to the brilliance of Halo's - gets your heart going and adrenalline pumping all at once. So they do both have something alike.
hahahaha .. haha. oh man. but seriously. this sucks. CG movie only please. (where was the kickass Halo music??)
It was in there but mixed - seriously you couldnt miss some of the more well known bits starting up?
jeezus christ. Looks ridiculous.
What? is not Killzone? oh too bad maybe when they sell around 3 million? well maybe... you know whats ridiculous? words like xbots, chatbots, sony droids, drones that my friend is ridiculous.
i'm a huge halo fan but i didn't like this. The CGI looked pretty sweet but the rest was very non-halo. DBZ with master chief and space bikes.
What does this have to do with Peter jackson ? Peter jackson is producing a game, these are anime's.
Halo + Anime= GAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Is this anime..or is it CGI? I saw at least two different things in there..
Remember the "Animatrix" and the "Gotham Knight". It's kinda like those.
6 different short films. Some are 3d, some are 2d.
So is this the movie Peter Jackson was working on? Halo+Anime= bad idea! Cuz from what I see in the trailer, looks like another Robot/Mech anime (goodness as I hate those sh...) And what's up with the underline titles? Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Metroid Other M had it. Now this.
but this is looking really lame, not going to lie about it. I like Halo and everything but this is just retarded looking. However it does kinda remind me of Titan AE wich was really good, but it wasn't all japanese anime like.
This is horrible from my perspective. I am not a fan of anime at all. Now that said...this could be could for MS in Japan, assuming its good anime. Can you call anime good? lol
"Can you call anime good? lol" I'm not a fan of anime, but they can be amazing. Halo, however, was a strange choice for an anime. Pure CGI would've suited it more, IMO.
Wow and who said they werent milking halo do you need more proof what a horrible idea sad day for anime.
Halo is always in the gaming headlines (seriously what other franchise can boast this)so i guess people really do like it - average doesn't bring you that Anything that has such a devoted and large following will of course always have it's haters or just those figuring it's only as good as the next thing - ignorance basically I regularly play the Halo games because they are still such countless fun Halo has scripting within an already well told story and with everything so meticulously realised everywhere else, you have to have a very good reason not to like it I'm not very much into Anime or perhaps i should rather say how japanese story is dramatically told, but i guess what with other studios working on episodes too, i should like some of this work.I may even be suprised and like the Japanese episodes too
Why so threatened, Sanad? My opinion is that it is Halo power ranger anime. An extremely ludicrous mixture.
Well i don't feel threatened is just obvious this Anime looks pretty good, my point is that you PS3 fanboys just like what Sony makes and don't accept nothing else.
anime halo = awful. That just looked so disappointing. I would have much rather seen some nice cgi stuff. But anime in the halo universe seems so corny and stupid imo.
Halo and anime style artwork. dont think it will be good
http://www.blu-ray.com/news... For some reason this makes me giggle.
Even funnier that the best quality version will only be able to be played on the PS3 console. Unless you have a stand alone BR player. The 360 will have the worst version.. lol Not that I would spend a dime on this.
"This isn't western anime. Did you even bother watching the trailer? Look at the companies who are making it." i never said it was western anime, i said halo is too western to be an anime. the japanese don't understand western culture
Kigmal was addressing DChalfont. you probably didn't see him because he only has one bubble. But he wasn't addressing you.
