Halo Legends

Halo Legends is one of the big things to come out of this years Comic Con. It appears to be a series of short anime films set in the Halo universe. It sounds to me like a similar to Animatrix and Gundam Evolve. I really like this idea, because I find the Halo universe wonderful and solid. But I don't have the time to invest in the games. The books, comics and now these films are a more practical way for people who don't do the electronic gaming to more fully enjoy such a franchise. I hope this leads to a more lengthy animated series.

Microsoft announced at Comic-Con 2009 that it was overseeing production of a series of seven short anime films, together called Halo Legends. Financed by 343 Industries, the animation was created by five Japanese production houses: Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio 4°C, and Toei Animation. Shinji Aramaki, creator and director of Appleseed and Appleseed Ex Machina, serves as the project's creative director. Warner Bros. will distribute Legends on DVD and Blu-ray in early 2010,[70] Six of the stories are officially part of the Halo canon, with the seventh, made by Toei, is intended to be a parody of the universe.
