  1. Personally after watching the trailer it looks pretty hacked together, looks like an “old” Gundam episode rather then a new age Halo video game setting.. Microsofts version of April fools day? I hope the finished product is better then the trailer.

  2. Personally I wondered what Halo merch Microsoft could possibly make now that they have Halo comic books, Halo Mountain Dew, Halo action figures, and finally Halo anime.

    I thought maybe board games.

    Turns out they already have Halo board games.

    I don’t think there’s any way Microsoft could milk the franchise harder at this point.

  3. im pretty sure this whole series will be fail… im probably going to watch it anyhow if its free but in general it looks pretty budget and for Microsoft to go budget and approve somthing like that is weird in its own rights.

  4. I’ll do what they did with the DBZ movie, I’ll watch it so I can say that I’ve seen it. I’m not a Halo fan on any level myself, though.

    And 5 studios? Why didn’t they just go with Bones? I mean, those guys did Fullmetal Alchemist.

  5. I personally don’t like what Microsoft is doing, the drawings look great I must say but apart from that, the Halo franchise’s is going to end up looking like another Avatar series, the story is going to show everything the Japanese way, with little kids holding mighty weapons and their blonde hair blowing in the wind. A few questions that scream in my are: Is Microsoft doing this to cover up for their Halo movie failure? Is Microsoft doing this to milk out some extra cash by using Halo? Does Bungie approve of this?
