    what do think of the new halo legends anime. i personally think it looks great.

    on a sidenote there are individual posters for the shorts so there is a fair idea of what the characters will be like

    It looks like a lot of it won't fit within the official canonical timeline.

    I need to reserve judgement until I see an episode or two.

    I'll give it a chance. This may be as close as we'll ever get to a Halo movie.

    I don't see how we can tell that from six or so odd posters.

    Is that a freakin' Drinol?

    Hmm... I didn't know about this. Looks interesting.
    Any idea when it's supposed to be coming out?
    Will it be straight to DVD type of a thing or will it be on TV?
    I hope it's rated MA.

    Why does the Master Chief have "1337" written on him? Is it meant to be "leet" written in leet speak?

    Also, anyone notice that right next to Microsoft is a logo for "343 Industries"? 343 was the number for that insane floating eyeball from the first game; "343 Guilty Spark". Hmmm...

    Otherwise, looks pretty nice, although the pic of the Master Chief with all the extra markings on him kinda turns me off. A bad-ass like him doesn't need crap like that!

    I wonder if people realize that's probably not the Chief in the 1337 armor.

    I'm not optimistic, the 4th and 6th posters especially leave me with the impression of anime corniness. But they're only posters, not stills, and I like the CGI one. (but why is the Arbiter in a stripped shirt in the 3rd one?)


    Though I'm not sure I'd be interested regardless. I'm not that big into Halo after the third game.

    2nd and 4th poster are impossible. By that time, John 117 was the only surviving Spartan II. I gauge the timeline by the armor he's wearing, which is the Mjolnir Mark VI, which was introduced between the 1st and 2nd game. The armor being worn by the other characters is a slight variation of the Mark VI, and only Spartans could wear it. But there were no other Spartans to wear it because they were all dead before Combat Evolved.

    It's not a striped shirt. It's more like a kimono.

    The only non-canon one is Odd one out. All the rest are canon.

    And 343 Industries isn't a coincidence, it's pretty much the new MS owned Halo studio.

    Not entirely, there've been tons of Spartans fleshed out since then in the comics and books. Most of which are either still alive or are MIA. And there's always the possibility of the Spartan III's, which we know at least several batches were made-

    -Nicole is a stretch by any means when trying to talk about her, but I love her to death
    -Gray Team is MIA at that point in the canon
    -Black Team, whatever their reason for not being included previously was. Based on released material, Black Team had access to Mark VI suits BEFORE Combat evolved
    -Fred, Linda, and Will all saw action on Earth in Mark VI armor
    -Kelly wore Mark V in Onyx because she wasn't with the above three during their incursion on Earth
    -Maria was alive as of the graphic novel to test Mark VI for the Chief and others before they arrived
    -Kurt was presumed dead for a long time and secretly reassigned to Onyx and the Spartan III's
    -Any OTHER number of Spartan III's that could've been produced that did not die
    -The other Spartan II's that were serving on Reach under Fred's command while Halo 1 took place that did not die until later (either later on during the attack on Reach, or during First Strike)

    This completely downplays the significance and mystique of John 117; thus, to me, all the new Spartans are haphazard inventions meant for little more than making more money for the authors/Bungie/whoever. Sure, they may fit in canon, but how solid and relevant do they really feel?

    Also, I'm not clear on how/when the Spartan IIIs came about.

    in the novel ghosts of onyx they were ackersons (cheap) rival project to dr halsey's spartan II's, basically they were disposible warriors made up of vengeful orphans that escaped glassed worlds.

    I think it looks stupid personally. And I even like the occasional anime.
