Appleseed XIII (2011)

Starting a new thread for this:

Appleseed XIII (アップルシード XIII)

Former thread: http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=63282





From ANN:
Appleseed XIII is a new retelling of Masamune Shirow's Appleseed future paramilitary manga, separate from Kazuyoshi Katayama's previous original video anime and Shinji Aramaki's two computer-animated movies. This latest adaptation will be composed of 13 22-minute direct-to-video CG anime episodes, plus two feature-length compilation films of the episodes.

Plot:
In the wake of the destruction of a worldwide non-nuclear war, the city Olympus has become the control center of the world. Run by Bioroids (cloned humans made from only the best DNA), it is defended from terrorists by special military forces. Among these are former LAPD SWAT member Deunan Knute and her multipurpose cyborg partner Briareos. They face a challenge from the Human Liberation Front and its terrorist underbelly the Argonauts. The leader of this group, Al Ceides, supposedly died 20 years ago in an attack on Poseidon, but now his shadow emerges once again.

Well yeah, it's a whole new project.

Shame to hear this won't be airing in April as it was originally planned, though i can wait an extra few months for it. Loving what we see in the trailer.

I was hoping there would be a new trailer, as some of the shots in the first one look unfinished and murky. I still have hope for the series seeing as Production IG never really seems to disappoint.

Is it just me, or does that trailer look like it has an increased framerate?

Shouldn't this be in "Current Series"?

Though, I don't think anyone has indicated they are going to sub this (first episode has been out almost a week now, though it's a really crappy raw) , so it'd probably just wither away and die over there anyways.

maybe they waiting for blu-ray disc release , because it's seem pointless to sub crappy raw and made people to not bother to download it

I hope that's the case that they are just waiting for the first bd, I'd really like to see this so I hope some sub group picks it up.

As a fan of the manga, I suspect people are just waiting to see if the show is any good or not before downloading it. Haruhi knows we have been disappointed too many times already.
