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
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
