The matrix shorts were great hopefully the Halo anthology is just as good.

Yea the animatrix is very good stuff and that was all stuff that can confuse a person walking down a one way corridor.
Halo is a slightly more simpler affair, so shouldn't tax the old grey cells too much and should make for a good watch whether your a fan or not, cause who we kidding when all you want to see is the explosive action and the Master Chief carve up swarms of alien baddies

and before anyone wants to throw "no I don't want to see just that, I want to see a good plot also" I'm partly joking with above, I also want a good story too

So a preview for "The Babysitter" aired on spike and is now on Youtube.



Went a bit to crouching tiger hidden dragon in that fight scene for my taste, but this short is actually looking a bit better than I expected.

Sometimes you just got to slug it out for some action. The scenes look good and the VAs were good.

Looking good... though I'm really jealous that they can use knives and unarmed combat. We never had that in the games. The animation feels like the 90s though (Which I liked). The covenant VA seemed to be the same as the games itself, so I'm assuming that most of the VAs are the same as the ones used in the games as well.

One thing that is still bugging me... Where's Sarge where you need him? I loved that guy.

Well probably because a Spartan in their armor can probably kill a grunt just as quickly with his armored fist as with a knife.

I don't believe they are. The Marines in the Halo games tend to sound allot different. I think they may have hired guys from the dubbing industry.

Ya I guess so, but where's the fun in it?

And some of the VAs seem to be similar at least, the covenant for once...

Eh, the animation was too cartoony for my taste, just used to all the game graphics and stuff. Haven't seen this type of stuff since eons ago in the 90s. Still, I'm too big a Halo fan so I'll watch it.

Two sets of interviews with the various studios involved. It also reveals the staff for most of the shorts.

Production IG:
Duel - directed by Hiroshi Yamazaki
Homecoming - directed by Koji Sawai

Studio 4C:
Origins - staff unknown
Babysitter - directed by Toshiyuki Sugano

Toei:
Odd One Out - directed by Daisuke Nishio

BONES:
Prototype - directed by Yasushi Muraki, storyboarded by Tomoki Kyoda

Casio Entertainment:
The Package - directed by Shinji Aramaki


The Famitsu interview also hints that Keiji Fujiwara is voicing the main character in Prototype. Looks like Kyoda still hasn't gotten over his Holland fetish.

That's like saying German Sheppard's aren't vertebrates. Helljumpers ARE Marines. They're a specialized unit within the UNSCMC.

This just made me shake my head.

If you like the series enough you may also like the novels (talkin to everyone here). They expand it far beyond and will make you a book nerd if you aren't already.

Big things can come in small packages.

He held his own in a squad of giants so he has to be good.
