A report on the LA Times states Microsoft has spent $5-10 million producing the Halo 4 live-action series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. The series will be shown tomorrow at Comic Con and release on October 5. It’s a prequel which depicts the first invasion of the Covenant. It will be broken up into five 15-minute segments and eventually released a 90-minute film with extra footage. Shots from the production are through the link.

    They better put that money on more anime series like the previous one, that was a good anime from different anime studios.

    That is really big budget for this sort of thing. Also, the 90 minute version sounds rather intriguing.

    You got to be kidding right? Then again looking at your name I guess you’re not… Wow.. :’) Halo Legends was a big pile of poop. The animation was terrible, it was all still shots where they just panned over, but then again, that’s all anime’s these day’s.

    If this turns out good, maybe an actual Halo movie won’t be needed

    #4 is your opinion and i respect it, i know there is better animes out there, but even still i like it a lot like the batman gotham knight compilation, and i hope they do more, as for all anime´s these day´s, are you sure, check anime like shiki, kanagatari, casshern sins, house of the five leafs,fullmetal brotherhood, the new lupin the third, they are good done anime, and i mean in the graphic and artistic style, but again is your opinion, which i dont agree but i respect it nontheless, good day
    p.s also keep in mind i do watch anime for the 70´s,80´s and early 90´s, therefore still shots are a big part of them, and for an artistic point of view they are done in a great way, and i like them too, heck even berseck one of my all time favorite anime consist of still shots, but i think they are done in a neat way, but well i think is not for everybody i guess
