Warner Home Video has announced that it will be releasing an anthology of short traditional and CG anime films for Halo Legends.
Similar to the Animatrix or Batman: Gotham Knight, this eight-episode anthology will have work from Ghost in the Shell’s Production I.G., Cowboy Bebop’s Bones, and Dragonball Z’s Toei Animation.
The anthology will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 9, 2010.
Sounds cool enough, I'm sure I'll watch it. But I've got to ask, why an anthology? Why couldn't they give us a full feature-length feature? That would have been awesome. And as epic as the games stories are, Halo deserves a feature-length film.
An anthology made sense with Gotham Knights, because we had already seen a few feature-length animated Batman movies.
