Halo Legends features seven different stories set in the Halo universe, each made by a different studio.

The Babysitter follows the Helljumpers, Orbital Drop Shock Troopers who are sent behind enemy lines to perform an assassination.

The Duel features the tale of an ancient Arbiter who refused to bow down to the Covenant religion. Branded a heretic, he must now face the consequences of his actions.

The Package depicts a group of Spartans, including the Master Chief, who are deployed to infiltrate a Covenant flagship and retrieve a “package” in a secret operation.

Origins shows Master Chief and Cortana stranded following the events of Halo 3, with Cortana summarizing the fall of the Forerunners, the defeat of the Flood, and the rise of humanity as well as the events of the Human-Covenant War.

Homecoming centers on the Spartan Daisy, who reminisces on her past, and the SPARTAN-II project while evacuating UNSC soldiers pinned down by Covenant forces.

Prototype is viewed from the perspective of Marine Sergeant Ghost, who is determined to fight for all he is worth in order to make up for past grievances.

Odd One Out is a non-canon parody of Halo featuring Spartan 1337, who suffers from extremely bad luck.


Halo Legends premiered live in San Francisco at the AMC Metreon in February 2010.

It's really hard to rate this because of the fact that only a select few of the episodes are good compared to the rest, which are garbage.

The Babysitter. This one was okay. Animation was pretty good, action was good, characters actually had a personality.

The Duel. Words can't describe how epically bad this was. Shit animation (looked like I was trying to watch through a fogged-up window), set in some garbage fuedal Japan imitation (totally out of canon), insane amounts of melodrama, characters they WANT you to care about but can't. And the actual "duel" at the end is so retardedly ...

This is my first review, so I’m sorry if you feel it is not as good as other reviewers.

Halo Legends, based on a popular game franchise is quite actually a good adaption of short stories that I rather enjoyed.
This review is based on a person who has played all the games and knows the storyline in which the games told.

"Note to people who have not played the games"
You may not like or understand this anime due to the anime adaption not following the main story line from a to c, its meant for halo fans to be able to understand the universe more and how ...

The foremost obnoxious element of the series is the sheer overpowered, Steven Spielberg amped action. The story is propped up with Halo Lore which will diddle most Halo fans. The art is acceptable, and the sound is okay.

That aside, dont expect to be met by any sort of cutting edge animation, in unique character exploration, or really anything that makes it more than Halo fan service.

While the different aspects of the series aren't dreadful in particular, the lack of uniqueness makes for a show that you cant wait to move on from,or unless you're a Halo nerd, you'll enjoy the novelty of it.
