Synopsis

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.

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 read more

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 read more

It's very hard for me to do this review since each short is different and made by a different company but overall these shorts are fantastic (This is coming from the point of view of a long time Halo fan since she was 7 years old)

The Babysitter: 9

Animation was pretty decent and for a short period of time I did get emotionally attached to the characters. There is also a good twist ending that people will enjoy.

The Duel: 9

For me the animation was unique and colorful. I wish they developed more but this was actually for me the saddest out of all of them. The read more

This is difficult to review since these are separate stories, made by different studios, BEFORE YOU WATCH THIS: if you don't like the Halo series please avoid this in any way, if you have only played the games you might find it a little confussing, if you're a fan of the extended universe and like anime (which is kinda obvious if you are here) deffinitely watch it.

The story touches on very good aspects that the expanded universe has touched a lot, the rivalry between ODST and Spartans, the pressures of being a soldier, and other stuff i wont mention because it would be difficult not read more

The director of Ghost in the Shell hasn't directed an anime movie in eight years, but somehow Adult Swim has managed to coax him out of animation retirement for a "micro-series" next year. Let's take a look at his history as a director, and what we can expect from the return of a master.
