According to the tweet of Anime!Anime! representative, IG Port has announced cancellation of Production I.G's new anime project "Titan Rain" at the general meeting of stockholders. Storm Lion, the collaborator in Singapore, will take the responsibility for the loss caused by the cancellation. IG Port has already initiated another project with Singaporean companies.

Titan Rain official website

At the meeting, the president of Production I.G Ishikawa Mitsuhisa explained the reason for the deficit in the video production section that the elongation and the postponement of Higashi no Eden movies have augmented the expense, which had exceeded the budget.

Production I.G opened a pizza restaurant in their new building. Ishikawa said it's been successful so far.

Doesn't look like anything I'd care about anyway, but it's sad to hear it's canceled since I'm sure lots of people were looking forward to it.

Probably a shame, I guess? I wasn't even aware of this project, but Production I.G usually makes good stuff.

Pizza is always good news, though.

Well this sucks since Production I.G. produces a lot of things I really like, hate seeing things get canceled. The pizza news was random yet also pretty funny and I guess it's good, it shows that at least one thing has gone well for them.

The anime production company is required to remind you, that you will be pissed. And then there will be pizza.

I guess this will mean that there won't be any Pizza Hut adverts in Production I.G anime, then. *adds to notes for future FAL seasons*

Oh, and no Titan Rain either. I feel sorry for the people who were waiting for it.

I'd rather have Higashi no Eden eating the budget than a low-profile anime :) By the way, Bungaku Shoujo is bad, really bad unfortunately...

They won't. Their pizza restaurant is doing well after all.

Good luck next time.

Please take your hate elsewhere.

As for the pizza news, it's loosely related. Basically they went over the budget with Eden, but since their new side-business is going well we shouldn't worry about them dying anytime soon.

I lol'd at the pizza news. But it's sad to know they cancel it because the budget with Eden. Though Eden is really awesome so it's alright.. i guess.

At least, they survive with the pizza business.

Yum. Maybe if it's doing well, they should convert to pizza-making. Might actually be profitable. lol

'Tis a shame. I didn't know of the anime, but it's a great animation studio. I'm looking forward to Production I.G's next project after Bungaku Shoujo, whatever it might be.

Also, pizza restaurant news was random.

You still watch shows like that. If you don't like them, don't watch them. But don't complain. Also, there is at least 1 anime that don't have "stupid chibi crap or shit tsundere and isn't set in bloody high school" every season, and if you can't find them, it's your own fault.

I see the news team translated the Japanese into yet another language I don't understand. >_>;

What date are we currently on on the "Endless Eight bitching tour" anyway?
