Even though I'm not a big fan of sci-fi/military anime, I might check this out.
I mean, it's Production I.G. <3

sorry for so many edits.

1. Production I.G is credited as a contract studio (制作協力). The main studio is Jinnis Animation Studio, who produced Fireball. The main staff are from I.G. So it's not wrong to call it their work.

2. It's not confirmed that this series will be aired on TV. The announcement only says "展開 release" in Spring 2011.

Interesting choice of director.

Hamana Takayuki going to be doing a Shimbou for the 5-6 weeks that this overlaps with Moshidora.

As for the series itself, I might as well take a look at it just because the past few seasons have been devoid of genuinely serious anime, but I'm not the biggest Shirrow fan out there, so I'm not expecting that much from it.

EDIT:
A new OVA with a May release date would make more sense, looking at the overlap with Moshidora that would happen otherwise.

Good news, good news.



I hope they work out something with Genesis, too (probably not).

Stop remaking it, make it a sequel to the OVA, or a sequel to Ex Machina, it's just not fair, I want to see a sequel.

It's a "new story" d00d. Guess I'm the only one here, but I personally don't mind 13 ep about the times when Briareos was in his human form <3



If he's not with us, he's AGAINST us!!!

I'm quite happy as Appleseed was great.
But i wonder if they have enough source material for a whole series?

Didn't Production IG say a while ago that they were returning to an old popular franchise? People thought it would be more Ghost in the Shell. Guess it was actually Appleseed. Which, I'll admit, is a little bit of a dissapointment.

But hey, better Appleseed than another LN adaptation about traps

So basically Shirow is gonna have nothing to do with this again? Well all abroad the terrible train wreck that was Ex Machina.

Production IG has been fucking up his work to much lately, and they are doing CG for a series, yep that's gonna look like shit. I've yet to see the Japanese pull off a series with decent CG.

They're making two films and a sequel to a popular franchise in 2013. It's 2010 now.

I'm kind of expecting this to get shelved like Genesis somewhere down the road or the budget costs will get so high that they end up cutting corners a lot and end up with a really ugly looking product.

I think they said 2012, but yeah good point. I just assumed when I saw Appleseed that this was the big hit they were referring to.

So still a chance of more GITS? Keeping ma fingers crossed

A series? That could be cool, though I can't say I was a big fan or the CGI movies. Someone forgot to write a compelling story for them.

I've watched Appleseed(2004) and quite enjoyed it. Haven't watched Ex Machina yet though. Anyway, this is a good enough interesting news to me.

I have seen the original from back in the 90s and have to say it was awesome! I re-watched it at least 3 more times! I am in all the way in this one.
