According to Anime!Anime!, Japanese movie producer Micott & Basara Inc. filed for bankruptcy on April 21st. Micott produced Appleseed (2004) and Appleseed Saga Ex Machina, and has been producing the upcoming anime Appleseed XIII. Their business had stumbled over a lawsuit on the failed production of Appleseed Genesis in 2008. They tried to recover their financial status by profiting off of Appleseed XIII but were not able to make it.

The production of Appleseed XIII will be continued by other members of the production committee.

When you trip and hit the ground you may get a bruise or a scratch, but you won't die from it. Same here. It's a ONE, single film producer, anime industry won't die because of such a thing... Take it easy, mate.
Sucks for all fans, anyway.

I never even heard of this company before but judging by the crap anime they make it's no wonder they're going bankrupt. Tell me when an important company goes bankrupt.

Maybe they went bankrupt because the Appleseed movies were complete and utter SHIT.

it's just a waste of time, which audience is going to watch it? certainly not the mass majority, yet they go through all these problems.

No, your not the only one. I liked them quite a bit, I have the first movie =).

Damn, they went bankrupt though, at least their current project will continue, but I don't think Apple Seed will continue after that.

They got progressively worse. Ex Machina was CGI trash.

How on Earth they succeed in bankrupcy, it is incredible, because they had a great material in Appleseed, it sucks when an incapable company creates this kind of masterpieces ( I mean Appleseed) and don't really manage this.
If Appleseed Genesis succeeded in creation, I think that when we were visiting the Top Anime page, Appleseed were nr 1 with 9.98.
Thank you horrible shitty company for distroying another great anime!

We still have Gintama, you know..........

I like it, but the inevitable comparison to Ghost in the Shell is what always makes this look like shit in comparison. Forget about an Appleseed series, give us MORE new seasons of Ghost in the Shell!

I mean, i like it like i said, but it's no GITS. Why fuck with this, when you know everyone will go nuts if they hear production IG are doing another season or two of GITS..

The guy above that said Appleseed movies sucked shit, no, you suck shit, becuase you had no feelings above. The Appleseed movies are not bad, but they're not good either.
