If you go in with low expectations, it's not bad. The bad dialogue and basic archetype characters are kind of balanced out with the story and atmosphere the film has. It keeps to the mythos fairly well at least. We got to see it at SLA, which is why i'm wondering why it's still not really set as aired, it's been shown a few times now

Don't have much expectations on it, but I'll have to see for myself.

My opinion of this will probably directly correlate with how many Asari I see.

My brother does not want to watch anime, maybe this will make him interested.

But I guess this will just be a bunch of crap.
I am going to watch it to see how bad it will turn out to be.

Wonder if it'll have japanese voices too.
And was surprised it had gotten a MAL entry, thought it would be made in USA :P
(MAL wouldn't have made an entry for it if it was made in USA).

Hope it gets released on bluray here in Norway too, want it.

Whatever it is, don't ruin one of my fave games.

Yeah, man, it's like... Bioware... you know... so... it couldn't be, like... bad, man...

Ahem. But seriously, I'm looking forward to see Bioware's capability of transferring a story from one medium to another.

An ME anime and they decide to make it about James? How about a person people actually gave a crap about like Tali, Garrus, Wrex, or Anderson?

Hey, you think he's going to overplay the Hispanic thing like he does in the game? "Pendejo" this and "Loco" that?

YEAAAHHH more stuff about that James Vega no-one cared about.

Who is James Vega you ask?
-"The one character I never took with me on a mission".

I can't see a way for Production I.G to mess up. They've put out pretty solid stuff in the past.

-cries-
Mass Effect Multiplayer isn't BAD. I played it a bit. It's FUN.
But it's a tacked on feature that ruins the impact of the single player story.
The fact its also a fuck you in the form of anti piracy protection that hurts paying customers, as per usual, is an added kick in the pants.

Do not know what think of this anime.

well judging from the leaked script of ME3 it's turned into a retarded anime so, should fit in just fine.

alright bioware , what the fuck?


Exactly what I'm thinking. They're starting to churn out glorified call of duty games. What with DA2 being potentially the worst game I've played since one....

Now they've hopped the MP bandwagon of high-concentrate failure and are making anime. Excusez moi as I facepalm myself into a concussion.
