Well actually, due to some copyright issues, I heard Genesis isn't being made anymore. =(

Oh fuck me.... the 2nd movie wasn't terrible enough? Product Placement and Flying Landmate battles killed it for me.

Masamune sensei needs to stop drawing porn and get back to work on some thing decent or at least get control of his IP's I'm sick of them being whored out.

This is really old news and by the looks of things.....this might have been pushed back for a 2010 or even a 2011 ;[

I wonder..

I don't see this in the lineup for next season. Though its still not the final lineup but it doesn't show traces of Appleseed.

Has this been delayed to next year?

I wonder how it will compare to Ex Machina in the visual department.

I'd like to think it be about the same, infact i wouldnt be at all surprised if it was exactly the same!

but the difference between the two recent appleseeds, the difference between those two was quite astonishing (in a good way ^^)

I'm indeed very excited for this series!!
but jumping around on yahoo & googling too, I read that Appleseed (the series) has had some series budget cuts/been delayed or what not.. hmm..

here is the link

I hate to give bad news, im sure it will come out, look amazing & simply be a great series for our collection (on hdd/dvd) but.. we "may" have to wait awhile.. T_T
