Mad House Is Doing An Iron Man Anime.

From Warren Ellis:
This is the second of the two teaser pieces shown at San Diego on Friday. This is the test animation for the IRON MAN anime series I’m writing, produced for the south east Asian market. Note test animation: it’s intended to show off the style of the piece only. Nothing in here reflects the actual content, just the design and the aesthetic and the animation. The only character in this piece that is in the actual series is Iron Man himself, okay?

I am frighteningly excited about a Warren Ellis Iron Man, considering that he was able to rescue GI Joe from an ignoble bloodless animated piss of a joke.

Well, mostly, sadly, the final climactic show down seemed to have lacked that certain "umph" I was expecting. Then again, I was mostly expecting buckets of blood in a torrential showering of goat fucking horror. I may have a bit skewed a viewpoint about everything.

Anyway, considering that the production studio is Madhouse (check out their list of accomplishments), the animation quality would be equally excellent.

Now if only they could tone the overwhelming Japanese anime culture out of the film...

Ok, I will allow about 15 seconds of cat-eared-demon-girls sucking off giant-robotic-squid with a tanker of bukkake on the side, but only 15 seconds.


Wow, it's like watching Ninja Scroll in slow motion... I hope they could put some focus on crazy fast fighting scenes.
