Its Christmas today and with the New Year's approaching, its holiday season. The MSHP wishes all its readers a happy and safe holiday and may next year bring us more Shirow goodness! ^_^ Here's a little checklist of what we can look forward to in 2006:
Did I miss anything? :) Anyway, 2006 is shaping up like a very decent year for Shirow fans, so we hope that all the projects go smoothly.
Over at Production IG, everyone's in a holiday mood too, especially since the company's stock price goes Up 3.5x:
Kabushiki and Radio Nikkei report Prodcution I.G.'s IPO of 510,000 Yen increased to 1,500,000 Yen at the market close of first day' trading on the JASDAQ, December 21st. The second day saw a 3.5x leap over the IPO asking price with a close at 1,800,000 Yen. Source: Anime News Service
Well done to all I.G. staffs! More GITS next year I hope? :D
Didn't realise (or I didn't go through the PS Game Artbook as thoroughly as I thought) that the animation was actually done by the studio so its quite an informative article. I like this quote:
Compared to the movie directed by Mamoru Oshii, the style is closer to Shirow Masamune's original comic, with a glamorous Motoko and a far more aggressive Fuchikoma.
Red... Hmmm... Definitely, it's not her colour >_
But Major is smiling (ur. . . smirking [sort of??]), she clearly likes the red dress with her purple hair. ;-)
I wish they'd put those things up in a higher resolution.
Which animation house is handling the appleseed series? I take it the people who worked on the movie are busy with the 2nd one.
I think those pics were meant to be used on Production IG's webpage, so its not supposed to be at higher resolution.
Appleseed will be done by Shinji Aramaki's team. I presume its the same team as Appleseed Live Anime.
Goha, don't get too upset about Motoko's dress hm? ;)
Have a Smashing Happy New Year!
