    In this month’s edition of Jump X magazine in Japan, Ubisoft’s piratical plunderer and sea-wanderin’ assassin Edward Kenway from Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag makes the transition from game character to manga character with a special serialization from Japanese publisher Shueisha.

    Usually when western licenses get turned into an anime or manga it doesn't end too well.

    See dead space, dante's inferno, mass effect.

    Western comic characters don't usually turn out too well either.

    Is Halo Legends good? I've heard too much silly fanboy bitching (animue is 4 fags1!) that it's hard to find proper honest opinions about it.

    EA cash-in movies do not count imo.

    they are ment to be shit. Like the super mario bros tv show.


    Ubisoft likes to have a hardcore grip on its ip so maybe some good will come out of this.

    I hate it when chunks of a game series story gets taken out and shoved into stupid comics and books, like when bungie decided it would be a good idea to put the time between halo 2 and halo 3 into a comic. Yeah um I your enjoy games, I don't want to have to read your crappy books and comics to understand the story thanks.

    Halo legends is awful. Not canon in the slightest.

    Or when 343i decided to base the entire story of Halo 4 on the events of some extended universe novel. "OMG it's Didact" "We have to stop Didact", meanwhile I'm asking "Who the fuck is Didact?"

    I don't think they were that bad, but the young supermodel Halsey trapped in a Covenant ship surrounded by many more Covenant ships saved by 4 Spartans on their spacejets with I think 2 casualties was a little off.

    Halo Legends gets way too much shit imo, sure some of the episodes (or whatever you wanna call them) weren't great and yeah that one short movie about Elites in old Japan or whatever had a polarising artstyle but really it's not that bad overall

    Just don't expect the same Halo you got from the games and the books and you'll like at least parts of it

    Art style seems okay, weirdly reminded of Castlevania from the picture shown. Asscreed didn't need a mango, though.

    Well, it wasn't spectacular narrative wise, but it was great animation wise. I would place it right next to the Animatrix.

    I personally thought that the EA movies were lacking in both, it felt...shallow.

    I completely agree, the fact that Halo 4 exists is bad enough already without it not having a story that anyone who plays Halo gets

    origins part 1 and 2 was amazing and easily the best part of halo legends. it was like watching animatrix at that point.

    second place goes to the super crazy 3D animated one.

    What the fuck are you talking about, the Mass Effect anime was fucking HILARIOUS.

    We got a group of like 15 people together to laugh and cringe together

    Edited:

    Especially when the little girl and her mother get crushed in the Collector Ship, we were all just like "holy fuck AHAHAHAAA oh god".

    Good times.

    The feodal japan elites short was probably my favorite one because it just blatantly screwed around with the lore and did something great with the elites.
