Animatrix.

If you're a fan of the Matrix and/or Anime, check out the Animatrix preview trailer, available here (requires QuickTime 5).

It looks really cool.

Took long enough - they announced that just a month or two after the first movie. Looks cool, though, better than I was expecting - and I like the fact that it's turned into a collection of short animated films rather than one full length anime-style movie. (Originally I heard it billed as an anime prequel to the Matrix - which could be interesting, I suppose, but...)

eh

The one thing I really like about animation -- anime-style animation in particular -- is that the artistic vision can be .. whatever they want. Anyone who's stayed up late enough to watch the Canadian Cartoon Art Festival knows that (that was like an acid trip without having to take anything). I do also like the idea of different visions coming together on a single point, however, because it's a lot like how history is written. Different viewpoints are taken into account, and the person who gets to 'decide' what is puts them together in their own way. With this style, we get to be that person.

Powah! POWAH! ;)
