So I found out a day after everyone else that the Marvel Anime serials I devised will air on G4 television in the US during 2011. These serials are being made by Madhouse in Japan, for the south east Asian television market, so the G4 airings will either be dubbed or subtitled.
I then wrote outlines for each episode of each serial. These outlines were then turned into scripts by Madhouse’s writers, and then made into animation by Madhouse’s directors and animators. Because I knew the process in advance, the outlines were really just plot, pacing and colour. I imagine and expect that I’ve been seriously rewritten in places by the actual writers, which is fine and all part of the process.
Not really sure how G4 managed to snag this deal (there are jokes I could make about Olivia Munn, but I won’t) but with this they’ve ensured that they get to hold on just a little while longer, that is of course assuming all you true believers out there can hold horses and not just download the subbed episodes that are sure to appear online after they air.
Also coming down the pipeline from Warren Ellis and MadHouse are anime adaptations of Blade, Wolverine, and the X-men.
2011 is looking to be a great year for comic book fans.
