The cartoon is Hasbro's apology for the travesty that is the live-action movie. It's just that the live-action movie is going to suck soooooo bad, that Hasbro is issuing the apology a few months in advance. :laugh:

That's too bad. I can totally picture Matt Hughes as GI Joe the movie though :)

They're supposed to be posting 2 new 5-minute episodes each day on adultswim.com (they usually show up on Youtube within a few hours) and then they're going to play the entire thing on TV, as one long movie, this Saturday night at midnight.

http://www.hasbro.com/gijoe/default.cfm?page=News/Item&newsid=AA5F5416-D56F-E112-4B332FB50BEBB148

Hasbro announced today that G.I. Joe: Resolute, an adult fan oriented animated mini-series, will be broadcast via Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim on television as well as online. Based on the classic G.I. JOE brand, Hasbro created 60 minutes of total content for this new story which will be presented as 11 episodes.

Beginning on April 17, fans will be able to see the first five minutes of the brand new, stand-alone animated mini-series on AdultSwim.com. These episodes are broken down to ten 5-minute episodes and one 10-minute finale. Following the first episode on April 17, subsequent installments will be posted on the Adult Swim website leading up to a full presentation of the entire series. This finale will be broadcast on Adult Swim April 25 at midnight. This televised event will not only feature all episodes seen online, but will be the first time fans can watch the final 10 minutes of the G.I. Joe: Resolute saga. All episodes, including the finale, will be available to view online after this airing.

Intended for the adult fan that grew up with the brand in the 80’s, G.I. Joe: Resolute received standing ovations at both the G.I. JOE Convention, “JoeCon,” and San Diego Comic-Con in 2008 where sample clips were previewed. Since then, fans have eagerly been awaiting the announcement of air-dates for the series.

“In a very exciting year for the G.I. JOE brand, we’re thrilled to be able to bring the G.I. Joe: Resolute animated series to the adult G.I. JOE fan,” said Michael Verrecchia, Director of G.I. JOE Entertainment Marketing. “Adult Swim is the perfect broadcast platform to deliver the series, which features a more sophisticated animation style and story than prior animation.”

Hasbro developed the animation with executive producer Sam Register as well as a powerhouse creative team at Titmouse Studios including Joaquim Dos Santos, a veteran animation director, who worked closely with award-winning comic writer Warren Ellis, who penned the entire series. This highly regarded team brings an edgy, intense feel to the series, which will feature the most popular characters in the G.I. JOE vs. COBRA canon. Iconic characters such Duke, Snake Eyes, Scarlett and Roadblock will do battle with Cobra Commander, Destro, Baroness and Storm Shadow.

Well, I was a fan of anime before it was popular :laugh: (remember the old Robotech cartoon from the 80s?), so I think the animation style is pretty cool. But I don't really see it as too anime influenced, at least not anywhere near the same level as Sigma 6.

I'm just happy to see some high-quality traditional animation on TV again.

I didn't think it was their intention to just kill everybody off, at least I hope not. :laugh: So, I'm betting that Gung-Ho, Roadblock and Stalker survived that explosion somehow.

Did you see they even had a quick cameo from Zartan and Beachhead? Stalker is the guy with the poney tail and the goatee, right?
Think we'll see the Dreadnaughts?
I can't believe they killed off Bazooka right away, either.
I thought a lot of the scapes paid homage to the old series, but I love how serious it is. Duke is one grumpy mug in this thing, though:laugh:

In the original cartoon, Scarlet and Duke were the love interest (along with Flint and Lady Jaye). So, that's what I'm used to since I never read a single GI Joe comic until last year. The idea of her being with Snake-Eyes actually seems a little weird to me.

My first REAL taste of anime was Fist of the Northstar.. Vampire Hunter D and later Ranma 1/2... GREAT stuff...

Resolute reminds me a lot of it with the bold lines and the way the hair is done...

It's growing on me.. and the story is really nice.. I was a fan of the original Joe when I was a kid.. the full beard and the kung fu grip..

the Joe cartoons of the 80s were great.. and this does have the potential to surpass....

Robotech was my first introduction to anime or "Japanimation" as we originally called it.

Actually, that's probably not accurate, the 1982 film, The Last Unicorn, was actually the first anime film that I watched. I just wasn't aware that it was anime. There was definitely a noticeable stylistic difference compared to the Disney and Hanna-Barbera cartoons that I was used to watching; but my 4th grade mind couldn't really pin down what that difference was.

Of course, there was also Voltron and Speed Racer, but I never really watched those too much.

Did you ever watch Tenchi Muyo? The original Japanese version, not the crappy American version.

NateR
04-24-2009, 04:25 PM
For anyone who hasn't watched Robotech: The Macross Saga, I highly recommend it. It has an amazingly sophisticated story considering it was marketed in America as a kid's cartoon in the 1980s.

Here's a pretty decent summary of the first part of the story:

Robotech STILL RULES!!!!!!

Kajishima is a genius!!!!

"TEEEEENNNNCHI!!!!!!!"

Accuse me of sucking up.. or not giving you enough credit Nate.. but damn you surprise me..

Takahashi is still my all time favorite.. Ranma always has me in stitches.. and of course the OAV versions with subtitles.. gotta have the subs...

Dragon Half was really good as well.


"Urusei Yatsura" AKA " Those Obnoxious Aliens..

I love the serious and the gore and all that.. never cared about the hentia anima.. but for some reason the japanese comedy anime can break me in two...

Anyone here a fan of Ranma 1/2?

So, you watched the leaked version of Wolverine :Whistle: I seen that version as well and though I thought it was'nt great I'll still go see the finished version...
I will have to agree with Nate on the whole G.I. Joe thing of the live action gonna be bad. I'll still probably go see it as I'm a sucker for these types of movies.
*if ya guys get a chance watch the Wrestler actually a decent little movie.

Fist of the North Star, The Bubblegum Chronicles and Akira were my first introductions. I played a lot of role play in early high school and my buddies father-in-law created his own Mechanized, futuristic game.

I think Scarlette ended up choosing Duke in the comic.

I could'nt really get into the whole japanese animation thing at all just something I wasn't into. I tried watching Akira or whatever it was I just could'nt watch it.
Now stuff like Voltron,Transformers,He-Man and Speed Racer I really enjoyed and think Ive see a few episodes of Robotech.
I loved the G.I.Joe toys when I was a kid I think I had just about every vehicle they put out and had alot of the main characters. As much as I loved the toys I could never really enjoy the cartoon series.

I believe Warren Ellis wrote these episodes or so was involved to an extent. Lik all his other work I've read this series seems to start strong, original, shocking/dark and then begin to flounder...and then the cliches..

Zartan, leader of the dreadnoks shot in the back by Scarlet *just in the nick of time before he finishes off Duke* CLICHE=LAME.

Cobra Commanders wanting to "take over the nations" - wtf!? Who in the world would want that much power and why...it just doesn't add up. I've read a few Warren Ellis comics and they all seem to fall flat by the end.
