Toei's off-canon "Odd One Out" piece.
An odd revaluation just crossed my mind. Halo, the epitome of masculine manliness, will be releasing their testosterone filled anime splendor, Halo Legends, on February 16th. Does the date sound familiar? Well, it should. February 16th is the 2nd day after you forgot about Valentine's day.
 
The 15th through the 18th always hold special places in my heart, since those are the days my significant other refuses to talk to me. With that in mind, a post Valentine's Day release of Halo Legends might be just want I need to keep me warm... while I sleep on the couch.
 
Production I.G's Spartan origin story.

Anyways, the release will be ripe with various skews to meet your various needs. On the 18th, Warner promises you'll be able to choose from the 2 disc special edition versions on Blu-Ray/DVD, or the just bread and meat 1 disc DVD at brick and mortar stores. However, from home you'll be able to digitally download it, or check On Demand to play it straight from the heavens to your TV.
 
 
 
Cost of Admission:
Blu-Ray 2 disc: $34.99
DVD 2 disc: $29.98
DVD 1 disc: $19.98
 
But everyone should get the special editions, since for all we know, Gia is on it... expressing her incredibly diverse knowledge of the Halo Franchise.
 
European Release Date? I've left a message with the PR person behind the release, but no official confirmation of Europe's release date yet.The date for NA corresponds with the already known Japanese release schedule, so its likely Europe will be on the same page. When we hear back, we'll update.

@slykura: Ahh, Madman: they're sort of Australia's FUNimation, aren't they? At least it always seems like pretty much every anime in Australia is released by them.

There is some pretty badass lady soldiers and SPARTANs in that universe to. Oh and civilians as well. For instance Dr. Halsey, who is the lady behind the SPARTAN program and Cortana.

@gia: Sort of, but we're an independent company  Funi are good friends of ours .

@slykura: Oh, hey there! :) I didn't mean to imply that you guys were related to FUNimation, just that you have comparable market shares. :)

That's our Gia, always so insensitive to Australians...
