Imagi Goes Through Temporary Shut-Down?

Uh-oh, Imagi-o!

This may be bad news for movie-going anime fans: the Animation Guild Blog reports that Imagi, the CG studio behind the upcoming Astro Boy and Gatchaman adaptations, is temporarily shutting down operations and telling employees not to show up to work-- according to one employee. It's been known for a while that Imagi has been suffering some cash problems, though, so it's entirely probable.


If you are or know an Imagi employee, please feel free to drop me a line and share any updates you can.
