"Is this considered anime?

I am guessing it kind of depends on the type of capacity the support Satelight is providing for the series, but to me it appears that the key animation production will be done stateside.

I mean I enjoyed The Boondocks but I wouldn't call it anime, and this would probably be placed in a similar sphere of traditional western animation meant for more mature audiences." - Revya The World Eater, Kotaku

"If it's made primarily by Japanese people for a primarily Japanese audience, it's anime. Otherwise, no, it's an animated series with anime influences.

In this case, I'm leaning toward the latter, much like Avatar/Korra (which, as far as I know, actually did receive "assistance" from a Japanese studio, which is apparently why a lot of fans are quick to call it an "anime"), but it really depends on just how big Satelight's involvement in this will be. There have certainly been "anime" (or things that I would consider "anime") that have been directed by Westerners, or had a lot of Western influence/involvement, so it really applies both ways. But the most important factor is the primary market that it is going into. Because, after all, the term "anime" is nothing more than the Japanese word for "animation"." - Wohdin, Kotaku



These are a few comments from a long thread about upcoming project Cannon Busters on famous site KOTAKU.com, which covered our campaign. Very fascinating.

Man I can't wait for Cannon Busters! Looks sick! Keep up the hard work! As a side note, later on in the future I am wanting to have my stuff animated just like you. Is it possible for me to get some contact info from you for future reference? I won't bother you by spamming your email box or anything like that if you're a bit skeptical. XD

Hey thanks! I don't share contacts with complete strangers, certainly not in the form of speculative future promises, but man, if we ever cross paths working in the industry, anything's possible.^^ Good luck on your journey and perhaps I'll see your finished, animated project out there some day. Hold the Email (and public) spamming for contacts tho, haha.

HNY!

Cool man thanks. I figured as much, just thought I'd ask. I just started a website though and if you could take a look sometime (as I know you are extremely busy right now) and could offer some feedback it would be greatly appreciated. The website is called yinmanga.com. Contact info is ayindehall@gmail.com or @camjoenova on twitter (i follow you already). Anyways, I'm sure you'll see me later on in the future ;) Good luck!
