It's been a while since we last heard of Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker, the anime spin-off of Bioware's fantasy RPG. Dragonagemovie.com has been updated, and we now know that Bioware and EA's collaboration with FUNimation is coming in Spring 2012. Fumihiko Sori (Vexille) is directing the project, and studio Oxybot is taking care of animation duties. And my, what horrible animation it is. It looks quite poor, with objects having no weight at all.
Maybe the story will make up for it? Dawn of the Seeker tells the story of Cassandra, an Orlesian Seeker who is framed while attempting to save the Chantry of Andraste from a dangerous conspiracy. Cassandra must clear her name and "overcome her raging emotions" to save the day. I can almost see Bioware finishing their synopsis with, "Women, am I right?"
Hit the jump to see the first production update video and witness the lame animation for yourself.
