Trailer streamed for Madhouse's Ninja Scroll Burst

Woah, check this out! Madhouse has streamed a trailer for an in-development anime that resurrects a legendary property: the 1993 movie Ninja Scroll. Titled Ninja Scroll Burst, the "3-episode short animation" is a "challenge" between director Yoshiaki Kawajiri (director of the original movie) and Madhouse to...well, they don't say, but I'd assume the challenge is to make a bad-ass anime.

I'm loving the old-fashioned look of the characters that makes them stand out from modern anime design, but what's up with those CG origami cranes? [Insert tired rant about how blatant CG is ruining anime.] Oh well, at least the rest of it is looking good.

Madhouse is still unsure about the release, saying that it "is still under consideration." This thing has been in the works for years, so let's hope it eventually gets completed!
