Assalamualaikum/Peace Upon You
Apparently, Gonzo and Malaysia Animation Studio will do a collaboration in making an animation series of the Epic of Hang Tuah.
The new project will be called Satria – The Warriors of the 7 Elements. Slated for fall 2012, it will have 24 episodes, and will be directed by the aforementioned Kitakubo-san who also directed the anime series Blood: The Last Vampire. Don’t expect this to be a high octane, full of stereotype Japanese anime cliche however, as it’s targeted to young teens aged between 9 to 14.
Apparently the antagonist inside this animation will be the 7 Siluman. And apparently this venture was announced way back in 2007, and was in Funcel’s website. Hmmm... Waiting for a long time apparently. 6 years in progress.
Personally, my ideal of an hero would be Hang Jebat since he believes in friendship and trust unlike Hang Tuah which only follow orders without questioning them. Sadly the voice acting recruiting was opened to popular artists. I want to do voice acting for Hang Jebat. \(╬ ಠ益ಠ)/
