This is an anime directed by Micah Ian Wright. While he is an American, it was animated in Japan by the Japanese animation studio Madhouse. Basically it was to be the first "action" genre show on Nickelodeon Channel, but the people there were hesitant due to the "violent" nature of it (though nothing worse than any Batman cartoon on Fox Kids). After the 9/11 attacks though, it was considered in poor taste to have any new violent TV programming, at which point Nickelodeon definitely refused the idea. Even though now it's 10 years later, Mr. Wright has not tried to approach any other TV network with the show. Sadly, it seems that he's given up trying. No full length 20+ minute episodes have ever been produced. Only the 10 minute pilot exists. However, Mr. Wright feels that the public has the right to see his work, so he has posted the 10 minute pilot on his Youtube account.
After watching it, what do you think of it? Does it look good? Do you think it should be aired? What do you think the chance is that Mr. Wright will successfully convince a TV network to carry the show at some point in the future?
