Assassin's Creed is a pretty serious franchise! It's nothing but killing, war, politics, religion and prostitutes. It's about time it lightened up. Maybe with an animated series?
DeviantArt user doubleleaf has drawn this entirely fantastical series of images depicting what the characters of Ubisoft's stealth/action franchise (in particular the latest game, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood) would look like starring in a Japanese anime.
This selection is just some of the Assassin's Creed-inspired work on doubleleaf's site; head to his deviantArt page linked below to see the rest.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was released on the Xbox and PS3 in November 2010. A PC edition should be out in March.
