Looks pretty terrible to me, but it does count as "anime", I think. It'll probably look pretty slick from a purely visual standpoint, but the franchise has a pretty spotty history.
I liked the TV series well enough, and the first movie of course, but everything else with the name "Highlander" has been almost universally awful (anyone else remember the previous cartoon series? Go look for it, you'll be horrified).
Maybe this will break the chain, though. :D
