Hooray, just yesterday I thought about how nice it'd be if there was an VC anime... and there it is.

Studio A-1 Pictures (known for "Kannagi - Crazy Shrine Maidens") will bring us the anime.
The first episode is scheduled to air in April 2009.

I can't wait. >.<

AWESOME!

Kannagi has pretty good animation, so that's good. I hope they try to keep the style of the game and characters. I'm the most worried about the directing though, because I think everyone knows how most game-turned-anime become.

I meant platform video games turned anime, like Xenosaga, Disgaea, and Final Fantasy. Visual Novels sometimes turn out decent as anime although I really don't play them, so I'm just basing it on the general consensus.

I just hope it's a 20ish episode series and it keeps the water-color art style.

I'm cautiously optimistic about the anime. I doubt it'll live up to the game - history is not on its side, and even good adaptations suffer from some issues (Tales of the Abyss is good, but still suffers from a distinct sense of being disjointed due to the source material being a game). But I'm sure I'll watch it without fail.

I completely agree wit you on this. There have also been quite a few game-to-anime releases out that have disappointed me greatly. However, if they can somehow keep to the flow of the storyline of the game without deviating too much, it will turn out great.

But the game will likely remain dominant in my eyes. In my game at the moment, Marina Wolfstan is almost the main character of the game I use her so much. In the anime I doubt she will get much, if any, focus at all due to her not being a primary character.

She's just a side char, like many others^^
One of these optional chars for use in battle.....so nothing to worry about, besides shes playable since the very beginning, so i think you just overlooked her^^
Marina <3
Used her alot too ;)

hope Vyse and Aika gets airtime.
Then perhaps Skies of Arcadia will get an anime adaptation.

I totally agree with you. She's my main force for...just about everything. She's unstoppable!

I'm pretty sure all the recruits are available eventually, it's just the order in which they appear that is random (with the exception of the "hidden" recruits, where you need to meet certain conditions for them to appear).

The official website has been updated, and I have to say that I'm very disappointed that they're using a more generic anime art style. I mean, I understand the reason for it (trying to make it look like the game would probably have been a lot of work and expense), but I'm still wistful.

I'm extremely disappointed as well, as the artistic style is probably the most distinctive and unique thing they can capture about the game (not much they can do to invoke the equally distinctive gameplay, of course). I'm sure it could still be quite good, and I'll definitely watch it and find out, but yeah... that's awful news.

Well, I'm hoping to see the story a lot like the game. Not a lot of changes done, I hope.

Anyways, I sure would love to see a couple of my fave scenes in the game...like...

I hope they don't stray too far from the game. Episode 6 seemed to be a complete filler (Ellet episode I guess, although the way they handled it was a little weak imo) with a fair amount of QUALITY. I hope the next one picks back up into the story.

Alicia reactions are still awesome. At first I was very skeptical of the anime Alicia but her reactions are too good to dislike.

Selveria actually looked decent for once in ep 11, thank god. I'm not really a fan of her but the anime just didn't do her justice imo.

Are they skipping some of the battles or will they be shown later, are they sticking to the same time line as the game? obtw the anime is getting better every episode.

I like it also, never played the game tho.. I like the way they kind of put a 'wood' element in the brown/reddish colors.. never seen that used before, it's nice ^^

and the story and the characters are not bad either :D

and offtopic but, thanks for the invite, never knew there was a club for this anime ^^

i completed the anime and i loved it. but i wonder, since the anime is probably adapted from the manga are there any big differences between the anime and the game itself ?
I mean except minor changes of the order of some parts - or left out battles maybe ?
