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.

This is just great.
I hope the anime will be like the game.
April 2009, added to my "Plan to watch" list.

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!

Nah, the time recruits can be.. recruited are comepletly random, some can never be recruited at all, only Vyse and Aika are garunteed to show up at some point no matter what. I didn't get Marina til around chapter 8

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.
