Years ago, the opening of an interdimensional portal released two beasts into the skies over the Sea of Japan, visible to all the countries along the coast. After destroying the naval patrol sent to investigate the disturbance, the two beasts then turned against each other.

Witnessing the fight from Japan, scientists Joe and Marie Hayakawa were sucked into the rift. Upon returning to Earth, they compiled and published the academic findings from their voyage in a legendary book titled ''Day of Succession''. Attempting a second expedition to that other dimension twelve years later, the couple have not returned.

Twins Ai and Yu Hayakawa decide to set forth in search of their parents and the mysterious Wonderland they studied. In the ruins of an abandoned subway station, the two wait for a train to take them to the world beyond. On board they meet Lisa Pacifist, who quickly decides to aid the two in the search for their missing family. Can the three of them manage to find Joe and Marie?

This was a very different kind of Final Fantasy I'm used to, but coming from a Final Fantasy fan since over a decade now, I didn't expect it to be just another sword hack-and-slash anime trying to copy the games. I enjoyed it very much, even rewatched and shared with my friends.

It's much darker and creepier than I imagined it would be. The story was pretty great and original, and the characters were likable. The character's did, however, seem to come right from a children's book, which, at least to me, added to the effect.

I recommend the subtitles though, because the english dub for ...

The best way to explain FF:U's situation is this; it's not as bad as it may be made out to look, in fact a good story *is* there, but it does suffer from a lot of outside issues that hurt its production. See how the anime stops at 25 episodes? It was originally supposed to be about 50, with the ending actually being just about the halfway point, but had to be cut due to multiple budget cuts. There are published versions of the rest in the form of light novels, but none have been officially translated. That, and it's an FF anime in the ...

The anime sets up its own story and lore like many Final Fantasy games. It is self-contained so it is not necessary to play the games beforehand to follow the adaptation.

Overall story is very cheesy and lighthearted and not in a good way. The themes from ...
