Original story heh... Well it's nearly impossible to adapt the concurrent in-game storyline so it's understandable.

I'm a big fan of the game but i won't really hope much for this. But if they will feature Lisa then i'm all set to the hypetrain

Do you know if the game is open world also? and also, do you know what are all the available classes and races for the game?

Wow. This game?

I remembered I downloaded this game (took like 2 hours to download), created a character, played the tutorial, then reached some sort of base area. Then when I wanted to create another character (because I dislike my first character), I can't do it for free, and cannot delete my first character. So I quit the game and uninstalled it.

Will watch it for the story.

It's somewhat a mix of instanced and open world.

There are 8 classes iirc (but actually it's only consisted of melee swordsman,gunner and magician with some specialized classes) and 4 different races.

R.I.P. Phantasy Online 2 Fans.

it will be a complete butchered adaptation and it will get a lot of criticism and hate.
All video games does not deserve to get anime adaptation.

If Elsword gets anime adaptation then it will be the worst video game to anime adaptation in History, just because the story on the game is a huge mess with recycled plot and it is filled with battle shounen tropes and fanservice.

Actually you can delete your character (it will took a day to be completely deleted) and there's maximum of 2 characters for free users.

as far as I know most of the game adaptations so far (that weren't adaptations of visual novels) were garbage and have quite the low score even by MAL standards, so I'm not expecting anything from this

If they're going for an original story, why not base it on the first game instead of the sequel? Maybe it has better characters/settings? IDK. It probably won't be anything special though.

PSO2 is not really a sequel though so it doesn't really matter which one they are gonna adapt.

Lol it's actually quite a good weapon. I used that fish until 10 levels before level cap :^)

And at least can they bring Kobayashi for soundtracks ? His musics are the biggest reason i play the game.

I didn't care for PSO2 but Nova was good. Also, don't expect this to get licensed no one got PSO2 or Nova outside of Asia. This won't turn out well.

Well this is unexpected. I wonder what gave Sega the decision to animate it. I don't expect much, but we'll see how it goes.

I wish it was Phantasy Star Portable 2 that was adapted though. I liked the characters in that one...

Is the anime's title really going to be "Phantasy Star Online 2"? I hope the Sword Art Online fans don't get things mixed up...

Most likely Lisa would only appear as cameo since they are going for original story, not to mention some games adaptations pick different cast for the anime.. though I really hope they use the original cast since PSO2 has quite a lot of famous voice actors like hanakana, eri kitamura, yuko iguchi, ryohei kimura, hiroshi kamiya, aoi yuuki, mariya ise, houko kuwashima, sekitomo, etc.

It would be crazy awesome.

The list and their sample voices

Not really surprised since this game is pretty popular in Japan. I want to play it too but I'm already playing Guild Wars 2 and too lazy to play any more games.

Looking forward to seeing its anime but I don't think anime adaption from game will be good.

Worried - as it's an RPG adaption and we know how those usually work - but excited nonetheless.

Seeing "The Animation" subtitle, I guess it's another video game based adaptation by Seiji Kishi perhaps? My feelings are mixed...

I wouldn't be too surprised if he became the director involved in this project. He'll probably work on Assassination Classroom Season 2 and this could also be another option for him to direct (possibly this) next year.

Needs more Marlu.

Though I guess animating an orginal story was expected though since the story EPISODE 1, 2, and 3 are already "animated" in the game.

There's also going to be a Blaze Blue, Neptunia, and Sega Hard Girls collab for ingame accessories in August.

Well, hopefully it's better than SAO.
Maybe this means we might actually get the game if the anime does well?

I always thought while playing through Episode 2 that the story would work in a slightly above average Anime.
It's a bit of a shame that they're going for an "Original Story" instead though. Since they have such a large cast, I can easily see it just being 12 episodes of fluff to show off how cute the female cast can be, then end series.
I highly expect one of the episodes to be fully dedicated to Kuna (Likely worried about stuff, or perhaps Hadred) only to end in her concert.

Something tells me this is like Devil Survivor 2 where the first bit was never animated.

This is pretty cool news hopefully the game composers are doing the anime ost, if not then it better be like it because i love the music on the Phantasy star games.

I smell another "trapped in an MMO" series. 'On Earth' and 'near future' don't belong together in something Phantasy Star related, unless Sega is actually going to confirm speculated backstory that has been lingering since the original Phantasy Star games.
