So this looks like it's going to be bad... Fantasy (sorry, phtantasy) video game adaptations are usually shit.

Do we even know the studio yet?
This doesn't look so great, feels like there's some random CG thrown in the middle of the normal animation, kinda weird.
Character designs for the guys remind of Gunslinger Stratos and of Tokyo ESP for the girls, neither of which is a good thing, even if the Tokyo ESP designs are nice.
On the fence about this, Winter already seems to have quite a bit of stuff for me to watch, too.

It's an original story, so there is no harm in watching. I've played Phantasy Star Portable (a spin-off) a long time ago so it could be similar to that.
All credit goes to Sacred.

Thanks, didn't realize that was the studio, assumed it was some TV station or something.

I love how you spelled Phantasy wrong. I hope that was intended.

I'd be surprised if this turned out to be above average in any way shape or form.

Another game adaptation... :(

Not looking forward to this. Forgettable cast and lame art

The key visual looks okay but this somehow reminds me of Gunslinger Stratos as well.

The theme song sounds like something from those trashy, smutty otome games with lots of flowers.

Not a single PSO2 character in there, might as well have just called it Phantasy Star since modern PS settings are pretty much all the same anyway.

Looks like a fantasy spin-off for Gunslinger Stratos... Feels like it could be as bad as well.

I would like a plot synopsis at this point. Given this is a Phantasy Star based anime but it's set "on earth" or something stupid like that just makes me think Sega is desperately riding SAO's coattails.

I'll pass, why couldn't Sega just have the same set in a canon Phantasy Star world or at least be set in an original planet unrelated the the plot of any game.

Looks shitty enough for me to check it out.
Sometimes you should watch shitty shows to be reminded why your favorite anime is better.

Yea, Sega needs to get their shit together and start making smart choices again or else their company will die.

Not only that, the animation is pretty bad in general. And that's for a PV where studios try to make it look extra good because they want to draw in more people...
