Oh, it's A-1 pictures 305th fantasy anime. I hope this is not another "trapped inside gamez" one.
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

IM NOT AN ELITIST

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

The animation looks good, the cast is also good and Bump of Chicken will sing the opening? Sounds promising. A1 Pictures better not screw this.

Lolol when I saw the picture, I thought it was some SAO spinoff.


As long as it's not harem or cringey romance, I'll give it a shot.

Background animation looks the same as grimgar had and since its A-1 the quality of animation shouldnt really be a question but it also kinda reminds of cerberus so i hope it wont be a failure with some wimpy MC. Oh well that blue haired girl looks like a real cutie ^^

Eh, it looks okay I guess but could easily be a hit or a miss. Never played the game before so I'll give it a try. I really hope A-1 can keep the quality for the show but I have doubts.

I don't trust A-1 for mobile adaptations after how they turned Cinderella Girls into a disasterpiece, it could be hit or miss.

You mean like, 4 split cours in 2 years?

Seeing as this is another game adaptation from Cygames, I hope they make an interesting story with it and give a decent budget for it.

i think the majority of a1 picture have a decent art/animation (even if they have a shitty plot) at least better than studios like deen and toei

So it is going to be based on the game "plot" which isn't that great.

Source? If true, plenty of time for world building and character development so hope the staff do a good job.

------------------

Looks good, background art looks very nice, I like the character designs, has the original music composers and BUMP OF CHICKEN. Just hope the dragon design is at least better than MAPPA's one. Seems like this will be Magi type quality art and animation probably.

Holy shit! Nobou Uematsu? That Nobou Uematsu?! That guy who composed the greatest OST of all time from Final Fantasy VII?!! The God of Sountracks?!!!

Kyaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!

I am so going to watch this and my hopes for A-1 Pictures has 100% been fulfilled. The fact that they managed to hire one of the greatest music composers of all time is enough for me to forgive A-1 Pictures for a couple of years. I'm literally not joking and I am legit serious.

Also, BUMP OF CHICKEN? Were they the same band who did the Final Fantasy Type-0 Credits/ED Theme song?

A-1 Pictures, you are fucking kiling it in the soundtrack department. I salute you o7

If you play the game which is a major grindfest everywhere, you will hear a lot of eargasm BGM's especially the Bahamut one is my favorite.

I really do hope though because so far this year for them is a shitty one, Grimgar for me is the only show that had better visuals for an average series.

The Final Fantasy franchise as a whole was a grindfest and that's what made it enjoyable because the rewards at the end are worth it. I hope I get the same feeling if I were to play this game. I'll get major eargasm? I'm going to make sure I keep that in mind xD.

The artstyle reminds me of the Grimgar artstyle, so this will be really nice to see. Though the A-1 Hate is too much.
