Hmm well whatever it is, well... I got attention due to the key visual and the staff, which I assume the chief director did some SL episode directing which is nice along with the script writer being competent enough.
Who knows, it MIGHT turn out fine. Hopefully.

fucking Animax man. So pathetic that they can't even pay their carrier charges in my country. Their streaming service's shit as well.
So doesn't surprise me, they're coming out with smartphone garbage.
Nevertheless, staff looks impressive. I wonder what they will succeed.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

I haven't even seen it yet tbh, is it really that bad though?
It's not that good coupled with the fact that it's one of those "play the game while you watch the anime" type of anime. Don't bother with anime with this model, other mobile adaptations like Granblue Fantasy and Idolmaster Cinderella Girls don't require you to play the game much less play as you watch.
