This is what the first PSO2 anime should have been, an adaptation of the game's actual story, none of the high school/Earth stuff from the previous anime.
I just hope it's 2 cours, I don't think 1 cour is enough for what it's going to cover.

Instead of TV format, they should have go for ova format. PV already revealed questionable animation.. wonder this will be another show that will struggle to reach above 6 mal score.
OVAs would not work for this, there's just way too much to cover for that.
Even the TV format, if it ends up being just 1 cour it'll probably be a rushed mess, but if it's 2 cours, it could end up being good, at least for me (though I'm biased since I play and enjoy the game).
From a story perspective, depending on how the adaptation is handled, this should be alot better than the previous PSO2 anime at least (which is not saying much). Though, even that anime managed to get a mal score in the mid 6s, so I could see this one maybe reaching the mid 7s if they don't mess it up.

Wasn't the other Phantasy Star anime super bad?
It was pretty mediocre, but the new anime will actually be about PSO2's main story, unlike the previous one.
This new anime is what the first anime should have been about, instead of the high school setting.

I want a PSO 1 (Episode I, II, Blue Burst) adaptation :/ It's obvious they chose PSO2 because it's currently more popular, but I think they should go back a bit to the past stuff. Anyway, i have no faith in this. The first anime series was a piece of turd.

I got hyped when I see this anime PSO2 S2 its really great i am watching this again PSO2 S1
it's weird but i am not seeing that Gundam in this trailer
The first PSO2 anime was just a side story, this new anime is going to cover the actual main story of the game, which doesn't include any of the main characters from the first season.
From the 1st season's list of characters (https://myanimelist.net/anime/31223/Phantasy_Star_Online_2_The_Animation/characters), expect only the following ones to appear in the 2nd season:
Echo, Kasura, Matoi (she's a main character in the main story), Patty, Quna, Tia, and Zeno.
