At the Phantasy Star Kanshasai 2019 event on Sunday, Sega announced a new TV anime based on its Phantasy Star Online 2 game series. Titled Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle, the anime will feature a retelling of the first three Episodes of the game and an original story, and will debut this year.

Phantasy Star Online 2 was released for Microsoft Windows in 2012 and PlayStation Vita in 2013. The mobile game titled Phantasy Star Online 2es became available on Android and iOS platforms in 2014. Sega released Episode 5—the latest Episode in the game—in July 2017. Episode 6 is scheduled for an April 24 release.

The game inspired a 12-episode anime adaptation in Winter 2016, commemorating the franchise's 15th anniversary.

At first, while reading the comments I thought people were exaggerating but this does look super generic. Besides not being a fan of the franchise - I think I will skip out on this one.

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.

OH good it follows the game's story (unlike the previous anime...)
I played the game at launch but I couldn't understand JP so I might pick this one up

The story and world of PSO2 feels far from generic and unlike SAO
Before you quote me, carefully re-read what I have written.
Discussions that go around in circles will not be entertained.

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.

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.
