What the hell is that cast? It's just downright OP, damn.
It even made me forget my utter despise for that first PSO2 anima (just remembering gives me a headache).

I might check this one out, but with an unprecedented amount of skepticism.




Totsuka route is the way, Hachiman!

It's the same VA cast as in the game itself other than Ash (in the game, "Ash" is a silent protagonist since it's the player character).

That cast list is just the beginning, here's a bunch more VAs that I'm expecting to appear in the anime, since the characters that are voiced by them in the game are all fairly important:

(There's more too, but I figure this is enough). :P

The most worrying thing about this anime adapation is the studio though...

Just... wow.
I figured they were the VAs from the game, but it doesn't change the fact that it's a superb cast. It's so dmn good.
All they needed was this guy to make it the ultimate cast, at least for me..

That being said... even if the studio is not the best (to say the least), the main staff seems decent.
With enough budget, it could be a good series, though I'm highly discouraged to think that way.

He does voice a couple supporting characters in the game, but neither will appear in this anime (the anime will cover episode 1 to 3, the characters voiced by him were introduced in episodes 4 and 5).

EDIT:
I may as well include this, the VAs listed in the game's credits at the end of episode 3 (which is where this anime will stop, not including the special VAs list for the smaller roles):



It's possible that some characters could end up not appearing in the anime at all though.
