Kannagi has pretty good animation, so that's good. I hope they try to keep the style of the game and characters. I'm the most worried about the directing though, because I think everyone knows how most game-turned-anime become.

Clannad, Kanon, Air, Higurashi, ef? xD
I meant platform video games turned anime, like Xenosaga, Disgaea, and Final Fantasy. Visual Novels sometimes turn out decent as anime although I really don't play them, so I'm just basing it on the general consensus.
I'm cautiously optimistic about the anime. I doubt it'll live up to the game - history is not on its side, and even good adaptations suffer from some issues (Tales of the Abyss is good, but still suffers from a distinct sense of being disjointed due to the source material being a game). But I'm sure I'll watch it without fail.

I completely agree wit you on this. There have also been quite a few game-to-anime releases out that have disappointed me greatly. However, if they can somehow keep to the flow of the storyline of the game without deviating too much, it will turn out great.
But the game will likely remain dominant in my eyes. In my game at the moment, Marina Wolfstan is almost the main character of the game I use her so much. In the anime I doubt she will get much, if any, focus at all due to her not being a primary character.
She's just a side char, like many others^^
One of these optional chars for use in battle.....so nothing to worry about, besides shes playable since the very beginning, so i think you just overlooked her^^
Used her alot too ;)

Nah, the time recruits can be.. recruited are comepletly random, some can never be recruited at all, only Vyse and Aika are garunteed to show up at some point no matter what. I didn't get Marina til around chapter 8
I'm pretty sure all the recruits are available eventually, it's just the order in which they appear that is random (with the exception of the "hidden" recruits, where you need to meet certain conditions for them to appear).
The official website has been updated, and I have to say that I'm very disappointed that they're using a more generic anime art style. I mean, I understand the reason for it (trying to make it look like the game would probably have been a lot of work and expense), but I'm still wistful.
I'm extremely disappointed as well, as the artistic style is probably the most distinctive and unique thing they can capture about the game (not much they can do to invoke the equally distinctive gameplay, of course). I'm sure it could still be quite good, and I'll definitely watch it and find out, but yeah... that's awful news.
I hope they don't stray too far from the game. Episode 6 seemed to be a complete filler (Ellet episode I guess, although the way they handled it was a little weak imo) with a fair amount of QUALITY. I hope the next one picks back up into the story.
Alicia reactions are still awesome. At first I was very skeptical of the anime Alicia but her reactions are too good to dislike.
ok i found out about this when i was just surfing the net one night and remembered that the new FMA series had started on the weekend before, so i go to download the newest Ep and while i was there i found IT! now me being a big fan of the game and wanting to play it SO BAD, finding out it had an anime made about it was AMAZING, i was so suprised i started to hyperventilate and had to calm myself down because i was so excited.
i completed the anime and i loved it. but i wonder, since the anime is probably adapted from the manga are there any big differences between the anime and the game itself ?
I mean except minor changes of the order of some parts - or left out battles maybe ?
