Chain Chronicle in a nutshell:


































Because that's the first thing I saw when I searched for images.

Thought it was going to be like Senyuu。, but it looks like we won't be getting comedy gold in a long while.

How the hell do you make an anime from a smartphone game?

I'm already expecting sub 3/10's.


Depends, Girlfriend (Kari) and Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls have it good in that they're games with genres that translate well into anime, this may not translate well into anime and as a short, the chances are even slimmer. However even if the game translates well into anime, there's a chance that the anime quality will be reduced by the studio so that you have to play the game to enjoy it fully (ex Fantasista Doll), which is nothing short of infuriating. Maybe this anime is a short because they want you to play the game to enjoy it fully.


Those games are simulation based so sure, but this game is more action-y and fantasy and will definitely run short on material to make even a short anime.

Lol short anime. I honestly can't think of anyone taking short-anime seriously.

Hm... fantasy, fighting, adapted from some obscure game, nah.

If this is getting an anime adaption, I want one of Ayakashi: Ghost Guild. That was a really fun game.

Haven't heard about the game itself and the images look pretty ordinary; so i'm not really interested. Will probably give it a try since it's a short one though but eh.

Jul 21, 2014 1:38 PM by Sylverith

Oh, so now they're randomly making an anime out of everything now. I'm not surprised with the industry anymore.

Jul 21, 2014 1:23 PM by Kinekuri

what is this ???
short as in short episodes 3 mins or short as in 1-2 ovas ????

I'll wait for more info.

Well, so far every game-based anime pretty disappointing for me.

I don't mind them existing as long as they don't force the game down your throat, just give me something nice, complete (or as complete as possible, this is also something where changing up the story would be a good thing as well), and watchable.

It's not too bad for a short, it'll make a good time waster.

Is this the period where anime adaptations are announced slowly one by one? Cos then I'll be extra attentive to the announcements.

Never heard of the game till now. I was a bit interested until I discovered that it's just a short-length anime.
