Does anyone think this looks even remotely good?

I don't, just asking.

The theme song sounds like something from those trashy, smutty otome games with lots of flowers.
Lyrics at 0:17 totally say "Aaare youuu gaaaaaaaaay"


What is heard cannot be unheard. ;D

Looks crappy... but we'll see.

I honestly do not like Phantasy Star. Even the online game sucks.

Wow, the CGi makes my eyes bleed


Not only that, the animation is pretty bad in general. And that's for a PV where studios try to make it look extra good because they want to draw in more people...

wow, way to go sega, the game with the best lore gets an anime adaptation with highschool-mmo- setting, and then sega will complain about their budgets, when u waste money to make crap like this up what do u expect ffs. Not a single character from PSO2 in here, uber crap.
Yea, Sega needs to get their shit together and start making smart choices again or else their company will die.

It's an original story, so there is no harm in watching. I've played Phantasy Star Portable (a spin-off) a long time ago so it could be similar to that.


I played a psp version to it a few years back. Thought it was ok.

I'll pass, why couldn't Sega just have the same set in a canon Phantasy Star world or at least be set in an original planet unrelated the the plot of any game.

Because it's Sega.

Looks just as shit as gunslinger stratos

Looks shitty enough for me to check it out.
Sometimes you should watch shitty shows to be reminded why your favorite anime is better.

The 2nd coming of Gunslinger Stratos incoming!!!!

I smell a colossal trainwreck!

I would like a plot synopsis at this point. Given this is a Phantasy Star based anime but it's set "on earth" or something stupid like that just makes me think Sega is desperately riding SAO's coattails.

Looks like a fantasy spin-off for Gunslinger Stratos... Feels like it could be as bad as well.

This looks like a waste of time.
