Production Has Been Discontinued!
For various reasons they have decided not to continue with the anime (they must have realized making a high quality anime costs alot and game based series sells like shit).

They make smartphone MMOs now? Jesus, gaming is truly dead in Japan. Thanks smartphones for killing the industry.

MMOs are for PCs, not fucking mobile!

I'm actually really excited about this. I really loved the game at first. Played it all the time but there was no story and there was so much grinding that I got bored. I am so happy to see they are turning this game into an anime with a story. Especially with the awesome character and weapon designs.

Also, does anyone have a link to Studio Felix Film's webpage. I would like to see other work they've done.

I played the game for a while before and honestly it was just your typical RPG. Mediocre to be honest. Not expecting much from this adaptation.

Oh man I used to play this game. I don't know how I lasted until the 10th~11th floor before quitting. Was drawn in by how such beautiful graphics could be possible on a smartphone game. In reality it drained a ton of battery and if you wanted to grind for more than an hour you had to plug your phone to a power outlet.

There's almost zero story to it and pretty much just a leveling game. It was interesting once in awhile trying to kill map bosses but that was it. Unless they can add a good story to this... I don't know.

It's official. Anime adaptations of MMOs are now a trend
(Examples: PSO2, Onigiri)

oh man.
original story of MMORPG adaptation really bad
first thing first. even MMORPG itself is lack of story
just grinding shit and PK somebody.
the only good is guild war.

I actually don't mind the designs. I'll probably give it a shot.

It's probably going to be CGI and I really don't care for it. :3
