happy elements: announces enstar's anime adaptation 2 years+ ago
NOT A SINGLE PV AND NO INFO ABOUT IT EVER AGAIN
meanwhile enstar continues to get more popular to funds hapiele's other projects

last period: game releases after enstars rakes in the cash for them
gets anime adaptation announced and wait the airing already starts in april!??! WHAT. THEY JUST ANNOUNCED IT...
not just mercstoria but also last period... what are they doing with our money tbh... honestly...=___= with enstar's profits there's no way they can only afford to announce 'WE'VE DECIDED ON THE TITLE : ENSEMBLE STARS THE ANIMATION!!' (with a logo that looks exactly the same as the game's except with two additional words) while they're funding anime after anime of random games that don't even have 1/10 the fanbase...

sorry for the rant to people who don't have it in for happy elements please ignore my comment! i just felt so angry because i've been waiting for the same company to fund the anime of the game like they promised to 2 years ++ ago... :((
(hope i don't make any hapiele fans angry)

I'm not expecting anything spectacular from it but I'll just say: Give me at least some entertainment value or don't piss me off and we'll be fine.

Looks good, it gives me some mabinogi vibes

Feb 4, 2018 1:25 PM by PolarCyrus97

Another shit game adaptation.

Looks great. Tanoshimi!

At least I’ve tried. That’s all it matters!

Is garbage like that subsidised from Nippon's budget? I can't imagine someone looking at it and thinking all that money and time spent making trash like that will pay off. They have to have some weird source of financing.

Lmfao this is a big NO

Cheap animation, and everything else is so generic

Feb 4, 2018 5:26 AM by Xenocrisi

Looks as cheap as it gets.

Feb 4, 2018 5:18 AM by Nanaca

It looks... cute?

Another smartphone game adaptation to avoid

Judging from the staff & the PV, this is your average, old school, trashy fantasy anime. I used to enjoy something like this.

Feb 4, 2018 1:27 AM by TheServant

Another gacha game adaptation.

I am going to die this spring(as a seasonal anime watcher)

Feb 3, 2018 11:32 PM by TheGeniusBaka

Honestly, the only good looking thing about this show is that A-1 Pictures isn't doing it so they stop getting blamed for "bad" shows. This looks horrid, but honestly, I will give it an episode or two. Things can be deceiving.

Feb 3, 2018 11:05 PM by Calal-Chan

Looks childish I might give it one episode or so, but overall I don't think it looks that good at all I will probably pass on this one.

It's like those girls got their own ''Period'' after beating those monsters.

Feb 3, 2018 10:28 PM by Gridley

Even if the season wasnt loaded as fuck like spring, i wouldnt touch this with a stick.
