buts the problem it's a mobile game there's barely a story in it..
Though that doesn't apply on all mobile game.
FGO and FE-Heroes does have good story.

Lol, you need to explore mobile gacha more if you say FEH has a good story

Many mobages almost always got awful adaptation even though their original story is good. Mobage adaptation always a scapegoat for cancerous anime world.

Well i don't lurk in mobile games much.
I took FEH because all the fire emblem relation it has and i liked the gameplay.
Also it's Nintendo we had as backup, i don't want to get through over weird game that keep asking you for money meanwhile the balance already broken AF.

Would've spent the money on PS4 or PC game instead of microtr

Is it something about siblings? Or does Arthur mean something else?



Well, I don't mind if it's an interesting anime based on the game, not fanservice shit, screaming "buy the game, buy it !!11"

People complaing above about trash game adaptation lol. I like them and they are welcomed in the anime community.


Because it's aiding in the destruction of the gaming industry. Look at what happened to Konami, mobile turned a company that was part of the childhoods of hundreds of millions of people world into the hottest garbage in the gaming industry in only a few years.

jewnami fully deserved what they get, lOl... they are worse than EA...

Wasn't it more because of how they treated their games? Rather than the adaptions themselves?


These mobile adaptations are made for selling the games that are destroying the industry, so they are part of the problem.

Now I'm even more confused :). But if I understand you correctly, this game has a one author with Index and Railgun?

Yes. He isn't the creator, but he writes most of the story.


Well, the idea seems to be good and there are a few of my favorite seiyu, so I'll try to get acquainted with this anime.

It's about a war between 1 million different king Arthur's IIRC. I don't follow it or anything but I remember reading that the story gets a little wild after a while because Index's author writes scenarios for it.

It's weird how they advertise these things.
Sure it'll grab some people attention but at the same time people know niche game tend to be bad due it being half assed or just a prologue lol.

I think its safe to assume that OPM2 will come in 2019. JC Staff has 4 anime this spring and 3 more this summer lol.

I think they were working on these titles way before they took OPM over in their hands.

Mar 21, 2:57 PM by PolarCyrus97

The staff look really questionable and cellphone game adaptations tend to face a number of noticeable issues. I don't notice a PV either, so I can't really say anything about how the story or any of the characters. I guess I'll pass on this, no reason to tie me down.

Eh these smartphone anime usually are shit

Mar 21, 12:58 PM by Klad

Uhhh J.C Staff has a lot of stuff at their hands so I don't know how to say about this, but then again we'll see. The staff is so-so.

Okay, another phone anime. How about a Fire Emblem or Sonic anime? Mario and Sonic are already getting theatrical animated films in the next few years.
Was Sonic X just such a failure that studios dare not touch up on making a proper Sonic action-comedy anime with characters from the games and plot like the Ian Flynn comics?
