Never played the game but Sori did a wonderful job adapting Taiyo Matsumoto's Ping Pong to the big screen, so I have faith in him. I'll definitely be checking this out.

I love the game so much but I don't see this going well....

why so much negativity towards licensing companies? people should be glad that funimation is trying to make anime more known

The WRPG community (especially those that shun JRPG's) just got trolled hard.


I know right? I know so many 'classic' nerds who love sci-fi and all that Bioware stuff but absolutely hate JRPGs and anime. Time to lol @ them.

Unless of course it's total crap which will probably be the case :/...hopefully not

afaik, there won't be any of the game's characters involved in the anime. It's going to be an absolutely unrelated story set in the same world.


How do you know that?

Cool Dragon Age, one of my favorite rpgs. There so much they can put in the anime, there's a lot of history in the codex + politics conflicts + badass fighting + good character development in the game, they should be able to do something decent with the anime.

This would be even better. Saren versus Shepard animated = My dream.
