Wow! That really sounds like...something. And the characters all...have names! Yay! This looks like it could be...pretty much anything. The suspense is killing me!

Am eagerly waiting for it, but especially after how closely Phantasy Star Zero resembled an anime series, I cant help but feel like I'd rather them reboot the franchise with an epic show starting with Alisa and running up through all of the Genesis RPGs.

I just hope it comes off as something more subtle like .hack//SIGN (without the "stuck in a game" part) since I always liked how that series emphasised human communication and socialising within a virtual space. Sword Art and everything after it have tempered my desire to see anymore "stuck in a game" plots for the near future.

A thought: why doesn't this look like it's running parallel to the PSO2 main story? I'm suspicious of the fact that they're trying to use this as a thinly veiled attempt to market the PC game to anime fans that may never have tried it before.

Correction: Your tagline says "15th anniversary of Phantasy Star Online 2". That should be "15th anniversary of Phantasy Star Online", i.e. without the "2".
PSO is from 2000/2001, PSO2 is from 2012/2014.

With that summary, it almost seems like a 'trapped in the game' type of series. Oh well, I'm still interested to see where this goes.

Wow, such clarity. I was on the fence before, but now I'm hyped.
