Phantasy Star Online 2 Game's Web Manga Gets Web Anime in January
posted on by Egan Loo
PSO2 Station, the live-streamed program for Sega's Phantasy Star Online 2 game, announced on Saturday that an anime adaptation of the game's official web manga Puso Ni Comi: Phantasy Star Online 2 Comic has been green-lit.
The manga follows the lax, less than weighty daily life of the ARKS force members.
The anime stars the following voice cast members:
Rie Hikisaka as Tetra, a college student
Aki Kanada as Ichika, a middle school student
Sayaka Senbongi as Makino, an elderly woman who loves games
Dolce (voice cast member to be announced later)
The web shorts will begin streaming weekly on the Phantasy Star channels on YouTube and Niconico on January 8. The artists Amane + BeatMario perform the theme song "Ni Co☆mmunication," and the CD will go on sale on March 20.
Sega released the free-to-play Phantasy Star Online 2 role-playing game for Windows PC in Japan in 2012, followed by a PlayStation Vita release in 2013, and an Android and iOS release in April and May 2014, respectively. The game debuted on PlayStation 4 in April 2016, followed by Nintendo Switch in April 2018.
