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
Tomohiro Satō as Zekuto, the mysterious player whose character's full name is "Magical Robo☆Zekuto"
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.
