Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation is not a direct adaptation of the original games. Instead, it will be a new story, based on the original works. The setting will be on Earth and we will follow three school mates (Itsuki, Rina and Aika) as they uncover the truth about the world and the dangers that lie ahead.
Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation will premiere this 7th January on TBS at 01:46!
Later, the show will premiere also on:
CBC on 7th January 2016 at 03:00
MBS on 8th January 2016 at 03:10
BS-TBS on 9th January 2016 at 01:00.
This is the eight project to play part in the commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the entire franchise. When the new anime was announced, there were more than 3.6 million registered users in the fantasy game.
