Phantasy Star Online 2 The Animation is an anime adaptation based on the video game Phantasy Star Online 2 in the Phantasy Star series published by Sega. The opening theme is “Zessei Stargate” by Shouta Aoi and the Ending theme is performed by Ayaka Suwa and M.A.O. The anime visuals are pretty good.
The anime kicks off with the gameplay of the game PSO2 (Phantasy Star Online 2) itself followed by the opening theme. Then, there comes our hero, Tachibana Itsuki. A highschool (Seiga Academy) kid who is nicknamed as “the handy man”. Because he can handle anything thrown at him pretty well (just okay). But he’s not the best at anything. On the other hand is Izumi, the student council President. She is the best in almost everything, often called as the Star of Seiga. Their first meet seems kinda awkward. However, Itsuki somehow is able to earn the trust of Izumi.
One fine day, our hero gets an e-mail from the student council President. And that’s when things get more interesting (Spoiler). He has a very good friend in his school, Kota. He often requests Itsuki to try the Online RPG game PSO2. However, our hero is not all that interested in online games.
Nevertheless, eventually Itsuki gives it (PSO2) a try. There, he meets a veteran player, SORO. SORO helps him out in his first mission. Don’t worry, I’m not gonna tell you the real name SORO (Spoiler). Just don’t ask me why because even our hero doesn’t know that (You better watch and have fun). Also the progress of the anime might be the issue of how Itsuki manages to break through the limits of the PSO2 game. So, if you’re looking for any short anime to kill your time, watch this anime and have fun.
