Tachibana is a student who recently transferred to Sega Academy a
high tech model school, where the Phantasy Star Online 2
game is the current rave and trend. And to his surprise, the school
president (and school idol) Rina Izumi suddenly recruits Itsuki to be
her vice president to explore if Phantasy Star Online 2
is effecting student body and social media, but there are secrets to
this game and those who play it... as Itsuki learns more about the
game that it may not just be a mere game in Phantasy Star Online
2: The Animation (2016).
Tachibana is recruited to test out the social impact on students and
how it effects their social life and studies to prove that the
popular video game does not effect their grades. Turns out Itsuki
has a natural aptitude towards the game and quickly gets hooked into
the role playing virtual world, but he soon learns it is not just a
game but a testing ground, Phantasy Star Online is REAL. It is true
purpose is to test people who can use Photons and battle 'Darkers'.
That it is truly a test to see who can go beyond the game.
on the popular game Sega created a few years ago, Phantasy Star
Online 2 combines with anime and makes fun of the video
game/online role playing world, but like all fantasy players and
anime about the virtual world, they dive into the story of what
happens if the virtual world becomes real. Which is which? This is
a well done series.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfers may be new,
but tends to be too oversimplified to meet the look of the game
instead of expanding its look for HD, while the
DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) Japanese 2.0 Stereo lossless mix does have
some Pro-Logic-like surrounds to get more out of the soundtrack, but
the overall sound mixes on each show tend to be a bit underwhelming.
Extras includes clean opening and closing animations, Japanese
commentary and trailers.
