I played many hours of this game before it came to Steam. It's not the perfect MMO and it caters to a specific demo, I would recommend it based on the fact that is is free to try and worth a look.

Pros
- Beautiful world. The enviroments and the animals look like hand drawn anime.. the good kind. Not the cheesy cliche kind
- Very populated with a (usually) friendly player base.
- I thought I had to pay for the scarf around level 20 to continue the main quest line but apparently I did not need to. I think they make that a bit confusing on purpose. Other than that the F2P model is pretty good.
- Very easy to understand and pick up and play. Nothing is overly complex and the UI and all other things surrounding gameplay make sense.

Cons
- The million dollar MMORPG word.. grindy. The game is VERY kill 10 of these and collect 8 of these. They throw some curveballs in there occasionally but this is what ultimately had me stop playing in the 40s. It just stopped being fun.
- Dungeons are repetitive cut and paste. Nothing special there for sure.
- Didn't care for the music so I put my own ambient soundtrack to it.
- Easy. This could go under pro or con. I didn't mind it but some will.

Aside from dueling I never got too much into PvP in this game so I can't really speak on that. Each class seems pretty cool and you get to pick a secondary skill along the way which helps keep combat fresh. The battle companions are cool but can get annoying with the constant dialogue thing.

Overall I'm happy with the time I put into it. I'm sure it gets more fun when you are at or close to cap but I could not continue any longer. You can check out my video review in my First Impression/Final Impression videos below. Enjoy!

i played this game before it was released on steam and i reached a level 42 character after a week of on and off gaming.
i gotta say i really enjoyed my time with it. im gonna show a list of pro's and con's of this game just to shorten this out and give my own overall opinion of the game.

pro's

1. its a free MMO

2. the anime design and texture quality is pretty good compared to other titles. also pretty unique

3. has many graphical opions for a wide array of systems

4. no mana - very well done cooldown combat system with quite smooth movement. ( not perfect movement but good for what it is)

5. very large areas and a arrray of monsters to fight and quests to complete

6. ALSO COULD BE CON! simple 1 click quest navigation allowing you to quickly get to a quest location without having to hunt for its location

7. has a great starting area and not as dull and lengthy as other starter areas.

CON'S
1. ALSO COULD BE PRO! simple 1 click quest navigation. for those who like to explore and find what you need with a group this could ruin the experience

2. very specific audience if you dont like the asthetic of anime or cartoon look then this wont be for you

3. camera can be a hassle when playing for the first time and no real lock on system. would help those who cant multitask as well as others with controls

4. after a while it can be a grind to complete certian quests if they are repeated quests.

5. can be quite easy and no really challenge if your fighting at low levels. even at higher levels you can do most of the questing alone without a group.

6.PRO/CON: certian dungeons require a group to complete allowing more co-op opportunites or a hassle if you wish to play alone
7. in certian areas and certian times. it can strain your system and according to other users. runs porrly on certian compontents ( be sure what your pc parts are and any issues with them and the game before playing if you wish to avoid problems out the game)

for me i really enjoyed this game. alone and in the company of random people in those specific dungeons. there is no hostility and is just a blast to play for a few minutes to a few hours. i also really like this games art design and the character design ( even though there is clearly fan service) overall i would recommend you give this game a solid try and see if you enjoy it. if you like numbers on a scale i give it a 8/10 not perfect but worth a try if this game has your interest

This game is a enjoyable MMORPG. If your a anime fan and you like MMOs this might just be the game for you. Now this game is lacking in places and still has alot of glitches but the game is not very old and still has a chance to fix these issues. The world is very creative and nothing hurts the eyes. You get the ability to choose a secondary class at level 40. Not really much pay 2 win but its still there of course. great game, cool story, and nice community.


I recommend this game to anyone who likes anime and MMOs!

Graphics: 10/10
The graphics are by far the best part of the game in my opinion. The game looks lush and explorable. At times more explorable than it actually is. It looks like you really CAN go more than two minutes into the ocean without bumping into an invisible wall! (of course you can't though, the invisible wall is very much there. ;D) Each place looks unique and beautiful.
I'm in love with the style as well. Anime styles can often go wrong, especially in games, but this one is the good kind of anime, not the cheesy kind. The characters are cute and vibrant, and just look plain good.
There is a lot of eye candy here!

Customization: 8/10
The customization at the beginning of the game is average. 10 or so hair choices and eye choices with colors to go along with them. You can choose your class (all of them play very similarly by the way) and skin color. The classes aren't gender locked which I liked very much.
I would have liked to have sliders for things such as height, weight, and length of hair. If you'd like a shorter or chubbier character you're out of luck. I also would have liked to be able to choose the bangs and back of hair seperate. There are many hair styles that I only liked the front or back of.
You are going to look cute no matter what you choose but it could use some more options. You will find characters that look just like you.

Gameplay: 5/10
This is where the game goes wrong. I've heard it was too easy, but I didn't think I would mind. I've enjoyed plenty of easy games, such as Kirby and Pokemon but this isn't just the 'leveling up too fast' easy. This is the 'holding your hand throughout the entire game' easy. You can literally press a button for any quest and be guided to wherever you need to go without moving your character at all. The character is drawn by a shining path and you can just sit back, relax, have a soda, and watch your character move for you. Kind of ruins the point of a "game", eh?

Quests: 3/10
I'm not very far in the game yet, but the quests are already pushing me away. They are painfully generic. A couple of "Kill these bad guys for a reward" quests are fine in an MMO, but those kinds of quests are ALL this game has. Every single quest is nearly exactly the same. Expect a whole lot of "Sure...I can help you...but first you need to kill 10 sheep for me." And when you finish the quest they will tell you that another person could help you and they will ask you to do something very similar. The loop goes on.
One thing that annoyed me is that the things they ask you to kill aren't even bad. Most of them are animals that seem docile and don't harm you unless you harm them. Seems a bit unfair...

Story: 4/10
Average MMO story. You most likely won't get attached to any of the characters and won't care about the story much. Overall pretty boring.

Sound: 4/10
Repetitive, and unmemorable.

Recommendation:
My opinion may change, but so far I can't really recommend this game. The graphics are gorgeous, but the gameplay is awfully generic and boring. If you are in love with the graphics however, and want to become the amazing OP anime character you dream of, you should give this game a try! I'd say just download the game, play it for a couple of hours, and toss it if you aren't interested. After all, it is free right?
