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!

I played the game since over 1 week and have 2 chars over level 50 and i tested all the 10 (11 after a patch) classes in the first 30-40 levels and i know that i play this game very long time in this 1 week.
So i think i can give a early review with a enough experience for it.
It´s your choice to play the game or to let it be but i want to help you with your choice with a pro-neutral-contra-list.

Pro: -10 classes they are feels diffrent and all feels good playable. (i tested all the first 30-40 levels)
-after level 40 (i think it was 40 but it can be a little bit more or less) you can choice a second class for combine it to create your playstyle
-2-3 classes from this are better for each first class because you become 3 extra skills from the combination but you can play every class with every class you want (not the second class as first class... i mean you can´t play with bow and bow or something)
-good balanced skill-cooldowns
-you can dodge heavy attacks with movement! (it´s not to hard)
-the community is good (i didn´t read a lot of flame or other bad stuff in chat like in other MMORPGs)... i don´t speak from the steamcommunity because i only have the experience from before this game was on steam
-I like the petsystem (pets are called eidolons) because they are very usefull for fighting/buffs/healing and you can upgrade they
-You can play the game and watch Videos in high quality or other things at the same time because the game don´t need a lot of ressources from hardware (at maximum settings) and you don´t need a good internet to play it without laggs
-You can become with quests/loot/buy in shops a lot of dekoration items for your character (on the left side at the top from the minimap you can find a boosymbol, click on that and you can search all dekorationitems, eidolons[pets] or other items and you can see how they look)
-groupfinder for dungeons (this made it easy to find a group for a dungeon)
-you can find a list of events at a symbol near the minimap and with that you can see at wich time you can join a event


Neutral: -the questingsystem is standart like in the most other MMORPGs (only a very few of all have a diffrent questingsystem)
-no mana... i´m not 100% sure this is good or not because this made it easy... but maybe to easy?!?
-the game is buggy because it´s a open beta but it´s very able to play and so much better as other open betas from MMORPGs in the last time (the most of them was terrible and realy not worth to play a long time)
-the tutorial that you must play with every char is very short and that´s good
-the cashshop is it not realy worth to buy things from it because you can become all things from loyalty points or trading with other players and that´s why i think the game is able2play and not pay2play


Negativ: -you can´t play together with guys they are don´t play with steam because the servers are diffrent
-the graphic looks not up2date on highest settings(i´m not very intressted in high quality grafics but for other guys this is maybe negativ thing)
-the choice in charactercreation is very small because you have only 1 race (human), the choice between male/female, few complete faces/haircuts/eyecolors/haircolors and the charname. That´s all.
-you must play the tutorial with every new char
-tradechat=allchat... it exist a item to write in allchat but this consumable and so write all player in tradechat
-it exist few spammbots but they exist
-future forecast: the game is from aeria games and it´s free2play -> the support from all this games is bad and slow -> that´s good for hacker and bad for all other player -> updates will be small and they will don´t fix bugs fast -> that´s very good for hacker and bugabuser -> negative reputation and leaving players (the future looks dark and i think it´s not a game that you can play for ever if you want a real good and fair game... but i think you can have fun with it for months)


I think i forget a lot of things but i will complete my review later and i hope it was helpful for you.
And things they i don´t tested in my playtime are: guildsystem, PvPsystem and a lot of events.

-Edits-
Pro: -look at the eventtimer and you will see when you can join a event like quiz or something.
-you can change your second class now with a item from the shop or buy it from other players. it´s not to expensive.

Neutral: -the lategame is grinding dungeons and daily quests for leveling. it need more time to creat new quests for lategame
-they bring a new class into the game that´s called samurai. it´s a very strange class that mixed meele and range. it is the only class that i never want to play again because the swordstance don´t looks like the real swordstance from a samurai and the playstyle is bad. a lot of other guys write the same ingame and only few like this class. the class is very defective at the moment and the skills need bugfixes because you can interrupt your own skills or the skilldamage and other things they are negativ for you if you play this class. (this is neutral because you don´t need to play it and this class isn´t overpowered)

Negativ: -the gameforum is very confused because the mods are don´t put the right threads into the right forum sections
-the pvp feels strange because it has fixed times for joining. so you can´t play pvp if you want and that means you must want pvp if it´s possible or you can´t play it(that means not the duell function).
-the pvp is unbalanced and need much more patches for being fair and the matchmaking looks very random. in other MMORPGs it´s much better but i know that it´s only in a very few good.
-if you change the map it clears the chat. so you must be sure every time you want to change the map that other don´t write to you in loading screen (because you will never be able to see it) or short time before and you must be sure that you don´t want to read the chat from this map. (groupchat and other chats are cleared too)
-if the server crash you will don´t be able to play the game for longer time... the last time as the server crashed we must wait 2 days to play the game.
