I never thought it would do well over here, either. I mean, cultural obstacles aside, the game isn't exactly the greatest. Not to mention that if it ever does come here (which it likely won't), it will be ridiculously outdated. Wildstar is actually a game worth pushing. B&S is not.

I'm sure they'll bring it over eventually, it just makes sense to focus on one launch. Besides I'm sure RIFT was more successful than TERA in the western markets so it makes sense to focus on Wildstar first.

I've played Blade & Soul and was largely unimpressed by the story (the combat is kind of fun, but it leaves a lot to be desired in some aspects). I don't see what they will make of this. The first thing to come to mind when I saw the character designs was Queen's Blade, especially cuz of the white-haired chick...

Also, what does Rift in particular have to do with ANY of the NCSoft games mentioned? It's essentially a less ugly WoW, is from an entirely different company, and doesn't play anything like those three games... Plus, a LOT of MMOs did better than TERA in the western market.

i played Blade and soul CN but i don't think it will make that well as an anime. Sure, for a game, blade and soul have quite an impressive story but as an anime ?? i don't think so.. the story is generally straight and expected.

Which definitely doesn't apply on most of anime, you say?

That said, I wouldn't be suprised if original character had own plot-line to fill any gaps game story would leave.

If this anime will be anything like my experience in the game, it's lots of scenery porn and lots of flying around looking at said scenery porn. :P

If you think WS is a WoW clone like Rift, you're quite wrong. A lot of Carbine's staff is from Blizzard, yes. But unless you're in the beta/have played during a stress test weekend, don't take the videos and streams at face value. At the VERY least, it doesn't have ridiculously awful tab-targeting combat that requires no thought process like WoW and Rift's combat systems. You actually need to think and... y'know. Move.

Too bad given Gonzo's recent track record, it wouldn't even be well-animated as I hoped out to be.

Disappointed that Girls' Generation won't do the opening theme since they already have an history with the game's BGM before (I listened to their tie-in song and it was awesome!)

Worse, the QUALITY may rear its ugly head on every scene that is not a major battle scene.
Look at what happened to Blazblue Alter Memory, whose QUALITY reaches hilarious levels.

Meanwhile, have an Arakune going up the stairs. May or may not be relevant.

Well, animation in PV isn't bad, but it It didn't realy caught my atention. I hoped for more, but these rarely reveal much about quality of anime anyway.

Well, this shows that the animation will be decent at some places at least. Queen's Blade had pretty stiff animation most of the time, unless it were boobs. I'm not expecting anything mind-blowing, but I'm thinking it will be enjoyable to some extend, for me anyway. There are various hings like atmosphere and presentation that can do good influence on the overall quality.

Not to mention all that fanservice just on the poster. I can't imagin how the anime is going to be if the Game lets you customize the hell out of BOOBS! XD

I fear the anime will just be full of action with a downside, full of pointless fan service...

Being a TBS series, which does air shows with mild ecchi content sometimes, I wouldn't be surprised if the level is closer to Infinite Stratos which also shares the same criteria.

I can understand why are people afraid of pontless fanservice, but why is action in same manner? Action drived shows work just fine if you ask me.

Why the mutual exclusivity? I fear it's going to be full of pointless fanservice and pointless action.
