So I just picked up the Y's Anime and I'm curious... how accurate is the anime telling of the tale to the games? I played through Ys 1  but not Ys 2 and I'm hoping this will suffice because I'm really anxious to get onto Oath (I wanna view the story chronologically and don't feel like running into baddies for 12 more hours..... i want to swing a sword damnit).....

Also, while on that note.... instead of making multiple threads.... what other anime based on rpgs or games are accurate to the series and not spin offs or too bastard-ized to be considered a sufficient re-telling of the tale? I've pretty much avoided most "game to anime" conversions in the past....

In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Pretty much all of the best selling "Tales" series has an anime to go with it. Phantasia, abyss, symphonia, vesperia...may be more, idk offhand. Though not an rpg, Devip May cry has an anime as well, though it is its own story. Not much else I can name offhand.

Tales of Eternia can be added to the list of Tales games w/ anime, but it's a side story thing.  Phantasia's OVA is a fair retelling of the middle of the game and Abyss is also pretty straightforward. 

There have been multiple anime made in the Street Fighter and Fatal Fury / King of Fighters franchises, but they're all awful with the exception of the Street Fighter 2 animated movie (which is awesome and don't you forget it).  Avoid the two SF Alpha animes like they're a handsy person with herpes.

How is the anime series of Valkyria Chronicles? Never played the game by the way.
