PSO2COMI Anime, called Puso Ni Comi Anime (Japanese: アニメぷそ煮コミ) in Japanese, is an anime adaption of the online gag comic series of the same name based on the free-to-play online multiplayer game, Phantasy Star Online 2. The series premiered on Youtube in Japanese on January 7, 2019. The comic was officially localized in English on January 2021 before select episodes were compiled together and dubbed into English on February 4, 2021. Both the Japanese and English episodes can be viewed on Youtube for free.

Each bite-sized segment combs through the daily misadventures of a group of friends whose plights in-game are humorous and relatable to casual and hardcore ARKS alike.

Characters

The cast of characters

  • Mitarashi - An energetic and sincere ARKS who loves the ARKS jersey. She is a working adult and gamer with the same general disposition both in and out of the game.
  • Tetra - A passionate and outgoing female newman. In the real world, is a college student who spends part-time job wages on PSO2 scratch items. He is actually male in real life.
  • § Ichika § - A male deuman who may come across as a know-it-all. Born from the abyss and living a lonely existence, this poetic character's real life appearance is a junior high school girl.
  • Magical Robot ★ Zect - Often goes simply by Zect. This male CAST appears to be on the older side, but his true character is shrouded in mystery. He however appears to be a father according to what he says and is obsessed with Mecha.
  • Makino - A motherly male newman that plays at a laid back pace. In the real world, she is an elderly lady who loves games.
  • Dolce - A skilled female CAST who supports Makino while hiding her true identity. She is a high school girl who is in actuality Makino's granddaughter.
  • Nekonomiya♪ - A female human with a relaxed attitude. For some reason, she exposes her true nature only to Tetra and enjoys seeing her reactions.

Episode List

The Japanese version of PSO2COMI was originally released in two seasons. Season 1 featured 20 episodes with an average run time of between three to five minutes each. Season 2, retitled Puso Ni Comi Anime Refill or Puso Ni Comi Anime Okawari (Japanese: アニメぷそ煮コミおかわり), released 26 episodes with an average run time of between three to six minutes each. Each episode presents an adaption of select comics from the original web series or an anime original story.

Trivia

  • The Japanese name is wordplay on the pronunciation of "PSO2." The number "2" is written "煮". Each adventure segment is told in short bite-sized tales which alludes to the title to be read as "PSO Stew Comic." The logo itself also references a hot pot with the cooker handles adorning the sides of the image.
  • During the Movie Live event in-game on the global release of PSO2, the following clips from the original dubbed Youtube compilation were not shown:
    • Anime Season 1 Episode 14: Online and Offline Invite
