Just got this today and each chapter I am awed by the effort to be so detailed. I been a paper n dice gamer since the 70s. What i have found for Anima Beyond Fantasy to be a great value. Diverse character generation, Excelent crafting rules, and a great section for dms to help flesh out other monsters or various npcs as well. My only critisism is that I wish a gm shield was available as well. <very minor critique> The artwork is very well done and the rule system looks complex, but doesnt require a rocket scientist to learn.
