So when this game was finally released here in North America I quickly picked it up as I was very interested in the subject matter and of course the genre. When I got the book in my hands I just loved the size and weight of the book, the artwork and the amount of info in the huge tome of Anima goodness. I have been reading the thing and although it seems very crunchy the system looks to really lend itself very much to a cinematic way of playing. I am not a stranger to rule crunchy systems and this game can look rather intimidating at first glance but I really think the system lends itself well to the subject matter and once folks get use to it I think the system will take a backseat to the story.
I know I have a game awaiting to be run in the wings once I have finished reading through it. But I really like the depth of this game from what I have read thus far. I just wish the GameMasters Screen had been released at the same time but I have heard that it and the World Book: Gaia are in the pipeline or that is what the rumours are.
So anyone purchased this and are running a game or are planning to run a game?
