Outside of these game announcements, Namco also revealed that Tales of the Abyss will be getting its own anime. Being produced in celebration of the series' 10th anniversary, the Tales of the Abyss anime will kick off this October and span 26 episodes.

This is so awesome! But I wonder if it will be set to the game itself, or set after the game? Either way, seeing Jade in animated form will be awesome.

Aw man...I have to finish this game. I can't wait for the anime adaption. I think (out of all the ones I've played) that this would be the best Tales game to be put as an anime.

Oh man that is sooooo freaking awesome!!!!!!!

The music brings me back. I love that song so much. <3

Regret/Legretta looks super cool in that teaser.

And of course Jade is the man.

I think the first episode is out already, but no one has fansubbed it yet.

Thats true. The anime looks great.

I didn't think Natalia would turn up so early! Luckily, it doesn't feel rushed so it's all in a nice moderate pace like it should be.

So I've finally gotten around to watching this subbed, and I so love it.

I really hope they release it here in the US, though. I'd love to be able to take high quality screen caps. ^_^

So guys, guys!! Guess what?!?

On July 22, 2010, Anime News Network announced that the North American anime distributor Bandai Entertainment acquired the licence to the Tales of the Abyss anime.
And look!

You know you want it!

There's also a slightly cheaper version here.

So apparently, it's still in Japanese with only subtitles available. But that's still the most awesome thing I've seen in a while. I'm buying it as I type.
