Tales of - ufotable | oprainfall

The Tales of Festival 2015 has come and gone, and with it, we’ve been given a slew of new Tales series news to chew on. Probably the most interesting thing is the newly-announced Tales game: Tales of Beseria. A close second, though, has to be a new Tales anime: the Tales of 20th Anniversary Animation.

It looks pretty interesting so far, with shots from the opening cutscenes of Tales of Xillia 1 and 2, and Tales of Zestiria. Not much was actually revealed about it, though, aside from the fact that ufotable will be handling the animation. The were also the ones who made the Tales of Zestiria: Dōshi no Yoake anime.

The text near the end reads:

A brand new work presented by ufotable
Production on a TV animation green-lit
The journey of the shepherd transcends Zestiria
Tales of 20th Anniversary Animation
Original Creator: Bandai Namco Entertainment
Animation Production: ufotable

This is hardly even the second time Bandai Namco have anime based on the Tales of series. They’ve made anime for Tales of Eternia, Tales of Phantasia, Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Vesperia ~The First Strike~ and (my personal favorite) Tales of Symphonia the Animation.

Hopefully, for this one will characters returning from the entire Tales series. I’d be most excited to see characters from Tales of Symphonia or Tales of Graces. How about you guys, though? What games would you most like to see represented?
