Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle (ファンタシースターオンライン2 エピソード・オラクル) is the second Japanese animted show based on Phantasy Star Online 2. Unlike Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation which featured a unique story, Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle is a retelling and restructuring of the game's "Oracle Saga" from Phantasy Star Online 2 (comprising of Episodes 1-3).

Premise

With the advent of Photon technology, the spacefaring Oracle fleet searches for new planets to explore. They combat the Falspawn, abominations that consume all life in their path, with the fearless heroes of the ARKS organization. When his graduation ceremony is crashed by a Falspawn attack, young Cadet Ash realizes that he’s just been thrust in the middle of a universal-scale conflict.

History

Development

Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle was first unveiled on March 10th 2019 with a website going up the next day.

Broadcast

In Japan the anime began airing on October 7th, 2019 on TBS and Tokyo MX. For North American and European viewers, the anime is simulcast on the same day as Japan by FUNimation Productions on their streaming service. For South East Asian viewers, Muse Asia simulcast the anime on their YouTube channel hours after a Japanese episode airs. On October 23, 2019 the anime would begin simulcasting on AnimeLab for Australian and New Zealand viewers using the same subtitles as FUNimation's stream.

The official subtitles provided by FUNimation and Muse Asia have some notable differences in their translation, phrasing and terminology. The subtitles used on FUNimation and AnimeLab's simulcast terminology that will be used in the official Western version of Phantasy Star Online 2.

In comparison, Muse Asia's translation leaves most terminology untouched and spells character names much closer to the ARKS-Layer fan translation.
