            Being an Otaku and a Hardcore gamer I am mostly disappointed. Why? because  I have recently  watched an Anime series called "Master Of Epic: The Animation Age"  and  later on I found out that the Anime series is actually based on  a Japan only MMORP Called  "MASTER OF EPIC"   

                

                                                                              

      

Master Of Epic was released in Japan on April, 1 ,2005 and until now is exclusive to Japan players only it was produced by Hudson Soft but the Anime made by GONZO has been shown over different countries on TV networks even here in my country.
The game is set on a traditional medieval fantasy world but in Japanese anime style. The story revolves around the three major factions
 
Diaros: Elgadin, County of the Dragon Knights who esteem law and order
 
Bisque: Country where according to the Lal Fac Faith, various clans are given the freedom to regulate themselves
 
Sasool: Country where therianthropy (metamorphosis of humans into animals) plays a leading role
 
These countries vie for control of the Noah Stone that the Mora Clan relinquished. It is said that any nation that has control over the Noah Stone will flourish. An evil character named Igo has executed a plant for the nations to wage war on each other so he may obtain the Noah Stone for himself and eventually he rules.  This has become the fate of the Future of the War Age.
3,000 years after the rule of Igo, The Future Age
The beginning of everything, 45 Million Years Ago, The Chaos Age
Passing From one age to another and back again, surmounting numerous battles, Will the adventurers be able to prevent the coming age of darkness?
 
The story is quit complicated but interacts with the game play because players will be playing in different ages the present age, war age, future age, chaos age
 

 The game has 4 unique selectable races Newtars, Cognite, Elmony, and Pandemos

      

                                                               

                                                                                                              Elmony, Cognite, Pandemos,  Newtar

 

Not only are the races in the game unique but a lot of elements in the game play. Master Of Epic has no levels instead the player can choose from a extensive list of skills, Job classes are not chosen but earned on how you decide to level up your skills or how you combine them
another amazing feature of the game that i have yet to see in other  MMORPS are the presence of hunger and thirst it affects your combat abilities if you don’t feed your character and flies start to gather around you character if you don’t wash your hair for sometime
 
With the anime being shown all over the place I’ve been left thinking. The game looks great and has a lot of unique element why has it never left Japan. Well I may never know i can only wait for someone to pick this up hopefully on an international server
 
   Bored? go watch the anime (Master Of Epic: The Animation Age)
   
"Aki-Chan"

 

Don`t forget to check back tommorow for another new game

Good article and observation. Well, We just received FEZ not too long ago, and that MMO is 6 years old?

I am unsure as to why great games are being held in Japan alone, I would think the reasoning is along the same lines as why we do not have access to music from Japan either. AVEX is finally releasing music on ITunes US (though not much of it is past 2006).

It's a shame, for there is definitely a marketplace in the states. I cannot say since I have never been to Japan, but are NA games and music (movies, etc..) accessible relative to their release here? If so, maybe this is a Japanese export issue. Either way, in today's internet global society, it seems way more complicated than it should be. Especially with two countries who have been through so much together.

 

p.s. US vs JP  in the world cup finals, you heard it here first!

I've often pondered why a lot of things don't get exported into the states from japan, be it video games, anime or w/e (where are the gundam games japan!?). I think its a combination of things like lack of advertising and localization issues when it comes to video games and just about anything else thats not anime. I mean take WoW for example too; for a game so popular its all over asia yet it's not in Japan.
