"The Atelier video game franchise has been around for over ten years with a new title being produced nearly every year since it began. As such it came as something of a surprise when an anime adaptation of Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky was announced. This is largely due to the fact that the anime would be adapting material that happened to be the second game in a trilogy, skipping out on details from the first title Atelier Ayesha. Despite being a strange title to choose as the series’ first foray into anime, is Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky worth it?"
