With the massive popularity of Genshin I feel it's gotta just be a matter of time until an anime gets made of it. I guess it depends on when there's enough story to be able to make enough episodes/seasons without catching up too fast to the game and running out of content to adapt.

Edit: Missed this entirely yesterday; the Version 3.0 Special Program will air on August 13:

Yeah that animation for Sumeru was really great, liked seeing the fight between Cyno and Alhaitham briefly, wonder if that was training or genuine conflict, perhaps Dehya's involved too or just thrown in the middle to give her an appearance. Also cool to know Alhaitham seems to be a sword user, think I knew Cyno is polearm and of course knew what Dehya is.

Ah, the special program is tomorrow. Will catch the 5PM YouTube stream as I'll be at work and don't usually watch the Twitch one at noon.

I did mention this to DL, but dislike the fact the second event for Archipelago finishes this Sunday instead of when the main event completes, which would be right as 2.8 ends and the 3.0 patch takes place. Doubt I'll be able to get that event done on all three of my games, not even one at this rate since I've been procrastinating.

3.1 doesn't look to be that interesting of a patch for me other than the desert being added, which looks like it's going to be MASSIVE and I can't wait to see what kind of shit we find out there.

Character wise... meh. I'm a bit iffy on Nilou now because I've heard she's been pretty badly nerfed in the beta, and she's come limited to basically one team comp. So... if that ends up proving true, I may skip her for now so I can continue to save up for Nahida, and instead pull Nilou later down the road when she re-runs. I still love her design and want her for that reason, but with Nahida being right behind her, I may opt to skip.

Cyno is a definite skip and Candace is on his banner, so yeah... skipperino.

I look forward to seeing what our first Weekly boss of Sumeru will be though. If they follow the same pattern from Inazuma, then 3.1 should bring the first Weekly of the region.

Yeah looking forward to the desert. I'm slightly annoyed Candace is on Cyno's but it kind of ending up being obvious as they're based in that area and as far as I know are based in the desert while Nilou is in the nature side. Luckily I'm at early pity on all three of my accounts as I recently got a 5* on them (50/50 loss to Keqing then Kokomi for my main, Mona as the 50/50 loss on my EU but didn't mind, Ganyu for NA), so hope Cyno doesn't appear early when I try to get a C0 Candace at least. I'm not pulling on Nilou's either, would have if Candace was on there, then saving up for one of Nahida or Dehya, but definitely Alhaitham. Well unless Nilou's has some 4-stars I could get on my NA account.

I haven't been following what beta testers have been finding out, other than what's on GenshinLab for Nilou and Candace's details on what they'll have and need. Didn't know Nilou's been nerfed, what was she like before then? Absolutely broken or something?

Weekly Boss could be pointing to Scaramouche, unless that comes later in the Archon quest and we'll get another in a Character Quest again, or could be both Scaramouche and Dottore. Hoping one of them gets to bail and be used later though.

I kept forgetting to post this, but that discussion being had last month in this thread about how dope a Genshin Impact anime could be if the right animation team gets put behind it didn't leave us waiting too long for a development on that front:

I'm not familiar with any of the works of the studio working on the anime, but their production list is stacked with a lot of notable things and while writing this, I learned there was a trailer put out for this announcement too, although I'm not sure if Ufotable produced it or not. Maybe someone familiar with their style can tell, or if this trailer just looks noticeable different in style to the regular Genshin animated trailers:



Either way, this video is apparently supposed to represent the quality of the whole show, in which case it's going to look insane! Shock

The announcement was at the end of the 3.1 Special Program, I didn't know what it was at first until I saw Paimon then thought this can't be an anime announcement, surely not. Really was, so yeah the quality looks amazing. Unsure if I'll even watch it though...maybe depending on how it's distributed/availability. The major cutscenes in the game already look incredible, but the anime should give us a proper showing of telling the story in full instead of how it's been portrayed so far, which is running through the world at your own pace to in-game model non-voice over dialogue cutscene, with voice variant of that or a full blown dynamic cutscene. Wondering who will be picked as the main protagonist or will they somehow have both, as Aether and Lumine are shown together there.

I take it those two are consistently prominent OG's or something? I don't think I've ever actually seen them before now compared to a lot of the other characters in this game so it'll be interesting for me to find out that Aether and Lumine are actually more important than most of the others. XD

Yeah, they're who you start with at the very beginning of the game and you choose one as your avatar, they appear in the majority of the cutscenes/dialogue scenes regardless of if you have them in your team of 4. The other unchosen sibling appears later in the game, showing up periodically. They've shown up about 4 or 5 times so far not counting the introduction to the game.

Ah. Are they actually good characters to use or are they quickly pushed out by others that you get? My impression is it's the latter given how little I've seen or heard of them.
