I was hoping IP is officially dead, since nobody bought neo.
Why are you bumping this thread after eighteen months..?

Did people not like Neo? I had the impression it was received favorably. (Much as I would like to play it, there's no way I would do so until it gets much, much cheaper – which is probably unlikely to ever happen.)

For that matter, did anyone here actually watch the anime?

It was. The game has really good reviews and fans really liked it. It's also true that the game unperformed at sales.
I did watch the anime, and it's not a bad adaptation, but the game is just so much better.

And yeah, ignore him. He's a troll.
