The official Tales of YouTube channel has recently completed uploading all 26 episodes of the Tales of the Abyss anime adaption. Several Tales of games have anime adaptions, such as Symphonia and Zestiria. Believe it or not, they’re all pretty enjoyable for video game adaptions, making them ideal avenues for re-experiencing these classics under different contexts.
And the Tales of the Abyss anime is no different. Of course, nothing can replace the source material, but I’d argue that this anime is a pretty fair way to go through this title if the game isn’t an option for whatever reason. Unfortunately, the quality is only at 480p, but hey, it’s better than nothing.
Tales of the Abyss is my favorite entry in the franchise, and I think the last time I saw this anime was around 10-ish years ago? It’s been a while, for sure, so it’s about time I give this a rewatch. While I do that, I’ll continue hoping for a Tales of Abyss port on modern platforms because it genuinely deserves it.
You can access each episode with English closed captions via the official playlist. The anime’s trailers were even all compiled into one video too.

Tales of Arise advances the graphics with the new “Atmospheric Shader,” which presents the world as if it were a hand-drawn painting. Further, the combat has evolved, allowing for a better sense of spectacle and direct player feedback based upon their actions. Finally, the graphics, combat system, characters, and story combine to present a vivid and realized world that the developer hopes will immerse players.
