In the myriad realms of imagination, there are many dungeons to explore, dragons to tame, and paths to find. Anime 5E helps you unlock the realms of fantasy to experience them all.
Welcome to Anime 5E – the fantasy role-playing game for all your anime and manga adventures, which builds upon the Fifth Edition rules of the world’s most popular storytelling game. Mark MacKinnon, creator of the critically acclaimed Big Eyes, Small Mouth anime role-playing game, brings a point-based balance to the standard Fifth Edition offerings – and then layers a wide selection of new Races, Classes, Skills, features, powers, game mechanics, and combat options on top of this foundation. Anime 5E is the beginning of a journey, so hold on tight as we welcome you to your next great fantasy adventure!
The Anime 5E Pocket Edition is the ideal entry point into the game for backers who are looking for a smaller, portable book format at half the price of the standard full-colour hardcover edition. Printed in the familiar manga-sized dimensions on a textured uncoated paper stock, the Anime 5E Pocket Edition weighs in at a hefty 384 black-and-white pages. Most of the content from the regular hardcover edition is included in this alternate format – including all rules, races, and classes, and monsters – using a slightly smaller font size and fewer illustrations. Chapter 12 from the regular edition, which provides player and DM guidance, has been omitted to keep the page count (and thus cost) lower. Use the Anime 5E Pocket Edition solo as your primary game book, or as an additional inexpensive reference copy for your gaming table.
