So is this offically released in stores yet or is it still digital only open Beta? I'm only asking as it looks like something i'd like to get but i don't have a bank account. so i'd have to purchase it from my local hobby store?

seems to be a very interesting and fairly robust system hack for 5ed that isn't quite what i expected, but it is neat. however off the cuff i can say its not well balanced for me "out of the box" when the point system lets you give a bonus/penalty to AC and Proficiency Bonus that are weighted the same as vastly less mechanically important things like throwing distance and bonus languages.

it has a lot of warning that the group needs to come to concessions about relative power level, so this idea of balance isnt exactly unintended. but honestly that isnt a selling point of a paid game system for me, especially when this game itself says core 5ed isnt that well balanced. but D&D has always had the same group decision making in forming the party to balanced out with certain roles.

regardless, its really fascinating to see 5ed dissected into near GURPS'ian levels of point buy. the breakdowns are interesting even if i heavily disagree with the actual math at times. so despite...See more

Are you new to RPGs that you find 5E to be math heavy?

Hello, is there a Mecha section I'm missing somewhere in the book, or an additional Anime 5e product that contains it? If not, which BESM 4e product would I want to look at to work on cross-referencing with the old BESM Stingy Gamer Edition/D20 Mecha for converting some rules for mechs and robots into the game? Or would you suggest just using the D20 Mecha with a grain of salt and carefully checking point values and bonuses on a case-by-case basis?

Edit: I found the Adventuring Accessories! I'm assuming that's what I'm looking for! Glad to see this game still in production, some of my best old memories in gaming are from the D20 BESM, I'll be sure to check out the tristat system in the future. Keep up the awesome work!

Hi David. Mecha are created using the Anime 5E Item rules now (page 105). Examples can be found in the Anime 5E Adventuring Accessories digital expansion ( The more detailed d20 Mecha rules for BESM d20 could still be used, though the Point balancing may need to be adjusted/converted.

Are there plans on making it a pack for websites something like roll 20, etc?

We are still exploring how to implement Anime 5E on Roll20 and other Virtual Tabletops. Of course, Anime 5E rules can be integrated with standard Fifth Edition VTT offerings currently available.

So this is the successor to BESM d20 (which I thoroughly enjoyed:))?
Customer avatar
Dyskami P January 19, 2022 4:05 pm UTC
Effectively, yes, Anime 5E is to Fifth Edition what BESM d20 was to Third Edition. But we believe that Anime 5E is a significantly stronger product.

I did some checking, and my note that I left is invalid. Sorry if anyone received a notification on this issue.

Yes, Rank 6 Immunity costs 18 Points. Not every flexible Attribute is appropriate for every game or campaign, but it fits well with many types of fantasy anime. If you're following the recommendations in Table 01: Character Benchmarks (page 20), Level 1 characters can't have an Attribute above Rank 4 without DM permission.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
