Fight for love and vengeance. 

Wield megaswords and magic guns. 

Battle on top of airships. 

Summon powerful eidolons. 

Walk between dimensions.

And that's just the beginning.

Anima Prime is a tabletop roleplaying game that combines narrative freedom in character scenes and combat maneuvers with elemental powers, Soulbound Weapons, and the summoning of eidolons to allow you to create your own stories and action scenes rivaling those usually seen in video game cut scenes and anime. A flexible goal system lets you infuse any fight with meaningful story decision points and unlimited tactical options.

Thank you so much for making this available to all of us, Mr. Griffen. This is a great and light system for running anime style ttrpg. I love it.

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you're enjoying it :)

Hi! Can you upload the updated files also to Drivethru? I bought it there, so, I'd love to have them there too. Ok, I know, I could download them from here, but I don't like the idea to take them for free (and ruin your personal game statistics).

Thanks in advance!


Sure thing. They should be up there now :)
