Micro Transactions Pay Big Dividends

Cygames anime production department

Cygames has me thinking that maybe P2P games aren't totally evil after all with the anime adaptation of their IPs Rage of Bahamut and The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls. Now they're putting their ill-gotten gains to good use by establishing an anime production division that will create both adaptations and original works. Move over light novels, mobile games are the source material of the future!
