Isn't this a game?! And didn't ATLUS distribute this?

Does this scream Steins;Gate to anyone else?

I was going for Persona (more specifically the Shin Megami Tensei Series, but you get my drift). The art seems similar too.

You are all correct! It was a game, and now it's going to be a very distopian anime. I can't wait. All aboard the hype train!

Synopsis

“Break your ideal self and return to the hell that is reality…”

There is a beautiful singing voice that reverberates all across the whole town. Daily life continues to flow calmly in this town where it seems the tremendously popular idol “μ” watches over everything.

Ritsu Shikishima is a first-year student at Miyahi City’s Kishimai High School. Blessed with an aptitude for sports as well as good grades, he’s rich in friends. Smack dab in the middle of his youth, he lives a very fulfilling high school career.

Time passes, and now it is time for the second-year entrance ceremony. The boy that ascends the stage as the new student representative turns out to be someone who should never have been there in the first place.

Three Episode Impression

Ritsu is enjoying his school life and has many friends that he gets along with. That is… until a student ceremony where a popular virtual singer, µ, appears. She sings a song but rather than entertaining, it turns people in the audience into monsters. But not all of them, only some. Ritsu manages to escape while wondering why only some people seem to be turning into monsters while only a few are left unfazed. Ritsu goes into a deep psychological explanation while he is looking into µ’s influence. He is saved by Shougo and gets away rather than getting an explanation. As both Ritsu and Mifue are trying to figure out what is going on, both explore the city further and realize that they are locked in this strange fantasy world. Mifue then makes it into a cafe to try and look for her mother who disappeared, but it’s a trap for people with ugly hearts. It’s all to bring Mifue to their side under µ. The world created by her is a world where your dreams come true.

Caligula is puzzling but it’s a lot of fun trying to watch Ritsu say ‘I’m not losing my mind, the world is.’ It creates a lot of mayhem and confusion. Watching to see what people survive through this weird phenomenon is interesting. We are looking forward to more development and character depth. Here’s to hoping that it all works out and makes a good story! Fans of the Persona series will love the feel of this since Caligula is about being trapped in another world and trying to break out by realizing that you are in a fake world.
