I'm...generally not sure if this is even something worth looking into. The game's name is apparently 'Rice Ball' (as that's what Onigiri translates to, at least through my understanding) So it feels like someone's trying to grab the anime market without respecting much more than the face elements (From what I can tell, mainly fanservice) or being a part of the fanbase themselves.

For the most part, I'm probably sure I won't play it at this point, as I've decided not to get into MMOs until someone gets a full revamp of the quest system to be more than a grinding wheel. Is this actually something that can be looked at, or is it just a standard cash grab?

no clue. It is probably a play on words though. Like Ogre/demon cutter. Though they probably have something to do with the rice balls...

I haven't played it but as a MMORPG veteran, it's not worth it.

The games that Crunchyroll should advertise is either ArcheAge or Black Desert Online.

Don't translate it as "rice ball". It is the same play on words as Roronoa Zoro's "onigiri". "Oni" as the common demon theme you see often, and "kiri" (becomes giri in combined words) means cut. So separately it stylistically means "demon slash", but the term becomes funny since "onigiri" is also plainly a food item.

I for one plan on giving it a try, it looks like the devs have put a lot of effort into it despite it being visibly not as polished as some that have been around longer (well, effort for assumed low experience / small team). I enjoy indirectly supporting Crunchyroll by supporting their sponsors. Also if you navigate through the ad they have two short OVAs for Onigiri, sexy fanservice.

Also, Milky Holmes has some collaboration promotion with the game.

Doesn't look very good I'll be honest.

I shall stick with Archeage and Guild Wars 2 for my MMO fix.

Here's the official website if you're interested. It's already out btw, although I don't think it looks very interesting, but you guys can check it out yourselves.

Ehh, it doesn't look that interesting to be honest. I saw some gameplay and it doesn't look that good. I still might check it out and try it though.

I like the look of the environments a lot but the rest of it I honestly have no interest in.

It's a pretty good game since it's brand new. People shouldn't compare Onigiri to games that been out for over a year. The beta has only been open for a few months before it was released so of course it wouldn't look that good to people that plays games that's on another level. Anyways in my opinion, It's a good game for anime style players and game beginners.

I was seeing this ad a lot so I was trying to look into it, but it just seemed so fan servicey.

Nitpicking, but Oni are actually a type of Yokai. They are thought of as demons, trolls, or ogres though.

I did carefully describe "demon theme" instead of directly calling them demons in an effort to cover all ends inclusive of those who are not the target of my explanation. I failed, but I can probably choose even more carefully since this type of explanation is often needed.

I assume those who do not guess that "onigiri" is some type of wordplay might not know the scope of what is a yokai. Needed to keep it simple, else there is more to correct.
