Fanatical Tales of the Abyss fans, such as myself, can rejoice with the knowledge that the anime is not far off; the Sunrise handled production will air in October.
The cast looks to be the same excellent seiyuu as voiced the game, though further details are lacking. In particular it is not clear how the anime will relate to the events in the game, such as whether this will be a sidestory or a retelling of the rather epic game story. A Blu-ray release is also mentioned.
Via the official website. Here is another Tear picture to tide you over.
