Our Dwarves Are All the Same: They're called Earth Sprites here, and are still a martial and somewhat serious species who live in the mountains and mine its depths for precious minerals and gems, plus knack for mechanical engineering.

Took a Level in Badass: The Hero finally gets a 5-star card version with book 2, while Kain, Marina, and Michidia gain Ultra-Rare 4-star versions, reflecting their increased confidence and experience they gained during the first campaign against the Black King.
Several other characters gain an upgraded version in book 2. Alright, because the anime doesn't give any context, and various synopsis' beyond "This is an adaptation of a game" definitely don't help, here's the story of Chain Chronicle in a nutshell. The world has the looming threat of blackness threatening to cover the world in its evil. The Black King of all of this is the source, and it's up to Yuuri aka the player character given a face to stop him.
Along the way, you meet a girl named Phoena who has lost her memory carrying a book known as the 'Chain Chronicle', and a sprite named Pirika, as well as various other characters that you'll meet through the use of gacha roll. So now that you've gotten your merry band of RNG rolled units, fight through hordes of nameless enemies and fight the Black King.
That was a quick rundown of the start of Chain Chronicle. The start of the anime is a bit more complicated. The anime starts at the end of the story that I explained above and eventually leads into the second half of the story where the situation of the world is dire, and Yuuri must find his bearing and return to fight the Black King again. The initial problem here is the assumption that the viewer knows what the hell is going on at the start. The show thrusts you into the action without any word of warning, before continuing on with a journey that was started without the audience even knowing.
I'm not sure what went through the creators' heads when they started to make this, because everything from the world to what's happening is made to feel already established some time previous when it's barely even past episode two.
Another issue is the pacing. The beginning is very sluggish, as the show inches its way to making any form of progress before speeding up through the plot through the use of deus ex machina in order to make any form of progression happen, and the end is very fast paced as it tries to rush itself to the end.
This is due to the fact that the series has its characters in the majority of its episodes just travel from one place to another with the occasional conflict in between to make it feel like there's something actually happening, before creating a large total conflict to make it seem like everything is on the line. This, combined with the generic plotline of a hero and his band of friends fighting the evil king at the end of the journey, makes the whole viewing experience feel bland and boring to watch.
Light of Haecceitas is a mishmash of fantasy tropes traveling long hours in a fantasy setting with fantasy characters fighting the big evil fantasy guy at the end who wants to destroy everything because people suck and he doesn't like it.
Its message is typical shonen friend crap, its plot is predictable, no one that matters dies surprise surpriseand it's just Fantasy characters with shonen tropes! Yeah, that about sums them up. As the player character tasked with being the player's in-game representation and by 'recruiting' people through the use of in-game microtransactions that may or may not give you the character that you want oh how I feel that painYuuri is He fights for his friends, on the side of good, and halfway through the series, doubts himself and manages to pull off an extremely 'meh' character change that doesn't amount to anything in the end.
Aram is the other main character in this series. Despite having a character design that I'm actually quite fond of, Aram's character leaves a lot to be desired. He's basically a brasher version of Yuuri, as he holds the same morals and ideals as his friend. Does this make him a better character in any way? Does this make him interesting?
Will we be moving on to our last character? Then there's Phoena who's literally just there. Phoena doesn't really play much of a big part in this series and is more or less there because she's the heroine and holds the Chain Chronicle, the brick of text this series is named after. She plays a bit like a damsel in distress as she cannot fight and is stuck to the role as that one girl who screams out the protagonist's name whenever the situation for them looks dire, and only becomes relevant to the series when the book she clutches to her chest is involved.
Every other character is just one fantasy trope after another. The brave knight, the fallen knight, the holy queen, the evil bitch who's basically naked, the healer, the archer, the big scary evil guy who turns into a dragon at the end why is this a common tropethe good dragon, the songstress, old sages, pervy sage, various mages, weaponmasters, someone who actually is naked they even point this outthe conquerer guy, etc, etc.
