Should be interesting to see what situation Welkin gets stuck with.

Could care less about Alicia and Fabio...

maybe in a juicy plot twist welkin gets caved in with selvaria :)

Shiroth 2009-05-23 15:56

Looking forward to see what background material we see on Faldio. We didn't get anything like that in the game, so it's very much welcome here.

Ice-CooL 2009-05-23 16:02

Finish watching the RAW, no Faldio background, its pretty much Faldio talking about Welkins past to Alicia (Welkin and girls). AliciaxWelkin shippers will be very happy with this episode.
next episode will be almost completly about Selvaria...:D

hamstar 2009-05-23 17:04

selvaria pretty much ruined my suspension of belief in this episode. I could tolerate the ancient temple, the frogs, everyone surviving the collapsing rubble etc but the whole selvaria blocking the bullet with her sword then walk off...no. Hopefully there is a reasonable explanation that can make sense of it, but i doubt it.

Don't get me started. I could very easily ship that couple. :heh:

She is hot hot hot

Because she is epic. That's the only explanation you need.

Talk about it.... I guess it is because she is a Valkyrian, but still... And it doesn't help that the preview shows her going dragonball or basara and a bunch of ninjas. :heh:
(-_-)

ls that guy with selvaria could he erm what's his name be from the selvaria dlc episode?

justinstrife 2009-05-23 18:46

Welkin comes through when the chips are down. He's too cool for Alicia. :heh:


Just watched the raw. A little too much talking for my limited Japanese. Have to wait for the subs to understand better.

yezhanquan 2009-05-23 20:18

Selvaria is probably going to go down as one of THE characters associated with Ohara-san for the rest of her career. Traditional magic witch? Yuuko. Physical "witch"? Selvaria.

Key Board 2009-05-23 22:56

Hey, that new Imperial soldier...

Isn't that Karl from the Selveria DLC? Or whatever they call him in the US version

edit: his US name is Johann

Even though they're both supposed to be the main protagonists, their presentation of the two has been really lopsided. Alicia gets in the short end of the stick and unfortunately her character is pissing some viewers off (not me so much).

While I sincerely enjoy her facial expressions and comical reactions to Welkin (love the VA whose from the Minami-Ke series), there needs to be more to her; more reliability please! Or is her purpose to simply observe the resourceful male protagonist and gradually fall in love with him?:rolleyes::eyespin:

Even though they're both supposed to be the main protagonists, their presentation of the two has been really lopsided. I believe your statement is a good reflection of this poor portrayal. Alicia easily gets the short end of the stick in terms of usefulness and her character has been increasingly annoying some viewers (not me). In short, they aren't doing her any justice considering her lead status. I'm not asking that she turn into a hot, sexy human tank like Selvaria either. Something closer to Isara maybe...?

While I sincerely enjoy Alicia's facial expressions and comical reactions to Welkin (I love the VA since the first time I heard her was in the Minami-Ke series), there needs to be more than that; more reliability please! Or is her purpose to simply observe the resourceful male protagonist and gradually fall in love with him?:rolleyes::eyespin:

EDIT: To be fair though, her general demeanor in episode 7 (i.e., baking bread for the soldiers, teasing Ramal, etc.) was a nice, relaxing deviation from the usual "gotta keep watch of Welkin's oddball behavior". They gotta mix it up more.

Yeah, I feel the same way as you. Guess it can't be helped, after all there are pigs with wings.... For some reason, I can't really pinpoint a bad guy in this series. Misunderstanding? Both are good? Anyways a Selvaria and Welkin combo would be interesting. Who was that guy in the preview of 9? The one that looked like Welkin?

Yeah looks like it'll be Johann. So my dream of seeing the DLC animated is a go.

Deathkillz 2009-05-24 07:46

Well...if you haven't noticed Selvaria glowing and all.
In the end, this still is a fantasy story no matter how much realism you put in it (eg Utawaruerumono) and if you can have ancient temples that activate using blood, then what's wrong with super human bullet slicing powers :rolleyes:
The name "Valkyria" isn't just for show at least.

Nothing much for the ep itself being a big escape but I can't wait for next episode seeing the preview. Selvaria <3

kalbron 2009-05-24 07:48

Having seen the screens of the raw I have to say... wait, what? Where's my battle for the Barious Ruins?! It doesn't even seem to be in the preview!

Pfft. Let down. War anime without the battles except where it's easy to animate...

Westlo 2009-05-24 08:58

Well the director said he wouldn't be animating many battles due to the cost and so he decided to shift things around which is why the content has been like it has. Still I thought this was an important battle in ways so it's disappointing.
