Spoiler for OVA 2:


Other note:

The manga ends at 5 volumes, but it also contains a "EX" volume which are side stories involving various characters like Seles.

Even moreso now after DVD2, I wonder how far into the game the story will end. The storyline is not very far into the game's story at all. >.> There was no crazy timejump; the story picks up relatively soon after the end of DVD1. Like... maybe a day or two of travel later.

i don't have any clue how they were able to go so batshit in timejump, but it looks like it will be hell confusing like TOP OVA.
let's wait for the subs.
Well I guess Zelos is in so the spoiler I talked about before is going to be highly likely in the next 2 episodes

For your info, it was

Either of which would propose a great fight

*crosses fingers for presea appearance next volume*

Otherwise it was an OK episode...I can see where the anime team is doing the best they can to condense so much material, but it just leaves me continually longing for a proper 24 episode series.

I do greatly appreciate that they kept raine/refills personality quirks intact though.

I really enjoyed this ep. The animation was well done and musics were good. Even tho it felt a bit rushed it was still good. Now I'm getting my hopes back up!

Sheena looks pretty good
Well the fact they only have 4 episodes, they have to rush it a bit as the game was around 80 hours long

well plot wise it was around ~45 the rest was made up of side quests not really part of the main story. Who else made sheena loyd's soul mate when playing? haha

Ah I honestly think sheena might have been the very last character I tried to aim for highest affinity in all my playthroughs...I guess im just not as fond of busty ninja girls as others here are.

Im still holding out hope that genis uses some higher lvl magic...Or that will atleast get one unison attack.

OMG OMG me me!! i did it. Well mainly cuz sheena had a cuter personality than colette imo. Cept when sheena appears in the anime, she sort of loses her cuteness, which i mean, great that it shows she's not the same age as lloyd, but it kinda a bummer. But love the raine/refill moments as mentioned before also love...
Spoiler:

Can't wait for the next ep. Was sheena and zelos always in the OP? If yes, then my guess is presea and regal might no appear since they're not in the OP. Let's hope i'm wrong

I can kind of see how much stuff they are ripping out of the story, and while the OVA is still good, it just cannot be as in-depth and interesting as the original game.

Also animating some high lvl magic as many have mentioned would be really nice. Unison attacks would work too (By which I mean stronger ones than Cross Thrust )

Episode 3 basically only covers the Luin/Asgard Ranch parts. New ED this episode though.

I really, really, really wonder how they can tidily end this in 4 episodes. The ED animation is rather humorous.

look's like the OVA is going to end at the point when Collete becomes an Angel.

Nevermind! Episodes 5-8 have, apparently, been announced! No release dates yet, and the info is unconfirmed (found out via Wikipedia), but still, that relieves a lot of questions I had about the series ending in 4 episodes.

edit: apparently it was confirmed on the commentary CD which came with OVA3. Yay!

Heh, excellent.

This should solve the problem.

4 for one world, 4 for the other.

Well, they are still going to skip and modify though.
