I love the game as well, just checked the anime adaption, the story has a pretty good pace so far, I love the VAs and wish the game had kept its original Japanese voice, ( That should be a rule to all Japan originate games, with exception of FF and Meatl Gear since they are the only two series that actually put in efforts for English dubbing, not to mention by keeping Japanese VA, the localization should be much faster.)

One thing surprises me through, Natalia is really cute in the anime. In the game, while I like Natalia, and she got a cute face, but but she just doesn't strike me the way Tear does, but for some reason, Natalia in anime completely won me over, Tear no longer dominates the fight for the leading gal of Abyss. (BTW, I still likw Tear more, but its turns to a pretty close fight)

I am also liking Natalia more in the anime than I did so in the game.

Same for Anise.

Personally my feelings for the characters aren't that different between anime and the game. Natalia I like just about the same though looking forward to moments later in the series for her. While I liked Tear it never really went far beyond handy character to have in a fight .

Looking forward to seeing if I feel too differently about characters after seeing the series. Be interesting for comparison at any rate.

Plus I want a thread for the worship of Jade Curtis, the god of TotA. Screw Julia, Jade is the one that deserves a religion in his name.
Sometimes, I wish I'm watching this with no knowledge of the game because it'll be easier to join in discussions like that. Still, like you, it'll be nice to compare differences. So far, not many noticeable ones I must say.

I second that. I'll join that religion for Jade.

For me, it's Tear and Anise. I always like Natalia. I really dislike Tear's English VA so hearing Yukana as Tear is so refreshing. I love Tear a lot more now. As for Anise, the seiryuu must be doing something like because it's from dislike to like now.

They spent longer in the factory than they did in Choral.

That's uh...

Okay...?

Basically everything that happened in there was new/fillerish stuff, including a Natalia flashback, Tear being scared, etc etc.

If I remember right most of factory scenes were just skits animated and not anything original (minus Natalia's past). In the end, it was just so they can stall and end it where the last episode should have.

Well, considering that they're blitzing through all of Zao, Chesedonia, and (probably ending at) Deo Pass next week, the pacing here seems a bit wonky.

I read the blog and saw the images for the episode. From what I saw, it shows how Ion was transported via Dark Wings car. Was happy to see that the spider boss was included in this episode, though I remember the creature being a lot bigger than what was dipicted in the images. I will have to see the episode when it comes out to see what else was added or subtracted. It looks like an enjoyable episode to watch.

So they finally

then? Good. Now people will stop complaining that it's hidden when it's shown in the opening. They did that in the game too.

I think they were desperate for another 30 seconds to fill and can only show Ion going "You are...!" so many times.

Arietta is only one of the six God-Generals, she's not going to appear all the time. She's my favourite, personnally (not counting Asch, of course =3), but if you don't like lolies, the others have an interesting story too.
I'd say at least wait for Akzeriuth, then decide whether or not you want to continue.
