Good for you, hope you know that there are 3 primary endings.

Anyway, theres not much to say about the novel, some author got a hold of the license. Its only based on the first game though. Its not done yet as far as I know. I stopped reading it when I couldn't stand the butchering of the characters anymore.

Unfortunately, I don't have the Wii so I couldn't get it even when I wanted to...

Shame really, just when I was getting into the Tales series from Vesperia and Abyss... Emil and Marta's character designs adds to the bonus for me.

It is a shame, a damn shame! Also Rie (VA for Shana) is Marta's VA. well in the japanese version...

I really want to see the relationship scenes for Sheena and Presea its my main motivation for this game XD

Yeah, I'm all over this, though I'm not to enthused about the VA changes, esp Lloyd. Scott Menville was excellent as Lloyd. And I'm tired of hearing Bosch in leading roles >.>.

Yeah, they were my favs too . I doubt I'll get to see some Genis/Presea or Lloyd/Sheena love-love, but I'm still looking forward to seeing what they are up to after the events of the original game.

From my understanding theres no GenisxPresea. But we do get LloydxPresea and LloydxSheena. So, I'm a happy man

Ah~, then that's okay. Ratatosk's story isn't all that interesting, anyways. And if I want to know the original (as in, how the game portrayed it) story, I can just watch the play videos. Saves money and time. And it's in the original JP.

There is Genius x Presea, one-way though.

lol, of course theres always ways to get something you want XD

I never liked the idea of GenisxPresea... Presea is still 28 well 30 mentally and chronologically. And will always view Genis as a little kid. Having Presea like Genis is like saying she's a shotacon.

Oh and I never knew about those... hmm interesting...

You lack the love to truly understand. You thought they were perfect for each other, then the moment the true age thing pops up, all of a sudden it's wrong. Age has no factor when it comes to love. Plus, she's a loli and he's a shota. It's a perfect match!

You're one of those Aesthetics people huh? I prefer chemistry and theres zero chemistry between those two.

This has got to be my most favorite conversation between Lloyd and Presea.

Presea: ...It's such a good feeling to be able to move by my own will.

Lloyd: Yeah. I know what you mean. That's how it should be, but Cruxis Crystals and Exspheres make possible what should be impossible.

Presea: Because they're sad, they attach onto someone and fuse with them. A lifeless being is...always lonely.

Lloyd: Lonely?

Presea: Because, when they fuse with their host, the two become one. And then it becomes sad and lonely again.

Lloyd: When you put it that way, I guess you're right.

Presea: They are just like me...always alone.

Lloyd: You have me, right?

Presea: ...What?...

Lloyd: I promised I wouldn't leave you behind.

Presea: ...Yes.

Lloyd: We'll always be together, the two of us. And since there's two of us, we'll never be lonely, right?

Presea*smiling! An actual, huge, smile!*:

You get to choose Lloyd's soul mate again in this game. So you get treated to extra scenes.

Hah?! Seriously? 'Cause I haven't seen any scenes like that. You don't even get to use Lloyd for most of the game... (-_-)...


It's amusingly strange... Genius's Hi-ougi has been reduced to a puny Indignation, but he still can use a basic chanting spell called Indignation...

Yup you get to choose Lloyd's soul mate again, and its Flanoir again!

Indignation still looks cool, at least from the videos I've seen. I'll judge for myself after getting the game.

Spoiler for condense convo:
But, I mean, people always pair the Tales of casts to pairs within their own group, and I shall name all I know for my own amusement: Cless/Mint, Chester/Arche, Reid/Farah, Melody/Keele, Lloyd/Colette, Kratos/Raine, Genis/Presea, Sheena/Zelos, Luke/Tear, Guy/Natalia/Asch, Anise/Jade. ToV it's all questionable with all the yuri undertones, but that's a different story. It's customary. Oh, i guess that means I am a man of aesthetics, huh ?

Isn't that good? I mean, Indignation is like the best spell ever to grace the Tales of series(or at least the most popular, even if it's because of the GBA ToP dub >.>), and he can cast it in TWO DIFFERENT WAYS!?!? Maybe I'm just a fanboy >,<.

On an entirely different note, I was thinking of trying to get through the game w/o the monsters in the party, if possible, even if I'm depriving myself of an good piece of the game. Well, I'll see how it is when I actually get the game.

LIES!! The LOVE was THERE!!! It was there even in the anime version(though greatly condensed). I know Arche was rather loose, but that stuff with Chester was def love-love by the end. I even remember Arche saying she'd meet him in a hundred years. Are you telling me that's just her being fickle? I can't remember Cless's and Mints that much though, since Cless was a pretty straight-forward guy, he wasn't as memorable char-wise.

Er... don't you know what "Canon" mean? It means that they are actual couples that can't be disputed... your response confused the crap out of me... >_>

OMG, I never knew ! Honestly, I've never looked up the definition of it, just went by the context of the sentence and always thought it meant "it's there only for the sake of the plot", which would mean that there was no reason given to them to love each other. My bad .
