Good to see they're keeping the game VA cast as expected. Inoue Marina is peeeerfect for Alicia, and i wouldn't have anyone else voicing her.

Also the image is rather epic, and even though i'm playing the game at the moment, i'm used to the character designs.

Why is that pic of Faldio reminding me of Suzaku?

Inoue Marina: After Skip Beat, I'm convinced she can do almost any teenage girl type.

If you mean Suzaku from Code Geass, it's because the pose Faldio is doing is very similar to the one's Suzaku would usual do in these posters.

I'm actually kind of expecting some Faldio/Max Ho Yay.

I'd imagine that most of the female cast will make brief cameos or be minor characters at the very least. The male cast probably won't be so lucky. (rightfully so; most of the male character designs don't particularly stand out)

I'm glad to hear that Edy's popular. She's my favorite Shocktrooper. (though its kind of annoying that she sometimes gets lowered stats around Rosie)

Wow, awesome. Think anyone can translate the interview, or at least critical points in it? That'd be so awesome.

Well, I'm a bit disappointed with regard to that as well but the manga version apparently has extra drama subplots thrown in between the different recruitables. So maybe that's a model the anime version is also planning to follow.

The main game content might not be enough to fill up the entire length of the series.

I'd say there's to much in the game for the anime. Especially all the little sup-stories and development for Squad 7.

Still no word on episode number? Though judging from this, it'll probably be 13 (a shame, IMO).

Definitely not going to be 13 episodes. That's way too short for such a series. It'll probably be 26 episodes.

I think Faldio's probably going to end up deciding that he loves his country more than Alicia.
Spoiler for Why?:

I still don't dig the character designs. Welkin and Faldio looks about five times manlier in the game instead the anime. I shudder on the thought how they will do Max and Jaeger. They'll probably bring up a Schneizel designs for Max. About Faldio's character well at least it'll add up for the drama.

I have to say one thing though, they better put up Selvaria's nice racks like they did in the game. She's not my favourite character wise because I think she's horrible but still...

And as already stated, I don't like that they're going to add that facet with Faldio. Completely unnecessary, in my opinion.

Glad to see the VAs will be the same. I saw no problems with the ones selected.

And yes, adding Dallas would be very funny. Her knocked-unconscious phrase is even about her crush, in addition to her potentials.

Am I the only one who doesn't really like Alicia's anime character design? She doesn't look as girlish as she did in the game. She looks very... "hard"... in the anime.

I don't think we should judge after seeing just one image shot. Since it is animation, I would expect their looks to have differences in between episodes, however slight it may be.

I dunno, I sorta hope they don't go overboard with side-quests or the "minor" soldiers of Squad 7, mainly because I don't wanna see too much tangential filler. I think 13 episodes should be enough to cover the main arc as well as develop the main players in the story (Welkin-Alicia-Faldio, Rosie-Isara, Largo-Varrot, and Max's generals). There's already plenty of good stuff there, but stretching it out to 26 or more episodes would be sorta diluting it, IMO.

Truth be told so far I'm not liking the anime designs, and yes that also includes Alicia. Her designs looks much more friendlier looking in-game and match her friendly character. Here she look like a sadist and ready to blow up stuff like Jane Turner in game lol.

Then I again, I have to wait for the series to air before giving bad prejudices, but still...ick.

Well she is in the miuddle of a battle, but I can see what you mean. I don't really care as long as they're are similer enough. I mean I come to expect game designs and anime designs to differ since they usually always do.


As for the Faldio thing its a minor annoyance, but its hard to find any anime adaption of something that doesn't have a little original works added to it. I'm not that picky so I'll be fine with it as long as it doesn't totally destroy his character.
