Exclamation Thank you lord for such a great ending!

OMG! I just finished it! THEY MADE MY DREAM COME TRUE!
Spoiler:


The battle was amazing! INCREDIBLE! BRILLIANT! Natalia's light arrows, JADE'S 4 SPELLS----------->EXPLOSION(FIRE), ICE ARROWS(ICE PICKLES RAINING DOWN), ENERGY SAP(I THINK IT WAS THAT lighting attack) AND INDIGNATION! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!! MY FAVORITE! I think that it is too bad he did not use mystic cage but oh well!

Anise's BLOOD MOON HOWL! NICE! NICE!

LUKE+GUY= GREAT SWORD FIGHTING!
MY LAST COMMENTS ARE: This is the best one of RPG I have yet seen in anime. My first one was Tales of Eternia BUT THIS BEAT IT BY 100%. Not only length wise but also action, story depth wise, magic and fonic artes presentation, monsters were nice but not enough of different types as much a the game, WORLD WAS GORGEOUS, machine design were good too, BAD WAS THE BLOOD CENSOR WHICH I FIND STUPID (they put some but censor it a little with color wise in mind) and SHOULD HAVE PUT MORE LOVE between characters other than the Tears x Luke thing or Natalia x Asch which not much happened other than feeling exchange.

SCREEN SHOTS!
ASCH/LUKE FUSION! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
Spoiler:


Tears is so happy her tears almost made T_T YES! I WAS HAPPY FOR HER!
Spoiler:


PART WHERE TEARS SAYS SHE LIKES LUKE!

Why did you come back alive, Luke?

Based on the theory of the contamination effect, it is Luke that is alive. Another big hint is that when Luke/Ashe appear, he told Tear it is because of our promise. Luke is the one who made the promise, so it would be him. Ask to why he sound like Ashe while it is Luke, it is simply. Luke body disappear and the forton enter Ashe body. So naturally it will sound like Ashe since it is Ashe body after all. AS to why it took 2 year, no idea but I guess it will take a long time for a dead body to regenerate to something.

As to why Tear sing during this battle? It is the same way as the game. They couldn't hurt Van at all so Tear has to use her final song to cancel out Van's power so they can beat him. Kept in him Van can take a hell lot more punishment since his body is no longer that of human.

His voice was already more Asch-like at the beginning of the episode. Actually, no, it started getting deeper at the end of the previous one.

why we are using spoiler tags here? but anyway, it seems that is Luke after reading everything. Asch just dies in the anime.

what did each anime character said to Luke after he announced he was leaving the party???

And so it ends huh...

Well personally I would say that they fused together rather than simply Luke taking over Asch's body hence I believe this Luke/Asch have the memories of both Luke and Asch, making him the ultimate being! The last part was a joke btw

I'll post my thoughts later when I get to it

Well, it's exactly what I expected it to be.
Spoiler:

I was also hoping for the "where are they now" montage long after the ED. They could have at least taken more liberties with that.

I definitely prefer the game ending to this one. The music choice i think was poor at the end. Should have been more dramatic. Other then that i liked this series and how it followed the story line. I do agree that the epilogue should have been expanded on more. The major reason why i watched this was to see how they would handle the ending, but it just ended up copying the game ending with a poorer choice in music.

from someone who played the game and followed the debate the other side of the argument is that Ashe made a promise to natalia as well ( to marry her as well as to come back alive before he goes off to hold that army). I am one who always thought it was luke, since ashe dies even luke feels his presence vanish, and that loreli just fused their bodies so luke could live on. As for the time skip it wasnt 2 years, i think it was just 1 if that all they really say is that its his coming of age ceremony. Tear also says she loves him before party ways. As for when the reunite he says basically the same thing. Tear asks why are you here, and luke replys cus this place has a nice view of hod and besides i made a promise then it ends the same way.


Oh and to touch on what someone said earlier luke and ashe do have different dominate hands Luke is left handed and Ashe is right handed i believe.
the final battle is better in the game as you have to finish van off with your special and i always thought tear singing the final hymn was a nice touch

It was 2 YEARS! I heard the NI SEN or SAI which means ni=2.

They didn't age. It was actually 2 days! (>_<)

Anyways...
Then you heard wrong. It's "ni NEN". Ni sen means 2 thousand or 2 lines or 2 whatever kanji sen is, and Ni sai means 2 years old.

I did not hear then saying 2 days and it would be impossible by logic with the way the vegetation grew.

I just heard it again and IT IS NI NENDO---------------->http://www.freedict.com/onldict/onldict.php. 2 years is what it means.

Bu-bu-but! They didn't age! (O_O; ) It is impossible by logic that they didn't age in two whole years! *tremble* *tremble* *shiver*
