Fun to see a speedy tank actually work since in real life, they were far too light armored and the battlefield too uneven to take advantage of. Only makes sense it would work in urban warfare way better. Welkin and crew are lucky to be alive and they don't really realize it.

No. No she wasn't. And I'm not complaining either. Especially since they also gave us more Edy love by the looks of it.

they apply the Company of Heroes tactic quite well, outmaneuver other tanks and hit them at the back/on the side where armor is thinner

I am enjoy 2 eps a lot, pretty cute animation and the story line is getting more interesting.

Well, no. In that image she's the equal of Selvaria and that's never been true.

Yeah, the front turret look like StugIII but the chassis look like Panther and turret is looked from flank / rear is similar a MBT.

Was she popular in Japan or something? Out of all recruitables to pick, they pick her. Unless they're trying to make some sort of commentary...

lol i used her too she didnt cause any any problems throughout the game. i liked using scouts especially when they had their nade upgrade.

also episode 2 was pretty awesome. wasnt expecting people to actually die but guess it's more realistic that way

Dead on. Same cannon mount, same modded panzer 3 chassis, same turret structure. Never even occured to me to look among the mobile assault cannons instead of tanks.

I used Freesia as my backup scout all the time. She doesn't really have any downsides like Susie and she had the 3rd best Evade in the game. Plus she looks the best of all the Scouts.

I highly doubt we see Freesia in the anime but I would love it if she even had a cameo for a few seconds.

I'm actually hoping for a well worked out opposite.

Sticking to what the source tells you works for manga and novel adaptations, because those re-tell the story in a different medium. Valkyria Chronicles, on the other hand, is already pretty much an anime on its own, what possible motivation would I have for watching this if the anime is done one-on-one? I'd replay the game again if I wanted to see everything happen.

So far they've only turned away slightly, but with enough twist to make you go "Ooh, I wonder what's going to happen next?" I'm hoping they continue that trend in a well worked out fashion.

Exactly, mate.

I've played the game so much I could just about quote the game off the top of my head from start to finish and the last thing I want is an exact retelling of the game.

The anime has also allowed a few more interesting sides about the characters to be explored.

Going from what the game portrays with Alicia being one of the Bruhl Town Watch Captains, you'd thing she was someone important but in the anime she's only a small cog in a big machine.

Just all the little things that are familiar but still different. I mean we have Susie appear in the first five minutes of the anime and it fits. Not to mention she's one of the better looking girls in the game =D

Overall I'm pretty happy with the anime. My only gripe is the firearms have been drawn very badly. I can recognize the weapons but they're just represented so inaccurately.

I still can't get over how cute they made Alicia... When she hits the radio, ah man I've got to make a gif of that.

Her "Whatever! Just beat them!" face was adorable as well.

Concerning the quality, I think we're seeing a classic example of "don't mind the quality, we'll fix it with the DVD's" here.

Hmm.. Finally saw ep. 2 and I think it was an alright episode, for some reason there was something nagging in me when the mill got destroyed. x_x;; IIRC there were civilians that got killed or was it by the mill. Anyway I can't wait for next ep. with Squad 7 and I saw Karl and Jann. Too bad I didn't see Nadine... perhaps I missed her :x

I think Alicia is pretty much the same with the game, can you give an example?

Good Anime. I will follow the Anime, because Hōko Kuwashima (my favorite VA)

But I'm sad because she not making the voice of Alicia.

I hope for more participation of Isara Gunther in all episodes.

Ohoho I quite like the white haired nee-san's chara design in some of those images...Strange she I don't remember her catching my eye quite as much in the OP/ED.

Hopefully if the show does well they'll make a proper figure of her...Not terribly fond of trading figures.

I'll just pray Sega doesn't do it...They put out an Alicia one with a rather horrid face last year...

Spoiler for Alicia PVC:

I have a couple of the trading figures, i saw that PVC one on ebay of Alicia, I deemed it terrible. Atleast when you have a small trading figure you can give it some slack for not being accurate because its small, but that PVC one, the face is just all wrong >_>
