platoon leader if you want the right military position.

According to an interview posted here, they are doing exactly that...

Although it would not make much sense to me as in the game, the two rarely talked to each other. Never mind the fact that Faldio now has a pet boy.

I see nothing wrong with this being added, i mean there's already been quite a few changes already and they seem to be working out alright. Just look at the changes made to Alicia already.

At the end of the day they just want more drama, and this change is sure to sell.

Eh, the reason Welkin is an Officer is the same reason that Faldio is one. University doubles as Officer training for the Gallian Militia.

Also, I really wish that they wouldn't add any additional drama into the Welkin-Alicia pairing. Is it so much to ask that an anime doesn't inject a boatload of unneccessary WANGST into a fairly normal relationship?

When Welkin questioned the wisdom of making him a platoon leader, due to his inexperience, Eleanor replied that his actions in Bruhl more than makes up for it. Moreover, she also noted the fact that Welkin is General Gunther's son.

And let's remember this is still the militia, not the regular Gallian Army.

But it does not make a change in the chain of command and their leaders rights and responsibilities.

I hope I do get it right because I understood your posting that you differ between regular and militia officers. The officers draft is also possible for regular army joiners.

Also, keep in mind that all this "drama" stuff could be a very elaborate excuse to reduce battle scenes due to lack of money.

How about not even mentioning what you did? I mean even saying what you did is a spoiler.

I also think having Alicia interested in anyone else besides Welkin is dumb. I realize Faldio is "good looking" (he looks like he's from a whole other anime) but if this is just to make the certain actions taken by Faldio to add a sense of impact and "how could you?" feelings, it's unnecessary. The story played out in the game through a series of short cutscenes and it didn't need relationship triangles to be interesting. The Alicia "I like bread and secretly Welkin," and Welkin "I like bugs and secretly Alicia," formula worked well enough on it's own.

However add a Rosie shower scene or a Dallas/Romona make out scene and I'll forgive you

I just really want Selvaria to start having loads of screen time though to be honest.

People, could we please cut down on the game spoilers in here ? The thread is looking like more akin to an unfortunate minefield than anything else, and anyone who would want to discuss about the anime here and not get spoiled at the same time would end up largely disappointed. At least have the decency to use properly labeled spoiler tags when referring to game events. Thank you.

With all these Faldio and Alicia talk, I wonder what would happen to that pet boy of his...

I mean, they did give Faldio a pet boy...

The militia is like the National Guard in the United States. Even if Welkin does not have any experience in real military workings most other officers probably do not, either.

Faldio also does not have any experience but he was made an officer (okay, technically we don't know his backstory as well as Welkin's, but I get the feeling that he, too, is right out of University).

Spoiler for Spoiler:

Yeah i know, that was a great bit too, they could have cut 20 seconds of idel talking and put it in ¬_¬ this ep seemed abit rushed overall. Me starting to worry there gonna cram 18(5 bonus) chapters into 12-13 episodes. That and the next ep looks like its already starting some filler melodrama

Wont leave alot of time for "squad 7's R&R" >w>
