But then that's just speculation on my part :-/.
I don't think it's speculation at all, otherwise that whole talk about Welkin's incomprehensible yet mostly on-point logic between Faldio and Alicia would have been somewhat misplaced. Welkin saw all the stuffed animal heads used as decoration while listening to the general's words and determined that the man was overarrogant and cocky with himself.

As for the supporting characters being used as props, it doesn't bother me right now. Fleshing out the more important characters first while it's still early in the series before getting the supporting characters is something I generally prefer. Of course, I haven't played the game yet, and I'm planning to get it this summer, so my mind might change.

I gave this episode an 8/10. It was an episode that once again highlighted Welkin's perceptiveness and showed the brute tactical force of the Empire.

Agree, a good episode on the whole.

Now I am seriously hoping for the next one to be a bit more loaded in the action department. Most battles have ended a little too quickly so far, IMHO.

I'm still quietly watching. Enjoyable even where disappointing, which is a heartening thing to be able to say.

I dont want her to get the secondary character treatment, shes an extremely important character in this series.
Indeed here's hoping she gets more screen time then she did in the game....

I've enjoyed this episode overall. Sure, it may look silly but the anime probably had to take some liberties with it. Lelou- I mean Maxmillian looks very intimidating and actually knows how to command his army. Alicia/Faldio will be short-lived though once we get to see the battles.

so, I see flags waving around Faldio. and what was with that blush when one of Faldio's subordinates saw him in the shower room? this militia doesn't seem like the type where a girl would lie to get in..

I'm not a big fan of this love triangle thing, but its something I can overlook since I know how its going to turn out anyways.

Do not confuse such a fabulous and glorious piece of art like Schneizel with some piece of trash who has an unnaturally elongated face and unfabulous shorter hair like Maximilian.

1st squad is Macho men.
Faldio is playing a matchmaker in this episode or just want to give Welkin's guardian position to Alicia (From 4ep. preview: "I'm his buddy, guardian and a busybody in general.").
Faldio is a lively character and he seems can be interesting.
Alicia's only purpose is to make funny faces as a character she isn't interesting.
I don't know what to think about bad guys except that they are bad.

You should play the game to notice that she is a major character,you should play the game is a lot better tan this 4eps.
I don´t know about the rest of you guys but this ep was the worst one at least for me.

I hope next one shows some action and we finally see Largo using the correct weapon.

Also I don´t like the changes that they have done to Alicia in general.

well....looks like Jane the psychopath shocktrooper won't be in the anime then......

i thoroughly enjoy this episode, taking a break from the actions.
Not much distortions, except Selvaria's opening sequence.

Good episode .
Oh god ! Maximilliam = Cesar -_-" . And why they put Lelouch's voice on this man ... bad character .
Funny episode with Alicia . Dunno why she's intimidate when she saw Faldio half naked ... don't imagine when she'll be at the pool or the beach .
Welkin is intelligent .
Damon is horrible .
Next episode show some battles !!
(and we got the typical huge boobs girl enemy Salveria )

who said he was a girl?



Hey, if they can have a stereotypical gay character in Squad 7, why can't they have a non-stereotypical gay character in Faldio squad?

its all "macho" isn't it?


oh yeah, anyone spot the mistake?

when alicia ask him to put some clothes on, he put on his shirt then his coat and you can see the collar of his white shirt when they switch to his face, but when we jump to the next scene he's just wearing his coat bare chested.

I guess he found the shirt too tight....or something...well alicia didn't mind this time...

In the OP, after the Edy moment, there's the moment with the guy that's obviously fawning over something next to two other guys with "oh boy..." faces. The fawner is Jann. He's slightly gay.

"Slightly" is a pretty weak word.

Even if Jane was in this, they probably wouldn't show us her blood thirsty ways, which would be a huge shame.

Yeah i agree. Jann is very much gay, and a huge Largo lover. :3
