Well the episode is quite a welcome because you don't see such interactions with all squad members in the game. at least not where I am currently in the game

since nothing much will happen between alicia and faldio anyway other than "that" event, i just look past it whenever the studio tried to make a suggestion.
Pretty silly really, but then again, I tend to look past a lot of things just to enjoy the ones I like in the series. I watch a series to enjoy the parts I like, and won't be going into the negatives unless I am writing a review or it's too much. So far, I am just enjoying the ride.
And glad that Marina has more screen time.

I'm not too sure. It is very easy for the anime team to come up with something radically different from the game storyline.

Alicia proves that she is annoying again.
Marina is the only one who said the truth about Welkin.
Faldio is not only a matchmaker for Alicia and Welkin, but he is also a matchmaker a for his macho men too (that's why he asked Irene to interview his squad: "There are lots of nice looking men in the 1st squad").

I'm in this camp, too. I think it's good that they have some light-hearted bits early on in the story, and I quite enjoy them. I imagine that, like most RPG-based stories, things will get more serious and dire as we get closer to the end, so I sort of take the fun times while they last. Plus, it's blatantly obvious that the interactions with Faldio will only serve to strengthen Alicia's relationship with Welkin in the end (since they've made it clear this anime is focusing on that relationship/dynamic and not on the war itself). I have no idea why people are so up-in-arms about this, but maybe this is just one of those cases where not having played the game works in your favour. From my perspective, the way they're playing this is working quite well to give us insight into what Alicia sees in Welkin (i.e. that she's falling in love with him both despite and because he drives her crazy).

I also want to remind everyone, referring to what happened yesterday, to not even bother replying to trolls. Just report and let it be dealt with in due time. I know it's tempting, but yeah...

I'm torn to whether I give it a 10/10 for being the great ep it is or 9/10 for not having my Selvaria not join in the shenanigans
...I guess I'll have to wait for a stupidly entertaining OVA to show its head

haha well putting that aside I enjoyed the ep alot, its good to see the crazy antics of the squad.

seems Welkin isn't totally clueless about women after all, he's able to discern that a woman's real weapon is dangerous indeed

Irenes weapons aren't dangerous... Selvarias are

Are they important to the story? Looks to me like they are grunt soldiers who never die. It'd make sense to build up a few characters if they play a big role in the story later on...but having all these randoms show up for an episode here and there slows it down in my books.

I mean keep em there...give em a few lines here and there, but by the end of the day, I ain't going to remember their names. Just leave em in the backround to take up space and I'm fine with that.

Can anyone remember the name of the losers in any event in the Olympics? Nope. You may remember the top 3 but the rest were useless and will never be heard from again...till they do something important in life.

Largo, Isara, Rosie and also Faldio are relevant the others are optional but as they are part of the game story it is nice to give them at least in the anime a bit more life.

Well you're right, they're not exactly important for the story. Having them take an active role is mostly candy for those who played the game and thus got to appreciate those characters.

And you know what? I want my candy!


Besides, Edy, Homer, Jann and Marina are in the squad, and Karl being there hints at a later arrival. If it's what I think it is, we might get an episode where they're not just side characters.
We can all dream can't we.

For the gamers out there, did you notice Kreis wasn't introduced yet? Wonder how they'll pull it out before Marberry Shore.

They don't need to make them central characters to the story, but I was happy to have one episode where we at least get an impression of what these characters are like instead of them just being cardboard cutouts in the background, which is what they essentially were up till now.

QFT, Barbobot. Though I'll love it if they make an episode dedicated to The Edy Detachment.

I was still disappointed for lack of "desu-wa". Plus, this "desu wa", if it even existed, wasn't the one I hoped for (voice actress). Rosie's singing voice was kind of atrocious here; anime-only fans may be surprised once we reach a certain episode, if the anime production inserts a certain song for that episode. At least they somehow made it more apparent that Aisha is 12.

Also, I laughed out loud when I heard a certain track from the game play during Alicia's Ellet-hate thoughts. For a hint on what track I'm talking about: "FALDIOOO!" *Welkin PAWNCH!*

Well considering next episode is Barious Desert and ep 7 is titled Darcsen Calamity I'm expecting some more racial tension. But since ep 3 it seems they decided to go the route of just not really having Rosie and Isara interact as opposed to bring up the racial issues.

It was also only two or three scenes where rosie admits that she dislikes the Darcsens.
Nonetheless she

1.) has to do what Welkin said, which means she has to cooperate with the Darcsens and

2.) She is a soldier where the Squads pride is over internal or personel interests when it comes to Squad brawls or competitions.

She still dislikes the Darcsens.
