Ummm~... I won't say it never happened before, but I haven't seen such an example enough times to actually find just being related as a death flag...

... who is like ...
In anime someone, who acts like he or she would be(not related by blood) or is(by blood) a brother, sister, mentor to the main character, has a death flag, because their death makes cry not only the main character, but also the audience and also makes the main character change something in his life.

I would still guess that she is probably talking about Welkin when she blushes. At least I'd like to think so, but it could really be just heartful talk.

Well on a beter note, at least they are not hugging or anything like that.

Who wouldn't give out a sqeak which cutting their finger like that? Give girls who actually would a credit, i mean not all of them are built up soldiers like Selvaria.

Is it me, or is the series trying a little hard to portray Selvaria as someone "inhuman"? I mean, balancing all that we know about her (from the anime and game), it's as if she's some kind of doll, as compared to a real person.

That's how she's supposed to be displayed, as a warrior and not a woman. You only get a little tiny bit of insight into her background in the game, so thankfully the DLC that was released a little while ago showed us a lot more.

So does this ep have any Welkin showing off his genious moments?

He reminds me of Dr. House...if any of you watch that show...always thinking about something else or on some other train of thought...then BAM! Gets an epiphany and solves the problem...

Sounds like none of that here though

We so need a 4-koma or something that has Gregor accepting Jaeger's offer.

Yes, I do want to know what can happen if Gregor said "Yes." Hmmm....

And to those who are wondering about Ramal, he has a surname.

Mmm ok I'm in the same boat as S_B on this one...We went from WWII to mysticism and magically operated doors?

I'd ask for explanations, but I'm fairly certain they'd all involve giant spoilers so I'll just go with it for now...I did enjoy the fact that Alicia calmed down abit this episode finally with it looking like others taking up her Tsundere responsibilities this time round.

Finally saw the episode. Half way through I was wondering how they managed to insert game-Alicia into the anime with barely any notice, but eventually her stupid tsundere anime version reasserted itself once the male tsundere left the group. Maybe they're following the conservation of ninjutsu principle except with tsunderes?

... really though, Barious doesn't need three episodes, and it's clearly looking like next episode will be slow as well.

What are the personality differences between characters in the game and anime? I didn't know there was even a difference until I read the previous comments.

First off, Alicia's more quiet, along with Faldio.

Time for my subbed review.
Spoiler for Episode 7, subbed:
A lot of exchanges of philosophy in this one. Definitely a plot-development episode. Not much to talk about.

Overall I thought it was a good episode, glad to see Alicia not acting like an airhead finally. She was a bit more like her game self this episode. Can't say there was a lot of character development though, but they do get into some of the history that will be important later on.

Next episode looks like Faldio and Alicia are getting trapped with each other when the ruins collapse. Flashback scene to Faldio's college days while they're waiting for rescue, hopefully we get to see some Juno action . Welkin also looks a little distressed, I think that's the first time he hasn't been in calm collect mode.

i would not call it alicia calming down but rather replacing an anime tsundere Alicia with game Alicia out of sudden. maybe thats where studio's originality reached its limits?

retarded and unlikeable Ramal is unlikeable and retarded. i just played this part in the game today, so it was cool to see the anime's rendition of it. hopefully Ramal will kick it soon. just too unlikeable. also, not enough of Alicia's funny faces in this one.

Thats because she seems to be a different Alicia in this episode. Much more like a game one - meaning less comedy (and funny faces due to her tsundere personality) and more brains.
