Well, the popularity of CLAMP's canon is bigger than Blassreiter, and we all know that if the rest of XXXholics is going to be animated, Ohara-san would have some very amazing lines. As for VC... I don't know. Still a toss up.

Awesome

Awesome.... I didn't know Welkin had that sincereity to admit about the happiness of that girl. I thought he'd just get distracted by some bug and run to the wedding altar lol... I wonder who the glasses guy was lol, lucky dude (or dumb Welkin, but hey I'm rooting for Alicia, thanks to the game):

Looks like next week we're getting the DLC animated! Looking forward to the "lecherous pig"-slap scene . Johann is like my favourite character.

Oh I forgot she voiced another Beatrice in Blassreiter, the Beatrice I'm referring to is Beatrice The Golden Witch from Umineko. I'm fairly confident this will be her career defining role... and a challenging role to undertake as well...

While the seiyuu lovers are looking at Ohara, I think Inoue was awesome this week.

She makes the optimism shine through, and her voiced reaction to good ol' Welkin near the end of the ep is near-classic.

"Haah!!?"

Erm, sorry to burst your bubble though it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

Even though it was anime original, the flashbacks show us the type of strong character Welkin is, and i have to applause that coming from material not found in the game. Makes me all the more excited regarding what else we shall see from this adaptation --- starting with next episode.

& i must say, i'm loving the new piece of music used for the scene when Faldio and Welkin were getting ready for the wedding. Fitted perfectly with the scene.

I find it funny that even the demon general respect Welkin's ability then the people in his very own army. Which is just like Legend of Galactic Hero where Young is often dissed by his commander in the beginning but his enemy fear and respect his ability.

Took me a bit to watch the raw, but it was worth it for the developments.
Spoiler for Episode 8:
In all, I thought this episode was quite good, but not epic. Lots of stuff to apply for Alicia/Welkin shipping.
Spoiler for Next episode:

Listening to her in Skip Beat is a joy, although her mood swings over there are much bigger than Alicia's.

This episode revived my interest in this show. There was a good amount of character development for Welkin and Selvaria was of course awesome. There were just some all around good moments (as well as good music) in the episode.

Next week looks promising as we'll see more Selvaria since it appears to be an Impereal focused episode from the previews.

Personally, Kyoko is my favorite Inoue role. It's her first role where she finally shows what she can do as a voice actress, and wow, she can do a lot.

Well, Kyoko is a character which allows for multiple voices. I'm reminded of her co-star's (Konishi Katsuyuki's) role as Komui in DGM. Another character with multiple facets. This seems to be lacking in VC so far.

Really..in the game she can deflect a tank shell flying straight at her and using her lance to blow up tanks..really deflecting a bullet is nothing. Even if she's not glowing the fact is her ability is enhance as she is a valkyur.

In game and DLC..her regular form is also a lot stronger than everyone else and Alicia's Valkyria ability activate without her turning blue for her potentials.

Yeah, though i'm not surprised we don't see his face in the DLC. Yet another nice surprise the adaptation has done for we game players.

okay but what is the explanation of this that makes sense of it all?

Is she some sort of alien like superman? is she perhaps equipped with some ancient technology that allows her to do this?

Blood of the Valkyrur.

You know the people of legend that easily took over an entire continent?

What seems to be their power is massive control over ragnite, so they can personally draw energy from it without needing engines or machines.

Basically think of it as being able to take a barrel of oil and then use the energy within the hydrocarbon covalent bonds to give yourself super-strength and the ability to fire flames from your hand. :P
