I would say no, because Faldio seemed genuinely amazed she managed to slash Alicia's bullet, and that makes me think that's the first time he hears such a thing. Than why didn't he tried to do the same thing as Alicia?
Understanding what Welkin and Faldio are like, they won't just shoot at an enemy like that, especially Welkin. Yes i know it's a rare opportunity and all that, though if you're the sort of character who'd want to talk first and all that, then you're not going to shoot. It's that simple.

So that girl that was in love with Welkin married the one that was gonna give her the roses after Welkin turned her down eh? I was thinking she will show up later in the story and form a love triangle or something, but I guess not

very unlikely, as we don't even know her name.
think that's just to show welkin's character.
but it's a nice side story i'd have to say.

Question for people who played the game...or for future episodes:

Does Welkin ever shoot a gun?

There are missions where you don't have the Edelweiss, so Welkin uses the same weapon as the scout players. Keep in mine though, that's only in gameplay.

Not to forget that in Hard EX, you don't get to use the Edelweiss at all.

lol I'm sorry but I fail to see how they could even attempt to run around her. When one is able to deflect bullets with a sword you know damn well you won't be getting past em.
When up against someone like that, you don't want to do anything rash at all, not like what you usually see in anime.
Even when they don't know what Selvaria is capable of, the fact she doesn't bat a eye lid when a gun is pointed at her, you know she's outta your league.

plus as typical anime law when one glows again you know damn well not to mess with em

Not in a full circle, mind you, just getting around her enough to pump him with some bullets.
I was thinking about something like that: (excuse my sorry ability to utilize MS paint)

Well it's possible there are legends or myths floating around mystifying and exaggerating the capabilities of Valkyrur ,and that's why they didn't dare to try attacking them (which of course contradicts how surprised Faldio was), combining with the general mentality not to kill anyone, who's not attacking them aggressively.

But I find it kinda meh, that they just let the Enemy country's prince walk out freely and just stand in a complete paralysis.
Especially they didn't even move an inch, while Maximilian and Salvaria went outside, went in the canyon, waited on the tank, boarded the tank, commanded the tank to destroy the temple. In the meantime them three are just waiting on the exact same spot for something to happen? :/

The hanging around bit was silly yes, but the fact of the matter is that Selvaria could have far more easily slaughtered the three than they could harm Max.

So which is siller? That they didn't try to take him out, or that she didn't take them out?

I think if they tried that, Selvaria would've gone on the offensive and cut them down. If she can move fast enough to block a bullet, she could probably run up to and kill someone in a fraction of a second.

EDIT: Oh, and expect my subbed review in a short while.

Well Faldio was pretty much out of it and Welkin is the type to calmly analyze before taking action...Personally I think they all acted well within character and just helped to play up the fact that Alicia is a hot head.

Definitely Selvaria not taking them out. Arrogance does come back and bite people in the ass, honey, and your ass isn't exactly what people call "small".

Oh wow, my favorite episode so far, and to think that my expectations of this series were going down the drain based off the preview. I'm happy that I was proven wrong. Finally, an episode that dug into Welkin's past a bit.

One thing though:

No, the subs correct. It's what he said to her. Think about it, saying she looks like a bug wouldn't explain the outcome after that event.

Even if she could not take them out she would stop Faldio and Welkin to give Max enough time to escape. Sad that they did not show Selvaria with her lance and shield in these scenes. This would make clear how strong her open powers as a valkyrur are.

I think taking a lance and shield into the ruins sounds... off.

Play the game then you know why they were in the ruins. They weren't there because Maximilian needed a toilet.
