Well the thing is that Faldio is meant to have a tank. And said tank driver is meant to be Ramal.

So how they're going to integrate the fact that he's a) assigned elsewhere and b) meant to be driving a different tank is beyond me.

If that's the case I actually think it's even more likely. I can definitely see him asking for re-assignment and I don't really see Faldio/Welkin/Varrot refusing. Not to mention it's about time for Faldio to be taking his "personal leave" so that'd leave him free anyway.

If nothing else, the anime has already done other things that don't make sense for the sake of character development (inviting low ranking soldiers and their pig to the princess' ball for example).

I really really hope I am wrong though.

Well, I don't consider that a fight, where one side is clearly high on "drugs" and have no idea what she was doing. Last I checked in MGS 4, the two men were actively smart-talking each other.

Whether she remembers what happens or not it's still a fight.

And one with "plot armour" stamped on it.

Well with this then we should be expecting a big battle between the Gallians and Imperial armies soon.

I think it's high time we get some heavy action.

I don't think that the company doing this really has the skills to do it justice though... so we probably won't. At best we'll just get some trench warfare, which is a lot easier to animate, as you just need to have people popping up to shoot every now and again while shells rain down.

So I'm finally caught up with the show again, and I gotta say I'm starting to feel a little anxiety about what's coming up.

Spoiler for game stuff that will be happening:


As for the OP spoiler, I don't think it's such a big deal. I'm sure most people had suspected as such for a while now. What I'm more worried about is how much the played up Selvaria vs Alicia, since that happens all of once in the game. That's not to say it wasn't awesome (it was) but they're making it out to be this big central conflict, which it isn't. At least not from a combat standpoint.

I can definitely see them turning it into something more prominent in the anime. They're already focusing more on individual character interactions than large-scale battles and a climactic showdown between the female lead and the female antagonist (who also seems to be the most popular character) would fit perfectly with that.

Besides, they suck at animating war scenes but seem to be decent at the whole "Valkyrian Lance Z" thing if the OP is anything to go by, so they'll likely play to their strengths.

Apologies for the double post.

So I have a fairly big question to ask given the current course of the anime. Now that we can see that the animators are going for broke with the stupid Faldio x Alicia subplot it begs the question:

Spoiler for Game Spoiler:


I'm certainly enjoying the anime for the train-wreck potential is all I can say.
