hehe not everyone has played the game so your gonna drop some hints on that matter

but the most obvious error is the spelling, you wonder if it would kill them to pick up a english dictonary once in awhile. I mean this ain't the first time bad grammar is used here, the oh so aweful stuff used to describe Rosie and Largo was *faceplam*

Spoiler for answer *HUGE spoiler*:


I've studied Japanese for 10 years self-study now, so I don't understand every single word said, but I understand about 80% of the conversation. I understood what was going on and such.

For the sake of the argument, I think it's better to just continue moving with the story and accept there were somewhat close. By their defintion of course.

Back to Topic.

I don't know about you guys but don't you think that almost sounds "selfish"? (Can't find the word).

For starters, I do not think it is right to push "someone" into in other person's arms, especially if they don't feel the same.

Alicia has strong feelings for Welkin, he has strong feelings for her, end of story.

Faldio comes into the picture and develops strong feelings for Alicia, ok, but Alicia defintely does not feel the same way.

In this case Welkin is disrespecting Alicia's feelings.

This time I'm throwing the monkey wrench at Welkin. If what I suspect will happen in the next battle, he better pull that head of his out of his ass.

Methinks Alicia needs to turn to some of the other girls for advice. Maybe Marina *lol* would give some *pfft* nice tips...

*LMAO* I couldn't say that with a straight face. After what Marina did this episode, which by the way was freaking awesome, I think she might have KP duty for the next little while. Oh well, it was great for a laugh.

Well when you look at who is in squad 7...don't think any girls would be able to give good advice.

Edy: Just hit em!, that always works when I want a guy to do something for me
Susie: Try the non-violent approach, things can always be worked out peacefully
Aisha: What Boys!!, EWW!, boys!!.
Marina: *Glare*......*glare some more*

Personally, I think she'd have more luck asking Jann Walker how to deal with men

I was mildly disappointed that it wasn't being used for the anime OP, but now I can say that it was justified.

Its more like Welkin is insensitive jerk. But also a bit jealous and confused.

He and alicia never felt all that close in my book, and the fact that Alicia blushes to around every man that approaches her doesnt help matters much just like the fact that she seems to spend more time with Faldio than with Welkin anyway (though more is because Falkdio is sticking to her like a wet leaf to her ass).

Yeah she was flustered around him and tried to pull moves on him when alone, but she looks flustered by about every man around anyway.

I haven't watched the ep yet and don't know if it's what you meant, but aren't the T-Mag and GSR-10 Gallian weapons? I mean I guess it wouldn't be so wierd since you could use enemy weapons in the game, but I wouldn't think the imperials would stockpile them.

You got it. It makes no sense for them to gather and stockpile the enemies weapons. I blame the animation crew of not getting their facts right.

Well if that was all that it was, then that wasn't fair. Since you could always stockpile Imperial weapons since forever in the game.

But you could never stockpile the Ruhm, Selvarias personal weapon, specially made for her, and her alone. You could not get that weapon until AFTER the Downloadable content was made available, or the DLC very much later after the game was released. But Imperial weapons, you got gather them as early as the 3rd or 4th mission in the video game.

Never mind that most of the captured Imperial weapons are inferior to what you can already research, although the Imperial flamethrowers are really awesome.

Hahaha.

Thank you Omni for the hilarity! Why didn't anyone else notice this?

Who cares if it doesn't make sense! Babelfish to save the day, then copy and paste!

any hints about what is supposed to happen in the next battle? I guess this is something from the game.

Oh my, i laughed quite a bit how they just ended on such a happy brother and sister moment. Would have been better if they ended on the Alicia and Welkin walking off, but oh no, let's add in a siscon route.

Apart from that this episode was worth it just for loli Selvaria.

Well it proves you should not pay attention much to the things in VC, and not try too hard thinking since obviously script-writers were not thinking much themselves.

You just have to sit and watch it. (not going to say "and enjoy it" since so far it hasn't been all that enjoyable experience at least for me).

@Darknemo2000:

Heh, they're not even trying anymore. Especially not since they took a Devil May Cry press release/wikipedia entry and used Babelfish or something to translate it into English, then inserted it onto a sheet of paper to make it seem like some sort of "important report".

l wonder when the writters will stop giving us gamers the middle finger....


About the ending, l'm pretty sure what they where trying to convey is that the only thing that's keeping welkin still going is lsara that's the only happiness he has whut with the war going on and the horrible situation going on between him and alicia...oh and that fool faldio.
