Spoiler for RamalXIsara:


And the best part of the whole episode...listening to Isara sing that sweet sweet Darcsen song <3, the quality of the one I watched wasn't good enough for me to be able to understand or translate, but it was very sweet...soothing....ok now I'm sad again

I felt... nothing. Absolutely nothing.

This could mean a major anime-only retcon based on the preview.

But in the game Isara used it as a means of growing closer to both Largo and Rosie.

Lol, this anime does not always follow logic you know. You can pretty much expect any nonsense from such failure script writers.

For dramatic purposes, it needs to follow basic rules from scripwriting 101. If not, these scripwriters deserve to be fired.

A new subber put out his version of Episode 17, so I decided to have a look at it. It's not like gleam's, and it gets Edy's name spelled wrong, but it does the job.
Spoiler for Episode 17, subbed:
Okashii's subs don't really compare to Gleam's or Doremi's, but they're effective enough. He needs to check his references, though, as he got Edy's name wrong and Varrot's rank incorrectly.

But I digress. Whatever the rest of you say, I still thought this was a great episode.
Spoiler for Next episode:

I agree with you: the episode was good although there was room for better.

Well all subbers will translate an anime in their own way. Since Japanese-English isn't literal translations, he translated some things differently then I translated them into my head without subs.

But both cases were the same meaning. And yeah, there was some spelling mistakes, like Edys name. But it got the point across like you said. I also got to check my own translations in my head, same idea, just we did them differently alittle bit.

Spoiler for preview for 18:

Now now, don't just go in denial on us like that!

You'll feel better if you repeat this zetsubou mantra after me: "the realisation that no character in VC is immortal has left me in despair!"

Guess the show didn't really deliver if you forgot that this is a war and that people die.
The carnival of death is only starting! Now scream for me!
(I hope that'll bring some exciting anxiety as you watch the rest of the show).

I know where you're coming. However, none can help but feel there's something fishy in the preview because it sends mixed messages from the looks of it. Nobody can tell what's gonna happen especially when...

Spoiler:


Anyway, the writers seem to have failed Scriptwriting 101 and deserve a hard kick in the arse for the mess they left with the series

I'm actually gonna give this episode a 9/10, because i quite like the build up to the scene at the end. Yes it was completely different to how it played out in the game, though it looked like they wanted to build up more on the shock element here, and it was done quite nicely. Plus we have scenes like blushing Edy (YES!) , and Jann X Largo. Plus Ramal was very adorable in this episode.

Was still very lol how Faldio was at the right place at the right time to help Alicia when she burnt her hands.

I'd say Ramal at this point, though it depends if he joins Squad 7 or not.

Am i they only one that spotted that Zaka is mysteriously missing from this mission?Wth happened to him?He is my favourite character from the game(and from the anime for the short time we got to see him) but they thought it is for the best not to include him?

I doubt it will be Ramal.He doesnt have the experience to drive and maintain the tank nor he blongs in squad 7(and you dont choose your suad if im not mistaken so he cant change).

I didnt really like the ending.It was emotionless and left a lot of unanswered questions about the story since a)Kreis and Leon didnt appear on the anime,B)Isara's dream havent been mentioned,C) [mod edit: removed game spoiler]

And i doubt we will ever see a proper battle from the anime.This battle ended the same way as vasel bridge:Attack starts,some running and shooting and then "BAM" fight is fast forwarded and is over.

No, we've been having that conversation in the spoiler and comparison thread for weeks now.

Or maybe he won't appear ever again. It's possible.

Had Zaka been a shota character with a female seiyu he would have reappeared already.

The badas characters only get cameos in this show, if at all.

So for people who played the game...Hows Welkin take this? Does he go all emo like he's been recently or does this give him a REVENGE attitude?
