I was amused when I read this:

今のアニメひどかったね



At least we gaijin viewers aren't alone in thinking that the anime could've been better. Then again, it might have entirely been a statement about contemporary anime in general.

I think the reason why the anime chooses to depict Faldio shooting Alicia on the back is to make the scene more personal... You know, so he could be the gentleman in carrying her over to the cot.

Spoiler for episode 21:

I see Selvaria, and all I see is awesomeness! Sieg Selvaria! *salutes*

Uh, translations please? Babelfish isn't doing anything for me right now.

also, this episode was hardly exciting especially since this episode was supposed to be the climax of the entire game.

... 5 more episodes to wrap things up. I can only wonder how they are ever going to pull that off, because there are still a lot to cover.

Fabio will construct a dream machine, thereby enabling the writers to at least pretend the game ending happened, while in reality Fabio has instead taken over the world and made Alicia his first concubine with Selvaria the second!

Welkin shall clean the latrines of the Royal Fabio Palace!

Personally, I think it'd be hilarious if they had a love triangle involving Sel, Alicia and Welkin with Alicia at the center of the triangle, not Welkin.

This show rides the fail train in ways I haven't seen in some time. I hope the script-writers and director are black-listed permanently after this mess.

Was Welkin even in the episode? More than just the OP?

Aside from game spoiling as it was mentioned in previous episodes the ruling caste of Gallia were descended from Valkryias themselves.

Did anyone also notice,

Spoiler:


I wonder if that's going to important later on.

As for Faldio, I guess they wanted to make the situation look really grim and desperate but it didn't had the same epic feeling as the game had.

Spoiler for Rofl:


Oh lordy this is anime hilarious.

Next plot twist! Welkin and Maximillian had the same mother! After divorcing Welkin's dad due to him being emo like his son, Welkin's mother went into Imperial lands and was swept up in a whirlwind of lust by the Emperor in the style of "The King & I". She then got tossed aside and died from lack of exposure to young Fabio, a deadly condition if there ever was one. Maximilian then went back through time in order to attempt to save his mother, which is why he is about 7+ years old than Welkin! He failed because the Fabio plushies he obtained did not contain enough Fabio essence to save his mother. This is why he is bitter towards Gallia! Because within its borders the legendary Fabio was born!

IT MAKES SENSE! I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING NOW!

Well, it definitely would have taken time to convince her, which they didn't have.

So the rest of the gang from the Imperial Army and the Gallian forces come together and mourn Selvaria and Alicia's death. About the whole sisters thing, the director could have added the Selvaria/Alicia being sisters if there was enough room for the series, but sadly the series is only 26 episodes long -_-.
