Pretty much going to echo what people are saying here, and i'm pretty damn sure i've never been this disappointed with an anime adaptation before in my life..

Fabio standards though, this episode was QUALITY.

What's the Fabio rating?

I think that sniping one handed must count for something yes?

Sniping with one hand while driving with the other! I'm pretty sure it was probably a manual transmission car as well!
Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! Fabio

I'm really starting to hate Faldio's voice actor.

First Neeba from The Tower of Druaga, now Faldio from Valkyria Chronicles. It's like he's always voicing characters that the viewers will surely hate or that are caught in a love triangle.

Eiji Kai(KimiKiss), Neeba(The Tower of Druaga), Yuuhei(Cross Game), Suzaku(Code Geass).

When he voiced Zwei(Phantom OVA), it was a total disaster(not his fault) since the OVA's sucked, but still...poor guy.

That sums up the reaction script writers are having. The are having hard-ons just from a single thought about him and how more awesome the can make him.

Sniping one handed and driving made them squirt in their pants for a week now.

ok reading the comments I'm wondering what exactly did they change? I've seen how it is in the game and that was just >_< so how did they ruin it ?

So they dropped the best scene from the game. That is rather... disappointing... isn't it.

It's also very ironic that Emile is the one getting shot and not Oscar. It's so backwards.

On the other hand Squad 7 gets to go deep into action and not just for 5 seconds. That is... without the iconic Edelweiss.


Let's look at the bright side! SuperFabio+ gets to outshine the rest of the cast with his unbelievable superhuman actions once again! His missing from episode 24 was just there to build up our anticipation.

Sakurai Takahiro's forte is bishounen boys. I have yet to hear him voice an ugly character. Doesn't hurt that he IS good-looking in real life.

It's not even in the anime. Which is why everyone's disappointed.

Finished this with subs. Not really that disappointing though.
Spoiler:

Looking forward for the last, even if it looks like a death flag for the major crew.

Yes they will - they will show Faldio winning a war in nothing but swim-trunks in the end. This is the only thing they are capable of thinking of.

This...

The show doesn't even warrant full responses from me anymore. So much epic fail. I hope the writers are tarred and feathered...

They need to have Edelweiss, because it has something called smoke. In the game, the mobile fortress was successfully assaulted by Platoon 7 under a smokescreen with the Edelweiss providing cover for the troops. That is how that fortress was taken out. Instead, over here we have Platoon 7 pretty much blindly charging in with guns blazing and Fagio shooting magic bullets from behind. Yeah, very fucking convincing. No.

As for street battles. Keep in mind that the Edelweiss is essentially a heavy tank. In urban combat, utilizing tanks such as the Edelweiss wisely could turn the tide of the battle and easily become an enemy's worst nightmare. Just because the producers of this anime knows shit about combat strategy does not mean we have to level ourselves to their stupidity.

And burned! Dammit, BURNED!

But not before we use their bodies for target practice!

Aside from what Tak said, the only reasonable explanation was that they weren't planning on bringing it in the first place. However that still doesn't excuse them and Welkin could've gone, "Go get the Tank Zak, we'll hold off the Imps"

In fact, if they had brought in that city battle they had in the opening that would've been great.

What was apalling to me was the fact that we got these soldiers standing in the middle of nowhere shooting with zero cover. Emile should've had his head blown off.

Quote:
As about the missing Epic scene......Since Alicia isn't trying to sacrifice herself unlike in the game AND 7th is actually quite a distance from the fort, I can accept its dissappearance here. I'm optimistic that they'll save it for the last.
The epic scene existed because she was going to sacrifice herself, therefore it's not saved for last. She's the damsiel in distress right now.

Hardly,

Ignoring the game, by the end of this I'm beginning to wonder what Welkin would've achieved. So far Faldio's been taking the spotlight and leaving the most impression. What was Welkin done?

Jaeger? What purpose did he served? Why was he in the show at all? Selvaria' and Alicia knowing each other....why? I thought that was an interesting development but nothing happened.

Tak, chillax and just wait. That scene will come in the next episode, I guarantee it. Stop being such a bigot because the anime isn't playing out like the game scene for scene.

I agree that the fort's assault is a bit meh, but I can agree 0% with this.

I don't even want to quote (from the passage) that Russia lost most of a 120-tank brigade within hours against Chechen rebels, or the famous M1A1 got nailed by Iraqi by just one shot. Armoured units in urban warfare are, in most cases, canned food and turned to junk minutes later.
I'm not saying Welkin is incapable to command Edelweiss well, but odds are odds.

He's just expressing his opinion. There's nothing wrong with that.
