Unlike the game, the anime had been raising Rosie/Zaka flags since his introduction. I agree that it wouldn't have made sense in the game, but in the anime I actually found myself waiting for it.

*googles Lynn*

Ah, that explains why I'd never heard of her. I never had Karl in my team.

Finished the last with subs. Talk about one hell for a finale.
Spoiler:

Overall, this series has its ups and downs (as a person who hadn't play but knew the game itself), I expected the parts of war and battles are more the focus but it's not, so it's a disappointment. Still, the rest are still decently laid and those episodes near the end pulls back what they should do. I'll give an overall of 7/10.

(TM8 is still my fav in this period)

I have mixed feelings

O well, I'd say 7/10 keeping in mind how frustated I was with the middle of the show.

For me, As a fan of the game, I give 3/10 to the anime, and without compared the anime to the game, I give 5/10 to it, no more.

the Alicia from the beginning is really annoying
The show lack of military sense and strategy
The Triangular love was really bad
the ending is too rushed and lack of explaination.
They use too much the valkyria power, it's not war anymore, it's just fight between valkyria.
There is many incoherence.
The member of the unit 7 lack of development.

What? Nobody is talking about the fact that Jaeger is not seen for even one second in this episode? You guys don't find his death to be... even remotely insulting?

And lets analyze the uber final scene. Its alleged emotional impact have been utterly nullified due to the simple fact that it had occurred after Max's eventual demise, thus rendering the scene almost worthless. As I said before, the producers lost their chance when Welkin & Alicia's reunion was overlooked in the last episode. Certainly, they can move it onto the next episode, but whatever emotional affect it hoped to garner from the audiences would be rendered meaningless, and thats exactly what happened.

And do they really have to skip Isara's last hurrah?

Not mentioning it speaks for itself i guess. I don't even want to think about it.

Considering he lived... not really.

Was it? The scene was different from the game, yes, but it was also approached differently. Alicia, having just defeated Max, realized her body is undergoing the same thing Selvaria was going through before she exploded, and pleads Welkin to go away. Welkin doesn't listen, and manages to drag Alicia back from imminent self detonation by the power of love.

It's a different way of delivering the scene, but it was still a damn good scene. Instead of going or the romance somewhat before the ending, they ended with the romance. It fits the storyline of the anime, and frankly, having it done somewhere sooner would have seriously screwed up the storyline as it was.

Considering the people responsible for building the thing weren't even in the anime? Yes. It would have felt hugely out of place and make people go "Where did that airplane come from?"

The fact is that Sel's detonation was self-initiated. Alicia could not have wanted to go to that stage without considering about it first. Had she done so before Max's demise in an effort to bring him down alongside his mobile fortress, then it could be understood. Unfortunately, that is not the case here.

She did. If you'll look, you'll notice her firing up and overloading Max's system is what caused the imminent detonation.

Which was crap. Just like how she can go all Valkyria without the lance and shield.

Well the lance and shield amplifies the powers. but without them they do not have much abilities except playing speedy gonzales and self destruction mode.

Oh no, I am fully aware of that (even though it was supposed to be Faldio's job).

The problem I am having is, the detonation is not some sort of a fail-safe device. It can be stopped by Alicia if she wanted to. It took a lot of determination for Sel to go through that process, while she had many opportunities to simply stop.

Never mind that actually frying Max's system does not require a Valkyria to go all out. A fraction of her power would have been more than enough.

Poor, very poor. It just goes to show the writers didn't know what to do with his character, so they just forced him into the epilogue like that.

Though it was obvious that he didn't die last episode.

My thoughts exactly, what the hell is with this? He was more comedy than actually useful. Not that I did not enjoy his comedic moments, but that is just... not him.
