I wonder what Varrot's story was all about for it to be long and boring (except for the bits we already saw in the series about her past)... so much for the girls and poor Hans to be left almost boiling.

This arrived today.

Just watched the DVD, it seems pretty good, despite not knowing a word of Jap. It must have been a good 40 minutes in length. Some pictures if anybody is interested.

We need an English release before VC2 comes out. Mainly for all those cheap sons- and daughters-of-mothers who didn't play VC1.

Here's is some picture from the artbook that I took. The lighting is pretty bad I apologize..don't think a lot of people post pictures of the tanks which I thought are interesting. Since you definitely can seem some resemblance from some of them. There is also one with the Royal Guards tank, this one looks really badass, too bad it doesn't make any appearances in the actual game. reminds me a bit of the M3 Lee but only with one barrel


One of the picture is also the Bielert brothers. It seems like they were originally going to be in Bruhl village when the Imperial attacked...other pictures some them holding rifles with explosion around them.


you can also see image of the original Alicia getting married right by the Edelweiss.


The pre-production picture that really resembles the style from Miyazaki's type of films. There is a more fantastical setting rather than the historical background the VC ends up in. I admit though that the original concept was very attractive as well.

Now this is... awkward. Looks like there's now a VC 4-koma anthology coming out.

http://portal.valkyria.jp/books/anthology_02.shtml

This should at least be good for some laughs.

They've also got a new comic that's starring Aliasse from VC2 coming out.

http://portal.valkyria.jp/books/dengeki.shtml

Beyond that, I don't know a thing.

Hey guys, I've seen this scan from cloner4000:



Can anybody try guessing or translating some of the ranks in there? I already know the ones from lieutenant up to field marshall (or supreme commander of the armies), but don't know about the upper page (below the rank of lieutenant).

While I don't know a word of Japanese, but I would assume ranks from Private 2nd Class up to Master Sargent (assuming the ranks use similar structure to US Army - if it's more along German lines, those would be from Rifleman to Senior Sargent). Does Gallia have Warrant Officers?

That would be mine. Also, admittedly, Isara is cute. Beings I'm also 16, seeing that (bottom right corner) made a change-of-pants required.

If that is good or bad, I have yet to figure out.

The top row ranks read from left to right...

Privates 2nd ~ 1st Class
Superior Private
Corporal
Sergeant
Sergeant Major
Warrant Officer

They follow the ranks of the JGSDF, which makes sense seeing as it's a Japanese game and the art book was done in Japanese.

Fsk, Isara, why do you have to be so cute. It pains me, yet I can't help but love you...

Yes. Damn it all. D:

Damn it, devs. Why'd you have to go and kill her? She could have been a great character - waste of a perfectly good subplot. D:

I wouldn't go as far as saying i didnt like her, but they sure didnt give her alot of screentime for the player to form a strong oppinion on her before killing her off. I thought it was hilarious when she was killed off in the game, how they gave her a montage of what pretty much just happened 5 minutes ago. That montage ruined the whole sadness of the death and made it funny.

Although in the anime i cried like a girl.

Sorry, couldn't help it.

I feel that they left Isara's character quite under-developed. She's not given much screen time, and frankly, what COULD have been quite the heart-wrenching scene ended up being more of a case of, "Dude, Sorry your little sister got killed," and nothing more. Having not watched the Anime, I am unaware of it's events.

this reminds me of the OOC-like thing in VC2, we don't know a whole lot about the character >_> so can we really say its not in character?>.< You might remember me going on about how they were awkwardly not present in many scenes and of course... not being a a playable character

i tihnk people would've had much stronger attachment to the character if they allowed us to use them T_T (i could always use more command points xD)

but i still find those scenes...*sniff* maybe the devs were counting on certain assumptions be made about them...

anyway, for all the animes faults... they had a lot more dialouge... and added to the characters...although some of it was heresy =_="

I'm glad they fleshed out Isara's character a lot more in the VC anime, and gave Welkin his sob scene (which the game so desperately needed, IMO).

Back to this topic, however, the 8th DVD releases tomorrow. With that comes the 8th OVA, which is starring Cordelia. Beyond the fact that it's supposed to look at her daily life, I have no idea what'll happen. I just hope it doesn't get super goofy like the 7th one. Cordelia's a character I really like, and I don't want to see her character spoiled by goofy shenanigans.

Doublepost, I know, but there's something new that came out relating to VC2.

http://portal.valkyria.jp/books/books07.shtml

Is this a player's guide or a new manga? I can't tell. Also, has anyone seen the 8th OVA yet?
