heh, indeed. however, i feel it difficult without any accurate walkthrough or playing like nuts with rheairds
actually, Zelos was the only one i had to start again (i guess i missed 1-2 relasthionship skits)

this system is really not "noob" friendly, since 90% of the time, you end up with colette (due her insane "+1" in almost any answer, and has the very least amount of negative points. and since she is approving most obvious options, duh >_>)

Incidentally, I turned the voices off immediately on my first playthrough and haven't turned them on since. I just knew instinctively that they'd suck badly as all dubs do, so I didn't even bother. I prefer to make up my own mind on how they sound anyway.
huho, this is a big too bad, since it should damper a lot the immersion right? (especially the battle but huh)

actually, Zelos' and Regal's english voices are pretty fine. genius is "ok" (a bit too whiny) and refill/Lloyd too.
Kratos sounds suitable, until you understand how he felt about lloyd even before the Tower Revelation. (in fact : he is way too cocky, especially in the battles)
but, colette is really butchered with a winny pitiful voice (she is NOT moe at all with her voice... damnit X_X), and presea is horribly flat (she doesn't sound empty, she does sound flat... and even after her release, bleh...)

frankly, nintendo screwed a lot the dub ~~
Quote:
The only Japanese voice I wasn't keen on was Kratos, who sounds totally different to what I'd expect, and the rest sound different to what I'd expect as well, but not in a bad way.
hahaha, i agree : i was like : HOLY COW, he is TOOO grave/burish.
but he sounds much more like a veteran and a... you know what to lloyd.

interesting...
i dunno why, but Mizuki Nana sounded a bit different in this trailer.

As for Kratos' voice, I had a look, heh. It is the same seiyuu as Gendou from NGE and Zaraki Kenpachi from Bleach. (lol!) So I can imagine he'd sound a bit rough, considering his looks. =P
his voice powns everything during "SHINING BIND"

I haven't played the game, but highly anticipating it anyway. I know of 2 groups planning to sub it, I kinda hope it won't be licensed before it finishes airing.
if you have the opportunity, you should give it a try : if you bypass the possible "deja vu/cliché" feelings, until you don't like RPG, you will like it ^^

Anyone know more about the OP and ED? Tried searching for 'Eri Kawai' but it didn't seem to yield many results.
as far as i could search, there isn't any sample yet, though Kawai Eri and Hikita Kaori are listed as singers of the OP and ED respectively.

i was watching a Lineage 2 video on youtube and someguy used KOKIA - Harmony in it, and I like that song very much so I search Kokia - harmony in youtube for more info and find another guy that made an AMV with Tales of the Abyss footage. @_@ wow crazy animation --> google around and learn about the Tales series in Wikipedia and learn that they're gonna release an OVA in 2007 --> search AS and end up here

I watch the trailer and wow, kinda scrapped princess-ish, also the theme song is superb!

Cam Clarke as Kratos in the dub sounded very very good I think. I have a lot of respect for his work in games and TV (He's Leonardo from TMNT by the way, the original) He gave the impression of a weary and experienced man who was unsure of the actions he had taken and was taking now. He didn't try to sound like a freak or anything like 4Kids VA's do, but like a normal person clearly more knowledgable then he appeared on the surface. Everyone else was just okay I think.

I was tempted for a while, but they're too expensive even for my R2J buying standards 7600 yen for one episode plus a couple of extras is way too steep when I'm used to paying 6000ish for 3 episodes (still expensive of course, but meh, I've got used to that now.)

Oh well, looking forward to it anyway Even though the first will likely be the least interesting of the four.

And the bonus disc stuff was classique UFOTable
http://www.seiha.org/blog/?p=126

As a whore for the entire Tales series, I thoroughly enjoyed it. That scene between Colette and Lloyd after the shrine stuff was adorable to the nth. If Sheena and Zelos don't show up in one of the future ones though... I will travel to UFOTable HQ and set fires.

Whilst the first while of the game (Colete shaped hole in the classroom excluded) didn't have much of a fly for her kutz, i hope the other ovas have a chance for it.

ALso, felt figgure ed. I Hope there's a Full Screen version soon.

Just watched the HG-F's version of the first episode. The actual episode was a nice bit of setup, but it was pretty annoying how they oddly mistranslated desians into something wrong and some I guess could consider a mild spoiler word.

It's a crime this is only going to be 4 episodes though. The story and characters are strong enough to cover atleast 26 episodes easily, but I guess ill take what I can get.

It's actually pretty easy to get basically whoever you want. It isn't hardset until the scene late in the game when character come to chat with Lloyd in the winter village. The character with the highest affection will visit and if you turn them away, the next highest... again... turn away for #3, and if you turn #3 away, you're stuck with #4.
