Harps that size and style are usually called lyres. But mini-harps work for me too.

Loving the preview music as well. That style seems to be the theme of the score, which i am very happy with. It's a nice change, and fits the setting of this story nicely.
I like all the BGM music so far except for one piece. You can hear it in ep 5. It's that eery piece that played during the nighttime castle conversation between Arawn and Ogam during the prologue. I think it was a synthesizer trying to imitate bagpipes or a similar reed instrument. But it simply didn't work for me. It was eery though. I'll give it that.

Don't care much for either the OP or the ED songs, but I'm not big fan of Jpop to begin with. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the OP out of my head. Lying in bed, trying to fall asleep, and that song keeps running through my head. Not good.

Yeah, it'll be magic points.

If you're like that, then it means you'e able to acknowledge just how catchy the OP is.

I like it for that reason. It's a fun song that sets me in the right mood for this show.

MP meant mana/magic points in the game.
And about Taliesin's instrument: probably some variation of lyre.

The H1N1 virus is catchy too. Doesn't mean I want it running through my head though.

I admit if I had to choose between the OP or the ED, I prefer the OP. The ED really disappoints. I think it's the Engrish pronounciation at the very beginning that kills the ED for me.

As others said, Magic Points. In fact all his songs consume a lot of them since they're powerful 8P
I noticed a few interesting things in this episodes that tie to the game, but I can't tell a thing for a couple episodes still 8P
Odd fact #23213: a few of the camera shots in the last episode show some parts of Avalon exactly like they were portraied as backgrounds in the game.

Octavia is cool in every sense, shes who I'll be looking forward to from now on and some Mo-chan too

Don't diss Llyr yet, that's all I can say. As for the pacing, it will pick up soon if they stick with the game flow.

I'm not sure why they chose to use "elf" for translation instead of "fairy".
Anyways, Llyr is a selkie. Scottish seal fairy.
The whole marrying the human who steal their seal skin is part of the selkie myth also.

The anime and (probably) the game called Llyr an elf. That's not quite true based on what they showed us about her in ep 6.

Spoiler for ep 6:


Edit: Looks like aohige beat me to the punch.

Dodgy translations most likely as "Yousei" has always been fairy =/= elf. And I didn't even know a seal fairy actually exists in myths

Actually those scenes are taken from the "optional events" of the game. There are a couple differences, but I'm not telling them unless I get assured this won't be a violation of spoiler rules.

The only explanation I have is "anime magic". Just like how flying girls can land with their butt in your face despite falling in a direction that makes it rather impossible or how nameless characters can fall facing in the wrong position when knocked out.

Remember, in anime, food preparations that only involves frying pan, eggs, salt and pepper can lead to an explosion.

I can't tell whether you are being sarcastic or serious here since Llyr is not an obvious good use of her voice (and I for the record I think it is an octave higher in annoyance than Yuko Goto).

I like the episode thus far. ToT is starting to become my recommended titles with the awesome fight scripts. XD You don't see that often in animes. (least for me)
I don't know why, but I really enjoy Arwan's seemingly accidental harem grow.
