Yes, but... at least in the game he seemed very lonely, most of the time. The anime doesn't really paint him that way all that much.

I actually agree with BetoJR, he seems quite lonely here in the anime.
To be honest with you folks, I wouldn't object if the studio implements an anime only female character just for Arthur. Giving him one of Arawn's Haremette-s... would be a bit too much liberty though, IMHO. (It would be a bit faithless to the source-games).

I was a little surprised that Arawn burnt the seal skin, to be honest. I thought he should have been able to make the connection. I did.

A fairy being comes up from the ocean.
An intact but seemingly uninjured seal skin is found behind a rock on the beach. (Just the skin, mind you, not a whole carcass.)
1 + 1 = selkie.

Arawn, being a magical being himself, with his fairly extensive knowledge of the fae... if I could do the math, why didn't he?

On the other hand, watching Arawn's reaction to the realization of what he'd done and then trying to figure out a way to tell Llyr were great to watch. So maybe it's just as well he did burn the skin.

On the other other hand, burning Llyr's seal skin meant she joined Arawn's harem. Llyr is by far my least favorite of the wives at this point, so maybe it would have been better if he hadn't burned the skin. (Yes, I have 3 hands. Doesn't everyone?)

You're saying giving Arthur one of Arawn's wife's isn't being faithful to the source material, though adding a new character is?

I don't see Arthur as being lonely in the anime, maybe in the game though i haven't played it so i wouldn't know. His main focus is set on the obvious, and nothing to do with being with a partner. I guess people saying he's lonely is what they want to think of him seeing as though Arawn's harem just keeps on increasing, and we're not hearing Arthur's personally opinion on that.

Give him a break, it was a lot more obvious to we people who were watching.

I agree. Arthur doesn't appear to care about bagging a woman in the slightest, and he's gotten over his sister being engaged to Arawn. There is no sign of him feeling frustrated, angry, or jealous over being single. For me, it's not about how the character feels and more about what the audience wants; I want to see him with someone.

So the general sentiment of "poor, Arthur" is a reflection of the viewer's desire, not the characters.

@ LKK: I'd go see a doctor about that extra hand FAST.

Whoa! I'm glad i'm not the only one who's wishing for Arthur to get a girl especially with some of you hoping it's going to be with Octavia!
My Opinion: Honorable Action Guy + Honorable Action Girl = Perfect Match & Battle couple!!!
I still hoping the anime changes a little from the game makes it's happen! (I still hoping everyday)

@Shiroth. Well, I'd regard it more faithful than "changing" the story by hooking him up with one of the haremettes. Maybe it's just me who thinks so.
@LKK. My guess is, that the selkie habits and rituals evolved throughout the time Arawn was in his coffin. Even in the game he seemed like someone who doesn't know much about the "water elfs" (as they were called there), and Ogam gave him a bit more lengthier explanation about them.

Ah! That's a good theory. I can accept that as a reason for his ignorance.

Are you saying three hands aren't the norm?

So...since Llyr has appear, will Arwan's backside suffer because of the three hole?
(anyone who played the game will get I mean)

You guys got it all wrong.
The problem arises because you're looking at Arthur as a male lead along with Arawn.

If you think of him as one of the girls, and consider him a wife, it all works out perfectly!
See, he's already part of the harem.
Besides, that's how it felt like in the original game to me anyways.

Arthur and Arawn are sharing the main spot, as in the PS3 game. As for Llyr, all the scenes in the early part of the episode were present in the game, the only noticeable difference being Arawn present. I also really liked the episode 6 action scenes, very quick and good animated.

I wasn't actually replying to you 8P I tend to leave general replies for everyone since explaining in detail would go against the spoiler rules. I found a lot of direct references to the PS3 game (one background in episode 6 is exactly the same as in the game for example), and I'd like to tease about future developments but I can't 8P

Thats actually quite accurate if you ask me lol, also this may suprise everyone but Arawn is more interested in Arthur atm than any of the girls. Why? because Arthur is the direct descendant of the Elf King Pwyll, and resembles him in his appearance as well.

[snip]


Though his Arawn interest in Arthur may not be romantic, it is still alot more than anything the girls have gotten lol.

I'm actually looking forward to it happening. She'll keep her honor, plus it'll be fun to see her interact with the rest of the gang.

Ok apparently people seem to forget this is an anime only discussion thread. As stated in our policy...

Not everyone (including me) has played this game and I really dont want to be spoiled anymore...

I'm surprised by how well they've managed to keep the battles really well animated and the characters, for the most part, looking very consistent. This being a 26 episode series and everything, usually by this time the animation is starting to dip or at least show signs of wearing a little thin. But so far the studio has done a good job with handling and balancing all the productions stuff. I'm impressed.
