We've seen hundreds of typical heroines like Riannon, geez we are in 2009 and they still can't come up with something new, the only thing good in this show is Arawn since he's not your usual main character.

You're right. I should have phrased my question as "Is anyone in addition to Shiroth planning on getting the OST?"

Riannon is somewhat of typical heroin but shes not half as bad as some others we have seen in the past. I actually find her quite refreshing she does not really do anything that gets on your nervous. Even though sometimes her straightforward attitude can bug others in the series. Gaius was getting pretty annoyed with her happy go lucky no one gonna hold me down no ones gonna break my stride speech. Although she is not my favorite character i dont mind her. Besides seeing Arthur's face she ran right past him to Arwan was just priceless.

In the end there was really no point in holding her hostage for any longer than he did.

I am posting here after quite a while...

Well, I think this episode (12) was not as interesting as I thought it would be. Honestly speaking, Riannon isn't one of my favorite characters from the show. She's kinda boring (my sincere apologies to all Riannon fans out here! ).

But it was fun to see her walking past Arthur and go to Awran while Arthur was the one all worried about her. Hehehe... Arthur's expression was just too funny. Poor guy

I dunno. Those don't look like Imperial archers to me. I think they're from a third party. Remember when Taliesin first met the Gael hunting party? He told them the Gaels were hunting in lands owned by another group. I always assumed that Taliesin was from this other group. (Mostly because he's got to be from somewhere, and he's not with the Empire and not with the Gaels.) I think it's this other group who is opposing the Gaels in the preview. I'm too busy at the moment to verify the info, but I think the name Taliesin gave for this other group is the same as the upcoming episode title. I think that instead of Taliesin joining the bad guys, what we're seeing is a temporary misunderstanding between the Gaels and this other group who will eventually become allies in the fight against the empire. I think this because we know from the OP that Taliesin ultimately stands with the Gaels.

Bleh...Riannon's episode was quite boring and typical. As if anyone would dislike her since she is such a saint *points to self*. Boring-squeaky clean characters should be considered a sin
Anyway, welcome to Arthur's lousy life. Not even his sister wants him.

Saints could be interesting characters too if they have good backstories or depth in their personalities. Unfortunately I don't find either in Riannon. So far, I've only found her interesting in two instances: during her sunset conversation with her husband, and when she made a funny face before killing an enemy soldier.

However, I have a feeling that more meat will surround her bones in due time.

C- for lack of attention to details.
But don't fret. I'm sure there will be plenty of chances to improve your score. We've still got half the series left.

The series has been okay for me so far. It is not progressing as much as I'd hope. So far, the only progress in the series is that Arawn has built quite a harem. They have been in the same place since near the beginning of the series and have not made any progress with the empire.

Another thing is that this little girl in the intro and ending seems to be so prominent, yet, halfway through the series, we don't know who she is.

In this regard, I believe Guin Saga is better in its story telling, if you wanted to make a comparison. There is progress in Guin Saga, well, unless you consider harem building as progress for Tears...

I guess my expectations were a bit higher since I was such a huge fan of Utawarerumono. I hope this series will pick up speed soon.

I'm just guessing, based on seeing a lot of anime, but it's the typical sort of thing where you spend 75% of the series building the party, and the last 25% frantically resolving the plot.

(And then the fanboys spend the last few weeks complaining about how the ending feels rushed! )

But the fun part is the journey, so I don't mind it so much. I can sort of tell where it's going, and I don't care. I'll watch it anyway, because it's fun to watch. Arawn is one of the more interesting pim--err, heroes? out there these days.

Ain't nothin' wrong with that. The boy just needs to take some serious lessons from Arawn in playing it cool. Besides, she's got herself a magical husband who could probably find her in a crowded mall. Ain't no way Arthur could ever compete with that. Time for Arthur to let it go and start looking at other girls.

I guess I'm not the only one that noticed that Brigantes was already mentioned previously and that Taliesin might be part of it.

They should be mentioning stuff about that girl soon.

Also, TtT hasn't been that great so far. But now that it's on Gaius' arc, the plot should start to really thicken. It'd be sad if it doesn't. =/

P.S. The fillers aren't that bad IMHO.

You forgot about the special one the most attractive one of the show still hasn't joined Awran's harem... I don't need to mention her name, do I?

I know it's like a day dream though .... ArthurxOctavia

I agree about Riannon. It's just so tiring seeing the same kind of boring holier-than- thou heroine over and over in the vein of Akane (Hachiyoushou) and Angelique. It grates on my nerves.

But with that said, I don't know how else she's supposed to be besides saintly.

But at least she could have more of a personality, or at least weird quirks, or a sense of humor, geez, anything on top of the bowl of steamed rice would be good.
