This just like what happened with Nabari no Ou --- people only complain that there isn't enough action.

Seriously people, it sounds like most of you just want action and no character development or anything. I know there isn't that much action, though just because there is action all the time in the game doesn't mean it'll be the same here.

If you want the action, play the game.

I've already played the game, but the fights in the anime are so quick! I hope the final battle isn't like a minute...>_<

Well, those fights we got until now were all pretty unimportant...
I'm sure a real boss will take more time =3

It's 26 episodes (or so I heard), with a lot of storytelling and character development to go over still. It's understandable that fight scenes are glossed over. This is the problem with game-to-anime adaptations usually, because the makers are given very confining limits to work within, unlike certain JUMP manga turned anime...which action sequences drag for 10 episodes or more making the whole series seem to have 1,000,000 episodes in total. If you find this unsatisfying, playing the game is your next option. Come to think of it, this anime will probably revive game sales. Maybe.

I don't mind so much about the mandatory boss fights but I really do hope that the fights that are directly relevant to the story itself like:
Spoiler for future episodes, tho I'm sure you're able to see this coming either way:
are given decent screen time.

And, I can't wait to hear this song in the anime:
Spoiler for general - could be small, could be big, depending on whether or not you're the kind who likes to experience every little thing as they occur:

While some are more liked than others, there are still a lot of likeable characters and everyone has their favorites. You might as well have a general group of sorts.

Or better yet, just post here... just so we can get the rate of new posts up.

As for the action scenes, I don't have a problem with them, but I do hope the anime will not gloss over significant ones in the future. Those fights should be focused on for a reason, and not just for entertainment value. But yes, I'm also kind of feeling that the pace of the story so far is a bit too fast.

A fan club can be useful in some ways =p

I can put a link to this thread (even if the bbcode doesn't work) in the group description.

And also, to collect nice pictures via the albums.

I would have not asked that question if I could be able to edit the Groups Titles, but once it's created, you can't modify the Title, but just the description v___v

Ah, ok.

So what's the group called? Will its main purpose be the submission of fanart?

That's a good question Mister. I tend to like funny titles, but maybe the other people don't like that. Any idea?

- To get a list of the Tales of the Abyss fans on AS.
- To submit/add fanarts/images/screenshots/artworks/funny pictures. So every members could go there and see all the pictures easily.
- To talk about the pictures and how awesome are some characters, without spamming this thread with idiotic (but funny) messages since funny spams are not really allowed in this thread.

I just finish watching the episode and the preview that goes to the next one. I am glad that they flesh out Natalia a bit and manage to include the spider. I do not mind that the fights have been short, but hopefully down the line some of the other fights get a bit fleshed out with the importance of the antagonist the group is facing. From what I got from next week's preview, we might be seeing two fights with certain God-Generals. It looks like the writers are combining some scenes in the game together to speed up the pace, which I do not mind since the base story line is long in itself.
Spoiler for Upcoming fight:

I don't really see how they can deal with that though. I guess it would annoy a game player, so i can't blame you.

It's mainly because of all the walking this episode that made it feel so slow compared to the super fast paced past five episodes. I've got no complaints about it, because i think it's about time they slowed down a bit.

Must admit i wish i didn't know about Asch, because that would have been quite the amazing plot twist coming into that scene and not having a clue about it.

Been a while since we've see adorable Tear, so a welcome back for that. I've liked Natalia since she first appeared, though it was nice to finally have a bit more time focused on her in this episode. She's so lovely.

Also i lol'd so much at Koyasu's laugh in this episode. I've said it once, i've said it ten times --- he is perfect for Jade.

Yep, Yep. I am really looking forward to seeing the scenes where does his famous Jade cynical sarcasm and humor lines.

I second that. I'll join that religion for Jade.

For me, it's Tear and Anise. I always like Natalia. I really dislike Tear's English VA so hearing Yukana as Tear is so refreshing. I love Tear a lot more now. As for Anise, the seiryuu must be doing something like because it's from dislike to like now.
Which is why this anime really needs a subforum, a thread to discuss the adaptation and whether the transition was carried out well, or how scenes changed, and gives people who have played the game more room to to discuss freely without spoiling the people who haven't played the game. The discussion would not fit into the game thread as it would pertain to the anime as well. Tales of the Abyss has a lot more potential for interesting discussions on the plot as well as each of the party characters as they undergo quite a bit of development throughout the course of the story. More so then Kannagi in my opinion.

I loved how they went into the contamination sidequest with Jade's spear. I was hoping they would keep that in.

Yay another Natalia fan! To be fair though, Tear's voice was not that bad in english, the acting was good, just that her voice sounded a bit too old, especially considering she is like the youngest next to Anise.

Jade deserves an entire social club to himself, his awesomeness cannot be contained in a group that is shared by other characters.

I am looking forward to seeing his, as well as the other character's, development. What I like about Jade's character is that while he comes off as somewhat flippant and cynical his sarcastic comments really cut to the core of the matter at hand.
