Yeah, it's airing in April.

Yeah again. You just don't realize they're that big in the game.

The beach scene in the game is when you can see their actual size clearly.

I know that, i'm talking about when she's in uniform which is like 90% of the game.

She was 19 in the game. Not sure if they changed anything for the anime.

I'll bet people haven't thought of this, but I have to wonder how the anime will treat Ellet. I mean, she was a pretty funny character in the game, and her manga counterpart is just as humorous, so I wonder if they'll keep to her character in the anime.

Maybe they'll dedicate an entire episode of her interviewing the members of Squad 7 (and not just the core members). That'd be pretty interesting, and it'd present a chance to see each member's personality.

And then there's Hans the pig... definitely should provide some laughs.

Am I the only one cringing at the rifle designs? Those promo images of Alicia wielding a Gallian rifle made me go "GAH!" It looks like a club than a gun.

How would you even aim it properly?
But yeah, the game had really nice weapon concepts and the anime is a bit of a let down in that area.

Oh well, more Valkyria Chronicles is never a bad thing so I'm still looking forward to this.

I imagine they'd have the interviews as end-of-episode omake bits.

I guess that would work. Still, she'll need to keep her role in the actual story.

Yes, awesome screenshot, I love her anime character design there, her anime form should work out good.

Also, (I may have missed it being revealed in a previous image recently but) it's freaking fantastic that they've seemingly implemented somewhat of the Canvas Engine's sketched look into the show now looking at these couple of images. I had kind of gotten used to the idea that we wouldn't get it because it would be difficult unlike with the game but it's actually nicely somewhat present now, my excitement keeps going up for this show as we see more stuff especially now that it's not going to be a ridiculously short 12/13 eps.

LOL, yeah I wouldn't be surprised if there were a lot of requests judging from the her response in the game.

Now if we could just get a nice cameo from the Skies of Arcadia crew...

Now here's something that'll need to be addressed at some point: getting English subs of this. We're going to need to find translators when this series comes out, and we're going to want GOOD ones.

Regrettably, I don't know any good translators...

The staff & cast page and the character page were also updated on the official site a few days ago.

Interview chapter 2
http://www.valkyria-anime.com/specia...iew/01-02.html

Spoiler for an outline:


I took heart in the fact that it seems not to be only triangle love at least.

I still haven't decided which set of names I'll prefer, direct romanisation of the japanese names, or the official english names from the game. Some of them are significantly different.

That is very awesome news... I do hope they flesh out Selvaria and Alicia's backstories a little more than what was covered in the game.

The romance will be mainly focused on Welkin and Alicia? ln my own opinion: That comes as a surprise. lt's the racial abuse that lsara and her kin received which was the best aspect for the game. The interactions with Rosie and lsara were truthfully amazing. Talking about Romance. The Valkyria, Selvaria. And the commander who was in charge of Gallia's invasion force--lt'll be great if the anime went more into depth about their stories and the romanticism between them.


l'm really excited about this.

They probably mean the meaning of romance that only has to do with 'romantic love', rather than romantic ideal.

Since they're straying away from Ellet's version of the story I assume certain events, like the ones around Chapter 10 may be absent or replaced.
