It's like they where hiding her on purpose.

She didn't appear during Welkin's speech near the start. Only time was just before the mission started. This better change.

Lol I actually took Edy off my team because of her "Rosie hater" potential.

My team was constantly Welkin, Alicia, Rosie, Largo, Vyse, Aika, Dallas, Marina, and Nina for the story-mode.
For the skirmishes I used Welkin, Ramona, Juno, Jane, Catherine, Coby, Yoko, and the shocktrooper girl wearing the beanie who loved explosions, and the engineer girl who was a Darcsean. It's been awhile so I don't remember those last two girl's names.

Just a little question. Who is this?:



I don't read Japanese and my translator seems off the mark, so I can't tell who this is.

That, and she was kind of snobby about it like in the game.

EDIT: Omg >_< how can you not like isara

Lol, another reason that battle might have not fleshed out well: in the game during the battle everyone followed orders, but considering the problem that mightve looked wierd in the anime.

I say he should go by the nickname of Faldio fanboy.

Looks like he could be annoying, though i'll see how he's handled before i judge.

Guys, there is still hope. As someone mentioned, Largo's with his lance in the OP. Let's keep our fingers crossed for classes.

Well, that explains it. I'm not in the US, and the only US shows I have ever watched are The Simpsons and Family Guy.

When you get right down to it, it's somewhat amusing how different the focus in weaponry between the anime and the game is. In the game, the lances will appear pretty much more often than any other weapon in the cutscenes. Whereas in the anime we've seen a grand total of one lance (not including the OP) three "machine guns" and everything else rifles that don't discharge empty casings no matter how often they fire.

If I remember correctly the guns didn't discharge empty cases in the game either.

For the record, Largo DOES carry a rifle in the game during the cutscenes.

Only three episodes and we're already in the thick of the story game-wise.

I wish the game itself was longer... I think they could have put in maybe twice the content to compete with the likes of epics like FFT or something. Oh well. And I'm almost bitter about buying DLC. It's like all my favorites have to be expanded that way.

They did, even has smoke trails, really nice and adds to steam-punk genre. Of course, casings still do that in real life, just not as exaggerated-but it looks nice

Ahaa....weapons in the anime...they did a pretty good job in the game, however in the anime much like the other aspects of combat i find it very lacking. Actually I think the guns are the most poorly done part in the series, but i've seen worse-probably

They did. Well, you can't see it with snipers (scope and all) so they probably didn't, but regular scouts, engineers, and shocktroopers all drop casings when firing guns.

Crew-served.

I think the poster was asking about man-portable. Maybe.

Wow, I feel stupid not noticing that. I guess I was paying so much attention to who I was attacking that I guess I never bothered looking at the guns when they were shooting.

looks like a Lewis LMG to me but with a underside mag clip instead of a topside drum pan mag clip.

In the game, he's a very funny and charming character. With the game having a large character roster, his personality set him apart as one of the more memorable ones.

The anime seems to know this too as it includes Edy, Marina and Jann—three characters not in the main cast who are arguably the most popular among VC fans.


And yes, more sideboob... er, I mean Selvaria. Glorious Selvaria will be glorious. That is all.
