So I have a fairly big question to ask given the current course of the anime. Now that we can see that the animators are going for broke with the stupid Faldio x Alicia subplot it begs the question:

I'm certainly enjoying the anime for the train-wreck potential is all I can say.
There's also another thing they seemingly cut out:

Seeing them handle the Isara and Rosie story already makes me worry that we won't see you know what happen to Rosie later on. Though saying that. Rosie did say in this episode that she was singing for everyone, and when Isara dies she'll be singing just for her.

Hmmm..

This might be a bit early but, aside from the Isara and Rosie subplot and what comes of it, there is another subplot that the game thread reminded me of.

On Max and Selvaria's subplot, I can only say that Max is Genre Blind. Seriously, never, ever underestimate anyone/anything, especially in war. Victory/defeat can be decided by some of the most insignificant things.

I just can't see the anime killing off Selvaria. They'd probably do something cheap where she will live out her life in peace. Though if Max still dies then this show will officially blow, because it's not paying respects at all, and showing how important their relationship is, especially to Selvaria.

She'll probably kill Maximillian herself in some strange twist of fate. Perhaps she'll use the Flame of the Valkyrur and destroy the Marmota, etc.

I'm just saying...

I can see it now!

About to sacrifice her own life to destroy the Marmota rather than return to her lobotomized boyfriend Welkin or the clingy jealous yandere Faldio who shot her, Alicia is stopped by Selvaria who tells her to go back to the ones who care for her!

Selvaria then goes and hugs Max before making herself go "BOOM". That day being saved, Alicia returns home to wipe the drool away from Welkin's slack-jawed mouth while simultaneously making out with !!!SUPER FALDIO!!! who singlehandedly defeated the rest of the Empire's army with a rusty spoon!

Hmm...I'm not sure if this is the correct thread to ask in, but considering that this is involving speculations, I'll start here.

Anyone have any idea of what the rank badges look like? Or at the very least, what the rank markings on say...Edy's, Marina's, and Aisha's shoulders are? Sergeant and Lieutenant are easy enough because of Largo and Welkin respectively, but what about Corporal, or Private 1st/2nd Class?

I'm afraid there's no way to answer that. The only corporals we meet ingame, Isara and Rosie, wear their own custom uniform without the shoulder badges (in the manga Rosie has the Sgt badge on it, but I wouldn't consider that accurate).

Marina and co all have the badge of private. I don't remember meeting a PFC at any point.

Captain (as worn by Varrot) is the same as lieutenant but the shield border around the three crowns is a larger more elaborate line.

Shouldn't that be in the settings thread btw?

In episode 17, Faldio finally takes notice of Alicia's healing power. That will start his investigation.

Er. Except that it was what... Episode 5? 6? When he saw it first hand after she got "shot". That was the first time. Which he ignored. And didn't even realise anything when they went to the ruins.

So if he goes "Hurf Durf, I R A ACARACGEOLOGIST! ALICIA R VALKYRUR CUZ SHE IZ HEALIN'!" from seeing her heal then well... >_>

Aside from the shot how would one come to the conclusion through the ruins? For all intents and purpose it was a trap door activated by a lever (I mean how many aren't like that?)

First time healing maybe but now that he's seen it a second time it's more than enough to draw some attention.

The ruins spelled out for people who bothered to read them that:

A) Only Valkyria can enter them so they can read the true history.

B) The ruins said "WELCOME SISTER".

C) The ruins likely had explanations on the extent of the Valkyria's powers. I can't understand how Selvaria would know about the Valkyria's Final Flame otherwise. Healing likely would have been explained there as well.

Aside from the above, the smart, coldly logical game!Faldio would also notice that:

D) Maximillian was there with Selvaria. One of them must have opened the door.

E) Previous visits by Faldio and many many others turned up nothing from the ruins. No secret doors, no nothing.

F) Alicia opened a door with no issues.

So while none of it conclusively proves Alicia is a Valkyrur, a patriot like game!Faldio would consider it enough of a chance to continue to investigate.

So did they bother reading them? I don't recall Faldio reading anything, the only part we see him read is probably the Darcsen Calamity.

That's what I'm saying though. In the anime, they didn't read them. And now they're destroyed. Therefore Faldio has a knowledge base about Valkyria about as large as he would about the military uses of Uranium in a world that doesn't have the atomic bomb. He knows zilch. Nada. Zip. Selvaria hasn't even really been unleashed upon soldiers in the anime yet, so all he knows about the Valkyria are the blatant fabrications which they themselves created to hide their purpose and history.

In the game, he goes on leave specifically to study the ruins. His squad faces Selvaria directly and gets devestated. He knows specific knowledge from the Valkyria themselves and has come into close contact with one.

In other words, there is nothing that he can base his hypothesis that Alicia is a Valkyria on in the anime. For all he knows she may just be a mutant human.

Speaking of a general thought... when I remember the days of Gundam Seed Destiny and other series from 3-4 years ago, there used to be small spoilers in magazines announcing a little of what's to be seen in episodes ahead for all main anime series. How come there's nothing such these days?

You mean episode summaries. I believe they still appear in magazines, though it's just finding someone who will translate them for you.
