Let me play the devil's advocate here though and point out that General Damon is indirectly the reason why Gallia is winning the war. After all he's the one who's been pushing Squad 7 into all desperate fights which they ultimately won
Let's just say he gets the credit at the end as he is the "strategist". But still he is the same arrogant bastard as in the game.

Meh, I would have rather seen Alicia x Dallas

One minute in and I'm already wondering how rondom can these people get...I mean Alicia and Selvaria in a facility for research on children (probably something to do with Valkyrias) sharing bread...come on. That really "out there". It's obvious by now the're going with a completely original story but it would be nice if the do connect the events and don't just place random things around and link them in loose way.
Ok on with the rest of the episode...

Omg, I thought I would wait for the subs in hopes of enjoying the episode more than the previous ones and suddenly I've become like the only one that hasn't seen it! NOESS! Sigh, might as well wait a widdle bit wonger. Did the sub group get bored of this anime or something?

It was subbed hours ago by gleam ^^

The previous episode and from the ones before I really thought it couldn't get any worse XD

So I wathced the rest of it. Surprisingly if you ignore the first minute with the wierd background story it's quite good. This time around they manged to pull it off quite nicely. The pisode was emotional with the center of it being how everyone see Alicia now. There are a few things that didn't quite make sense - like the last scene...she was like a child there...it was obvious Welkin would support her but she still left even though she was the one who said she loved him. It was also clear that with a bit of explanations her "comrades" would understand the situation. She was acting kind of like a child doing the opposite of the right thing to do just for the sake of it. Also the reactions from squad 7 weren't really normal. I mean some of them knew Alicia since a long time ago. In that case you would support your friend in such a situation, not say you're scared of her. They were all over dramatic reaction to make it look more emotional

Well I can live with that, after all they're really trying hard to build up to a really emotional moment in the the next episode or more like th 24th. Then again I think that's as good a it will get - I'm pretty sure this was the most emotional part with the Alicia being a Valkyria story. The next episode will probably will include how Welkin tries to convince her to come back or somethin which will lead to an epic confession I guess.

On a side note Faldio was just lame. Why did he went all emo and crazy? He seemed so determined the previous episode so if he succeede in awaking the Valkyria why the sudden character change?

What do you guys think?

2 out of 5 Fabio's for the episodes' predictability.



Alicia runs to squad,
Squad talks behind her back,
Alicia is shocked and runs away.

Welkin and his bad acting didn't convince me that he wanted Alicia to stay.

Fabio looks more and more emo.

Selvaria would of been a wayyyyyyyyyyyyy cooler character if she wasn't so damm devoted to Lelouch.

The best part of this episode is definitely Selvaria's shower scene

The moment I read this and saw the pictures I started laughing like I haven't laughed in a while. It was one of those "milk through the nose" moments (were I to be drinking milk when I read it, which I wasn't). Thank you kind sir!

Back on topic: *Dextro bangs his head on the wall* That kind of sums up my thought not only on this episode but the whole show up to date. And I haven't even played the game, I didn't even know anything of it's story when I came into this even if I do plan to someday buy a PS3 and play it.

A crappy love triangle with freaking Faldio? Introducing that flashback with only 4 episodes to go and clearly an awful lot of story still miles before it's wrapped up? Emo-Alicia? I can't believe I'm still watching this crap! Damn my habit of not leaving stuff unfinished...

I actually thought it was a good episode. For once, the scenes were fluid and the characters understandable. I would have liked Welkin to be more pro-active with Alicia, but we have a few episodes and for drama's sake, he had to let her leave. I was surprised that the squad shunned Alicia, you'd expect them to agree that she is the same girl they all know and love.

But, there is no doubt they could have done this episode, along with the whole series, much better.

I guess we were just asking for that: Welkin to beat the shit out of Faldio as he rightfully deserves as well as Welkin to speak his heart out about Alicia. If Alicia's confession was coming at the wrong time, this time was instead perfect for him to do so. They better come up with something big of a moment for later episodes or I'll hope so hard for somebody to get fired here.

Speaking of shunning Alicia, I thought it was disgusting for fellow military comrades to react like that when Alicia was more or less like a big sister to everybody. In my book, such reaction is worse than leaving a fellow soldier behind on the battlefield and this is unforgivable for any soldier to do. Even if some Sevens talked about how scary Alicia was, at least show us the top squad 7 guys (Welkin, Largo, Rosie, Edy) to reprimand hard those daring to talk about Alicia like that (I would die to have Rosie/Edy madly scolding Aisha and ask her to take back the words).

He is more important than Varrot or Largo in the anime.

He have too much screen time
Indeed, my thoughts on Damon is that he is A SLOB THAT IS WORTHLESS! He did nothing, he reminds me of myself but the difference is that I would and make NO MISTAKE! I would go to the front to fight! He would chicken out!

You should have sympathy that Faldio lost all his men in the battlefield and is depressed BIG TIME!

The pics I put up clearly agrees that is indeed depressing and disgusting that many fear Alicia just because of her powers. I am glad Welkin understood more than anyone.

I am disappointed that Alicia in the end rejected his advances.

No not at all! There is already too much ECCHI CRAP in anime for that to happen. Although I understand you must be one of those who likes this then I suggest you get some hentai stuff made by others of her. It would make you more happier than that scene. Trust me there are better ones in these manga types.

I guess not too many read my post before about 7th's reactions......
Quote:
It's not too hard to understand though.
If someday after you suddenly find your friend is an uncontrollable WMD which can go off at anytime, it must take some time to overcome such fear. It'll be nice if they can accept her on spot, but their doubts aren't really that surprising.

Besides, not the whole squadis rejecting her......Though numbers aren't a significant factor in this matter.
And even though Welkin understands her, with her fella in doubt and fear about her power, it's still not possible to join them back right now.

But I do understand the whole point about 7ths reaction but the thing is why would they fear her when she would never turn on them less some attack her?

The truth is they just fear the power itself and that makes them weak to me. If I was with you and suddenly you used your powers and let's say they almost killed me but I knew it was intentional. I would not fear you at the very least just be cautious of not being in more your way during fights.

Unlike Selveria's Val Powers, Alicia's debut looks to those people (or at least for me), well, not too well-controlled. At least she's not conscious when she's using that, and that's why I considered her as "an uncontrollable WMD".

Back in Zambot 3 when some "human bombs" were sent back to home with their firends' families, those who knew they can explode at any time isolated themselves from their friends and wait for the day of dying, even though they knew such separation is sad for both sides. I think it's similar case here.

I'm looking forward to the next episode. The title is "The shape of love" so maybe there will be some major developments between Welkin and Alicia.

Plus I wonder what kind of face will Fabio make next ep?
