Tales of Zestiria the Cross

IMPORTANT MOD NOTE: Discussion of the "Alisha Controversy" related to the Tales of Zestiria game is completely forbidden in all anime threads. This is a flammable and cyclic topic and the anime needs to be judged on its own merits. All discussion that relates to this point in Zestiria anime threads will be deleted, and the posters may be infracted or banned.

Please use the linked thread to discuss any comparisons you'd like, but keep them out of this thread. This can also include speculation about future content based on the game. This thread should avoid all potential spoilers.

Per ANN:

Quote:
Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed at the "Tales of Festival 2015" event in Tokyo on Sunday that the Tales of video game franchise is getting a new television anime in 2016. The studio ufotable is producing Tales of 20th Anniversary Animation.



Text: A brand new work created by ufotable
Text: Production on a TV animation green-lit
Text: The journey of the shepherd transcends Zestiria
Text: Tales of 20th Anniversary Animation
Text: Production: Bandai Namco Entertainment
Text: Animation Production: ufotable
Not much is known about it, but it's a "TV Animation" Project and it may or may not be related to Zestiria. As such, the topic title is temporary until more information is available.

ANN had updated it's news about this series
Quote:
Update: The animeanime.jp website initially reported that the anime is an adaptation of Tales of Zestiria, but it updated its article so that it only states that it is an adaptation of the Tales of franchise. Bandai Namco Entertainment also characterizes the anime as a Tales of project, and not an adaptation of Tales of Zestiria specifically.

Actually, in the katakana under the English title there, it says the title is "the Cross." Sometimes in Japan they use an X to symbolize "cross."

fhána Performs Tales of Zestiria the X TV Anime's Ending Theme
also:
Quote:
Sorey is a human youth who grew up among the “seraphim” (tenzoku), spiritual beings not visible to humans.
Sorey believes in the folklore that says “long ago, every human was able to see the seraphim” and dreams of unraveling the ancient mystery to make the world a place where people and seraphim can live together in peace.
One day, Sorey visits the human capital for the very first time. He becomes embroiled in an incident during which he pulls out a holy sword imbedded in a rock and ends up becoming a “Shepherd,” one who casts away calamity from the world. He begins to realize the gravity of his mission, and his dream of coexistence between mankind and the seraphim becomes more intense—

And thus, the Shepherd embarks on an amazing journey with his companions.
Why I have this feeling that they will remove whole begging (OVA material - read as: cut Alisha time even more)? I'm starting to think that this series is created just to give certain character (let's call her rose) even more screen time...

Ufotable did have a trailer for the anime at machi asobi, you can see screens on their twitter.
https://twitter.com/hikaruufo/status/724944915176820742
Closed theater, I believe. It should be released at a later date for everyone to see.
It's a crappy thing the devs did, but Alisha isn't so loved a character that she could hold back the release of an anime likely planned way in advance. The most popular characters were Mikleo, Edna and Sorey, anyway. Not to mention the rest of the cast is quite fun and I'm quite hype for the anime even if I had some issues with the game.

I'm re-opening this thread, but I added a very important mod note to this thread (which will carry from now, into the show's airing, and beyond):

IMPORTANT MOD NOTE: Discussion of the "Alisha Controversy" related to the Tales of Zestiria game is completely forbidden in all anime threads. This is a flammable and cyclic topic and the anime needs to be judged on its own merits. All discussion that relates to this point in Zestiria anime threads will be deleted, and the posters may be infracted or banned.

50+ posts from this thread were deleted. If you really must discuss this, you can only do it in the game thread, but if it becomes a flamewar there too, we may step in again.

"They" as in Bandai Namco and whoever the stakeholder in the Production Committee is. Ufotable is just commisioned to create it. Do note that this project is an anniversary project for the franchise.

Some people have shared clips from the English Dub. I had some concerns, but it was put to rest from what I have seen

The English Dub seemed quite solid.

Decent start, the story feels kinda confusing but I like the amount of technical effort Ufotable put in for the animation and music. In the meantime, seems like Sorey hasn't been introduced just yet.

Alisha seems to be more of the main focus for now while tragedy strikes with some weird mist against Clemm and the others. I hope the story is explained better as it feels like there's a lot happening for now. Looking forward to more though.

I'm assuming they already expect you to have played the game? Well, these "episode 00"s all tend to expect you know certain things, it shouldn't be hard to come up with ideas as to what's going on if you know the story. Not jumping into game spoiler territory, I'd at least say this is probably the precursor of how she ended up where she did in the original OVA.
