I guess it was before they transitioned to the current "movie-style" kind of animation quality.

Come think of it, if Velvet does indeed appear in Zestiria, this going to be first Tales series has 2 different main hero from different series

I have no idea what I just watched, but it was one hell of a visual feast. This is some of the best use of CGI and some of the best CGI I've seen in a TV anime period. That storm at the end was terrifying. And the backgrounds were pure eye candy too. Definitely going to keep watching this show.

Yep, they definitely overdid the ham with that one.

This was good. The scriptwriting was all over the place, but if it did anything was keeping you engaged while introducing the fact that this is a world with a crisis looming over it. As a person who loved the game I'm looking forward to future episodes.

Are you fine if Studio going to change plot to improve it like having Velvet in the story?

I'm ok with either a straight up adaptation or a retake on the story as long as it's well done.

Animation quality has nothing to do with a narrative of a show being good or bad, though.

The plot is already slightly different. Alisha didn't meet a dragon until much later on. It's not a big deal.

They don't have to change the story to incorporate Velvet into it. I don't want to talk too much about the game though. I have heard that it was going Anime original. It will most likely keep "key-events" and add more.

ToZ's ending was quite open. If Velvet meets with the party or some of them later on, it isn't changing much, as we're into post-game territory.

Agreed. It really was like watching a well-made animated movie. The storm scene was highly captivating. I particularly liked the moment where you have a view almost like a side-scrolling video game, and you see this humongous panoramic storm in the background of the Princess riding on her steed.

Really enjoyed this episode. The expanded focus on Alisha was nice, as was the world building. That jackal guy whose name I never remember because he was nothing more than annoyance in the game already feels more fleshed out than he was in said game. Overall, felt like a good set up for those who were cautious about this due to having played the game.

Though three things did annoy me a little. First, Clemm threw up such an obvious and cliche death flag when she turned around and spouted about how the book Alisha gave her was her prized possession. There was no contextual reason for her to do so, and felt pretty jarring. All it made me think was "Your ass is so dead before this episode is over." Second, it spent too much time making me wonder where it fit in the story and made it more difficult to immerse myself. Third, as others have said, that little girl's death was quite possibly the cheesiest thing I've seen in anime in years.

It's three parts. The first part is super ridiculously rushed and probably needed to be twice as long as it skips large chunks of story to move things along. The second and third parts are pretty well paced and done well, so if you can get past the first part you're fine.

Nope, don't remember said kid at all. Though even if it's cheesier, that would've been back in 2008 so this is still the cheesiest in years.

I don't know. That scene brought some people to tears. Not me, but Tales series does do those sorts of things.

This is a very minor spoiler from the game but I don't think anyone's going to be hurt by seeing this. I'll hide it regardless, but feel free to check it.

Spoiler for Kids:


Edit:

I wanted to clarify some things. Depending on which site you watched it, some things may have been named differently:

In some translation, they said...
"Ley Lines"
"Book of Seraphic Remains"

The in-game term is...
"Earthpulse"
"Celestial Record"

It's not a big deal.

The animation was awesome but I failed to digest a lot of information (Well, I had to replay Abyss to understand its story.)

So basically that black mist is going to kill mankind?

Jesus someone raised the Royal treasury. How big of a budget did they get. Prolog was a fine set up and given that I have been in a dry spell for months would animes since Iv hated almost everything that has been released this held my attention quite nicely. Will be sticking with it for a while

Gotta wonder why they're putting so much money on this. It wasn't even their most successful Tales game (that's Xillia with half a million copies sold in the first week if I remember correctly).

Another thing that seems odd is releasing a PS4 version of Zestiria this month when Berseria is getting released in August. The two releases so close to each other could strain the fans' wallet, impacting negatively on sales overall.

While it is understood that Berseria and Zestiria are connected, what's the point of putting Berseria's MC here in the OP/ED thing?

OTOH goddamn they personally should have put all this money on the actual production of Zestiria itself, so that I didn't end up having to play (and never actually finish!) that technical mess of a game.

If there's one ting we can all probably agree on, they're apparently really intent on breaking Alicia even this early into the storyline.

Minor spoiler explanation as why Velvet being in this Anime isn't totally nonsensical

#1 Well, ToB isn't out so we don't know how it ends.
Spoiler for Minor in-game info. Not a big spoiler, but still hidding it nonetheless:
