They were, to some extend. Although in the Anime, they seemed to know each other much more. They struck me as people who just happen to know each other a bit in the game.

Lailah has been around for quite some time, it wouldn't be all that surprising that she knew a lot of them (Seraph).

At this point in the game, wasn't Lailah's entire M.O. basically "Make sub-lord contracts with Seraphs! DO IT! C'MON, DO IT! NOWWWWW~ ooh look, a round thi-SUBLORD CONTRACT"?

Glad they got rid of that.

First Normin appeared this week, besides a massive shift from the game. What remains the same are the key events, locations and characters everything else is basically brand new and makes it worth watching for people who played the game.
I love how they introduced Attakk here, massive shift from the depressing or sad way they met in the game.

Without spoiling anything, I'm legitimately curious to see how they handle Alisha from this point onward. The next episode is named Alisha so it's probably her time to shine (I mean, having a whole episode "dedicated" to you certainly means that something will come out of it, right?).

Do you think Alisha will join Sorey on his quest or will she keep doing what she's doing right now --- seeing Sorey from time to time while doing her duty-related stuff?

It seems that we're reaching a turning point. The first cour is ending soon and I got a pretty good idea what kind of climax they are going for.

I think she will keep doing her stuff and meet with Sorey from time to time.

And I actually think Rose will be the same. I don't think the anime will introduce the concept of squires.

It seems to be going that way, since the Squire thing seemed more gameplay-related than plot-related.

The Berseria episodes already introduced us to Exorcists, which are the Berseria-era equivalents of Zestiria's Squires. It'd seem weird if Squires aren't at least brought up, but you are right that the Squire concept was more connected to gameplay than story.

Actually, Squire makes sense, even if you ignore the gameplay convenience.

The point is it doesn't have any actual plot relevance.

Didn't it give Alisha the ability to purify lesser hellions or otherwise assist Sorey in purifying them? Or was it purely so she could interact with Seraphs beyond audio?

It was mainly so she could see and talk with the seraph, which is a non-issue in the anime.

No, it makes perfect sense. It's especially relevant to the ending of the game. I can't go into details since it's technically spoilers.

For full time companions he has the seraphs. Alisha and Rose can show up from time to time. In fact, that's what I think it's gonna happen.

Goddamnit, Japanese market. That's why you get all crappy JRPG's. You get one good one and you shit all over it.
