Too bad this series is heavily undermined by its below-average direction and expected script, it has some great characters and animation and potentielly good developments. Average episode.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Quite a surprise to see Welkin working with Jaeger and Selvaria to save the princess and Alicia :)


True.

I want to know the reaction of Welkin, Faldio sure was direct yeah. =P

I'm always a sucker for vehicle chase scenes, but lol I think I may have wet myself if I saw a tank reminiscent of the German King Tiger II running up my ass at what probably be highway speed. And maybe it is b/c I just watched all the Macrosses recently but I'm getting tired of love triangles in EVERY show I run across. That is one of the reasons I liked Eden of The East so much, no triangle :D. But I am thoroughly enjoying this show so far, Tanks+Guns+Hot Girls=Hell Yea.

Well there was that one dude in Eden, Ohtori was it? I dunno but he had no chance ;)

I can usually live and wait for the next episode in this series but i am actually kinda curious with an ending like that. I might just have to rewatch this b/c i obviously didn't see some stuff in the next episode preview.

I've Been Watching Anime for 20 years now. Can you beat that?

"Symbiosis" be damned. That was the most. Unbelievable. Partnership. Ever.
Uh, no... not really. Didn't you pay attention to what they were saying? If they had just let the Federation kidnap Cordelia, then the Federation takes over Gallia and they have to fight the Federation too. How does that make the partnership seem that unbelievable. Fight a tiny nation with corrupt and incompetent leaders and less troops or a larger and almost assuredly stronger military state? Makes sense to me >_>

Yea, the triangle is a cliche but one that works, it is just a little annoying when they don't end it right (Never played the game btw), hopefully they will end it right in this one. Also, in Eden I believe his name was Takazowa Akira or something along those lines...

I think the tank came down from the right and when it hit the ground it swerved from the impact and then they regained control of it on the left side... I don't even remember tbh, but I'm guessing that is how it went.

Wow... Faldio annoys me. Is there this kind of relationship between Faldio and Alica in the game? I dont remember people saying about it


No there's nothing between them in the game.

I really enjoyed this episode especially for the character development of Faldio.

He can not hide his feelings for Alica anymore but respects the fact that Welkin seems to be closer to her. In addition to that he is a good friend. Therefore he wants to start the "love triangle fight" fair and square by telling Welkin about his feelings. Unfortunately Welkin is totally clueless in case of "man+woman relationships" and sees Alica only as a trustworthy comrade so far. :P

...looking forward to the next episode.

So, Faldio likes Alicia that much now? Makes me think that "that scene" in the game will be less likely to happen now.

By the way, what the hell happened to the fight with the Imperial humungo tank? Did they skip over it?

This is what I'm wondering too. In the game, Faldio seems to be mostly interested in saving his country so his actions make sense. But in the anime? Maybe they'll just skip it.

Welkin's decisions to take the shot did not sit well with Faldio, they didn't seem as buddy-buddy as they usually are at the end of an episode.

well they saved the princess and alicia, so all wells that ends well, even if that minister dude doesn't get his just desserts yet
the only way to stop a gamer from playing is either: beat them, or wait until they get bored (though 2% percent suffer seizures

Seems relations between Welkin and Faldio may get tense, although Alicia seems oblivious to this fact.

Hm, entertaining enough, but not anywhere near as much Alicia expression as I'd want.

Faldio's apparent ultimatum to Welkin is interesting. Does he have any interesting in directly competing with him for Alicia's affections? I think the scene implied no, but then without actually understanding the original translation, I am a bit at the mercy of the subtitles.
Oooh Miss Alicia
It's our own secret garden

This episode is great, but I felt this episode is rushed a bit for some reason. Still, I enjoyed it toward the end as I am surprised that Faldio likes Alicia. I am more surprised to see Welkin working with Jaeger and Selvaria to save Alicia and the princess.

Good episode. :D I guess I like the drama, but the action is good too... (More would be nice sometimes, though?)

I actually like Faldio at the moment... although, perhaps because he's voiced by the same guy that voiced Suzaku, I can't help but make a connection between the characters... I hope Faldio doesn't defect to the dark side over some silly love triangle. D: I like Alicia and Welkin as a pair, but it's almost strange how the episodes seem to show them as having developed some magical connection/bond of trust in no time at all... o_O (Thinking more on it though... It has been 12 episodes. Plenty of time for their relationship to grow. Guess it seems like all those episodes just whizzed by?!)

Whatever. GOOD EPISODE. I liked eet. :D

Unexpectedly easy cooperation from the Imperial generals. They must have been really bored to have so easily accepted working together temporarily, as the Empire is already at war with the Federation, anyway.

And so the love triangle is made official, and war is declared, by Faldio, no less. It's long time for Welkin to wake up and smell the coffee, anyway. Better than not getting any warning at all and have Alicia snatched by someone else right from under his nose (even if that someone else were to be his best friend).

Goddammit Faldio! I sensed a bit of evil from him too after that. I think Faldio and Welkin's friendship is going to be over shortly because of Alicia.

Also I really want Welkin X Alicia, screw Faldio.

I was hoping for more battles from this series though TBH. I'm feeling a little disappointed.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates Faldio. I've hated him since he was first introduced.
