THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Now I have to admit, this episode had a good feel of intense feelings as Sorey faces off against his biggest challenge yet.

It was a solid episode even with a bit of background storytelling. Sorey also learns more about his role in this struggle. Sadly, the finale will be delayed to next month. Kinda interesting to see Rose handing Zaveid the hat that Dezel gave to her as a way of entrusting his strength to him.

And i thought that this is the last episode and now it is delayed ... Not that i really care cause this season is really meh and today should've been the farewell for this series.
About the episode, well wrapped up some stuff and now for some reason they can use whatever powers they want, i guess power of friendship.

The only good thing about this episode is the fact that they did show what happened to Heldalf. But him wanting to reduce the Malevolence by coming to Mont Killaraus. lol They just wanted to make a link with Berseria and it was poorly done. It's funny how they messed everything with their stupid changes but now it's too late too correct things. Putting scenes that happen in the game won't save the anime.

And how dare they ??? Make Alisha armatize with Mikleo! No! Just no!
Have they even said that Lailah made an oath and that she wasn't able to tell them everything? Sorey found his answer too quickly and what the hell with this mega evolution armatization?!

And the final episode for April 29th? Geez, I thought this mess would end today...
Well, we'll see for the next game. But I just hope ufotable won't do Tales of anime adaptations anymore.

I can't believe those assholes on Tumblr actually called Rainbow!Sorey. IT WAS A JOKE, UFOTABLE.

I'm so sad that we won't get the last episode until the end of April. I was ready for the ending; now I'm left super curious.

Got to see the memories of the Calamity King. He was cursed with solitude because Michael cursed it upon him so he won't hurt anyone else. Sorey looks cool with his new armatization.

First of all, i'm really happy with how the story goes.. it put some of the story that the game have and they alter it with the best way possible.

I'm really happy to see Alisha Armatized.. the way ufotable handle Alisha is somewhat make me really happy happy because of her treatment that she get in the game. She also able to armatize with Mikleo. not that i ship both oh them, it just make me really happy..

The flashback really follow the game, eventhough the place where they flashback is different.. it come out really great for this series..

One thing i need to mention, they fxxking do a contract infront of the enemy??
It was like "WTF??". then just laughed it of because of anime logic.. Haha

Nice to get some background. Pretty enjoyable episode overall...That transformation though. lol
Its garishness is pretty consistent with the rest of the character designs in this show.

Yeah like really what does alisha and rose add to the main story ? hell they could give this back story episode on its own but NO they must waste time on alish and rose to satisfied the waifufags from the game

back in ep 9 how can you waste 70%of the episode on alisha side pointless story and 30% on sorey purifying the dragon ?

"Water, Earth, Fire, Air. Long ago, humans and seraphim lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the King of Calamity attacked. Only the Shepherd, master of all four elements, could stop him, but........"

Oh shit, wrong show lol.

Anyway, interesting backstory about the previous Shepherd and the King of Calamity. It's a shame though that now we have to wait a month to see Rainbow Sorey take down the enemy.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Okay, Heldalf's backstory was nice and the ending implied an epic battle will happen the next episode.
But, a thing that was bothering me, if Maotelus was fighting Heldalf, where were the other 4 Empyreans? Did they got killed or they just didn't gave a fuck about what was happening?

Well, now it's the time to wait to April to complete this. Ufotable just pulled another God Eater, lol.

Waaaaaah the bad guy has a shred of humanity? That's just crazy! I mean it's not like they told us he went to an isolated place away from humans. It's not like they repeated that statement anywhere in the show. I mean how were we suppose to question why he went through all that trouble if they are now just bringing it up? That's just crazy!

Sorey your lack of revelation until now is dumbfounding. Good thing they had a backup wind guy or Captain Planet wouldn't have been summoned. Now to wait a month for a single battle scene and to wrap up the story. And possibly another sales pitch to buy Tales of Berseria.

its funny how they took a dump on the game's story. they even made heldalf look like a bigger asshole than he was in the game.

Well, it was really a good ep., the fight was intense, but really... WHY THE FU** THEY COULDN'T THIS AS A HOUR SPECIAL END?!!! I don't see the logic...>_>


Edit: I do hope at least then, that at end of the last ep. what very nice announcing will (like with the adaptation of Berseria, because I wanna more of Velvet see...xD), if we having wait...

I thought this was the last episode and was totally surprised when it ended right after Sorey transformed. Nevertheless, it was a pretty decent episode.

The memories with the previous Shepard and Heldaf were nice I guess despite being pretty rushed.

Well there was obviously gonna be a powerup to defeat the Lord of Calamity, expecting a good fight since the fight this episode wasn't particularly great.

Just a little bit above the game bullshit. Disappointed they did not end up using Velvet for more than just few cameos. Zestiria could have been saved if the entire endgame was replaced.

Overall this was mediocre show with uninspired storyboarding and no cinematography or fight choreography in sight. What was there was pretty much reused storyboards from UfoUBW and GodEater, so nothing that great. A third stinker in a row for Ufotable. Not looking that good.

I thought I would drop this but thankfully Alisha getting screentime she DESERVED in game and some of the game's braindead plotpoints being removed made me stick through it. Still final score is 4/10

I wonder If I will remember this show in a month when last episode airs.

I did't play the game, so I could enjoy the episode. And this was one of the best.

Interesting background with Heldalf and the former shepherd. On the other hand, very surprising that he sacrificed himself and his nephew for a strange curse. Unbelievable for a shepherd - was there no other solution? (or a direkt-kill)?

And the rest feels a bit rushed, the power-ups don't seem to be a problem anymore (recently, is was very heavy and almost fatal). Now Edan could easily change the team to Rose; Mikleo with Alisah.
But of course, it was cool, that Sorey could unite all in the end.

Dam I just knew this would happen one day. Btw does anyone know If Shepherds can have wives? That way I can believe even stronger that Alisha or Rose or both will end up being his wives(Polygamy). Or does he have to retire as a Shepherd?

Sorey combining/armatization all the nature elements of the Seraph is cool

I think this was planned way before the season started. Only 12 eps was confirmed and it was only yesterday was when we found out it gets an extra ep.

Interesting. I did not expect him to armatize with all 4 elements at once.

The curse prevents him from having meaningful conversation with other people? That sucks...

Rose and Alisha are now experts armatizing with anyone? I like both so whatever.

It was pretty obvious that sorey was going to armatize with everyone at once and he looks good.

Heldelf is a good guy, he let them talk and make their contract.

One month...

Episodes usually get delays like that because somebody fucks up the schedule. IT just shows that the production was a mess.

Nobody willingly delays an episode by a MONTH.

Though that this season was 12 episode then the preview happened announcing the next episode titled "Legend". So exited, started jumping up and down. Next episode 29th April ... Fuck!

Anyways. This was an OK episode overall.
