Even though I have never played the game before, I truly enjoyed this movie, especially because I can see Yuri being animated:D
Anyways, enjoyable movie with nice fighting action, Flynn can be really annoying sometimes and I like the twins. The sad moment was the dog Repede waiting for his papa, it was so sad;_;
Overall I enjoyed it and like it, rate it 9/10. I wish I can see more Yuri being animated:)

An awesome movie just as expected any Tales series.

This movie has much more impact to me than episode 13 of Angel Beats!, really.

I now need a TV Series of the game, A LOT

I have a question: I still haven't played the game yet, so I'm just wondering, does the animation on the credits can also be found in the game? I mean, is it a cutscene or something?
it's the opening video.

Epic fail if he has the game and beat it.

It wasn't perfect, but I really enjoyed it. The only faults were with continuity.

And Rita~! She was absolutely adorable. I was reminded why I love her so much.
And her seiyuu is great. I can't wait to get the PS3 Vesperia.

Really enjoyable and I'm very happy that they didn't throw in all the main characters somewhere from the game since that usually feels so tagged on. Some plot holes here and there but nothing that you can't easily turn a blind eye on.

It was nice to see some more backstory on Flynn and Yuri, and if I ever get a puppy I'm gonna force him to walk around with a pipe in his mouth.

"what happened to our captain?"
...
...
"Yuri?"
"At least he went out in style"

that is the coolest way to tell someone they died.

when i die (if i can die), that is the way i want it to be told im dead

but its true, the captain went out like he was the mothafucking greatest, and then to make it cooler he had to do the "i cant move, go on without me" number also saying something like "you have to save as many people as you can" this one instance is what i like to call "G Overload" (G is for gangsta/greatness, depending on the situation, in this case both) and when this happens devastating things can happen to either party, you never know how it will turn out, but it is always captivating

other than that decent movie 8/10

oh and the dog progressing from a spoon to a pipe, that was a good one

About the twins...

There were also some (evil) girl twins in the game. It's been one year since I played it though, but is it possible that these are in fact the same persons?

Good movie, really what I wanted as a ToV-fan. But now I want japanese voices in the game even more...

You're thinking of Droite and Gauche, who aren't really twins, iirc. Not the same girls.

But the two girls in this movie make a cameo in the PS3 version of ToV, I believe.

Nice one. Enjoyed this movie immensely with vivid colors and fluid animation. The ending showed the preview for the second installation? The fights look great. I'm excited.

Well, it was a nice little prequel but it was kinda lame that a lot of tie ins were with the PS3 version. Mostly the characters like those twins and the guild leader. Besides that, I'm sure they (Yuri and Flynn) mention something from this movie in the game too.

I enjoyed it immensely. Very good characters and an interesting and exciting story, presented with nice art/animation and a great soundtrack.

It really made me want to play the game; sadly I don't own a 360.

Finally got around to watching this movie. Haven't played the game, but I got a pretty good grasp as to what the game is about.

And I must say, this movie kind of sucked. Maybe I was expecting too much out of it, but they only explored the past of Yuri and Flynn. Little cameos of Rita, Estelle, and Raven were pointless if they weren't gonna delve deeper into their stories. Then the actual antagonist of the movie is found and killed in the last 10 minutes of the movie...wtf? His evil motives were also weak and unclear. AND I COUNTED ONLY 1 ARTE USED IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE.

I did enjoy the comedic parts though, especially the quarrels with the twins, Yuri, and Flynn. Also the part where Nylen says he wants the bigger one of the twins to go with him, and they accuse him of sexual harassment, haha.

Is it bad that I had a YurixHisca pairing thought in my head throughout the whole movie?

Rewatched this again and I do have to say, I'm sticking with my 9/10 score because this movie is a great watch. I love the style and I like the twins and captain. It could have been something more/else but it's not. It's fine as a fan service movie if not for Flynn alone. I think all of his angry faces were absolutely p r i c e l e s s.

I liked the movie, but the plot holes made it hard to take the movie as a REAL prequel to the game.

There won't be another movie.
This movie was a prequel from the game Tales of Vesperia xD
So you'll have to play the game if you want to know what happens after this movie :3

I liked this movie. Nice to see a fantasy movie like this not be centered around war.

The only part I didn't like was Yuri being flung up onto the golem. Because that was just hacking. The rest was believable enough.

This movie was great, thought rather simple compared to the games plot. But it was meant to be so. this was during time a when the knights were just starting to learn how to control the blastia and learn bout Air. I really loved the bond between Flynn and Yuri, my two favorite characters from the game. Though im kind of disappointed that Rita got very little screen time, but i guess that is to be expected, yuri does not cross paths with her her until the game.

Either way it was a well thought movie and i enjoyed it 8/10

Oh and btw for those of you who have not played the game, do so. It is an incredible game with a much larger complex story with many awesome villains, etc. This movie was mainly a very small short sub plot that was a prequel to the games massive story line. If you watch the credits at the end, all those events were from the game.

Just finished watching it

Great movie for a great game
Nice Mieu cameo

I've rated it 9/10 would be 10/10 if Yuri and Flynn used Azure Edge at the end

I watched it dubbed and Rita, Raven and Estelle had different voices than the game but they did a good job although I prefer Raven's game voice

Overall great movie
Signature removed.

Just seen the movie and damn, I liked it. I was going to ask the question what these animations were from the ending. Glad to see that it is from the game. :)

Looks like I need to buy a xBox. xD Because there isn't an English version for PS3.. :(

i believe so, a lot of people in this forum didn't seem to even know that this was just a sequel to the video game and not an actual movie series (like me) and they said they loved the movie and had to get the game

That was surprisingly good. Started off with a nice action scene. And the characters were all developed nicely. I was hoping for some romance though, I hear theres barely any in the game. The art wasnt great but it wasnt bad either. The OST was damn epic as well.

I really want to know what happens next, so I guess I better buy the game. The teaser in the credits looked pretty epic and it seems like Yuri and Flynn might be frenemies in the game.

8/10

movie reminded me how great a game vesperia was, movie itself was great, wasny expecting it to get so heavy. That captain was badass, wish he didnt die. The final fight was sweet too

Seriously namco, make more tales movies like this, and for that matter make a vesperia 2
