The show definitely takes a turn for the weird with the new Director that's for sure.

there's no way this is true, I just watched 19 and Coco's reflecting on past events as she's typing on her computer and it again shows the scene where her legs get crushed that they show in one of the earlier episodes of the show.

Wait wat.
If she died, how is she still alive.
They'd have to edit every episode, not just two.

What the hell were they thinking?

I see an incoming drop. Too bad, as I kind of enjoyed the series too.

And lol if they seriously think this would increase dvd/blu-ray sales.

y the fuck does he need to alter the story, we need to rewatch it, altering the first 3 epi means there might have a need to atlter the remainding episodes that the previous director did, can't the new director just fucking go on the story?

Just watched episode 13.
They've already changed his reason to go to the moon.

This episode sucks big time.
You can tell something has changed in production

The synopsis says nothing of the sort. I do see "Coco goes lame," which is correct.

But Coco was the one who spread the rumors of Dan and the rest via Ultimate Bystander. How the hell are they going to change all of that now? What is going to be Dan's new motivation to go to the moon? What will even happen to all of Dan's character development?

The only way I can even imagine that possible is if they come up with a new character that is Coco, and the current Coco is changed to being someone else entirely like a friend that he lives with or something... but seriously how is that even possible when she's in every like 9 out of 10 episodes typing on her computer.

Maybe the editing will make the story interesting then? ;)

Well, having watched all of the later works of Kawamori, I highly doubt it, but well...

Oh jeez.
Why do this now?
yeah seriously..

If this is true, and that's a huge IF, it would call for a complete re-write of the series with a shitty director at the helm.

Goodnight Sweet Prince.

So now what D: damn it.

This is definitly a fake

Although it would be interesting to see how this would play out.

Edit: Although Valkyria Chronicles has shown the difference in storyline from game to TV, and both storylines are pretty stellar. So this may not be a total negative if it is real.
