Valkyria Chronicles Anime

Post by NastyNate » Thu Nov 03, 2011 11:37 pm

I recently got around to watching Valkyria Chronicles and I could not be more pleased. It really captured almost the whole time that team element that 08th Ms team lost at the middle. I really enjoyed how the show tackled racism and showed how ridiculous it is. The interaction between characters was great. A couple of generic anime cliches but overall very entertaining. And after the part where:

Isara died, which i majorly cried at
It really began to pick up. Very good series and highly recommended by me. What are your thoughts of the show?

Have not seen this one yet, but I have seen a playthrough of the game it's based on and I've heard about some of the differences between the two.

I enjoyed the anime, though I've been told that's because I haven't played the games.

What did anyone think of.

i have finished the game when i watch it. and i do developed a special hatred for enemy snipers in the game after that spoilerific event. the anime was okay. since it mostly a complete port of what happen in the game. mostly being the keyword here.
SpoilerShow
the love triangle was not in the game. i dont hate it. i just treat it as some sort alternate version of the story.
lastly, Selvaria is the true star of the show, i watch the anime simply so i can see more of Selvaria.

The game was better I feel, the end of the anime seemed a little more rushed and cliched somehow, but the anime had its own good points too. I very much enjoyed both of them and am thoroughly disappointed that VC3 doesn't appear to be on its way to the states. Probably end up having to import, blah.
SpoilerShow
Isara T______T

Love triangle? With Faldio? Umm...well I really found Faldio likable, but knew it wasn't going anywhere 'cause of the game, so I guess I never considered it as such. I can't really see it being too genuine though, I feel like Faldio was more a pretty face for her to fall for. I mean he was smart and all too, but...I dunno, he seemed more like the ephemeral too-good-to-be-true option, as compared to Welkin (who is also awesome).
Oh man, Selvaria. Best character in the entire franchise. <3

In the end of the series do we have a confirmed that
SpoilerShow
Fladio got killed or somehow survived?
Also I though for sure that in the end
SpoilerShow
Weilkien was going to turn into a valkyria and pwn maximillian.
In the game do they
SpoilerShow
go in more depth with the ending of weilkien and alichia if they get married and raise a family?
After looking on the psn I noticed that edy has her own dlc and so does Selvaria. So I am guessing that they get more into edys character in the game because she was a very minor character in the anime. Kind of the same with selvaria, she was a main character but did not get as much attention as squad 7.

Yes they do show more. I'm not going to spoil exactly what though. It must be seen for yourself.

Wasn't Isara such a great character? She was probably my favorite character.

Yeah of the main 5 good guys, she was unexpectedly my favorite. Generally I'm not a big fan of her type of character, the soft spoken, not particularly strong seeming girl, but she had a lot of inner strength, ingenuity, and really endeared me to her despite all my initial expectations.

Gosh she was such a hard worker and so forgiving.

Why do animes have to always kill off the people that have had the worst life?
On a side note to make us feel better about isara just think about.

You know one character I couldn't stand? Georg Damon. He was like that fat blond guy in 00 Season 2 but worse.
SpoilerShow
The moment he stomped on Isara's memorial, that just put him in my top 10 most hated anime characters.

Agreed that is the general I was speaking of in my above comment. I can't believe he rose through the ranks and became a high ranking officer. Could not stand when he tore down Isara's tonic or how he gave squad 7 a hard time after being such a coward himself.

It would be some very good bread indeed. According to the game, she can also make cinnamon rolls too, so I definitely want to try some of them.
I could also learn to live with the spoilered part as well.

But the real question is would anyone want to have a winged porcavian for a pet?

Depends, do they taste like regular bacon?

Whaaaaat? I wouldn't really!
