How can anyone even doubt who the best girl is.
That's a man. And Rose exists.
Rose a best.
Although Rose is okay with me, she is not the best.
Edna and Laila trump her easily.
This is my first time experiencing an anime where 'best girl' is a guy so if I'm being frank I'm pretty confused.
He's best waifu and winner of the Soreybowl, but that's not saying much when he's still as one-dimensional as all the girls.
Sorey was just as one dimensional anon, the problem with Zestiria overall was that it didn't allow the characters to grow or develop.
It's pretty terrible in Mikleo's case since there was so much that they could have done.
You're right. He's as one-dimensional as everyone else in general. Which still isn't good.
Sorey atleast got some semblance of an arc about salvation killing. Zaveid has something similar too and Dezel has his clusterfuck of a backstory with Rose/Sparrows.
But Mikleo only exists to be cummed inside by the protagonist and Sorey is a prude who would never want to lewd his waifu with his dick.
With Mikleo it's truly frustrating since you can actually see where they could have included more development for him, but the setting wouldn't have allowed for it.
Hence why the idea of Mikleo becoming tainted and with him Sorey is so popular. Since it would allow Sorey and Mikleo to reach their full potential as characters and would allow Sorey to use Mikleo in the way he meant to be used.
Well the problem itself is that Mikleo lacks agency outside of Sorey. Him becoming tainted with Sorey wouldn't really fix that. He just needed more ambitions and relations that don't ultimately connect to Sorey. Like rewriting his relationship with his mom, fleshing out his relationship with the village Seraphs, wanting to become a powerful Seraph to never let another Calmamity happen again after being the catalyst of it, etc.
Tainted AU exists just for lewd.
Well exploring that would be a problem because a lot of Mikleo's feelings regarding those things would be negative. It'd be things that create doubt in him or make him depressed and with Zestiria that's a nono.
I've seen the tainted AU used for making Mikleo and also Sorey more open with their emotions, since a lot of Zestiria ignores the fact that a lot of positive things can come from negative emotions, and in many way not being able to truly experience negative emotions without turning into a monster means that you can never learn to overcome them or grow stronger.
Macross does the same thing, the answer is to increase Blu-Ray sales, since the Blu-Ray version will likely be a combination of both versions. It actually gives viewers the incentive to get put forth the money and buy the Blu-Rays.
>a lot of Mikleo's feelings regarding those things would be negative
It really doesn't have to be though. Having determination to make the world better is a pure thought. I mean we already have Rose killing people yet maintaining her purity. What I'm saying is that Mikleo needed to be more than 'I love Sorey'.
Speaking of the taint though, you'll like this episode if you like Mikleo being affected by the malevolence.
Mikleo has a lot of negative emotions though. And let's be honest even though the story had Rose "pure assassin" shtick it was very much bullshit. I'm agreeing with you, but overall what I'm saying is that the game could have benefited from having the characters explore their negative emotions instead of just hiding them. The logic behind the world of Zestiria feels really childish.
>The logic behind the world of Zestiria feels really childish.
I really hope they'll change how malevolence works in the anime.
I think that if Zestiria woudln't be so bad in this department if the characters had acknowledged that malevolence as a concept was childish and made no sense. Even if they took the route of Abyss and had characters attempt to erase the existence of malevolence without killing everyone in the world.
Meebo is just afraid of a girl as perfect as Rose existing and taking away Sorey from him.
And he should be afraid.
But Sorey only has eyes for Mikleo.
>Mikleo is [his] friend, partner on an equal footing, but there’s a sense of distance like a “sister” between Alisha and [Sorey]
Well technically it's never stated whether younger or older.
>implying they'd give a fuck
>implying they can cuck this
I doubt either could deal with Sorey nerding out over ruins.
>cucking epilogue Mikleo
Mikleo hit max level while Sorey was asleep, he's basically uncuckable at this point.
Anon we already know the ending that's in store for Alisha.
Hello, newfag. How was your first week on /a/?
It's a meme. Started off on /v/. They found it so hilarious that Mikleo was defaulted into cooking. Then they noticed that he was a tsundere and childhood friend so the hivemind over there declared him to be perfect kawaii waifu desu.
The filthy cancerous crossboarders brought it over here and that's where we're at today.
Don't be a moron, it's because of shit like this and how little development we got of the characters in the game.
Fujoshits do the work all on their own.
>How's animu? Is it any better than games? Is it retale or sequel?
It's okay. It's going at a snail's pace. So far the only good part was Symonne appearing in episode 1 and Sorey's fight with the fox assassin, it was very F/SN-like.
>It was boring as fuck and gameplay is fucking shit.
It's really incredible how Xillia 2 could be such an amazing game, and then Zestiria just throws away all of that and makes the most basic, boring Tales game yet. Really, if they just copied Graces f's battle system and changed the morale overlimit to a BG I'd love the game.
Did we get any anime-related material of Graces by the way?
Didn't the creators also say that a relationship between Sorey and the two human females wouldn't work? Also an interview in Tales Magazine whey they said that they literally created Mikleo to complement Sorey's character.
Who knows how the anime will handle Alisha this time. It's likely she will find some way to stay or at least seperate on better terms than the game.
Sorey's va said that it is still a straight adaptation, but with various changes.
Would you wait for and be faithful to your husbando for 700 years, /a/?
>Where does this 700 years worth of semen meme even come from
Sword Art Online
>implying Mikleo didn't give his boipussy to some brunette shepherd he helped along the way
No way someone looking like Mikleo could survive being pure for that long
Nah man Mikleo was all about the Sorey D. He even stopped his own aging just to make sure that Sorey could recognize him. He probably lost his purity of mind by thinking about how hard he'll ride Sorey when he wakes up.
>jerking off to memories of your teen boyfriend for 700 years
Which is why Sorey must make it up to him by filling Mikleo with the semen and making him the proper waifu that he was born to be.
>wake up from centuries long magic sleep
>still a teenager
>your twink boyfriend is now taller than you and has had hundreds of years to read and imagine about all the depraved shit he's going to do when you wake up
>you're at his mercy
What do anons
Sorey is immortal too and Serpahs can age based on perception so it won't take long for Sorey to actually outgrow Mikleo since Mikleo perceives himself to be smaller than Sorey. All Sorey needs to do is percieve himself as taller and the same age as Mikleo.
Plus whatever depraved things Mikleo has in store I'm sure it's all things that he's considered that Sorey will enjoy.
I actually like this artist's Sorey, he's fucking hilarious.
Why is Mikleo so curvy?
>Imagine about all the depraved shit he's going to do when you wake up
Like investigating ruins? Mikleo is pure.
Somehow the concept of Sorey potentially not remembering Mikleo beyond some vague memories gets my dick hard. Mikleo would've waited all those years to reunite with a stranger. He would feel self conscious about how much he has changed and think Sorey wouldn't like it.
Because he was raised to be Sorey's waifu
>Mikleo is pure
Mikleo has 700years to grow out of his purity.
>Somehow the concept of Sorey potentially not remembering Mikleo beyond some vague memories gets my dick hard.
Okay 1. you're terrible and 2. So much of what makes Sorey Sorey is connected with Mikleo, his preferences and hobbies are all tied with Mikleo to the point that in order for Sorey to remember anything about himself he'd end having to remember Mikleo as a result.
>the concept of Sorey potentially not remembering Mikleo beyond some vague memories gets my dick hard
Yeah OK Satan
Why do people use this number?
Also it's not like it was confirmed Sorey remembered anything, so the situation is still plausible. Sorey could remember that he's supposed to feel strongly about Mikleo but does not connect it to the present Mikleo. Sorey could develop a different personality as a Seraph and fall in love with some NPC girl.
There are a hundred ways that you can make SUFFERING out of this. My dick is twitching.
>Thread is full of yaio shit
>Meanwhile I'm here wondering how shitty it must be for Rose and Alisha to realize they'll never see Sorey again and how he feels when he finds their graves
>Rose and Alisha to realize they'll never see Sorey again
DLC kinda touches on this.
>how he feels when he finds their graves
If what is known about the rebirth into a seraphim is accurate he won't feel much about it. At best it will be a longly distant memory and at worst it'll be like a character reset for him and he'll only retain his personality.
I just fought
Sophie Lhant from Gracesin Hexen Isle in Zestiria. Holy shit she was strong. I had to use an All Divide so her random mystic artes don't kill my entire party at once.
For a game that heavily focuses on element damage, why does every single enemy and boss resist all but a single element most times? Kind of a pain in the ass, especially since all of your combo strings use many elements, and the second you hit an enemy with an element they resist they can break out of the combo and slap you silly.
>especially since all of your combo strings use many elements
What? Bullshit. It shouldn't be hard to find a combo that only uses one element, or one element and non-elemental. You can't just spam the same direction over and over.
>Most boss battles should be done Armatized anyway so it's not a lot to remember.
Which are full of just one element attacks. When an boss resists all but one element the armatization becomes useless unless it's that one element, so while you're armatized and using it, your party members are virtually useless.
>The system is made for you to be controlling all characters at once.
>All characters at once.
I don't think you've actually played the game.
This is what controlling all characters does in the dragon fightthree banish blasts per stun. That was on a first play through file so not even OP.
Learn to play and get good.
Congrats, you learned how to switch characters. That's not what I'm saying.
Whatever, I give up. You keep going on tangents to brag about shit that has nothing to do about my complaints.
Oh, man. Look at those tits.
Something more to the effect that romance really doesn't mix with Sorey.
I just want my DeSu1 adaptation
Pure of heart assassin that targets the wrong person. I can trust that.
Also, only fan would watch that far so it explains the ratings.
And yet Rose wasn't able to kill her was she? And top of that Rose is now being framed as a villain or at the very least a tool of an obviously evil official. The only person who was shit in this episode was Rose.
Apparently Tales of Zestiria the X is guilty of this
>but right now it is pretty much template-work with reused frames, storyboards and scenes from their other shows and stuff and low effort fight choreography.
>Copy pasting shit form your previous works is right in line with his soulless approach
Anyone got some examples?
And here I thought ufotable would do an anime without Fate stuff. Guess they just can't stay away from it.
Except now Rose is no longer the infallible bitch she was allowed to be in the game, you can't argue that she's superior to anyone. Rose being framed as a villain increases ratings.
Would you protect a Mikleo from malevolence?
>this is supposed to look like a tuxedo
Yeah, isn't it possible that the people who rated the show negatively dropped it while people who love the Tales series (or are fujos) kept on watching? That doesn't exactly give a clear indication of whether or not the anime is good or bad.
This kid is a born husbando, chivalrous as fuck
And just like that, the show is saved
What a cutie. n-no homo.
>tfw you'll never have a husbando who shields you from harm
Instead of rose showing up at that time to try and kill alisha, some peasant jumped into the flames and turned into a kyouma and started attacking people left and right.
Rose will later right her wrong by offing that fat old faggot later anyway. The argument is a moot point as usual.
Oh right, Lailah and Sorey dont usually fuse until the first dungeon in Lady Lake
So basically the reason Sorey becomes a shepherd is because some Naruto fucker threatened his husbando?
I really, really hope they change how malevolence works. It seriously disables the characters from growing. Oh, a character gets angry? MALEVOLENCE! Someone hurts Sorey and Mikleo wants revenge? MALEVOLENCE! Sorey is upset at seeing bullying? MALEVOLENCE! Characters must be 100% happy all the time, no matter what.
Some Brave New World shit that is.
Week from the start the only people that would ever pay for an assassin would be those seeking revenge and those who were corrupt to begin with. Which is why Rose didn't make any sense.
Okay, in that case
Yellow > blue > green > red
The basic plot of Berseria is "Fuck that purity shit, nigga."
They did sound alike~
I have to say, never played Zestiria, coming into the anime Merchant Girl seems fun
And yes I know there was a shitshow about her in the game, but she is more interesting than that boring princess
They are both honestly great. The only ones who still care are the ones who were upset that they basically bait and switched alisha for rose.
But many people in that world could wield daggers~
Assassins do originate from Old Men of the Mountain.
Also, you can't spell Assassin with 2 "Ass"es. I hope she'll get more costume than the game. She's already in her last costume that I obtained from the game.
Wait a fucking minute
It seems like I've ignored this for over a year but those things on Mikleo's clothes aren't BELTS are they??
I literally had her dressed up in her assassin gear the whole time because of how dumb the whole thing was.
Yes i know. She was bland and had a dumb as bricks reason to get away with the crap she does.
As a character shes fine though. So is alisha
Look at the viewer count, it keep getting lower each episode, and especially in this, the count is down drastically with each episode, those who don't like it already drop this
Most of those designs are perfectly acceptable though
As much as i love Luso, god dammit man
OUR GODDESS IS FINALLY HERE
Her royal line is probably made from incest.
Not sure where you got that statistic from, but if there's merch that panders, they will buy it.
Patiently waiting for lewd mousepads and body pillows because I would pre-order official ones.
>the writer of zestiria
You mean yamamoto? they've actually have tried to murder him before
now he's in hiding, he never appear on public again, just like baba
Lailah's voice was better than i expected
I thought it was going to sound very different than her voice in the game but it seems the only difference is she sounds a little younger
props to her replacement
From the official report and study in japan
Free sold really well, but still, more than half of those number are from DVD sales
If it helps, the Prequel, Berseria, is all about one woman raging at such a stupid, nihilistic concept
Holy shit. There's actually people in the city.
I think hes surprised because there wasnt any in the game.
>more lonely than you can ever imagine
doesn't seem very lonely to me
It's funny how Rose justifies her assassination of Alisha by saying it'll save the most innocent lives
That's literally Artorious
She said that he'd have to make decisions which would make him lonely. I assume this means some RPing where two opposite characters will be mad if you choose sides.
This is why it's important for him to be Zen = have no opinion one way or the other. It also means no sex but he's got that covered from the start.
Speaking of costumes - Although Berseria does have DLC costumes, there will be costumes unlocked in game through minigames and sidequests
Cool transformation, she's also cute
red head is also
the episode felt so slow I wanted to hurry and watch the scene where he pulls the sword
Reminds me of Kingdom Hearts and how there's never any NPCs except non combat zones. And even still, it's devoid of life. Except that was in 2005.
Never liked how it sounded like there was a mega crowd but like 10 NPCs max standing perfectly still. Even KH's NPCs would walk around in circles or, ya know, breathe.
Lailah lost a bust size.
That was a hilarious fiasco too. It turned out that all of the DLC for Alisha that was advertised before release could also be wearable by Rose, because otherwise you would have paid for DLC that was only usable for a quarter of the game.
But WHY is Kairi dressed as a cat?
Because the few people who decide that thought their alternative would be better somehow.
>takes a single politicians word as truth
>don't even bother to look up more info from other sources
I think Rose is mistaking homolust for bloodlust
She thinks Alisha is too soft and for some reason that's triggering her mighty hard
Guess that's what happens when you go full Artorious Robot Mode, you just start murdering people on principle
>She was a useless naive cunt there.
Baba made her that way so he could justify replacing her with Rose. Why would anyone care about that? Baba's not even in the project anymore.
She probably talked with the citizens and they all felt they were doomed in some way.
I mean the merchant thing is basically just for information gather and free travel, the assassin thing is their main gig.
I like how they're doing more things with Lunarre in the anime. He felt so pointless in the game.
