This.
Her being a happy tomboy persona was pretty damn cute.
And they are already showing her cold blooded murder attitude in a bad light so they'll probably fix that somehow which I'm looking forward to.

So what I gather from a season of lurking these threads is that no one actually enjoys anything from Zestiria aside from the fujos off in their own little world, and the entire Zestiria "fanbase" consists of Rosefags reveling in Alishafags getting mad, Alishafags reveling in Rosefags getting mad, fujos happily dumping cute boys in the background, those two Ednafags, and that one Lailahfag.

She can't go on killing people like this or she's gonna end up like Michael. Her idea of removing Malevolence is probably kill anyone who can't be purified.

Her whole conflict with Alisha was about killing not being a solution. She'd have slaughtered Alisha in cold blood like she did with the bishop if Alisha couldn't defend herself like she did. Who knows if she hadn't killed other people who meant well like Alisha before.

Wait, you're actually telling me that Ufotable is looking likely to address those issues.

Oh wow, ok, that's kinda interesting.

Yes and that's why Rose needs to change before she becomes a squire unless they just want to leave the story as fucked as it was in the game.
>>
Lots of Baba today
>>
>>151999866
Considering how Sorey doesn't even have a reason to keep her around, because he's too strong, there's no reason why he can't just leave her ass.
>>
>>152000211
He needs squires to share his power with after he goes to sleep and continue purifying hellions and it'll probably end up being both Rose and Alisha in the anime.
>>
>>151999469
That was the ED. Flow is still doing the OP.
>>
>>152000503
Then Lailah can find a new shephard since Rose isn't the only one with a high resonance in the world. But for the purpose of Sorey's journey he has no reason to stick around Rose, since he's actually strong enough to take on Hedalf himself.
>>
>>152000547
No, that was the OP. It just happened to be at the end.
Flow will do the ED next episode. It's this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reBBW2zZVc8

She'd probably fuck that up.
Also there's no way they'll just ditch Rose after focusing on her in the second cour.
>>
>>152000666
Doujins of what? Rose and Alisha? The chance is close to zero even with your Satan boosted double trips.
>>
>>152000755
She'll be fucking up by even considering Rose for the position at all, especially when she has no reason to. Which is my point, the anime has no reason for why a Squire would be needed. Alisha didn't get the to become squire because the story needed her to do it. They're just trying to copy the game's story beats without copying the game's explanations for doing it in the first place.
>>
>>152000666

>Doujin of anything Tales related
That double trips tho.

>>152000974
There's a million gay Sorey and Mikleo doujins though. Just no one cares about the girls

I'm not that anon and don't have anything to say on video game consumers, but that's a shitty argument.

Isn't it obvious this season will flop too?

Any Rosefags likely dropped this after a s1 of just Alisha.

We know there arent that many Alishafags watching because s1 was a failure. And even if they are, they wont be giving anything to a season with Rose

Fujos keep beign ignored, first for more Alisha and ow for mroe Rose, so they wont be buying this either.

>>152006494
>Isn't it obvious this season will flop too?
Obviously. Actually, in terms of anime sales, a season half/season almost never does better than the first. It always does worst. First cour flopped even with the event ticket, so second cour will do a bit less.

I doubt Zestiria's total average won't be beat Tales of Abyss' anime's, which ended up at 9k. 6k is the highest I see this going.
>>
>>152006494
There aren't many Rosefags to begin with so they never should have even tried to appease to Rosefags if they wanted to make money.

Neither was Edna's snark after the first 6xs. Zestiria had a shitty script and gimmicky cast, so I don't really care that they cut it out the anime. It was objectively stupid because some people actually liked that though, and they only put them in BD box skits.

>Heh. Do you think that if Rose was a guy, the anime would be more of a success?
He'd be shipped with Sorey and Mikleo pretty hard, I'd imagine.
Ufotable would shaft him all the same though. They clearly didn't know their audience making this script.

Going to be honest. Zestiria's cast is decent but probably my least favorite Tales cast in terms of chemistry. Their skits are repetitive and corny, and not really funny. Individually, they bring nothing to the table because they never develop. Their biggest strong point is simply their designs.

I expected the anime to atleast make the cast feel more like a found family than the game did, but by hyperfocusing on only one or two characters and ditching the others, they manage to make them seem even flatter than before. It's baffling how you just can't fix Zestiria without a major overhaul.
>>
>>152008852
The edited scene give more fantasy fibe while making it less edgy.
I still rather have them to somehow include option to toggle cutscene though.

But they are canon.

>>152009536

>>
>>152009329
Zestiria's cast is the only Tales cast where I like every character. There's always one that just annoys me in the others, like Genis.

But the story is just so half-assed and the villain so boring, it doesn't even really matter.
>>
>>152009728
No they aren't. It's purely up to interpretation even in game.
>>
>>152009536
"Cum" means "with", you uncultured swine.
>>
>>152009329
You can, but you just have to not be an idiot about it. Instead of focusing on the two irrelevant characters, they should focus on the main character, Sorey, since is also the heart of the party, and it is HIS journey and he has the most interactions with the other characters, you're actually killing about 3x birds with one stone just by keeping the spotlight on him. Afterwards is Lailah and Mikleo who play a big part in Sorey's journey and also have their own arcs that they need to overcome that are related to the story, and whom it's actually important for the viewers to care for. Then after that is Zaveid whose a mysterious yet knowledgeable figure, then everybody else. The problem with the anime is that it fails basic writing in that it didn't even differentiate side characters from main characters and treated them acvordingly.
>>
>>152009796
Not them, but if it's up to interpretation doesn't mean that if someone wants to believe they are canon they are by the standards? It's not like it goes against to the story so far telling me they can't think of their relationship like that.
>>
>>152009917
*telling them
>>
>>152009863
No shit, really?
>>
>>152009900
It was pretty jarring to me that season 1 almost seemed to be more about Alisha than Sorey.
>>
>>152009917
Not them, but I dont think it works like that. To me when you say something is canon, it means its not open to interpretation, as its been made clear.
>>
>>152009863
Who writes like that though? Seriously.
>>
>>152009917
Well yeah. A truly canon pairing isn't up to interpretation though, it's pretty concrete. Sorey/Mikleo is simply heavily implied at most. There is nothing suggesting they're going to bang after their reunion, just that they're spending their lives together.
>>
>>152010074
It's Latin, you plebeian. It's used everywhere.
>>
>>152010027
Yeah that's exactly the problem, Ufotable is choosing to focus on side characters instead of their main characters is a problem that shows just how shitty Ufotable's writing staff is.
>>
>>152010074
They could have translated as warehouse-slash-office. But that would have been weirder.

Or just dropped it altogether and gone with "and" or "with".
>>
Why did they make a Rose centric episode with filler scenes that add nothing to the plot besides, "Oh look at how smart and leader-like Rose is!"? This shit's just terrible.
>>
>>152010183
>using Latin randomly in a translation
>>
>>152010268
Because they did the same with Alisha. Gotta be fair.
>>
>>151998277
I like Edna, Meebo, Lailah, Sergei, and Sorey. That's all I need.
>>
>>152010210
It would have been fine if they at least balanced it. Instead they keep focusing heavily on one side character (first alisha, now rose) while putting aside everyone else.

S1 was weird in that they didnt make alisha the squire when they should have, instead leaving it to the very end, which resulted in a lot of alisha screentime where she only share dit with sorey, as she couldnt interact with the rest of the cast

>>152010322
Not only that but her screen time consisted of her doing nothing. It pointless for her to even have it, and because they were giving her so much attention they forgot to give any to their main character. So we barely know anything about him.

Making Alisha a squire was pointless, they adapt major events but not the things leading up to it. Resulting in the anime doing things without earning it's scene.

Agreed. I would have been fine with more Alisha screentime if it had been with her as asquire, sharing her screentime with the rest of the cast and Sorey.

So far i like what they're doing with this set up
They are trying to figure out what is malevolence and what counts as malevolence
In the game Sorey turned a blind eye to Rose and her assassinating people, imo that's seems like a malevolent action to just let someone else be murdered even if the murderer thinks its for the better
it also seemed out of place for Sorey with his goody goody personality so hopefully this gets brought up in the anime
I like how they are giving a bit more character to the side characters even if only a little but I don't like how they are still not giving character to the main characters
I know what Alisha and Rose alike, but that's only two out of the 8 or so main characters
I only wish for this season to improve all aspects of character development, the theme of the story, and the plot iself

Also 2nd op was lame and tame compared to the first one
I feel like the first season was more so a set up for whats to come in season 2
they should've swapped the openings and used the more pumped up one for the 2nd season
>>
>>152015226
You really need to stop projecting anon, the fact that you even took it seriously from the very sad, or started out as funny but now it's just pathetic.
>>
>>152015293
I'd say this is a good post, anon.

So far I think the weakest thing the anime has had is its lack fo focus on Sorey, to the point he doesn't even really feel like the MC. And while I do like them fleshing out side characters more I also hope they actually get into Sorey's story soon. Last season moved too slowly and I honestly don't think they can finish in this season at that same rate.

Though my biggest problem with Zestiria is Heldalf and I honestly don't think there's a way to fix him. He's just a completely boring villain.

>>152015293
They haven't talked about the concept of a person being completely immune to malevolence yet, which was just some huge bullshit in the game's story so I'm very much hoping for them to completely scrap that idea.
>>
>>152015508
As bad as what Konami did to Kojima.
>>
>>152015293
You're absolutely right, the game has a problem of not having Sorey speak out and instead made it so that Rose was right, when she wasn't. Doing so broke the internal morality of the game.

Ufotable's problem is that they don't realize a big rule of writing, side characters need to be treated like side characters. I feel like the ending is going to be both disappointing and rage inducing when people realize that the story wasted it's time on irrelevant shit.

What Heldalf needed was his history being put into the story instead of in those collectible flashback orbs.
>>
>>152015956
But not rage inducing or disappointing, just expected.
>>
>>152015764
I don't really have any expectations in the ending so I probably won't get mad no matter what happens. I don't even have enough emotional attachment to Zestiria for anything to make me mad, really. I'll be happy enough if he has dialogue with Maotelus at the end but if he doesn't, so be it.
>>
>>152016099
Maotelus is the kid from Berseria, right? They'll probably have something with Velvet at the end.
>>
>>152016188
I hope so since they put her in the opening again but it might just be shilling for the international release of her game.
>>
>>152015914
The game needed more time on Sorey, Mikleo, and Lailah, because they're the key to everything, and through them the game could have space to develop everything that needed development.

The manga did that but alas or was much too short, it was meant to be an adaptation not a complete retelling, so it ended once it ran out of things to adapt but honestly it needed to be longer. Do that it could have room to tell its story.

The anime's problem is the same as the game's but worse.
>>
>>152015962
In the manga it's Lailah who informs Sorey of the past, after Zaveid calls net out on it.
>>
>>151996183
haven't seen it but if it's anything like the game then it's full of cringy dialogue that goes no where and faggy main characters

It's the best thing to do. If fujoshits abandoned ship, you may was well try the other angles. Would be great to see a Sorey x Alisha/Rose/Edna/Lailah ending just to fuck with fujoshits in full.

But Bamco doesn't give a shit about them, in fact, Bamco's just ignoring Ufotable. Ufotable are the ones who produce their BDs, so their losses in that area will be taken by them, and Hetfags don't exist, so there's no customer base. They're not fucking over anyone except themselves by acting like idiots.

Fans of all variety exists.

The game actually makes it obvious Alisha nor Rose were love interests to Sorey through skits and (in Alisha's case) massive shafting and an entire cutscene of Sorey rejecting her.

Ufotable won't animate such things as to keep the status quo, and that's their downfall. They tried to pander to all instead of the majority that would pay them back, and those were the fujos.

Fans of all variety exists some are just much larger in number than others.

The head scripwriter literally said that neither girl would work with Sorey, though the in game also explains why either girl won't work with thim. Alisha would cause a political problem, and Sorey and her really don't have all that much in common despite their appearance. Sorey's interests are things that don't include Alisha. And Rose is just no. The game has both a scene and a skit of the Sorey rejecting Alisha with no hesitation and the characters reacting on how Sorey didn't care.

And that's exactly why their in the situation they're in. They saw how Bamco was ignoring Alisha and Rose, instead choosing to put Mikleo in the position of heroine, they should have taken note, they didn't, and now they're paying the price.

Wasn't that like right before he says he's going to freeze himself for hundreds/thousands of years? It makes sense for him to tell her to fuck off. He'd only get attached to her more and the same for her if he goes.

Only fujoshits take that as an actual rejection. Just like Meebo finding him at the end is, for some retarded reason, a win in their mind.

Sorey never had any feelings for her to begin with, if he did then he would have told her that he was going to sleep even when he got the chance too, and without a second thought too. Keep in mind that he also essentially asks Mikleo to wait for him too. After the Maltran plot Sorey was also reluctant to even hug her, and this was before he knew what he was going to do.

The scene is taken as a rejection, because it literally is in fact the skit right afterwards confirms it. Sorey rejected Alisha, the only way you'd think differently would be if you were delusional.
>>
>>152019766
>It makes sense for him to tell her to fuck off. He'd only get attached to her more and the same for her if he goes.
There's a skit directly after that of the cast making fun of how Sorey isn't interested in women. It was a indirect rejection, because if Sorey did have romantic interest in Alisha, he'd likely leap at the opportunity to be with her more. He doesn't.

The balcony scene happens afterwards, and Sorey specifically chooses not to tell her goodbye before he fucks off for a thousand of years. It wasn't about attachment at all, Sorey just didn't care to tell her goodbye.

>Just like Meebo finding him at the end is, for some retarded reason, a win in their mind.
Also wrong. Sorey found Mikleo, not the other way around. He woke up and specifically went out to find him.

The fact that the story could've ended in 9000 ways and yet it ended with Mikleo being the only person to reunite with Sorey is quite telling.
>>
>>152019766
Are you really going to reduce sorey to some cliche "i'm going to be harsh and lie to spare you future pain" stuff? Are you also going to pretend he ever showed romantic attraction to her? Are you going to do all that and more while calling fujos delusional?
>>
>>152019766
>Just like Meebo finding him at the end is, for some retarded reason, a win in their mind.
Sorey found Mikleo you dumbass, did you even play the game? Also it was the creators who confirmed that Sorey was going to spend the rest of eternity with Mikleo and intended to do so from the start.

I'll admit I came into the anime knowing that they'd tone down Sorey and Meebo's Excellent Adventures, having decided that a less fucked up plot would be worth less moments between them. They did fix the plot (mostly) but jesus christ it's like they didn't even realise the only people who had good things to say about the game were fujos.

Fixing Alishia and Rose's characters and dynamics were great. Shafting everyone else to do so was not. Now the Seraphs are basically color-coded walking power-ups while Sorey is a secondary character in his own goddamn show.

And where is my tickle scene? I wanted my tickle scene, Bamco. You have 11 more episodes to put it back in. Don't waste them sucking Rose's cock like the game did.

Sorey/Mikleo best and most canon just FYI

>>
>>152025079

They were pretty good in the last season. The only reason they bombed in ratings was due to the pants-on-head retarded decision to show Rose armatizing in the ED.

We'll probably get an episode or two since the game is finally coming out in the West on Jan. 24th/27th. If nothing else it might be a nice break if they decide to focus on Rose the same way they did Alisha in S1.
>>
Rose WILL be a squire this season. She WILL armatize. And the few people who still care about the game's characters will once again be butthurt beyond belief about it.

The anime has done a lot to repair my goodwill towards her. I really wanted to like her when she showed up in the game, after all. But if Ufotable glorifies her to the point that Sorey is made to be second fiddle again, and also play her up as "can do no wrong", then I hope they never turn a profit again. Having her be badass, cute, and good at business is cool. Having her be flawless and universally loved because she's perfect and always right is not.

So will this end this season? If not how many episodes do you guys expect?
The pacing and the changes really make me think this isnt finishing in the next 11 episodes

I don't recall a single FF protagonist who did mind murdering people, in fact. But then again, FF has never been as wholesome as most modern JRPGs tend to be.

Cecil's entire arc is about him realizing the terrible things he's done and his need to atone
