What did you guys think of Arthur as a villain? He was pretty compelling as an antagonist.

Gavin Nelson
Gavin Nelson

His story was interesting but he was too much of an emotionless husk all the way through the game until the end.

Jonathan Allen
Jonathan Allen

Will they rush the Dezel plotline this episode or will it carry over to next season?

Anthony Brown
Anthony Brown

Surely not. They won't even have one whole episode for it since half of it would be Sorey and Heldalf.

Juan Perry

About one more hour until kittybread

Levi Cook

real questions here. why is alisha, objectively the most developed character in the anime, is so boring

John Bell

I saw where he was coming from but it was very satisfying to see just how BTFO he was

Juan Miller

dunno ESLkun lol

Austin Carter

because the paladin character archetype is very boring.

Jose Jones

Im guessing this episode will mostly be Kitty king brow beating sorey and rose and alisha saving him from that and vanishing into the forest, setting up camp in the ruins and adopting rose as the squire

Ryder Brooks
Ryder Brooks

Real question here. Why do you visit an English dominated site despite the fact that you cant speak the language well enough to not fragment sentences with poor grammar and punctuation?

Evan Thomas
Evan Thomas

He is literally Van 2.0. Not that it's a bad thing, I think he was handled well during the course of the story.

Cooper Lewis

Benjamin Scott
Benjamin Scott

I liked how he was a typical FOR DA GREATER GOOD villain, but none of the party felt bad for him or tried to convince him to stop.

Just an annoying asshole they had to put down

Kayden Miller
Kayden Miller

That was the point. Velvet embraces emotion while he rid himself of it.

Brandon Brown
Brandon Brown

Not enough time, probably they'll just have Rose & Alisha escape to the hideout with Sorey got beaten and knocked out, then episode ended with Sorey wake up somewhere and the story route begin to split with Alisha+Rose and Sorey+Seraphim for the next season.

That was literally just a promo for Berseria that was launching in Japan at that point.

Although the fact that it was able to get you invested a lot faster than Zestiria should tell you something about the respective stories of both games.

Nathaniel Rodriguez

Who doesn't?

Bentley Adams
Bentley Adams

I never thought Sorey would be so mad about this. It makes me think if they will push the pairing even though the writer and Sorey's seiyuu said it's not romantic love.

Samuel Price
Samuel Price

Yeah it really seems like it, what with the middle of this episode and the romantic music.

Ryan Miller
Ryan Miller

So far anime Rose isn't like game Rose, game Rose was afraid of seraphim, but anime Rose is aware of their existence. She's also much more aware of the fact that the whole war is shit and seems to be more open to idea that she is wrong than game Rose ever was. Also Sorey isn't aware that she is an assassin, and he is capable of purifying human hellions which without hesitation, so that also eliminates Lailah's constant comparing of the two, as anime Lailah would rather avoid human hellions.

So basically a lot of Rose's more story breaking traits negative effect on the narrative were either eliminated, toned down, or on the verge of being torn down.

Altogether very different from the game, as game Rose even by this time was held on a pedestal while anime Rose is not to the point where I can't even call anime Rose Baba's Rose.

Leo Clark
Leo Clark

Ufo just pushes every ship.
Four episodes ago they were smearing on thick with Mikleo, the two episodes before this it was Rose and Alisha and now it's Sorey and Alisha.

Bentley Bennett
Bentley Bennett

I'm fine with that ship, but that wasn't pushing it. It's normal to be mad in that situation.

Alexander White

Anime Sorey cares more about Alisha than even Mikleo. Poor Meebo.

Goddammit, Lailah, turn down the oven please.

Benjamin Russell

Mikleo is the only who lost here. Sorey isn't a closed homosexual in this adaptation.

Zachary Gray
Zachary Gray

It's more like they allowed Sorey to have human reactions. He's allowed to show be worried about people, show anger, be sad and the story doesn't admonish him for it.

Xavier Hughes

Nathaniel Myers

Who here was actually afraid they'd kill Alisha off with all the heavy bleeding this episode?

James Davis

Just because Mikleo was the one who saw him came back doesn't mean that Sorey is homo for Mikleo.

Lucas Phillips
Lucas Phillips

in order to compete with Alisha, Mikleo acquires a pair of tits and grows out long hair with a side-tail.

Chase Phillips
Chase Phillips

Just because Sorey and Mikleo promise to return to continue their adventure and the creators that they'll essentially be together forever doesn't mean that Sorey willingly wanted to spend the rest of his life with Mikleo,
kek

Adam Collins

By then Alisha has been dead for over 100 years and Sorey might have forgotten about her.

Luke Sanchez
Luke Sanchez

QUESTION!!
did sorey make the pact with alisha in the game before they seperated? never play the game before.

Jeremiah Wood
Jeremiah Wood

they made the pact way before this and broke it in Marlind because Alisha sucked so bad she made him go half-blind.

Caleb Miller
Caleb Miller

Well, if they go that way the shippers better prepare because Alisha will die while Sorey will be sleeping for centuries. It will be bittersweet though and Nips might like it although the pairing is non-existant in Japan.

I see. The only time I remember seeing him like this was in the manga with Mikleo before he made a contract with Lailah. I was just surprised to see so much anger over this.

Jaxon Ramirez
Jaxon Ramirez

he is though, they are bestest of bros, he thinks mikleo is beautiful, and mikleo is one of the most important feelings/memory so he comes back to him in the end (if he turns into seraph). he's at least a little homo for his bestie.

Jacob Long
Jacob Long

Why couldn't she be a seraphim after death?

Benjamin Perez
Benjamin Perez

That'd be just bitter as hell because everyone in the party would remember her but she wouldn't remember anything about Sorey and the others.

For a moment I thought she was going to die and turn into a seraphim.

Julian Young

It wasn't the healing, it was everything that happened after that.
Those sparkling eyes of them looking at each other is hard to overlook.

Jason Morris
Jason Morris

Not in the anime. Whenever Mikleo catches him/makes sure he's okay, he always runs off, leaving Mikleo calling out for him playing catch up from behind. He doesn't seem to give a single shit about Mikleo and from the way the episodes were written, seems like Sorey is a lot more concerned about Alisha than Mikleo.

Case in point when the dragon was about to reach Lady Lake he was shouting frantically for her, also before that he attacked Lunarre for going after Alisha. Sorey was really relieved to be reunited with her (water armatization episode) while with Mikleo it was a simple cool bro!. Now this. Ufo really places a lot more importance into Sorey & Alisha this time.

Julian Davis

That's just the desperate shippers.

Ok, point taken. I have only seen some manga chapters so I didn't know he had so many reactions towards both Alisha and Rose.

Now I want, with the squire thing happening will he lose his eyesight or not?

Jacob Nguyen

this

Jack Phillips
Jack Phillips

Because Sorey on the stopping the war and fighting the hellions, it's not like Mikleo's life was in danger either.

Also it's normal to be worried about someone when you know that they're in danger, don't be autistic user.

Kevin Martin
Kevin Martin

To be fair, if I didn't already know about the game, I would totally call the next scene shipping.

Just wait until the end of the anime when Sorey friendzone everyone and comes back to Meebo.

Adrian Young

No

Levi Jackson

why does it always happen with straights. I bet everything I have that if alisha and mikleo were swapped, everyone would be like "it's only normal to care so much about your friend!!"
lol

Christian Fisher
Christian Fisher

"It's looks like alisha-sama became the main heroine"

Adam Nguyen
Adam Nguyen

My point is that the writers are the ones who create the situation and how the characters react to them. In the manga for example, it really highlighted how important Mikleo was. Sorey became a shepherd because he was hurt, then he was against Mikleo becoming a sublord because he didn't want him to get involved in this mess. It showed that both Sorey and Mikleo care for each other equally, at least. Whereas in the anime Mikleo reacts to Sorey but Sorey doesn't react to Mikleo, or better phrased: Mikleo is put so much in the background that there's no way the viewers know if Sorey cares or not about him.

Elijah Edwards
Elijah Edwards

Game Sorey isn't allowed to care anyone or anything, adaptation Sorey's however are allowed to give a shit, so in the adaptations Sorey worries about his friends, about the situation, the cardinal's death in the manga for instance really hit him hard. This is why his reaction to Alisha isn't really OOC or indicative of anything really, it's just how Sorey was supposed to be.

Adam Allen
Adam Allen

Because normal people are straight

Tyler Evans

Matthew Reyes
Matthew Reyes

Thank you for providing info about this user. It's because I didn't see game reaction and as I said I haven't read many manga chapters so I did not know Sorey reacts so much and shows a lot on his face.

I am glad they changed this in the manga and anime versions. It makes him more interesting as a character as well.

William Garcia
William Garcia

yeah this is pretty disappointing to me so far. i like Alisha and think the anime is definitely better than the game but... meh, after episode 7 it's been a disappointment on the Meebo front.

Dylan Diaz
Dylan Diaz

lmao you are the least normal person I assure you, go hide your ugly ass somewhere

Brayden Sanders
Brayden Sanders

I wasn't talking about me, retard.

Aiden Turner
Aiden Turner

I also feel like Sorey seems to take Mikleo for granted in the anime (which is a little bit heartbreaking considering how much he has done for him)

Brandon Adams
Brandon Adams

And they did the same in the anime, with episode 6, and even beforehand when he constantly shows worry for Mikleo whenever he shows himself to be effected by malevolence.

In the manga Sorey didn't become a shepherd because Mikleo was hurt, he used kamui because Mikleo was hurt, so that one correction. In the anime they pretty much hint that his entire reason for becoming a shepherd was because of Mikleo, they avoid the fight between them by having Mikleo go behind Sorey's back and get the bow. Conversely Sorey's immediate reaction to chase after him before cooling down, literally, and realizing that Mikleo wanted to do it for a reason shows more understanding on both their ends.

Levi Rogers
Levi Rogers

I think this happened because they want to pander to the Alishafags who, as we know, got the most mad during the game story. Giving her more focus and story relevance, especially towards Sorey, would make her fans happy but on the other hand the rest of the characters, even Mikleo got side-lined.

Colton Stewart
Colton Stewart

Poor Mikleo, he's so loyal to his husbando but he got abandoned in the anime

Lincoln Campbell
Lincoln Campbell

In the game Sorey barely reacts to anything and whenever he is, he's immediately admonished for it. Which is why I think that so many people who played the game are shocked to see Sorey show anything but a happy expression.

Easton White

Dominic Ortiz

Asher Hill
Asher Hill

I don't see a problem on them having Sorey focus on other characters beside Mikleo for a while. It makes Sorey more human compared to how he was in the game which tends to make him distant from human beings. Sorey in the game is nothing more then a slave to Lailah wishes.

Adam Clark
Adam Clark

yeah me too. that's why I wanted to see the fight between them and sorey's loss of resonance

Dominic Rivera
Dominic Rivera

nah this place can use a bit of normal people

Luis Lee
Luis Lee

This, Anime Sorey is always quick to run to Mikleo anytime he's hurt. To say that he's taking him for granted, it pretty fucking stupid.

So what if anime Sorey shows worry to other characters who are in clear and present danger, it's a human reaction.

Nicholas Harris
Nicholas Harris

Ahhh thanks. I thought it would be the one from Zesteria?

Aiden Wright

Jonathan Baker
Jonathan Baker

yeah, i still like Alisha but it kind of sucks if you like any other character more than her. except Rose, i guess.

basically, if your favorite character is a seraphim you're kind of fucked.

Juan Carter

They really are unfucking a lot of things for this anime.

Joshua Barnes

Alexander Torres

Alexander Hernandez
Alexander Hernandez

Maybe the loss of Sorey's tendency to be overprotective towards Mikleo gives people that illusions.
While it makes Sorey admit that he really can't do anything without Mikleo, it also erases the part of Sorey which still feels guilty for dragging Mikleo into all this mess. Especially when in the anime they show Mikleo has gone through some serious shits to retrieve the bow

Chase Peterson
Chase Peterson

The seraphim weren't that relevant in the game either.
The only one who got a semblance of his own story was Dezel.

Dylan Martinez
Dylan Martinez

I used to hate her as a rape victim princess. But somehow I would follow her into battle now.

Austin Robinson
Austin Robinson

dropped it after Velvet was gone, it is worth picking up again?'

Liam James
Liam James

I think it shows that Sorey is more understanding of Mikleo and more faith that Mikleo can without a shadow of a doubt handle himself. He doesn't need Mikleo to remind him of his own goals he hasn't forgotten them.

Colton Gonzalez

That's a lot of blood.

Ryan Ward

That's because everything got cut because of the last minute changes. Edna's story got relegated to an optional side quest and Lailah's history is only in the manga. Dezel's got messed up from Rose and you learn much more about Zaveid in Berseria.

I wish they went through with her death, it would've been fitting. Instead, she magically heals, becomes a squire out of nowhere and ends up leaving anyway. What the fuck.

So she can armatize next season.

Benjamin Butler

Anime has been so much better than the game. Can't wait to see what they do with the next season.

Gavin Cruz
Gavin Cruz

So she won't be caught by surprise by hellions in Marlind. I wonder if Lunarre will still follow her now that she is going to do boring paper work.

Cooper Smith
Cooper Smith

It's not Sorey having interactions with other characters, the problem. I don't think there is a problem to begin with but I can see why some people differ in this.

The whole scene screamed "ship them" because of how worried Sorey was, the way the camera changed to Alisha and the angles it gave to her (pointing how Sorey is looking at her), the full moon view, the way they made the squire contract etc.

As another user said, if I did not know about the game/novel/anime ending and the story in general before watching the anime, I would think they are trying to make Sorey/Alisha happen.

Watching the scene with subs didn't scream anything romantic to me but I know it did to others. This means some people saw this as a hint or potential for romance between them even though neither of the two have hinted they like each other that way.

Justin Morgan
Justin Morgan

Next season Sorey leaves for a different country and by the time they meet again, he's going to go to sleep and when he wakes up she'll be dead and he probably won't care.

Lincoln Bailey
Lincoln Bailey

Mikleo who?

Landon Garcia
Landon Garcia

Alisha 1/8 figure rerelease when?

Carson White
Carson White

Sorey actually made her a squire so they both could enjoy Mikleo face of despair when they fuck in front of him.

Jackson Flores
Jackson Flores

So

which version is supposed to be canon now

Zachary Perez
Zachary Perez

Don't know about you but staring into each others eyes for a minute while Alisha is monologue-ing about how happy she is she met him and recounting her memories of him seems pretty damn romantic to me.
Just saying that the shipperfaggotry isn't coming out of nowhere. They probably aren't going to change the ending anyway so I don't really care.
I ship her with Rose anyway, they can stick together when Sorey goes to sleep

Leo Cruz
Leo Cruz

I don't really get it. How was Alisha healed exactly? Super magical Sorey purity shepherd powers?

Jacob Jackson
Jacob Jackson

i don't see how they could change the ending to be Sorey/Alisha. if they keep the same ending it's going to be pretty painful for anyone who ships it. feel kind of bad for them.

I would have much preferred it if Sorey had to make the squire pact with her in order to save her life. But since they are making it more of a voluntary action, it seems weird that Alisha takes off right afterwards. Her being separated from the party is pretty necessary for the plot to hold together for act 2, but as far as character motivations go, its strange that Alisha would be like "cool I can see Lailah and co now and we can get properly acquainted, but I'm just going to leave now instead"

Camden Mitchell
Camden Mitchell

I don't know either but the anime has changed some pretty important character and story elements so if they do make the pairing happen it will be bittersweet with Alisha dying as Sorey sleeps for centuries in order to purify the land.

Nips like tragic stuff for once and we know Nip fujos don't really care about straight canon romance like the landwhales here do. Even the pairing is very small in Nipland but who knows after this episode.

Like this user said a lot of people can see it as romantic. No big deal about it, people are going to ship. But just because you don't see it, it doesn't mean others don't.

For example, I like Sorey/Mikleo so if Mikleo was in Alisha's case and this entire scene happened, I would accept it as a romantic hint.

Jayden Sanders
Jayden Sanders

Seemed more like they were recounting the journey because they knew that she was going to leave, and this is just setting up that. They make the squire pact so that she's no longer vulnerable to hellions.

The whole thing is just Bleach 2.0. and Sorey x Alishafags are IchigoxRukiafags 2.0. Two characters aren't romantically linked but shipperfags go full delusion and think that they are.

They were fucking warned, by everyone

Nah, as a fujoshi, I think a little bit shippy is fine. After all Alisha is popular and it's not like they're going to change the ending anyway. And from all the official arts and subtle hints I can say that ufo still pushes SoreyxMikleo a lot.
Still I do hope they'll animate the epilogue.

William Perez
William Perez

They are trying to make the Zestiria anime an enjoyable experience for everyone including the VAs that weren't happy about the developments that happen in the game and not just focus on the fujo parts about the game which is reasonable.

Jonathan Sanders
Jonathan Sanders

It was dusk when Rose got to Sorey and it was close to dawn when she woke up. He probably healed her with Seraphim powers during that time.

James Hill

Healing spells. Almost all the party is present (the only one missing is Zaveid), so someone needs to have healing spells. I mean, what kind of RPG doesn't give you a healer for your party?

The whole thing is just Bleach 2.0. and Sorey x Alishafags are IchigoxRukiafags 2.0. Two characters aren't romantically linked but shipperfags go full delusion and think that they are.

It's basically this, really. Also I don't ship Sorey with anyone. Some people seem to believe that you are a fujo if you somehow don't see romance everywhere in the anime.

Landon Reed

What part of "waifuafags are vocal" you didn't get?

Justin Collins

i THINK maybe this scene was entirely from Alisha's point of view, because you don't see the seraphim at all. it looks like Sorey and Alisha are alone, but after the pact, Alisha looks and the seraphim are standing right there. i think maybe they healed her and we just didn't see it because she couldn't see it, and the scene was supposed to be through her eyes.

Anime-onlyfag, but the impression I got was that the trust between Sorey and Mikleo is so strong that Sorey doesn't feel like he has to worry about him as much. Mikleo overtly worrying about Sorey while doesn't overtly worry about Mikleo doesn't mean he cares less, in my eyes.

Sorey or more likely Mikleo was healing her. There was a glow on the cliff where they were.

Jaxon Rogers

I think that this was supposed to be her farewell, which is why Sergei was introduced as seeing something off about the fallen soldiers. Manga was a similar affair lots of Alisha shilling and then she leaves, only seen again when Sorey says goodbye to all the humans he's met. This also could be a set up for an OAD.

Her squire's pact is lost when Sorey goes to sleep and she demands that Rose tell her what happened to Sorey.

Owen Phillips

Sorey mentions in the game (but not the anime, i think) that the Rountabel Palace in Ladylake is actually a pretty big source of malevolence. Sorey can't do shit about it in the game because he's not allowed inside, but if Alisha has the power of purification now she can straighten that shit out instead of beating her head against the brick wall of bureaucracy.

Let's hear everyone's thoughts

I thought it was it was a decent anime
The beginning was pretty excited and was interesting enough for me to continue watching
However the hype train dies around episode 5 with the two promotional episodes for Berseria
Edna's episode is the only episode other than the final episode that actually was exciting and thrilling to watch, everything else was kinda boring as it didn't feel as though anything was happening
Only half the episodes were actually interesting to watch

Hopefully the next season will really change things around with more fights and a lot less talking and explaining things

Chase Cox
Chase Cox

I think it'll be different this time because Maltran really looked like she cared about Alisha this episode.

Mason Anderson

Leo Brooks

None of Alisha's goals had been accomplished by her. You can't be a Mary Sue if you don't do everything. So far Alisha only accomplishment is making Rose her bitch.

Julian Wright

I think it's being overhyped because they're making basic, common sense improvements to the game. It's still a fairly bland and generic fantasy/shounen anime with poor CGI.

Adam Foster

They've cut off so many points of conflict from the game that everything feels so bland now.

Blake Martin

Eli Baker

Ryder Young

Why wouldn't she? Despite being a hellion, Alisha was her protege and Matran did pretty much serve as her surrogate parent after her mother died.

Tyler Howard
Tyler Howard

Wait until the ss2 end. The manga actually pandered Alisha at first. Then at the end it went full Mikleo.

Jace Hernandez
Jace Hernandez

Manga panders to Alisha too, just like this episode it's right before she leaves. Just like the anime there is build up for Sorey and Mikleo kamui, though unlike the anime actually spends more time on it. Also in the game Alisha is the only one whose actually worried about Alisha, and Uno at Rose's funeral implies that he's Rose's water seraph not Mikleo.

So even in the game it is likely that Mikleo fucks off of the party and stays in Ladylake with Alisha, and their closeness in the manga kinda justifies it.

Grayson Gomez

Seems like he was talking about growing up with Mikleo and his dream.

Austin Fisher
Austin Fisher

Maybe in the epilogue Mikleo leaves his home, and Sorey is waiting for him outside, while the two of them flashback to when they were kids and the final dialogue has them say that they will be together forever.

Pretty much, hilariously enough the manga did have a scene where Sorey was sorry to see Alisha go (and unlike the anime she didn't have to be in constant danger for Sorey to worry about her). But it lead to nowhere.

Xavier Foster
Xavier Foster

It's kind of cliched and not very well put together, but it's straightforward enough where I can mostly understand what's happening.

I think the weakest aspect is Sorey. His side of the story doesn't have a clear direction and none of the seraphim feel fleshed out. Alisha's story has more characters doing things, more struggles, more conflicts, and more of an arc. Sorey is just kind of in the same direction swinging his glowstick at things. Sometimes it's a demon in the field, sometimes it's in a town, but always a demon and always a glowstick. When he got mad at the general, I was like oh, he really cared for Alisha that much? Is this supposed to be like a turning point for his character? And then nothing comes out of it.

From what I gather the game was just a colossal shitshow all around so the anime only needed to be better, which it seems to be. But the anime is pretty cliched. Not bad, but not terribly flavorful.

Alisha's cute, I would've preferred a full Berseria anime.

Austin Wood
Austin Wood

I believe that the anime intended to frame it in the same way that it did with Mikleo's absence. Sorey doesn't like it, but understands why it must be done. Granted, I could be overthinking it a bit.

I was hoping they wouldn't introduce the squire thing, it feels like a gameplay contrivance that didn't need to be part of the story.

Compared to that Zestiria is just empty

Ryder King
Ryder King

Judging by one of the extra skits for the BluRay and Sorey's first reaction to Mikleo being gone, that's probably it.

Gavin James

The Seraphim not being fleshed out wasn't one of the game's flaws though.

Dylan Ward
Dylan Ward

I'm just pointing out the facts. I don't actually care for Sorey with any of the girls, but compared to the game, his relationship with Mikleo has been shafted. They took out alot of their significant scenes for filler talking between Sorey and Alisha.

Anime Mikleo spends episodes thinking about Sorey, but Sorey is somewhere holding hands with some girl. What a cuck.

Xavier Price
Xavier Price

It was user, why is it that you needed a guidebook and a manga to flesh them out.

Owen Taylor
Owen Taylor

I feel Berseria will worked more as an anime since there is actually a sense of direction and purpose for the characters then Zestiria. But it's too soon for them to promote a game that is just coming out into a full-fledged anime and Zestiria was most likely already planned as soon as the game was sent out as the 20th anniversary of Tales.

I wouldn't be surprise the cross stuff was added in later due to the backlash of the game since it's very obvious they are doing everything in their power to make it not be too similar to the game.

i wonder if they're still going to split the focus to show what she's doing in s2. i liked it so far and used to think it was a good idea, but that was when i thought Rose would be sticking with her. if it's just Alisha, alone in Hyland with her redshirts, i'm not really interested.

Considering the next season is where Sorey's journey really starts, and they've started the idea of him being burdened by the malevolence he takes in. The second season will be much bigger than the first.

Benjamin Russell
Benjamin Russell

This Even if it's better than the game, the anime isn't any more enjoyable in my opinion. The fact that they also took out interesting portions that I did like really turns me off too.

Anime salvaged Zestiria so far, but it can and will not ever save it. Second cour will show this even more.

Ayden Baker
Ayden Baker

That varies. Most of the introduced humans turned seraphs actually do remember their past lives in the games. Velvet's sister and her brother both remember. The two previous shepherds in the game both remember. The only one who doesn't remember is Mikleo, but he was just a baby when he died.

The anime is taking cues from the significally superior manga, not the game. In the manga, the Rolance section was pretty good, and rife with character development for Sorey, Mikleo, Dezel, and Lailah.

And because of the constant hints by the anime, we might get Sorey getting backlash from purifying humans.

Because same sex relationships are neither as harmonious, or endearing as straight relationships. It's always about sex, drama and emotional dependency with those. The two do not compliment each other, but oppose each other and create tension, often sexual.

If you want a new Zestiria, hope for a Zestiria R after the anime ends. That will be the only version of canon that can overwrite the shit former game.

All he needs is ten minutes. P0nos in vagoo. Shake shake shake. And then he goes to sleep.

Why couldn't we have gotten an anime to change around stuff in Graces. Boring plot aside I enjoyed the characters more than Zestiria's cardboard support for mikleo and Surrey

We don't know what he is, but we know that he won't be sticking his dick in a vagoo unless Mikleo is hiding one under his clothes.

Just remember the game made me realize there was too many unnecessary stuff in there. You can even cut out things and it changes nothing. The Edna story bit was also turned to a side quest, making it optional to do it. Makes me wonder why she was still around forgetting about the problem with her brother if you chose to skip it.

Sorey is a human. He survived the disaster 20 years ago even though his mother died before he was born. Zenrus extracted the unborn Sorey from her corpse and kept him alive.

Carter Baker
Carter Baker

Bisexuality, yes. Strict homonormative relationships, no. In the end organisms need to procreate. The greeks knew this. They accepted homosexual flings as a part of growing up, or people fooling around.
Profound romantic love between two of the same gender however was looked down on. Homosexuality is an aberration. Bisexuality is obscene, but not a denial of nature like homosexuality is.

that and Mikleo drinking the fake elixir. shame we won't be getting the scene where Rose thinks the seraphim are ghosts, since she's already talking to Dezel.

Landon Perry

But the Greeks were also wrong, like you yourself said strict heteronormativity is unnatural. Heterosexual relationships are just for the purpose of procreation, however once that is done the child can survive in its own and a lot of times even before then animals will fuck off and go about their business. So in reality even heterosexuality for pticreation is not meant to last.

Xavier Brooks

It is not explained well in the game, her entire character was very shallow. I think there was a bit of backstory relating to that at the end but I don't even remember.

No, I said strict homonormative is unnatural. Any sexual orientation that makes procreation impossible is deviancy and the work of a defective mind. As a living being you are meant to leave a genetic legacy. Refusal to do so is highly alarming behavior which has become all too common in these days.

But thinking in and of itself is false, because again bisexuality itself is the natural order of things. We are meant to establish a genetic legacy yes (though it's not really that simple), but once that's done, you can fuck off and do whatever you want as far as nature is concerned.
