So yeah, number 4, Valkyria Chronicles !

Quick review.

The backstory : war for ownership of a crucial resource ; the story starts in Bruhl, country of Gallia, a small town threatened by the Imperial Army.

The main characters so far : Alicia, former baker, brave member of Bruhl’s town watch ; Welkin, son of a great general, likes to study trouts ; Isara, his adopted sister, drives and repairs tanks.

It’s half funny half serious, it’s off to a great start, and it’s making me think about cosplay (Alicia is, anyway). The ED is ridiculous, but the kind of ridiculous I love. I’ll go for episodic blogging after episode 3.

Oh, and since I never played the videogame, I won’t be making comparisons, sorry if it’s what you’re looking for. But I might want to now.

    That is a great shot of Isara.

    The anime turned out to be high quality. Well art directed with nicely done vehicles and characters. Less good were the characterizations; many seemed too stereotypical.

    Here is our take on it with lots of pics and a few bits if wit if you are interested:
