The battlefront moves to Kolden and its forest, where General Dumbass loses all his men. Good thing he was too proud to take the mighty Squad 7 with him… But they will be going there soon enough.

Meanwhile, Welkin and his soldiers dally around doing laundry and cleaning for lack of mission. Alicia struggles with her image of Welkin who doesn’t want to fit in her neat little frame. The guy is a weirdo, but a reliable weirdo, you just have to get over it. That’s what his college pal Faldio teaches the girl, among other things…

Alicia is doing pretty good, I hope they keep up the character development. I hope we get to know the rest of Squad 7 too, they’re growing on me.

    LOL the first capture!! The design looks nice, but do you think I would like it? I am much less into battle/machine anime than you are…

    Oh, I think you can try, there’s not that much emphasis on machines. Basically, for now it’s just tanks. No supergiant mecha with laserbeam. Old school warfare.
    It’s a nice show with the usual clichés and likeable characters, not the best of the season, but still highly enjoyable.
