On a recon mission, Alicia and Welkin take shelter from a snowstorm in an abandoned hut. They chat, they have a nice time, Alicia even puts the moves on Welkin only to be defeated by his shyness.

But something is coming…
They find a status quo (I have a grenade, you have a rifle, let’s just threaten each other nicely) but the tables are turned when they realize the guy is wounded. Alicia manages to help him, but his end is near anyway, so he decides to tell them his story.

He was just a farmer’s son who thought the military might help him find his place in the world, only to be sent as cannon fodder as soon as war started.

Je ne veux pas la faire
Je ne suis pas sur terre
Pour tuer des pauvres gens

C’est pas pour vous fâcher
Il faut que je vous dise
Ma décision est prise
Je m’en vais déserter

Boris Vian, Le Déserteur


You came to the right people to die, M. Weber.

    That sounds like a good episode. I didn’t think that anime would address serious issues.

    Valkyria does exceed my expectations, I like that.
    Yes, it’s probably the best episode so far.
