Tales of Zestiria Episode 2: Sorey's imaginary friends


Well, we've finally gotten through all of the stuff that happened in the OVA. On to the real game! I still don't know what to think yet. Sure, there have been some pretty subtle differences in the events of the anime so far, like Mason's survival, but none of them really feel like they affect the story at all. I will say, though, that my biggest complaint of the episode is just how much Alisha pushes the idea that Sorey seems like he should be the Shepherd. I get that she thought it was him initially when they met, but it's still frustrating.

Side note: series still looks good (I mean that literally).

This is a weird response from Sorey. He should know who the Shepherd is, right? I'm pretty sure the Shepherd is supposed to be human, so this response doesn't make sense.

Wow that's an awkward typo. Still, the fact that Alisha can't see the Seraphim is a pretty important piece of information that gets repeated a lot.

This scene might actually be a nod to the game. In the game, the first quest you get while Alisha is in the village is killing boars to gather materials.

It's hard to be Alisha.

Sigh...this is just embarrassing, subtitle guys.

I know it seems like I'm not picking out a lot of scenes in this episode and it's because I've seen this introduction part of the story way too many times. I'm tired of it and I'm basically just skipping through it to see what's different from the game.

Well, if you haven't watched the prologue episode, it probably isn't too hard to guess this guy's alignment.

Wow...that was a pretty solid hit. Too bad it wasn't a water-element attack or it would've been a Power Hit, right?

Wait...Mason's getting healed? In the game, he just gets eaten. I guess this show is for kids.

This line makes no sense. Sorey says Lunarre's appearance wasn't because a human came to Elysia. His next line was that Lunarre was chasing Alisha, which pretty much confirms that Lunarre is only in Elysia because Alisha was there.

"Steal a march"? Never heard that one before...

    Took me about a minute to figure out what was actually being said in the one with the typo. I guess maybe if I'd played the game and knew she was unable to see the seraphim, I'd have maybe got it quicker. So I should play the game to prevent further trouble with the subtitles, right? :D

    I thought the line was meant to make a distinction between "humans in general" and "specifically this human" as the reason for Lunarre's appearance, but it wasn't very well written/translated if that was the case.
