Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 15: More betrayal everywhere

As usual, I'm conflicted about this episode. I really liked the fights in this episode, but I didn't really think the stuff with Alisha in the end were too interesting.

Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 14: The power of wind

Dang, I have to wait until the ending to hear the FLOW song in the second season? Anyway, this episode still feels like setup, but I guess it ended on something happening.

Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 13: So that's what a bishop does

Alright, we're back with the second season. For me in particular, this season is uncharted waters, so I guess this is the season without many game references.

Tales of Zestiria Final Episode (12): Not that bad for a game adaptation

Aww...no skit this week. That's a shame. Well, at least we didn't end on a cliffhanger, right?

Tales of Zestiria Episode 11: Final boss appears

Well, it looks like this arc is ending with the first battle against the Lord of Calamity...it's weird. The series has been so "different" to watch from a non-video game perspective that I almost didn't recognize it. Also, the announcement of a second season means there's probably no weird anime original ending. So, at this point, I'm going to say that we still really haven't deviated all too much from the game.

Tales of Zestiria Episode 10: Even more Alisha

Yeah, I'm still not sure how I'm supposed to handle the Alisha screen time. At this point in the game, Alisha had been relegated to "stay in Ladylake because you're not compatible with Sorey", so she's really doing well for herself. Her non-aggression idealism is...interesting. We'll see how it goes as we seem to approach a final battle of sorts.


Tales of Zestiria Episode 9: And even more dragons!

Tales of Zestiria Episode 9: And even more dragons!

Alright, we got the gang back together again. We're only missing one element now. This week's episode was pretty solid...kinda makes up some of the missing elements from the game. I really have no issue with skipping through Marlind straight to the drake fight. The only complaint I have so far is how they tiptoe around the Malevolence...if they're trying so hard not to explain it, there better be a shocking reveal about it.

Tales of Zestiria Episode 8: The power of dragons

This series has been strangely focused on dragons ever since the prologue. Given the fact that this series may end with just 12 episodes, I'm curious what ending they're building towards. Story-wise, it still feels like we're on track (just with different sequencing), but I just wonder whether we're going more for a "defeat the dragon" ending or the actual "defeat the Lord of Calamity" ending. And a random side question: wasn't Zaveid more nuts in the game?


Tales of Zestiria Episode 7: Praise the Shepherd

Tales of Zestiria Episode 7: Praise the Shepherd

Aaaaand we're back. I'm a bit salty that the big tornado that they left before the Berseria interruption ended up disappearing almost immediately. That being said, I will say that the way Mikleo is being handled in the anime is probably better than what happened in the game. Anyway, next week's episode is probably the introduction of everyone's favorite character, Edna, so prepare yourselves (I'm already braced).

Tales of Zestiria Episode 4: Well, that's different

This week's episode started out familiar, but ended up becoming very different.
