So I do have to say, I quite liked the anime of “tales of Zestiria” at first (Keep in mind that I known the anime first, then manga,novel and lastly game) (and I might have been very clueless when watching episode 0 because “why the hell is she not seeing that…that thing…..” ).
So me being me, I decided to play the game because I heard
the anime is basically shit from dear old Tumblr
and because I love Mikleo too
much and damn it, the anime doesn’t give him enough screen time for me to stare,
all the while wondering “Why is he so pretty?”
So after the game (a good 70 hours mind you, totally worth it) , I can’t watch “Tales of zestiria the X” ever again. Because Alisha got too much screen time and SHE’S A FUCKING PRINCESS, DON’T SHE HAVE oh I don’t know….. DUTY TO THE DAMN KINGDOM AS A PRINCESS AND A KNIGHT???? WHY IS SHE GOING ON HER MERRY WAY WITH THE SHEPHERD???? So I get twitchy whenever I see Alisha …..And how come she got an upgrade to Heroine……She wasn’t even there for like…..¾ of the game, appearing here and there but nothing much…..that and Sorey might as well go blind (like Dezel….but the anime left that “little” detail out ) with her as his squire which again the anime left that out. The anime mainly revolves around Sorey and Alisha now that I think about it….
Also, Sorey doesn’t armatize with Mikleo enough. The game more ofter than not default you to armitize with Mikleo. When they have to kill Gramps is an example, it was even in a cut scene so you can’t chose another Seraph, and when the fight with Heldalf happened, the first Seraph you armitized with is Mikleo. And if the game don’t default you to armitize with Mikleo, I do it myself. Talking from personal experience when playing the game, I chose to armitize with Mikleo a lot, one of the few times that I didn’t was when
1. The game default you to another Seraph and I didn’t switch Seraph fast enough.
2. When you need a specific Seraph/element to fight the hellion.
3. When I was clueless on how to switch Seraph .
And that was it. I read a comment once that said that “Most players chose to armitize with Mikleo, more that any other Seraph”. This was true with me (I’m a sucker for the water armitization, one of my friend is too, she’s not even a ToZ fan but she loves Mikleo and the water armatization already) , I don’t know about you guys though.
Lastly, the fight with Heldalf, now I love to rant about this thing, believe me I did…so much that my friend went and play the game just to see why I was so angry with the fight. In the anime, Sorey armitized with all 4 seraphs at the same time but in the game, Sorey armitized with them one by one, then fight Heldalf a bit then play a game of “you have 20 seconds or so to cause as many damages as you can to Heldalf in order to trigger the with the opportunity to shoot Heldalf, fail and you get an instant game over” . So to say anime- Sorey got it easy. (fun fact, I constantly died when playing at the third opportunity, so I switch Seraph around a bit, I lost when I played with Edna, Lailah, Zavied and succeed with Mikleo…….I got nothing to say)
