  1. The problem with the series is the source material.
    Tales of Zestiria The Game is not good, so making the anime series interesting was a true challenge for ufotable.

  2. I have nothing to say about the last ep and cant agree with you more, I honestly feel the last ep feel rush, feel all over the place, and so on.

    Not to mention they made Sorey being OOC when he got angry over da guy because he attacked Alisha. Since in the game, not even killing certain someone makes him fall into that anger. I cant find a good reason for him to get mad over Alisha when she was not even dead and already recovered around that time.

    I…totally sure now that Ufo is making the game for fans. The character’s line even refer to the game. When Alisha made Squire contract with Sorey and she asked “Would I be the burden for your if I do this?”. Like….duh, you did not even mention the contract in the anime until now, what burden IS THAT? Only gamers know Alisha is refering to the time when she did the contract with Sorey in the game and made Sorey blind.

    And…they cut the most important part of Sorey’s development in the game when he facing Heldalf…I just…cant…Maybe they put it in later but…this ep feels so bland, I dont know???

    For your question, probably the Seraph was healing Alisha, since Mikleo and Edna can heal. But I dont think the anime actually made clear about that?

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the anime different from the game about Human’s purification?

      I mean, in the game, purifying a hellion human was the same as purifying a seraph while in the anime Sorey needs to take their malice/pain with him right? It could be that Anime!Sorey has higher chances of falling due to absorbing miasma.

      That or they wanted to make Sorey more “Human”(forgive the pun) than his Game counterpart by giving him more flaws? To show he isn’t above all?

      Well I’m glad I’m not the only who felt disappointed by the last couple of episodes. Tales of Zestiria the X began like a great adaptation but I don’t know what happened near the end… It’s like the directors decided to erase all progress to make the ending, the most confusing, generic and boring ending possible.

      Yeah, I too dislike Sorey going berserk because that dude threatens Alisha. After all the shit he went through losing his composure over this, seems a bit… not like Sorey? Also, I don’t like in anime when a guy goes yandere style to protect a grill ( the contrary works too). Alisha is perfectly able to defend herself and this part just felt unnecessary and I dare to say it, a bit cringy. But maybe it’s just because I absolutely hate those shoujo clichés and this part, felt like one.

      Like you, I think one of this anime biggest problem is that it doesn’t explain anything. And the way it does it is confusing… Since I know some stuff about the game I’m not even sure if the anime did mention those things.. Like Dezel name… I’m not sure the anime mentioned it… or the armatization concept, they didn’t explain it and it just appeared like that. Of course if they don’t mention things the people who did not play the game have no way to find out some information was missing at the time, but in the end, there must be things that they don’t understand, which is a shame.
      Considering Toz is one of the least liked Tales of Game, ufotable should have tried to make this anime, an anime watchable by everyone, to maybe give the envy to some people to buy the game. Don’t make this a “game fans only” kind of anime since there’s only a few people that are fan of the game… I don’t know if I’m being very clear here.

      And nope, the anime did not make Alisha’s recovery clear. To me it just looked like she healed all alone, magically. I, personally, did not understand how she healed… maybe it’s because I’m dumb, or because I was really bored, but I couldn’t understand how she healed.
