Busou Shinki - Moon Angel, Ep 3 Discussion

Postby OshareKeiji » Thu Dec 01, 2011 12:39 pm

Again, source is via PSN Japan Store.

Without giving away too much, I'm going to declare an earlier suspicion from the start that's finally confirmed in this episode:

It looks like the story of Moon Angel will be a re-imagining of Arnval Mk2's in-game event. After all, weird occurrences like memory loss and sudden berserker fits seem to have more dimension from a Shinki whose origins are unknown compared to a store-bought one with unchecked development bugs.

Darn it, now I can't wait for EP4.

Wow, just wow.......Awesome episode. That ending......To be continued! Now I need to get around to fully reviewing both episode 2 & 3 before ep 4 comes out.....

Spoiler time!
[spoilers]The owner of the Busou Shinki store - Ken - keeps making me think of the person I know haha. And Arnval, wow. Quite a happy one but and obeying Shinki, powerful at that too. Zelno appears to have allowed her Master's rude personality rub off on her, ah well. Love the insertion of the Battlemasters MK 2 music, effects, and stage - Ride On![/spoilers]

Awesome episode, and still bought through the Japanese PSN for those wondering :P.

Ride On!

Kaguya also said in one part that her weapons were custom-made by her master. So apparently, Tsubasa is a tuner as well. If ever his work was included in game, I wonder what his initials would be? +TB, +TS?

This is why you don't diss the meek-looking kids.

I blame the master.

Zelnogrard can shoot properly if she wasn't as smug as her owner.

Insulting. I'd blame the over-confident and stuck-up Master. A great Shinki does better with a great Master. Poor Zelno being stuck with a retarded Master :(.

I'm still amused how they used a Battlemaster stage, effects, and music to show how the battle went.

Well, they were using the Ride System, so that would be natural.

The animation fleshed out how the system works, though using VR goggles would be a moot point if the master's POV was still third-person like in the game.

And about Zelnograd : Given the absolute lack of ranged weaponry of Arnval, yeah, I'd say it's mostly due to a bad, baaaaaad Master.
