Tales of Symphonia OVA~
Okay, so I know the first part of this anime came out a long time ago. More than a year ago if I recall but anyways. The second arc is finally out and I can watch it. Subbed of course. The first arc was basically the events that happened in Sylvarant up until the Tower of Salvation and when Lloyd and gang cross over to Tethe'alla. Which is why this arc is called the Tethe'alla arc. It continues where the Sylvarant arc left off. The OVA basically rushes through the events that happened in the game. The major events and as such there are many differences. I mean they condensed the first part of the game which would take you at least a good 20 hours to get through in 4 episodes. I expect the second arc to be the same.
But it's not bad and there are some elements they added in that are really good. Like Lloyd's exsphere and that whole thing. I really like what they did with that. The fights and stuff are pretty good too. In essence, they really do follow the game but just change some stuff around due to having to condense everything. So, I'm looking forward to how things go in this arc since obviously the end of the game had some awesome events. Wondering how a certain fight will be portrayed in the anime. Anyways, will report on this when I get done watching the second arc~
Oh and needs more of Raine's ruin mode!
