Tales of the Abyss #21 — Family Affairs

February 20th, 2009

 

Sweet… absolutely bloody nothing happens.

Impressions:

Surprisingly, a rather dull and exposition heavy episode centered mostly around Asch given how much of the game they’ve got left to cover in the remaining 5 episodes. They went ahead and shifted forward the confirmation that Largo is Natalia’s father for even the slowest members of the crowd, although Natalia’s still unaware of it so I can’t wait for even more of that. This episode also wasn’t helped by repeatedly skipping events just so they could flash back 15 seconds later. Why would you even do that?

Otherwise, nothing really important. Eldrant and the whole replica thing is making the miasma go crazy, Asch is especially affected by it, and now everybody’s off to the Tower of Rem to chill with the crazy replicas. That’s seriously it. No action, no deaths, and only one Ion running around. Luke has regained his martyr complex, so we’re going to be back to him attempting to kill himself to atone to the world for the rest of the show. Maybe in the adaptation, they’ll let him succeed.

At least the preview for next week was almost all action. I can still keep the vain hope alive that they’ve been punting on all the action scenes through the middle to save up for some awesome action at the end. Also, I’ve decided to believe in UFOs and have purchased some swampland in Florida that I’ve been guaranteed will turn a profit.

Preview:

Rumble in Rem.

    It’ll be reaaaaaaaally interesting if they pull this off.

    I wonder if they plan to exclude Florian or not. He was really just a sidequest tool anyway. D:
