How exactly can I put it? Tales of Symphonia was a great anime, the action and movements in each fight flowed very well, but I can’t help but think it was probably a better game. I only watched the OVA due to a recommendation from a friend. The show has a strong story line and follows Lloyd and Collete in their journey to “save the world.” They are joined by Genis, Raine, and the awesome Kratos. Basically, Collete is the Chosen one and must journey to become an angel once she becomes an angel the world will be regenerated. The only problem is that each step she takes to becoming an angel and saving the world takes her one step away from her humanity and her beloved Lloyd.
I was given the first three episodes and they were good enough to make me anticipate the final one. I was overjoyed when I saw that it was finally out, but after watching it I was thoroughly confused. Turns out you don’t really know what happens if you haven’t played the game. The show leaves you hanging in the end and you can’t help but think there will be another set of OVAs to follow this one up. I mean the show even says “End here Sylvarant” “Begin here Tethe’alla.” So I am just looking forward to a followup. Plus, I have to see what the new guys can do.
