The game may not have sold as well as Sony would like, but that doesn't mean we aren't sitting here anticipating the anime adaptation. So, since the show's starting in April, it's about time for official promo art to start appearing...ah, yes, here it is! Check out these shots of Welkin, Alicia, and Faldio.

Great, I can't waiting for this. Since the game tell the story in a episodic way, I'm look forward to the adaptation and how much they can maintain the water paint style the game has.
BTW Valkyria Chronicles is a Sega IP, it was releases only on the PS3.
Now all I want to know if Aika and Vyse will show up in the anime.

Hehehe, I've known about this since they posted up these images on the show's site a few weeks ago or so..... I'm just pissed I was beat to posting them here since I was so busy playing the game...
I like how Alicia looks almost more moe, but I don't like what they did to Faldio. He looked like "the cool guy" in the game, but in this he looks like bishie trash... At least Welkin looks pretty much the same.

TO CREATING THE ARTICLES I GO!! TEEHEHheehehehe *maniacal laugh of joy*

You know, it would be even more awesome if Sony decided to do another one of those deals like they did with Xam'd and make it available on the Playstation Network with subs shortly after it airs over there... I think I'd actually pay to stream it for once if they did something cool like that.

Valkyria Chronicles was certainly one of my favorite games of 2008 (right behind MGS4.

That being said, I can't see this anime being anything more than "meh" at best. I'll still watch all of it in hopes that this series goes on to prove my prediction wrong.

I would love to play (and I would guess a lot of people too) but I just don't have the budget to buy a PS3.

@Lunarmoth: Do what I did, buy one to play it. (lol)

@hazelnutman: The reason I have a little higher expectations is because of the fact that the game had a very well done plot with a fair amount of action and drama that was laid out well. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint...

Pass.

That's only because I want my "first blush" of Valkyria Chronicles' story to be from playing the game. By the time I get to see the anime, [R1-Distributor-To-Be-Named-Later] will have already released a complete series set.

What can I say? I'm patient, if anything.
