Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Episode 4


It’s interesting that Tales of Zestiria is devoting so much time to Rose over the last few episodes. Mostly because of all the characters we’ve met and followed along, Rose is one of the few who is actually reasonably complex. She isn’t good for the sake of being a good guy, nor is she selfish and out for herself. Rose has a strict moral code it just doesn’t fit with Sorey’s view of the world. To be perfectly honest, I was kind of happy when Dezel slammed Sorey against a wall. While I’m not actually a big fan of murder for justice, Sorey’s view of the world has always been obnoxiously optimistic and Rose’s story is nicely countering some of the sickly sweetness of that view. It will be interesting to see the fall out from the events this week in the next episode.

Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 8


And then we got another dragon fight? Okay, we introduced some new characters and realised that Sorey is completely idealistic and they set up some new dark thing for our characters to confront next week but mostly this episode has us watching a dragon fly around and various characters discussing whether it should (or can) be killed, purified or left alone. Visually this dragon fight was actually better than the previous one, though it was probably aided a great deal by the fog that permeated every scene where the dragon was flying. It was a fun enough episode but it didn’t really move the story along any further so we’ll see what next week brings. I do get the feeling I’m going to like Edna.
