    I was hoping for something like this, since he was the player character, then make him chill out and do some missions with other comrades, it's not like we are always soloing with Afin as a partner, right? right???.... but then they killed Sue, Rupika and Toaster in chapter one...

    Actually if I remember right she wasn't in the Camp Ship to begin with, only among the people listening to the speech.Guess she was part of another team.

    She was provably on the blind spot on the rest of the scenes, most of them during the travel are either seen just before landing or after that, but none of the shots show the full squad.

    I think the very first birds eye view in the ship showed everyone on the ship. At least it matched with the ones on the ground later. I rewatch later once I'm home to be sure but I noticed right away several people we saw at the speech weren't among them (There where a lot more). Now that I think about it they didn't have a single Tech user with them at all.

    :EDIT: Watched it again and it seems you're right. That Scene where they watched Regius Speak was already on the Ship if you look closely and except for her and maybe 1-2 others the rest appeared again in the next scene. Maybe she got cold feet and didn't input her data after all.
    On a side note they let Cast stand instead of sitting with everyone else, talk about rude :-/ It's not as if there weren't free seats.

    Since we don't really need the short boss fight, Dia can just activate the rod and free Elder...so most likely no. Though, I'll admit, might be fun to See Getty's "I am a Genius! Oh No!" moment. Honestly, if he was seeking power, or thought he could absorb him and overpower him would sound less stupid "Come possess me! I'll make you my bitch Elder!" Or well, making him actually try to fight or do something to Elder or something instead of just well going from Genius to Oh no instantly.

    Yeeeeeeep. I think they took a few lessons from Goblin Slayer, and knew "we have to have a few shocking things to hook people". Granted, I wouldn't mind if they took a darker tone, but I really hope they don't pull off a Walking Dead where everyone not the main characters will die.

    The way the story is presented is radically different from the game's story. It's not a bad thing: after all, it's been 6 years since this story was presented.

    Also, now I want nights in the Naberius Forest.

    EDIT: I like how they are expanding the lore: every ARKS member is able to absorb darker particles, Matoi and MC being the ones with the maximum storage capacity without being visibly affected.
    I want nights too. You could make that the harder version of the forest, or a rare event that "you wind up at night, things will go badly" Like how you have a chance to wind up in the Darker Den during TAs.

    I always did think that, that all ARKs did suck up some darker particles, like everything else that kills darkers. Just for us our photonic weapons destroy the D-factor cells so our absorption is minimal, while others get all the D-factor they kill, leading to messy deaths.

    Honestly, the one thing I think that whole thing needed was Getty and Lisa telling her that she needs to be purified, or "You gotta stop skipping purification". That she made the mistake of not getting purified of D-factor (which I'd assume, the Oracle-ites know how to deal with), and she got too corrupted. Also, when she snapped they should have shown an infection core somewhere starting to grow on her...

    How? Sounds okay to me.

So really having actual violence depicted in the anime to show that this isn't a world full of roses is the best way to go about it. They can't adapt every optional dialogue and whatever to make you progressively understand that through hints because yeah medium differences, so it's better to shove that fact in the audience's face from the get-go.
    Very true...but honestly, things like the Patty and Tea encounter and then finding a mutilated corpse feels a bit jarring. Or maybe I kinda look at some of the story and everyone feels so milk-toast and plain. We're only two episodes in, so hopefully these characters instead get fleshed out and feel more like characters then just boring tropes.

    To me, it seems like the one criticism I have about PSO2, they have no sense of scale. "We lost 40% of our military force from a single engagement with the photoner fleet, that's totally something we'll never bring up or freak out about again". So in that sense, the anime is living up to the spirit of the game? I'm chill with it, not a big deal to me.

    Thanks for that link...but I can't view it in my area.

    Is there a legal way to get around and see this version of the translation? I keep hearing Darker and D-factor and it keeps irking me, like a man with OCD noticing a slight stain on his shirt. Sure you can live without it, but it's a constant itch.

    Have you tried VPN and connect to any Southeast Asian server?
    If you are referring to the species, "Darker" was correct. D-Factor is a dark virus (or dark photon) in PSO1.

    Edit:
    To be more specific, Darker Factor is the PSO2 term for D-Factor (PSO1), and I think they both have the same definition.

    Technically your last bit was his plan. he wanted to fight Elder like the Ax Crazy Idiot he is (I think to prove himself he is now strong enough) ... and Elder simply said Lolno YOINK and then Getty was Elder
