ToS OVA German Trailer

Amazon.de has a trailer up for the German dub of Tales of Symphonia The Animation. Go to the page for it there, check under the image and click the video to see it. It's mostly Colette speaking with Tenkuu no Canaria by Nana Mizuki playing over part of it, but it's something.

ToZ the X to air in Summer

According to an image posted by yinyi982 on Twitter, the anime Tales of Zestiria the X is supposed to start airing this summer. News about the anime is scheduled to be given at Anime Japan this weekend so I'll keep an eye out in case we get anything important.

ToB-Localized Magilou & Bienfu Info

The English Tales of series blog has updated with a Tales of Berseria piece outlining information on Magilou and Bienfu. This doesn't include the Break Soul info recently, but they'll probably eventually get to that. Copy/pasted below, but screenshots are at the link:

Magilou
(Japanese site link)

“I suppose you’ll never understand. People can be so miserable. Not that it matters, really.”
Gender: Female
Age: Unknown
Height: 160cm
Weapon: Guardian
Fighting type: Witch
Tribe: Human
Character Voice played by: Satomi Sato

Magilou is a mysterious woman who introduces herself as a “great sorceress” and “Head of Menagerie”, even though their reputation is for “unlicensed witchcraft”.

She is easy going and rather reckless at times. Extroverted and chatty, Magilou could break the ice in any party conversation, but there’s something sinister about her: something in the heartless things she says to Velvet, and the callous phrases she can sometimes spout, that hint at an evil edge befitting the title “witch”.

Magilou’s chatty demeanour hides veiled intent behind gibberish, jokes and lies. Though she seems cheerful enough, there is something of a trickster about her. Occasionally her heartless behaviour can uncover great truths.

Her fighting style is a rear guard type and she is great at fire and water artes.

In melee battles, she transforms her guardian into various forms and fights in a skillful way!

Bienfu
(Japanese site link)

“Bieeen! The bad times have returned!”

Gender: Male?
Tribe: Malak
Character Voice played by: Nao Nagasawa

A peculiar malak with a rather unique hat.

Bienfu can happily be called an eccentric with its characteristic style and habit of saying “Bieeen” and “Bad!”

Bienfu seems feeble but thrives on adversity and lives its life with shrewd attention and strong intent. It seems Bienfu and Magilou may have crossed paths before, though not in good circumstances, as whenever it meets her, it is incredibly fearful.

Unlike many other malaks who do not have their own will, Bienfu shows its personality with various facial expressions.

ToAsteria Part 3 PV

A new trailer for the third part of Tales of Asteria has gone up, featuring some anime and more of the theme song "We Belong" by BONNIE PINK.

Yes, I know about the new Berseria scans. I'll get around to that some other time, even if it ends up being after the site updates.

ToB PV 3

The third trailer for Tales of Berseria was uploaded to V Jump's YouTube channel today. The video features a bit of the anime cutscenes as well as the opening theme "BURN" by FLOW.
