You may attain the level of wise old geezer by playing the games but you're not missing anything really where the anime series itself is concerned. It stands on its own.

Yeah, yeah it's not in depth like the game. Still it's something for the gamers to get their knickers in a twist and ultimately just a new mecha series to be viewed in a long chain of game adaptation into anime.


The anime deviates significantly from the original storyline in both cases, and a lot is lost in the process. Regardless, the fact of the matter is that the anime was produced primarily to appeal to fans of the SRW games, even people who watched Divine Wars but didn't play the games wouldn't have a clue what was going on at the start of OGIN. People who aren't familiar with the Alpha games would have been clueless about the opening scene in the first episode of DW and the final battle, just for two major examples.

I'm not really after every single detailed thing that happened years ago with the characters. I believe the flashbacks are self- explanatory enough and happen just when you need them. Just so long as it's cohesive it's all good or me. Which it is and fills my need to know more than satisfactory.

I'm not dissing the games. I would get it in a heartbeat though they are only available on the consoles I don't have. PM me personally if they announce they'll make the SRW: OG available on PS3.

Well, I have neither played the game nor watched SRW OG: Divine Wars.

I have to confess that I was really confused with the plot, but graphics and fighting caused me to continue watching. The moment I caught up with 10th or 11th episode, things became clearer and now, at the 24th episode, I have no problems with understanding SRW OG: The Ispectors.

If you have rewatch the series, it becomes clear on several matters. It isn't exactly as complicate as it ought to be but they just have a knack of scripting the thing such that you have to know the future events in order to know what they wish to infer
