Haven't read the novels before but I'm looking forward to Jaswant's debut. He looks like the type who can really fight with the way he is designed.

Rajendra and Jaswant have already appeared in the anime, while Alfried will debut in a future episode of the show's second half.


What? Unless I'm reading that last part incorrectly, that's wrong.

Alfried was saved by the artist in episode 12; She already did "debut."

And - unless the writers get their act together very quickly - is becoming a very annoying character. She has so much more potential than being just a love-struck puppy dog.

I wish Alfreed didn't have such a gaudy and obnoxious color scheme. In an anime filled with muted and dark colors, she really sticks out with her bright colors. It makes her look more "anime" than they the other characters (this show is an anime but still, you get my point).

I have to admit these are really nice designs. I may one day have to read HLOA. I've read FMA, but only up to a point. As to whether I'll take in the series...that's another story entirely.

Manami Numakura as Alfried, a daughter of a Zott clan leader


So is it Alfreed or Alfried?

The name Alfried looks a bit like a Spanish fastfood order "one El-fríedo Pollo please"
