The movie centers on Yuri and Flynn as they become new recruits in the Imperial Knights. For those who played the game, you know that Yuri left the knights for their preference to help only the noble class while leaving the less affluent citizens fend for themselves. The Imperial Knights themselves are mostly made up of people from greater and lesser families of the nobility, while Yuri and Flynn were raised in the poorer area of the city.
The movie has the appearances of many important characters in the game. Of course there is Yuri and Flynn, but Rita, Raven, and Estelle are shown, although they are far less important to the plot of the movie than the game (Estelle was the most important character of the game besides Yuri; in the movie she shows for about two minutes). Unfortunately, this takes place before Estelle meets Yuri; their relationship is my favorite part of the game. Alexei is the Commandant of the Knights just like in the game. And of course Repede is there as just a puppy.
As I have only seen the Japanese version so far, I don't know how well the dub is going to be, but Funimation released their casting list and Yuri is still voiced by Troy Baker, who did an excellent job voicing him in the game. Flynn also has the same voice actor as in the game.Read more ›
As for the quality of the film itself, it employes several great characters, and especially follows the story of Yuri Lowell and his ultimate quest to save the planet. The Japanse Dub is great, so I hope the English one will be as well.
Thanks again to Funimation for releasing such a great movie, and hopefully they will come out with the Symphonia OVA's as well
And thanks again for looking, and I hope this helps you.
