Your title should really specify that this is unofficial. I took it the wrong way for a second!
I honestly cast aside the notion of dubbing the anime with the game's vocals as too messy, but you seem to be making it work as well it could be done! I for one will look forward to how you reconcile the two sources! The best kind of challenge.

Having seen the first episode for the second time, the only nitpick I can give is that you do not need to dub over every grunt and fall with battle quotes; Raine did not need to say anything when she chucked the chalk at Lloyd. The odd bit where the game's annunciation of a line is different from the anime's is kind of inevitable.
Beyond that, I can only doubly stress how impressed I am with how patient you would have to be finish this! Your filling in lost dialog with memories was spot on, I could see you getting a lot of mileage out of that. Where did you get the OVA's background music?

Okay, so, I kind of want to give you the biggest hug ever. This is so awesome, and I can't wait to watch each episode as they come out! I've only watched the trailer so far, but I'll definitely be checking out the first episode when I have a free moment. Keep up the awesome work!

Well played. I freely confess I was waiting for "Divine Justice!" despite knowing better. I would have given "Judgement" reverb, but watching episode 4 a second time, I think you made the right choice.
My appreciation for your filling in blanks and openings and with the game's expository dialog has only increased: I have a friend who is interested in the game (currently put off by other games and the sub-par state of the PC port) who is eating these up. Best part is, he missed the fine print and thought it was official until I told him the truth! So you're helping at least one person!
I read the Q & A on your tumblr, but I have to ask; where did you get the BGM? I don't know if the OVA's music was ever released, and I cannot imagine every tune plays at length without voice overs.
