I give up on trying to make discussion posts. OF course it always happens with this show, and of course this show has a weird recap episode in the middle.

Really confusing... I thought they added another episode because of the review, but...

I think the preview was for another season, because they really wrapped things up at the end. Well to a degree.

Boring battle, too much mercy, oblivious friends. Pretty average ending.
(Average 5/10)

i love it 10/10. I love how the commander know that Rikou was going to beat tamaki.
Kyokasuigetsu is Aizen's zanpakuto which controll all senses that was cool too.

Average battle, average show, and a rather average ending. There's a second season which I'll probably end up watching, so I hope it's better. A lot better.

It'd need better fight scenes, a better plot, more Yuki-onna x Rikuo, more Kurotabo, more Night Rikuo, less Day Rikuo, and less random episodes that don't fit in.

The ending probably isn't as bad as I'm making it out to be, but this show just wasn't as interesting as I thought it was going to be. (Uhm... at least I'm pretty sure this was the last episode. Everyone else being confused is making me second-guess myself ^_^'')

Next episode seems to be a recap. At most, we will get to see a certain scene that got cut (which partially showed one of main villains of the story... and the one responsible for events of Shikoku arc) and maybe a cliffhanger for the upcoming arc.

At worst, it will be just a recap and nothing more.

You just described the upcoming arc ;)
Unless the Director decides to do some major changes that is...

This was a good ep. It seemed like the end, but apparently there's still one more ep to go.

Checking on both official website of anime, TVs websites and ANN, this episode is listed as being the 24th, with the last airing on the 27th. The confusion was made probably because VizMedia insists on considering episode 12.5 the 13th, so that their 26th episode will be actually the 25th. And since snatchers take their stuff from them...hence the confusion.

Anyway, the preview at the end of the episode shows that probably next episode will be some kind of summary...hoping I'm wrong and they show more....

"Kyoukasuigetsu"
When I first heard it I was like "where the hell did I heard this?", and yes, it's Aizen's Zanpakutou name, reference or not, the fact is that "Kyoukasuigetsu" means "Mirror flower, Water moon", totally fitting for Rikuo I think ^_^

I thought that the last 2 episodes were adapted rather well.

I want to give the series a 9, but I simply can't knowing what it could have turned out like if it followed the manga without too many changes. So, I have to give it a 8.

Also, as the next episode isn't numbered on the official site, I've submitted a request to change episode count back to 24, and the recap count to 2.

haha that's what's I thought the first time I read this chapter in the manga, and after seeing it in the anime . . the comparisons grew. eager to see what they may do with the 2nd season though.

ANN has the next episode being the final one: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=11174&page=25

I thought this episode was really well handled and a good end to the arc. Regardless with what happens next week, I'm onboard with and looking forward to the second season.

Don't really need an other ep, this was a fine conclusion for the arc. But oh wells, as long as I get to see Yuki-Onna animated.

i really hope that they don't destroy the scene where night and day rikuo mix into 1 but they really destroy it "sigh"

and why there must be a recap for the end
i think it's better if they show us the special episode from the JSAT


well i hope they learn and don't make the same mistake in the 2nd season when we will see the night and dayt rikuo become 1

They didn't tell us about sanmoto and the maouh hammer, weird !? But today it was fine and it looks kyouka suigetsu is a useful technique.

Can't wait for the 2nd season hope it will be better

I liked the comment about Yuki-onna's real age... so maybe she really isn't in the running. (Of course, Rikou, once Supreme Commander, could always keep her as a concumbine.. <g> )

"The Afterglow of Youth" the title of the now, last episode? Looks like there will be 26 like I had posted prior. ;) Anyway, sounds good to yours truly. A good episode this latest one, with Rukio going at it with Lord Tamazuki. Not much of a battle but finally, Rukio seems to have fully accepted his destiny and can now, embrace both night and day...the gang were relegated to the dojo while the Nura Clan engages in another one of their infamous Sake drinkin Yokai fiestas...love it! :P And the girls, so pretty and funny, busty, Kujeru-chan and Yuki-hime, talking and admiring their Master...all in all, an almost very good conclusion. ;)

Next episode is a recap, which most likely means that both AniDB and MAL will be changing the episode count from 25 to 24 and then adding a separate entry for the recap episode.

Well, I though it was done rather well, though we could do without the cherry blossoms.
But why did they removed one important foreshadowing that was essential for the Kyoto arc >_> If it will be placed at a much better strategic point in the story rather than here then I'll forgive them. Placing it at this point in the manga was rather far from where it was suppose to be needed later on. Still, it was essential though, gives a more feeling of a second season.

Overall, it was good. Not bad but it could have been better if they stuck to the manga without making a lot of changes to it. Changes are fine like in the Gyuki arc but Shikoku arc was too mangled that it didn't turn out well. Ending saved it a bit so 8/10.

Expecting that second season will turn out better than this one.

I think i am going to switch to reading the manga, because shounen are frustrating when they are long and drawn out. I can deal with it when it is kept to 5 minutes of actual worth a week. They really ruined my enthusiasm i had at the start.

7/10 yeah, the ending and the 2nd half of the series is good, but i can still remember the episodes where rikou pissed me off, being an indecisive heir, well anyways, and the song on the last part is also good, i want to have a copy of that!

As much as I enjoyed it, I also disliked this series. Basically because of all the random crap they pull out in the middle of battle.

The first fights few fights I didn't mind, they're usually introducing each characters abilities, but once it got to the Shikoku Arc, when the crow trio OHKO'd Ho-Ou or w/e his name was by reflecting his own attack, I pretty much wtf'd. Previous episode, I manage to ignore the fact of them making Onna Yuki randomly using a naginata out of no where, but when Rikou pretty much went god mode in Ep 25, I gave up on the fight scenes. When they're about too lose, I'll just expect them to pull some random crap out of their pocket and OHKO the antagonist of the current arc.

The only main thing I really enjoyed watching was having Rikuo juggle betweens keeping his secrets from his friends while being the next leader/commander/master of the Nurarihyon Household.

Regardless, I will be watching season two.

7/10 for me. I rarely go under 5/10, so just see it as 2/5 for me.

Creating ice weapons is one of Tsurara's abilities. Don't think it was shown tough.

True. In manga, Rikuo's blood was mixing (which made him look like a mix of his Day and Night form) and he instinctively used a certain ability he couldn't before (and no, he didn't do it while looking cool)... and which he will later learn how to use tough the strength of later enemies won't allow it to be overpowered.

I dont know why, but I just REALLY hate Kana sometimes. Or most of the time.
Ok, just had to say that.

Since that was the basically the first arc, I wasn't expecting much, but I am hoping the second season will be better~

Ooh, really? Well, let's hope the director doesn't screw it up, then.

The part with the puppy and Tamazuki near the end there - I didn't catch that as possibly being Inugami reincarnated the first time. Looks like that episode 24.5 recap wasn't completely a waste after all.
