THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Barbecue puzzle with Gammon, followed by others. Then she stumped on a switch... He saw someone (the new enemy). They are freely solved the Gusha puzzle. And that guy is resting in a place with the current POG (not enemy anymore).

OP and ED are so cool! Looks like OP shows the mirror self (Irpheus Order) of the Kaito group.

Kaito felt sorry for not keeping the promises (and betraying). Faraway, that enemy is talking...

The academy got blocked, and only Kaito got "invited". He jumped in and the bridge got broken. Mirror puzzle... The new enemy knows about Phi Brain.

Another person "brainwashing" vice-president because president, who she likes, is into Kaito.

His power of bracelet, which without it, activated. There are 3 possibilities and that provoking sentence is the hint?!

And Freecel has the bracelet and claiming he's also the child of Phi Brain. At the end showing the group and that vice president, who challenged Kaito.

Mottox2 Puzzle introduced the mirror puzzle. They got new system with remote control to solve the puzzle and cooperate with internet this season. Closing the door within 1 min. and 30 sec.

I hope Nonnoha does betray Kaito. She is annoying as shit and i wish they toned her down. I wouldnt be surprised of one of them are actually related to Kaito by blood. I'm pretty sure they will talk about his real parents this season.

Pretty awesome start to this second half. Orpheus Order seems compelling and their names, I guess are puns of card games? Free Cell actually sounds cool. I loved how they handled the puzzle and working through it, really thought out and high level. Ultimately, glad my weekly puzzle time is back. The OP from nanovish, Now or Never was instantly addicting and great English, the ED is nice too, almost as good as Hologram.

The opening and ending... I'm probably going to vote them as best opening and ending. They are EPIC.

Great new villians! They look great. Why do the heroes look so... plain in comparison?

And Freecel... I bet he's related to Rook. I mean, look at all that white hair! They look so similar. XD

Improvement from last season already. Nonoha lettin' her hair down = serious shit.

+ good guy turned evil.

Opening and ending are fabulous.

5/5

OP2 > Brain Diver

And by large margins.

I was disappointed by S1, but just bring on S2!

A character who was mention only a few times suddenly becomes a main character. Oh well it's probably only for the next episode.

I don't know why everyone in the show is considering that Kaito gave up the power of Orpheus.
When his Orpheus armband disapeared I took it as Kaito evolved beyond it. He didn't gave it up, he just didn't need it anymore so the armband disapeared on it's own. Kaito became a being superior than any Orpheus user.

I took the armband disapearing as 'the next level'. If the armband didn't allow him to use his feeling and to control his brain properly then by surpassing it he'll achieve a level much greater.
It's the same as training with weight. Your punch might be stronger but it will be harder on you and you might have less control over your body but once you remove the weight you notice that your punch are much stronger and your body feel light and much more in control.

Once he get serious I'm expecting Kaito to uterly destroy this Orpheus order and the only problem I see that could stand in his way is if he has to fight people dear to him, which he probably will have to.
Orpheus order are counting 5 member, the same as Kaito's team (Forgetting Nonoha that can't solve shit) so I still expect a 5vs5 last battle.

Holy! Nonoha hair down = smexy.

I am loving this already.
I loved the Brain Diver from Season 1, now the OP for this... I so LOVE it!!!

I think the animation quality is getting better.
And I cannot believe Free Cell is voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya (Orihara Izaya, Araragi Koyomi)!
Cannot wait to see more.

My PUZZLE TIME starts again!

I loved this episode, it was awesome. I think the history and the villains are great, I hope the producers don't spoil this.

At the first look, I think I will like more this season than the first one. Let's see...

Well at least the puzzles have some explanation this time.
I know I heard the VP's seiyuu before but I can't remember at the moment. Oh well.
Looking forward to the all star seiyuu cast of this Orpheus Order.

Cubics Puzzle: by moving one

6-3=9

8-3=5

YEEEE! solved one
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

^Heh, I paused to solve that one, too.

But yeah, this season is already shaping up to be better than the first in every way, even disregarding glorious Kamiya Hiroshi.

Hahahahah! Shinpachi!! What are you doing there? Until Gintama starts airing again you decided to spread your horizons and be in some other anime?? xD


I loved this first episode, and it promises interesting season. I'm looking forward to see how will they challenge and test characters relationship, especially KaitoNonoha one. Because I ship them like a idiot xD

On the other note, I like that they've shown what's going on with Jin. It appears that he still isn't quite right, which is totally realistic considering what's he been through.

OP and ED are awesome. Love lyrics :3
And can't wait to see how will this with Chie changing sides resolve...If it does...
That much from me x3

Freecell said, that in the next Days or weeks (dunno anymore ._.) all of his friends are going to betray him. So the show might be Kaito solving the puzzles of his friend who are brainwashed by the Orpheus Order (possibly through that earring) and then he gets to fight the Orpheus Order with freecell as the final boss. I hope Rook is coming back at some point. Would be great to see both of them together solving puzzles as a team. As for Freecell's Identity. I somehow think that he is another testsubject like Rook, that wasn't mentioned before, but is kinda jealous because Rook was more interested in Kaito than in him...

I just hope the reason the guy is after Kaito because of some stupid stuff when they were kids, found this stupid already during the first season.
Like the show anyway the puzzles are interesting.
They need to tone down Nonoha she's so annoying and useless.

I loved that opening.

And I agree that Nonoha with hair hair down is something I would really like to see, but it seems like she will betray him...although its hard to think she would.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

Wow, already much better than last season. Great! Nonoha with her hair down = beautiful, hope we get to see her like that in the series too, not just in op/ed.

But did they remove Rook from the story completely? I hope not.

Also, Natsume's voice as a villain is so odd xD <3

God, I hate Cubic.

Seems like the same aweful stuff from before. So I just hope, it'll be 11-13 episodes.
I so don't want to endure this another 2X weeks.

Oh and that part with the vice president was simply embarassing.
A character, that appeared for the first time 5 minutes ago, turning bad. I was so shocked. Dramatic!
Geesh...

Things are getting quite interesting, and looks like some real character growth is on the horizon. Kamiya Hiroshi really has had quite the range of voice work this year. If you count how creepy Koyomi's character was getting then he's almost exclusively doing villains now.

and, and, AND! if the opening is to be believed we might get to see Nonoha loose that bloody hairstyle. I'm excited, on pins and needles, UNIVEEEERSE

I've decided to pick up this show again after trying to find another 25-episode core series. After watching Season 1, I wasn't too satisfied with what I saw but hopefully this Season 2 will live up to its name.

Heh, I found this pretty memorable as well from this episode. Guess, I might watch the OP song more often now.

Keep out ---> Kaito in. Very cleaver.

I also applaud the soundtrack of this sequel. Shit stepped up. This was actually a good episode. Puzzle of Judgement..gf.

The pacing got dramatically worse actually, but well the same atmosphere is still present, I just hope the pacing gets better.
